2 months left of the year with a pretty busy release schedule ahead. Which games are you guys planning to pick up? or have already pre-ordered?

Here are some of them:
  • Anno 2205 (PC)
  • Need for Speed (PS4/XBO)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III (All)
  • Fallout 4 (PC/PS4/XBO)
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (XBO)
  • StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void (PC)
  • Football Manager 2016 (PC)
  • Star Wars: Battlefront (PC/PS4/XBO)
  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate (PC)
  • Bloodborne: The Old Hunters (PS4)
  • Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash [WiiU]
  • Just Cause 3 (PC/PS4/XBO)
  • Rainbow Six Siege (PC/PS4/XBO)
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X [WiiU]
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon World [PC]
  • Yakuza 5 [PS3]

Me?
SP: Anno 2205, Fallout 4, AC Syndicate & the Bloodborne expansion.
MP: SW: Battlefront & R6 Siege

Interested in Just Cause 3 & RCTW too but (depending on reviews & player impressions) will pick those up in a sale at some point. Would be getting RotTR as well if it wasn't Xbone only for now. Damn them :p
Yakuza 5 is slated for mid-Nov but no exact date yet. Won't be buying it at release as I still need to play Yakuza 4 but will be getting it asap.

- I expect Fallout 4 will be a popular choice here but whilst I'm really excited for that too, I will be honest, I don't expect it to live up to The Witcher 3 or even come close to matching it. I'm sure it'll still be great though.
- AC Unity was quite disappointing on the whole but I loved Rogue (to my surprise), so gonna give Syndicate a go. The setting of this is easily my favourite of the entire series so they better not <censored> it up.
- New Anno looks great from the vids I've watched (and beautiful!). We don't get enough games like this either so should add some variety to my playlist.
- Bloodborne expansion will be a must for me. Main game was magnificent and if it wasn't for TW3 this would have been my GOTY. Will help ease the wait for Dark Souls III too. Gonna have to replay the main game in order to reach whatever point the expansion content begins though I guess.
- Battlefront & R6 as I need some multiplayer games in there too. The SW:BF beta was one of the most enjoyable (and smoothest) beta's I've played tbh and left me annoyed as the game wasn't out yet lol. Also whilst the R6 beta had quite a few probs with it, most were to do with the servers & matchmaking rather than the game itself. Those aside, it was actually pretty fun and something I'd like to play more of.

Hope some of you will consider picking SW:BF up for a STR multiplayer game too, if you weren't already :)


Lots to look forward to still, anyway! This year has been fantastic.

I've actually just cancelled everything I had pre-ordered for the next couple of months, because my backlog is so huge right now and progress with The Witcher 3 is going so slow...

I don't want to be paying full price for more stuff I won't play for 6 months. I'll pick some of these up eventually, but not any time soon!

No Battlefront, Anny? Can understand not pre-ordering Fallout 4 etc if you're still not done with TW3. For one they'd just sit there, so not much point in getting them day one. It's not like you're going to want to go straight from one RPG (or lengthy game) to another either I guess. SW:BF though? Something to play with peeps here every now and then? :)

Been a long time since I played anything with ya too! Other than that one game of SR4 we did one evening, I think it's probably 2012 with TOR?

I have to try <3
So hard getting people to play stuff these days. Tried it with WildStar & failed. Tried it with BF4. Even tried to get more people into Star Citizen and people have actually backed that. Maybe it's just me? lol
