With a new year comes new expectations for gaming. Some of these expectations of for returns of popular series, others are for the ever advancing goals in hardware development. With a new year just getting started, we look to turn our gazes towards what to look forward to this year. While most of our titles may be only geared towards the PS4, we will try our best to fit in titles that are on both, Xbox-One and PS4. That way, everyone feels happy and special. To kick things off with high hopes is the one title that is for sure on PS4 and Xbox-One.
Final Fantasy XV: This title has had one hell of a development cycle. Originally a planned spin off to the 13 name-sake, only to plunge into the development cycle that would make it a brand new entry into the long beloved franchise that is Final Fantasy. Sort of bro’s taking a long drive and part kicking butt and taking names. While I have little to no information on the game, due to not having the day one of type-o, the game is taking some steps to drift away from the typical J-RPG tropes and adds in some nice western based inspirations but still keeping to what Square Enix knows best. The current release date is set for sometime this year and it will be a world wide release. No waiting for it to be ported from Japan to the rest of the world. I want it now please.
No Man’s Sky: This will be a PS4/PC launch and we are finally, finally getting this awesome title. Originally announced very early with the PS4 launch, No Man’s Sky attempts to be the very best space exploration based MMO that it can be. You want to be a pirate, go ahead. Want to just explore and conduct research? Go ahead. While most gameplay elements are yet to be announced or revealed, No Man’s Sky want to be the biggest, procedural generated everything out there. It has one honking huge galaxy and the star systems are populated with planets and moons of various types. It will release in June 2016.
Horizon: Zero Dawn: Lastly, we have a PS4 exclusive from Guerrilla Studios, makers of the Killzone series. This game is an open world game that looks like it has survival elements but it has action. Essentially the Earth got screwed over, all the massive civilizations are gone and what remains of humanity has reverted to tribal days. They have to hunt and gather for a living and with an edible source of robotic wild-life to hunt why not? It looks like the robots decided to replace all wild-life instead of subjugating all humanity as slaves. But who am I to judge, this game looks to launch sometime this year.
While there are plenty more out there to look forward to, these are just a sliver of the few titles that I am personally looking forward to getting my hands on and to also put a lot of hours into. I know I missed some titles so, what ones are you all looking forward to playing or purchasing? Feel free to give us some gaming based love down below! Now, I do apologize, I was supposed to post an anime review this weekend but I got distracted with weather and family duties. I hope to get the review out soon but it really depends on what all is going on. I have been playing Destiny and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn a lot. Like to the point where it is getting in the way with my anime watching schedule. If you play either, feel free to let us know! Would enjoy a gaming time! Any way, this has been Kausus and thank you so much for reading!
