We're already through the first quarter of 2017, but there's many more games to get released before it is over. Let's hear what you're excited about for the rest of the year!
But since its about the most "anticipated" games, we'll have to rule out what's already out.
This means none of the following games (among others) should be posted here:
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Kingdom Hearts XX remakes
- Tales of Berseria
- Resident Evil 7
- Yakuza 0
- Horizon: Zero Dawn
- Torment: Tides of Numenera
- NieR: Automata
- Mass Effect: Andromeda
- Night in the Woods
- etc, the list will obviously grow as the year progresses. If you've played the game already, don't post about it.
The only exception to that rule that I'll allow is for an upcoming launch on a different platform (e.g. a game is announced for PC after being out on consoles for a couple of months), or for games that have released in Japan already, but are yet to launch in english-speaking territories (for example Persona 5). Major DLC expansions may still count.
For a nice list of games released or releasing in 2017, feel free to refer to Wikipedia
Some examples of what's yet to come:
- Persona 5
- Outlast 2
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
- Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood
- Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
- Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
- The Bard's Tale IV
- Call of Cthulhu
- Divinity: Original Sin 2
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Telltale Series
- Nights of Azure 2
- Oxygen Not Included
- South Park: The Fractured but Whole
- Annual Franchise XYZ
- and more
So what are your picks?
Merciless. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colours. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter has a last fight. Even one made of stone.
Gotta say, this is a pretty great book so far. More introspective than action-focused, and the relationship between Task the Golem and the girl Lesky is refreshing and cute.
I got a pre-release review copy from the author. The book is due next week I believe. I'll hopefully finish it before then so I can have my review go live on launch day.
Honestly, looking back, the mod application text was never as important when selecting new candidates as looking at the overall activity, attitude and effort the candidates showed on the site. The applications can give a lot of decent information that helps, like about timezones, possibly age, schedules, future motivations and ideas for what you can bring to the site as part of staff, but as long as you don't half-ass the application and make a joke out of it (which has happened before), the quality of it is negligible, especially with known users like you.
So I've been gone what, two years and change and then decide to finally go and change my profile settings to stop with email notifications and shit like that, and what do I find here?
Are you serious? I leave you for a bit and you don't even manage to flourish. You burned through another admin, staff is barely a thing anymore, and even @Kirn is deeply demotivated from trying to bring about a new world order. Has chat ever been this dead? I can't recall.
The same notification and paging bugs are still not fixed, and the Patreon has ridiculous reward tiers (who in their right mind is gonna pay $2000 a MONTH for a deserted site, or $500 for ranger privileges?!)
Guys, I'm disappointed. At least @--Jack-- did well with organizing another writing project. I'm planning on reading what you got going there.
Now, I want to know what exactly went down here in my absence. I don't intend to stay, but I'm curious regardless. How did this happen? Who is still around, who left why, where's the excitement gone to?
Honestly though, I'm just curious what I've missed. I stayed in touch with a few people, but haven't opened the site even once from when I left til yesterday evening. So I haven't seen shit, and I want you to bring me up to date. Give me a history lesson. Talk about the good and the bad so I can dish out some praise as well as scorn.
Make it happen. Enlighten me.
Took him long enough. I was a little disappointed.
@Kirn Glad to be of service. Happy whoring.
