Yeah, so I know this won’t be everyone’s taste, but I thought I’d bring it up in case no one else was talking about it. Gate Zero is a sort of open world, exploration type game that takes place in ancient Israel, where you get witness various Biblical events unfold. Basically involves time shenanigans similar to the Assassin’s Creed games, you know you’re there in mind, but you’re body is in chair somewhere. Anyway, beyond just exploration, it also allows you to customize your character, there’s some puzzle and stealth elements in the game, dialogue options even (though I’m not sure how in depth). It’s meant to be family friendly, so probably pretty basic, but I still believe the premise on it could make for a neat game. I’ve always wanted to see a Bible game and for that reason, I hope it gets the funding needed. They have a Kickstarter that ends July 6th (well, 5th midnight, but same deal). They also have a trailer on Youtube and the game itself will be on Steam, with optional multiplayer via Mobile. So yeah, there it is, just thought I’d bring that to ya’lls attention for anyone who might be interested. If not that’s cool, maybe you know someone who is or would be.
Yeah, 2020 is nearly over, but why not start one to at least lead into a fresh thread in 2021.
So, I used to take part in this kind of thread on another board. I always found it a fun thing that we could all come back and refresh every couple of months. Also good for generation discussion on recommendations and warnings for games. This might be a little annoying to update, since the forums don’t allow us to edit our posts after an hour, but hopefully they will be taking out requests into account sooner rather than later.
Without further delay here is my break down. Categories are subject to change per someone’s post/taste of representation. My following break down is how I always did it.
.hack//GU Last Recode: I am a huge .hack fan. Played these games over and over again for years, and I finally grabbed this for under $20 a few months ago. I step into this when I am feeling like I wanna go home again in a game.
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey: Very much enjoying this, but I can only do it in batches cuz it does get repetitive. I’ve put well over 100 hours in at this point, but probably only halfway through.
World or Warcraft: I didn’t wanna do this, but some of my guildies wanted to do it, since there is nothing else to really play MMO wise these days. I gave in a couple months ago, but so far, I don’t like it. Shadowlands is its one chance to make me interested.
Crusader Kings III: I play too much of this…too much…
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky 1: I really need to finish this…then play 2 and 3, because I’m told to fully enjoy Trails of Cold Steel you need to get these done.
Waiting to Play:
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 1-3: I’m sitting on these til I get 4 and finish Trails in the Sky. I’m very much looking forward to these.
Waiting to buy:
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4: duh
Pathfinder: Kingmaker: I think this will fill my need for world building plus party groups.
Kingdom Come Deliverance: Royal Edition: I’ve avoided buying this game for years, but I think I’m ready for this all in one edition.
Final Fantasy VII: Remake: just been waiting for a price drop. Didn’t wanna pay $60 for it. I have a good feeling about Black Friday.
Ghost of Tsushima: I’ll get this eventually, but when the price is under $30. As cool as it is, not worth $60 for me.
On the Distant Horizon:
Blue Protocal: AAA MMO from Bandai Namco getting a world wise release. They are putting a whole lot of love and attention into this with listening to what fans want. This is the next major game I’m putting my guild into, looking to start a whole new full push. If this game is what I think it might be, then it may end up being amazing. I have a soft spot for FF: 14 and SWTOR, but I think this game will be amazing with its promise.
I open the floor for everyone to share their lists and continue to discuss and update them.
