While there does seem to be a little something for everybody coming this month for various systems, there are really just three stand outs for me personally.
Yakuza Kiwami 2, Team Sonic Racing and Total War: Three Kingdoms.
While I still need to get to some of the earlier Yakuza games, a title like Total War: Three Kingdoms seems like a game that is custom-built for me to be excited about day one. A Total War game set in one of my favorite semi-historic times? Do you know how much Romance of the Three Kingdoms I’ve played? Booooooooooy.
Team Sonic Racing is going to just be pure fun on a bun. Team Sumo hasn’t let us down yet, we loved All-Stars Racing, so we doubt they will drop the soap here. I know some folks are disappointed that it isn’t another All-Stars based kart title, but I am sure that Team Sonic Racing will more than make up for it in the game play department. Nothing personal, kid.
While I can see some folks looking forward to RAGE 2, that is certainly not on my must play list. It’s closer to my, “Oh I will play eventually” pile. Which grows month by month.
Something to keep an eye on if you enjoy tycoon games is Rise of Industry. It’s been in Early Access for a time, but if you ignore games in that state then having a nice looking one exit Early Access may be worth putting on your radar.
What games are you looking forward to coming out?
