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?
