Trials Fusion comes out this week. Oh man. My marriage is over. I'll be homeless in two weeks. I guarantee it. Anyone else as excited about this game as me?
Agarest: Generations of War Zero
What is it? This is like a super JRPG, in that it might be the most Japanese JRPG ever made ever. It's a tactical RPG featuring every trope you can imagine and more. Should you care? I'm going to say no. Not a great example of this genre. Pick up a 3DS instead. That's the home of all the best JRPGs I've played over the last couple of years.
Battle Academy (PC)
What is it? A turn-based strategy based in real-world-ish environments. Should you care? This is definitely something you'd want to look into if you enjoyed games like Advance Wars. Seems like a surprisingly in-depth, well made video game.
What is it? A retro space sim inspired by games like X-Wing, or other space shooters you might have played in the 90s. Should you care? I don't like the look of it. Seems a little generic, a little flat. I could be wrong. This game just made its kickstarter goal a while back and this is the end result.
FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 Champions Edition (360/PS3)
What is it? Oh, I almost forgot this is the year EA cash in on FIFA twice annually! Should you care? I don't think so. I've never liked the 'World Cup'-inbetween-FIFA games. Not that they're lacking in quality, just a bit of a cash grab considering FIFA comes out once a year.
LEGO The Hobbit (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4/PS Vita/3DS/PC)
What is it? Another LEGO game! This month is packed with them. Should you care? I think I'd go for one of the others instead of this.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (PC)
What is it? A 2D puzzle platformer, the latest in the Max and the Magic Marker series. Should you care? I think it looks fantastic, and enjoyed the original. But that's just me. Has suffered fairly mediocre reviews.
Mechanic Escape (PC)
What is it? Mechanic Escape is a hard-as-all-balls 2D platformer in the vein of Super Meat Boy (I guess). Should you care? Well, it doesn't looks as though it matches the quality level of SMB (what does?) That said, it does plug a gap, and looks like a well-polished, well made platformer.
Moebius: Empire Rising (PC)
What is it? A point and click adventure that takes itself quite seriously by the looks of things. Should you care? Aside from the really rubbish name, this game has a bold art direction, and comes from point and click legend Jane Jensen. She has a good track record, good enough to make me interested in this.
The Sly Trilogy (PS Vita)
What is it? It's the Sly Trilogy, in handheld form. Should you care? I love stealth games, and I love platform games. The Sly trilogy has a unique feel to it, and is actually innovative in its own way. I think this is cool.
Trials Fusion (Xbox One/PS4/360)
What is it? Oh dear God it's coming out this week. Oh god oh man. Should you care? This is a potential game of the year for me. Dark Souls II and Trials Fusion within a month of each other spells imminent divorce and forthcoming homelessness for me. It's been fun knowing you all.
