2017 is almost over, and while there remain many great unplayed games from this year for most of us, 2018 is nearly upon us.

What are your most anticipated titles that are likely to release next year? fun one, which do you think will be the biggest let down?

Ace Combat 7, Dragon Quest 11, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Spiderman, Project Octopath Traveler, and Vampyr are all up there for me. also trails of cold steel 3 along with 1 and 2 hitting ps4. and im sure im forgetting some as I quickly bang this out.
of these, Vampyr I think has the most potential to let me down, maybe. - KCD ended up being the one that's let me down the most so far as of july, its just not good on consoles because they didnt put enough time into adjusting the systems to a controller, but im gonna try again on PC later. but vampyr was janky too, great concepts though as an IP it has potential, feels like an old game

overall I think the biggest disappointment for me will be sea of thieves, that has been high up there for me since its announcement but the more that comes out about it the more its not what I hoped for in nearly any way. I guess i'll just keep playing sid meiers pirates, maybe look into some mods for it to satisfy my needs for good fun pirating adventures.


predictions.....just throw some fun crap out and we'll see if any of it sticks.
-pokemon switch is huge- it will be next year lol, so this will push to next years topic
-smash switch announced - got it, but not exactly a stretch to expect it
-kingdom hearts 3 actually releases - missed it THAT much...maybe
-FF7 remake dated for 2019, lots of new info and footage at E3 and throughout the year - with the project scrapping and starting over we might see it for the 25th anniversary in 2022 lol
-Bethesda finally reveals Starfield, but does not reveal ES6. - half right
-Cyberpunk 2077 gets some new info revealed but still no real trailer, indicating that the game is 2020 at best, and cdpr's last game on current gen consoles before shifting to what comes next - fairly accurate, still no gameplay trailer to the public, behind closed doors demo was pre-alpha, looks like 2020 at best is likely though
-Red dead redemption 2 slips again, but only a little. got it..for now
-far cry 5 ends up being surprisingly good, like really good - eh, its very ok, but not what I expected
-mainline fire emblem for switch revealed - got it, yay!!!
-Ubisoft and Ancel announce that Wild just wasn't working and focus is being moved to BG&E2 (I don't want that to happen, but no news about this game at all has me worried)not exactly announced, but no news on wild still feels bad
-Dragon Age 4 revealed but is a ways off - got it, 3 years out
-the backlash from battlefront 2 causes problems for Anthem, EA blames bioware seems to be a thing, much content I see for anthem seems to indicate heavy skepticism for anthem
-switch virtual console is revealed, and our Wii U VC purchases carry (hey I can dream lol) - once again Nintendo shows me why I didn't buy a Nintendo console for over 15 years
-more remasters (I know this one is a stretch) ya, but I mean ..that's gonna be forever. im betting ps5 and next gen is full of them too
-ports of games from the last year or two to the switch, LOTS of them. indies and AAA's alike. (Furi was announced today) also not a stretch, im sure it will continue
-no new consoles revealed - accurate, and I don't think we see them next year either
-will see Nintendo begin to have all its main teams focus on switch and 3ds continues to dwindle. (this may already be the case?) - somewhat? 3ds games, at least major ones, seem to be slowing, but support for the system til 2020 was announced

Not sure if it's been mentioned but I'm hoping to email jam and earl back in the groove is actually released and not abandoned.

Got picked up by adult networks I think(?) and was supposed to be relearned of 2017 but got pushed TiVo an unspecified 2018 date. Seems like an improved version of the first one which was easily the best.

Right now these 2 are all I care about: God of War (fingers crossed for March) and the Shadow of the Colossus remake (Feb).

I also expect Spider-man to be outstanding...and that looked pretty solid so I expect it out maybe in the summer?

alright reopening... we have already seen two good ones in monster hunter world and dbz fighterz... did they live up for you?

the first game from my initial list hits in two weeks, kingdom come deliverance. so we'll see .....

looks like so far my prediction of RDR2 slipping happened, but I said only a little, and its more than that. the CP2077 twitter did come alive again ,but not much more. and Nintendo made some announcements but seem to be waiting to make the really big ones, I think E3 could be huge this year, harkening back to the years when every company really blew the roof off.

I agree about E3 being huge this year. I think both Sony and Nintendo will have really impressive showings and i'm cautiously optimistic about what Microsoft will show. If they can acquire one of these big publishers then it completely changes the landscape. And if Bethesda has another conference maybe we'll see the new Elder Scrolls? Or a new Doom? Or maybe something completely unexpected.

I'm still thinking starfield for Bethesda..it's been awhile since fallout 4 it may be time for them to show something big..but they keep saying a couple other big projects have to finish before we get es6.. could those have been eso Morrowind and starfield? Evil within and wolf/doom are smaller in comparison to their huge outings.

If Microsoft acquires a big player it will definitely change things..the rumored EA aquisition would be beyond huge. That gets you so many things..and if they chose to make them exclusive...wow.

I've never heard of Starfield. Going to have to look that one up.

EDIT: A sci-fi game open world game in the same vain as Fallout...that could be really cool!

ya bethesda's spin on a mass effect style game, im def interested.

there is a fan theory that its a big connected world, and that fallout is actually the past and elder scrolls the far far far future, but thats mostly because of a couple easter eggs more than any real proof ive seen, like a nirnroot in fallout.

re-opening


so where are you on your predictions? anything come true, a game you were looking forward to let you down?

so far only one of my most anticipated games has released, Kingdom Come, while its what I expected, it hasn't quite lived up. ive put it down til a few patches hit. parts of the game are not fun at all, but they have been supporting the game hard and have already patched a few things

sea of thieves I predicted to disappoint me, I missed the beta but good things are being said, and I guess we will find out soon!


some of my predictions have updates

-Cyberpunk 2077 gets some new info revealed but still no real trailer, indicating that the game is 2020 at best, and cdpr's last game on current gen consoles before shifting to what comes next. - they have booked time at E3, so this looks to happen.

-Red dead redemption 2 slips again, but only a little. - it slipped half a year so missed this one a little.

-mainline fire emblem for switch revealed - at todays direct? ive heard rumors.

-ports of games from the last year or two to the switch, LOTS of them. indies and AAA's alike. - we did get LA noire and looks like diablo 3 is gonna be announced today

Recent pleasant surprise for me was Splinter Cell Conviction coming to X1 BC. I always wanted to play it and never did, and watched the steady stream of BC releases specifically looking for this one title to be named. I was floored when that happened! It's quite good and a total steal for a few bucks on ebay.

Colossus was great, totally in-line with my expectations.

God of War seems legit to finally release 4/20. I really can't wait for that one.

Still no real word on Spider-man so I'm guessing it'll make an appearance at E3 and then release in time for the holidays? Sure seems like it's been in-progress for long enough.

so spiderman September 7th, with dragon quest 11 right on top of it, and spyro right behind that. E3 is starting to loom over us, I still think my prediction that its huge this year will pan out, I am excited for it.

looks like my smash switch prediction hit, though that was far from a stretch.
far cry 5 seems to be getting pretty solid reviews and im hearing a lot of good things, I think im gonna make it my next game after NNK2.

kinda fun to look back on this and see where we were only a few weeks and months ago and what we have learned since.

I'm still hoping and praying for footage for Cyberpunk 2077. I was reading this morning that Microsoft has the marketing rights for the game so maybe they'll blow it out at their press conference?

maybe it will show at the MS conference but the holy prophets have supposedly booked some of their own time at the show so maybe we will really get a big look at it! it will remain my #1 most anticipated until its release, they are the one company I trust the most to be sure.

holiday season is going to be craaaazy

Well Apple has said nothing about a gaming console😐

Right now Monster Hunter is surely on the shortlist for GotY. I new it was going to be great. I didn't know it was going to sell like gangbusters.

What is DQXI release date officially

All I want from 2018 is some news on Dragon Age 4, Cyberpunk 2077 and to swing around New York like it's Spider-Man 2 all over again. Literally all I care about right now.

My expectation of E3 is that we're going to be getting ALOT of PS1 & PS2 remakes. The gaming landscape just kind of has that feeling right now.

Unfortunately, I don't think we'll get any info about Dragon Age 4. It seems the majority of the studio is working on Anthem.

The Monster Hunter sales are insane. Capcom knocked it out of the park with RE7 last year (over 5 million sold) and they've done it again with Monster Hunter World. I think they've got their mojo back and i'm looking forward to seeing what the Resident Evil 2 remake looks like.

Oh and the date for DQ11 is September 4. 4 days before Spider-Man and a week after Yakuza Kiwami 2. The lineup for the second half of 2018 is already insane and we still don't know what Nintendo has planned.

i know im in the minority on monster hunter, i didnt really get into it, but with all the games we have coming this year i wouldnt be surprised to see it miss the goty list but im sure it will be there. competition will be stiff this year for sure.

i dont think we get anything on dragon age 4, its still so early they may not have much to show and they will be all about anthem, if anthem fails, we may not even get dragon age 4, bioware is in real trouble if anthem isnt successful EA may shut them down, they have no love for any form of history and apparently they paid 800million for it so they not be able find a buyer for them in their current state.... if it fails microsoft should swoop in and buy them, and then clean house of the ea people and make them a second party dev and let them go back to the days of when they made great games for og xbox like kotor and jade empire and into the next era with mass effect.

september is crazy insane and october and november may be just as much so once we get schedules at E3... my bank account hurts already

I'm really glad thay western and Japanese games are firing on all cylinders. In my opinion this is the greatest era of console gaming ever.

Even better than 16bit and 32 but eras

i agree, ive been calling this the new golden age of gaming. so much really good stuff, ive been doing a lot of emulation and stuff messing around with emulators and old stuff here and there as i find it interesting, and it makes you appreciate to a greater level than before what we have now and just how good it really is. this gen has yielded my top 2 games of all time, and ive been at this since 2600/NES. there are so many good games from the east and west, 3 very good consoles all with great experiences.

I think for a while people were fixated on the past especially people our age. I for a while was really stuck on my JRPGs being traditional and didn't care very much for alot of western games than I just decided hey it's time to take some time off, broaden my perspectives and I've found out I enjoy games a whole lot more now.

I enjoy a whole range of genres now.

same, jrpgs will always be special but its good to take a break from any genre at times, after a couple long games or two i like to decompress with something like an assassins creed or something, which i mean arent short, but not 100 hour persona 5 type things

The witcher 3.. so far and away the greatest of all time. Persona 5 behind that ..so far that the witcher can't see it. It's that good. If you'd told me a couple years ago that not one but two games would be able to dethrone ff7 I'd have never believed you

No game this gen has managed to come close to dethroning my two favorite games, those being Skies of Arcadia and Banjo Kazooie. Games have become more cinematic then they have in the past and the more that happens the less I've enjoyed them. I have played some amazing games this generation, but none that have been more satisfying and enjoyable as those I've played in the past.

The witcher def changed me on that.. that series is just so spectacular, 1 is nearly unplayable by modern standards and 2 is kinda clunky..but 3 is perfect in every way. It's not for everyone and not everyone feels that way but if youre on that side of the fence nothing may ever equal it. In so aware no matter what I watch..play..read..that it's inferior in some way to the experience of the witcher. The books are spectacular as well and I don't find much time to read these days but they are amazing.

I dethroned Castlevania SotN as my favorite game of all time for the Witcher 3. I replayed SotN and it became my favorite again.

But still Witcher 3 jesus what a legendarily grear game.
