We’re never doing that again at the following link.
Before you listen to this episode let me first apologize. Sometimes things will play out in our head better than they actually do when we implement those ideas. The song choices for this episode is the VERY best example I can give of such a situation. Never again. I swear it.
Gaming is about to get busy. This past week alone saw the release of at least THREE games I know of that had substantial interests. Sniper Elite 4 – which we discuss on the show, Halo Wars 2, and For Honor. This current week is sort of a…buffer. A time to make use of and get in all we can of whatever we wanted to play. Next week is Horizon Zero Dawn. The reviews and general conversation seems to put this one in a good light. One not to miss kind of a thing. Then the week after is the Switch release which means Zelda. That early March release should give you plenty of time before Mass Effect at the end of the month.
And that’s only the big hitters and even then I feel like I’m leaving stuff out. In between there’s PC releases of all kinds and probably some lesser known things that could come in under the radar and surprise us all.
To the publishers – I know we used to beg you to step out from the Fall/Holiday release schedule and you did that. Keep that going, but now back it off the early year release as well. Summer is still a massive drought of nothing new worth playing. Fill that in from time to time and you’ll see that releasing a good game in ANY month of the year will still get you the returns you want. We’ll buy it. We totally will. But throwing them in the crowded early and late months of the year doesn’t do you any favors.
