What end of year blockbusters are you grabbing?

Post by MattS on Sun Sep 29, 2013 10:47 am

It's that time of year again when each of the big publishers is going to release its biggest title in order to capitalise on the Christmas spending spree.

That makes it a good time to be a gamer. Rockstar's already pulled the trigger with GTA V, and Nintendo with Wind Waker HD, but we've got a lot more to come - Call of Duty and Battlefield, Assassin's Creed 4, etc etc.

So which ones (if any) are you looking forward to the most?

For me it's Assassin's Creed 4, which I badly want for my PS4... and I reckon Thief would be on the cards, but I don't think it's seeing a release this year. I'm not overly interested in what Nintendo has coming for either the Wii U or 3DS, sadly. It'll be a PlayStation and iPad Christmas for me, I suspect.

...>_> <_< Does Zelda 3DS count? Because that's all I'm grabbing that's not super-niche this year.

I guess that's the closest to a blockbuster the 3DS will be getting, haha.

I agree with you for the most part. There is going to be a load of niche games that will easily win me over the big blockbusters, but after AC3, I will make an exception for AC4. Series has really hit its stride.

Hard to say. I'm interested in teh shooters like CoD and Battlefield - though I know my son's even more interested. They're at the top of his PS4 list.

We have Windwaker as part of the Zelda Wii U bundle we bought, but won't be playing it until Christmas

I'm hoping for NBA 2K14 because I really enjoy the series, but whether I run out and buy it yet or not remains to be seen.

I am viewing this as more my chance to catch up on gaming backlog right now than anything. I worked over Persona 4 Arena and Battlefield 3 quite a bit over the weekend, and Batman Arkham Asylum last week. I'll probably knock out the story modes of black ops II and Modern Warfare 3 this week as well and then see where I'm at, but I've got a bunch of shorter games like that I just hadn't gotten through the campaign modes of.

Er, Pokemon X and Y don't count? :PThose will probably be my most played games until the new year knowing the number of people who still indulge in Pokemon around here. Though I must say, this might be the one to kill my obligation of completing the Pokedex. I could handle 493 and below but 649 was pushing it.

Beyond that, just Sonic Lost World comes to mind. Perhaps not as blockbusting as most, but it'll certainly shift a million or two if previous games are any indication. Anything else I can think of is either niche or not essential.

October isn't too busy; just Beyond: Two Souls, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and Batman: Arkham Origins.

November will be a bit busier, since the PS4 launches that then, and I will probably be getting one on launch day. I'll be picking up Battlefield 4, Knack, and Watch Dogs for sure. Maybe Assassin's Creed IV and Killzone: Shadow Fall, but it depends.

The week after will be The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Tearaway, and definitely Super Mario 3D World if I have a Wii U by then.

Not much in December, but I might check out South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Haha, I forgot about that completely for some reason.

Bravery Default gets release in December in Australia too. Not a blockbuster perhaps, but a must have for my 3DS.

Nice, Bravely Default will make a wonderful holiday season. I really want the new Sonic and Mario games after that direct, but I probably won't get them until after Christmas.
