Hit Or Miss Nintendo Switch PC Playstation 4 Upcoming Games Xbox One 11

Hit or Miss – August

Spread the Word!

I know I didn’t do one of these last months. That would be because there were like 2 games I wanted in July and there was no point in writing one of these. Now that that’s out of the way let’s get to this month’s edition of Hit or Miss!

Risk of Rain 2

Risk of Rain 2 is officially out of early access. I was curious about this game, but after watching some gameplay and seeing how the progression worked I decided that it wasn’t for me. Even though it’s really cheap I can’t see myself paying for another Roguelike game.

Verdict – Miss!

Nexomon: Extinction

Nexomon: Extinction is a brand new Nexomon game and I’m actually very excited about it. I always thought that Nexomon was underrated and deserved some more attention. All of the attention went to Temtem and that’s not even a very good game. I’m grabbing Nexomon: Extinction as soon as drops. It’s really cheap too. The only question is should I get it on PC or Switch.

Verdict – Hit!

Mortal Shell

After Hellpoint, I need to play a good Soulsborne game and Mortal Shell looks like that game. And it’s cheaper than Hellpoint! I love the unique take on classes in this game and it’s only 3 days away!

Verdict – Hit!

Horizon Zero Dawn (PC)

So Sony has finally decided to try and make some of that PC money that Xbox has been making. I’m sure they wish Horizon Zero Dawn would have launched better since it currently has a mixed rating on Steam. That being said, I have no interest in buying the game simply because it’s $50 and that’s way too high for a game that released in 2017. That and… the game isn’t as good as Playstation gamers claim it is…

Verdict – Miss!

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

This game has been selling like crazy because it’s popular on Twitch. I think it looks like absolute shit and I have zero interest in owning it. I embedded a horrible IGN review for you to watch.

Verdict – Miss!

Microsoft Flight Simulator

I’m sure all of you Flight Simulator fans are really happy since this game launches soon. For everyone else, there’s not much to see here…

Verdict – Miss!

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered

This was one of my most played Gamecube games ever and I plan on making it one of my most played Switch game when it releases.

Verdict – Hit!

Total War Saga: Troy

The only thing that this game had going for it is that it would be free for the first 24 hours on the Epic Game Store. That’s the only reason why I downloaded it and I’m honestly glad I did. This game is beautiful and plays like you would expect a Total War game to play and I love it and if you’re a fan of Total War you’ll love it too.

Verdict – Hit!

Pathfinder: Kingmaker (Consoles)

Pathfinder is an excellent game. It’s one of the best RPGs of the last decade in my opinion. That being said, I can’t see myself playing a CRPG on console.

Verdict – Miss!

Control Ultimate Edition

I’m finally going to buy Control. It’s no longer stuck on the Epic Game Store and it’s launching on Steam for $40 with all the DLC included! I’ve always been a big fan of Remedy so I can’t wait to play this one, guys. I know a lot of people are “mad” because this game isn’t going to be free on next-gen and guess what? No developer owes you a free upgrade.

Verdict – Hit!

Wastleland 3

I need a good post-apocalyptic fix and Wasteland 3 will fill that void nicely for me. Wasteland is actually the game that started this sub-genre in the late 80s and I’m excited at the opportunity to revisit this series. This is probably my most anticipated game of this month.

And that wraps up this month’s edition of Hit or Miss! What games are you adding to your collection this month?

    I think I want to pick up FF Crystal Chronicles on the Switch. I kept getting stuff for the PS4, but I’m on my Switch way more often.

      Crystal Chronicles is cheap too so I’ll most likely pick it up too.

    I wound up downloading the demo, and I had more fun making and naming the characters than actually playing lol. It’s really cute, but I guess I thought it was more traditional turn based combat.

      It’s a dungeon crawler and since I love that genre I typically love games that release in it. That being said Crystal Chronicles, for me anyway, is super buggy and laggy. And the Gamecube version was better.

    I didn’t realize I could like dungeon crawlers until Etrian Odyssey. I just downloaded two more demos of that series. I started watching a Let’s Play of it, and it’s super chill.

      Etrian Odyssey is a really good series. I’m hoping for some Switch games in that series soon. Dungeon crawlers are my jam. Diablo, Path of Exile, Grim Dawn, etc. I love them. Especially since my wife and kids are into them too.

    I really wish they would, too. It would be so much easier to play on the Switch. It’s s, uh, switch up from my typical JRPG fare, and I really have to plan out and problem solve stuff differently. I wound up buying Untold 2 The Fafnir Knight and I’ve been going through that. Trying to level up enough to defeat the first stratum boss. I feel like this one is easier than the first Untold, but still challenging. Have you ever played Shin Megami Tensei IV? I was watching an LP of it for a bit. It’s another dungeon crawler.

      Shin Megami Tensei IV is one of my favorite 3DS games. Tensei IV Apocalypse is also really good and added some quality of life features to the game. I highly recommend it if you like games like Persona. I can’t wait for part V to launch next year.

      Fafnir Knight is awesome too. I have just about all of the Etrian Odyssey games and I love them all. They can be hard depending on the difficulty you play on, but if I’m not mistaken you can change that at any time to cut the grind down if you want to. I really love that they added stories in these remakes on 3DS.

    I’m really liking it. I just had the itch to play or replay one of them. I’ve played Beyond the Myth and Millennium Girl. I downloaded the demo for Fafnir Knight and just picked up the whole game. I think I downloaded Nexus’ demo, too. I’m playing on Standard I believe. Yeah, I think Millennium Girl is the remake of one of the former ones. They’re really solid games. I think they’re relaxing lol. Like just the exploring and mapping.

      They are very relaxing games. Nexus is like a greatest hits collection of the Etrian Odyssey games. It’s the final game in the series (so far) and lets you choose from every character class in the series. It’s really, really good in my opinion. Millennium Girl is a remake of the first Etrian Odyssey game. It’s actually more of a reimagining of the first game. I love it.

    Yeah I really liked MG. I think I found out it was a remake of the first game while googling conditional drops lol. I love making characters for those games AND I really love that they have diverse skin colors. I’m on the last floor of the second stratum for Fafnir Knight. I do all the missions and try to beat all of the FOEs eventually. I keep getting so many damn grimoire stones lol. I really feel like this one is much easier the MG, which I’m not too upset about. I just put it on Story Mode so as to not make it too difficult and I’m glad I went with that instead of the lower difficulty. I want a little bit of a challenge, and I have died at least twice lol.
