3DS Hit Or Miss Nintendo Switch PC Playstation 4 Upcoming Games Xbox One 12

Hit or Miss – March

Spread the Word!

It’s a new month and you know what means? It’s time for another one of my hit or miss post! 

Agony – (PC/PS4/Xbox One)

I love horror games and Agony looks like it should be pretty good. It takes place in hell and it looks creepy as fuck. There’s a lot to for me to be excited for here, but it’s releasing pretty close to Far Cry 5 and I want that game. I might have enough for both, but I’m not sure yet. If I had to choose one it would be the game that’ll give me more play time. This is on my list of games to buy or sure and I can’t say it’s a miss because I am interested in it. I hope that it’s on the cheap side too.

Verdict – Hit!

Far Cry 5 – (PC/PS4/Xbox One)

I’m not a huge Far Cry fan, but I like what I’ve seen on this one so far. I also really like that the entire game can be played cooperatively and not just certain parts like the last one. I like the location that it’s in, graphics, and the dog and I’m not even a dog person. Far Cry 5 is one of my most anticipated games releasing in March.

Kirby Star Allies – (Switch)

My kids really want this game and I promised them that I would buy it for them. Am I going to play it? Nope. I’m sure they’ll get my money’s worth out of it though.

Verdict – Miss! (Hit for my kids)

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (PC) 

 

I own the first game but never bothered to play it. The second game looks interesting and it’s only $30. I can easily buy two copies of this and play it with my wife, but I don’t know if she’s even interested in it yet. If she says yes then I’ll buy it.

Verdict – Undecided

Devil May Cry HD Collection – (PC/PS4/Xbox One)

I’m not a Devil May Cry fan at all and this game has already been re-released before. I’m not interested…

Verdict – Miss!

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue: Remastered – (PC/PS4/Xbox One)

I already own the best Assassin’s Creed game ever made and I have zero interest in another remaster.

Verdict – Miss!

A Way Out – (PC/PS4/Xbox One)

A Way Out can only be played in split screen and I hate sharing my screen with someone. That’s an automatic miss for me.

Verdict – Miss! 

Detective Pikachu (3DS)

 

Who asked for this game? I usually love Pokemon spinoffs, but I’m going to avoid this shit like the plague. This game looks boring and Pikachu isn’t even in my top 20 Pokemon. Just release a real Pokemon game, please.

Verdict – Miss!

Sea of Thieves (Xbox One/PC)

It’s a miracle! The Xbox One is getting a new exclusive! I’m just kidding, but you have to admit that a new IP releasing on Xbox is fucking rare. Sea of Thieves is… not for me and I have no plans on ever owning it. It looks boring and thankfully I have other options.

Verdict – Miss! 

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom (PC/PS4)

I never played the first Ni no Kuni game. I plan on playing this one. I haven’t decided if I’m buying it over Far Cry 5, but it’s right up there with it.

Verdict – Hit! 

Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition (PC)

This game is finally releasing on PC. I played the demo a little while ago and I’m sold. I want this game. It’s beautiful, has okay gameplay, and a likable cast of characters. It’s also the first Final Fantasy game I’m going to play since 13-3. I don’t count Final Fantasy XIV because it’s an MMO, but you want to count that then go ahead. I plan on buying this game on day one.

Verdict – Hit! 

Valkyria Chronicles 4 (PS4) 

I don’t own a PS4 so I’m obviously not buying this game :). If I did I would probably buy it if there was nothing else releasing around it. The first game sold really well on Steam and I have feeling that we won’t be waiting too long to play this one on PC too. I was right about Nioh and I feel the same way about this game.

Verdict – Miss!

Atelier Lydie & Suulle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings (PC/Switch/PS4)

 

I’ve been wanting to get into this series for years, but these games always release next to something I really want and this year is no different. Hopefully, I’ll be able to buy it during the Steam summer sale this year.

Verdict – Wait For Sale! 

And that wraps up this edition of Hit or Miss! What games are you looking forward to this month?

    I’ve been following Agony since it was announced and I love what I’ve seen, but the gameplay ideas don’t sound like my kinda of horror. I want to watch someone else stream it instead. I’m curious to see how you find FFXV. It’s tied with VIII as my series favorite. I loved Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons but I don’t think I’ll be grabbing A Way Out. No no Kuni 2 looks great but I’ve never played the original and I think I want to do that first. I remember the original dropping in price pretty quickly so I’ll grab the sequel when it hits the $20 mark, unless reviews point out things I don’t think I’ll enjoy. I’m still a little burnt out on open-worlds so I’ll pass on FC5 as well. I’m sure it’ll be rad but I just can’t do an open world again right now.

      Agony… is interesting. I don’t know if I’m going to like it, but I’m willing to give it a chance if it’s the right price. The demo I played of FFXV was good and convinced me to buy the game so that’s a good thing :). I want to revisit FFXIII because when I played it I was against JRPGs in every way. I’ve changed a lot since then and I might enjoy it more now . I’m with you on A Way Out and A Tale of Two Sons. I enjoyed one and don’t plan on buying the other. I’m also with you on Ni no Kuni 2. I never played the first one, but I am interested in the second one. It’ll most likely be a summer sale game for me because I know I’m buying Far Cry 5. I never get tired of open world games. I have about 70 hours Dynasty Warriors 9 and I plan on moving on to Final Fantasy XV and then Far Cry 5. Three open world games in a row :). I’m going to burnt the fuck out when I’m done with all three of those.

        I really liked FF XIII when I played it last year.

    FFXV on PC has Gordon Freeman costumes apparently. I love how insane Square Enid seem to be getting with costumes in their games. I’m all for silly crossover stuff where it’s appropriate.

    I’m also VERY interested in Agony. There’s a lot of potential for some really unsettling creatures in it. I’ve avoided most marketing material for the sake of spoilers, but once the reviews start coming in I’ll pick it up.

    Wait, A Way Out is split screen only? Damn, that sucks.

    I’m really looking forward to Sea of Thieves, been playing it a lot during the closed betas and I really enjoy it. I get that it won’t be for everyone, but I for one, have loved it so far.

      A Way Out can only be played in co op. Unless something has changed and they announced a proper single player.

      I hope you enjoy Sea of Thieves :).

    I just bought FFs XIV and XV a month of so ago. I haven’t touched them yet, but I’m glad to see that XV (or at least a DLC of it) is a hit for you. Kirby looks cute and like something your kids would enjoy. Do you think they’d like the Pikachu Detective game?

      The FFXV that I have listed is the full game with all DLCs for PC. It’s finally releasing on PC so us PC gamers can have a chance to play it too. And mod it :).

      My kids are going to love Kirby. Detective Pikachu… not so much since none of their favorite Pokemon are Pikachu :).

        My favorite pokemon is definitely Snorlax with Jigglypuff a close second. The one that sleeps all the time and the one that puts people to sleep haha. I’ve never really played it, but me and my old college roommate used to watch the show back in school. I want one of those gigantic Snorlaxes that can’t fit in most Japanese apartments.

          My favorite Pokemon is Ivysaur, Decidueye, and Gengar. I have a thing for ghost type Pokemon and I’ve loved Ivysaur ever since I got one in Pokemon Red :).

            I wish I knew more about Pokemon so I could have an opinion lol. I of course can use the google to find out more. Pokemon is one of the major fandoms I’ve never really gotten into. I think I’d disappear into it if I did. It seems like a whole lot of fun.

    I love Pokemon. When it drops on the Switch I’m kissing my social life goodbye lol. Some Pokemon, like Parasect, are freaking creepy. Pokemon actually has some pretty dark lore if you’re like me and read all of the Pokedex entries :).
