Drought Incoming: Whatcha Gonna Play?
I just looked at the release schedule for the next few months, and it's pretty barren.
In fact, with the exception of Watch Dogs at the end of May, I don't really see any big heavy hitters until September, when the fall/holiday titles start to flow. Destiny is set for September 9 and it's all downhill from there.
Yeah, there's The Evil Within in late August and a few other promising titles. But for the most part, we're definitely looking at a drought for the next four or five months, so it's definitely time to play catch-up. I'll certainly take advantage, as there are several big games I've never managed to finish. I'll definitely want to sink my teeth into inFamous: Second Son again, and I want to get back to Grand Theft Auto V, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and of course, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. Still not sure I'll make it all the way through the latter, but it's just so much fun to play! :)
What are you planning to play during this stretch? Or is there a game during the drought that you're really looking forward to? Did I hear that Wolfenstein: The New Order got pushed up? That has some promise, right? If there are any others, feel free to let me know. I'm gonna try to catch up on the digital side, too; I've always wanted to give Fez a try, for instance.
