Games I’m Most Looking Forward to in 2018
2018 looks to be already shaping up to be a great year for video games. There’s so many games I am looking forward to (meanwhile my wallet is crying). I honestly shouldn’t even be thinking about new games since I just picked up a metric shit ton in the Steam winter sale. I have a serious problem. My mental excuse for buying them is that I can play them on stream and post Let’s Plays on my YouTube channel.
1. World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth
While we don’t have an ETA for this expansion, it’s assumed it will come out SOMETIME in 2018. I seriously hope it does. I’m looking forward to some Nightborne action. I’ve always been disappointed that Night Elves were an Alliance race, because I am Horde For Life. This will be a nice second to playing an actual Night Elf.
2. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet
The gameplay on this game looks really fun (I’m glad it’s not first-person). The graphics look amazing and I’m excited it looks like there are some female playable characters (I don’t like playing dudes for some reason).
3. Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match
I love Girls und Panzer. I’m really excited about this game.
4. Kingdom Hearts III
I am an OG Kingdom Hearts fangirl! We have been waiting for this game for literally years. KH is a really special game. Playing it after leaving it alone for even years at a time feels a lot like coming home. For a lot of us it was the first “real” video game we played. The feels are real!
5. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
Full disclosure here, I have never played any previous games in this series. What makes this one special, you ask? Well it has Ruby and Weiss from RWBY! That alone makes it comelling to me since I’ve been a big RWBY fan for a while. If I like this one, I might go back and pick up a couple older ones to play. Who knows.
6. Soulcalibur VI
I’ve been playing these games for a while too. I remember playing it in the arcade in the mall when I was just a youngin. I sort of fell off the bandwagon and haven’t played the last couple games, but I’d like to get back into it.
7. Them’s Fightin’ Herds
This was originally conceived as a My Little Pony fighting game. Strange right? However, it’s seemed to work since it’s evolved into something much cooler. I donated to the crowdfunding campaign so I can’t wait to see what the devs of this game come up with.
8. Tomb Raider 2018
No title or trailer has officially been released yet, but there is a new Tomb Raider expected to be released in 2018. If they’re smart, they’ll market it with the movie. I love Tomb Raider but I havem’t played one in a very long time even though I have a bunch of them in my Steam library. I need to get those played before I pick up this one.
9. Detroit: Become Human
This is the type of game I would typically play. I’m not generally a huge fan of darker, gritty games. Hoever this one looks somewhat interesting to me and I’m going to at least try it.
Also not a game I’d usually play, but it has an interesting premise and it looks absolutely GORGEOUS. Also, anyone else thing that the villains are a metaphor for humans destroying the forest? Juuuust a thought.
What games are you looking forward to in 2018?
