Let's face it, this year is not going to be as good as last year. Sure there are some good things coming out (some even this month!) but mostly let's just know that last year is not going to be beaten anytime soon and just be glad that fact gives us more time to catch up.

Here is a probably incomplete list of the games this month
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (PS4, PC) – January 16
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory (PS4, Vita) – January 19
Kirby Battle (3DS) – January 19
Ni no Kuni: Revenant Kingdom (PC, PS4) – January 19
Lost Sphear (Switch, PS4, PC) – January 23
The Inpatient (PSVR) - January 23
The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia (PS4) – January 25
Dragon Ball FighterZ (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – January 26
Monster Hunter: World (PS4, Xbox One) – January 26
DISSIDIA Final Fantasy NT (PS4) – January 30

Have a year of good gaming all and please try not to be to dickish to each other tia

If they didn't make it for the Wii U (ie a system that seems designed for a pokemon snap game), they aren't making it

Pokemon Go is the closest you're ever going to get.

One of these games lets me explode a bunch of giant powder keg barrels with an even more giant sword in order to slay a massively giant fire breathing t-rex

Its a Dragon Ball game made by arcsys (makers of Guilty Gear, Blazblue and Persona Arena to name a few) using the xrd engine (probably the best cel shading engine ever made) I don't care about Dragon Ball but it looks loving nuts

Carly shook her glass, willing the ice to melt. "You still haven't told me what the mission is."

She leaned forward. "We are going to assassinate the bad men of Hollywood."

Some games I've been playing recently:

Child of Light - It's charming, cute and doesn't last too long / A beautiful game that can be bought for a song. Some people find the verse offputting / But they're as relevant as Omar Gooding.
Tales of Berseria - Strength of the main cast really elevates this beyond the sum of its parts. I don't even find the kid too annoying, a rarity in RPGs.

Magilou is my favorite character in the game and I'm sad she keeps leaving the party!

Invisible werewolf (entirely visible, not actually a wolf)

Finally dropped Xenoblade 2 reaching Chapter 4. I enjoy the gameplay but god if everything surrounding it isn’t 200% tropey anime garbage of the worst kind. It finally lost me on the party discussion about whether or not Tits McGee should wear a maid costume and your dialogue choices are two different flavors of ”Yes”

she'll stop doing that by the time you have a full party, she isn't one of those characters that's constantly coming and going, it's just the early game

it's not like it's even that different from what tales has always been, it's just now you don't have a lloyd or an asbel. i'm ok with having a jude or a luke though, or a graces f arc asbel who's just a weird young dad

in the inevitable tales of zestiria remake, alisha and rose will be the main characters and sorey and mikleo will just be their gay friends

I am having a hard time discerning whether there's anything in the Tales franchise other than a collection of generic fantasy tropes - at first glance 5 episodes in.
