I wish I could force myself to be interested in the Donkey Kong Country games. Even when the original SNES games came out I never did more than just rent them. I was brought up to believe that Donkey Kong was evil though, so it's hard to deprogram that.

I'm going to wait for price drops on MK8 and DKC:TF. I'm sure both will be fun games, but I'm not willing to pay more than $30 for them.

I may get Bayonetta 2, but that depends on if I ever finish the original.

I loved the three DK SNES games. Okay 2 SNES games. I always thought, when I was a kid playing the Game & Watch versions, that Donkey Kong was not evil, just misunderstood.  But then, I am a liberal pansy.

What is the Witch game you speak of Robio? Is that a sequel to Ni No Kuni?

As for Donkey Kong....I still wish Retro would have, if they INSIST on making more DK games, had the balls to do something different this time and did a sequel to Donkey Kong 64 instead of another DKC game. A new Mario/Banjo inspired DK full 3d world platformer on Wii U would have been a great new challenge for them (and been more of a showcase for the Wii U).

My most wanted games this year are as follows. Mind you, this is just what I can think of as of now:

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Cunt
  • Metal Gear Solid 5
  • The Evil Within
  • Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
  • Thief
  • Watch Dogs
  • Dragon Age 3
  • Destiny
  • Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
  • Lightning Returns
  • Fable Anniversary

I'm sorry but this year looks fucking badass!!! I am amped up!!!

I have no idea when or if the PS4 will become appealing enough to me in price and content this year. So I'll mostly be picking up a few older 360 games and the few U exclusives. I still have a backlog it would take a year to clear.

Why? It's been annouced, so it could come out this year.

Who needs Uncharted 4 when there's already Uncharted: Golden Showers or whatever that Vita game was called?

Vader said it sucked, and it wasn't made by Naughty Dog, so it doesn't count as a real Uncharted game.

On PS3 I'm interested in getting Final Fantasy X/X-2, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix (after I play 1.5). PS4 has Rayman Legends (going with this over PS3 and PC), InFamous: Second Son, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (and Ground Zeroes, I guess), Child of Light (looks very interesting), Dragon Age: Inquisition, Thief, Watch Dogs, Driveclub and several others I'll have to look into later. And on PC there's Pillars of Eternity. Maybe I'll even borrow an Xbox 360 to play Fable Anniversary. Dragon Age: Inquisition and InFamous: Second Son are the biggest for me.

My backlog should preclude me from this, but since we're hoping and dreaming, in projected order of release:

  • Final Fantasy XIII-3 (aka Lightning Returns)
  • Tales of Symphonia HD Collection
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Collection
  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
  • A PS4

OK, too many RPGs too close together now that I look at that list.

It's decent.

I've gone cold on Stick of Truth for some reason.

What is Pillars of Eternity and why are you hot for it?

Probably because South Park hasn't been funny since the game was announced, which I believe was 1999.
