A new month into the busy season and a new assortment of games.  Are you buying or waiting until the next wave of big titles hit later this month?  Personally, I still have last month's big titles to get through, so it's going to be a while before I let anything shy of a Steam Fall sale go near my wallet.  Oh, they have a new Rock Band out this week?  Nuts

Uncharted is an eventual must-buy, as I've never played any of the Uncharted games. However, it will have to wait until I get some of my backlog under control.

I was going to buy Rock Band 4 Day One, but I'm wavering now. I think I may wait just a bit to see how the reviews shake out.

I want to buy Rock Band 4, but like with RB3, Europe seems to be treated like some disease-ridden bum. There's no way to buy the game yet, either digitally (it doesn't even show up on the PS Store) or physically. Heck, I can't even find a clear indication of release date. Some places say the 6th, while others say the 16th. Who knows if it'll even be possible to buy instruments around here? It was next to impossible with RB3.

Rock Band 4 was preordered an epic time ago.  I was looking forward to getting the band back together with my family this weekend, but wife and daughter are making a trip to the in-laws, so I'll be rocking solo.

Uncharted is one of those remasters that I know I don't need, but will probably get anyway, then play for a couple of hours and never touch again.

Chibi-Robo was one of my favorite Gamecube games, so I'll keep an eye on this new one, but it seems to be nothing like the original, and so far doesn't seem like anything special.

If you haven't played these great games yet, picking up the Uncharted Collection is an integral part of getting your backlog under control.  You're also saving a ton of money compared to people who bought the three games for $60 a piece, so in a way, it would actually be irresponsible not to buy the set and play it immediately.

Immediately.

I'll get Uncharted eventually, but I'm not in any hurry.  Tried two of the PS3 and the Vita game ages ago, and came away mostly 'meh' with all of them.  Would be good to give it another look, but I'm in no hurry.

The Vita game is very meh.  The aiming is surprisingly sharp thanks to the fine tuning allowed by the motion controls, but the story plays out like unguided fan fiction.

But don't forget to log into Diablo 3 on your console and check your mailbox. I got a gift for you yesterday and there may be more from the last 30 days I've forgotten about.

I'm curious to see reception for Transformers: Devastation as well as Chibi Robo: Zip Lash, but I'll be taking a wait-and-see approach.

I'm still playing MGSV, so I'm assuming I'll try out Metal Gear Solid Online since that's a free download.

I've pretty much decided against Rock Band 4. I'd have to get it on Xbox One for DLC and instrument compatibility, so that's a $20 premium on the price right off the bat. The setlist is pretty mediocre, and most reviews - while positive - are saying it doesn't really improve much upon the previous entries and in some cases takes a step back.

Instead I think I'll wait and see how Guitar Hero Live shapes up - at least they are doing something a little different with the controller, and their set list looks better to me. It's also solo-oriented, which is how I was planning on playing Rock Band mostly anyway. Might just be a better fit all around.

I just got Transformers in today, excited to get home and check that out. The fact that its getting sent out on release day from Activision is giving me flashbacks to last week and Tony Hawk 5, but hopefully it isn't the same issue two weeks in a row.

Already spent my time with Disgaea 5, my review is up on the site but suffice to say, that is just more and more and more of the same. Not for me at all - if I was picking up a new SRPG or recommending one to someone right now, it'd be Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker. That game is still freaking incredible.

Rock Band 4 looks awesome and I have a sizable backlog on the 360, but the cost of a Band-in-a-Box and the XB1 shortages make me think that holding off until the holidays is a better idea.

Uncharted is going on my Black Friday list. Games like these usually drop to $30 or so for Black Friday deals, and that'll be post-Fallout, post-Tomb Raider, post-everything, so I'll actually have time to play through all three games. I know I need to at some point, but I'm honestly way more interested in Tomb Raider.

Nothing this week. I'll get Uncharted somewhere down the line and do a replay before the new game comes out.

Day One - Super Meat Boy (PS+)
Eventually - Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, Rock Band 4, Transformers Devastation, maybe Chibi-Robo

I'm glad this is a quiet week for me, as the next two weeks are going to be absolutely crazy - Dragon Quest Heroes, Legend of Legacy, Wasteland 2 GOTY, Minecraft Story Mode, Yoshi's Woolly World, Guitar Hero Live, Tales of Zestiria, and Sword Coast Legends (and Divinity : Original Sin Enhanced a week after that).

BTW Van Helsing final cut comes out on Tuesday, which you get for free if you own all three games. I do but haven't played any of them, so seems like something to tackle in the upcoming months.

EDIT: scratch that, it was just delayed into November.

Which is why I bought it tonight via Amazon and should get it Friday, just in time for the weekend. Now to go decide how hard I want to pound on Mad Max to try and wrap that story up.
