I'm interested in giving Gravity Rush Remastered a try.  I've had my PS4 for a few months and it will be the first game I buy for it that didn't come with the system...

Also, Xcom2.

I'll get XCOM2 eventually, but I'm in no rush. I've got plenty of other games to keep me busy still, and a few rounds of patches can only do that game good.

Gravity Rush Remastered is en route.

I may get Not a Hero.

One of these days I'll finish the original XCom (and the original reboot to boot).

I'm sure there's something else in there

American Truck Simulator. I'm lifting my self-imposed ban on new game purchases for this one, just because I've always felt oddly compelled to be a virtual truck driver. I've messed around with almost every truck driving game that's ever hit the market, and loved ETS2.

Don't really care about XCOM - I never got into that franchise like other people did. May pick it up one of these days on a Steam sale.

Might get Gravity Rush Remastered and I'm also curious about Fortified due to it's retro sci-fi setting.

XCOM 2 for sure, after seeing the Mods panel at PAX South I'm pretty sold.

Been playing Gravity Rush Remastered for a while, it's really solid. Having never played it on the Vita, I really like the concept, though the camera can get wonky at times and I'm not a huge fan of collectibles being your upgrade fuel. It's still fun enough to keep me interested though, and I'm definitely interested in the sequel now.

I'll have a review of Nitroplus Blasterz live tomorrow-ish. Can't say more, though I have a feeling it'll be tonally similar to my Dengeki Bungko review.

Also, if anyone hasn't played Crypt of the Necrodancer yet, you should pick it up on PS4 and Vita. One of my favorites of the new wave of indie roguelikes.

I was going to cancel my xcom purchase since there is so much coming out now and I haven't finished the first one, but I found out I couldn't, so I'm getting xcom smile

FF XIII - Lightning Returns popped up on my Steam recommendations today.  I realized that it's the only Final Fantasy game I've never at least tried.  I don't expect to love it, but I at least have to give it a shot.  

I also might get FF Tactics Advance, which released on Virtual Console this week.  I'm baffled (and more than a little irritated) that they figure out how release it to play on my WiiU gamepad, but not on my 3DS.   saywhat

American Truck Simulator for me. I'm strangely giddy about getting this - love ETS2 of course.

Also make sure you Follow the game on Steam before it comes out to get 2 exclusive truck paint jobs when you purchase.

I am also getting this, even though the game only offers two trucks at launch.  I kind of wish they had gone like they did with ETS2 and had the fake names, but they should be able to get more trucks licensed.  The map is smaller in raw comparison, but more detailed, ala ETS2: Scandinavia.  Looking forward to driving down the coast at sunset.

I just purchased it and am downloading, but it's only a 1GB download, so I don't know if that's the whole game or not... wait, it is the whole game! Playing now icon_lol

I've snagged it, but I'm a little disappointed that it has pretty serious judder issues in VR. Hoping that it gets sorted out when they hopefully get their engine up to DX11.

Crypt of the Necrodancer for me.

Edit: Also ended up getting Amazing Discoveries in outer space on a whim. Both have proven to be fantastic purchases.

Initial impressions for American Truck Simulator. I dunno if its the trucks themselves but having a hell of a time getting the trailer in the drop-off spots. Maybe I'm out of practice but it seems like the turning isn't as tight on the American trucks compared to the European ones. In ETS2 I can pull in to a store and within a few minutes I can line up everything and be on my way. in ATS it's taking me 10-15 minutes to get the trailer in the spot.

Started in Nevada and figured I'd work my way west from there but man the desert is pretty boring to drive through. So looking to get out of there ASAP. Will come back later to check out Reno and Las Vegas.

Otherwise it's mainly more of the same with new scenery - which is good.

Do wish they started with New England or eastern Canada. Seems a bit more scenic with all the tree's in NH/Main, mountains in Vermont, Boston for a major city, or even scenic PEI or Nova Scotia in Canada. But guess something to look forward to.
