I'm very curious about the Korra game.  Platinum seems like the perfect company to tackle that series.

I've already ordered Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth, so I've got that coming.

And Door Kickers goes to official release status on Monday October 20th. Still available as Early Access for the next few hours.

Debating whether to bite on Dreamfall Chapters now, or wait until it's finished.  I really want to play, but I'm afraid I'll forget major plot points if there is a significant gap between installments.  I really want to wait, but my love of that series may just win out.

Already ordered Beyond Earth. Zero time to play it though. Hopefully find time to give it a look over this weekend, that's about it.

Lots of tempting stuff this week, but nothing I'm burning to play right now, especially since I'm already knee-deep in games I really want to play and/or finish. I'm getting Dreamfall Chapters regardless, as a backer. Civilization: Beyond Earth is a given at some point, but I'm not sure if I'll get it right away.

Early impressions of the Korra game, before release, from various gaming podcasts was that the game was looking good, and up to platinum's gameplay standards.

But, I'll wait for reviews since I've never played a Platinum game.

For me:
Dreamfall Chapters
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth

Dreamfall so I can see what they've been doing all this time since I backed it. Then will just wait until the final episode is released before playing it again.

I'm really, really, really hoping that they got the netcode issues worked out for Beyond Earth. Even when my friends and I got together for a LAN party, we had nothing but trouble getting Civ 5 working.

Provided I finish up Shadow of Mordor, I'll probably be picking up Forza Horizon 2.

Day One - Fantasy Life, Pokemon Art Academy, Civilization : Beyond Earth
Someday - Dreamfall Chapters, Bayonetta 2
Maybe - The Legend of Korra

Fantasy Life is my second most wanted game of the year, right after Dragon Age.  It's going to be so nice to play a huge Level 5 epic like they used to make  drool

Tempted by Fantasia, but I need to read more and see if it's something my 4-year-old will enjoy.  Also really wish it came with Disney animated movie soundtrack songs.

Tempted by Civ: Beyond Earth, but I need to read impressions on how tedious the end-game is compared to other Civs


I'll probably be able to hold out for sales on both.  Plenty on my current gaming plate as it is.

I was going to do the same thing but it's probably healthier for the game (in a financial sense) if we pay up front as it'll help fund the rest of the episodes. So, I'll be buying it this week.

Not to sidetrack the thread but which gaming podcasts do you listen to?

Fantasia -  I really enjoyed the demo and I've loved all of Harmonix games so I went ahead and purchased the Deluxe Digital version with all the DLC. 
Door Busters - Got last night while it was still on sale.

I'll grab Civ BE one of these days.

I hadn't heard of Fantasy Life until this thread - sounds like something I'd really like so I'll probably grab that!

A lot of people are buying Civ BE here, but it's not looking like the blockbuster I expected it to be considering it could very well be though of as a sequel to Alpha Centauri. It's not even in the top 10 of sales on Steam when I looked recently.

It's number one on the list now slywink  There does seem to be less hype than I would have expected, but I'd be surprised if it isn't a big seller.

As for Legend of Korra, reviews are all over the place, but it got a 3 from Gamespot and a 4.2 from IGN.
