I won't be paying $30 for it, but if LEGO Marvel Avengers is as good as Marvel Superheroes was, it'll be an eventual purchase.

Final Fantasy Explorers for 3DS comes out on Tuesday, and looks pretty cool.  I'll be grabbing that one for sure.

As far as Tomb Raider goes, I think Caine was talking about the less than stellar sales for the game on the Xbone.

I myself will get Lego Avengers and maybe The Witness.

Rise sold over 1 million, that's nothing to scoff at IMO. PC sales are gonna be good too, I guarantee.

Anyways, The Witness! Excited to pick this thing apart.

Once it finally hits the PS4 the sales will more than justify another sequel.

Exactly.  I meant it due to Square's previous expectations for the first vs sales and how Rise has sold since.  Maybe they will get enough to make up the difference, but TR2013 did far better and they were public about how they expected more.

Yeah, I get that.  Really poor decision to make it Xbox One exclusive and the release date chosen in my opinion.

Me as well. I was an early adopter of DiRT Rally and I'll like to see some reviews of Sťbastian Loeb Rally Evo which compare it to DiRT Rally.

It looks fascinating, but I can't tell if there is any form of story to keep me invested. The three reviews I read speak vaguely of the island's mysteries, but they never explain if that refers to finding new locations and more puzzles, or if means piecing a storyline together.

I don't know if 50 hours of walking from one puzzle to another without any context would keep me interested.

Almost missed this thread. I'm buying The Witness. I've been hyped for this game since before the PS4 launched.

There's context and there's story. You've got an entire island to explore and its mysteries to unravel, and the game has an actual end you can reach. The reason people are vague about it is because Jonathan Blow has asked them to be. Entire game mechanics are being hidden from us at this point, because they want us to discover them on our own. All we know is that they are awesome.

Kind of sad about Heroes Reborn, I guess they didn't think they were going to be cancelled lol.

I have the PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider prepurchased.  I also bought the PS4 re-release of Dark Cloud 2 on sale yesterday, which technically makes it this week as well.

I do find it odd (if I am reading Steam right) that Tomb Raider isn't being released until Thursday.  Did I miss a move on release date timing?
