Given the usual tradition of piling all of the big releases into November, you might think there wasn't anything to look forward to in December.  In spite of that, we have a stealthy release of Telltale's GoT series, a new release on PS+ and a delayed release of another highly promoted next-gen racer.  Is there anything you fancy getting this week or are you going to prove the publishers' predictions of reduced sales?

I will most likely pick up Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker eventually, but It's not a day one purchase.

I'm certainly holding the door open for Game of Thrones on PS4, barring poor reviews.

nada.. 

Was interested in The Crew, but the lack of reviews and Ubisoft trend of releasing buggy ass shit is keeping my money in my pocket

I don't know why, but I'm crazy excited about Captain Toad.  I'm just bummed I have to wait until Friday.

I will get The Crew when I can get it for free as part of the Ubisoft "Sorry about that, Chief" AssCreed deal.  I had a lot of fun with the beta.  Very rough around the edges but there's some cool stuff in there.

I think Secret Ponchos is a PS+ freebie, so that, too.

Nothing this week. I want Game of Thrones, but I still need to finish up Walking Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among Us before tackling any more Telltale Games.

I'm in the same boat.  Barely touched TWD and haven't even started TWAU.

I find buying The Crew a brave thing.  I'm rooting for it for sure, but I feel Ubisoft are having a bad fall in someways and the review embargo is less than encouraging.  I realize that isn't always the case though.

Yeah, we'll see.  Ubisoft is definitely not doing well this year, but I've played several of the closed and open beta periods and nothing has stuck out as being problematic.  Secondly, I got it with the $15 back from the Microsoft Store so for $45 I'm willing to take the chance. 

Even if it has server issues or whatever for a few days, that sucks but it's not a huge deal to me since this isn't a single player game where I'm really just waiting to dig in and complete it or anything, it will be a long-term game I play on and off for months.

It looks like Telltale has another good series going with Game of Thrones - GT, Gamespot, and IGN all gave very positive reviews of episode 1.

I bought Dragon Age: Inquisition for way too little (yay for making Origin think that I'm in Mexico instead of the US by using a proxy, thus saving $25 on the 'digital collectors edition'), so I'm off playing that. I'd wish they'd patch it though - the 'cinema scenes' look so jumpy and low FPS.

I wouldn't use that trick if I were you. EA is in their full right (morally and legally) to ban you from Origin and your entire game collection there for doing something like that. You'd get banned from Steam for doing the same thing on that store.

In the short term, that is fixable with a quick command line switch.  The only known side effects are that you have to add the command line *after* you've finished creating your character, and you'll have to remove it before playing any multiplayer.

I hadn't heard of Fantasy Hero but it looks pretty cool, will probably get that.

Game of Thrones - I'll probably wait for iOS I think.

Unfortunately it doesn't completely fix the issue. It's still bad enough that I've given up playing till the patch come out.  icon_frown

The only good news about that is it's given me time to play other games.

Put a few hours in to Game of Thrones. It's very classy. Great writing, very good characters, and I like the look of it which has a bit of a water color style going on. I was impressed with what Telltale did with Borderlands, keeping the game fresh with a lot of locations, but this one trumps that.

I also have to say that I actually got nervous when

Spoiler for Hiden:
Cersei was questioning me.

They really got the flavor of GOT just right in this one.

Picked up The Crew. I've got a platinum EB Games membership, so I've got 7 days to return it (and apply it to my son's XB1) if I don't like it.

That might not be enough time if there are fundamental issues with the online connectivity.

GoT is bought and episode 1 is already beat. Great start to the series so far.
