so, I was sitting down planning my fall purchases and remembered I made a thread like this the last couple of years, so why not do it again?  It's about time for the fall game buying season to kick off, what are you looking to buy?

here's my list:

PC
Batman: Arkham Origins
Watch_Dogs
AssCreed 4
CoD Ghosts
Battlefield 4
Saints Row 4
Splinter Cell Blacklist
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
X Rebirth

360
Grand Theft Auto 5
Madden 25

Wii U
The Wonderful 101
Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD
Super Mario World 3D

Xbox One
Ryse
Dead Rising 3
Forza 5
Just Dance 2014

Vita
Killzone Mercenary
Tearaway

granted, those are ones I plan on buying, but with reviews and impressions and lack of time I know I won't end up with all 20, and some will be rented from Gamefly as well, like the Vita games and most of the Wii U ones.  I also expect the forum effect to result in me buying at least one game not on that list biggrin

on the plus side since most of the games I get are PC I'll also be able to get good deals on them.  For example, I've already got Blacklist, The Bureau, Arkham Origins and Saints Row 4 all lined up and with credits, freebies and discounts it comes out to $114.98 for all 4 games.

Uh.... Nothing?

I might consider batman if I hear it's more like AA and less like AC.... I am not getting AC 4 until it hits the bargain bin or until a friend of mine lends it to me.

My backlog is huge anyway...

Infamous: Second Son

thankfully that's not a fall title; last I heard it isn't due until February which should give me plenty of time to clear out the fall games and more time to decide if I want to buy a PS4 for the games release or wait a bit longer.

Knack didn't play well, IMO. It was ... 2006-ish? walled in, no choices, smash everything (which became tedious in the 6 minute demo). Two button combat (jump, smash). When larger you could pick up and throw things. It looks to have some charm, and it might just be the demo as it basically walked you forwards with no exploring whatsoever, and when you go invisible you shrink, and if you go back the artifacts don't rejoin you and there are a lot of "go through this vent" tactics that constantly reset your size.

Donkey Kong was way more fun. Hell, I found Sonic Lost World to feel better, even though it was Sega's day-late,dollar-short answer to Mario Galaxy.

If I had a WiiU, there would be a bunch of titles that would be under the tree.

As it stands, I'm holding off on all current-gen console purchases. I know I'm going next gen, so there really isn't any point in buying something for this gen. I'm wait-and-see on GTAV (though I do have a preorder on it).

Forza 5, DR3 preordered. Figuring out trade values right now to dump a bunch of stuff to afford Ryse.
Got my second controller+Play-and-charge, as well as a second Play-and-charge kit set.

Wouldn't mind Watch Dogs, but once again - wait-and-see.

My PS4 preorder has nothing attached yet. Knack is a no-go for me, Infamous:Second Son isn't launch day.



Here are the next-gen launch lists in case you were wondering (and since my buying is going there, this is the list I'm looking at):

PS4

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag  Ubisoft
Battlefield 4  DICE
Call of Duty: Ghosts  Infinity Ward
DC Universe Online  Sony Online Entertainment
DriveClub  Evolution Studios
FIFA 14  EA Sports
Just Dance 2014  Ubisoft
Killzone Shadow Fall  Guerilla Games
Knack  SCE Japan Studio
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes  TT Games
Madden NFL 25  EA Sports
NBA 2K14  Visual Concepts
NBA Live 14  EA Sports
Skylanders: Swap Force  Vicarious Visions
Tiny Brains Spearhead GamesWiki
Warframe  Digital Extremes
Watch Dogs  Ubisoft Montreal

XBOne

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag  Ubisoft
Battlefield 4  DICE
Call of Duty: Ghosts  Infinity Ward
Dead Rising 3  Capcom
FIFA 14  EA Sports
Forza Motorsport 5  Turn 10
Just Dance 2014  Ubisoft
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes  TT Games
LocoCycle  Twisted Pixel
Madden NFL 25  EA Sports
NBA 2K14  Visual Concepts
NBA Live 14  EA Sports
Killer Instinct  Double Helix
Ryse: Son of Rome Crytek
Skylanders: Swap Force  Vicarious Visions
Watch Dogs  Ubisoft Montreal

Lot of duplication there - fortunately there is no next-gen NHL to get my money.

I'll be picking up the new dishonored dlc soon. Otherwise, I have nothing planned until Thief comes out.

Wwll, I've been unemployed for the last 2.5 months, so that certainly cuts into my planned expenditures. 

I'd love to get Batman, Watch Dogs, and GTA 5.  If I can swing GTA during the MP love window, I might, but the others, I'm not concerned with MP, so there's no reason not to wait until they become more deeply discounted on Steam.

I personally cant see myself investing in my XBox360. All my future purchases will have to wait for X1. Any must haves will have to PC or PS3

Lots of stuff. Although I cringe every time I pre-order something for PS3 or 360 because I want to be done with backlog on those machines when the new consoles come out. That would include Beyond: Two Souls, Ratchet and Clank, Kingdom Hearts 1.5, etc. I expect I will get Splinter Cell for PC as well as Batman (assuming it's coming there).
