There are two more movies coming.  I am patient enough to wait to see what that ends up looking like before pulling the trigger.

I'm probably overLEGO'd, but given that it's really the only Force Awakens game we're getting, I'll be picking up LSW:TFA.

If the reviews for Technomancer are great, I'll get it this week.  If they're just decent, I'll pick it up on sale down the road, otherwise, I don't need it.

Heart and Slash is supposed to be good, so maybe that.  Also, I loved BoxBoy, so BoxBoxBoy seems likely.

I'm eyeing 7 Days to Die, too, but I don't remember why.

Likely not anything.  I have plenty of LEGO games in the backlog, have picked up seven games in the Steam sale, and a huge backlog of games.

I have Star Ocean preordered, will be keeping an eye on Technomancer as well.

EDIT:  After reading a couple import reviews on Star Ocean, I may put that $$ towards FF XV instead.  The reviews and impressions are...not kind.

So... available on Amazon but not compatible with my Match-3 crazy wife's Kindle Fire, why would that be?

Finished up Tiny Tina's Keep in BL2.  The last area before the big fight was a slog.  The only reason I kept through it was the extreme distaste I would have had if I had to re-do it all again later.

15 years ago this game would have slotted in perfectly as a $40 B tier title. Heck it's $40 on Steam. That looks like the right price.

However it seems there is a stigma, and a high cost with publishing on a major console platform. A $20 cost, not so sure, but it does seem silly.

I would have been more interested in jumping in early if it was $40 or even $50 off the bat, I mean Spiders is known for solid games wrapped in a janky design decisions.

I just have to wonder sometimes if publishers have really done the market research on pricing, launch dates etc. I want to say they have, but knowing all the marketing departments I've dealt with I am not too sure.

Yeah, it seems to fit perfectly in that $40 tier which is why I bought it for $38 on Steam.  I want to support these guys making their ambitious and slightly weird games at a lower budget.

I'm sure the publisher and marketing divisions are perfectly aware of all of those factors.  Release date for a product of this size probably has more to do with budget and time than anything.    They need to plan those things out like 6 months in advance for all the marketing and retailer agreements to line up.

My guess on the console release being full price is that first off it's a $15 difference between the post-launch PC price and the console price.  Secondly, they have a different publisher involved for the console release so that is another cut being taken off the top in addition to the console fees.  And of course then there is the stigma of being a lower priced retail game on consoles these days and they probably figure that releasing at a lower price like $50 doesn't get them any more initial sales and only saddles them with less income and then people will be more excited when/if it does drop in price.

Oh, as for me I'm getting The Technomancer.  It may be janky, but I want to support Spiders to keep them developing their weird shit.

And I have The Division DLC coming from my idiotic purchasing of the season pass.

Also interested to hear how BoxBoxBoy, God Eater and Inside turn out.
