ah okay - sounds exactly like the .hack games then. In the sense that there's like a million of them and I don't really understand. haha.

The screenshots I've seen look kind of cool though, regarding Fatal Bullets. I may keep an eye on it. Depending how the MP stuff is implemented, that may up my interest as well.

Chasm looks great - Dunno when it'll arrive.
Same with the new Super Meat Boy.
Shadow of the Colossus PS4 is coming in Feb. Of course I'll get it - I've bought every other release and still keep loving it.
A small part of FFVII is coming this year(?) - piece-meal fed to us - what a drag. Still gonna buy every part and all DLC.
Secret of Mana - looks & sounds good. I'm excite.
ThatGameCompany's Sky: Light Awaits, is coming to Apple devices in March with other systems later.

after watching some clips, I must say that Monster Hunter World looks pretty awesome. I don't think I'll really have time to play it right away, but I'll be keeping my eye on sales.

Also, I downloaded the beta for Dragon Ball Fighter Z over the weekend. I should start by saying that I am not a DBZ fan at all, but I had heard good things about this game. At any rate, I fired it up and you have to walk around this little hub world to get into a match. Oh, and I meant to say that - don't hate me - I've always found that artist's work (I don't know his name... the DBZ, DQ8, CT artist) really off-putting. It's just not to my taste. So I'm walking around this hub world and finally figure out how to get into a match, and it seems like I have to wait fora long time. So I'm just watching all these little chibi DBZ characters run around and it appears that I have to wait for like 50-60 other matches to finish before it's my turn? Meh. I just shut the game off and uninstalled before ever fighting. I just really don't think this game will be for me.

Did not know there was a new super meat boy in the works, awesome.

Lots of great games coming this year, Mega man 11 and God of war 4 are the 2 that I want the most, include bloodstained if it actually releases this year.

I am also pretty excited to finally play bayonetta 2, I did not own a wii u so I will definitely pick up the bundle when it comes out next month,

so far reviews of Monster Hunter: World seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

Is Bloodstained still supposed to be coming out in March? Seems unlikely without even a solid release date when March is just around the corner.

That was the last I heard, but I would be surprised if it made that timeline. Still possible I guess, but I haven't gotten an update in a while and I'd think they'd want to put out an announcement about if it were coming that soon.

It could possibly make it by the end of the year, though. That would be nice.

Yakuza 6 and Tunic are two games that I'm really quite excited about this year. Tunic I saw two years ago at E3 (or was it last year), and I have nothing but love for Yakuza 6 and want to see what happens in the end of Kazuma Kiryu's story for the series.

There was an update in December I think, but they've been very quiet about when the game will actually be released. It would be great if it comes out this year.

With pretty much every Kickstarted game ever getting delayed, it does make me wonder why these teams don't just add 12 months to their projected release dates when launching their campaigns, to save disappointment. Hell, the cynic in me wonders if most of these teams know full well they'll never meet the release dates they propose and just do it because they think people will be less likely to pledge if they know they'll be waiting 4 or 5 years for their game.

That’s where I’d put my money.

Wasn’t Bloodstained already delayed once too?
