This year is off to a great start. Every week, we have been announcing new games, and the first half of this year is packed with giant AAA franchises, clever indie games, unique VR experiences, and, yes, even PS Vita games. There is so much to play this year, and we have not even heard the E3 announcements.
We are sure this year will produce some…less than quality games too, but it seems like we are beginning to see the huge wave of games start to hit. For you, is it too much, is it too little, or are you in the Baby Bear “just right” for the games released to played ratio? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Here is what we are doing this weekend.
I’ll be delving deep into inXile’s Torment: Tides of Numenera, exploring the twisting pathways of its choice driven questing so we can bring you a timely review when the NDA drops on the 28th. There’s also the small matter of the For Honor open beta and a voice from my left just told me I have to continue with my replay of Resident Evil HD. Games!
I am going to immerse myself in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. Until recently, my stealth skills left a lot to be desired (why wouldn’t you want to go in all guns blazing?). But I have now learnt to reel things in and see the bigger picture, so I’m putting my newly found tippy-toes to good use.
This weekend I will be playing more No Man’s Sky, as I never really tested out the big Foundation Update. Other than that, it’s all work work work.
This weekend is going to be pretty tame compared to last week, as I only plan on working on my Semispheres review and playing Battlefield 1. Also, it’s not gaming related but I’ll be watching Keanu meticulously destroy bad guys in John Wick 2, like how I take care of business in shooters.
I will finally be taking the plunge on Uncharted 4. (Feel free to clutch your pearls and gasp.) I hear it is not bad, and, with the 12+ GB patch, I am hoping all the bugs have been squashed. I will also be taking a stab at For Honor during the open beta.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
