This week’s schedule of new releases might be smaller, but still contains a number of notables. Across PlayStation and Xbox One, Noctis Lucis Caelum attempts to liberate his homeland in Final Fantasy XV, while PlayStation 4 and PS Vita owners will be privy to the slightly more somber follow-up to Steins; Gate. One of the more interesting titles to appear this week in the PC release of Watch Dogs 2. Delayed two weeks to improve performance, we’ll soon find out if the sequel shirks the rocky release of the original game.

Robert’s Pick: While a busy schedule means playthroughs of Final Fantasy XV and Watch Dogs 2 probably won’t happen in 2016, a journey through Steins;Gate. As a fan of the original visual novel, I’m especially eager to eager to travel back to Chiyomaru Shikura’s universe, where discussions of science, time-travel, and artificial intelligence, fantastically intermingle. While It would be great to see a simultaneous PC release, it’s hard to beat the portability of the Vita.

  1. I wish all games had characters that fought giant monsters while wearing evening dresses.

  2. FYI: I love racing games. There’s very few I don’t like.

    But the Crew is one of those rare games. Handling, server issues, microtransactions, forced always on-line, avoid it at all costs.

  3. I really wish Final Fantasy XV was coming out for PC. More platforms=more money.

  4. The first Watch Dogs 2 dropped in price pretty quick, so I’m going to wait on the sequel. I do want to play it. Love blowing shit up in sandboxes.

  5. Is Majora’s Mask on 3DS or just Wii U?

    Is the Switch going to have a system like the eShop?

  6. Too many Black Friday deals to buy a full priced game.

  7. Steins;Gate 0 for me this week. I guess hoping for a BF sale is out of the question, right?
