October is an exciting month for gaming, and I am super excited for a couple of things this month but we will get to my top choices of games for this month in a bit.
Forza Motorsport 7 (Xbox One, released 7th October) looks fantastic, and if it is anything like as enjoyable as it predecessors it will be a fantastic game. I’m not getting this straight away but hopefully I will find out. My problem with these games is I drift in and out and get through them so slowly so technically I have about three FM games on the go as well as FH2 and FH3 so I’m all Forza-ed out at the moment. That said I will probably pick this up sometime in the future.
Lego Ninjago Movie Game is out on PS4/Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on the 6th October. Lego games are generally awesome and so I have high hopes for this one. Again, I’m not sure I will pick it up but I do want to know what people think of this if they get it.
Mario & Luigi Super Star Saga + Bowsers Minions (3DS) is out on the 6th October. It’s a Mario and Luigi double team and Bros. moves should add an interesting element to this game. Puzzles to solve and areas to explore in the quest to restore Peach’s voice. Sounds like a fun game to me.
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is out on Nintendo 3DS, also on the 6th October in Europe. I love the Professor Layton games, even if some of the puzzles are frustrating. This game sees Katrielle take centre stage and attempt to find her missing father but finds the Millionaires’ Conspiracy. I find Professor Layton games easy to get into and you can drop in easily at any Layton game, and this looks exciting. Definitely on my list!
Now briefly onto games I’m slightly less interested in owning, however will (probably) have a massive following and do look like fantastic quality games but they just don’t seem to be for me. Friday the 13th The Game (Xbox One/PS4, 13th October), could this have been out on any other date? Personally, I’m not really a big horror game (or film) fan so this is one I shall be skipping but if you like this sort of thing then I would suggest this is worth a look at. The Evil Within 2 (Xbox One/PS4, 13th October) falls into the same I’m not interested category as the words survival horror fill me with some fear. However, I hope this does well and people get enjoyment from it. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PS4/Xbox One, 27th October) also looks really good, but I haven’t played any of the previous Wolfenstein games so I don’t really know what to think of this. There seems to be a lot of fan excitement so should be good to see how this one performs.
Now I said at the start that I’m super excited for a couple of games and I have mentioned a few that I am looking forward to and some that I think people will enjoy but aren’t going to be for me. So, what am I extra excited for? That would be Assassin’s Creed Origins (Xbox One/PS4/PC, released 27th October) and Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch, released 27th October).
Despite not owning a Switch I am so excited to see Super Mario Odyssey be released and hope to be able to try it out sometime. I just need to find someone I know with a Switch and buys the game so I can have a play! I am still wishing I owned a Switch but hopefully in the future I will be able to get one and the games which have been released for it this year that I would love to play.
Assassin’s Creed is one of my favourite series of games, yes it as a series has had its downsides and criticisms but I still enjoy each of the games. Origins has been said to improve the fighting system which I look forward to trying, I am intrigued as to Ancient Egypt location and the character who we shall follow. From all I have seen so I far I think it looks fantastic and I am so excited to get this.
What are you looking forward to this month? Have you planned to get any of these games or are there others which are top of your list?
