This Week In New Releases – The Holiday Buying Edition (Week 1)

Rather than share with you the new releases coming out, we have decided to share the games from this year that are our favorites that we'd recommend buying for another gamer as a holiday gift, and why we chose each game.

Overwatch (PC, PS4, XB1)

I chose Overwatch because Blizzard knows how to make a game that can captivate the gaming audiences. It’s one of the few games that has viewers that aren’t even interested in gaming. Likewise, they built wonderful backgrounds to their character to build a story despite the lack of a campaign.

 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition (PC, PS4, XB1)

I love the fact that Bethesda is allowing gamers to revisit an old game on newer consoles. Yes, remasters and remakes are controversial, but few studios will put in true time and effort to create something done so well.

Titanfall 2 (PC, PS4, XB1)

Final Fantasy XV (PS4, XB1)

Final Fantasy XV, in my opinion, is easily the best RPG to release this year. It is a great game for new and old Final Fantasy fans alike, as well as for any fan of RPGs.

 

Recore (PC, XB1)

 

 

Recore just takes everything that made old school adventure-platformers great and modernizes the formula for a new generation of gaming. It is in my opinion, a vastly under-appreciated game.

 

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (PC, PS4, XB1)

I absolutely love Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The developer did a fantastic job of mixing RPG-elements into a fighting game, thus making the game fantastic, and it is one that any anime fan will adore.

Titanfall 2 (PC, PS4, XB1)

In my opinion, the first Titanfall redefined the FPS genre as far as pilot movement and scale with having the Titan companion. Titanfall 2 expands on the formula from the first game with more features, a wider selection of Titans to choose from, and an actual single-player campaign.

 

Inside (PC, PS4, XB1)

Inside has an AMAZING atmosphere, great puzzle elements, and a fun weird, ride from beginning to end. Playdead is one of my favorite game developing studios, and they worked on Limbo prior to releasing Inside.

Fire Emblem Fates (3DS)

Fire Emblem Fates completely changed up the Fire emblem dynamic with the introduction of three different storylines centered around the same group of characters. The Birthright & Conquest storylines are both very similar in which you pick a side of two rival families, but with Revelation, you have to get these 2 rival families to unite for the greater good. 

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PS4)

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End marks the end of Nathan Drake’s story in which he decides to go on one last treasure hunt with Sully & his brother, who is a brand new character, Sam Drake. In one of the chapters you get to play Crash Bandicoot on an original PlayStation, talk about fan service. Uncharted 4 has action-heavy sequences, a compelling narrative, and features characters that you will ultimately get attached to, which will make you not wanting to put your controller down until you reach the end.

 

Hopefully, we have given you a diverse choice of games to choose from to buy for that gamer on your holiday shopping list, and as always, happy gaming!!

Feel free to contact us on Twitter (@PBG_Network), and we will be most happy to give you more game recommendations.

Also, don’t forget to check out this month’s Games With Gold & PlayStation Plus games as well.
