Devil May Cry 5

  • Platform PS4, Xbox One, PS4
  • Release March 8, 2019
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Genre: Action
  • Stocks in Play: Sony $SNE, Microsoft $MSFT, Capcom $CCOEY

The Devil May Cry franchise started back in 2001 and rebooted in 2013 boasting over 16 million sales world wide.  What excites this time is players can take control of favorites Dante and Nero while also introducing the mysterious Goth fighter and demon summoner V to shake things up with three little demons based on enemies from the first game to fight. We meet Griffon, an eagle that uses ranged lightning based attacks, Shadow, a panther that forms blades, spikes and portals out of its body, and Nightmare, a large golem which V enters a Devil Trigger-like state, which turns his hair white, to summon, which uses a combination of melee attacks and laser beams. The game is an actual continuation of the critically acclaimed series.

 Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry New Dawn

  • Platform PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release  February 15, 2019
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Genre: Adventure
  • Stocks in Play: Sony $SNE. Microsoft $MSFT, Ubisoft $UBI

Far Cry New Dawn will be the twelth installment and sixth main title feature in the series and is the standalone sequel to Far Cry 5. Here we are back at Hope County, Montana seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe. Less than a year from when Far Cry 5 came out the new instalment begins after the events of Far Cry 5 taking us the post-apocalyptic era.

Rumors have been all over gaming forums of the content, delving in the crazy world that is global politics in 2018 and beyond. This will aggravate many and be a hoot to play, the more contoversial the more attention. You know the game plan, in a world where the most powerful man on the planet tweets mind wincing comments daily.

 

Yoshi

Yoshi

  • Platform Switch
  • Release  TBD 2019
  • Developer: Bluepoint
  • Genre: Puzzle, Arcade
  • Stocks in Play: Nintendo ADR $NTDOY

There was so much excitement surrounding Nntendo in 2018 after the wild success of Pokemon Go, Switch with the iconic Mario and Link. We were expecting Yoshi to be launched last year now the expectation builds for 2019. The visual content leaks on Yoshi take us to another level on the franchise. Seems like another level of mario level addition on this one. 

Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil 2

  • Platform PS4, XBox One, PS4
  • Release January 25 2019
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Genre: Action
  • Stocks in Play: Sony $SNE $CCOEY

The remake of the classic has gamers old and young buzzing just like the remake of Shadow of the Colossus did last year. The original on PlayStation came out over 20 years ago, I’m excited to see what Capcom has in store for fans with this new take on the classic action-horror title in glorious HD. This version will feature all the visual improvements that modern-gen hardware can provide. While Resident Evil 2 reportedly won’t be featuring the fantastic VR option of 2017’s spine-tingling Resident EVII. release, it will run on that same engine as Leon and Claire do their best to get the hell out of Raccoon City.

Anthem 

Anthem

  • Platform PS4, X Box one, PC
  • Release Feb 22, 2019
  • Developer: Bioware
  • Genre: Action RPG
  • Stocks in Play: Electronic Arts $EA, Sony $SNE, Microsoft $MSFT

The anticipation is mixed on this with the anti EA gamer group loud and proud calling this a poor man's Destiny but for mine I want to see what the developers have with escapism and obtuse elements at its best, can't wait for this one!  Another huge plus, is the game's lead producer confirmed there won't be any season pass or DLC required, a huge plus and perhaps a shout out to Fortnight for that.

Let me know your thoughts on what games you looking forward to in 2019.

Play on....
