Some have said that 2015 was a year of broken dreams, but 2016 looks to be absolute gold. Good thing I got a new job.

SO MANY GOOD GAMES! MY BODY IS READY!

What are you guys looking forward to?

I'm glad you're excited, but I think the best thing for the gaming community is to keep hype in check. With that said, I'm looking forward to the PS4 Ratchet and Clank remake.

But seriously though, here are some of the titles I'm most looking forward to (copied from my GAF list and in no particular order):

* Street Fighter V
* Zelda Wii U (it's totally a TP situation and will be on the NX as well)
* World of Final Fantasy (overshadowed by FF7 remake and FFXV, but this game looks so cute and whimsical, I really think it'll be a surprise hit)
* FFXV
* Star Ocean V
* Persona 5
* SMT4: Final
* Uncharted 4
* Mirror's Edge
* Abzu
* Scalebound (I can't turn down a Kamiya game!)
* Cuphead
* Gravity Rush 2
* Yooka Laylee
* Zero Escape 3
* 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (we haven't seen much of it, but I think it has major potential)
* Dragon Quest XI
* Odin Sphere
* Tekken 7 (if it's 2016, which I'm not sure of)
* Nier Automata

And the late localizations for stuff like Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Explorers, Dragon Quest (SO HAPPY THESE ARE CONFIRMED FOR THE WEST), Popolocrois, and Style Savvy 3.

Also Nintendo is totally releasing the NX next year.

Speaking of TP, there is that HD version. I don't think it looks that good. TP already feels very dated visually and it looks like they didn't do much except upscale it and make Link's shield look unusually bright.(Am I the only one who noticed that?) I wasn't too big on the bloom-pocalypse of WW HD, especially since WW still looks good today, but this feels lazy.

It's worth noting that TP was outsourced to Tantalus and wasn't done in-house like WW HD was, which may be why it lacks that bit of extra oomph.

HD ports in general are pretty much just schedule fillers/fanservice most of the time that don't take much effort to make. I guess it's a shame they didn't do more. At the very least some of the models could've stood to have a higher polygon count since that's probably the most dated aspect of TP, but ah well.

I might pick it up just because it comes out near my birthday, it's been so long since I played Twilight Princess and I need my Zelda fix till the new one comes out, and the Wolf+Midna amiibo is tempting. Isn't this version based on the GCN one, actually? I noticed Link was lefthanded.

I donated to Yooka-Laylee, and Cuphead looks pretty promising!

What, no South Park: Fractured But Whole?

There's so much stuff coming out it's easy to forget, ahahaha. I didn't play the first South Park but I heard really good things about it. Hopefully the second one doesn't go through the same weird release date/publisher drama that I heard about first time around.

I didn't actually back Yooka-Laylee even though I'm excited for it, which I feel kinda bad about. Is there a slacker-backer option?

There's plenty of stuff that I'm "low-key excited" for but I'm not hugely invested in, actually. Stuff like Yakuza 6 (most because I've never played that series before, but I'll definitely jump in when 5 finally hits our shores). And I feel like that SMT x Fire Emblem thing will be a nice way to tide me over until P5, if all goes well.

I'm cautiously optimistic for Star Fox. Hopefully the five-month delay has given them time to address the concerns that myself and others had. It looked pretty good in the new trailer during today's Direct, but maybe that was just excitement goggles. I'll have to watch the presentation again!

I can't believe I forgot DQ XI. I've been itching for some more of that series. Good to see the 3DS versions of VII and VIII coming out of Japan finally. This will be a good excuse to replay VIII.

This is kind of a weird personal thing for me, but DQ VII is the only main DQ, aside from X, that never grabbed me. I dunno, I've tried to play it before and it's never taken my interest like the rest of them. Perhaps I'm just spoiled because of how much I love V and VIII. Maybe I'll give the remake a chance.

DQXI looks so good. I like the approach they're taking with it - full 3D on the PS4, top-down retro on 3DS. Next year will be amazing for Square Enix. It's awesome how they seem to be back on the top of their game.

I saw the PS1 version of VII for a decent price a few months ago but didn't grab it. In retrospect I'm glad I waited. Heard the 3DS version is far superior; it even has a new translation. Of course I'm not an expert, but I'll have to look into it more.

I never played VIII either but I'm happy I'll finally be able to now.
