Games of November 2016

It’s that time again!

Looks like it may finally be here. Most people don't even need to ask what by this point. Final Fantasy XV will have a huge bar to live up to for a game that's been in development for about a decade. It's been scrapped, it's been re-written, it's been everywhere but in our hands. The demo from Final Finatasy Type-0 was fun but can the rest live up to that?

With a new Harvest Moon, Pokemon, and Mario Party alongside remakes like Darksiders and Assassin's Creed, this month may be smaller than the rest but it has some awesome titles incoming. Personally? Super Dungeon Bros looks epic alongside the side scrolling Earth's Dawn!

Tuesday November 1st

BlazBlue: Central Fiction - PS3, PS4

First up this month we have a new BlazBlue! Here's a bit on it before the trailer:

Aksys Games and Arc System Works proudly announce that BlazBlue: Central Fiction will release Winter 2016 in North America physically and digitally on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. BlazBlue: Central Fiction is the newest installment in the storied BlazBlue franchise and stands alone as the pinnacle of next gen 2D fighters!

Prepare yourself for a brand new story, new characters, levels, modes, system mechanics and more! Choose from over 33 unimaginable fighters as you battle for 2D supremacy!

and here's the PSN Blog Post from Aksys back in August

Earth's Dawn - PS4

Earth's Dawn was originally supposed to be launched last month however I'm leaving it up on the list instead of as a mention bellow because unlike those this is both a new title and secondly it looks awesome. I love sidescrolling brawlers.

Super Dungeon Bros - PS4, XB1

Supposed to have to come back out in September, I'm also leaving this on the list as I'll be personally covering it. The best part? I'll be getting my brothers together in order to see who's the most super out of us all.

Sadly none of us are named Franky.

Friday November 4th

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - PS4, XB1, PC

The newest COD is here. I'll be honest that I'm not really a FPS player most of the time and I've barely touched this series. Will it be a good direction for the series after the Modern and Advance Warefare? Time will tell!

Mario Party Star Rush - 3DS

I love a good Mario Party like the next person but I wish this would have been at least on the Wii U because sadly I'm one of the only one of my friends that live close to each other that owns a 3DS AND who would want to play.

Tuesday November 8th

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village - 3DS

I'm glad that even after the split that we are still getting Harvest Moons. Thankfully the next one is here for all your non RPG farming needs!

Marvel Pinball: Epic Collection Volume 1 - PS4, XB1

The Boss Man is in for a treat this month with a newer version of Marvel Pinball from the previous one on the PS3. I would personally have to get my hands on one of these or a physical one for the basement that doens't cost a mortgage payment...

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization - PS4, Vita

Sword Art is back with an all new story that was crafted under the supervision of the original author. Love the series and have been waiting for the next installment? Here it is!

Robinson: The Journey - PSVR

It's times like this that I wish I had a VR headet. Alas I'll have to wait for From Software's project before jumping on that wagon. It does look great though!

Thursday November 10th

Root Letter - PS4, Vita

Fans of visual novels have something to look forward to this month with Root Letter which is about solving a decade old murder.

Dishonored 2 - PS4, XB1, PC

I still really need to go through and play the original. No time like the present as the sequel is here!

Tuesday November 15th

Eagle Flight - PSVR

More to the PSVR category this month is Ubisoft's Eagle Flight.

Overcooked Gourmet Edition - PS4, XB1

I've been hearing great to amazing things about Overcooked from friends and fellow colleagues alike. With a physical release inbound maybe it's time for some local mayhem to happen around here!

Watch Dogs 2 - PS4, XB1

PC releases November 29th

The original Watch Dogs had interesting concepts. Not to let it fall quietly into the night here's the sequel!

Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection - PS4, XB1

For all those that either haven't played, played and wated to go back again in a higher definition, Ezio is back. Now if I can just finish Assassin's Creed 2 back on the PS3 and continue the series I'll be happy. Ah backlogs.

The Walking Dead - The Telltale Series: A New Frontier - PS3, PS4, 360, XB1

Still needing to play the Season 2, Telltale is back with a new installation of The Walking Dead. I'm happy to know that Clementine is still alive. While I don't watch TV, I do know how Season 7 of the show started so here's hoping for no parallels.

Thursday November 17th

Planet Coaster - PC

Nick has already had a chance to take a look at Planet Coaster and here were his final thoughts on it:

"Sure, we have a little ways to go until the game is ready to go, but what I have gotten to see so far has made me incredibly optimistic that Planet Coaster could be one of the best simulation games in quite some time. Those looking for a proper RollerCoaster Tycoon game will likely want to check this title out when it releases next month."

Friday November 18th

Pokemon Sun and Moon - 3DS

There are a few of us on the team that are fans of this long running RPG Grind Heavy series. Yes they are cute, but they are also very powerful and there's nothing better than mowing through your opponents to prove that you're a better trainer than they are!

Killing Floor 2 - PS4

The Killing Floor 2 released on the PC a while back. Launching for the first time on the consoles step into a crazy ride of FPS survival against some rather insane "things".

Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition - PS4, XB1

Been holding off on Battlefront until the Season Pass content all came to pass? Now's the time!

Tuesday November 22nd

Darksiders Warmastered Edition - PS4, XB1

After the Deathinitive Edition of the second entry I could have only HOPED for a remake of the first. Wishes were granted because here it is. Also? The newly renamed THQNordic rock.

Tuesday November 29th

The Crew Ultimate Edition - PS4, XB1

The Crew are back for a slew of crazy driving stunts and awesome looking vehicles.

Final Fantasy XV - PS4, XB1

Finally this month, la piece de resistance.

Can this live up to everything that some of us have been hoping for over the past decade? T-Minus 28 days.

Note: Several releases such as Tumblestone, The Atari Classics, The SteamWorld Collection, Runbow: Deluxe Edition, Cartoon Network Battle Crashers, We Sing and Steins;Gate 0 can be found between some of the lists from previous months as they were either fully pushed back or were console specific delayed.
