EZA curates November games: What are you anticipating? What's worth checking out?



  • A thread for examining the new games of November! Share your personal picks, interesting curios, and not quite there possibles...

    .

    Did you discover some small game that not everyone knows about?
    Share that and let us know what it is about!

    Already know a thing or two that interests you?
    Make a list (or a swanky desire index) of your interests and/or possibles!

    Don't know what's so great about an upcoming game you keep hearing about?
    Ask here!

    Don't follow gaming news that closely and just want to passively see what BigGames™ people care about?
    This is the place!

    Thread concept:

    The basic idea is to list new games that you are interested in, as well as games you are potentially curious about or want to give wider attention to. You can briefly describe them or ask other people to help fill you in. The hope is that regular threads like these can act as a collective filter/discovery mechanism to help people decide what is worth checking out.

    "New games" means any new title that is being released or ported this month in any capacity (not "backlogs/what you are playing this month"). The angle here is sharing your anticipation and promoting game discovery (as opposed to sharing comments about a first playthrough in progress - that belongs elsewhere).

    .

    • If you want a handy list that covers most of the major upcoming games of the month, here's a couple text lists of upcoming games:

    Feel free to post other lists or list videos of upcoming releases that you find useful.

    • Final request: If you are the first person to mention a game please provide (at minimum) a short sentence description. (If it is a very big AAA release though, then don't worry about it.) This is a good convention that makes the thread more useful as a discovery mechanism, and especially helps out anyone who doesn't follow the news as closely as you.

    Well, we got some big releases coming very close to each other.. and I will be away most of November for work :(

    But the games I want:
    Death Stranding
    Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order



  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - November 15.

    I've heard good things. Respawn did a great job with Titanfall 2's campaign so hopefully they can do it again.

  • Death Stranding and Fallen Order are going to be two games I wait on for a decent price drop, especially after finally confirming that Death Stranding is kind of what I expected when it comes to its gameplay.

    Romancing Saga 3 - 11th November

    A true classic finally comes to us in English this month so I'll definitely be snagging this one. It's also coming out on the Vita too which I'm really happy to see.

    Shenmue 3

    This is the big game for me though. I don't think I need to explain what makes this release such a big deal, but because of that I'm still quite sceptical on how it will turn out. One thing I love about what I've seen so far is that everything really does look like what I'd expect from a Shenmue follow up. Almost 20 years on since the last game, my biggest concern would normally have been related to how a modern take on Shenmue would almost definitely wreck the whole thing, but everything from the animation, movement and mechanics shown so far, I can't thank them enough for staying true to so much.

    My concerns for Shenmue III now lie mostly with how the game finally came to be (Kickstarted) and the fact that they are picking up on a story left in limbo for almost two decades. My hopes would be that the rest of the story was always and had always been there on paper, just with no way to put it to screen. It really could go either way though. Let's wait and see :)



  • Shenmue 3 and Jedi fallen order.



  • If you asked me 3-4 months ago ''Which games do you want to play in November?'' I would directly say ''Death Stranding and SWJ: Fallen Order'' but with SW's souls-like direction and Death Stranding's EZA review I am not sure anymore.



  • I don't know if it just me but I'm seeing Dusk Diver adds all over the place and it looks dope, I think it already released on Steam, but it's coming out for Switch and PS4 this month so I probably won't play it on release but I'm very interested on it at this point.



  • @scotty I'm curious to hear what the individual Allies will have to say about Death Stranding on Frame Trap or the podcast. Sounds like it'll be pretty polarizing.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern

    Yeah and I'm really curious about how they all feel about it being a really ''cargo simulator''. I don't think majority of gamers were expecting that it will be literally about long cargo deliveries. Also, if Ben's review is anything to by(go and read it, well written) action, stealth, boss fights etc are not good and just average.
