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

  • A thread for examining the new games of December! 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.

  • Shovel Knight: King of Cards is what I've been anticipating for August 2017, early 2018, April 2019, this December.

    If you google the title of the game, then at top of the page is "People also ask: Is Shovel Knight king of cards out?". On December 10th, People will be told "Yes!".

  • Phoenix Point is releasing December 3, 2019 on the Epic Games Store. It's coming to Xbox One in early 2020, and PS4 "later" in 2020

    If your an XCOM fan. You probably should check out Phoenix Point. Some of the XCOM inspired games I've played recently have been hit and miss. I liked Mutant Year Zero but I didn't care much for Phantom Doctrine. I'm optimistic for Phoenix Point because it has people like Julian Gollop, creator of the original X-COM working on the game.
