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

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

  • Baldur's Gate III releases for early access on October 6th.

    I also plan on playing Crash Bandicoot 4, Star Wars: Squadrons and Watch Dogs Legion this month. But I'm most interested in Baldur's Gate III despite it being early access. I enjoyed both of Larian Studios Divinity Original Sin games and I expect this to be another great RPG experience.

  • I didn't realize how stacked this month is until now, there's like 8 games I'm interested in. I don't think I need to explain Crash 4, Star Wars Squadrons, and WD Legion. Here's the rest of em'.

    If I had to pick only one for this month (and I'll probably have to), it's gonna be WD Legion. After finishing Ghost of Tsushima, I really want to dive in into another good open world game, and WD2 is one of my favorite open world games from this generation, so I have high hopes for Legion. I would also really consider buying SW Squadrons and Rajj and going broke in the process. There's too many cool games, man.
