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 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.

  • I'll be checking out John Halo's open world adventure and The Gunk.

  • Very empty month for me personally, although I don't mind it at all cuz I got lots to catch up on. One game I'm curious about is Heavenly Bodies. Seems like it could be challenging and relaxing/soothing at the same time, in a somewhat cartoony way. Comes out on PS5, PS4 and PC in December 7th.

  • Not much for me, my backlog has expanded greatly recently anyway.

    But I'll keep an eye out for Record Of Lodoss War: Deedlit In Wonder Labyrinth (16th) that's finally coming to Switch, heard great things about it since it came out on PC.

    There's also Danganronpa Decadence (3rd), I've never played any of those, and since I love Ace Attorney, something tells me I'll enjoy them.

  • @Shoulderguy Beat me to it but Halo Infinite seems like it's going to have a very fun Campaign. I might download it on Game Pass and check out the first level or so, but I'm ultimately going to keep chipping away through Halo 1-4, watch a video about 5, then play Infinite co-op in 9 months when it finally gets patched in.

  • Syberia 4 for me, possibly my most anticipated of the year.

  • Chorus seems to be getting decent reviews. It's a space combat game developed by Fishlab, a developer who I'm used to be quite familiar with, when they're known for making graphically impressive mobile games ages ago. Space combat is their wheelhouse so I'm not surprised to hear that it's the best aspect of this game, although reviewers don't like the story and some other parts that much. Probably keeping this on my wishlist for now. It's out on PS4/5, Xbox Series, PC, Stadia.

  • Will be getting game pass for halo, and that's about it so will also try to get psychonauts 2 out of the way as well and maybe unsighted otherwise it's SMT5 TIME.
