Well it’s been 2019 for a few days now and nothing terrible has happened. But if 2018 is any indication on what’s to come we should be expecting the death of a beloved celebrity and the president of the USA to do something alarmingly racist. However it’s not all doom and gloom on the horizon, we still have video games and this year is shaping up to have some great ones, so here are some of the video games we’re most looking forward to in 2019.
Okay I’ll admit it, although I was initially excited about a video game where I could be an Iron Man-esq bounty hunter my interest in this game has being steadily dropping since its announcement. Mostly because EA continue to be the biggest dicks in gaming but also because they won’t give a straight answer on microtransactions, the greedy fucks. But BioWare are developing it and Casey Hudson, the executive producer of the original Mass Effect trilogy is supervising the whole thing so I remain naively optimistic. But we’ll have to wait until February 22, 2019 to be sure.(“Jet fuel tanks running low, pleas pay $2 to not drop out of the sky!”)
A video game set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian world involving vampires that also takes inspiration from Dark Souls, sign me the fuck up! Apart from it being delayed until some vague 2019 release date not much is known about it, other than it is a stylish anime version of Dark Souls. However given that it is from the same publishers as the Soulsborne games I am quietly hopeful.(“Does this outfit make me look sexually ambiguous? Good!”)
Resident Evil 2
I was looking forward to this game for two reasons, one, I’m a huge fan of the series and two I never got a chance to play it the first time around. That was until the bastards over at Capcom decided that it should have microtransactions in it. We give EA, Activision and Warner Bros shit for this kind of bollocks all the time but Capcom always seem to fly under the radar. For now my interest outweighs my disgust, but rest assured if come January 25 2019 it turns out I have to pay for alternate costumes then Capcom can shove it up their greedy little arseholes.(“I did not sign up for this shit!”)
Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled
Hell yes, this one is one I’ve been praying for ever since we got the Crash Bandicoot N Sane trilogy over a year ago. Stuff your Mario Karts and all that other bollocks up your exhaust pipes, this was the racer for me and my friends back in the day, an action packed game with various race modes, challenges and a kick-ass battle mode. And if Activision’s last two remasters are any indication then June 21, 2019 will be a day of burnt rubber, victory dances and destroyed friendships.
Kingdom Hearts III
Well all I can say is it’s about fucking time Square-Enix; it’s been 13 fucking years since the last main entry game! Yes, fans of the series (like myself) have been waiting a long time for this one and personally January 29, 2019 can’t come soon enough. The final instalment of a story about a young boy who teams up with Donald Duck and Goofy to fight the physical manifestation of the darkness in our hearts with a magic key……….it’s much cooler than it sounds! If it’s even half as good as its predecessors KH III will have an awesome story, a kick ass combat system and enough Disney characters to invade a small island nation.(Goofy looks ready to fuck somebody up!)
