OH MAN! October seems to be the Month that takes away all your money and have you stock up your XBOX or PS4 titles (Or Steam, of course) With re-releases like Duke Nukem 3D, Batman: Return to Arkham, and the sequel to Titan-Fall, there is more than reason enough to spend a few dollars to brush off the dust bunnies on your next gens (If you haven’t already) . Let’s see what excites the NPC Collective THIS MONTH!
Let’s start with the honorable mentions.
Dragonball Xenoverse 2, (Oct. 25)
We here at the NPCC are huge anime fans, and we are no stranger to DragonBall Z. So, of course, we got excited when Xenoverse 2 was announced. If you enjoyed the first one, you should have a blast with the newest title. See what I did there? Only a few details are released about this game but they did provide a character list. I wonder if we will touch the new Super Saiyan God in this one?
Batman: Return to Arkham (Oct. 18)
Return to Arkham come with both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City along with all the DLC included. If you have not had the pleasure of taking down the goons of Arkham or if you just want to take over the role as Batman and run through these titles again, we highly recommend it.
Titanfall 2 (Oct. 28)
The most anticipated online FPS is back and this time with a offline story-mode. Personally, I didn’t have an Xbox One with the original title released but I am interested in the story-mode in a game that didn’t originally have one. A lot of upgrades from the original release along with more maps, more titans, and more details on the world of TitanFall. If they can pull off the single player mode as well as they pull of the online multiplayer, I’m sure this is a title some of us at the NPCC can sink our teeth into.
Duke Nukem 3D 20TH Anniversary Edition: World Tour (Oct 11)
Ok, let’s remember the time where Duke Nukem: Forever wasn’t released. The time were you would replay your Duke Nukem games hoping that you would be able to play a new title with this Bubble-gum chewing “Bad*$$” in the next gen graphics. Well, this re-release is as close as you are going to get on a PS4 or Xbox that is tolerable. Why not give it a gander? At least, a Redbox rental….
Gears Of War 4 (PREORDERED: OCT 7TH, Worldwide Oct:11th)
This Xbox title heavy weight is back, and takes place 25 years after Gears 3. New weapons, new enemies, new characters. Even though we are to see some of the original characters, we are sure that the story and gameplay will not fail to amaze. Rumor has it that the story will change depending on what character player 2 selects on co-op mode. I like the sound of that. While the replay value just increased, This is definitely on the Buy list.
Friday the 13th: The Video Game (Oct 2016, TBA)
Similar to “Dead by Daylight”, this title plays just like a horror movie. In this case, Friday the 13th. One person plays as Jason Voorhees, and 7 other characters plays the camp counselors. The 7 players try to survive the juggernaut that is Jason or kill him by working together or going solo. This game uses the same crew of the “Friday the 13th” films, like Kane Hodder (Jason), Ronnie Hobbs (Writer), and Tom Savini (Make-up creator). With original creators of the film on board with the game, I highly doubt they will let their baby’s name be tarnished.
PS VR (Oct 2016, TBA)
This not actually a game, but we here are excited for the PS4 Add-on. Personally, I always wanted to have a VR game since I saw this on “The First Kid”.
Yes, the Sinbad Movie.
The initial titles are awesome, for example, Batman. Even though we already talked Batman on this list, why wouldn’t you want to be batman without the needed physical attributes? Hoping that more titles in the future will lean towards the VR experience, this may on the watch list for some until the hefty price of $499 drops to something more affordable.
This is the List for October, Comment below if we have missed anything that you are excited about. Don’t be shy, tell us why.
