It's 2015, folks. Brace yourselves and your wallets, because it's going to be a bumpy ride. If anything, this year is set to be another big one in regards to the amount of great games set to come out. From Sony to Microsoft to Nintendo, each of the Big Three all have major titles on the way, and the big third parties all have their big titles coming as well. But let's not forget indies as well as a number of small devs are churning out what will arguably be some of the best games this year as well. In light of this, we've polled a number of the GP staff, and here's what they're most looking forward to in 2015. Jason Clement - Editor-in-Chief - The Legend of Zelda (Wii U) Mainline console Zelda games are the Uncharted games of Nintendo. In the last decade we've only gotten two brand new entries so when a new one does release, it's an exciting time. What makes The Legend of Zelda for Wii U so anticipated by many is that it looks to deliver on taking the series to even newer heights with its massively open world, seamless gameplay-to-cutscene integration, and the best visuals the franchise has seen to date. We still have no idea what the story is at this point (or what the eventual subtitle will be), but if it can deliver on top of everything else, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U has the potential to be the best game in the series yet. Also looking forward to- - New Fire Emblem (3DS) - Star Fox (Wii U) Marcus Estrada - Managing Editor - American Truck Simulator Euro Truck Simulator 2 is one of those games that people think is a total joke until they give it a shot. After finally settling down behind the wheel of a digital big rig I understood and wanted to do nothing more than ferry packages between locations. Of course, I had no idea what any of these cities were. American Truck Simulator is poised to bring that same weirdly addictive trucking gameplay back but placed in a setting I'm actually familiar with. Sure, the sprawling countrysides may not be so different but I'll definitely have a better sense of scope if my goal is to drive from San Diego to Los Angeles or from Florida to Ohio. At least if things go according to plan, American Truck Simulator will be coming on February 20th! Also looking forward to- - Yakuza 5 - The Fruit of Grisaia Barrel - Staff Writer, Moderator - Bloodborne My thoughts on the Souls games have constantly fluctuated. I wouldn't really label myself as a hardcore fan of any particular entry but rather as someone who has become increasingly curious about the series moving forward. Yet, before I knew it, I've religiously played each entry with renewed interest due to their highly varied player progression, challenging bosses/scenarios, intriguing multiplayer integration, and thoroughly connected world exploration that feels genuinely rewarding (and not just a means to ride a horse in samey, bloated environments). Oh, and I also bought a PS4 much earlier than I intended to on the basis of playing the spiritual successor, Bloodborne, early. In any case, Bloodborne looks like a refreshing departure from its predecessors with its many sweeping changes to the combat mechanics and general setting, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Also looking forward to- - The Witcher 3 - Xenoblade Chronicles X Leah Santa Cruz - Staff Writer - Persona 5 Persona 4 was one of those games I randomly decided to buy and it was probably one of the best gaming decisions in my life. It's become one of my all-time favorites and it is a very important game to me. As such, Persona 5 is something that I am immensely looking forward to this year (and I RARELY get hyped for anything anymore). With Persona 5, I am hoping for more of the magic that Persona 4 brought while still being able to be its own unique thing. Just thinking about everything that Persona 5 has to offer gets me so excited, such as what the characters and story will be like. Now let's hope that it does come out this year and isn't delayed again! Also looking forward to- - Story of Seasons - Armikrog Julian "Ludono" Rittmayer - Staff Writer, Moderator - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Short is the list of franchises I still get hyped up about, and Metal Gear Solid ranks toward the top of that list. Each main entry in the series has been quite—pardon the pun—solid, and I have no fear that my faith in Hideo Kojima will be unfounded. Indeed, last year's bite-sized Ground Zeroes only added more fuel to the fire, giving us a taste of the reworked engine, the new controls and providing an excellent preview of what's to come! The closer we get to release, the more we find out about this game, with new-and-improved Metal Gear Online mode coming alongside The Phantom Pain. Some may say it's too early to call, but I can easily see this game becoming my Game of the Year down the road... Also looking forward to- - Resident Evil Revelations 2 - Rise of the Tomb Raider Jonathan Higgins - Staff Writer - Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker ATLUS, I love you. Both Devil Survivor: Overclocked and the original Devil Survivor 2 take up the #2 and #3 spots in my 3DS Activity Log (behind—you guessed it—PokÃ©mon Y) with 415 hours across both games. They combine the best gameplay elements of Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest, and PokÃ©mon. Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker features twice the content of the original version and a complete overhaul that does what Devil Survivor: Overclocked did for its original version from 2009. There will be voice-acting, outstanding visuals, and so much stuff to do that I“m bound to spend 200 more hours in modern-day Japan fighting demons as a bunch of high school kids. Also looking forward to- - Radio the Universe - Codename: S.T.E.A.M. Chris "WildCardCorsair" Garcia - Staff Writer - Splatoon It isn't every day you hear Nintendo reveal a new IP, and even rarer for them to tackle anything resembling a shooter, but at the end of the day Splatoon couldn't be more Nintendo-ish if it tried. The zany character designs, catchy tunes, and original approach to the arena shooter genre screams "must own" for me. And now with the latest Nintendo Direct we even have info on character customization, weapon availability and that sweet, sweet in-game hub. I don't even have an inkling of how many hours I'll likely be spraying paint all over everything like Jackson Pollock with Parkinson's. Not to mention it's another game for my Wii U; sounds like I'll be one happy clam. Also looking forward to- - Codename S.T.E.A.M. - Persona 4: Dancing All Night Which games are you looking forward to in 2015? Let us know in the comments!
Time for this thread - again! That's right, I want to hear what your gaming goals are for 2015. It can be anything from finally beating x number of games in your backlog to better gaming habits and whatnot. What are mine? 1) Mainly, I'm aiming not to waste as much time and play only the games I really like. If I'm not enjoying a game at all, I'll move on after a reasonable amount of time trying to play whatever it was. 2) Actually play the games I buy. Sometimes I'll buy games and never get to them (yes, I know a lot of us have this problem; backlog and all), and I'm talking about recently released games that I plan to play, but just never do. I've actually been making some progress on this recently, so anything new that I buy, I usually start playing it within a week or so. Feels good not to waste money! 3) Spend more time on games that I really enjoy; aim to do as much as possible in those games (in most cases, probably 100%) to get the most value out of them. 4) Work through smaller backlog games in bite-sized sessions; especially handheld games. This means literally playing through them 10-30 minutes at a time until they're finished. My average game session is anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, but if I can squeeze in some time on other games (even just a little bit), I'll have a better chance of finishing them. 5) Finally work through some of the RPGs in my backlog. I've got some big ones still needing to be played, like Crisis Core, FFT: WoL, FFXIII and XIII-2. That's what I can think of at the moment. What about you? Any conscious gaming goals you've made?
