Games I’ve preordered 2018 – Part 1

Now to something a bit different but still a bit familiar. This time is not a list of games
I want, but games I’ve preordered. So this time around it’s not the games I’m looking forward to in 2018, but rather I’ll speak a bit of the the games I’ve preordered and are coming out this year. If nothing happens to delay them, something I can’t foresee when I’m writing this. I’m splinting this post up into parts of 5 games per post, so it doesn’t get to clotted.
 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2018 | Buying for: PlayStation 4 (Maybe Switch)

Firstly we’ll start with something that isn’t really a preorder? Or is it? Either way I’ve been waiting for Bloodstained ever since I donated to the Kickstarter and hopefully nothing happens and we’ll finally see a release this year. Well I’m really looking forward to getting a new “Igavania” like game, it could actually be one of the games I’m looking forward to most this year. I’m also thinking about buying a second copy of the game, since my Kickstarter copy is a PlayStation 4 version, I might buy a Switch version.
 

Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze [Switch]

Release: 2018-04-05 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I never was a fan of the Wii U, so I skipped a bunch of games on the console. But this time around with the Switch I’m going to buy as much of the games Nintendo put out.
I really want to support them. So I’m extra glad they are releasing Tropical Freeze, so I a Wii U deserter can have a chance to play this fun looking game.
 

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

Release: 2018-05-18 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Hyrule Warriors was one of the titles I actually played on Wii U, but got a bit pissed when the 3DS got a version with a whole lot of improvements. That Switch owners where locked out of, but they are finally fixing this little misstep (IMO).
With the Switch version is brings the best of both versions of the game.
 

Shining Resonance Refrain

Release: 2018-07-10 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I’m not sure how many Shining games we got outside of Japan, at least the none SRPG ones. Not so interested in those myself, but I’m very interested in this title.
Firstly I really like Tony Taka’s artstyle, especially how he draws elfs. Mmm…
But it looks like a fun JRPG, with battles in the vein of the Tales of games. And it’s based heavily around music and the characters weapons are also instruments and that is very intriguing to me.
 

Octopath Traveler

Release: 2018-07-13 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I wasn’t very into this game from the start, but the more I saw and saw of my friend trying the demo, it sold me on the game. It looks charming and at the same time I feel relaxed and happy when I see the sprites in this game. Time will tell if this preorder was a wise one, since I’m still a bit on the fence about this one.
Sure, Shining Resonance might not be a wise buy either. But I’m taking my chance with both and I hope they’ll be great.

  1. Haha “part 1″… I actually don’t have any preordered games at the moment
    but from this list I will probably get Bloodstained, Shining Resonance and
    Octopath Traveler.

    Only three days to beat Shining Resonance I see, this will be one crazy gaming year as well seeing these games and a few indie titles in summer, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest etc. later and who knows what E3 might bring!

  2. @ opkij:
    I actually have about 10games preordered right now.
    It’s thanks to GameStop Swedens trade-in deal, trade in one game from a list of games and get a new one for 199kr.
    The first round when it came it, there was a lot of cheap games that was on the list. So I made a killing trading in cheap games. :D

    Hence, why I have so much preordered.
    Only three to beat it yeah! xD
    Oh, boy. I’m going to have to much to play. Help me!
