    Definitely need to hold one of my 10 back for JC4 in December.

    Maybe I should hide from the steam sale this summer....

    Fuck it might as well admit it, I'm now way past 10 because of the PSN sale. It was a good run!

    The good thing about a December release for JC4 is that you could push it into your first purchase of 2019!

    Feb 2019 is going to be tough next year by the looks of it!

    I didn't feel JC3 as much as I thought, despite loving 1&2, so may hold off for a while this time.

    Same, although seeing as the platforms I own are PC and Switch, I have yet to see those presentations and the joys they will bring.

    I must thank this thread for delivering for me though. Last week when I was contemplating buying PUBG even though I had a load of old games to play and had just bought BattleTech, I decided against it and started playing BattleTech instead, only to find it is utterly brilliant and just my sort of thing.

    Can't seem to stop playing once I start!

    I downloaded The Division and Elder Scrolls Online on game pass, and bought Battlegrounds because it was less than a tenner. That brings me to 12 for the year. Sorry folks, my heart was never really in it.

    @Phattso

    I'm up to seven, good sir. Hollow Knight for the Switch. It had always been on my list of games to get this year, so figured why not get stuck in straight away.

    I'd be concerned about being ahead of the curve here, but there aren't that many other must-have games for me coming this year. Gonna wait to see if Red Dead comes out on PC, Metro is 2019, doesn't look like we're getting Bloodborne 2 or any other From game this year, or TLOU2... just the next PES and Mount & Blade II, really, and there's a lack of news about that too so far.

    Can I go back down to 0? I've decided not to count VR purchases, instead classing them as investing in the technology and games of the future.

    Can I go back to zero? I've decided to count only JRPG roguelikes, and I haven't bought any of them yet.

    So, Hollow Knight, eh. Bloody hell it looks good! Lovely aesthetic, tight controls. Very nice.

    Glad I waited for the Switch, too. Seems a good fit. Runs smoothly, graphics are sharp. Time for another go in bed...

    So I have 5 left for the year and now an idea of what's coming.

    I guess a little planning couldn't hurt.

    RDR is a given. 6/10
    Forza Horizon 4 on Games Pass is also most likely to happen 7/10

    That leaves me 3 and I reckon I'll go for

    Smash 8/10
    Wargroove 9/10
    And Mario Tennis 10/10

    Think anything else can either wait til 2019 or swivel. I wonder if my resolve will last, I need to get my money's worth from the previous 5 still. I've only completed Superhot from my purchases so far.

    I've been getting great value from most of my first few. Fifa debatable, and Project Cars 2 I've barely touched, but the others have been spot on. Subnautica and Kingdom Come in particular have been some of my favourite games.

    Hollow Knight looks like another winner. It reminds me a lot of Rogue Legacy - they feel really similar to play, similar moveset. And I absolutely loved Rogue Legacy, played it to death on the Vita.

    But you've thoroughly rinsed 80% of those must have gems, right?

    @OnlyJoeKing Very tempted by Hollow Knight. How difficult is it, relative to Rogue Legacy for example? I never finished RL but found it just about the right side of frustrating on the difficulty front.

    @THFourteen

    Free/mobile games count if you spend money on them or play them regularly. I guess you can demo them a la Steam for 2 hours then decide if it's a keeper.

    @monkman76 hollow knight is really fucking good :) I have it on ps4 and re bought it on switch for £4 (cos I had gold points \o/). It is kinda like a 2D souls game and is super slick.

    I have added 4 more games to my buy list

    Mario tennis aces
    Fifa 18
    Celeste
    Hollow knight

    All on switch

    @rice_sandwich I... have not rinsed 80% of the 10 games I bought/downloaded, no. But in my defense I'd consider well over half of them still "In progress":

    1) Redout- in progress
    2) Octodad : Deadliest Catch- abandoned by the kids
    3) Stories of Bethem - abandoned
    4) The Surge complete edition - abandoned (may return after completing Dark Souls 2)
    5) Just Cause 3 XL - completed
    6) Titanfall 2 - in progress
    7) Dark Souls 2 SotFS - in progress
    8) Sea of Thieves - abandoned
    9) State of Decay 2 - enjoyed but not really completed, uninstalled
    10 - 12) The Division, Elder Scrolls Online, PUBG - only just started (basically treating The Division and Elder SCrolls as extended demos on Game Pass)

    EDIT- ha, so I' ve completed one. Not a good look! :)

    Well i've downloaded Fallout Shelter and Fortnite and a kind forumer as given me The Division , so i guess thats three more. Haven't touched fallout yet, but i can see myself dipping in and out of fortnite after an hour with it this morning. The division i will start after wolftenstein is done, or maybe after Ni No Kuni 2 which i brought in the sale last week.

    Suddenly i'm juggling 4 games at once, trying to 100 percent Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, playing through wolftenstein and Yoku's Island Express, and now got Fornite on the go. And a backlog as suddenly appeared.

    @monkman76 I'm only a couple of hours in, but so far it's about the same, probably a touch easier if anything. I've only died once, but have found one big fucker I have no idea how to tackle. It's got a Souls-like mechanic where if you die you have to get back there to pick up any cash you had on you, so maybe it's necessarily easier, but more tense? I'm very impressed so far, would say that if you liked RL then it's well worth a go.

    Anyone could say the same of their decades long backlog. Games played for even 1 minute are technically still 'in progress'.

    Well, after E3 the rest of the year is looking like two definite purchases in Mario Tennis Aces and Smash Ultimate, plus the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC.

    Otherwise, I have Valkyria Chronicles 4 as a maybe, along with Tales of Vesperia and Captain Cunting Toad. Depends if I have time for anything else. I think Mario Tennis, Splatoon and XC2 will keep me busy all on their own.

    Yeah I did a double-take at that. As far as I could tell from an internet search, it's only on PC and Switch.
