Christ, it feels like we start one of these threads every month! Last year really slipped by fast... Anyways, here we go:

PS3:

Can't think of any new releases I am eagerly awaiting. Seems like the world is moving on? But there are still a few older games I want to pick up:

- GTA V
- Beyond: Two Souls
- Splinter Cell Blacklist
- Silent Hill HD Collection
- Silent Hill Downpour


PS4:

I will very likely pick one up before the end of the year, but not before I finish most of my PS3 backlog, and they release some more games I am truly interested in. Will likely buy the following titles:

- Infamous: Second Son
- Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
- Thief
- Watch Dogs
- New Uncharted (unlikely to release this year, but I can dream, right? ;))
- New Mass Effect (see above)
- some indie titles, I guess?

PS Vita:

Not planning to spend any money. All the games PS Plus throws at me are more than enough for how little I use it (only for travel). Remote Play with PS4 will be cool!


It looks like it could be somewhat of a slow year overall. PS3 and 360 are winding down, but the new systems have yet to pick up steam.

I've been modding my Gameboy's for the past few weeks, adding backlights, dual display inversion, new cases and buttons. So I've been picking up GB, GBC and GBA games I've missed. 2014 buys so far;

  • Pokemon Silver
  • Dragon Warrior 1-3
  • Dragon Warrior Monsters 1+2
  • Turrican
  • Wario Land 2+3
  • Pokemon Pinball
  • Lemmings
  • The Humans
It's really nice to go back to an era without friend codes, notifications and online features. Feels more "pure" and easy-going :).
