2020 Gaming Plans

Next gen likely coming in the fall. I'm really not that excited for it. At least not yet. I have so many PS4 games still to finish, I may just wait awhile for the PS5.

Right now, I have no plans to get anything this year. Although I'm sure that will change. I'm kind of burned out on sports games, so I'm planning to stick with MLB 19, Madden 20 and 2K20 this year.

Currently playing Jed Fallen Order. I still need to finish Spider-Man and I want to take another shot at The Witcher 3. That one has been sitting in my backlog for years now.

Re: 2020 Gaming Plans

Good news is my sons have games like the Jedi and Days Gone that I can always start playing when I have the time. The bad news is there's just so little time. Surprises aside, just a few must haves for me this year. Most of my maybes can be discount bargain buys. This is good. Time to start catching up with my back logs.

As for 2020;

Re: 2020 Gaming Plans

I don't known yet what i am going to buy this year out side of a few games. I am planing on getting Watch dogs legions. I never played the first 2 but thought this one looked cool from what has been shown. Also have my eye on gods and monsters need more info on it though. I am sure i will have more of a list later but right now i don't its not a big deal though because my backlog is big and most likely i will always have some kind of backlog. I don't really known what i am going to buy for a few reasons.

1. We don't really known what is coming to the switch yet this year. Should have a much better idea after we get are first 2020 direct. Last year switch was loaded with games though.

2. Ps5- I tend to buy systems on day 1 and i would say its likely I will buy ps5 on day 1 to. I am ready the big reason is I am ready for 4k and like full 4k on most games. I don't have a pro only regular ps4. So I have not gotten to play any thing in 4k before and I think simple going from 1080p game play to 4k will make the jump pretty big. Now if you are going from pro and some 4k i think the jump will seem a lot smaller. I am not 100% sure if I will buy the system on day 1 or wait for a little bit even though I would say I am likely to. Need to known launch games and price. If a Horizon zero dawn 2 is a launch game and I think that is likely then I am day 1. Or if a new ratchet and clank game is launch game I am day 1. Also really hoping the rumors about ps5 playing all ps1-ps4 games is true. With so many rumors about it I would fell kind of let down if its not true. I never had a ps1 or ps2 but would love to be able to save the space and not have to have ps3 and 4 plugged in. I am running out of like space having so many things plugged into my tv. Also we do known ps5 will play 4k bluray movies. So I know when the time comes I will not have to have my 4k player plugged in.

Re: 2020 Gaming Plans

I'm currently playing a little bit of...

NBA 2K20
MLB The Show 19
Madden 20
Resident Evil 2
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Mario Party on the Switch (the only video game I can get my wife to play with me lol)

I plan on getting/have already pre-ordered...

MLB The Show 20
Resident Evil 3
The Last of Us 2

And I'll definitely grab a PS5 when it comes out. Not sure what games I'll get with it, but most likely NBA 2K21, assuming it's a launch title. With all of this talk about The Witcher, game and Netflix series, I might also grab The Witcher 3 since I've never played it.

Re: 2020 Gaming Plans

Right now I don't have any plans other than to purchase MLB The Show '20, The Last of Us 2, and a PS5.

That's it.

I'm sure things will change as we are only 5 days into the new year, but when I'm not playing MLB '19, I find myself playing mostly retro games (Sonic the Hedgehog on Genesis, playing thru Super Mario Bros series on NES)

I don't know, I'm finding myself more enticed by the retro games rather than anything on the current/next gen consoles, aside from the 2 games I mentioned.
I can't shave with my eyes closed. Meaning each day, I have to look at myself in the mirror and respect who I see.

I miss the old OS

There are two things you can't get back in this world; time and money. Spend both wisely

Re: 2020 Gaming Plans

2020 is going to be one hell of a year for gaming. A few game of the generation contenders will be releasing as well as next gen consoles in November. Future game wise, I only have 8 thus far for the first half of 2020 but a few of them are 50/50 or will be backlogged.

1. Red Dead Redemption 2
2. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
3. Ratchet & Clank
4. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

After buying Shadow of War and Breakpoint digitally the other day, my backlog increased from two to four games but thankfully, the first quarter is practically empty for me in regards to new releases so I should be able to eliminate all four games completely over the next three months. First up will be RDR 2 which I will finally start tomorrow.

All games will be played on PS4 Pro unless stated otherwise. Asterisk denotes games that are 50/50.

02/14 - Darksiders Genesis

03/13 - Nioh 2 *

04/03 - REmake3
04/16 - Cyberpunk 2077 *
04/24 - Trails of Mana Remake *

05/15 - The Avengers
05/19 - Wasteland 3 *
05/29 - The Last of Us Part II

- Nioh 2 depends on if I can use Save Wizard like I did with the first game in order to max out my health and stamina. If so, game will be completed. If not, game will be eliminated.

- Cyberpunk 2077 depends on if a next gen port gets confirmed for launch. I'm hoping for a delay to year's end so it can be a cross-gen launch title as I would much rather play it on a next gen console than PS4 Pro.

- Trials of Mana Remake depends on what GamingBolt reviews it as well as overall impressions from those I watch on YouTube and follow on Twitter.

- Wasteland 3 is a guarantee but it's release date is horrible for me so I may wait until the end of the year and play it via Game Pass on Xbox 4 instead of buying it for PS4.

I will be pre-ordering Xbox Series X at GameStop once pre-orders open up. As of now, it's looking like Xbox Series X (or XBOX 4 as I call it) will be my primary gaming console for next gen. I already have a few titles that im going to want to play - Halo Infinite, Gears Tactics and backlogged title Wasteland 3. All Microsoft's first party titles will be played via Game Pass. Hellblade 2 is a future guarantee. So excluding Wasteland 3, I have at least 3 exclusives that are guaranteed to be played.

PlayStation 5 wise all depends on their launch lineup. Right now, my expectations are Demon's Souls Remake, Killzone 5 or a new FPS IP, Ratchet & Clank 2 and TLOUP2 MP. Only R&C 2 would be of interest to me. There is Godfall which looks extremely promising based on all the talent Counterplay Games has but at the same time, it's said but not confirmed to be a one year timed exclusive for PS5. So I can always wait if I have to. Really hoping that Sony delays Ghost of Tsushima a few months and releases it as a cross-gen PS5 launch title because I would much rather start PS5 with GOT than end PS4 with GOT.

Multi-platform wise, Assassin's Creed Ragnarok and Watch Dogs Legion will be day one buys as im expecting both to be cross-gen launch titles. Also expecting Dying Light 2 at some point since Techland confirmed a next gen port so my guess would be a delay from Spring 2020 to January 2021 but we'll see.

Overall, first 9 months will be "slow" for me but will ramp up once November hits and the next gen consoles get released.
