Friday Feeling: Upcoming RPGs to get you feeling good.

Games, eh?  We love them, you love them.  If there’s one genre that really gets us salivating here at Low Fat Gaming though, it’s RPGs.  Can’t get enough of them.  Here are a few that we reckon will have that Low Fat Gaming goodness…

As long as the ‘Stick’ isn’t Mr Hanky, we’re there.

South Park: The Stick of Truth – Xbox 360, PS3, PC

Obsidian.  Trey Parker.  Matt Stone.

We’re there day one.

Elder-Scrolls-Online_PC_WinMac_BOX-tempboxart_160h

The Jury’s out on this one.

Elder Scrolls Online – PC

ZeniMax Online Studios are bringing the Elder Scrolls world on to the MMORPG sphere and they simply can’t loose.  Or can they?  With Bioware’s Old Republic having had a rocky road since release and the rise of F2P and powerhouse that is Guild Wars 2, Bethesda have a trickier job than many would expect with ESO.  Elder Scrolls, though, is Bethesda’s bread and butter so expect them to go big with this.  They have to.

Dragon-Age-3_PS3_BOX-tempboxart_160h

It’s going to be next-gen and it’ll be better than DA2.

Dragon Age 3: Inquisition – PC, Next Generation Consoles

After the misstep that was Dragon Age II, Bioware seem intent on pulling out all the stops for the next installment.  There has been a lot of talk about single areas being bigger than the whole of DA:II but we’re not interested in that.  What we want is a truly next-gen RPG experience – amazing gameplay, a superb story, intriguing characters, plenty of variety, choices that matter and freedom – and we’ll be happy.

witcher3

Geralt will be ploughin’ in the next-generation.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – PC, Next Generation Consoles

We love The Witcher (actually, Matt doesn’t!) and we are hot for The Wild Hunt.  A fantasy RPG for adults, with dubious morals and more shades of gray than a dodgy erotic novel, we predict CD Projeckt are going to have a massive hit on their hands when The Hunt is set loose.

wasteland2

No Wasteland, no Fallout.

Wasteland 2 – PC

The Kickstarter hero, and inspiration to the Fallout series, is due for release in October this year and has a lot of buzz and expectations surrounding it.  Being the highest profile game from the recent Kickstarter trend, inXile Entertainment have a lot to prove.  We’re more than confident they’ll bring the goods.

zelda

Already beautiful on GameCube, this will be a treat in HD.

Zelda: Wind Waker HD – Wii U

Yes, it’s a remake.  We don’t care.  Wind Waker is the best Zelda (yes, it is) and it’s coming back to us in lovely HD.  Trust us, if you’ve never played it it’s worth buying a Wii U for.

fallout4

It’s coming and maybe sooner than you think.

Fallout 4 – PC, Next Generation Consoles

It’s coming.  There have been teases and rumours.  Fallout 4 is coming and it’ll be here sooner than you think.  We really enjoyed Fallout 3 but preferred New Vegas (glitches aside) and hope Bethesda take inspiration from the Obsidian team.  You can count on Bethesda pulling out all the stops though – launching Oblivion early in this current generation turned them into a powerhouse after opening our eyes to what the 360 was capable off.  Expect Fallout 4 to do the same.
