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…
South Park: The Stick of Truth – Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Obsidian. Trey Parker. Matt Stone.
We’re there day 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: 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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
