Styx looks good too, specially the co-op mode.

The Lego Worlds trailer looks great. Will keep an eye on reviews but with Mass Effect releasing next week it might be a wait-for-a-sale.

Styx looks like a lot of stealthy good-times; I mean come on, goblin assassin! Nier doesn't sound like my kind of thing, but I've been proven wrong before. Colour me intrigued.

I'll be picking up Lego worlds at some stage soon. My boy loves Minecraft and was hoping to get his interest into this as well. Doesn't look easy for a 5 year old to play but ill give it a go. Looks awesome.

Will have to keep an eye on Lego Worlds I think for the Minecraft obsessed kidlet. Might be a while though as he's a bit young

Pretty good week right there. Could play them all... but mostly no time to play, and secondly no expendable income.

I had stayed away from Nier until now, but it looks like everything I love from Too Human.

In like Flint!

Nearly every game does these days sadly. As long as it doesn't infest the single player I'm not too bothered tho, the multiplayer doesn't interest me. I'm waiting for reviews as well, simply because I don't preorder anymore after No Mans Sky.

goddam Nier's combat was super slick, i'll have to put it on hold though, I've got Zelda, then Nioh and Darksouls3 to put to rest too. Persona5 is not that along also.
