Day1PickUp: September 2018

Day1PickUp is a list of games I’ve pre-ordered or plan to pick up on their release day.  They’re a little different than my other “hauls” because these are planned, and aren’t as random.  I will be discussing most of these games in the lead up to their release, and even after their release I’ll give impressions and/or reviews.   You can also count on me streaming these games upon release so tune in on the front page or at

God of Wars: The Complete Legend – I’m picking this up because it looks pretty fun, but my main draw as a Day 1 Pick-Up is because I’m getting the Collector’s Edition, and up to this point I’ve been able to get every NISA Collector’s Edition so far.  I wanna keep the whole set going

snkSNK Heroines – Again, like God Wars, my main draw for picking this up Day1 is because it’s a NISA Collector’s Edition and I’m trying to get the whole set.   This one actually has some cool, and odd stuff like a hat, tank-top and towel among more common items like art books and soundtracks.   It looks like a fun fighter, I enjoyed the old SNK fighters, but I still haven’t even played my copy of BlazBlue CrossTag Battle yet!

NBA 2K19 – I spent about 150 Hours on NBA 2K18 for the Switch.  I didn’t play much of this series since the GameCube/XBox era, but 2K18 roped me back in.  The grind at the blacktop starts September 11th.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country – I love Xenoblade, so I definitely want to play this expansion, but I still haven’t played my copy of Xenoblade 2!  The cool thing is that this game also comes with the Season Pass for the main game.  I hope this gets me to finally tear into the main game.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 – This is one of my most anticipated games (if not my most) of the year.   It’s like a mixture of Advance Wars and Battalion Wars, it’s real-time and turn-based strategy in one! My experience with the series is limited, I played the 1st one on PS4 and absolutely loved it!  I also played Revolution, and that was much different, and not nearly as good.  4 looks like a return to the series’ original play style, so I can’t wait to jump into this!
