Day1PickUps: October 2018

day1bannersmall
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 twitch.tv/theGamerPad

mm11Mega Man 11 – Are you kidding me? A brand new Mega Man game (and it looks good!).  Of course I’m getting this Day 1

SMP.pngSuper Mario Party – I’m honestly not that excited about this game, but I know a lot of people in the Discord Server are getting it.  It’s also a Nintendo title, so I’m bound to get it anyways.

D1
Disgaea 1 Complete Edition – I only played a little of Disgaea 5, but what I played, I really liked.  This is a remaster of the first Disgaea, and I hope to jump into this.  I got the Collector’s Edition!

 

twewyThe World Ends With You Final Remix – I never played this when it came out on DS.  My wife did and she had high praises for it, I’m pretty excited for this release.

starlink.pngStar Link: Battle For Atlas – Ubisoft sure knows how to draw in Nintendo fans, I was sold on the Arwing toy alone, but the fact there are Star Fox missions makes this really cool.  It actually looks like a pretty good game too, hope it turns out that way.

mfl.pngMutant Football League – This has been one of my most anticipated games of the year, and a game I repeatedly begged the developers to bring to the Switch.  I loved the humor and fun of the original Mutant Leage games, I’m glad it’s almost here, I really can’t wait to sink some time in this!

yom.pngYomawari – I honestly don’t know much about this, but it’s a NISA Collector’s Edition so I again feel obligated to pick it up to keep my collection going

godwars copy
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!

nba2k19
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.
