Hello everyone! I didn't really play many games this week, but there are plenty of games coming out later this year that I'm super excited about. Atlus has been leaking all kinds of information about Persona Q and Persona 4 Ultimax leading up to their releases, and I still can't wait to play those. Initially, I wasn't too sure about Persona Q, but it looks like it's shaping up to be a fun little game! Seeing all my favorite characters in adorable chibi form in the trailers has been quite a treat. I'm not sure what the story will be like, but as long as it's fun to play, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. 



Ultimax is looking particularly great! I'm happy to see all the other characters from Persona 3 joining in, and I can't wait to try out Ken, Koromaru, Junpei, and the others to see how they play. I'm especially excited about the Ken/Koro combo. Everyone seems to hate Ken for some reason, but I thought he was pretty cool. He was in my party quite frequently in Persona 3. And Koromaru is obviously awesome. Maybe I'll finally replace Teddie as my main fighter!

Interestingly, they haven't really given us any more information about Persona 5. I'm actually kind of OK with this, as long as they're still working on the game. Out of all the Persona games they announced, Persona 5 is the one I'd prefer to go into blind. I went into both 3 and 4 blind, and I'm really glad I made that choice!

Another game I'm really looking forward to is Subnautica, an underwater exploration game that the Dtoid staff has been writing about a lot. It's from the team that did Natural Selection, a series which I've never played, but I heard it got great reviews and it looks lovely. Subnautica looks like it's heading into my dream game category, taking cues from games like Aquaria and Endless Ocean. So far, we've really only seen concept art and heard about the team's ideas behind the game. I'd like to see some gameplay before I get TOO excited, but the concept art does look phenomenal! 


Giant eel creatures? Hell yes!

There's plenty of other games that should be coming out soon as well, including Valiant Hearts, the Binding of Isaac Rebirth, possibly Mewgenics. And maybe we'll get to hear more about this Project Beast game that From Software is working on? I'm not sure I'm quite ready for another Souls game so soon after Dark Souls 2, but I'm sure it will be exciting, whatever it is!

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
