Better Late than Never…
You may think it odd this list is coming almost five months into the 2021. Aren’t these usually dropped back in January; February at the latest. I’ll be honest, you are correct. Even I admit that dropping this now is a bit odd, but 2020 kicked my butt. I completely fell out of gaming news and just wasn’t paying attention to what was coming out because I wasn’t sure when I’d be able to get back to a table with some friends and play games; any games. Didn’t have to be new, at this point Monopoly is looking good. sigh
However, I’m one shot down, a second coming in a little over a week, and I’ve been looking at the upcoming games. Now that a time when I can play with friends is in my future, I’m more excited to see what’s coming.
I tried to be careful with this list and only pick games that are coming out. Some of the games that would have been on my list if I’d done this back in January have already hit shelves; Sleeping Gods, Bloodborne, and Adventure Tactics: Domianne’s Tower for example. I also wanted to try and include games that are coming out this year. This means things like ISS Vanguard and Darkest Dungeon aren’t on here even though they are announced for this year. They’re still releasing close enough to the end that I’m not sold on them coming out just yet. I hope I’m wrong, but I’ll err on the side of caution for this. Then there are the bits I’m too close to tell on. Things like the next chapter of Middara which is in the process of coming out and could be hitting shelves as I write this.
With all of that out of the way, let’s grab a look at what’s coming. I think…
Oathsworn: Into the Deepwoods
Oath: Chronicles of Empire & Exile
Return to Dark tower
The Adventures of Robin Hood
Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game
Roll Player Adventures
Descent: Legends of the Dark
One Last Hopeful Thought
I’ve had my first shot, my second one is a week away, two weeks of waiting, and I’m able to venture out in public again. I’m hoping we’ll all be there and things can start returning to a more social experience. I want to go to at least one convention this year and I hope I get to see all of you there when I do.
Since you’ve heard my list, what are some games you’re looking forward to seeing? Honestly, I want to know. I’ve been checked out of the new games for so long I’m certain I missed some and want to hear what you all have to say.
Until next time, stay safe and be well.
