Spotlight Sunday - Week 46 - 2015

Spotlight Sunday is a way for Choicest Games to feature PC games that are scheduled for release on the following week - games that we consider worthwhile checking out.

This week (9th November to the 15th November 2015) there's a dip in the number of games that interest me and there's only two that feature this week. However, both of these games are AAA titles with one of them probably being one of the most anticipated for 2015. For this week, the two games I think are worth checking out are:

Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void

Starcraft II doesn't seem to rate that much fanfare nowadays especially considering that many people have moved away from Real-Time Strategy games and onto MOBAs. Even Blizzard has got in on the action with Heroes of the Storm, which has probably cannibalised a lot of their playerbase. However, since I never really got into the multiplayer aspect of Starcraft II (which most players do), I'm actually looking forward to the conclusion of the Starcraft II story arc with Legacy of the Void. As it was with the original Starcraft, the Zerg campaign tends to be the weakest with the better stories coming from the Terran and Protoss campaigns (it's not that hard considering most Zerg don't have free will and hence no personality). So I'm hoping it's going to be more of the same with Legacy of the Void; let's end the story with a bang.

Fallout 4

  • Release Date: 10/11/2015
  • Availability: EB - $89.95, Steam - $79.95 USD
From what I've been hearing across the interwebs, this is one of the most anticipated games of this year if not the most anticipated, despite the game being just another Fallout game (but I guess that's what everybody wants). Set in Boston, Massachusetts this time, you get to do all the stuff you did in Fallout 3 but in a different locale! Explore an open world, visit multiple locations, meet multiple characters, do multiple quests, collect multiple items and craft multiple things! Yeah!

So are you interested or excited about any PC games being released next week? Which games are you looking forward to?
