What games are you most looking forward to in 2016?


#21

Oh, no doubt. I’m sure they could do very well just on Steam alone.


#22

I’m hoping XCOM 2 isn’t terrible.


#23

Doom looks great! Shadow Warrior 2 too.

Would be playing Bombshell right now if my hardware situation was in order.


#24

Looks like Doom has got a release date, 13th May. :+1:


#26

I need to add a couple to my list…

Quantum Break - Remedy’s new game. From Max Payne through Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, they have never disappointed. Can. Not. Wait.
Tom Clancy’s The Division - The beta sold me on this one. Looking forward to the Open Beta coming up at the end of this week.

And by the way, maybe is a nostalgic thing but usually I think the older box arts for games or music were more badass:


#29

I’m not a big fan of the new Doom’s boxart…
But, I’m getting this version…

That case cover… I like a LOT better.


#30

The problem I had with old box art was that it was way cooler than the game ever turned out to be.


#31

You think that’s bad, try living in the age of the Atari 2600. :slight_smile:


#32

Like this beauty? :smile:


#33

The Revenant statue is pretty cool, apparently it has an led in the base with a slow moving turbine.


#34

Yeah.
I think it’ll look pretty badass on my shelf. :slight_smile:


#35

Indeed that box cover is much better!


#37

There will be a reversible cover for the standard edition, there is a poll on Doom twitter (it’s closing soon) for two designs. Cover B is leading by a long shot.

Cover A

Cover B


#38

I actually prefer A.
B is a remake of the original Doom’s boxart, and why that’s… nice… I’ve got that box. And that shareware box.

There’s something about the simple design of A that I really love.


#39

I think A would suit the cover of the collectors steelbook but B suits the game more.

If Doom was a slow paced, survival horror more akin to Doom 3 then A would suit it just fine but considering this is more like the original Doom, i think B fits in nicely.


#40

I’m getting the Collector’s Edition steel book, so… either way doesn’t really matter.
I just personally like A’s art style more.

B grabbed everyone because it’s a remake of the original. It got the whole nostalgia flowing for people.
But for me, it just stands out as not being that creative. It’s a retread of familiar ground.


#41

DOOM
Battleborn
Deus Ex. Mankind Divided
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Shadow Warrior 2


#42

That was one of the better 2600 games, actually. The fans these days have come up with a good homebrew vrersion of that. Check this out:
