I'm interested in Mortal Kombat 11 and Days Gone but not sure if I will get them. I still have a backlog that I want to get through. How about you, SW? What April games are you most looking forward to?

Well, I do have Mortal Kombat 11 on my Steam wishlist, for some reason. Dunno if I'm actually going to buy it, though.

April's GWG will do it for me. Good stuff. :P

Never thought i'd be excited for a Power Ranger game.

These are my top 3 games I'm totally hype for: (basically in this order)

  1. Mortal Kombat 11 PC version. (everything I seen so far, this is my most hype game for an April 2019 and I just love MK series! I'm considering making a hype thread)
  2. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid PC version. (I was a huge fan of the early days of Saban's Power Ranger up to Power Rangers in Space. Seeing the Green Ranger again in this game woke up my childhood in me buying this)
  3. Days Gone PS4 exclusive. (because it's Sons of Anarchy meets The Walking Dead and you all know I love Zombie games so yeah, it's the least hype game for a Sony game but nevertheless, I'm looking forward to playing Days Gone day one)

The question you should ask yourself is, do you enjoy playing fighting games? If the answer is no, then remove MK11 from your Steam wishlist ASAP! Word of advice, if you aren't hype to play MK11 day one, I suggest you wait for GOTY Edition cause I can tell you now Ed Boon loves milking DLC in his fighting games, better to wait for GOTY with all DLC fighters in one package.

Days gone interests me most just to see how it turns out.

I have 307 hours on Injustice 2, and am currently playing SoulCalibur VI from time to time when I'm not grinding for the latest and greatest stuff on Warframe. Does that answer your question?

But yeah, I'll probably wait for the inevitable GOTY edition.

Wow, had no idea Super Meat Boy Forever was a thing, that for sure at very least.

Might not get much more for now, need to work on games I got last few weeks. Still tying up some Metro Exodus achievents, dabbling in Anthem off and on, mostly done with RE2 for now (...maybe), barely touched DMC5 and haven't even touched Division 2 yet.

I would though like to play the new Mortal Kombat, some of the Final Fantasy re-releases (when discounted), and Days Gone (once I play catch-up with my PS4 backlog). I still have Ace Attorney games for DS/3DS so no need to get those for now.

MK11 and Days Gone have my attention but will wait. MK for a Komplete Edition and Days Gone till I have caught up on my backlog.

From that list, World War Z and Days Gone,

Anno is already paid for.

I'm also looking forward to Days Gone, Meat Boy and MK11.

Days gone is a must for me, I’ve been waiting with a bowl full of hype for this since I first seen it. Gotta love those zombies man. One day someone will make the perfect zombie game.

Phoenix Wright is also a must have for me. I love that series to pieces... this may be the 3rd or 4th time I purchased these games. I already digitally pre ordered this one.

Also might snatch up World War Z and Zanki Zero. Zanki just cause it seems so damn odd. I’m hoping the story is at least interesting.

I suppose the Ace Attorney trilogy, even though I already own and have beaten these games before.

I don't care for anything on that list. I'm still only 50% through RDR2 anyway and maybe I'll finally start Spider-Man this month.

Days Gone, World War Z, MK11 and FFXII for me!

Days gone. It looks like a solid game. Reminds me of the original TLOU with added features. The latest preview last Monday made me even more hyped. I'm expecting an 8 but wouldn't be surprised if it got a 9 or close to it on meta.

Not sure yet... I'm keen to try Phoenix Wright but. So that'd be the main one.

@Archangel3371:

I didn’t realize the Xbox had not got the 10 and 12 remasters. If you haven’t had a chance to play the remasters yet I can wholehearted recommend them!

The remaster of 10 looks and plays great, and 12 is my personal favorite Final Fantasy, your in for a real treat!

@evilross: Yeah I really enjoyed those games when they first came out on the PS2. I do have the Final Fantasy X/X-2 remaster for the PS3 but I don’t mind picking them up again for the Xbox One and playing through them yet again.

Shovel Knight Showdown
Cuphead for Switch
MK11
Super Meat Boy Forever

Those have my attention. I had no idea about the existence of Shovel Knight Showdown before looking at TC's list. Not sure if I'm getting any of these games, though.

There is nothing that interest me this month. Maybe Days Gone, but even that looks not very good. I'll wait for the rewiews and lets play(s) to decide.

May give Cuphead another shot, idk.

Depends on if I feel like playing anything next month.

Definitely MK11. But I'll wait for opinion from other players and reviews before actually buying it. :)
