What games come out this Fall?

This year continues to be a great year of games. I’ve put together a little list of my most anticipated games coming out Fall 2016 for you to get hyped about.


Overcooked (Already Out) (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

[su_youtube url=”https://youtu.be/J39h5o-m1EI” width=”700″]

A fun little couch-coop cooking game where you work as a team to serve up orders before your customers leave. The settings are crazy and ridiculous which makes for lots of laughs.

No Man’s Sky (August ‘X’) (PS4, PC)

No Man's Sky Release Date

Who knows if this one will be delayed yet again. I think we’ve had two delays within the 2 weeks ’til launch window. Despite its shaky timing, I think NMS will be a fun game to hop in and explore a galaxy. This will be a great ‘sit back and chill’ game.

WoW Legion (8/30) (PC)

Not much else needs to be said here. Legion is shaping up already to be the best expansion since WotLK. I’m ready to jump in and have several months (at least) of a MMO to play with friends.


Dragon Quest VII (9/16) (3DS)

Dragon Quest VII

I’m anticipating this to be a great RPG. I’ve never played the Dragon Quest series, but I hope this is a fun place to start.

Yo-kai Watch 2 (9/30) (3DS)

Yo-kai Watch 2 release date

Graev speaks very highly of the 3DS version of the original, and I really liked the iPhone version. This is on my list of games to check out.


Dragon Quest Builders (10/11) (PS4)

My hype is high for this one. I just can’t help myself when it comes to builders.

Battlefield 1 (10/21) (Ps4, Xbox One, PC) 

Now that Battlefield is returning to its roots and getting away from the super-tech of modern warfare, I’m interested again.

Civilization VI (10/21) (PC)

This is on my list because it looks fun enough. I’m not sure if it’ll be an immediate buy, but probably one I make before Xmas.


Dishonored 2 (11/11) (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

I really enjoyed the first Dishonored, so this doesn’t take much selling for me. This falls within the window where I may put this on my Xmas list.

Pokemon Sun/Moon (11/18) (3DS)

Pokemon Sun and Moon Release Date

We get to ride Pokemon. Need I say more? Oh, and it’s Pokemon.


Dead Rising 4 (12/6 – yes, that’s still Fall) (Xbox One, PC)

Graev and I have had a lot of fun plowing through zombie bodies in shopping malls. Dead Rising 1 and 2 were great.  I skipped 3 but Graev enjoyed it enough. These have become so zany and out-of-control stupid, but jumping the shark (literally) is still enjoyable. I’d never play alone, so if Graev gets it with me we’ll play.

So those are my most anticipated games for Fall of 2016. Any I missed that are on YOUR list?

  • Please let NMS be good. Please let NMS be good. Please let NMS be good. (Can you tell that I think it will either be GOTY quality or the next Black & White or SPORE?

  • I really want to play pre-xpac patch but that 20GB download is going to kill my Data Cap. Out of 50GB I only have 9 left at the moment until the 15th so maybe I will have a chance to try it out prior the the full launch.

  • Didn’t recent legislation do away with data caps? And who are you with? I know ATT had data caps for years but never did anything about them. Many other providers are the same way.

    I too have high hopes for NMS.

  • Still have data caps here.. but i have 350 gig cap.

    As far as upcoming games.. you forgot one Keen.. Albion Online is launching this fall!

  • Not a fan of Deus Ex?

    I will probably give NMS a run but the only thing I am really excited for is Deus Ex… just love that series so much.

  • @Bartillo: Is it really launching this fall? That’s good news! 🙂

    @Nukethesitefromorbit: I played the first. It was pretty good. Not on the top on my list, but definitely one I’d pick up on a sale.

  • Well it should be.. its in the Final Beta now.. so after final beta will be launch.

  • My DSL was just a step up from dial-up, and when I say a step up, it was only a step because I didn’t have to do &M0 to turn sound off like you with modems. Though I do miss the old Hayes commands, lol. At any rate the 50GB account shared among three people is rough.

  • For the first time in my life I’m looking forward to a Final Fantasy release. I was never a big turn based guy so the series really hasn’t interested me much until recently. The combination of action combat and more emphasis on an open world has me pretty excited to give it a go.

  • Michael Whitt,

    I was just making the comparison with Black and White and Spore today while discussing NMS with a coworker. I bit on B&W but held out on Spore and was glad I did- definitely going to have to see some reviews in order to bite on NMS.

  • Whoa… what do you have against Black and White @Michael Whitt? That game was great!

    As far as NMS… lol. That game is going to disappoint so many people. It will be legendary in its Bleh factor.

    You only need to ask yourself EXACTLY one question to determine if NMS will be good. Would I like to explore the entire universe completely alone?

    The answer should be fundlebunking no for any sane being. Of course you don’t. You want to explore it with your FRIEND/S. But they don’t have that. Such a shame. Why Coop is so overlooked in exploration/survival games is beyond me.

  • It does make you wonder where Camelot Unchained is. I almost gave them over $1k a few years ago. Almost being the operative word here and…whew. Dodged that one.

  • @Bartillo: Hyped? No, but if Graev gets it I would happily borrow it. 🙂

    @Sanz: I’m betting August 2017 for Camelot Unchained. Fingers crossed!

    @Yotor: I think you missed the line that said Civ XI. 😉
