A thread for anticipating games that might not rise to the level of getting their own threads.
For instance, this quasi Name of the Rose RPG: https://www.polygon.com/23319825/obsidian-pentiment-preview-xbox-game-pass-pc

Pentiment looks interesting. I'll play it on Gamepass for sure.
I think some of the best releases will just be good existing stuff moving to new platforms, like Tunic and Inscryption on Playstation, or Dorfromantik on Switch.
I'll probably give Gotham Knights a spin unless the reviews are brutal.

Reviews for Pentiment seem pretty well recieved.

I've never played The Witcher 3. There is a free PS5 update upgrade coming in a couple of weeks, I think I'm all in.

Don't get your hopes up like I did. It's not groundbreaking so much as piles and piles of convention.

My hopes are still up!But my backlog is so bad, I actually have both The Witcher I and II to play first... I need a better PC setup

Huh. People do seem to love it. Helpfully, I typically have low expectations, since because I missed out on basically an entire couple of generations of games, they're all pretty cool to me.

They do love it but I think they're all wrong.
But seriously, take this to the Witcher thread, this is a rolling anticipation thread for smaller niche/indie games!

my most wanted at the moment:Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley - loved the Moomins books as a kid, so a gentle puzzle adventure where you get to roam around as Snufkin tootling on his flute is like my dream gamehttps://store.steampowered.com/app/1808680/Snufkin_Melody_of_Moominvalley/World of Horror - a "1-bit love letter to Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft". been following this for a while, but have held off until it's out of early access next summer.https://store.steampowered.com/app/913740/WORLD_OF_HORROR/Future Radio and the Artificial Pigeons - Visual Novel coming out early next year, I just love the "blue sky dystopia" sci-fi stuff that Japan makeshttps://store.steampowered.com/app/2156620/The_Future_Radio_and_the_Artificial_Pigeons/

I still eagerly await Truck Heck, whatever the hell it turns out to be.
