    I am actually more excited for Spyro than I was for RDR2.

    I will download the Tomb Raider DLC, too.

    I will also get Battlefield V, but I'm not sure which version yet, so I don't know if it'll be this week or next.

    I *think* I got the season pass for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but I am not going to reinstall for it.
    I pre-ordered Fallout 76, but have very close to no interest in it after playing the Beta.
    I am curious about the relaunch of Hellgate: London - but not curious enough to buy it.
    I am more interested in Hitman 2, but I can wait for a sale.

    Wait...Hellgate London? Is this the same awful, buggy, completely unfinished mess released a decade ago that we were all so disappointed with?

    I loved Spyro, but will probably wait for a price drop or three. As the Crash remasters proved, not all of my favorites from that era have aged gracefully.

    Same game essentially, but it's been updated with the Hellgate: Tokyo content and other fixes and enhancements from the Asian version apparently. And I think it might be single player only?

    So not exactly a remaster but a relaunching, which might be good if all those bugs are fixed and things are smoothed out to reach some of its original potential.

    And despite telling myself there was no reason to, I ended up buying Hitman 2 because GMG has a 30% off coupon. :anguished:

    I have the Surviving Mars DLC pass, so I guess I'm getting that new content this week.

    Very curious to see how Underworld Ascendant turned out, but I'll be waiting on reviews and impressions.

    Crusader Kings II: Holy Fury Expansion and Surviving Mars: Space Race DLC, maybe.

    I backed Underworld Ascendant so there's that. And been talking about The Forge with a friend who played TR so we may go in on that. And definitely waiting on Hitman 2 until much later as I still haven't played the first one. :/

    Ooh, I forgot about Underworld Ascendant. I'm going to wait and see how the console versions come out, though.

    Ha! I actually loved it, warts and all. As far as I can remember it's still the closest thing to a 3D version of Diablo that we've ever had. I have no idea what this re-release is, but for sure I will try it out.

    Oops, one more for your list. Galactic Civilizations III - Heroes of Star Control: Origins DLC has been released. Adds:
    Major Factions

    Tywom - Hello, best friends! These yellow slug-like aliens would like a hug. They’re slimy, and you don’t want to give them one, but still - it’s all they really want. The Tywom want to be friends with everyone, which makes them great diplomats, and their constant desire for approval gives them a bonus for any other factions who happen to love them.

    Mowlings - All hail the mighty Jeff! The Mowlings are small, bear-like creatures who worship a mysterious deity they call Jeff. Frankly, they’re a little lost without him, so they spend their time finding new ways to worship him. The Mowlings get a special Temple of Jeff improvement (one per planet) that grants bonuses to influence and approval, and in return Jeff orbits their planets protectively.

    Mu’Kay - Greetings, federation member! Founders of the Federation for Allied Species, the Mu’Kay are intelligent cephalopods who live entirely in aquatic environments. Their natural intelligence makes them excellent researchers, and their polite (if occasionally condescending) manner lends itself well to diplomacy. Unless you’re a fish. Then prepare to be eaten.

    Free Trandals - Cast off the shackles! The Free Trandals are the escaped faction of a race that has been enslaved by a malevolent AI known only as Overmind, who uses their bodies to advance its own nefarious purposes. Now, the Free Trandals work to free their brethren and rebuild their lost culture with what little they have left. Possessing a surprising capability (and healthy paranoia) for advanced technology, the Free Trandals are far from helpless both on and off the battlefield. Their warrior instincts may be long buried, but their ships, while few in number, are enormously effective against silicon and synthetic based life forms.

    Features

    - 4 new major factions with unique leaders, ship designs, music, and traits
    - Dozens of new ship parts inspired by Star Control: Origins for building and modifying your own ships
    - Several new music tracks from Star Control: Origins
    - New faction traits: Needy, Divine Guardian, Unshackled, Federation
    - New ship designs, colors, and styles

    I have been excited for Underworld Ascendant, but I watched some videos of the beta yesterday and it looked pretty rough. I will definitely be looking for impressions before buying. I am also annoyed there is still no pricing information on Steam.

    I got Crusader Kings II: Holy Fury Expansion since it was on sale on Green Man Gaming. Between it and the new free 3.0 update, there's some very cool stuff there.

    Wow, so I received Fallout 76 and had completely forgotten I'd ordered it or that it was coming this week. Was there no interest at all here? yikes!!!

    All of the interest is over at OO, it would seem.
