Cyber Shadow for me please, thanks.

Game looks amazing both in graphics and gameplay, and it´s the kind of game that fits the Switch like a glove.

I was happy to get this until I found out the combat is still ATB- like rather than turn based. Why does Gust hate turn based games now?

I myself fan of turn based combat but have no problem with Ryza's combat system. Ryza itself is very much departure from rest of Atelier series, so I guess they want it to have different combat system as well.

I'll check out The Medium because of Gamepass but I can't say I'm terribly excited about it given the relationship I have with the developers previous games. Cyber Shadow looks neat I'll wait for impressions.

Cyber Shadow is also on Game Pass by the way, gonna be another month where it will easily pay for itself.

The Medium is the only game that looks appealing to me and also maybe Hitman 3.

Nothing for me until Outriders on February 2nd which is thus far, the only game I have any interest in that has a release date. I'm expecting the first quarter and possibly the first half of 2021 to be empty for me.

Horrible list, missing Ryza which is better than anything listed. Its Gameranx so shit as expected.

Just Hitman 3 for me which is fine because I still have Valhalla, Immortals and DMC V SE to finish.

Not big on indie scene but that ninja game looks incredible.

Will likely check out the Medium at some point via Gamepass. Plan on having a Gamepass heavy year as there’s not a lot of new releases we know of that interest me and need to be a tad more frugal after upgrading the TV and getting both new consoles and having some five-figure home repairs coming up.

I don't expect the new release sitiaruoon to improve as first uear of new consoles tends to be pretty slow and likely more so with Covid-related delays In development. Fine by me as there’s plenty on Gamepass, PSc. Epic freebies I’ve added ro my account etc to keep me busy for cheap for a long while.

I only care about Hitman 3 in January because of Medium not being a cross gen game.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Ryza 2 for me also, I'll give The Medium a playthrough on Gamepass. Nothing else really looks that interesting.

Next month I've got Ys IX and Bravely Default II to contend with. Getting ready to be drowning in RPGs.
