EpicBattleCry - Are Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Origins, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor & More too much of a good thing?

On today's EpicBattleCry we field a question from Aaron (@_Aaron_17) about the embarrassment of riches that will be October's gaming release calendar. Are there TOO MANY good games coming out in one time frame? We discuss exactly how much this ROCKtober will Rock on today's edition of gaming's most brutal video podcast!

It's 5 now that Dragon Age has been pushed to November and let's face it Project Spark doesn't count. :)

I will say that this is a good thing for the gamers and not really for the companies. You can pick you two most anticipated games and when you are done with those the others will be half price and Steam holiday sales will be knocking.

I think The Witcher 3 in Feburary land perfectly after both rocktober and the holiday (sales) are over.

It's my day.  :D

These AAA games are different enough not to be each others competition. And i think they will all sell well. LL. Facepaw.

Definitely not too many games coming out... Being an RPG fan, I for one am only interested in Dragon Age.  The other games coming out, quite possibly would pick up as pre-owned later on.

If current figures are anything to go by, people are very willing right now to spend money on games and I think having a plethora of titles to play is perfect.

I am happy all those "AAA" titles are coming out at the same time.  I agree, that they're different enough. However, because money will be tight for a lot of people I can see a lot of different retailers offering various deals, especially on the PC.  Heck I've seen price drops on DAI and SoM.

I'm in the weird position that I really want to play Destiny. I also would really like to play it on PC. IF I should get a PS4 with Destiny, I probably won't get another game till the Witcher 3.

I'm playing Destiny on PS3 for sure, the graphical fidelity and higher res on PS4 isn't enough for me to invest in a new console... And honestly, if they had made it exclusive for next-gen/current-gen consoles, it probably would have been a system seller for me. Been playing the Beta, I think it's a good game. It's just enough Mass Effect-meets-Halo (slightly grindy, but that's to be expected, they certainly aren't fooling anyone, it's definitely an MMO) that I probably won't even buy Dragon Age until it's cheap as a pre-owned game because Destiny will be sucking up so much of my gaming time.

Still hurts my feelings that Dragon Age Inquisition got delayed.. But I hope something productive comes out of it. But yes so many games are coming out the same day.. Can't be that smart to do so.. Spread 'em I say.. --The games! Games..

Comment by Trichoplax on July 25, 2014 at 3:43am

Why Daniel, why did you praise Alien Isolation!! I had so much hope for the game...now after your praise of doom (remember Alien Colonial Marines) we can be happy if it will be mediocre. On the good side you are critical about the Oculus so I expect it to be a great success!

Thanks by the way for still delivering EBC! I was a bit afraid that the new format will fail as the first episodes while interesting were rather short. Now with a span of 10 to 20 minutes, interesting questions, and your passion (as always) I think you have nailed it really well. Many thanks!

My life as a Sim (part 3)

So many things have happened since our last talk. I don't even know where to start. Well, maybe i should start with the good news...

Me and Maaike are expecting a baby. Remco Jr. is going to have a little brother or sister. I think it will motivate him to do better a little bit. He hasn't been doing too well at school. We try to stimulate him as much as possible. Help him with his homework, teach him about music.. you know. It's not that he's failing but he's no Einstein that's for…
