November is going to make your wallet cry

I had a love-hate relationship with October this year. It was set to be an awesome month for games, but there were simply far too many scheduled for release so close to each other. Now it seems October isn’t too bad. It’s November that we have to worry about.

Yes, there are still a whole bunch of awesome games coming in October including Shadow of Mordor, Alien Isolation, The Evil Within, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Sunset Overdrive, Super Smash Brothers and the Definitive Edition for Sleeping Dogs. That’s definitely nothing to sneeze at. However, November is really after your money. Just check out these releases.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  • Skylanders Trap Team
  • The Crew
  • PES 2015
  • Assassin’s Creed Unity
  • Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
  • Far Cry 4
  • GTA V (new generation)
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Little Big Planet 3
  • Project Cars
  • WWE 2k15
  • Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby
  • Farming Simulator 15

Maybe it’s just because we have so many awesome games this year, but it feels like the season is just chock full of things to make my wallet cry. However, with the movement of some games out of October and into November and even next year February, I’m hoping that this is a sign of a shift in gaming’s calendar. Perhaps it made sense for most games to be released leading up to the holiday season in the past – the majority of gamers were kids who had to wait until the holidays to get games as presents. However, now most gamers are adults who can shop for their games at any time of year. I hope that we see more games released throughout the year instead of all grouping in the September-December window; it will mean more attention for them and less heartache for those who want to play all the things.

What looks appealing to you in the major launch window? Are you glad all the games are grouped together like this, or do you also wish they’d spread the love a bit more?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Nope nope nope NOT getting anything until I at least finish 10 things off ye olde backlog!

    • Milesh Bhana

    • Lothy

      • Admiral Chief 0

        Aye dude, SO MUCH TO DO BEFORE THAT IMPENDING SALE!!!

  • Rock789

    Yes… That does make my wallet cry. 🙁

    You also forgot Forza Horizon in October and Halo Masterchief Edition in November… It all adds up to a spicy meatball of a few months!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Far Cry 4 is the only one I really want out of all of those right now.

    • Speed_Racer

      Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
      Assassin’s Creed Unity
      Far Cry 4

      not in this order lol

      • Guest

        Who still buys Call of Dogshit?
        Nobody over 12 years old can take that series seriously any more.

  • HvR

    Who is joining me for the midnight launch of Farming Simulator 15?

    • Sageville

      Ag demmit man!

      I still need to finish Farming Simulator 1 through 14!

      • HvR

        The John Deer DLC in 13 is a must.

    • Anon A Mouse

      I’ll be there with my khakis on.

    • TheBrain

    • justerthought

      Does it include smellovision cow crap?

  • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

    * waiting for sale intensifies *

  • Jonah Cash

    Easy: Shadow of Mordor and then GTA V for the first time…. Will be more than enough game time in those two titles alone!!

  • Sageville

    I’ll pick up CoD and maybe DA:I otherwise I’ll wait for reviews….

    All these driving games…. much of the same-ol-same-ol?

  • BacchusZA

    Luckily for me, it’s only Borderlands & Dragon Age: Inquisition there that really grab my interest, and they have to compete with the new round of the Elite: Dangerous Beta that goes live at the end of this month, so I probably won’t get them at release anyway.

  • Hammersteyn

    My wallet is fine, because I don’t buy most of that crap.

    • Brady miaau

      I looked at the list and was not impressed.

      DA:I and I will be happy.

    • Johan du Preez

      +1 and here I thought it was the steam sale.

  • Ottokie

    And im just siting here waiting for Warlords of Draenor – 13th November 😛

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    The only 2 games that have me interested are Dragon Age and Pokemon

  • Ryanza

    I don’t see The Witcher 3 on that list. So meh.

    Don’t support DRM.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Only ones I’m mildly interested in are.. Borderlands Presequel, LittleBigPlanet 3 and FarCry 4. The rest I’ll get when they hit the bargain bin.

  • Jedi Consular Kromas

    All I see is Dragon Age (paid for ages ago) and Far Cry… maybe (still mad at Ubisoft for WatchDogs)

  • Jackie

    Bwhahaha dont care if my backlog is higher than Zuma’s electric bill. The day of dragon age is upon is, allready danger taped a piece of Bt Games window, that i can stare through inappropriately for the next few weeks!!!!

  • justerthought

    GTAV remaster, Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity are the standout games that will really rock on PS4 and push the tech to the max. Open world games are the future of gaming and I’m big fan, so my wallet is smiling 🙂

    All we need now is a remaster of the mighty Skyrim if Bethesda ever get their finger out and stop giving us lame MMO subscription scams.

  • Bane Hardy

    I don’t believe November won’t make my wallet burst in tears. Out of that entire list of games I only have only one game on pre-order and that’s Farcry 4.

  • Wyzak

    AC unity and pokemon are the only items that I’m interested in, so not that bad 😀 Will probably wait for a special though.

  • Hyped for 2.. Gta 5 and Far cry 4 among 15…

  • Werner Boshoff

    The Iron horde is coming. Epic Nov release!

    How dare you not list it?
