Honourable Mentions

Of course that was just a selection of the RPGs due out next year. A few other staff members were able to offer up their interest in titles that weren't quite able to sneak into the draft, and you can find a summary of other honourable mentions that are expected to arrive in the remainder of this year below. We hope you all enjoy whichever of the upcoming titles you get to play.

Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity (PC)
Pub: Obsidian Entertainment | Dev: Obsidian Entertainment | Release: 2014

Obsidian has tossed out games such as Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment as inspirations for Kickstarted RPG Pillars of Eternity, the fantasy counterpart to Wasteland 2 as we are treated to some old-school epic RPG goodness in the second half of the year. Pillars of Eternity boasts six races and eleven classes to choose from, and promises to have an engaging story and world to explore. The game footage shown off at E3 looks promising and displays strategic combat as well as a modernized look of the overhead isometric RPG. Obsidian looks to be really catering to their audience and fans of the developer and the above-mentioned classic PC RPGs should all be paying attention to Pillars of Eternity. - Johnathan Stringer

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (Vita)
Pub: NIS America | Dev: Nippon Ichi | Release: 08.12.2014 (NA), 08.29.2014 (EU)

Disgaea 4 is one of the finest entries in the series, and certainly one of the best RPGs on PS3. So the ability to have its massive amount of content, along with all released DLC, on the Vita wherever you go should have any fan of strategy RPGs excited. The fun story and updated graphics are right at home on the Vita. - Mike "Wheels" Apps

Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 (PC, Mac, Linux)
Pub: inXile Entertainment | Dev: inXile Entertainment | Release: 08.2014

I love games that give me the opportunity to play and interact with the world on my own terms and that kind of player reactivity is Brian Fargo and his team's mantra. So much so that inXile claims that it is almost impossible for two people to have the same experience playing through this massive RPG. It should be a lot of fun checking out Wasteland 2's version of post-apocalyptic Los Angeles and Arizona. The best part is, because it's going to be on Windows, Mac, and Linux, just about everyone will be able to check it out, regardless of whether they have a beefy gaming rig or a recent Macbook Air. Not to mention that the 50+ hour estimated length and high replay value should keep everyone busy in the wastes for a while. - Emanuel Merino
