The office is buzzing about the 2016 games lineup!  I thought it would be fun to see what games
your favorite Social Media Specialists are most anticipating in 2016.  




"MLB: The Show 16"


MLB The Show 16




"Catan: The Big Game Event Kit




"Final Fantasy VII: Remake




“While I don’t actually play anymore, I’m very intrigued and excited to see what World of Warcraft: Legion brings to the game.  Warlords of Draenor really seemed to rejuvenate the community and if they are able to add more stuff like that, we could see a resurgence of the game.  It might actually be enough for me to re-subscribe!”


World of Warcraft Legion




"Bloodborne was my Game of the Year 2015 and I can’t wait to see what Dark Souls 3 brings to the table!”


Dark Souls III 




“I'm probably most excited for Hitman at this point.  Also, CS:GO eSPORTS!”






"Mirrors Edge: Catalyst

"I’m really excited for the full Final Fantasy VII HD Remake on PlayStation 4. It’s a game that’s often regarded as one of, if not the best RPG ever created and while I’ve played the game multiple times in the past, I’m pretty sure I’ve never beaten it. I think this new released would be the perfect time to dive back in and finally see it through!”

"I’m excited to see the release of Nintendo’s first smartphone game, Miitomo. I’m from the Super Nintendo era, and love Mario and the crew, so I’m hoping for Mario games on our smartphones at some point."

"Tom Clancy’s The Division".

“The only game I would buy…Madden 17!”




Legion expansion for World Of Warcraft.




“No Dragon Age, no Elder Scrolls, no Diablo, no Stronghold, and the latest version of Overlord was REALLY disappointing… If I needed to pick one game, I guess Cuphead?  I’m mostly excited for the early animation references that I am expecting it to have.  I believe it was a highlighted game by Microsoft during E3, so it should be easy to find lots of info out there about it.




"Mortal Kombat XL – Always been a favorite since I was a little girl. Smiley Happy"

“I’m going to say Minecraft Pocket Edition (for mobile) because my 10 year old daughter would probably enjoy it if only I would let her use my phone ;-) she loves Minecraft…”




"Tom Clancys The Division!”




"Uncharted 4 Incredible franchise! It’ll be so fun that it’ll be off the CHARTS! (see what I did there?)"  


Uncharted 4 A Thiefs End




"Blokus Classic Game.  Yes, I love this game, girls got it on Three Kings Day. They love to pass the time, it also nice that it doesn’t have lots of rules and no cards to turn. I just really like it.”




"I am excited for Tom Clancy’s The Division! The gameplay looks very cool and It seem like a fun game to play with a bunch of friends. Also, I am hoping that Zelda Wii U comes out before the end of the year!"




“Apparently Mass Effect is the most anticipated game of 2016. (for my son) because it's a 3rd person RPG shooter with a rich universe filled with interesting characters and lore. It's sci-fi, so there's aliens and whatnot. Also, there's 6 different classes that you can play as, and there's a morality system that determines how your character reacts to dialogue and situations, and your choices are reflected in the game and with character interactions.  Oh and its ALIENS AND GUNS AND SPACE… AND ALIENS AND SPACE!!  (His words exactly, lol)."




"Game of Thrones (More the television show than the game)"




"Disney Infinity 4.0 (not announced yet and even though I have yet to play 2.0 or 3.0 that I have lol).  Disney Magic Kingdoms (mobile game announced at D23 Expo in August 2015)”




"Xcom 2 – PC – 2/5/16


Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak – PC – 1/20/16


Star Citizen – PC – TBA 2016”






"Okay, XBO exclusive Quantum Break (Releases April 5).  Great cast of actors brought together to drive the story that is driving the action."

“Honestly, I couldn’t tell you a single game that I know is being released this year, much less one I’m “anticipating most”. Got any Pokemon games being released? Lol”




“Ummmmm, I have no Idea what comes out this year…. Let me guess NBA 2K17… Or Mobile Strike!




"The Division is the only big one I care about that I can think of."




"Far Cry Primal: The Far Cry series has always been a blast, from Far Cry 2’s super immersive realism to Far Cry 4’s elephant and buzzard mayhem. I’m excited to see a new twist with primal weapons and more ridable animals."


Far Cry Primal
