When she’s not writing or gaming, she’s looking for the next great visual novel in the vein of Saya no Uta. Like a fabulous shooter once said, get psyched!

Resident Evil 2

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

We’re less than a month out and I can’t wait to get my hands on this eerie new vision of Raccoon City. Ever since I first tried it at PAX West 2018 I was enamored with the game’s gorgeous new coat of paint and loving attention to classic characters’ and locations’ details. This is going to be one amazing nostalgia trip.

Bayonetta 3

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

True, there’s no guarantee we’ll be seeing more of the Umbra Witch herself in 2019, but wishful thinking, right? Ever since Bayonetta 2’s credits rolled I’ve been patiently waiting for more of one of my favorite action franchises and my favorite female game character in years. It’s going to be a deliciously frenetic brawler with the signature style and glamour I’ve come to expect, and I’m so ready for more. 

Devil May Cry 5

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Every second I’ve been able to play of Devil May Cry 5 so far has been a knock-down, drag-out brawl that’s satisfied me to my core. The return of Trish and Lady as well as Dante and Nero have me ridiculously excited — and is V actually Vergil? It’s all going to come to light soon, and I’m ready to pull my Devil Trigger.
