It’s getting colder, Gamescom is over, and next week the fall starts. That means that you really have to start on your wish list now. LauraJenny lends a hand by telling you what’s coming this year (a lot!).

Seers Isle (PC) – 18
Blind (PS VR, Rift, Vive) – 18
Fellow Traveler will release a narrative psychological thriller next week in which you experience what it’s like to be blind. Echolocation allows you to discover your environment, which is much needed because you have no idea what happened. You were not blind yet, you just became this. It’s up to you to discover what that is. It promises to be an intense experience, because you have not exactly woken up in a fairytale forest. It’s a VR game, so that makes the experience even more intense. It is a bit like the expedition ridge route from MuZIEum, but narrower.

My Brother Rabbit (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 21
Wizards Tourney (PC) – 21
A Bonfire of Souls has recently been working on a game that you can play with three friends. You are all magicians. Don’t let the cute look fool you too much, as it seems that there is some very unique and addictive gameplay hidden underneath. You have to show your magic and watch out for traps in all kinds of different arenas. It is a constant race to be the best and that means in this case that you can also bully your competitors to stay ahead of them. It’s a magical world, so you can imagine the arenas don’t stay the same all the time. Be flexible, watch some Harry Potter to prepare and your Wizards Tour your friends in front of you.

HEVN (PC) – 24
Valkyria Chronicles 4 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 25
Air Missions: HIND (PS4) – 25
Little Bug (PC) – 25
Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition (PS4) – 25
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Owltimate Edition (Switch) – 25
Parkasaurus – Steam Early Access (PC) – 25
V-Rally 4 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 7/25
The rally game V-Rally 4 has great courses with exciting races where the competition is daring. You can play the game in split screen, so if you know an even more challenging competitor – a good friend of yours – you can play together on a console. It is a game in which you cannot always keep your car under control, but that is also part of rally. It is quite different whether you are in muddy Africa or snowy America.

This is the Police 2 (PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 25

Life is Strange 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – 27
Insomnia: The Ark (PC) – 27
Armello (Switch) – 27
Exorder (Switch) – 27
Wandersong (PC, Switch) – 27
Jagged Alliance: Rage (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – 27
TowerFall (Switch) – 27
It’s one of the better couch co-op games of the last decade. TowerFall combines an old school thick pixel layer with a game that can best be described as hectic. Very hectic. In a 2D arena you have to shoot all kinds of ghosts and other scum with your bow and arrow, where the arrows are not automatically refilled. So you also have to go after them to pick them up again, while your screen fills up more and more with enemies. On the one hand, it is of course even busier on the screen with the two of you, but the game is difficult enough to use that second player well.

Dragon Ball FighterZ (Switch) – 28
Namco Museum Arcade PAC (Switch) – 28

Disgaea 1 Complete (PS4, Switch) – 12
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – 12
The fifth game in the Black Ops series will not feature a single player campaign for the first time, which is a choice that was not equally well received by everyone. It only contains Zombies and Multiplayer. There is also a lot of bets on Blackout, a new battle royale mode. Not a very original plan, but it can become very popular in a beloved game like Call of Duty. Especially because you can play with all friends from the series, from Alex Mason to Raul Menendez.

Luigi’s Mansion (3DS) – 12
The World Ends with You -Final Remix- (Switch) – 12
Lego DC Super-Villains (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 16

Spintires: MudRunner – American Wilds Edition (PS4, Xbox One) – 23
Just Dance 2019 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Switch, Wii, Wii U) – 23
Lethal League Blaze (PC) – 24
We still have to wait for the PlayStation 4 version of this game, but on the PC you can already use it this year. Lethal League is a game in which you have to hit a ball with three others that goes faster and faster. If you miss him, you lose. That doesn’t sound so cool, but Team Reptile manages to style it with cell-shaded cartoony figures and funny backgrounds, that the simple yet effective gameplay comes to life.

Flashback 25th Anniversary (PS4, Xbox One) – 25

Deracin (PSVR) – 6
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – 6
We’ve got a ton of games you can play in multiplayer in this wishlist, but there’s still room for those unadulterated solo moments too. For example in the platform game Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. You are in the game Jin who must stop his uncle Nabu from ruining the world with chaos and magic. The inspiration is Wonder Boy III. It’s not a very standard side-scrolling adventure, as you have open worlds to navigate and various puzzles to make it extra difficult for you to reach the next enemy. Fortunately, there are all metamorphoses you can earn that often make the game feel different.

The Last Remnant Remastered (PS4) – 6
In 2008, The Last Remnant appeared on Xbox 360 and PC, with the promise that it would also come to PS3. In the end, that never happened, which is a huge downer for the RPG-loving PlayStation audience. Ultimately, you can still enjoy the game, even in a remaster, if you have a PlayStation 4. The Last Remnant Remasters is a dark game, which you wouldn’t expect from the studio behind Final Fantasy. The game consists of all arenas in which you take on strange creatures with Rush Sykes. You don’t do that alone, because you can form a ‘union’ where you can control up to five characters in battle at the same time.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) – 7
Insurgency: Sandstorm (PC) – 12
