Welcome to Top of the Plops, the monthly roundup of The Day Tonight in which staff pick the games they plan on buying in the upcoming month. September saw the announcement, and release of, Super Mario 3D All-Stars shortly after the last post went live. What surprises does October hold for us?
Caspius: I am hoping for a Bravely Default II release in October, which would definitely be my pick for the month. But because that is unlikely, my big pick for October is the expansion for Pokemon Sword and Shield. I have already downloaded the releases of Pikachu wearing two of Ash Ketchum’s hats from the anime series, and I am looking forward to the rest as well. But the big draw remains the possibility of some new Pokemon being added to the game–especially Rattata. Because, boy oh boy, would I love to tell you about my Rattata!
SiliconNooB: If I checked Discord more often, then maybe I would reply when asked what I am looking forward to in the coming month. I have better things to do, like playing more Mary Skelter 2.
Ethos: I really shouldn’t be buying anything and I’ve been enjoying finally completing some games in my catalogue over the past few weeks, but my eye is on that Sega sale happening for the Switch and 3DS, so count on me to break my budget for an RPG or two.
Imitanis: I shall be buying the Robotics;Notes double pack for Switch in October. This visual novel…. Sorry, I have been told by Caspius that visual novels are not games. I guess I’ll be playing more Hades in between the moments of my eagerly anticipated ‘entertainment software’.
Readers, will you be picking up any of these games? What are your picks for October? Let us know in the comments!
