Skyrim: Dragonborne DLC comes out February 5th. I bought Skyrim: Dawnguard last month.
So far, that's it. I don't foresee much more being spent this year. We will see as it progresses.
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR
Probably nowhere but casual friendly games that are indeed fun, unique, and multiplayer.
As of 2013, I have yet to spend any money, and Q4 spent was mostly in vain, although I am glad of SOME of the money I spent in Planetside 2 (although I quit playing, and obviously spent too much), donation to HumbleBundle Dungeon Defender gave a good week of great fun before getting boring, and The Walking Dead (haven't played it yet, but the demo and reviews clearly show it to be a game I will undoubtedly love). My birthday and christmas gifts of XCOM remains unopened (although it is tempting) and Assassins Creed 3 is a total poorly made bugfest of crap which doesn't even work most of the time. That, and I still occassionally play The Last Stand (Warhammer 40k Dawn of War 2) which I bought a looong time ago.
Edit: If Company of Heroes 2 is anything like the original, I will be buying that- probably for me and all of my friends and family. The original is probably one of THE best games I've ever played. Simply amazing, even despite its massive flaws (RELIC programmers and the network tards who provided us with the one of the biggest fails ever made in terms of networking and DRM)
Where is my money going this year? Probably in my bank account. I am growing tired of the uninspired new releases, failed updates of old releases, and the simple fact I am more excited to play old SNES/SEGA ROMS than I am new releases. Of which, I don't play those ROMS either...given Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and other amazing television series are far more entertaining than video games.
Things have changed greatly. I am 27, and still have an enormous amount of freetime like I did the rest of my life. Yet unlike then, I don't game 18 hours a day anymore. I don't even game 8...or 4...or even 1. I have spent most of my time reading into politics, watching The Daily Show, viewing The Young Turks, and insulting redneck conservatives on Facebook.
It entertains me a lot more to create my video game and learn new relative skills, than to actually play games. From the look of it, I am still far ahead of my original goal. I gave myself 8 years to create my MMORPG. I've been learning a lot, and at this rate I will probably be done by the 8th, given the fact I am getting a lot closer and still have 5 years left.
A bit of money will go to Mabinogi again.
ArcheAge will get some of it as well if it launches this year.
Perhaps a return to my old flame, Dofus.
I'm still undecided as to whether or not I like Age Of Wushu, so probably a bit of money there if I see it as a potential game to spend a few months in.
I'll probably get Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC somewhere this year if I go back to it.
That's about it. There hasn't really been any other games, single-player or MMORPG that have caught my attention this year so far. Definitively looking forward to AA though as it looks like the kind of game I could really spend a while playing (or at least I'm very hopeful).

That's a pretty weird reason to discard a game.
I'd understand if someone said "I won't bother with 'x' game because it's made by 'x' studio" but to discard a game purely because it's made in Korea is something I find weird.

Take a deep breath. Now let it out. Calm down.
Personally, I am here hoping some future MMORPG will surprise me. As time goes on, I find that hope dwindling. I am pleased you enjoy the state of MMORPGs now and are having fun You are in the majority.
Originally posted by Thorkune Archeage was also going to get some until I found out it is a Korean title. So, I guess I will go with TESO to go along with TR.
Originally posted by MadnessRealm Originally posted by Thorkune It was also going to be Archeage until I found out it is a Korean title.
I say that because every Korean title that I have ever played has been excessively grindy. Aion was supposed to be the greatest game ever and it ended up having a very bad launch because of the horrible grind. I want a sandbox very bad, so I am putting all of my eggs in the repopulation basket. If Archeage ends up being good after launch, I will give it a shot. But, for now, I have no interest in it.

Know what's funny? Games like the release versions of EQ, SWG, FFXI, and UO were far more grindy than most modern Korean titles, yet people praise them. Go figure.

That's why I didn't like any of those titles except for SWG. But, I preferred the NGE version of SWG. I thought pre-NGE was way too grindy.
Don't get me wrong, I want Archeage to do good. The genre needs a lot more sandbox options for folks.
as far as mmo's go... 2014 call me maybe?
till then most likely a few support packs for PoE. The game is indie, but the company has so much potential if they keep getting funded.
WoW sub, Steam sales, new tires for my motorcycle and that's it.
Trying to save up for something non game related.
No MMO will see my money til Titan releases.
---Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
A new PC
Crysis 3 to test said new PC
As far as MMO goes: ARR and ArcheAge i s'pose. Maybe Neverwinter, i kinde like the Amalur-feel of the combat.

Originally posted by Inf666 Anything where exploration, action-oriented combat and a good crafting system are the main features.
So no MMOs, huh?
Elder Scrolls Online and Neverwinter
Nothing else has piqued my interest.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

Wow... this hobby really has been hijacked by people that don't honestly and genuinely even like it.
People that don't get enough fun from playing these games to spend even a minimal amount on them (yet who will invest their precious leisure time into them... the mind boggles) and seem to have a deep animosity to what these games fundamentally are.
Worst thing is that folks like the guy above me here are the ones steering the industry.
SWTOR and GW2-Exp if it is released this year.
Age of Wushu and probably EVE-Online as well.
PS4 / Xbox720 (or w/e they call the next-gen consoles) and launch titles
Bioshock infinite, Metal Gear Solid Rising, Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, SimCity, The Last of Us etc etc etc..
