My Thoughts: We start the month with a massive PlayStation 4 exclusive which I've gone and ordered the the Collectors Edition with a statue of Aloy then only two days later it's payday and something else is happening that day.
That something else is Zelda: BotW which I've got the edition with the sword on order (Also got it coming on Wii U) and thanks to Cappa and getting rid of the Xbox One and a few other bits, I won't be putting any money to it as I've got it and the console I'll be playing it on payed off already.
Skylanders and Bomberman both sort of tempt me as launch games but don't think I will go for either as one will just be okay and the other is from a certain kompany.
Moving on in the month, Ghost Recon looks good but doesn't look like a Ghost Recon game and Ubisoft games & me don't click. All the games on the 10th look interesting but 3DS will take a major back-seat now and part from NieR Automata the other two might be a to niche for me and come out at bad time, otherwise I may have given Atelier Firis a bash as I still want to play a Atelier game.
Danganronpa 1-2 Reload is in a similar place to Atelier any other time I may have picked up, especially as I've not played the second yet and the third along with the spin-off are also coming to PS4, be nice to have all on one system.
Mass Effect Andromeda, I should be hyped for as the Mass Effect Trilogy is my favourite game of all time but I've got this gut feeling that it won't be very good as Casey is not the lead and its a different team.
Then to round up the month is a bunch games that look interesting but can't see me picking up right away Dreamfall Chapters, I really liked the one on the OG Xbox. Touhou Genso Wanderer & GOD WARS Future Past seem they might be good on the VITA which like the 3DS will now take a back-seat, Toukiden 2 a MonHan clone on PS4 which sounds good to me again it's the time to play it, the last one I have got on order is Kingdom Hearts.
For me it is Horizon, Zelda, Nier as who doesn't love a quality platinum made game they're even worth buying consoles for and Kingdom Hearts, with me waiting for reviews for Mass Effect Andromeda. All the others that I've got some interest in being maybes at the most.
Best of the Rest:

TBC Fast RMX NSe Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII Japanese Import NS Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove NSe Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! NSe Super Mario Run Droid
My Thoughts: On the 3rd of March, I will be getting a Nintendo Switch all the Zelda amiibo minus the Wolf Link one as I've already got him, Switch Pro-Controller and I Am Setsuna even if it is only £20 on PSN at the moment as I want something else to play on my Switch part from just Zelda hence why even Skylanders is tempting me.
The other downloads on the day, depends on price more then anything and see how they review. Not to be lost on that day is Logan which seems like it might be a dam good film, Kong might be worth seeing as well.
Iron Fist coming to Netflix is great and the last series before the Defenders, I'm going to try and watch Digimon Adventure Tri: The Movie Part 1 at some-point and on 90's nostalgia Power Rangers.
Testfire for Splatoon 2 should be fun with you guys. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is yet another film to go see, what a month for movies Logan, Kong, Power Rangers and Guardians.
The month end has some more Switch games and some TBC for the month and all interest me especially Fast RMX, if a bunch of us buy it.
For me it is a Switch, Pro Controller, I Am Setsuna, amiibo, Zelda Deluxe Guide and see when and how much the downloads are and hopefully go see a lot of good films.

The Dark Souls III DLC I've already paid for and will be playing the heck out of naturally.
The other big one for me is Mass Effect. I love that universe, I love the writing and characters, I love the combat and having a nice amount of exploration will be a big plus for me. When I played the original, I was in a hurry to play 2 and 3 but that won't be the case this time. For that same reason, I don't think I'll be playing it that much straight away, but waiting until other games with swords and monsters are wrapped up and I can just give myself to the Andromeda galaxy 100%.
Other than that, just my 10 copies of Bomberman and a trip to the pictures for the 8th Wonder of the World.

Quality month for games this is, Horizon has had my eye for a while (of course there's no way it can compete with Zelda, but then what can!), Breath of the Wild which is likely contender for game of the decade if it delivers (certainly adventure game of the decade at the very least!), and more exposure for the glory of the Danganronpa franchise (won't be buying it myself though, the portability on the Vita makes it great for some bed-time reading!)
I'll likely get Breath of the Wild if I can rustle up the money (already got a ton to buy and subscriptions to renew next month so that's debatable, if it comes down to choosing a mecha model kit I've hoped to see made for over a decade or Zelda, well, lets just say Link's waiting a month), Nier Automata and Horizon will likely join the collection whenever I get around to buying a PS4.
And yes, I did indeed just make a post with nothing but compliments over a months release. Hell froze over last night and some pigs were spotted flying to the moon by a local astronomer! #FakeNews

A Switch & BotW, the other stuff like Bomberman & whatever takes my fancy on the eShop can wait until a few weeks later. For PS4 I'll be after Ghost Recon & Mass effect though the latter may not be a day one buy because my backlog has got quite stupid recently.
(It doesn't help that all I want to play on there at the minute is PES & R6 Siege)

The former for me, plus I only have so much money. Even I'm not going to have time to get anything out of that before Zelda on a new console hits. Only other game I know I'm getting this month is Mass Effect Andromeda.
Interested in getting Ghost Recon, Atelier Firis, Nier and possibly Kingdom Hearts at some point, but just don't got the funds/time.

I've just read the IGN review of Horizon and I'm now interested, although it's a big game that I tend to steer clear of these days. My PS4 is primarily a PES machine - I've tried Bloodborne, Witcher 3, Doom and others but none have grabbed me. Saying that, PS+ has generated a healthy library of indie games to work through and if I was to buy any new game, it would probably be Nioh. I really want to get in to Dark Souls but the combat leaves me frustrated - a Team Ninja take on Dark Souls may be my thing.
