I haven't gotten many of this year's new releases. The only other one I'm waiting for that I'm confident will actually see the light of day in 2016 is Quartz's Fear No Evil.
EDIT: Actually, I'm also looking forward to Sahg's Memento Mori. Only learned about it today. And to a lesser extent, Eternal Champion's The Armor of Ire, which I also found out about today.
