Title: What games are you guys looking forward to?
Posted: September 10, 2011 (10:39 AM)
all 2011 games

01) Zelda: Skyward Sword - Zelda has been one of my favorite video game series since my childhood - the other being Final Fantasy which hasn't held up as well. I've loved every major installment in the franchise. Though Wind Waker was a bit of a low point to me, I still enjoyed it a lot. Twilight Princess was extremely good, and I hope Skyward Sword doesn't falter by comparison.

02) Assassin's Creed: Revelations - It would be difficult to imagine after playing the first Assassin's Creed that this series would become a stellar franchise of sandbox games. I loved II & Brotherhood, and I'll be happy as long as this one ends up being 'more Assassin's Creed with some gameplay improvements' as Brotherhood was. I just hope the game does enough unique things to tide me over until the proper sequel without making the series' formula feel stale.

03) Skyrim - I finally got around to playing Oblivion this summer. I sunk way too many hours into the game. I loved parts, hated other parts, got completely bored by the end of the main quest. Even if the main quest sucks in this one, dicking around in the game world for 30-40 hours will be really fun until I become overpowered.

04) Gears of War 3 - Gears is pretty fun. Guess I'll be playing this soon.

05) Rage - This looks more up my alley than Modern Warfare 3 & Battlefield 3. It's like The Road Warrior & Fallout meets Doom!

Why not:

Dark Souls - Never played Demon's Souls so I don't really know what to think. What I've seen of both games frankly doesn't look all that fun, though I'd imagine it feels different factoring in the tension of nearly being killed by everything.

Batman: Arkham City - I liked Arkham Asylum, but I don't feel like I need this one right away. I'll likely own it before the year is over, but I'm just not that excited about it.

Halo Anniversary Edition - I want to get this some day, but $40 for an HD remake of a game I've already played a lot seems steep.

Modern Warfare 3 - Last Christmas, I received both Black Ops & Halo Reach. Black Ops was fun for a couple days before it was shelved. Reach got a lot more play time out of me. CoD is losing its appeal. Even before Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2 didn't enthrall me as much as Modern Warfare did. I doubt a 2011 edition of the game from 2 years ago pieced together by 3 studios is going make me satisfied with a $60 purchase.

Battlefield 3 - Looks pretty, but not really interested.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record - Same game as last year but with Frank West. For $40. I can't believe this is going to exist.

Silent Hill Downpour - This series should have ended after part 3. Downpour is going to suck.

Xenoblade - Being touted as one of the best JRPGs in some time but Nintendo of America doesn't want me to play it. Thanks, jerks.

Atelier Totori. The crafting RPG which is supposed to be better than Rorona. I enjoyed that, but found the myriad of endings and flags that prompted them a real pain to keep track of. End of September release so this is certain at least.

Catherine. Waited so long for this and there's still no definite release date: supposed to be this autumn.

Disgaea 4. Missed out on D3 so I think I'll get this one.

Rock of Ages. Wanted this since I first saw the footage of it, but again, TBA for EU on the PS3.

No Wii but even so I didn't like Spirit Tracks and never completed Twilight Princess so I won't be sad to miss another Zelda game.

..er.. yeah, so here's my list:

1. ICO collection.
2. MGS collection.
3. DMC collection.
4. Journey.
5. Twisted Metal ps3
6. The Last Guardian.
7. Bioshock Infinite.
8. Tales of Graces f
9. Uncharted 3.

..so basically, two of these have a release-date. One isn't confirmed is actually being made. Tales of.. might not make it to the west at all. And the rest have had their release-dates pushed back over a year.

Uncharted 3 is only on the list because I want to see the sand-animation. I have no expectations whatsoever when it comes to either story or online. But the sand animation and the moving levels seem much better done than the train in UC2. So that's looking nice.

Journey may very well be delayed again. And it's no doubt going to be released with camera-view control on the right thumb-stick after all. The online part, most likely, will be without lag-protection. And if we're going to see warping, I'm going to log off the psn when playing..

Meanwhile, IGN, 1up and the Escapist is telling me that the "Summer Drought" of games is over. And that we have millions of fantastic games coming up over the holidays. Like... like... Arkham City! And.. and... Arkham City, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations.. Thousands of titles!

..really, don't you just love the gaming press..?

Saints Row: The Third
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Legend of Zelda Wii U
Skyrim
Torchlight II
Batman: Arkham City
The Last Guardian
Tales of Graces f
Warhammer 40k: Space Marine
Mass Effect 3

Not that I'll be able to afford most of these... Hell, I just now finished DeathSpank, inFAMOUS, and Bayonetta.

Yeah, Xenoblade is pretty good. In Australia you can just go into a game shop and grab it off the shelf. :D

I'm most looking forward to Skyrim, Arkham City and perhaps the new Zelda. But that's just for the rest of this year.

This year, I will probably try to find some way to obtain:

Modern Warfare 3 (I liked the first two)
Battlefield 3 (Battlefield 2 rocks)
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim (I really want to like this series)
Assassin's Creed: Revelations (loved the first game, have and will someday play the others... probably love 'em all)
Uncharted 3 (the first one was good fun and it seems like the series is just getting better, or at least staying good)
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (duh!)

Assorted other stuff interests me but doesn't hang out on the top of my head where it can easily be retrieved when compiling such lists. I will be surprised if I end up with more than half of the above, or perhaps even that. Depends how much work I get.
