Off the top of my head:

Bioshock Infinite
Mass Effect 3

I finished Dead Space at the end of November and loved it. Moved straight on to Dead Space 2, am half way through and loving that even more

Which platform?

Max Payne 3 - Yes
Bioshock 3 - No, didn't get into the first one really maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance.
Far Cry 3 - Loved number 1, number 2 was a bit too much walking around collecting diamongs etc. Be interested to see what they do with it but not on I am particularly excited about
Cod 500 - Not for me
Ghost recon 4 future soldier - Not for me
GTA5 - YES! Cannot wait for this probably one of the games of the years for me smile
The Agency [Rockstar playstation exclusive] - *sigh* Wish I had a PS too frown
Starhawk [playstation exclusive] - As above
The last Guardian [playstation exclusive] - As above
The last of us. - Not seen anything about this or heard of it, will check it out
Borderlands 2 - First one bored me after a few hours. Repetitive gameplay and not nice graphics, don't like cartoony games.
Prototype 2 - Really loved the first one except for the graphics like you say. The premise was brilliant though and I enjoyed unlocking all the abilities, scaling buildings, flying off and stealing a chopper lol smile Looks like it will be better graphics on this and after reading the overview on Wiki I would say this sounds like it will be much better than the first. Much more abilities and choosing your missions as you go along = winner.
Ninja gaiden 3 - Not for me!
Mass effect 3.......If i get some patience time and commitment - Not so into the spacey RPG type feel of this franchise.

To add to the list I have Darksiders 2 as I loved the first one, basically Zelda but playing as a Horseman of the Apocalypse! Brilliant stuff smile

New Alan Wake game on Xbox Live Store, looking forward to that Alan Wake is one of my top 10 games.

Possibly the new Fable, depends how much it is linked with the Kinect as what I have heard so far doesn't excite me that much but I will reserve judgement on this.

Hoping a couple of other games I don't know of will surprise me, I am sure you will keep me in the loop and regular checks on some other gaming sites. Usually every year a couple of games come along that I love and didn't expect and I couple that I look forward to and am sorely disappointed with so I don't think 2012 will be any different!

Yeah mate anything of interest comes along I'm sure i will be posting about on here,there are many games i have not mentioned because of a lack of details.

If you check out the latest Bioshock 3 videos then you will be impressed with the way this game looks.

The first Bioshock blew me away but the second never really had that wow factor and as i have said in a previous post that these sort of games need to do different things when they release follow ups.

Because the first was different from most other games it was fresh and exciting and nobody really new what to expect which made the game stand out,then the follow up came along and for some reason for me it just did not work out.

So im hoping the new one will add something a little different,even though i listed borderlands 2 i will agree with your comments because i felt the same ,it's not cast in stone that i buy all the game listed but just a few from many that may meet a few expectations.

2011 for me had many hyped games failing to have the impact when released,as for Starhawk I'm hoping that us European users get the beta today that went live in the USA yesterday.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Total War: Shogun 2
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Yes, I know they are all 2011 games, but I'm a cheap-scape laugh

I'm currently playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and can't put it down, typical Bioware output in an MMO, if you have a PC you have to at least try it (if they ever do a free trial!).

I generally get bored of most MMO's in a couple of weeks, mainly because every mission you get is text driven and repetitive with few cut scenes involved, SWTOR has out shone every MMO ever created in my opinion. Almost every single mission has a full cut scene, the creative work put into this game is astounding.

If you've played MMO's before (WoW etc.), you'd know what the word 'grind' means. They've done a really great job of keeping the grind to an absolute minimum. The Flashpoints in game (effectively instanced dungeons) are incredibly well scripted and sometimes very long, one I did the other day lasted about an hour with 4 people in the group.

Been playing since early access and I'll probably level every class you can to 50 just to see the story lines.

This wasn't supposed to be a review lol, I just think it's that good smile

Aside from Max Payne 3 (which has been delayed) and maybe Aliens, there isn't much to be excited about.

Just to rub it in Jaxx just downloaded the Starhawk Beta exclusive to playstation plus idiots like me, its a very nice looking game from the 30 minutes i spent trying to work out how to play it late this evening.

Another surprise on the xbox live site was the demo of the Darkness 2, quite good from what i played but then again i could see me becoming bored with it after a hour or two.

Hi Samson,

That sounds very interesting, I hadn't read much about TOR but you have just summed it up quite well in a short post. I do enjoy my MMO's, I haven't got into one since WoW and I gave up on that after hitting level 50 odd as it became a bit of a boring grind and if I wanted to do a raid I had to be on at a set time with about 20 other people who took the game FAR too seriously. My housemate was part of the best clan on our server and he had to keep Tuesdays, Thursday and Sundays free to raid, that is no way to live your life lol.

Anyway, I digress! The fact that it has the cut scenes and there is minimum grinding involved has intrigued me. I will check out a few videos over the weekend, can you get a 7 day trial for it or anything like that? If not I don't mind paying 1 month to give it a whirl. Is there a good variety of classes?

There are no trials at the moment, too early I guess.

There are 4 basic classes on each side (Republic & Imperial) and 4 (I think) species, at level 10 you get to choose between 2 sub classes (permanent choice). So there are 8 classes per side atm.

The grinding is still kind of there I guess, but you get wrapped up in the story so you tend not to really notice it. After all, it is an MMO and it follows the basic layout that all MMOs have followed since UO.

I'm playing on a US server but there are EU ones, just most people I know who are playing it are Americans Theres either PVP or PVE, I'm on a PVP server and once you are out of the core worlds PVE becomes open world PVP. It's great fun though, can be quite nerve racking when you are fighting a mob and expecting an Imp to jump you once your health is down laugh We've had a lot of fun on Tatooine grouping up against Imp players.

Once you get to 50 there is a dedicated PVP planet called Ilum which I'm told is a lot of fun, but I'm only 44 so a while to go yet.

Try not to read the SWTOR forums, there's a very vocal group of people complaining about everything and anything. They released a patch yesterday which was bugged to hell, but they re patched before 24 hours were up, the forums went into melt down, was quite amusing to watch.

It's still early days, BW intended to introduce more species, more content etc. There are a few bugs, no high res textures, some GFX bugs, some classes aren't balanced too well in PVP, but I don't doubt they'll fix it as quick as they can. Don't roll a tank if you are more into PVP or like to level quickly, it's my main (Jedi Knight Guardian) and its so slow levelling atm as they do very little damage in comparison to other classes.

If you've ever played KOTOR, it's a little like that but online.

I tried WoW a long while ago and never even made level 20. The immersion in TOR is fantastic, it's the first game in an age that I haven't instantly turned off the music in!
