Anticipating Games 2011/2012


Recommended Posts

With E3 ending I figured we'd get another one of these threads started, granted I don't know if E3 really mattered since most of if not all the games that were shown we already knew about since 2010, which also made E3 look rather weak this year but that's another topic for another day. From what I've seen there were a few games that I've seen that had a release date for the holiday months (Are there any games worth mentioning that're suppose to be released this season? Usually there are a couple of hitters that're released during the summer months but I don't recall hearing about or seeing any. Come to think of it I don't think we had any last year either) and next year. Anyway, instead of posting a list I'm going to post some videos of what I'm anticipating.

First up:

[center][b]Asura's Wrath[/b][/center]

When I first seen this trailer (and others) I was blown away. I guess part of that is because I'm a sucker for QTE's and then the graphics in this game is just top notch. I think I heard or read that the game is a mixture of gameplay and cinema's.. (I want to say somewhat like Heavy Rain, or at least that's what came to mind when I first heard that) For me the game just look too epic to pass by.

[center][b]Mass Effect 3[/b][/center]

I only beat Mass Effect 1 so far and thought that game was really epic. I've yet to really dive into Mass Effect 2 and I hear that game is even more epic than ME1. And going by the trailer alone I can only hope that this one will be more epic than both 1 and 2. I saw some bits added to melee. I don't know how much I'll use that since I was still unfamiliar with using melee in ME1 (or was that ME2?). I will say that the game looks even more impressive, visually speaking (you'll probably see that a lot lol)

[center][b]Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception[/b][/center]

Like Mass Effect, I've only played Uncharted 1 and I haven't beaten that yet either (I do own Uncharted 2 as well) but from what I've played of it I enjoyed it thoroughly. At this point I don't think I want to see anything new from Uncharted though. I'm hoping that everything they've been showing was multiplayer because I don't want to be spoiled from the single-player campaign (it just seem like I've been seeing nothing but bits of the campaign). Definately a must buy for me. I may even get it on day 1.

[center][b]Halo 4[/b][/center]

I think we all know by now that I don't do multiplayer so I'm basically in it for the campaign and I dig Halo's campaign. (I'm getting ready to start playing ODST and Reach for the first time)

That's it's for now. I'm a little tired so I don't feel like doing any more typing.

I've already pre-ordered the limited edition Uncharted 3, I loved the first 2 games. My original PS3 died half way though my play through of Uncharted 2, within 1 hour I had a new one just to finish the game. This is probably going to be my only full price game purchase this year. I'm looking forward to Arkum City but i'll wait for the price to come down.

[color="#696969"][font="Tahoma"]I can't believe this game hasn't been mentioned here as I'm sure we have a lot of Star Wars fans on OtakuBoards.


I can't wait to get my hands on my Bounty Hunter. :3 The only game I'm looking forward to more than Old Republic is...


Sonic Generations. I get excited and let down by about every Sonic game that comes out (except Sonic 4 which was surprisingly good) so I'm not going to get my hopes up but it [i]does[/i] look like a step in the right direction. And just typing the name of the game reminded me of one other I'm looking forward to, lol.


For all you Naruto fans Ninja Storm is hands down the best franchise based on the series. The fights are fast and fluid, the gameplay is simple to understand yet difficult to master and the art style is just spot on. Two of my Naruto fan-friends of mine and myself have been playing these games religiously since the first one came out and I can't [i]wait[/i] for the new one. I'm hoping they include all the characters from the [spoiler]on-going Ninja War arc[/spoiler]. I don't think I've ever played a game so much as I have the second Ninja Storm.

We do at least 30 matches every time we play, around 70 when it's all 3 of us and we've been doing this for a [i]while[/i]. Normally I don't like to toot my own horn, but all 3 of us [i]own[/i] at this game so if any of you are up for a challenge and own it on PS3 add me (Nederby) and toss me a challenge.[/font][/color] Edited by 8bit

There's a heaping ton of games I'm anticipating, mostly over this fall for the 3DS. But, in particular, I'm really looking forward to [b]Solatorobo[/b].


It just looks so fun and I want it. In fact, I've already preordered it! It's coming out in late September (this month!) so I won't even have to wait that much longer.

[color="#9932CC"][font="Microsoft Sans Serif"]Ace Attorney Investigations 2! I really--oh wait, they're not bringing that over.

Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright! That looks like--wait, when's it coming out?

Paper Mario 3DS! I really lo--hang on, where's the release date for this, too?

Megaman Legends 3! I love Legends and--OH WAIT, Capcom canceled it.

Okayokay, there's some games I want that haven't been delayed/denied/canned or have ambiguous release dates. Here's a few:

[center][b]Professor Layton and the Last Specter[/b]

Heck yes. I love some Professor Layton, and it's about time we're getting this. We're even getting London Life right out of the box! But I'll probably still just play the main story before going onto that, anyway. I'm also looking forward to Eternal Diva coming out on DVD later this year.


This has actually been out for about a month now, but the more I read about it, the more I really want it. I was a little uneasy because of some of the content [adultery and some suggestive stuff], but I've read it's a lot more than just that, so I'm really interested.

And it's got Troy Baker voicing the lead, and everyone needs that voice in their life.

[center][b]Zelda: Skyward Sword[/b]

Okay, I typically could not care less about graphics in games, but oh my gosh [i]this is so pretty[/i]. Everything is so lush and alive, Zelda looks downright adorable, and the game looks very fun overall. I'm honestly sorely tempted to preorder it, since the preorder bonus at Gamestop has the 25th anniversary orchestra CD [and I kind of have to get the special edition since it has the controller, and I don't have MotionPlus, so...]

I also second Sonic Generations for the simple fact that City Escape from Adventure 2 is one of the stages and has an absolutely kickin' remix of the City Escape song for Classic mode. So much yes.[/font][/color] Edited by Sangome

Games con Firstlook will be around the corner from me, so I'll have to drop by there. They're the only con this year with a Rockstar booth, and they've announced that they will be presenting some new stuff from Max Payne 3 there. :^D

I can't believe I forgot to mention [b]Assassin's Creed: Revelation[/b]. Playing the 1st Assassin's Creed for the 360 on a crappy tv turned me away from the series but then I ended up getting AC2 for the PS3 and I ended up loving it even though I never finished it. I even have AC: Brotherhood but I've yet to play it although I've seen playthroughs of it. Revelations looks just as good if not better even though Ezio is an older man. Anyway, have a look.


Then there's [b]Batman: Arkham City[/b]. I gotta be honest here. I didn't enjoy Arkham Asylum that much compared to everyone else who're praising it. No doubt it's the best Superhero game out but it didn't live up to my expectations. The combat was nice, but it just felt like it could've been so much more. The stealth part was great though. Anyway, AA at one point made me not even consider getting Arkham City because I thought it was pretty mediocre but seeing some of the vids to AC made me reconsider. It look like AC will be much better than AA.
