2011 seems to be a good year for games, a lot of big squeals are coming out. And of course being a Playstation 3 owner that I am, I have a few treats to look forward to. Games like Infamous 2, Uncharted 3 and Batman Arkham City (also on PC & X360). I’m a bit sad to say that I’ve only kept eyes on the Playstation 3 games, well since its the only console I have right now. I think that’s pretty understandable, I just wanted to make it clear to people I’m in no way a fanboy. I like all consoles they each have something to bring to the table, but right now I’m mainly focused on Playstation 3. So sadly, I have no idea what’s coming to the other consoles.
2011 in all seems to be a pretty big gaming year Nintendo 3DS has been released, the squeal to Nintendo DS. And Sony’s ”NGP” (PSP2) might also see a release this year.
And then there are rumors about Nintendo showing their newest stationary console on this years E3, can’t wait to see all the goodness that will be shown this year. Well here is a little list of games I’m looking forward to this year. Well here is my list of some of the games I’m really looking forward to, they are in no particular oder. I wrote them down as I remembered them. So tell me, what games are you looking forward to?
Batman Arkham City
The sequel to one of the best games in 2009 is of course on this list! Anything else would be a goddamn shame! The world in the game seems to have expanded a whole lot. From being in Arkham Asylum in the first game, to run around in Gotham City. Or rather Arkham City that it has been renamed too. The whole city has become a prison, which Hugo Strange seems to govern with an iron fist. I want this game, I want this game now! I have complete faith in Rocksteady and can’t wait for them to give me my next Batman kick!
Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
The Disgaea series is about the only SRPG that I really like. Thanks to my friend Kntheking who introduced me too the series and since then, I’ve just keep on liking it more. The fourth game has new HD sprites, which looks really tasty. I’m hoping for the same kind of wonky humor I’ve come to love and expect from this series. It will be released sometime in September is nothing changes and I’m hoping it don’t. So in September its time for some crazy ass leveling again/grinding again!!
I really liked the first one, it took some time for me to get into it. But once I was there I was caught. I loved running around in Empire City and frying people with my electrical powers! Whahaha! Sure, I helped people too. But it was a fun game and the sequel seems to be more of the same. But hopefully there is more variation, guess I’ll know next month. And boy! I’m having a hard time waiting!
No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise
I’ve been interested in this game since I first saw it for the Wii, but I haven’t had a chance to try it. And not its getting released on Playstation 3 with some extra stuff. And the graphics have been improved a bit, and we get the ”very sweet mode”. What’s that? Well, hehehe… Its a mode where all the girls in the game wears a swimwear of some sort. Ya, know. Bikini and such. Eye candy. I’m mostly interested in this game for the humor and it looks fun, hey you save the game by going to the toilet. Just like in real life!
Tales of Graces F
This game together with Batman Arkham City and Uncharted 3 are my three most anticipated games of the year. If you haven’t gotten it already by reading my site, I’m a huge fan of the Tales of games from Namco Bandai. I tried the demo of this on the Japanese PSN store when it was released, and I liked it right away. Fighting was fast and nice, the music was awesome too. So I’m hoping we don’t have to wait to long until its released.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
The first two Uncharted games where awesome! They where Indiana Jones type of games, adventuring escaping danger. And really good action platforming games. And I’m my opinion way more better than the
Tomb Raider games. And the little stuff I’ve seen from the third game is awesome. I know I say awesome a lot, but its awesome! I won’t be watching anymore trailers or stuff from this game now, I want everything to feel fresh when I get to play it.
White Knight Chronicles 2
I seem to be one of the few who enjoyed the original WKC.
Sure, it had its problems and I thought it was a bit short and too easy. But I’m still looking forward to part 2. You can still create your own character in this game and this time you can create your own knight too, so I’m looking forward to that. And I want to see how the story unfolds. And if you haven’t played the original, don’t fret! Since WKC2 includes the first game too.
Saints Row The Third
I’ve never been a fan of the GTA games, but I fell for Saints Row 2. It’s humor is crazy, and you can create your own character. So its nice and groovy. I would just wish there where less hip hop stuff, I’m not into that.
And I’m hoping the character creator will be greatly expanded and upgraded since SA2. Right now there isn’t a whole lot of information on this game, which is a bit sad. But I’m hoping we’ll get more info soon. I really want to see how this game is in action. And I really want to take a look at the character creator.
