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!

Can’t think of one right now…
I’ve watch a lot animes in my time. So much that I’ve tried to put together a list of everything I’ve seen, I’ve stopped seeing and want I want to see.
You can find this list at MyAnimeList (MAL), you’ll also find a link to the list under
”MY LINKS” in the top menu. A whooping amount of over 250 anime-shows and movies have I watched. And there is just more to come. I’ve been watching anime for
over 15 years now, so its natural that I’ve gone through a few shows.
Here are the anime shows of Spring 2010 that interests me. Not sure I’ll be following them all from beginning to end, but I’m going to give them each a fair chance. Some if not all titles here has links leading to Anime News Network, where you can get more info on the series in question. There are more shows I want to see, but these are the ones at the top.
- Tales of Symphonia – Tethe’alla Chapter
The sequel to the first four episodes of the Tales of Symphonia anime. The first one took place on Sylverant and this will continue the story on Tethe’alla. For those who has played the game, you can pretty much guess what’s going to happen.
- Gundam Unicorn
I’m not a Gundam fan, but I really like the Gundam Unicorn figure/Gunpla. I did enjoy the 1st season of Gundam 00. So I’m giving this one a chance.
- Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
I know literally nothing about this series. Nothing more than its supposed to be a romantic comedy. Which happens to be one of my favorite type of anime series. So this could really turn out to be good or crap.
- Kiss x Sis
This is the perverse or ”ecchi” show of the season. Gotta have one of those too. ;)
- Negima! Another World 3
I’ve watched everything else that has something to do with Negima! And I’ve enjoyed everything, the two first episodes of this OVA where nice. I have hope this one will be just as good.
- Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou
Besides it being a fantasy comedy, I don’t know much else. But from from pictures and little text iIve read, I’m very interested.
- B Gata H Kei
Yet another series I know nothing about. But it seems to be a comedy and I like anime comedy’s. So of course I’ll give it a shot!

So since I’m working on my list of best and worst things of 2009, I thought I could make a post about what I’m looking forward to in the upcoming year. So here is my game list, I decided to just stick with four games that I’m most interested in now. Since they are game I’m 100% I’m getting. I will probably do a list like this with movies also, not to sure yet. What games are you looking forward to in 2010?
3D Dot Game Heroes (PS3)
its a Zelda type of game or ripoff like some would say. I can understand that, since its heavily inspired by the old Zelda games. It’s because of that and the great music from the game that has made me so interested. I’m hoping this will be a better Zelda experience for me than the newest Zelda games. I’m in love with the retro feeling and charm or this game.
Darksiders (PS3 & 360)
You play as one of the four horsemen of Apocalypse and is trying to restore balance to the destroyed world. Its said to be a Dark-Zeldaish game. The art is nice and from trailers it looks pretty awesome. Already preordered from Gamestop thanks to game trade-ins.
Final Fantasy XIII (PS3 & 360)
Well for most people when you say RPG they say or think Final Fantasy, its not my favorite RPG-series but I’ve enjoyed the games I’ve played so far. And now its time for part 13 to be released. After playing the demo earlier this year, I’ve been really hyped about this game and I hope it turns out really well.
White Knight Chronicles (PS3)
Long awaited RPG that was released about a year ago in Japan, the sequel was announced before this was confirmed to come outside of Japan. But it is and I can’t wait to take the role of Leonard and transform into a giant knight.
The game will have an online part where you can play as the character you have to create in-game, here you will be able to gather items to use in the games main story. I think I’ll be spending some time with the online mode.

I made a list last night of all the RPGs I’ve finished. It came to a total of 34games. I think thats a little low. But I can’t remember anymore RPG’s right now that I’ve finished. Brain freeze, heh. Well here they are in all their glory…
Hopefully I can remember if there are more games I’ve left out.
Or you might come with some tips. Why bother with this? Well I think its fun to show people what games you’ve finished and people can see what games I’ve finished so we could talk about them with out spoiling stuff.

Comment and I’ll give you a letter. You have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After that, post this in your journal, and give out some letters of your own. (I was a little late to make this, so sorry. ^^ I won’t be giving the one who game me a letter a new, letter. So please come on other people, comment!) =)
I got the letter ”L” from nordiclania. Here I go!!
(Wow, this was hard. Thinking of stuff that starts with an L that I like.)
Lunar Silver Star Story Complete
One of the first RPG’s I tried and fell in love with. So its a very important game to me.
Without it I would probably never had started to play RPGs.
The person who gave me this letter and challenge. =)
An important friend. Even if we haven’t meet I take great pride in people who want to be my friends, even if its only on the internet.
I’v always had trouble getting friends when I was little and don’t have a lot of friends today. So I love every friend I have.
Salt likerish, yummy! :D
You just have to love life. Sure, I’m not to fond of it always.
But just do your best and live life to your fullest.
Of course this has to be here! Where else am I going to post all my ramblings?!
Yeah, Link. You know the boy with the pointy ears from the Legend of Zelda games.
A Link To The Past being my favorit Zelda game, so that Link need to be on this list!
One of Disneys absolute best movies ever! I’ve loved this movie since the first time I saw it.
I actually saw it again about a week ago. :D
One of my favorite moves with Adam Sandler. (sorry, was getting desperare here) ^_^;
A bad thing to put on the list perhaps. But I need it to keep in contact with some of my friends.
Making lists, don’t we all love it! :D
