I've been alpha-testing Homefront, and I can say I'm very excited about the concept as well as the looks. ^_^ (I can't give out more, sorry.)

I'm also looking forward to Portal 2, having missed out on the classics such as Deus Ex and Duke Nukem.

D3 for me. But wait the whole year (at least) will be terrible. But for anyone that waited 10 years, I can wait one more. The "jeweler ", for me at least, seens quite obvious: the forge jewelery. something like "vital pendant of the stars" or "dunno-what ring of the lion". But i am little afraid that every title I saw that used so much time to develop turns out to be not so good. Statement that reminds me: does anyone have news on "project offset"?

I am hoping that ME3 will bring a nice closing to the trilogy, because the history in ME2 doesn't add much to it.

Batman: AC must be awesome! Loved AA! Lots of punchs in the face!

Lots of interesting titles this year for sure.

Portal, Homeland and... Crysis, perhaps?

What's noticeable, though, is they're all, with the exception of Homeland, sequels.. is originality dead in computer gaming?

You need to play Deus Ex now then. It's cheap. Possibly negates torrent cheap. Best game I've ever played. Still makes new games disappointing in some respects... I need to pick up Mass Effect, maybe that'll change things; although the reason I haven't already played it is the Edge review I read that brought to light my fears for the game: is it rpg enough? That and pure lazyness + cash flow no nos.

We've got extraordinarily attached to our hand-crafted character after carrying him over from the original Mass Effect
Him? but Shepard is female.
Or at least MY Shepard is anyway.
It is odd that ever screenshot I see of ME1 or 2, just looks 'wrong' somehow, without my character in there. It is quite amazing how personal the Mass Effect games become.

Personally there's no big games I'm looking forward to this year, although Batman:AA was a really well polished and solid game, so I'm expecting good things from the sequel. Torchlight 2 will probably eat up my spare time and give me RSI again, but most of all I'm looking forward to the remake of Dear Esther.

LBP2 but that’s almost here I suppose
Uncharted 3
Killzone 3
Forza 4

Not looking forward to much on PC which is a shame as I’ve just upgraded it, Still I picked up a lot of oldies from the steam sale that will keep me entertained.

Might give Mass Effect a bash as people keep banging on about it.

If they are magic jewels, sure. But surely magic stuff is handled by the Mystic?

The Ps3 has an amazing lineup of games in 2011, wow. Xbox has gears of war and thats about it.

It's worth noting that Kaos Studios were the guys behind Desert Combat and Battlefield 2 before DICE dropped them.

So Homefront has alot of potential considering BF3 probably wont live up to expectation!

I guess Mystic is making staves, wands and other stuff for "user of magic" character class. Jewels however can be inserted into socketed items - be it armor or weapon - to improve their combat efficiency and every character class can use them.

As much as I desperately want to see HL2E3 or even HL3, I don't think it's going to happen.

Valve have figured out that multi-player is the way of the future, but unless we clone ol' Gordon, it just doesn't fit. The reason they were able to make Portal 2 multi-player is that the mental image of how Portal "should be" is not set like it is for HL. I'd love to see a multi-player game set in the HL2 universe, but I don't think it will happen.

My other favorite pipe dream is a Stalker MMO, which would be about the most awesome thing going, but no one seems to be interested in making it.

Indeed - and are a must have for any mid to high level character if you want him/he to do sufficient damage to succeed against tougher enemies.

I think the only difference the article had was that Shogun 2 was it's game of note above all others. It all seemed like glorified advertising to be honest. At least these AAA titles seem to actually be worth the wait and anticipation. Or at least I hope so.

As for Brink, previews are few and far between, but the concept seems fantastic and if the teamplay is solid and the game mechanics work, I see it as a lasting shooter. Any chance you could divulge more about your playtests? :D

Absolutely looking forward to all those games listed ;).

Nothing in RTS - typical

Is there a more dead genre than RTS, I say?
DaBear 7th January 2011, 20:54 Quote
The Witcher 2 & Diablo 3 for me. I will get Dragon Age 2, but not until they release the ultimate version, not paying for all the DLC & Expansion, when I can wait and get it all for half the cost of the original game at release.

HUH? Deus ex not even out, have no idea how food the story will be, but name one good ubisoft game with a good story?

Mass Effect is OK, very cliche characters story and predictable. Same story as several other sci-fi movies/games.

.

Well since Deus Ex is published by Square Enix and developed by Eidos Montreal I don't see what Ubisoft has to do with anything.

RTS never gets a big showing. You have to like RTS games to care about RTS releases. In the last year we've had plenty of big name RTS titles like Supreme Commander 2, R.U.S.E., Dawn of War II and Chaos Rising, and of course: Starcraft 2. But if you don't play RTS games then why care? They're these strange games with strange controls and mechanics. It's not like Batman: AA or MW2 where you can hop into them from one myriad of other first or third person FPS or RPG games.
