Meanwhile PixelJunk Shooter 2 is going in the sin bin. Permanently. So for now I’m just going to highlight a few select games that are going to be epic this year and what I’ll be hoping to play:
As I write this, the game is on its way in the post. I wasn’t originally going to buy it until it had come down in price, but it’s been a combination of not wanting to stumble across any spoilers, the fact the game is three times larger than the original, everyone’s freaking out about how good it is and that the PS3 version is the definitive version… of course I’ve had to jump on the bandwagon and offer up a few notes to the guys at Valve in exchange for a copy of the game. I couldn’t resist.
This one’s going to be a pre-order as I absolutely loved the first game. That alone justifies its inclusion on this list. Let’s just say that improved graphics, storyline, new abilities, and tons more gameplay sweeten the deal? Access to Uncharted 3’s multiplayer beta seals the deal!
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
If I could only choose to buy one game this year, it would be Uncharted 3. From Uncharted’s humble origins in 2007, to worldwide anticipation in 2011- each game simply oozes quality. Beyond simply being ‘just another franchise’, so much love, blood, sweat and tears go into creating each game that they’ve become more than just games, they’re masterpieces (my opinion).
