    Here we discuss vidya games that you want.

    Portal 2 - obvious

    Brink - woah it looks like a fun fps, the devs are very open about explaining how the gameplay works so they're obviously very confident about it, which is way better than making a "gameplay" trailer and obscuring it with god awful video effects

    Serious Sam 3: HOLY SHIT

    Tribes: Ascend
    : just take my god damned bank account

    LA Noire

    Batman Arkham City


    VIDYA GAMES THAT I HAVE A CLOSE WATCH ON:

    Crysis 2
    : The MP demo was alright, I'm mainly looking forward to the SP and the editor. I seem to be the only person who actually enjoyed sp portion of the crysis series, so the people who disagree with me insist i do not have fun

    Battlefield 3: Battlefield Vietnam was cool, bf2 was alrigth when it worked which was never, and 1942 hell yea. I hope DICE revives themselves with this. Not much info has been released. If it's just bad company 2 then i will be so furious i will punch a cactus. The SP video they released earlier kind of looks like it, so oh noes.
    if i'm allowed to spam "enemy boat spotted" then it has my money

    Dead Island: Waiting for more info, but yay a freeroam zahmbee game!

    Homefront: Looks okay, I think. The MP has "call of duty" slapped all over it, with the 10+ XP BLAH BLAH BLAH being spammed all over your fucking screen because you took 2 footsteps. This also happens in crysis 2 :mad:
    edit: I just watched some videos of the sp, looks like cod's sp where you play it once and never again. yawn.

    Pokemans black and white
    : i need to buy this aaaaa

    FireFall: http://www.joystiq.com/2011/03/12/firefall-preview/


    I have too many fps games on that list, blarg.


    I still need to buy mass effect 1 and 2, I don't know why I haven't played these yet but I need to.
    Burnout 3 needs to be for the pc, it is the goty all years

    Now that I got a new rig, I'll be looking into Crysis 2... I'll defiently want to get ME1+2 because I've never played 'em...

    But basically the Defient buys for this year are:

    Portal 2: Love puzzles, love puzzle games, love portal.

    Guild Wars 2: Guild wars 1 was amazing, but was more of Arena Nets Coming out game, now that they have a reputation in the industry, they are bound to deliver an AMAZING game for Guild Wars 2. I follow this game just about as much as Portal 2 and TF2, and from what I'm seeing, is AMAZING. (for those who don't know, GW1 was a Buy the game, free to play online MMORPG by ArenaNet, worth looking into if you want a cheap MMO to play, not only is the gameplay great, the graphics are amazing for its time, and the music... well I can't describe the music, its just THAT AWESOME)

    The Witcher 2: Assasin of Kings

    Im only on Chapter III of The Witcher, and the story is amazing.


    Homefront

    I'll see what the reviewers say about it, but I'll probably get it for the Steam summer megasale.

    I bought The Witcher only because The Witcher II looks amazing...
    guess I'd better get started.

    And the list in no particular order:
    - Portal 2
    - Mass Effect 3
    - Diablo 3
    - Guild Wars
    - Skyrim
    - Dragon Age: Origins (I'll buy it when I have time)

    I pre-ordered Diablo 3 a year or two ago, and forgot the receipt.

    :(

    Ooo, tough one.

    Probably:
    - Portal 2 - Portal was amazing, this looks 3 times better
    - Mass Effect 3 - Need to get 1 as well, only played 2
    - Homefront -the story seems interesting (apart from the fact that it's just america america and more america) and the ideas in multiplayer seem good as well, if not highly reminiscent of Frontlines Fuel of war
    - Brink - looks like loads of fun, and I've yet to see an amazing FPS free running game
    - Star Wars: Old Republic - I've been tossing up between this and GW2 for a good MMO, but I think i'm going to go with this one purely on the fact that everyone else I know is getting it... And you can be a smuggler... And it's star wars...
    - Firefall - It's free, it looks interesting... Yeah...
    - Skyrim - Once again, peer pressure. Though I did really enjoy the freeness of the series and the depth of the world.
    - L.A. Noir - for once a game about America not about how macho awesome they are
    - Scrolls - come on... It's Mojang
    - Episode 3 - it's bound to come out some day

    It's really annoying that this is the year of my HSC (i'll actually try and be studying for once) and there are so many amazing games coming out. But at the end of the year, i'll have three months cycling some part time work, gaming and taking the occasional breath of fresh air.
    *Looks at huge expensive list...*
    Maybe a lot of part time work

    If you haven't pre-ordered Portal 2, then you aren't a real person. However, just because everyone's already pre-ordered it, that isn't an excuse for leaving it off the list.

    My roommate is waiting on pre-ordering, not sure why, might be because he didn't have the cash at the time, but yea...

    I may not have a computer that can run it, in which case, preordering it is bad when it will be on sale in a couple months.

    You still aren't a real person. Enslaving you would be justified.

    Battlefield 3 - NOT a COD clone or BFBC2 clone. Frostbite 2 engine, 64 player PC. Need a new desktop PC! My clan have been waiting for this since BF2. We like shooting & blowing things up.

    Firefall - Looks good & hopefully will be good for clan type FPS play. It's gonna be free, so no problem with empty wallets! Plenty of info coming out now from PAX east 2011.

    Black Prophecy - Looks like it could be a good space sim, MMO type game. In beta now. I'd describe it like EVE with pilot-able ships.

    Mass Effect 3, Brink, Dead Space 2(getting it soon), Maybe Dead Island if the gameplay can deliver, Human Revolution(another maybe), Red Orchestra 2:Heroes of Stalingrad (surprised no one else has mentioned this), Rage(looks good but I probably won't bite), Portal 2...

    I'm probably not getting half of those.
