Another year is upon us and the world or gaming throws us another slew of titles to keep us in front of our consoles and PCs. Many games are coming out this year and here are a few of them that I particularly want to play.
Soul Calibur 5 (X-Box 360, January 31)
Among the first releases of the year, is the latest in the Soul Calibur series. These games have been good in the past. I’ve been playing since The second in the series was released on GameCube. Fighters have always been a favorite of mine and this series ranks among my favorites.
Gotham City Impostors (XBLA, February)
The world of Batman has always been intriguing, and Gotham City Impostors adds to the intrigue. This downloadable game will allow you to create your own rogue Batman impersonator and explore Gotham City dishing out your own brand of vigilante justice. Release was pushed back to February for a few last minute refinements.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron (X-Box 360, Likely Q4 2012)
The sequel to 2010’s War For Cybertron promises to up the experience. Adding in new characters to the game such as Grimlock and combiners will add to the gameplay experience. The first game was pretty good and being a fan of Transformers means I’ll be sure to play this game for a while.
South Park: The Game (X-Box 360)
I’m going down to South Park, gonna have myself a time. Matt Stone and Trey Parker are actively involved in the development of this RPG to make sure it is the South Park experience. You will be able to make your own citizen of the quiet mountain town of South Park and interact with all the faces you’ve come to know for almost two decades.
Luigi’s Mansion 2 (Nintendo DS)
Luigi’s Mansion was one of my favorite games on the GameCube and in my opinion, a very under rated game. I was a bit disappointed to hear that the sequel would not be getting a full console release. Instead, the title will be relegated to handheld units. A game very deserving of a sequel so I will still be playing it. Would have been a nice excuse to finally go buy a Wii. Should still be promising but I think this sequel could have been given a better treatment.
