It’s that time of the year every gamer looks forward to, the blockbuster gaming season. Once summer starts to leave us we welcome the release of many games we have been looking forward to. Sure games are released on a weekly basis but traditionally the years biggest releases are held off in hopes of winning a spot in your holiday spending sprees and gift lists.
I will become fairly anti-social over the next few weeks and will dedicate every spare moment I have on playing video games. To free up some extra time for gaming I will deprive myself of sleep and stay home on Saturday nights. The gaming madness has already begun with Borderlands 2 and Dishonored. I’ve been playing the heck out of Borderlands 2, seriously it’s gaming crack which has forced me to place Dishonored on the back burner for now. Next up is Medal Of Honor Warfighter followed by Assassins Creed 3, Assassins Creed 3 Liberation, Halo 4 and Black Ops 2.
2012 has been an interesting year for me in games. Many of the early releases I was banking on to be favorites disappointed while a few gems I didn’t expect all that much from have snuck into my head and begged for attention. I’ve already starting compiling my best of the year list in my head and I have to say I don’t ever remember a PSN or Arcade title ever ending up as a contender for my game of the year. It’s also been a few years since a military shooter was in the running based solely on its unique storytelling. The dark horse contenders are Papo And Yo and Spec Ops The Line. Also in the running is Mass Effect 3 and The Darkness 2.
So geeks what games are you looking forward to? We’d love to hear what you guys are playing. Feel free to hit me up on twitter @jadedbutlovely3 and happy gaming!
