With Christmas just around the corner, a tonne of very good AAA games are coming out. Which ones do you guys think you'll buy? or have already bought?

Games I've bought:
Gears of War 3: Disappointed that they didn't expand on certain story elements, but was still a very fun game.
RAGE: Sadly, it was surprisingly average. I expected far more from id.
Battlefield 3: There's still this bizarre lag between when you get hit with bullets, and when the game registers damage. Not a latency issue issue either. Outside of that and a throwaway campaign, the multiplayer is ridiculously fun. It'll definitely be something I'll be playing for a long time to come.

Games I'm going to buy:
Batman: Arkham City
Uncharted 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
TES 5: Skyrim
Halo Anniversary
Assassin's Creed: Revelations
Saints Row 3
and finally LoZ: Skyward Sword.

Mine is pretty small because I've been trying to avoid games and do some uni work or hang out with friends instead >_<

So far It's only:

Skyward Sword
Mass Effect 3 (that is coming out this year right? O_O

I think there was alot more but brain isnt working right now >_<

There are a couple of 3DS games I want but i've not looked at release dates (im waiting for a flashcart and a 3DS lite)

Nah, Mass Effect 3 is coming out March 9th of next year. After the travesty that was Dragon Age 2, I'm quite weary of Bioware games now. It'll likely be great though.

Did you see the leaked beta for it? There's three modes: RPG Mode (can choose conversation options and shooting is normal.) Shooter Mode (Conversations are automatically chosen and shooting is normal.) and Conversation Mode (can choose convos and shooting is easy.)

Good call on waiting for the 3DS. It's really obvious that Nintendo's next redesign (or 10 redesigns) will incorporate that second analogue nub. The current add-on is really ugly and makes the 3ds alot bigger than it should be.

When that redesign goes on sale, I'll deffinetely pick it up as well as the Ocarina of Time remake, Starfox remake and RE: Revelations.

A friend of mine was looking forward to Battlefield 3...until he found out that the origin thing scans your hard drive for pirated games. And he has A LOT of pirated games xD

It actually hasn't been found exactly what info Origin sends back to EA. The fact that it sends any info at all greatly disgusts me though.

Regardless, what would EA do? Say "Hey, we broke the law by illegally spying on you and you've got pirated games!" The good ol' Americans will hit them with a number of class-action lawsuits and they'll be forced to remove that feature of Origin. Same thing happened with Securom.

I may go kick up a fuss with EA's customer support, force them to give me a free copy of Dead Space 2 on PC or something.

Battlefield 3 is slowly getting me hooked. Only got it yesterday, but I can see the future hours of my life already disappearing.

Incoming games for me are Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, this is more for my sister than me. But it'll still be the greatest Wii game ever made.

Football Manager 2012, which is another life-sucker that dominates my existence. And Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Other than that, there's still a backlog of games I need to play, since uni just dominated my life during October.


Btw, good avatar Cytomander. Reinhard, right?

No joke, Battlefield 3 is going to eat up a ridiculous amount of time. I've put about 7 hours in, and I'm only a quarter of the way through the Assault kit.

and yea, I only just started watching LotGH, great so far.

For everyone buying Skyward Sword once exams are over Ozgameshop.com is selling it for $52 pre-order with free shipping, it will probably arrive a couple of days after it's out in australia but you'll be doing exams anyway and save yourself $50

A doesn't stand for anything, its like grades, A = good, or movies where you can have B-grade movies, AAA is saying that it's not just A its a triple A, a MUST HAVE, MUST OWN title

If you have a PC that is good enough to play it, then PC all the way. Otherwise the Xbox 360 and PS3 version are pretty much identical. There's a glitch on the 360 version with the way the texture streams, so sometimes the game doesn't look as good, but there's also a glitch on the PS3 version where after the save file goes up 5 megs, the game becomes really unstable (doesn't happen to everyone).

Well, yea, but it depends on the specs of the laptop. I'm guessing that it won't be powerful enough and that you'll have to get it on 360/PS3.

Sword of the Stars 2 was released recently, and it was a total disaster. To say that the game was half-finished would be an overstatement. It's disappointing as I really like the 4x space genre and you don't get that many of them, but oh well.

I ordered Ass's Creed Revelations and Skyward Sword. I only need to get Halo Anniversary, and I've also decided to pick up WWE '12 cause I've heard that it is great.

Ok, so I finished Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Really good game, I really liked it. There still some issues with Ezio jumping to the wrong thing thanks to the automated parkour, and I still really hate the 100% sync stuff for missions, but overall it was very fun. It's good to get some closure on the Altair and Ezio characters.

I've also been playing Modern Warfare 3. Single player was good, albeit short, but the multiplayer, while not bad, is just more of the same as MW2 (but even more unbalanced with worse maps).

Onto Uncharted 3!

^I have the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 3 and have only played it for at least 1 hour in total. Unfortunately there seems to be some lazy programming with the disc as it constantly abuses the blu ray lenses. The disc activity is always ongoing despite being in menu mode and doing nothing on screen.

So much wear and tear for the ps3 D:

mmm another month to go until I can finally play FFXIII-2! Avoiding the internet for spoilers is so hard because of my curiosity...
