Personally, i'm looking forward to Splinter Cell Conviction, Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2. Halo Reach looks good too, but I don't believe it will meet it's 2010 deadline somehow.

@Rob- Do you see any chance of Stargate Worlds coming out next year?

Thanks to SBIzokronus for the fantastic sig!

Heh, I hope it isn't called GTA V though.

Anyone here a big Nintendo gamer? I've never been in the Nintendo camp, but I imagine your looking forward to Mario Galaxy 2?

Just Mass Effect 2 right now (that I can think of off hand).

Here's to you as good as you are. Here's to me as bad as I am. As bad as I am, and as good as you are, I'm as good as you are, as bad as I am.

It's a stargate MMORPG thats been in development for awhile, it was not that far away from release last year but then the recession hit them really hard, all the investors dropped out, and they were unable to finish it. Now however, they have just got funding again and development has resumed.

Thanks to SBIzokronus for the fantastic sig!

But what about this Dante's Inferno?

Supposedly it's just a God of War ripoff with an Assassins Creed twist (it starts in Acre during the Thrid Crusade, and ends up in Hell). I hope Altair makes a surprise appearance Smile

Well I got interested in it because it was set in the poem of Dante Alighieri, which is my favorite book. I haven't tried it, the demo comes 2 weeks after on XBL in Latinamerica. What's the thing with GoW, then if this is a ripoff, then Saboteur is a ripoff of GTA, ChronoTrigger of FF, and then, Soul Calibur, Mortal Kombat, Dead or Alive, Tekken and King of Fighters creators must all be sued.
Just kidding, guess you're right but at least brings a new story to the Hack 'N' Slash games.

DAZ I'm sorry to tell you I heard it just got delayed (again) to 2011.

And I'm considering buying Bayonetta because I heard it's actually freakin ridiculous. Does anyone have it? If so, what your opinion?

Apparently the demo is a poor indication of how the real game is.

I heard it's not really that good, it's more like a movie than it is a game.

I also heard Dante's Inferno was a HUGE disappointment.

I had heads up for Dante but came to be a bad copy of God of War, thou it delivered some nice couple of hours of fun, stilll is repetitive as hell.
As to Heavy Rain, its just a movie in which you can change some parts of the outcome, still, didnt felt as revolutionary as they promised it would be.

It being like a movie is what I enjoyed most about the demo. Oh well, to each his/her own I guess.

I don't really get why Dante's inferno has gotten such a large amount of bad critique. While it sure does borrow mechanics from GoW, quite heavily, it does a great job in doing so. GoW is a great game, if another game successfully "copies" it, doesn't that also make that game great? The combat is fun and deep enough, without just getting messy (ninja gaiden 2 had an insane amount of useless combos), and it was rewarding to level up and buy new skills that were actually useful.

While the voice acting for Virgil, Dante and Beatrice weren't all that special, the animated cutscenes felt fresh and blended in neatly with the other story-telling elements, and the actual written dialogue never fellt out of place, and while the story of Dante going through hell just to save his beloved might be considered a bit weak, atleast it's something. And towards the end you get a feeling that it's bigger than just Dante and Beatrice. Besides, hell is the star here, and MAN! Some of those circles were very nicely designed, and the game had a bunch of epic moments. Especially riding Phlegyas into Dis, and crossing the Styx march. The environments felt true to the poem (just check out the drawings), and most games are, when developed, never given that attention to environment detail. They've done a good job at having each circle reflect each sin in a clever/sophisticated way (except for lust, perhaps)

Speaking of epic, you should take a listen to the soundtrack. Some of the most epic and frightening stuff i've heard. It's the same composer who has done the music for both bioshock 1 and 2.

I feel like I'm writing an essay on this now, but all I wanted to say was that the game has gotten far too little appreciation seeing the amount of (highly successful if you ask me) effort, time and creativity put into it. Most people (IGN and gamespot included) just seem to label it "GoW copy" and wave it off. The 6.5 rating given by gamespot was especially dissapointing. Now, wether you actually enjoyed the game or not doesn't really matter. Naturally, not everyone likes every game. My point is just that there needs to be some light shone on the stuff that's actually impressively well crafted.

Kudos to the one who bothered reading through this, no offense to anyone who dislikes dante's inferno. I just had to vent my thoughts on the game somewhere.

At this point I'm really just waiting for Halo Reach. Unfortunately this is the lapse year for Microsoft and all the good stuff comes out next year. I'm not really enthralled by anything yet. When E3 rolls around in April hopefully we get glimpses of some more entertaining material.

But for right now I'm perfectly content with MW2, Halo 3, AC2, and others. Don't plan on buying anything until Halo Reach or GTA San Andreas Stories.

Going back to this list, I'm changing things up a bit.

Army of Two is out, after seeing my buddies play it I feel like I don't need to get it any more.
Splinter Cell Conviction... I might wait until summer for that. Get it used.
PoP is still in.
Red Dead Redemption became a must buy after I read some more about it and watched some more videos.
STO, after playing a ten day trial... nah. Sure it captures ship combat perfectly... but the game is boring and grindy.
AvP is also out.

Really... I've got enough of a backlog that three games released over the next few months is more than enough.

I heard Red Dead Redemption is going to be one of the best games this year, and I also heard that AvP is only fun when playing as the aliens, including when online. Aliens have the best and most intriguing abilities, predators are a solid meh, and humans are what you'd expect in contrast to the others.

What's the story with Forgotten Sands? Is it a sequel to PoP 4 or continuing the Sands of Time Saga? Is it supposed to be good?

It's a continuation of the Sands of Time story, set somewhere between Sands of Time and Warrior Within.

Kotaku has a good article on it.

After seeing some videos of Red Dead Redemption, it is on my must-have list for this year. It looks like an improvement over GTAIV set in the Wild West, which can only mean good things.

Also, Heavy Rain's demo convinced me to buy it and so far its great. If you're not into QTEs I wouldn't recommend it, but otherwise its got a very interesting storyline and some crazy action scenes.

The Last Guardian. I have no idea of the release date but it's the reason I got a PS3 for my birthday.

Well spotted! The Last Guardian definitely has that Shadow of the Colossus ambience, because it's by the same creator. Fumito Ueda, #2 on my list of "People I Want To Give A High-Five To". Almost no information other than the jaw-dropping trailer (I guess I'm pretty biased Smile ). I'm sure it'll be worth the wait though. Big smile

I just read some more Halo: Reach reviews for the BETA that drops May 3rd, and apparently the multiplayer is almost as good as Battlefield's and maybe even better than Modern Warfare's. Seriously, they've completely revamped the series, and for the better. It's apparently so good, in fact, that it's turned the head of gr's most notorious Halo-Hater, so you know it has to be awesome. Here's two articles about the BETA:

it's pretty bad, because it's just a God of War rip-off. it doesn't live up to GoW...and most of the demo has boobs just right in the camera. lol
