Games I'm lookin forward to...

Deus Ex: Human revolution
What: Set in the future, human augmentation is rampant, cool shit happens. That's all i really know about the plot lol.
Why: Looks like a fantastic mix of RPG and FPS elements. Also, promises great things in terms of diverse playstyles. Assaulting, Stealth, Hacking etc. all seem like genuinely possible ways to play the game. Unlike say, Oblivion, where stealth was pretty much useless for 75% of the game.

Batman: Arkham City
What: Gotham City has been taken over by villians (Pretty sure it's the Riddler, and that dude is fuckin bad ass), as the goddamn batman hop over there and kick some ass.
Why: The first game is fantastic. Like, you actually feel like you're the Goddam Batman! Nothing feels better than taking down a room full of bad guys without anyone seeing you. I haven't finished it yet, but setting up traps is just so much fun. The sequel should be fantastic.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
What: Everyone should already know about this.
Why: Dragons. Fucking DRAGONS! FUCK! And  Oblivion was fantastic, if limited, and Bethesda learns from their mistakes. So skyrim is going to be amazing. (As a side note, they invented a fucking language for the dragons! Like, creatures in the wilderness will talk dragon to you, and it can actually be translated!)

What: You're a Ninja with magic powers, who was framed for the murder of the empress you were sworn to protect. A rat plague has brought society to the brink of collapse, and killed something like 80% of the population.
Why: This game threatens to explode my head with its sheer awesomeness. The variation in playstyles is amazing. Every single scenario can be approached in any way you want. You can do every single level without killing a single enemy, even your 'target' can be left alive if you think he deserves it. If you run in and butcher guards, you might miss a conversation between them that reveals some secret you can use to make things easier later. Look at the game informer website on dishonoured. Its fantastic.

Assassins Creed: Revelations
What: Climb buildings, fuck people up. Also, explore an awesome alternate history.
Why: The series has me hooked. The first game was almost unplayable at times, but the story had me playing for hours at a time. Each installment has definably better gameplay. And the story of AC:2 blew my mind. I'm buying this game on day of release. That's how much i want it.
