Well, since AC: Brotherhood came out in late November, there's been virtually no new releases worth purchasing for nearly two months. But, thanks to the numerous 2010 delays we had, there's going to be a bunch of good games coming out from January through April of 2011. Here's just a sampling:
January 18: Little Big Planet 2, Mass Effect 2 (for you PS3 owners)
January 24: Dead Space 2 (played the demo for it, and it's pretty awesome. Loved the first game.)
February 15: Marvel vs. Capcom 3
February 22: Bulletstorm, Killzone 3
February 29: Fight Night: Champion (EA Sports first M-rated release, bloody as shit)
March 8: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, MLB 11: The Show (YAY BASEBALL), Dragon Age 2
March 22: Crysis 2
March 31: Team ICO Collection (with improved graphics!)
April 5: LA Noire (Team Bondi is teaming up with Rockstar for a 40s style detective open-world game)
April 19: Portal Fucking 2
April 26: Mortal Combat, Brink (crazy awesome looking FPS)
Fuck, that's a bunch of games. I'm most excited about Deus Ex, LA Noire, and Brink. But what else has everyone been playing?
I just got Vanquish from GameFly, and it's pretty awesome. Just imagine Gears of War, but you had rockets attached to your knees so you could slide around, and a batshit insane story that has Russians using a laser to destroy San Francisco, and you've got 8 hours before they do the same to NYC.
