Looking at this past year, it featured some truly great games within the first three months, but the first quarter of 2013 will put 2012 and every single previous year to shame with its currently scheduled list of releases.
I'm really looking forward to The Last of Us, but it pains me that I'm still not seeing and mention of The Last Guardian anywhere.
Insane I have WiiU games to buy and the Last of Us and Beyond:Two Souls
And Agent? And FFVXIII? :( I'm getting The Last Of Us and God Of War Ascension day 1. And Bioshock Infinite.
It will be at TGS 2012. http://playstationgang.com/... http://www.vg247.com/2012/0...

I cannot wait for Crysis 3. getting Crysis 3 and God of War: Ascension first day. might also get The Last of Us first day.
We here this same crap every year, and its always abunch of BS.
Yo u know whats coming out Ni no Kuni :)
And we won't see you for a month after it comes out.
We'll see lol
According to certain people, that is a casual game because it's cartoony. I'm looking forward to that game nonetheless.
I think the art style is really cool. It really makes it stand out against other RPG's.
I love the art style too. It's what caught my attention initially and then I saw the gameplay and I was sold!
The art style looks amazing, I showed a friend of mine the trailer and gameplay of it. He was like omg this games looks amazing like it literally looks like an Anime that you can play. The art style and graphics are that good
Give Wind Waker or Okami to a casual gamer and see how far they can get. Cartoon visuals don't equal casual games they just help attract a casual audience, anyways all that really matters is that the game is fun
The lighting on the world map caught my eye :)
its an JRPG from LEVEL 5 do u really think its casual? xd just becasue its cartoony doesnt mean its for casuals.... the game art is simply perfect...it was made from ghibli studios the best movie animes makers to date
why are companies doing this to us? way too much good stuff coming out so close together!
blame quarterly reports...everything is released to make profits for that quarter look as high as possible. It's a numbers game my friend. Funny how by this time...more companies haven't started taking another route on this. Also it is MOST LIKELY( not confirmed) that this is the last spring of this generation on consoles so have to roll out stuff early enough that the newer machines don't ruin your sales numbers.
Agreed, most the games i really want are coming out in the first quarter. 2013 will be a good year.
If PS4 and Xbox 720 launch, it will be an insane year.
Yea but don't know if they really are, it seems likely.
I hope PS4 and Xbox 720 don't launch in 2013, i can't afford it. There are too many great games releasing between now and well into late 2013, my wallet is already runinng on empty
It'd be suicide to launch a current gen AAA title towards the end of next year. That is why so many of these games are slated for the first part of the year. Normally we'd see huge releases like Gears, Tomb Raider and Bioshock lean towards a November release date. Once we all start seeing what these next gen games have to offer, I think we are all going to be gearing up for that, which would mean some current gen games might be lost in the mix.
most consoles come out in november so if the big games come out anytime before that, they'll do just fine.
Once everyone sees the games and what the new consoles can do, people will want them. Do you not remember all the hype for games like Gears Of War and Killzone 2? People held off on buying games so they could get the new consoles and new games. Why would I waste $60 on a game for a console that is about to die? I'd rather spend that $60 in part to pay for a new console or to buy a new game for the console. The closer we get to the release of these new consoles, the less current consoles and current console games are going to sell. Why do you think these huge AAA titles are getting rushed releases before E3? Think about it.
The current gen consoles won't "die" as soon as next-gen starts. It's not like everything just stops. I highly doubt that most gamers will jump right into next-gen considering the economy and the issues this gen had at start up. Price tags, hardware issues and so on.
no they wont die...but it will for sure take a HUGE chunk out of sales
Exactly, that's why the 1st 3 to 4 months of next year is gonna be epic. And most of the major publishers do not want to get outshined by E3 of 2013 because of a certain revolution may unfold. That's why its a pack 1st quarter. I dunno why people are disagreeing with you. Probably because its more likely MS will show off new hardware than Sony next year.
***"Why would I waste $60 on a game for a console that is about to die?"*** Because the game is good? That's why I would buy a game at the end of a console's life cycle anyway. Besides not everyone rushes out and buys a new console on launch day. Some people wait a year or two after the consoles releases because the software library should be deep by then, a price cut could possibly take place by then, and any issues with hardware should be fixed by then.
@Outside Yeah but honestly, that's for the casual and it doesn't relate to people like us the hardcore gamers that almost literally have to buy it at launch and save up money even if they're favorite game gets released for the PS3 and Xbox. But I will have to disagree with @Chunky Lover on this one, part of what what you said at least. When the 360 made its debut back in 05 I remember Sony pushing there games harder than ever, big release titles were being made for the PS2 as well. Even after the PS3 came out Sony made sure that big last gen franchises were being seen on the PS2 even though they were being advertised for the Xbox and PS3. And Sony did this for a while, and believe it or not... it actually worked, software and games sales kept strong for the cheaper and far less power PS2 and Sony kept this stride going for awhile and even outselling the Xbox 360. Sony's momentum slowed down shortly after the Xbox started producing games that just weren't capable of running on the PS2. Now will this continue after 8 years on the market next year? I think so, MS will push and still support software for the old 360 but probably not as long as Sony did with PS2. What I think'll happen is MS will slowly start to move content over to the new Xbox like DLC hitting the 720 first and the 360 will get it a month later. Then a month is 3 months 4 months 6 months a year and eventually not getting it at all. And the only way of getting it is purchasing a brand new 720.
Well I personally don't buy consoles at launch. You never know what hardware issues are going to pop up and more times than not the launch titles don't justify a $300-$400 purchase on day one.
You try too hard and its obvious, LOL.
