Those really are the "best" shooters for 2013
Also here is an article talking about a 2013 release for Battlefield 4 release date, and it has been confirmed by EA http://www.computerandvideo...

"those really are the best" noob it's your opinion not a fact. Where is mw4?
uneasiest  +   1136d ago
MW4 has not been confirmed.
DeadlyFire  +   1135d ago
Woah wtf at comment above me. You know that CoDMW4 shit is coming. Stop BSing. Its not announced, but its definitely confirmed.
Murad  +   1137d ago
Battlefield 4 I thought was confirmed as far as my sources told me? Actually I suggest you should check out Bioshock, Xcom and Blacklist, they look great. I do agree about Gears tough.
guitarded77  +   1137d ago
So you don't like games eh? You do realize this is a gaming website, right?

And some of those games look pretty promising. I'm looking forward to Bioshock Infinite (Bioshock 4 as you call it/shows how well versed in the series you are), Killzone Mercenaries, Gears of War and at least the Battlefield 4 beta... if not the full game.

Tired of generic shooters. Need more variety in game genres.
HammadTheBeast  +   1136d ago
He's probably waiting on the next Call of Duty, which will have massive new changes like a couple new streaks, and...wait for it...something that makes a YouTube intro for you in your "CoDCasting" crap.

Top 10: Most Anticipated Shooter Games of 2013
Without even looking at the list I'm sure it's full of games released in 2012 but with a different number after them!

looks at list........and for me that list is CRAP!

What I'm looking forward to in 2013
Arma 3
Metro Last Light
DayZ Standalone
Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm
Hard Reset DLC
and a few surprises!!!
MattyG  +   1137d ago
1. Battlefield 4 was confirmed, just not for 2013 (although it's possible)
2. Crysis 3 actually looks alright, better than 2 at least
3. Bioshock 4?? When did this happen?
4. Killzone Mercenaries looks good from what has been shown.
5. Xcom- I agree, they lost me after the sixth delay.
6. Lost Planet 3- barely any footage released.
7. TCRS6P- How is this Vegas 2.0?? Not even the same characters, it's been about 5 years since the last R6 game.
8. ARMA 3- not a PC gamer, can't comment.
9. Blacklist- looks like they're trying something new, but not going back to the stealth roots.
10. Gears Judgement looks unnecessary, but fun.

I'm guessing you're not a shooter fan? Yeah...
BertlSenix  +   1136d ago
Beta is in fall 2013 starting...So BF4 is confirmed
And a Battlefield Beta is superior to anything "Full" anyway.

battlefield 4 is coming out , you have bad taste when it comes to fps... how could you "meh" those games?
FunkMacNasty  +   1136d ago
Zuperman - do you even pay attention to gaming or are you just on the internet so you can be a negative troll?

Just for the record,
1. Battlefield 4 was confirmed back in the late summer by EA.. as a matter of fact they announced the BF4 Beta key would be available with the limited edition of MoH:Warfighter.

2.Bioshock "4" doesnt exist. It's Bioshock Infinite, and if we're counting installments, it will be the 3rd game in the franchise.

3. We know very little about the upcoming rainbow 6 game, so I'm not sure how you know that it will be no different then R6 vegas which released like 5 years ago.

4. To evrything else you decided was "meh", well that's your opinion. But since the article was about shooters, I'm guessing you just dont really like shooters. I'm sure you could find an article about how PSABR got some low review scores to troll on instead of this one.

List is missing some key titles that most eyes have not even seen yet.

Star Wars 1313, and Bungie's Destiny should make a cut or honorable mention. Even without much to go on at the moment. Those two titles are going to be big.

Turtle Rock has an FPS in development.

Valve has Half-Life 3 coming at somepoint before next Mayan Atun. haha Seriously though with their new "console" I expect a big Valve release on Source engine 2. What better game than this one?

I personally expect Prey 2 to reappear in 2013/2014 and for DOOM 4 to splash onto the new consoles coming.

Those and well a few others that have not gotten a bit spotlight just yet. E3 will reveal most of what the year has coming to it. GDC should offer a small glimpse.
USMC_POLICE  +   1137d ago
I'm still very content with bf3 and all my DLC well into 2014 lol. Killzone vita yes please!
LordMe  +   1137d ago
Only one on that list I am getting is Killzone: Mercenaries.

Though I do think it is fitting that Splinter Cell gets on a shooter list. Not much of a stealth game anymore.
tubers  +   1137d ago
Hope it's not another Unit 13 (no story) nor another CoDBOP (crap campaign).

The "Mercenary" name is full of bad vibes.. it sounds like a Unit 13/CoDBOD

..and no cinematic in game scenes have been shown.. :'(

Reeks of low budget.

I hope KZM kicks my ass and proves me wrong.. but it just doesn't look good (past the graphics in a corridor)
Riderz1337  +   1136d ago
Are you seriously that retarded. All we have seen is a trailer and don't forget this is Guerilla Games and Cambridge studios making the game NOT GOD DAMN NIHILISTIC.
NukaCola  +   1137d ago
Killzone Mercenary has a pick up and play feel like how Unit 13 or COD has just from the name, yeah..but let us not forget. This is developed by Guerrilla themselves, not some outside company so we can be pretty confident this will be a good game nevertheless. I hope it turns out well as it could be something epic.
stone_cold  +   1137d ago
i think CRYSIS 3 is the most anticipated shooter of 2013
Grimhammer00  +   1137d ago
So....I play on PS3. That's my bag.
So what's Dice doing to eliminate input lag in bf4?
cpayne93  +   1137d ago
Input lag on ps3 for bf3 is gone now. They patched it out.
tee_bag242  +   1137d ago
I'll be surprised if BF4 even makes it to the current consoles. I've heard its being build in a new engine with next gen in mind.
Hicken  +   1137d ago
Why would they be moving on to a new engine when they just debuted the Frostbite 2.0 this year?
krazykombatant  +   1136d ago
I'm not gonna bother buying it if it still have the 12v12 player count. I needs to be upped otherwise its not worth buying it outside of the PC.
cpayne93  +   1137d ago
You don't play as the Helghast in Killzone on Vita, you play as a mercenary, who has only been shown attacking Helghast so far.
doogiebear  +   1136d ago
So? Who cares who u use?
cpayne93  +   1136d ago
Did you read the article? They said you play as the Helghast in Killzone Mercenary.
doogiebear  +   1136d ago

So? Not worth the time to correct it.
cpayne93  +   1136d ago
...So? Not worth your time to correct me.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   1137d ago
The new title of Guerrilla Games, which we don't know anything about, is my most anticipated shooter.
FlyingFoxy  +   1137d ago
Half Life 3 likely to be released or shown off next year on Source 2, Doom 4 also likely.

Can't wait personally, Valve make way better shooters than just about any other dev, especially against overrated ones like Halo.

PC will show consoles who's boss like 2004 all over again. Love to see what they do with L4D3 on Source 2.
turgore  +   1137d ago
Keep dreaming bro. Thats what we say every year.
BattleAxe  +   1137d ago
Half Life is the most overrated series I've ever played. Can someone tell me why they think it is sooooo good? The levels are long and drawn out, the aliens look stupid, and the majority of the enemies that you fight all look the same and sound the same. Not to mention that there is barely any story telling in the game whatsoever. I'm sure that Valve themselves don't understand why the series is so well liked by a handful of rabid fans.
Swiggins  +   1136d ago
You obviously didn't play Halflife 2 when it first came 2002.

Jaws. Hit. The. Floor.
akaakaaka  +   1137d ago
the new GG(not the vita one) i hope for next gen ..

i will eventually get metro and bioshock and i will like to play arma 3 but don't have a gaming pc...

Bioshock 3 is what I'm excited for. The latest footage kind of disappointed me, but I'm still hyped.
Grimhammer00  +   1137d ago
Screw all these games I already have prepaid.

Dice you sons of a beatches! Where's my Mirrors Edge 2!!!!! For the love of all that is holy to EA & Dice - give me ME2!!!

Battlefield 4?

oh you mean Battlefield: "re adding features from previous battlefields and marketing them as new with intense sunglare" 4

The only thing missing is dubstep.

Anticipated? not by me.
#12 (Edited 1137d ago ) | Agree(7) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply
tee_bag242  +   1137d ago
lol so true about dubstep

your comment reminded me of Forza Horizon, what a fail to my favorite franchise.
krazykombatant  +   1136d ago
What the new one needs is environments that have more impact on gameplay and obviously consoles need a higher play-count which is why i'm hoping it will come out on the next Sony and MS consoles. But if they a good version on the wii U i might just get it on that.
Zha1tan  +   1135d ago
What it needs is to go beyond previous battlefields.

It needs to add dozens of vehicles, havefull naval, land and air warfarewith dozens of vehicles in each category.

basically in terms of scope they need to go from 1942 and expland from there in a modern day setting.

There just was not enough content in BF3 for me.
bens  +   1137d ago
My list of pc games to get in 2013 so far:

Bioshock Infinite

Metro Last Light

Crysis 3

Rise of the triad remake.
Bladesfist  +   1137d ago
I want ARMA 3, DayZ brought me to ARMA 2 and I have found I enjoy simulators over more arcade shooters, planning a massive three pronged attack on an enemy base, snipers on the towers, rocket fired into the base to get them all to flee out, heavy machine guns. A lot of people will just call this downtime as there is not much action going on but it's the best part of the game for me.
Detoxx  +   1137d ago
BF3 is only using 30% of the Frostbite 2 engine. BF4 however will use 70-80% of the engine, DICE confirmed this. Just imagine the game, it will be epic
Bladesfist  +   1136d ago
That's just marketing talk. How does one use a percentage of an engine?
Detoxx  +   1136d ago
Once you've pushed an engine to the edge there are "2" things you can do: 1. Upgrade the engine or 2. Keep re-using the engine (Look at COD). So I really don't know why people disagreed. *Edit: 2 things

Am I the only one who thinks that Crysis 3 looks like DLC for Crysis 2? Or it's just hasn't been much time for a large leap in visuals?
sdozzo  +   1136d ago
Half Life 3? I wish.
Triggytrolls  +   1136d ago
I wish RTS sold well on consoles. I love strategy games.
ThatHappyGamer  +   1136d ago
Killzone 4 maybe on PS4.
Yukicore  +   1136d ago
Rainbow Six : Patriots and Splinter Cell Blacklist are on my most anticipated "list". Arma 3 might be great too, hopefully a mod like DayZ will come out for it soon :D

MODERN WARFARE 4!!! If it changes the industry like Black Ops 2 did, then its definately the game to get excited about.
wtfbbq8  +   1136d ago
America is all about Shooting games, what a shame. More RPGS plz
sonicsidewinder  +   1136d ago
Implying Splinter Cell is a shooter...

Oh wait it IS a shooter now.

RIP good games.
MYSTERIO360  +   1136d ago
Yes SCBL is more of a shooter this time but their is stealth sections in the game. They also said that not all the levels in the game will play out as a shooter only. Their are come vids on this on Youtube so lets hope they keep their word.
metroidfusion2  +   1136d ago
Can't wait to see what battlefield 4 for the wii u looks like and the next call of duty and I barely play shooters and the west needs less shooters
