Umm, wut? Where the hell is Last Guardian on this list? Clearly fishing for hits. Ridiculous.
iXenon  +   871d ago
I guess if steering away from the obvious and doing research for the entries is "fishing for hits" then yeah...
morkendo23  +   870d ago
Umm, gave up hope for games i played since 2006/ gaming community filled with FPS,MMO now.
I know Crash bandicoot not on the list but rather be enjoying it now.

You say you "steered away from the obvious", yet you included FF verses?

I dont agree with Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX being on the list, the English VAs are already there and a lot of the translations are already done from the English versions of the PS2 games. It should be in NA/EU in the Summer or Fall the latest
SeekeroftheDawn  +   871d ago
Yeah, it looks like KH 1.5'll make it through. But seriously, I don't think we're ever going to see Versus XIII. Only in dreams.
iXenon  +   871d ago
The thing is, the English VAs were in KH Final Mix back in 2003 or whenever and that never came to North America.
Abash  +   871d ago
@iXenon

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix was a re-release with some bonus continent and changes, KH 1.5 HD ReMix is the remastering of KH and CoM and PS3 which is a console the series has never been on before. It'll definitely release in other regions for series exposure
Nitrowolf2  +   871d ago
yea its missing a few, and of course they want hits on the site, but I fail to see how they are doing it in a bad way that would be considered "fishing" (like writing an article meant to anger people)
iXenon  +   871d ago
Aside from Last Guardian, what do you think I missed?
Nitrowolf2  +   871d ago
Beyond Good and Evil 2 (IDK if its cancelled, but I thought Ubi confirmed it wasn't)

Half Life 2 Ep 3

Final Fantasy Type-0 It released in Japan in 2011, doubt we'll see anything about localization considering the PSP current support.

Prey 2
reported to be cancelled only to be confirmed as halted.

InSane
I know THQ cancelled its work on the project, but from what I understand the rights went back to Guillermo del Toro. Could possibly start work with another studio, either way I know the title wasn't gonna be released until 2014

Just some I could think off the top of my head

Nah those sites that are fishing for hits are the ones that make you click next all the time.
This list was all on one page and i only saw 1 ad, so imo not really fishing.

Besides, they did some research when the games where revealed and last shown.
So pretty decent article imo

How do you fish for hits by leaving something out in a list about "13 games you shouldn't expect to see this year"?

Also, you didn't mention ice cream in your comment. Fishing for agrees?
deno  +   870d ago
Probably never coming. It's getting the duke nukem and shenmue 3 treatment. Sadly of course.

BitbyDeath  +   871d ago
Damn, didn't know South Park got pushed back.
Was looking forward to that.
e-p-ayeaH  +   871d ago
Ground Zeroes not this year...i miss MGO dammit.
Xristo  +   871d ago
You could probably add The Elder Scrolls Online to that list.
jakmckratos  +   871d ago
WHy is south park on this list?? It's release date is not even 2 months away.
ZeekQuattro  +   871d ago
Probably because THQ is in financial trouble. They filed for Chapter 11 recently and unless something changes soon they will run out of funds. I'm just guessing though.
torchic  +   871d ago
uhm, Square Enix said Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PC & PS3 verions will release this year, and on the same day. on top of that we have seen footage of ARR for PS3, not much, but the footage is there.
crackforgangstas  +   871d ago
This article is kind of ridiculous, I'm sure that some of these are destined to release this year. I think they are just trying to generate hits here...
black911  +   871d ago
I want AGENT!!!!
claud3  +   870d ago
Watch dogs is all I want and GTA V
Conzul  +   870d ago
Actually I wouldn't mind if Watch Dogs was pushed up till the next Gen. That game looks to good to waste on current hardware.
claud3  +   870d ago
you know what mate i actually agree, why waste it on the current systems.

Mate i am happy to wait until 2014
stefan771  +   870d ago
I say if current hardware can handle it, which I reckon it could, release it for it.
1nsaint  +   870d ago
Ah man, southpark delayed to 2014... That sucks
jakmckratos  +   870d ago
take this article with a grain of salt dude...the release is only 2months away and the date still stands on all major retailers sites...this article s complete unfounded speculation
Sony360  +   870d ago
Speculation, yes. Unfounded, no.

JohnDread  +   870d ago
Ridiculous list...By the way, Ubisoft still lists Watch Dogs for 2013 in their press newsletter.
listenkids  +   870d ago
Realm Reborn is almost in beta, I see it releasing mid year.
Versus 13 potentially, depends on E3.

Everything else is give or take.
RockmanII7  +   870d ago
I have faith that Destiny will be released in 2013, wasn't it releasing this year part of Activision contract with Bungie? Also an easy one they missed was Star Wars 1313, no way that's a 2013 release.
Orionsangel  +   870d ago
I wouldn't even expect Watch Dogs on current gen systems.
stefan771  +   870d ago
It's been confirmed for current gen consoles

kalebpp  +   870d ago
Wait, so war devil isn't coming out this year?
1upgamer99  +   870d ago
I don't get why South Park, which was supposed to be released 3-5-2013 would be pushed back. I am sure the story has been written, and graphics that I have seen are just like the show not like its going to push the systems to the limits. So why almost a year delay...this is the Youtube that shows the release date. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Now the new trailers just say "coming soon".
Also Square says regarding FF14 basically they cant mess up this release or it will be the Final Fantasy, But man How many freaking years does it take to make a game. How much money must be going into this game. Man If Nintendo did this with the next Zelda I would go nuts. Here is that link to Squares comments. http://www.escapistmagazine...

I remember learning of Agent back in 2007. Quite a shame that we haven't heard anything yet. If you ask me, Rockstar has had too much on their plate and starting Agent might have been a mistake, since we won't hear anything about it for quite some time more.

As for Watch Dogs and Rainbow 6: Patriots, it would be nice to have some amazing games already prepared for the next generation consoles...but I want them now, darn it!
