Too many games coming out? Here's ten games you should hold off from buying just yet until the dust settles a bit.
So basically, avoid every other game this september besides Gears 3, Resistance 3, Dead Island and Dark Souls (Released in Japan. US/EU isnt until October)? EDIT: And as God said, the ICO/SotC Collection.
Yeah pretty much.
The way it read it sounded like he was saying to NOT play the original Splinter Cell because the HD remakes are coming up soon. Er, duh? Like someone who has not played the game EVER is suddenly going to play the old original and not wait a couple weeks? That made no sense.
Operation Raccoon City is a straight up run-and-gun shooter. So if I'm to get a RE game then it's going to be RE4HD. The author apparently has never heard of Driver on the PS1 before. He never made any mention of any of the previous games and compares it to The Wheelman and tell you to buy Forza instead, LOL. Very different game. Nothing wrong with the SC collection if you never played them before and want to play the better SC games. Warhammer 40K's design really is a little ridiculous. And come on, the name "Space Marine" sounds a bit desperate. Getting the SH collection. The PSP GOW games are great. If you haven't played them, get the collection. [ IMO ]
I never buy the collection titles Day 1 anyway. They generally go on sale somewhere for $20 after a 2 or 3 months anyway.
@NathanExplosion To be fair, Warhammer 40k is about 25 years old, and the Space Marines are pretty much the most popular group in the game world. That's not saying they didn't use that title to draw in purchases, but they honestly have the right to. Should point out, I don't really have much interest in the game itself though...although I do like what little we've seen on the upcoming (2014+?) Warhammer 40k MMO.
What bugs me is, Warhammer are the ones who should be aloud to use the term space marine. They came up with it long before it became the watered down mess that we have now. I haven't played the demo so Im not sure of the quality but from what I've seen the game plays very differently than Gears of War. So having Gears 3 launch is no reason to not buy Space Marines.
@lich120 they may have been the first to use it in a game but they didnt come up with the name. E. E. Smith Lensman series 1934–1954 Galactic Marines Robert A. Heinlein "Misfit" 1939 Space Marines Robert A. Heinlein "The Long Watch" 1941 Space Marines Robert A. Heinlein Starship Troopers 1959 Mobile Infantry but they werent even the first ones to use it in a game
Did you try the demo? Of what I saw it was an above average game. I'm considering buying it as a budget title. That is if time permits me to play it.
Why avoid The splinter Cell collection? I don't get it i think it's pretty good and even has 3D support.
@gamerdroid Unfortunately I haven't had time to check out the demo yet since I've been so wrapped up in deus ex. However, it looks like the coop play could be a ton of fun so Im definitely keeping it on my list of possible purchases. Also, death, thanks for the heads up lol. You're practically a encyclopedia of Space Marine knowledge =)
That's what I got.
Hey, Im not saying I agree.
You forgot the Ico & Sotc collection. Sadly I will not pass up the GOW collection V2. The 3 games you have listed other then Dark Souls (will have to wait until October) will be my purchases this month. Dead island is a maybe for now.
lol dark souls is gonna make me skip uncharted, gears, dead island, skyrim, and res 3 haha, i will beat it twice then play them
We're all different i suppose. Nothing wrong with that. The end of the year is gunna be jam for me
Uncharted is my favorite new IP this gen, but I'm more hyped up for Dark Souls. I've already had two Uncharted's these past few years, so I'm not chomping at the bit for the third game. Same with Gears 3. But I get to play Demon's Souls spiritual successor soon? That's another story. The only thing better would be a direct Demon's Souls sequel to reveal more of the mystery of the first game. Uncharted 3 I can wait a bit; but Dark Souls is day one for me.
Nah I'll play Uncharted 3 before anything.. Yes, even before MW2.1 (which is last on my list) of course!
***be reasonable [Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine] is a Gears of War clone*** /facepalm with the power of an a-bomb.
I'm not all that excited about Space Marine as I've got a bunch of other stuff going on in September, and October and November (and beyond) will be swamped with RAGE, BF3, and Skyrim, but that statement just made me want to kick a baby seal. Everyone is saying Space Marine copied Gears of War with the whole chainsaw sword thing, when in fact Cliffy B (in one of his rare moments of not being a complete tool) admitted that the idea for the chainsaw gun came from Warhammer. The over the top gore and feel of the game are all lifted straight out of games like Dawn of War and Dawn of War II, which is exactly how it should be.
exactly how is it a gears clone gears copied its chain guns from orcs and other things 40k has had chain weapons power armor power weapons big nasty gribblys for decades
his quote: "Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine A demo is available for this, and quite frankly the game holds up very well but come on, be reasonable it's a Gears of War clone and with Gears of War 3 mere weeks away, you'd be mad to choose this over Epic's more polished and feature laden effort. Once the dust has settled, this will be a great investment no doubt" after he said that i could not in good faith take him to being sarcastic or is he trying to be funny? "but come on, be reasonable it's a Gears of War clone" there is not enough pams to make it a complete facepalm based on his Opinion. Warhammer 40k is not a clone that is for sure.
This list sucks. Bodycount will be great, it's by the same guys that did BLACK. Nothing like Bulletstorm. Warhammer 40k Space Marine is not a Gears clone. You obviously never play the Warhammer series. If anything Gears borrowed from them. As for the HD collections they're defiantly worth it if your interested in replaying or playing for the first time.
"Warhammer 40k Space Marine is not a Gears clone. You obviously never play the Warhammer series. If anything Gears borrowed from them." 100% right you are an As a matter of fact Warhammer 40k's root's are over 30 years old. 31 years to be exact. Laserburn is a set of wargaming rules written by Bryan Ansell in 1980 if those did not know who Bryan is: Some elements of the Laserburn rules, such as power and dreadnought armour, bolt guns and jet cycles were carried forward and appear in Warhammer 40,000 by Games Workshop. Who Ansell worked for in the late 80s onwards. Bryan Ansell is a British role-playing and war game designer. He founded Asgard Miniatures before creating Citadel Miniatures in the late 1970s. remember Kids: Clifford Michael "Cliff" Bleszinski (born February 12, 1975 so 5 years after Cliff was born Warhammer 40k was already being created. Cliff was 5 yeas old when warhammer 40k was created. lmao..yea warhammer 40k is a clone of gears? my @ss it's a clone..lol
There are similarities as in being a third person shooter and weapons with chain saws, but beyond that I don't see the similarity at all.
"ro Evolution Soccer 2012 Just get FIFA 12 instead if soccer is your thing. End of story! No seriously, do you really need a new soccer game?" xboxerUS mentality, he don't know anything about the two games, but he has already made a choice...and worst, say to others to do the same.
@kikizoo, With that logic he might as well add Madden to the list. It's about as popular in Europe as rugby is here. And at least the rugby game might be good.
msxbox-world.com always has shit articles, remember when they didn't have xbox news, so they were writing about the PS3. They don't have news now, so they're writing shit like this!
WTF RE 4 HD is on the list? someone needs a swift kick in the cherries. Bodycount? Its BLACK's spiritual sequel + super powers. Its not perfect sequel to it, but it will do. Hopefully it could inspire EA to take a look at building a sequel to BLACK.
How about you keep your opinions to yourself MSXBOX-WORLD.COM!!! Gah, what a url! Haha
Well that is my plane, Dead Island and Gears is it for me
Why would we want to avoid such an awesome game?
Because we know it's just going to sap alllll our time. We've got to give the other games a chance..
Im definatly avoiding bodycount. Terrible demo...
This. Game was aids.
Lol, that's harsh, man. I think it would be more PC to call it an abortion.
its no better than DNF ill tell ya that even graphic wise.
I actually thought DNF was better then Bodycount. At lest you knew you wernt supposed to take DNF seriously.
It looked like there was something wrong with the resolution then i noticed some thongs can be shot through... So i guess it needed to look crappy to handle kind of destructible wood planks... I only liked the ammo thing , i get tired of having to click on the weapon during a huge gun fight, trying to get the ammo of another thats sitting on the floor next to it, and i die, thats the main reason i can never pasS a game without being killed once cause stupidity like that
It's a shame to see the developers of Black disappoint.
It's not 'the' developers of Black. It's 'a' developer of Black - Stuart Black, in fact, who even left Codemasters before the game was finished. 'The' developers of Black are still going strong making Burnout and NFS games as Criterion.
This is awful, poor ten developers....
Uh ? avoid the re hd port because some derivative crap named shooter raccon city is coming along ? Yeah right . "Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Just get FIFA 12 instead if soccer is your thing" Or not because different folks different strokes and pretty much everyone agrees the game is great this year . Does the author even care about soccer games or plain soccer anyway ? Or does he just repeat everyone's crap just because ?
I gotta agree with both the RE comment and FIFA. I'm surprised that madden 12 wasn't on the list. That franchise was so disappointing last year. And from what I heard in early reviews, it sounds like it got worse.
im gettin PES12 instead of fifa cuz they have more south american teams/cups
His excuse for not getting the rugby game is Lolworthy. "Get madden or WWE instead". WTF?
Silent Hill for me.
Agreed. I only get mad reading this drivel. "Nostalgia is most often left in the past because these old games simply don't cut it compared to what we have now." Yeah cause sooo many games now are doing what Silent Hill did only better.
Yeah, they don't make games like Silent Hill anymore. Even Silent Hill isn't like Silent Hill. ;-) I welcome the old games! My PS3 doesn't have backwards compatibility so It would be cool to play some old PS2 games in slightly higher resolutions.
I would definitely like to re play Silent Hill 2 and maybe Driver SF since online demo was kinda fun but the rest of games either I played long time ago or simply I'm not interested
More like pass up just about every HD collection.
And for the ignorant disagrees, I meant the article's list. I will be buying just about all of them. Unless you guys really just hate these remastered classics.
It's not ignorant disagrees if it sounds like you're suggesting to pass on every HD collection. Could have been a little more specific in your first post.
Really? If you actually read his comment and thought he wasn't mocking the author...you're insane!
Well, a) tone/sarcasm doesn't really carry over well in text and b) this is n4g, so it's really not too hard to imagine someone seriously believing this, or even just saying it to troll.
Agree with them accept RE4, Warhammer and GoW collection (if you haven't already played them)
I'm already avoiding these games as we speak.
I was ready to be all over the Resident Evil 4 HD re-release... then I saw the screenshots. The old PC version actually manages to look BETTER. This looks to be one of the worst HD re-releases we've gotten so far. To top it off, Capcom is asking 20 bloody dollars for the thing. I planned on getting it via a gameshare for $6... but even THAT is too much for this awful re-release. Also, I refuse to support Capcom after the whole canceling of Megaman Legends 3 and re-releasing a 5 month old game ordeal, but that is second to just how shoddy a port this is... Goddammit, Capcom! I want to like you and your games, but you make it so fucking hard!
I don't know if I'll ever support Capcom because they won't allow you to aim your weapons and walk in RE.
And it is attempts to cater to people like you that has ruined the Resident Evil franchise. Capcom is trying to cater to Gears / Uncharted fans with Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City.
I'm broke so I'm avoiding all of them. :(
Dude, what a bad time to be broke. Sell some blood or something.
yeah,it IS a bad time...i have the same problem...being unemployed and in few weeks will be a daddy.well,the latter is actually amazing^^ but my gaming will suffer xD
Well congrats on the kid coming.
You guys get paid to give blood? Here in Australia it's considered a free donation. :O
I've already got Gears Of War 3 and Dead Island pre-ordered. I'll consider Warhammer, the demo was pretty good. I don't know if it's worth the $60, may pick it up new when it drops to $40.
Well I wouldn't waste money on remakes with such a strong lineup of other games. Rise Of Nightmares is one on my buy list though.
C'mon, leave him be. His devotion to anything Xbox is kind of cute.
