Five games you won't buy this winter... but should

OXM: "Winter 2011's strong line-up is great news for gamers, of course, but it's not so great news for games. Let's face it: with so many thunderous hype-trains jostling together, not everybody's going to make it to the New Year in one piece. As you peel open that freshly minted copy of Battlefield 3 and inhale the new-game whiff, spare a thought for the commercial middleweights - the worthy specimens who don't have millions of marketing dollars behind them, or a massive existing fanbase, or dragons you can freeze."

Ill be picking up Saints Row 3. Game looks wicked fun.

WolfLeBlack2711d ago

Agreed. Any game that lets me shoot innocent civilians out of a cannon is alright in my books.

Cpt_kitten2712d ago

Apart from Saints Row which is highly recognised, I would have to say that the other 4 are hardly household names for most people.

A lot of people will be buying Saints Row 3, but I think many people will pass over Lord of the Rings.

Dark Souls is an absolute day one purchase for me. Demon's Souls was one of the most satisfying gaming experiences I've had in years so as soon as I had the opportunity to pre-order Dark Souls I jumped at the chance. If you're on the fence at all about Dark Souls, give Demon's Souls a try. Buy it, borrow it, rent it, steal it, whatever. Just give it a try. You won't regret it.

Saints Row 3 I'm definitely picking up, but probably not until it has been out for a while. There are just too many other great games coming out over the next month or two that will occupy my time.

Gonna buy all of them except lord of the rings.
