    Following on from last year's thread, what are you looking forward to during 2011?

    Personally I'm waiting for -

    Deathsmiles - Xbox 360 - UK release 17th Feb
    Marvel vs Capcom 3 - PS3 - UK release 18th Feb
    Pink Sweets/Muchi Muchi Pork! - Xbox 360 - Japanese release 24th Feb (Region Free)
    Eschatos - Xbox 360 - Japanese release 24th March (Region Free)

    Sturmwind - Dreamcast - Summer maybe?
    Raiden Fighters - Xbox 360 - I'd love to get a firm release date for the UK
    Trouble Witches Neo! - XBLA - Next few weeks, apparently
    Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online - PSN - Bring it on Capcom
    Zelda: Skyward Sword - Wii - I'm sure it'll be here by Xmas....
    Radiant Silvergun - XBLA - Quite soon apparently. Didn't get on with it when I had it on Saturn, but I'll give it another chance now.

    Tough question, especially since I almost never (read: never) buy games when they first come out. I just can't stomach paying $60 for a game. I'd rather wait a couple months and buy it used or see the price come down a little.

    BUT there are some games I like enough (and like the developer enough, which mainly just means Rockstar) to pay full price for games. So this year I'm looking at:

    -LA Noire (probably the first game I'll ever have bought on launch day)
    -Killzone 3
    -Max Payne 3
    -Duke Nukem Forever (you know, if it actually comes out)

    And on the 'maybe' list:
    -Hitman 5
    -Thief 4
    -Driver San Fransisco
    -Twisted Metal
    -True Crime Hong Kong

    I've just read that Sega Rally Online Arcade will be gracing XBLA and PSN very soon. I'll be getting that on the PlayStation when it's released.

    Lots of stuff I'm interested in...I think about the only thing I for sure won't be spending any money on is the 3ds. Just not interesting to me at all....but I do like Paper Mario styling. If there's a lot like that then maybe...but I HATE 3D and want it to go away, so I'll be avoiding purchasing things that have 3D tie ins as long as I can LOL

    Current Pre orders:

    1. Bulletstorm - 360 I can't wait, love the demo!
    2. WWE All Stars - 360
    3. Mortal Kombat Tournament Ed - PS3 Kratos is too good a fit!

    Considering:

    • Marvel Vs Capcom 3 - ???
    • Killzone 3 - Haven't been a big fan of the first 2, but I give them a try
    • Dragon Age 2 - PS3
    • Torchlight - 360 Have it for Mac, may try it for consoles
    • Brink - 360 Hope there's a demo

    Currently playing CoD Black Ops, but I need a break, some of the other players are seriously wearing my last nerves. Have Dead Space 2 for the PS3, but haven't managed to tear myself from the 360 & CoD Black Ops.

    Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Deathsmiles have been released and they've both been getting quite a bit of play time since they arrived. Muchi Muchi Pork/Pink Sweets is currently somewhere between Hong Kong and my house, so we'll be on that soon.

    There's a new shooter from G.Rev coming which is definitely on the list:

    Strania: The Stella Machina - XBLA - Seriously, watch the video. This looks absolutely fantastic.

    I really would recommend MvC3 to anyone as it's so much fun. Even if you think you don't like fighting games at least rent it or borrow it for a couple of nights. Once you get into it, it really is a great game. Still completely insane, but loads of fun.

    hahahah. Same here! Except BO is on teh PS3. Instead of a break, I found out I could play and not run and gun. Sniping or carrying a light machine gun and bascially walking around did a lot to save my sanity from dying so much.

    Well, as I got a lovely lovely lovely new 360 Slim for my birthday on Monday!! :D:D:D To go with my PS3 Slim. I plan to buy 360 games this year as I have a nice collection for my PS3.

    So I shall hopefully get:

    Crysis 2
    Rage
    Unchartered 3 (Yes for me PS3)

    And so far that's it? Maybe Dead Space 2 in the second hand bin? Oh and Forza 4 if it's out?

    Oh how could I forget one the games I am most looking forward too!! Gears Of War 3!! Definite buy for me that one!

    Have you thought about duct-taping the two consoles together, to make a PS360 FAT? :)

    I ended up with copies of Killzone 3 & Marvel Vs Capcom 3 due to various discounts & promotional offers, but haven't played them. Bulletstorm was everything I hoped! :D

    It's a game that was made for replaying. The Anarchy mode although cool, is practically useless without team players, but Echoes is the XXXX! Echoes is basically the single player mode without the story events, just speed runs encouraging to cause as much carnage as you can! Good times!
