The lights are on
Portal 2 (April 20)Portal's GLaDOS was voted the best character of the past decade, and we can't wait to spar with her again in this FPS puzzler that introduces new gameplay elements and co-op play to test our mental meddle.
Mortal Kombat (spring)The simple name says it all. Ed Boon and his
team are bringing the series back to its roots, which means it has all
the gore and Fatalities your stomach can handle. And for all you PS3
fans, you'll be happy to hear that Kratos is in the game.Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection (spring)If you weren't in on the ground floor for these two cult classics when they first came out for the PS2, this is a great opportunity to see what everyone has been raving about. Both games have been remastered in HD and will feature 3D and Trophy support.L.A. Noire (spring)L.A. Noire's investigation-based gameplay makes this more than just another Rockstar open world title, but this game appears to sacrifice none of Rockstar's attention to detail and ambition.
Resistance 3 (Aug.6)The game takes place four years after Resistance 2, and follows the tribulations of new protagonist Joseph Capelli.
Batman: Arkham City (fall)Hugo Strange knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman, and that's just the beginning of what this game has in store.
