dont forget watever cod is next
Lol, Lost Guardian, if that ever comes out.
And then there's Versus, but God only knows about that one.
Tomb Raider, Bioshock, and Dust 514 is where it's at.
GTA V is all I want and need!
The idea of an Assassin's Creed game set during the Revolutionary War is the most intriguing idea for me from the list of confirmed dates, especially with the combination of the Bow & Arrow/Tomahawk thing. Other than that, BioShock Infinite is probably my 2nd choice. That video that was released showing the Demo thing - hardcore one of the best demos I've ever seen.
Hopefully Guild Wars 2 will be added to this list
GTA 5 will blow Saints Row: The Third out of the *** water. Also, I can't wait for AC3, Halo 4, and Bioshock Infinite. But most of all, I wanna see whether they did good or bad on Resident Evil 6. Regardless, they're gonna be some *** games out this fall.
And the first Borderlands was pretty fun too so I expect great things.
For Assassins creed, George WAshington is apart of the Masonic Order, which is supposed to be a continuation of the Knights Templar, How is Connor supposed to be allies with a templar?
all i need is RE woot
I am going to be so broke in that four month span that it's FKING funny, can't wait.
The only game I really want is Resident Evil 6.
The two must have games for me are Assassin's Creed III and Bioshock Infinite.
If GTA V comes out this year, then it'll skyrocket right to the top.
Am I the only person who as he grows older is willing to wait months before purchasing most new titles? With the exception of a handful of franchises (like GTA and The Elder Scrolls), I can wait for months before picking up a game either used or at a reduced price.
RE, AC, and Halo definitely. Bioshock and Borderlands, I need to beat their predecessors first. Surprisingly, no CoD announced (yet).
GTA 4, MOH Warfighter, the next COD... AC3... and thats about it
RE6, Tomb Raider, and quite possibly Sleeping Dogs
I will probably wait until the reviews are in but, Medal of Honor sounds really cool, especially with their take on multiplayer. Besides that I'm keeping an eye on Dishonored,Tomb Raider, X Com, and maybe epic mickey 2 and Bioshock Infinite.
I see a nice and open Tuesday spot on October 9th for GTA V.
That former rockstar animator's resume said GTA V was releasing in October.
Boom! Make it happen Rockstar! This fall schedule is good but it could use one more killer game.
I think I need a second job before Fall.
You can pretty much put FIFA 13 on September 25
Plus Tekken Tag 2, Dead or Alive 5, Aliens: Colonial Marines, NHL Hockey, F1:2012, will all release in September as well.
