Already pre-ordered RE:6, Dishonored, AC3, and Hitman. Im probably going to get Borderlands 2 after it comes out but probably will not rush to go out and get it.
I will not buy call of duty black ops 2. I will not buy call of duty black ops 2. I will not!!!
infinite, ac3, black ops 2.... need i say more?
Reserved- RE6, AC3, Hitman Absolution, Tekken Tag 2.
And, I'm heavily considering FarCry 3.
i need more money, i have far cry 3,borderlands 2, and RE6 preordered but i want halo 4, sleeping dogs, medal of honor warfighter, hitman and need for speed most wanted
Cannot wait for ACIII. As much as I love Ezio Auditore da Firenze he's had a long and full life that we've seen every minute of. I'm ready for a new Assassin. I just hope Ubisoft delivers on the Desmond part of the game this time!
Probably going to wait on black ops 2 but I've already preordered dishonored and AC3
Hitman, Halo and Far Cry for me
Darksiders II, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and Hitman are all on my list of soone to be pre ordered
halo 4, black ops 2, assasins creed III, y hitman absolucion!! lml
Honestly the only game I give two craps about is Borderlands 2. Well not entirely true but I don't have a 3ds and already own dark souls. Bioshock...... Guess we are going to wait for that one another year.
I plan on picking up Borderlands 2, RE6, AC3, Black Ops 2 (For the single player/co-op/Zombies only) I am 50/50 on Halo 4, Darksiders 2, and Far Cry 3. Still, I would rather all the above titles not come out at all if they would put out Bioshock Infinity this year in place of the rest.
I just wish they would spread the releases out more. I mean why not put some out this month, next, and so on? They will sell.. So why not give us gamers more options, as well as giving those who are not RICH a chance to get all the titles, and not have to pick one or two of them.
I was just going to stick with AC 3, Darksiders II, and C.o.D., but I've now added Dishonored and the last of us to the list
All I want is Dishonored and Assassin's Creed 3.
nsmb2 and halo 4.
Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 for sure,but everything else i am still skeptical.
In no particular order. RE6, DARKSIDERS 2, DISHONORED, BORDERLANDS 2, HALO 4, COD BO2, HITMAN ABSOLUTION.
