I got Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry 3 pre-ordered and looking forward to seeing both games on Australian shelves this month and November. I absolutely love the entire storyline, having played from AC 1 to Revelations, tough have not played any of the titles that came on handheld consoles. Also looking forward to 2013 releases like Watch Dogs, and Ryu ga Gotoku 5 (known in the West as Yakuza 5), if SEGA is going to localize the game from Japan. :)

Quite suprised and a bit annoyed to hear that 5 years after its official release, Mass Effect 1 will be coming to PS3 as part of a trilogy set or standalone purchase on PSN.

SimCity and Sims 3 Seasons XD
Besides that, I'm working on getting enough money for Sleeping Dogs, and playing some of my other games that I can't play without the graphics card that's coming in the mail XD

I wish I could say I was, but lacking a job I really couldn't get a lot of them anyway. The only one I know I'll be playing for certain is Halo 4, and that's only because a friend pre-ordered a separate copy for me. Even then I don't know if I'll be playing multiplayer or not because I don't know if I'll have Live by then.

That said, there are games that I would like. It's probably far off, but the trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes had me excited. I'd love to be able to afford a WiiU right off and get some of the games(not sure if they'll all but at launch) such as ZombiU, Tank tank tank!, Assassin's Creed 3, Mass Effect 3, maybe Batman: Arkham City, etc. I was interested in Dishonored, but it seems as if it's not meeting some expectations. I enjoyed the other two Bioshock games, but it seems like Infinite has fallen off the face of the earth.

Would also like to catch up on games that have already been released. Didn't enjoy Oblivion, but Skyrim looks a million times better and I might be able to download it through file transfer. Wish I could play Saints Row the Third. MGS4 would be nice, but I'd need a PS3 for it. Borderlands 2 looks a lot more enjoyable than the first.

I've played MGS4 and I actually enjoyed it due to the great arsenal of weaponry to choose from, as well as the costumes and other features of the game and yes I own a PS3. Bought one just for my interest in Japanese video games that get localized. Yeah, I don't know how good Dishonored will be, apart from seeing what you can do.

Another game that most people are looking forward to would be GTA V. Checked out the screenshots Rockstar showed to the gaming public and... I must say, WOW! A lot more real looking than it's predecessor GTA IV.

Persona 4 Golden for me.

I got Persona 3 Portable on the VITA when it first came out (VITA release, P3P is PSP) and it was easily one of the best games I've played xD. I've gotten some other games of the MegaTen franchise since then, but P4G is still my most looked for xD.

I think it's 11/11/12?

Me too, but then the *other* new X-Com... Xenonauts (http://www.xenonauts.com/)

It's an indie game developer that is remaking X-Com while trying to stay true to the original game mechanics. The UI and graphics have been brought up to modern standards and there are plenty of small additions to the gameplay, but the core remains the same. Unlike the Firaxis X-Com remake, which unfortunately tries to simplify some of the things that made the original great.

i already played both,

xcom as a demo and i paid for xenonauts, the xenonauts AI, hwile a work in progress sint really that impressive.

there are tons of remakes and they all have their plusses and minuses, many lack features as well, so in balance i find the firaxis demo to be about as enjoyable as some of the full remakes out there

(though not as good as xenonauts an ufo alien invasion, the full game might on balance be better than either)

Many, although most of them are a year or so away, if not longer.

Surprisingly not. I was a few years ago but with the recent disappointments I think I have given up on games. Luckily there are plenty of retro games to play.

The game I'm looking forward to the most is God of War: Ascension for the PS3 and which will be the prequel of all the games in the series.
