Looking forward to 2011

L.A. Noir

I’ve really become a big Rockstar fan as of late. Honestly, I was never quite the age to get into the GTA series, and when I finally was, I was without the current console. But its hard to deny how great Red Dead Redemption is, just as a whole package. L.A. Noir is looking to one up RDR with brilliant graphics and an incredible new system with all the facial capturing.

Marvel vs Capcom 3

Fighting games are best when played with friends, and what’s a better way to get some frustration out than beating on each other? Combine that with iconic characters across the two companies like Wolverine, Dante, Deadpool, and Zero, and a crazy fighting engine, what more could you want?

The Last Guardian

Shadow of the Colossus is probably my favorite game of all time and I flat out can’t wait for The Last Guardian. I can’t even fathom what it will be able to bring to out do Colossus, but there’s no way I will be disappointed.

Deus Ex 3

Right on the coat tails of my love of Shadow of the Colossus is the original Deus Ex. I’m not a huge FPS fan, but I love cyberpunk something fierce, and the whole multiple choice approach to gameplay that the Deus Ex franchise has become known for, nearly equally so. The game is looking gorgeous, too.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

First for, I’m a SW nut, and the original Star Wars MMO Star Wars Galaxies, which I still play, is a game I owe a lot to especially in propelling me into game design and programming. The prospect of a new SW MMO is something I just can’t ignore regardless of who is making it, but right now BioWare can do no wrong and TOR is looking very, very right.

Little Big Planet 2
I really don’t know what to say about LBP2. LBP was awesome, fun, creative, and quite frankly didn’t even need a sequel. But then the guys and Media Molecule go and cram more features in and make level builder something that is unmatched in customization and flat out usability. LBP2 is far, far from a cash in sequel and looks to be pushing the limits of what a game can be used for. Its not a game, its a platform for games.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

While I’m not a huge FPS fan, 3rd PS is a different is a different story. Just from what was shown at E3, it looks like a ton of fun.¬†Destructible¬†cover, stealth and optical¬†camouflage make for an exciting combination of elements in the game. I can’t wait.

This is just a short list of my immediate favorites for 2011, as the year goes on who knows what will catch my eye, but these are some that I’ve gotta make sure I have preordered before its too late. What are you looking forward to?
