    There are a few titles I'm looking forward to this year, chief of which is Diablo 3, however I've been keeping an eye on this too. It looks like its trying to do something a little different for MMO's.

    Rock Paper Shotgun has put out just about the most comprehensive list of PC games to look out for. I guarantee there will be a few surprises in there for you! I had totally forgot about Spy Party, could well be the indie game of the year!

    When Max Payne 3 comes out, I'll buy it, but I won't play it until the community releases this:

    Max Payne - Wig Mod

    I point-blank refuse to play it when he's a white mans version of Shaft!

    Carrier Command and GTA V are the only games that I will defiantly buy on release. Had never heard of Spy Party until I read that article so I will keep an eye on any progress made from now till release.

    I'm hoping to find time to give Skyrim some decent attention, but it's all about ME3 for me. Max Payne 3 looks very good too.

    Don't know much about the new Max Payne, but if it will be just a linear adventure story game, then I don't think I'll bother. If it's more of a GTA style with open city, then it might be interesting :)

    Rockstar have said MP3 will be linear like the original and so will not be open world like GTA, RDR or LAN.
    The game does however look good regardless, although I agree it would have been interesting to see MP in an open world.

    Yeah, it'll be a linear story but I don't mind that as long as the game is fun to play and it looks to me like it could well be. :)

    Considering they've taken Shaft and made him white!

    I bet Samuel L Jackson wasn't too happy when he seen the Max Payne 3 trailer!

    I happened across this interesting alpha build of a game called Overgrowth. It reminds me of Skyrim and you play as an assasin rabbit - seriously! - and prowl an openworld doing quests.

    Some of the textures, animations and combat systems in the alpha build are fantastic. I particularly like the blood trickling down the character's neck after he has been knifed. It isn't perfect, alpha builds rarely are, but it does show promise. Missing from the demo is the game's music and elaboration about the game's plot and quests.

    It will probably ship with a fully functional editing kit for modders, so we'll hopefully see a lot of content added to the world.

    The guy who is responsible for this is, I believe, one of the people responsible for some of the most amazing video editing projects I've ever seen, whereby you take high-res digital photographs of a given area and use their software to edit your video in order to boost its resolution, clarity and detail. It'll really take the world of video editing by storm if a consumer product is developed from the results of their academic studies and design of the software. Just thought I'd add that as an aside since it shows that the guy responsible for this game has an eye on improving the resolution and detail level of different media. Consequently, it's likely that he'll try to ensure that the textures in his game are of great quality and clarity.





    More info. on Overgrowth...

    Bonus... here is the link to the demonstration of his amazing video editing software. I couldn't believe it the first time I watched it.

    I've been waiting for Diablo 3 to come out for over a year now.

    I'm also really interested in Max Payne 3.

    Another good looking game that sees you playing as some kind of post-apocalyptic investigator/botanist trying to save the remnants of humanity or solve some problem is hopefully coming out this year. I'll let the video speak for itself.

    Mass Effect 3 N7 Edition (pre-ordered 360 version back in November)
    BioShock Infinite (360)
    The Last of Us (PS3 exclusive)
    Borderlands 2 (360)
    GTA V (360)
    Syndicate (360)
    Aliens: Colonial Marines (360)
    The Witcher 2 (360)

    Shadowrun (the SNES version is in my top 5 all time games)
    Dishonored
    Dead State
    Diablo III
    Grim Dawn
    CARS
    Command & Conquer: Generals 2 (just read it's been pushed back to 2013 :()

    Lots for the 360 but I do consider myself a console gamer at heart.

    There's probably more I could add but that's all that springs to mind right now :)

    Gotta say Assassins Creed 3 looks like it could be really good judging by the leaked box covers, being set in the American Revolution. Looks really good
