Everything I read and see about the new Hitman game fills me with dread, why take a franchise and throw the game play out the window?

Hate to say it, but Forza Horizons is XBox, just like the rest of the Forza franchise

Very much looking forward to Watch Dogs. That looks like one killer game.

How about the long awaited Aliens: Colonial Marines, we've only been waiting something like 6 years.

Re: 2012/2013 Video Game releases anticipation thread

Okay, I remembered a game that I'm looking forward to this year. It's a remake to one of the best Mario games of all time. Super Mario World: The Second Reality Project 2. It's a romhack of the original game with all new levels, enemies, story, music, graphics, and bosses. It's technically a rom hack, but it's more accurate to say that it's an original game that uses the Super Mario World engine.

The game I'm looking forward to the most right now is the new Tomb Raider.
After that it's The Last Of Us, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed 3 and Grand Theft Auto 5.

Final Fantasy: Versus XIII has quietly been cancelled apparently, I guess we won't be anticipating this one after all.

I wonder whether we'll see any more DLC for Skyrim this year? Anything would be an improvement on Dawnguard.

Actually, it hasn't:

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/07/24/sq...s-to-not-show/

This is literally twice in one week Kotaku has reported on the incredibly likely cancellation of something which has not, in fact, been cancelled -- they did the same thing with the proposed Mass Effect film a few days ago, but there's an interview with the movie's planned director that's only like a week old where he reaffirms its existence.

That said, I could still see either of these projects -- especially the film -- cancelled in the end.

FF XIII has been vocally uncancelled today via several media outlets.

What's wrong with Dawnguard? I enjoyed it OK. I'd like to see more too.

... and I also forgot to mention Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. If you like 3D action adventure brawlers, Castlevania LOS was one of the best in the last few years. I'd highly recommend it.

AC3, GTA V, Bioshock Infinite, Hitman Absolution maybe (they seem to be changing a lot and I'm not sure about dropping David Bateson either)

Re: 2012/2013 Video Game releases anticipation thread

I know a few folks had mentioned waiting out on The Last Guardian. Sadly, here's another setback to report:

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/08/09/so...n-get-it-back/

Sony has abandoned the trademark for The Last Guardian, a game first teased by Team Ico in 2008 that has since been notoriously absent during subsequent conventions, productions and shows. The last we heard of The Last Guardian was when it didn't make an appearance at E3 this year. During the show, SCEA's Scott Rhode told us, "It just wasn't appropriate for us to give an update. That's just how it worked out."

The trademark was abandoned "because no Statement of Use or Extension Request [was] timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued," the USPTO TARR report states. Sony may have unintentionally let the trademark lapse, and has two months to file a petition to retrieve the application, according to its notice of abandonment.

The Last Guardian trademark was issued in January 2010, meaning Sony has until January 2013 to prove "use in commerce" and retain the mark, according to sleuth superannuation. "Use in commerce" would mean a completed, marketable game, which doesn't exist, as far as we know. Sony can of course register The Last Guardian in a new trademark if this one lapses.

Regardless of whether Sony intentionally abandoned the trademark, accidentally letting it lapse would seem to indicate a lack of focus on The Last Guardian, substantiated by the lack of content shown to the public.
