Steve Watts posted a new article, News Stories that Defined 2012.
A look back at some of the biggest and most influential news of this year.
honestly shitty year for gaming. There were a few good games but almost everything missed the mark in some way. Also Im really not into sneaking type games and there seemed to be alot of that this year. I gave all the big games an honest shake but games like Dishonored, hitman and Max Payne 3 just missed it for me. Farcry 3 is really cool but I have not had alot of time with it yet. Diablo 3 ate up most of my time spent gaming this year and is my goty. But I honestly think it was a pretty weak year.
Thankfully next year is starting with Simcity and Crysis3 both of which Im really excited for. Simcity is looking really great and will be a day 1 purchase for me.
Smaller properties were the highlight this year: Journey, The Walking Dead, FTL, Grimrock, Torchlight 2, Endless Space, Mechwarrior Online, PlanetSide 2 (not so small), etc.
Go listen to this interview with RA Salvidore talking about the break up of 38 studios and the heartbrake that the world he and his team created is never going to be enjoyed.
