Games I’m Waiting for in 2012

Here are 5 games I am anxiously waiting to be released this year (2012). Hopefully the publishers stick with their ETAs!

1. Ninja Gaiden 3

I haven't played NG2 yet… I did play the first one on the PS3 and it is one of those games you underestimate looking at its cover. Sure it is just a ninja game, hack and slash, shuriken shooting etc… But, if they maintain the same mechanics as in one, some encounters will frustrate you to shreds (in a good way). Release date: March 2012.

2. Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City

Hopefully another great hit from an amazing franchise. I'm getting sick of the RE movies, but the games continue to be a must have for anyone that likes the post apocalyptic shooting genre. As the name suggests, it takes place in Racoon City, much like RE2 and RE: Nemesis. Release date: March 2012.

3. Resident Evil 6

Yikes another RE game in the same year as the other! Yep, I'll let the trailer below speak itself. Release date: November 2012.

4. Borderlands 2

The original Borderlands offered hours upon hours upon hours upon hours of gameplay. Plus you have downloadable content to keep you entertained for a looooooooooong time. The game continues on the planet of Pandora, and the gameplay is similar to the first. The original was a great success, will Borderlands 2 be one too, given it is quite similar in gameplay and setting? Hell yeah! You just need to be trigger happy! Release date: sometime 2012, at worst 2013…

5. BioShock Infinite

If you are familiar with the BioShock series, the first two were related to each other in terms of settings and that only years separate the two plot wise. BioShock Infinite (code name Icarus) however, does not take place underwater (Rapture), but in the skies (Columbia). The developers have quite a challenge making a world that is more open (underwater, limited space vs. open skies, infinite of space).
