i'll be picking up gears. i kinda love gears, plus im pretty good at it *pats self on back*.
i know they're changing a ton of shit in it, but i'm not mad, i dont really understand people who get super pissy that a sequel (or in this case a prequel) is changing stuff. if i wanted to keep playing gears 3 i'd be playing gears 3.
bioshock infinite is the game i'll be waiting for reviews to get. pure single player games like that i wanna know its good before investing in it, cus it doesnt have that "messing around in multiplayer" added value.
@clonedzero: I'm a little hesitant about BioShock Infinite, too. But that's purely because I'm much more cautious about how a console port is going to turn out. I was burned awfully hard by Far Cry 3's mess of a PS3 version... That's also the reason why I'm holding off on Tomb Raider, which otherwise looks pretty great imo.
And Gears! I love Gears, too! I'm not very good at the multiplayer, though, but that's admittedly because I played so damn little of it. That's also why I'm a little excited to dig into Judgment; it'll be the first Gears game I get at launch so I can hopefully jump in with a load of fellow new players. I'll be on a more even playing field, much more so than, say, jumping into Gears 3 competitive like a year in.
I'm very unlikely to get either. I never cared at all for Gears of War and i sold my 360 last year so that take care of that.
I'm most likely done with God of War at this point. I have all the games except for Ghost of Sparta and will pick that one up if i ever need a God of War fix.
If i do go back to playing my PS3 regularly before the PS4 launches i'm more interested in picking Killzone 3 and InFamous 2 than another God of War prequel.
Still with a big enough price drop who knows. The chance is closer to none than slim but never say never.
God of War: Ascension is 100% yes. Love this series too much to miss the release of a sequel. The MP probably isn't for me but as long as the campaign is more than a few hours I'm happy.
Gears of War: Judgement will be purchased as long as the changes aren't shitty enough to turn my friends away. Gears 3 kind of killed my hype so I'll probably not be too butthurt from any further changes made since the first 2 games.
I thought God of War got kinda boring by the middle of the second game and I think Gears 3 really rounded that story out - as for gameplay I also had enough of that specific cover based wall bouncing to last me a while and am not really interested in the competitive multiplayer side of it.
I WILL be picking up Tomb Raider though.
Both games would take a back seat to Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for me. That said I'm kinda interested in how Ascension rates. I know not a lot of people asked for a multiplayer God of War, but sometimes the best things are things we didn't think we wanted. It could be really cool, and if it works would be a really unique experience on consoles at least. Judgement seems like more of the same, but thats ok because Gears usually delivers.
I use to be a huge fan of both game series, for some reason though I'm feeling a lot of franchise fatigue on any game series that has gone beyond 3. It has to be psychological though cause I loved aC up until 3, I was bummed that they announced another Mass Effect even though I loved 3, and now with the GoWs I'm just feeling completely empty about them. I wouldn't have even given a second thought of them if another one wasn't coming out.
