The end of the year AAA video game releases are almost upon us (with Madden once again kicking off the charge, no offense to Sleeping Dogs and Transformers). Which post Madden games are you planning on buying this year?

I am for sure going to be picking up:

LittleBigPlanet Vita

Fifa 13

Resident Evil 6

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

LittleBigPlanet Karting

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal

And perhaps also Halo 4, Dance Central 3, Skylanders Giants and Call of Duty Vita. That is unless the WiiU really does come out this year, in which case New Super Mario Bros. U, ZombiU, Scribblenauts Unlimited and LEGO City: Undercover all become maybes as well. Hopefully retailers are generous with their discounts and promotions this holiday.

#2 Posted by SexyToad (2722 posts) -

From those games you've listed, I would say RE6 and Halo 4. Maybe Fufa 13 but all the Fifa games are the same, aren't they? Also if Pikmin 3 is released with the WiiU then that one as well.

#3 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

I'm getting Persona 4 Golden, though it's unlikely I'll get to play it this year.

#4 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3938 posts) -

Halo 4, Borderlands 2 fo sho. Probably CoD.

#5 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4914 posts) -
  • GW2
  • TTT2
  • DOA5
  • SF 25th Anniversary Collection
  • Mugen Souls
  • Torchlight 2
  • Borderlands 2
  • War of the Roses
  • Dance Central 3

That's all the stuff I remember...

#6 Posted by AltonBrown (950 posts) -

P4G, RE6, Borderlands 2, maybe AC3, Tokyo Jungle, and Ni no Kuni in January.

#7 Posted by Slag (5051 posts) -

I probably won't buy much, have pretty big backlog.

But I will get Transformers, Darksiders II and Sleeping Dogs at some point in the future.

Transformers will likely be the only one I get this year.

#8 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6506 posts) -

I'll be picking up Borderlands 2 and XCom for myself. That's gotta be it for new purchases for me, at least until Black Friday comes.

#9 Posted by _Chad (960 posts) -

I'm getting for sure Borderlands 2 and ACIII for sure. I'm also getting Persona 4 Golden and ACIII Liberation because I need games for my Vita. There's a lot of games I'm debating on getting but I have no idea at this point in time.

#10 Posted by falserelic (5407 posts) -

Hitman: Absolution I'm ready to kill so smoothly yet again.......

#11 Posted by Demoskinos (15282 posts) -

Dead or Alive 5 thats uh.... about it really. I don't give a shit about Assassins Creed or Halo or Borderlands or well... just about anything this fall.

#12 Edited by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Games not including WiiU stuff:

  • Borderlands 2
  • Darksiders 2
  • Sleeping Dogs
  • A big maybe on Medal of Honor
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Guild Wars 2
  • Maybe Iron Brigade
  • Dark Souls
  • Dishonored
  • Maybe Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
  • Hitman Absolution
  • Far Cry 3

I plan on getting a Wii U at launch, but it depends on how strong the launch titles are. If it's just a bunch of ass I'll probably wait until some better stuff launches for it. (I have no clue what is launching with it, haven't really looked yet.) Also may get a Vita. Will probably end up buying a few things during the Christmas sale on Steam.

#13 Posted by Saethir (352 posts) -

I have plans to get:
Borderlands 2
Assassins Creed 3
Torchlight 2
And maybe Lego LOTR

If the wiiU has pikmin 3 or something really cool, I might get it. I really doubt it though.

#14 Posted by falserelic (5407 posts) -

Damn I forgot about Dishonored that's another game I'm getting. I can't wait to feel the Almighty power...

#15 Posted by Tag (65 posts) -

What i have on preorder:


Halo 4

Borderlands 2

Phantom Breaker(if it ever comes out)

NHL 13

Assassins Creed 3

XCOM Enemy Unknown


Zone of The Enders HD Collection

#16 Posted by awesomeusername (4247 posts) -

Call of Duty Vita looks TERRIBLE. Anyways, I hope I can get AC3, RE6 and maybe Blops 2. Then a bunch of older games.

#17 Posted by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

i already picked up Darksiders 2 (awesome game btw).

this fall, i plan on picking up AC3 for sure, and probably Halo 4. also looking forward to the new gears game, cus well i god damn love gears. looking forward to playing the campaign co-op with my brother like we've done with all the others. though i think gears got pushed back to march or something.

sucks theres no big RPGs coming out, im kinda hungry for a new big RPG.

#18 Posted by MightyDuck (1526 posts) -

I for sure plan on picking up NHL 13 and Need For Speed: Most Wanted. However, I will be waiting on price drops for Resident Evil 6 and potentially XCOM.

#19 Posted by csl316 (9744 posts) -

I'll absolutely play Tekken Tag 2, Halo 4, Need for Speed, and ZOE HD. But I always end up getting a bunch more stuff despite my giant backlog. Next year's when all my most anticipated games come out, starting with DMC and MGS Rising.

#20 Posted by Irvandus (2936 posts) -
  1. Xcom
  2. Halo 4
  3. AC 3

#22 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

Borderlands 2 and Dishonored.

#23 Posted by Mastercheesey (220 posts) -

Borderlands 2, Hitman, Dishonored and Assassins Creed.

Also if I can afford it maybe Halo 4, COD and Far Cry 3.

#24 Posted by Vinny_Says (5729 posts) -

There are so many i can't even remember what they are....If I make a list I'll just end up forgetting something....thankfully this website has got me covered when it comes to new games.

Borderlands is next on the radar.

#25 Posted by Encephalon (1343 posts) -

XCOM, maybe AC3

#26 Posted by Coafi (1494 posts) -
#27 Edited by CosmicBatman (317 posts) -

Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Borderlands 2. Then I'll be good for a long time.

#28 Posted by Skyfire543 (810 posts) -


Borderlands 2

Need For Speed: Most Wanted

Hitman: Absolution

And Maybe AC 3

#29 Posted by RainDog505 (102 posts) -

From my Amazon pre-orders:

1)Borderlands 2 (PC)

2) Epic Mickey 2: Power of Two (PC)

3) Medal of Honor: Advance Warefighter (PC)

4) Need For Speed: Most Wanted (PC)

5)X Com: Enemy Unknown (PC)

6) Dance Central 3 (360)

7) Halo 4 (360)

8) Assassin Creed 3 (PC)

9) Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (360)

10) Playstation Battle All Stars (PS3)--Thinking about cancelling this one...Don't have much in the way of local competition and online play is far too impersonal for this sort of trash-talk pseduo-fighting

11) Call of Duty Black Ops II (360...might pick up the PC verison off steam during inevitable winter sale)

Also have Torchlight 2 pre-ordered on Steam...whenever it feels like dropping. Will probably play some Mechwarrior Online when it, too, decides to release.

#30 Posted by Dimsey (967 posts) -

X-Com, Hitman, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Torchlight 2, Assassins Creed 3, Dead or Alive 5, Omerta: City of Gangsters, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3... 
Umm...  I think that's all for this year. 

#31 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12244 posts) -

There are exactly two games I am willing to buy at full price this year... the problem being that the come out on the same day and I don't really feel like blowing $120 when I know that they'll both be 33% off or whatever once the steam sale comes around. Thus I ask.... Dishonored or XCOM?

#32 Posted by Masha2932 (1242 posts) -

I rarely get games on day one but Far Cry 3 is looking really tempting.

Also if the Wii U releases this holiday season I might pick it up with Zombi U, LEGO city undercover and Rayman legends.

#33 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5826 posts) -

Dishonored and/or Hitman: Absolution 
or I might just save up and get a 3DS at the end of the year

#34 Posted by Masha2932 (1242 posts) -

@ArbitraryWater: XCOM will have more replay value and you can get in on the multiplayer matches early, so maybe buy that first.

Dishonored is a single player only game so you can still enjoy it a few weeks after release. Also it's a new IP and it's not a game with a lot of marketing outside gaming sites, so I expect the price to drop significantly in the weeks after release.

#35 Posted by blueaniman93 (604 posts) -

Already bought everything that I'm going to buy this year: Darksiders II and Borderlands 2. Maybe Torchlight 2. I want Dishonored, Need for Speed, and Assassin's Creed but probably not getting them.

#36 Posted by InfiniteSpark (281 posts) -

The only definite for me at the moment is Borderlands 2. I'll wait to hear what reception Need for Speed: Most Wanted gets after its release.

#37 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1488 posts) -

Borderlands 2

Hitman Absolution

And maybe Dishonored

#38 Posted by _Zombie_ (1464 posts) -

ACIII. Borderlands 2, if I somehow get the money.

#39 Posted by Petturi (52 posts) -
  • Sleeping Dogs
  • Darksiders 2
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Borderlands 2
  • Resident Evil 6
  • Dishonored (not sure yet)
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted
  • Hitman: Absolution
  • Far Cry 3 (not sure yet)
  • Rest of the The Walking Dead episodes

Maybe not everything on release day, but will eventually try all of these.

#40 Posted by HH (680 posts) -

gah, no big rpgs on the way? a bleak winter for me.

i'll pick up halo 4 if they've got ranked lists in multiplayer this time, otherwise it's a maybe, depends how starved i get i suppose.

#41 Posted by believer258 (12303 posts) -

Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Darksiders 2, Sleeping Dogs, possibly BlOps 2, maybe Halo 4, and Doom 3 BFG Edition.

Nope, you read that right, I've only played the original Xbox version of Doom 3 and thought it was awesome. I'd like to see the full, unadulterated game.

Also, probably not getting all of these games at launch or even this year.

#42 Edited by Tru3_Blu3 (3257 posts) -

The answer I want to be true: None

The answer that will sadly and inevitably be true: Halo4 and Borderlands

#43 Posted by Triumvir (504 posts) -

Dishonored and Hitman: Absolution are the two which I'll definitely be getting. If XCOM: Enemy Unknown is good on consoles (my current PC is ancient) I'll pick that up, too. If not, I'll wait until I upgrade my PC in the new year. Oh, and I'll be looking for a boxed copy of Journey, if those are still kicking around.

I'll probably keep and eye on ACIII and Far Cry 3 (there are usually crazy sales on AC games during the holidays), but they are not high priority unless they get a really, really good critical reception. If the Zone of the Enders HD collection isn't totally abortive, I might check that out, too.

And I'll rent or borrow CoD for the campaign, like I always do, but I never buy it.

#44 Posted by MetalBaofu (1450 posts) -

I doubt I buy any more retail games this year. I rent most stuff. The next game I'm contemplating buying is Ni no Kuni.

#45 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8609 posts) -

Guild Wars 2
Borderlands 2
Torchlight 2
Halo 4

#46 Edited by BeachThunder (12582 posts) -
#47 Edited by Yummylee (22658 posts) -

Tales of Graces F is next, which is hopefully going to arrive sometime next week!

  • Borderlands 2
  • Resident Evil 6
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Hitman Absolution
  • Maybe Far Cry 3
  • I'm also highly intrigued to see how Dishonoured shapes up, but I'm waiting on the reviews with that one.
#48 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (641 posts) -

Pretty much only Persona 4 Golden and Borderlands 2. Sucks not having a job and having only 3 classes for school to finish up. Plenty of free time, but not a lot of money.

#49 Posted by Levius (1255 posts) -


  • Dishonoured
  • Black Ops 2
  • Assassins Creed 3
  • Resident Evil 6
  • Devil Survivor; Overclocked (If Ghostlight get their shit together)
  • FIFA 13
  • X-COM: Enemy Unknown
  • Halo 4


  • P4 Arena
  • Hitman: Absolution
  • Far Cry 3
  • Assassins Creed: Liberation
#50 Edited by Fjordson (2436 posts) -

Honestly, I'm not crazy excited about the rest of the year at this point. With Prey 2 potentially in shambles, Grand Theft Auto V nowhere to be found, and Bioshock Infinite delayed, my hype for this holiday is pretty subdued at this point.

I'm looking forward to Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, and WoW: Mists of Pandaria, but that's about it. Taking a wait and see approach with Far Cary 3 and Halo 4. Will probably pick up FC 3 in a Steam sale.
