2012 has not been a good year for video games so far. It doesn't bother me that much since I have several games I can fall back on... yet I don't. So that's why I'm looking ahead at the games of the 2nd half of 2012 and early 2013. I won't bore you with the obvious ones (SimCity, Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Watch Dogs, Mario Bros. University) so I can tell you about some that haven't received much attention. Here we go!
WiiWare had a few solid games, many of them are part of the Bit.Trip series. They were all great games and I include Bit.Trip Runner as one of the greats, but goddamn it's hard. It is not an easy game when you lack rhythm. So why Bit.Trip Runner 2? I'm hoping there's hope for me yet. I can still give Runner a chance now that I have both the Wii and PC (thanks Steam sale) versions. I'm also positive the game will be on the affordable side so I can skip Taco Bell for a day. For the benefit of my colon.
I'm a sucker for faux 8-bit nostalgia, something Retro City Rampage is all about. Take your favorite NES games, add some Grand Theft Auto, and you've won me over. Now all it needs is to be released. I've been waiting for quite some time now and patience is wearing thin.
Any group of people which includes one of the dudes who made World of Goo is okay in my book. If they want to make a game, go for it. And apparently that's happening. There's also some Henry Hatsworth dude and... another guy who did some stuff. It doesn't matter, the game looks promising, even if it's about a fireplace.
And that trailer. Fucking dark.
So excited for these and more. Video games.
