What is deeply involved @patrickklepek ? Sending a single engineer to Crystal Dyamics over to make sure the game reaches the much fabled 1080p? Sending a batch of sandwiches in crunch time? You're giving too much credit to Microsoft on publishing a game. That's not deeply involved but par for course on any type of exclusive publishing deals.

Publishing is actually much more than we usually realize. Publisher for example provide testing resources, localization, take care of certification process and other stuff. And there's obviously the whole marketing side which is also a big deal. Publishers manage if different portions of the game are developed by different teams, like outsourcing multiplayer to a different developer and so on.

I think it will better than 2011 and pretty much equel to 2010 with more quality releases early in the year and traditionally some hot games at the end of the year. Syndicate, Mass Effect 3, GTA V, probably XCOM, Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider and my most anticipated BioShock Infinite. I also hope for proper Assassin's Creed III and maybe, just maybe Half-Life 3 announced at E3 with the release by the end of the year. That would probably make it the best year in gaming ;)

That's probably the first ever MMOPG - Massively Multiplayer Online Puzzle Game.

I love the looks of my 3DS but this add-on is butt-ugly.

Achievements are mandatory on 360 so we can assume yes. Remember, Quake 4 on 360 comes with XBLA release of Quake 2, and it featured full set of its own achievements.

Well, that's pretty lame but understandable from Microsoft's point of view. To add a word of hope, maybe the game turned out to be just too damn good to be released in a month like March?

Looks really cool, I love the voice-over narrative.

 I'm astonished that some people name BioShock. For me it was just the contrary, like one of the very best endings in video game history.    But I'm with you on Fallout 3. Well, majority of the storyline was lame and the ending was just a nail to the coffin, especially comparing to super awesome ending of Fallout 1 ;)

And now I have to spend even more money on Dragon Age ;) Let's hope it's gonna be at least as good as Leliana's dlc.
