2012 Games you Might Not Be Aware of but SHOULD!

Good 2D fighters that aren't 60 bucks and don't feel like they're clinging to ancient outdated design mentalities are extremely rare so indi fighter Skullgirls is one of kind as far as I'm concerned and I can not wait to play it. Never mind the fact it's an all female cast fighter, which is fucking awesome in of itself, everything about it screams must play to me from the art direction and brilliant animation to the devs making sure people know how serious they are taking its balance and feel and how important a good tutorial is. Even the best AAA high budget fighters fail at doing tutorials, I hope Skullgirls shows them all how to do things right alongside just being as plain awesome as it already looks it will be.

Asura's Wrath

Almost everyone at every game site, absolutely everyone has been cynical, doubtful and downright insulting to Asura's Wrath so far and no doubt the reviews will reflect this. Personally I view the game as an experiment, a unique set of ideas that might not fully pan out but are well worth experiencing. It might very will just be "Dragonball Z with quick time events" but I seriously don't care. Games need to do this kind of presentation more often god damn it. I don't care how simple and linear the mechanics are, I want to explode MORE CYBER SPACE GOD BUDHAS using nothing but the power of anger and fists! If I have to play a cross between Afterburner and Dragon's Lair to do so then so be it.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

The last Cybertron game was fan-fucking tastic. It was by far the best Transformers video game made to date and the sequel is set to improve and add on to everything the original did and more. Wer're talking giant space T-Rex's, combiners, bigger crazier robot guns that will seem like they belong in Ratchet and Clank. How can any self respecting nerd not want to yell fuck yeah at all that! Plus Shockwave is in it and this time around the art direction won't be dipped in a bland sesspool of brown and grey metal due to the vast improvements in Unreal Engine 3's tech since the originals release. Though I'm sure some people will still bitch about Soundwave not turning in to a casette player.
