The final frontier...
Into the world of sci-fi then, and avid fanbois could be torn between the latest LucasArts game Star Wars 1313 and the upcoming Star Trek game penned by God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk and those who wrote the next Star Trek movie. Nothing really floats my boat too much at first glance but neither are without their merits, particularly the latter with its menacing take on the human-like lizards of the Gorn Hegemony.
One game that definitely whets my appetite, though, is Dishonored, Bethesda's stealthy Neo-Victorian stab-fest. The open-world title is set for shelves this October, so there isn't long to wait there.
The publisher also teased its MMO epic The Elder Scrolls Online and its Skyrim DLC Dawnguard, which should extend gameplay by between 10 and 20 hours.
2K Games was offering hands on time with the forthcoming Borderlands 2 and Spec Ops: The Line, while it also presented footage of its Xcom: Enemy Unknown revival.
The list goes on, with honourable mentions to stupendous-looking titles such as NetherRealm Studio's DC fight fest Injustice: Gods Among Us and THQ's Company of Heroes 2, which I had the pleasure of seeing in action a few weeks ago here in London. More and more releases continue to excite and let's not forget Rockstar's GTA V is also on the way in the next year.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
In fact those of you who said the game release schedule was looking thinner and bleaker as the current gen consoles picked up more cobwebs could well be eating your words in months to come. There's a lot on the calendar to keep us gamers busy, that's for sure.
E3 was brimming with them and while the lineup was inevitably over-saturated with sequels and refreshed franchises, there are definitely some standout new IPs to keep watch for. And with Nintendo's Wii U opening the door for a new wave of tablet-controlled hybrid gaming, the year ahead certainly looks to dazzle. ®

Re: Instant Gratification (6-Year-Old Edition)
And assassins creed looks dubious... not that I like the franchise.
Where's all the much vaunted FPS action that the twin sticks were needed for?
I haven't seen any call for them in any of the games I've played... or the touch sensative back panel?
If only sony weren't such a bunch of punts I could have a Japanese PSN account set up and actually have more than 2 vita games olololol
What a disappointment. Nuff said.
Er... Valve? Hello?? Half Life 3??? When?
Re: Fortunately you mean
Naughty Dog really know how to get the best from it, something to do with Sony ICE team being based there
Did I miss it?
No mention of planetside 2 which looked by far the most fun you can have for free.
Of the games here, bleh usual suspect...
Interested in Watch Dogs maybe, depend greatly on what people are saying after it has come out, Sleeping dogs as I do love Hong Kong action movies and, the new counter strike.
Though what I'm really waiting for is Mechwarrior online.
