Looking Ahead, 2012 Preview

As we make our new year's resolutions and watch the sun rise on a new year it's time to take a look at the years upcoming games. In 2011 we saw it all in the video game industry and I have a feeling that 2012 will be similar for the industry. Like 2011, (see 2011 A Year in Video Game Review) 2012 has games for everyone. New IPs like Lollipop Chainsaw and Anarchy Reigns, more HD Collections including Devil May Cry and Zone of the Ender and remakes with a twist, X-COM and Syndicate.

The list goes on:
Kingdoms of Amalur                 Aliens: Colonial Marines
DMC                                The Darkness 2
SSX                                Asura's Wrath
Final Fantasy XIII-X2              Mass Effect 3
Soul Calibur V                     Ghost Recon: Future Solider
Dragons Dogma                      GTA V
Prey 2                             MG Rising: Revengeance
Max Payne 3                        Tomb Raider
Borderland 2                       Bioshock Infinite
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron    Darksiders 2
Hitman Absolution                  Twisted Metal
The Last Guardian                  Dota 2
Diablo III                         Torchlight 2
It's not set in stone that these games will make it out this year but as gamers we all hold out hope that they will. Of course there are those hidden gems that the industry tends to drop on us without warning. We might see a few of these games this year or at least hear something about them. Honestly I'm looking forward to what 2012 has to offer and hoping I have the time to play them all.

So what are your thoughts on 2012, let me know in the comments below.

Final Fantasy XV - Death Caster Spell Trailer

Final Fantasy is known for their powerful spells among other things. Death is one such spell. This iteration of the powerful one-hit KO spell, when it hits, does it abit different. From the trailer you can see Noctis equip the Ring of the Lucil. I'm not sure if this is same ring from the KingsGlaive movie but it seems to be going by the items description.

This Death Spell literally sucks the life out of enemies until the die in a puff of smoke. The drawback to this spell, is that it leaves you completely open to attack and takes some time to cast. I completely understand for limitations on such a powerful spell and can't wait to get my hands of this game. November cannot come soon enough.
