Top Picks for 2012

With 2012 underway and the industry poised for another great year in gaming I bring you my top picks for 2012. With rumors of new hardware and games 2012 is already starting out strong and as I look through my Amazon list of pre-ordered games I cringe at the headshot my wallet will take this year. However, no matter the damage that hasn’t stopped me before. This list is based on the games I’m most looking forward to playing this year.

Asura’s Wrath

When I first saw this game I was blown away by it over the top cinematic action. I’m expecting this one to be quite an experience.

Kingdom’s of Amalur: Reckoning

I’m a huge RPG fan and Kindom’s of Amalur falls right into that category. Offering all the aspects of a traditional RPG plus new innovations, Reckoning will definitely appease fans of the genre.

Mass Effect 3

Another great RPG, ME 3 is set to conclude the story of Commander Shepard and the Reapers as he faces their ensuing invasion.


Dante is back but not as you may know him. Ninja Theory is create a new Dante and ever though he doesn’t look the same the gameplay remains rooted to the Devil May Cry series.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

High Moon Studios did a great job with the War for Cybertron and based on what I’ve seen Fall of Cybertron aims to be bigger and better than the first.

Honorable Mentions:
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Darksiders II
Bioshock Infinite
The Darkness II
Aliens: Colonial Marines
Borderlands 2

Whats your 2012 list like? Is it similar to mine? Is it completely different? Let me know in the comments below, I might find a new game to add to my list.

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.
