Thirsty Conversations: Your most anticipated game of the coming months?

playing games

We all have one, you know it. One game that is releasing this fall, or even next week, is on your “to-buy” list. At least one game that you want to play so badly you’re counting down the days to it. The game that you have its logo printed on your underpants, and dream of it at nights. Well, maybe not that last part, but I’m definitely sure about the rest.

    Let me know if I forgot to add/substract anything from the list.
    Mine are, definitely:
    Darksiders II Collector’s
    Borderlands 2 Loot Chest
    Resident Evil 6 Collector’s
    PS All-Stars Battle Royale
    Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation
    Hitman: Absolution
    Halo 4
    If I had to pick one… Resident Evil 6 or Assassin’s Creed, or even Hitman. Tough call, isn’t it?

  2. Ghost250 August 5, 2012 at 2:06 pm -

    only games i care about are Resident Evil 6 & Assassin’s Creed III

    as far as other games i’ll probably buy down the line, but not eager to play Darksiders II, Sleeping Dogs, Dishonored, & Hitman: Absolution. i would’ve put Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation but i don’t own a vita and don’t plan on getting one anytime soon.

  3. Christos Chatzisavvas August 5, 2012 at 3:12 pm -

    Judging by your Avatar, Dark Souls should be there :P Suppose no gaming rig? Anyway, I can’t believe I omitted it from my list.
    You’re getting the huge releases! I’m getting those too, minus Dishonored. No more Bethesda for me.

  4. wicken August 5, 2012 at 4:28 pm -

    This year only NFS Most Wanted but next year? The Last of Us, GTA V, Project Cars, Beyond Two Souls.

  5. Christos Chatzisavvas August 5, 2012 at 4:33 pm -

    Strong games there! Most Wanted is under watch before it enters my list, I’m cautious about it, I want another Underground!

  6. benzo August 5, 2012 at 5:00 pm -

    Borderlands 2, Darksiders 2,Medal of Honor Warfighter, AC3,and AC Vita!! Too many to pick 1!!!!! How dare you ask us to pick only 1 Mr. Chatzisavvas!

  7. Christos Chatzisavvas August 5, 2012 at 5:03 pm -

    Terribly sorry Mr Benzo! Just pretend a genie came along, and told you that you only had one game to choose from all these and it would be granted to you instantly :P

  8. benzo August 5, 2012 at 5:07 pm -

    Well since you put it that way….as tough as it is…I’m going to have to go with Borderlands 2. LOVED the first game and played for freaking hours and hours. There…damnit! You got your answer! LOL

  9. Christos Chatzisavvas August 5, 2012 at 5:13 pm -

    Yay I feed my essence with forced answers from unsuspecting readers, off to some feeding now :P

  10. TheGrimOfDeath August 5, 2012 at 6:08 pm -

    Arghh so many games!
    There are some Vita games that I want to buy such as MK, Gravity Daze, Smart AS, AC3:Liberation, COD BO2 Declassified and Little Big Planet Vita.
    For PS 3 there is SO MUCH MORE, COD BO2, AC3, Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution, XCOM, Need For Speed, MOH WF, and so much more.

    I think i’ll just get a PSN premium account and get all the free games like Motorstorm Apocalypse and Dead Space 2 and Little Big Planet2

  11. TheGrimOfDeath August 5, 2012 at 6:08 pm -

    I wish that they will give out free PS Vita games too.

  12. Christos Chatzisavvas August 5, 2012 at 6:14 pm -

    Most probably they will, once Vita’s sales get a boost, as an incentive for new people and a “thank you” for the ones who have it. The boost is inevitable, with all the new Vita games coming out for it. I know that, for one, I’ll get Battle Royale on both consoles, hopefully.

  13. Martin Zamora August 5, 2012 at 7:18 pm -

    My most anticipated games are Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, and lastly Halo 4. I’m so excited for Resident Evil 6 it’s ridiculous, I can’t wait for the demo.

  14. Mezzo August 5, 2012 at 11:58 pm -

    There are so many games that i want to get my hands on, but as an Extremely Broke gamer, i will be able to get only a few of them.
    The that i am interested in & will definitely buy at a later date are:

    1 – Hitman Absolution
    2 – Resident Evil 6
    3 – Darksiders 2
    4 – Need For Speed: Most Wanted
    5 – Dishonored
    6 – Far Cry 3

    7 – Black Ops 2 ( Want It Day 1, But No Cash :( )


    The games that i have on Pre-Order and will probably the only games i’ll play for months to come are:

    1 – Medal of Honor
    2 – ACIII
    3 – Playstation All-Stars

    That’s all

  15. Ghost250 August 6, 2012 at 1:13 am -

    @Christos Chatzisavvas yeah i don’t have but it really doesn’t matter though because the PC doesn’t really offer much more than the console version. only thing different is the new areas and a new online mode. but that will be coming to consoles in october anyways. so im pretty much set. RE6, AC3 & Dark Souls: Artorias Of The Abyss DLC

  16. nick August 6, 2012 at 6:43 am -

    if i could only choose 1 id have to be dishonored.
    simply because it looks so unique!
    assassins creed meets deus ex with a really in depth story line, and awesome stealth mechanics!
    really looking forward to hitman also i was really skeptical of it, just looked like another stealth game gone action!
    but the sniper challenge really surprised me, im hoping i was wrong and this will still be a true hitman game!
    on another note my alienware M18X arrived today!
    so freaking cool this thing, all the lights, beautiful screen, and power coming out the wazoo!
    so disappointed i dont have any time to play any games on it, gotta get up at 4 in the morning tomorrow so…………..

  17. Ernice Gilbert August 6, 2012 at 7:21 am -

    For me, it’s Black Ops II, Assassin’s Creed III, Medal Of Honor: Warfighter, Darksiders II, Dishonored, PS All-Stars and Borderlands 2.

  18. TheGrimOfDeath August 6, 2012 at 8:21 am -

    Also there is DJMAX TECHNIKA TUNE for the PS vita coming out in September for Japan and Korea (USA TBA). I don’t think it will come out in Europe though :(
    I really like DJ Max.

  19. Ernice Gilbert August 6, 2012 at 9:12 am -

    I also want Halo 4!
