With the end of this gen almost coming to an end we've had an awesome 2011, an awesome 2012 so what about 2013?. I can tell you 2013 is gonna be one hell of a year for gamers, in fact it's not gonna pull punches ether since the first 3 months of 2013 is gonna be a disaster for my wallet.
Let's take a look at 2013 shall we (from what we know, games can be canceled or pushed back at any moment). This is only a PARTIAL LIST, of course I'm gonna miss out a few games in this list and of course games will be mentioned from devs as the year goes on.
Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm- March 12 2013 (pc)
Those of you who know about Starcraft, well here's the first "expansion" for SC2, if you don't know about Starcraft I suggest you look into it.
Dota 2- still TBA (pc), was supposed to come out in 2012 but so far it doesn't look like it will make a 2012 release since there's 18 days left in the year
I find moba games a hit or miss, it's one of those genres that can be fun but honestly take way too long to finish a round in moba games. Since I've been following Dota 2 it has that art style that makes it stand out compared to other moba style games. Did I mention it's free?.
DMC- Jan 15 2013 (multiplat)
Well here's the reboot to the series Devil May Cry, yes some people are QQing that they changed Dantes look which in honestly I'm with the other half of the fan base and I like his new look. After trying out the demo I have to say my doubts about the gameplay have been expunged..
Ni No Kuni Wrath of the White Witch- Jan 22 2013 (ps3)
Well we get our first taste of a JRPG not to far into 2013, in fact it comes out the first month of 2013. Going by the demo I was 50/50 with the game. It seems to me this game will get better as it goes on which might be a turn off for some people. Anyways if you need to sink your teeth into a JRPG (a good one) this might be your saving grace.
Aliens Colonial Marines- Feb 12 2013 (multiplat)
Remember the movie Aliens?, if you don't then I'm gonna stop talking to you. Aliens CM takes place 17 weeks after the events of the movie Aliens, one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time. Time to scream Game Over Man!!! during my play through of the game in 2 months.
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance- Feb 19 2013 (multiplat)
What do you get when Vanquish creators get a hold of a Metal Gear game, well we've seen the gameplay trailers and if you want to slice up grunts,cyborgs and metal gear rex/rays then Bring it!!!.
Tomb Raider- March 5 2013 (multiplat)
If you don't know about Tomb Raider or Lara Croft you've lived a shelterd life. The reboot/remake looks like it can give Lara the breath of life she needs.
Other games that will put a damper on that wallet in 2013
Dead Space 3,God of War Ascension, Beyond 2 Souls,Deadpool, Bioshock Infinite, South Park The Stick of Truth, GTA V, Crysis 3, Remember Me, Metro Last Light, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2, Anarchy Reigns, Geow Judgment, Arma 3, DayZ (stand alone), Neverwinter, The Last of Us.
Possible Games to come out in 2013
Dragon Age 3,FF VS 13 (doubt it),MGS Ground Zero, Dark Souls 2.
Again this is not a full list of games that come out in 2013
