With 2011 off and running, there is one big thought on all gamer’s minds: “What games am I going to buy this year?!”. Well, that is what I am here for! I am going to make it very simple for you and outline what games to buy this year.
First off we have Dead Space 2. Dead Space 2 was released on Tuesday January 25th, 2011. Dead Space 1 was easily one of the scariest games ever created. It throws you into the shoes of Issac Clarke, an engineer sent to check out why
a mining vessel has cut contact. When you and your team arrive you are brutally attacked by a type of being known as Necromorphs. Your only thought is to fight your way out. You do make it out okay though. That brings us to Dead Space 2. You are back in the shoes of Issac, ready to fight those darn Necromorphs one more time. Many peopleplayed the Dead Space 2 demo on the arcade, and clearly they were scared. My personal favorite review of the demo was by theRadBrad, because he was literally almost cryin
g throughout the whole thing due to how scared he was. This means that the fear factor of this game was at no point put on hold. So if you like fighting for your life against a mutant race, this is the game for you!!
The next game I am bringing you is Portal 2. Portal 1 was a huge hit for people who bought The Orange Box. You could pretty much place a whole in anything you want and go through it. Who does not like that?! Portal 2 takes place 50years after the character Glados dies. The greatest new thing that Valve is bringing to Portal 2, is the new coop mode. No longer will you have to go through those difficult puzzles again! For those who like to have to think in their games, well I highly suggest going out and buying Portal 2.
The last, and one of the most highly anticipated games of 2011, is Gears of War 3. Gears of War 3 is the spectacular end to one of the greatest series of all time. In GOW3 you take the reigns as a man known as Marcus Fenix. This game takes place eighteen months after the fall of the last human stronghold. Deep in the depths of the Earth something is brewing infecting the planet. It is up to Marcus and his Delta Squad to save the human race. Are you up to it?!
These are just 3 of the many great games that are supposed to come out in 2011. You may have realized that I did not talk about the next Call of Duty, despite it being probably the most anticipated game of the year. I did not mention anything on it because, well, nothing has been confirmed about it yet. I highly hope you take my advice and go out and either pre-order or buy these games. I know you will not regret it!
