    I was looking forward to this: http://www.thesecretworld.com/

    But the information that I just found out has just dampened all my enthusiasm. The 20s settings got moved to the modern era because you wanted to include modern pop references like Buffy, Da Vanci's code and other stuff? The hell? That's the only reason? The graphics feel more stuffy than before, but that's not a huge issue. As a game about mythology, I wish you would get mythology or certain things right. The Asian faction is based in Seoul, South Korea?? Are you for real? While your buildings and setting looks Japanese but the locations looks like Chinese, where is the Korean theme fitting in here? Even their interviews about Asian secret societies sounds badly informed, only criminal and political organizations exist? Sigh...

    This looks interesting, and I might get into this:

    I am not that big on shooters, but Firefall also doesn't look half bad:

    I have already said numerous times that survival horror games these days aren't really survival horrors. However, Amy, looks interesting. It feels like Haunting Ground with a girl instead of a dog, with the combat that's more clumsy.

    Some random comments from a look at other games:

    Overgrowth, human sized rabbit beating the crap out of each other in realistic combat? Why does that remind me of RedWall?

    Tomb Raider rebooted? Is it just me or does she looks like J. Lo?

    South Park RPG is sure to be at least interesting this year. Even watching LPs will give some lulz. :)

    I don't buy games with always-on DLC until they hit the bargain bin (or get fixed, whichever is earlier).

    Not much. He applied after playing Fallout, the story goes, and worked on TORN as a writer. Before that, he was a tester.

    Yes.

    My brain-to-keyboard connection has been seriously off since New Year's.

    That said, nickel-and-dime DLC schemes are also a turn-off. But not for the base purchase, I just don't go for the whole marketplace bullshit.

    Can't promise that I won't get Diablo 3 but I will definitely wait for a massive price drop if they stick with that DRM.
