What good games are being released, or have been released, in Q1 of 2010?

Well, we're a third of the way through January and there haven't really been any games, released so far, that have appealed to me. Nor are there any upcoming releases that have caught my interest (apart from Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island and possibly the Star Trek MMO). So I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with some good 2010 titles set for release within the next couple of months?

    I wrote an article on this! :D



    Microsoft is working on one of the most anticipated sequels of the year; BioShock 2.

    Microsoft have nothing to do with Bioshock, 2K Marin do. Also the majority of games mentioned are not due in Q1.

    Nintendo is putting on the finishing touches to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.

    Same thing here; Square Enix make Final Fantasy.
    Some that haven't been mentioned which look interesting are: Just Cause 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Tatsunoko Vs Capcom.

    Really? Damn, I'm embarressed... Guess I didn't check my facts deep enough. I'll try not to make such aweful mistakes again.
    I also left out a bunch of games. I was pointing out some.
    I know they're all not Q1.

    Thanks for pointing out my errors... Don't judge GGG too harshly because of my carelessness. I was working while tired, never a good mix.

  • Mass Effect 2 has all my attention right now. Or rather, the Mass Effect franchise...trying to cram in one last playthrough before Tuesday. Don't usually get games, especially mainstream AAA "blockbuster" games, on release day...but I can make an exception for Mass Effect 2.

    I'm definitely interested in Charlie Murder, and I'm not sure if my gaming reflexes are still good enough to do anything other than fail horribly at Super Meat Boy. Same goes for Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and I'm not sure when that one's getting out. I have some interest in Napoleon: Total War, but likely won't end up getting it because I think most of my Strategy friends are sticking with Civilization for now.

    2010 seems to have slowed down on the indie games front compared to Q4 of last year. Here's hoping it speeds up, last year was EXCELLENT for indie games.

    Can I judge it by the Brutal Legend review then?

    Had a look around at your blog and I most confess I raised an eyebrow slightly when you review of Brutal Legend and don't even mention the multiplayer aspect, which is the focus for the game. According to the high and mighty Tim Schafer the campaign is only there to teach the player of the multiplayer aspect. I also have to point out that the formatting for the post is rubbish and hardly readable, with all those weird line breaks all over the place :P

  • Split/Second looks kind of cool.

    A twist on the car racing format, with racers having to avoid exposions, collasping construction site and bursting water pipes that fall upon the track in a wrath of destruction.

    I really don't do the whole Multi-iplayer aspect of games, like that.
    and if Tim Schaffer wanted to make a Multi-player game then he failed at it.
    Here are some good examples of Multi-player games.

    1. Halo 3
    2. Fuzion Frenzy
    3. Left 4 dead and Left 4 Dead 2.
    4. Mario Party

    Something that player and his friends can enjoy. Many of my friends don't have a PS3, so really there is no point in me actually reviewing something I don't do and can not do. Because honestly, I only play with friends online. Because it's my opinion of the game, if you don't agree with the way I did something, or the way I reviewed please write a better review and post it somewhere :) Thank you and Have a nice day.

  • Star trek online is the only game that interests m ethis quarters. These days i usually back-buy games i missed out on the first time round, It's alot cheaper.

    Yeah, I played this before, it's ace, Only Q1 for Europe though, for NA it's May.

  • Mass Effect 2, Halo: Reach, Bioshock 2, Aliens vs. Predator, Final Fantasy 13.

    Also to be released fairly soon are the Return to Ostagar DLC for Dragon Age: Origins, and the Awakening expansion pack.

    Some good looking games scheduled for late in the year: Fable III, Alpha Protocol, Fallout New Vegas and Crackdown 2.

    Halo Reach is a Fall release, same as all of the other Halo titles (bar Wars), though the beta for Reach is due in spring, covering parts of Q1 and Q2.
