GRID 2

PlayStation3™/Xbox360™/PC [Racing]

Completely taking this generation of technology to it's limits, Grid 2 debuts the newest instance of the Codemasters graphical engine - the EGO 3.0 Engine. From dust particles and smoky burn outs, bright lights reflecting on the hood, realistic damage algorithms, and just the sheer polished presentation, driving in a video game hasn't looked this real before. In addition, the introduction of the new "TrueFeel" control scheme accentuates handling realism making Grid 2 the perfect balance between an arcade driving and simulation. The sequel to the highly acclaimed original, Grid 2 will be release on May 28th.

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: KAMIGAMI NO TRIFORCE 2

Nintendo 3DS™ [Zelda. Zelda. ZELLLLDA!]

For many Zelda fans, there has always been 2 common factors. A special place in their heart containers for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and the empty void in said heart containers of why there was no sequel in the style of such a masterpiece. Well, after hearing twelve years of annoying monotone warning beeps, Nintendo delivers DIRECT TO YOU. The sequel to LTTP has been announced! Set in the same universe of of the original, new mechanics and puzzles take place implementing 3D resulting in a challenge Zelda fans have waited for. Chickens, pots and tropes quiver in fear! DooDooDoo-DOOOO!

DARK SOULS II

PlayStation3™/Xbox360™ [Sequel to the Best Game Ever]

Hi, Gold Mountain here. Don't mean to hijack the preorder news, but as it goes, I'm the resident Play-Asia Dark Souls fanboy - it makes sense for me to write this as PA fears my nerd rage.

I got Dark Souls for a birthday gift back in 2010 and hyperbole aside, even if my future trophy-wife bought me some lavish present with my own stacks for the same occasion, I'd still have to say that Dark Souls was the best present ever. Seriously. I love this game. Long story short, what this game represents in today's "everyone is winrar attitude" is a veritable breath of fresh air; the sense achievement from finishing this game is unique in its delicately paced approach towards punishing nostalgia. 

Word on the street is that Dark Souls 2 is coming out Feb 2014.

JOLLY COOPERATION!!! PRAISE THE SUN!!!
