With the peak season of video game releases upon us, it’s no surprise that avid gamers like me have a long list of picks they are itching to dive into. Here are a few that I can’t wait to try out.
- “Batman: Arkham City” – Although this game has already been released, I haven’t yet had the chance to swoop around Gotham as the Dark Knight. This sequel plays on many of the popular features of its precursor, while adding new options and an expansive sandbox setup. Release: October 2011.
- “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” – I just heard about this game a few weeks ago, but it looks absolutely amazing. “Reckoning” is an open-world RPG set in an expansive fantasy universe created by author R.A. Salvatore. Release: February 7, 2012.
- “Dragon Age III” – BioWare has not officially announced the release of the third game in this fantasy RPG series, but that hasn’t slowed the speculation from fans. Hopefully the third installment will combine the best features of the first two games and perhaps offer cameos from the Hero of Ferelden and the Champion of Kirkwall, among others. Release: Unknown.
