Apparently, Ubisoft wants to make Watchdogs a signature titles for themselves. Not sure what this means, but I'm assuming they want it all 'in house' rather then get an outside team to work on it?
It means they want to turn it into a yearly franchise the way they're trying to go with Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft; trying to become the new Activision since 2011.
Personally I'm looking forward to Bayonetta 2. Oh wait, no I'm not because it got canned due to a heady combination of Sega being dicks and the majority of the gaming populous having bad opinions about action games.
I'm not bitter. Not bitter at all.
Darksiders 2 will probably be good. I hope they refine the combat system since it already has a decent amount of depth and finesse and also hope they don't go overboard with the new bells and whistles. Darksiders was the best Zelda game in many, many years and they don't really need to tool around with that formula too much for the sequel in my opinion.
Fire Emblem 3DS is probably my most anticipated thing in the history of anything ever, I'm actually going to buy a 3DS for this game despite my previous "No region free? No sale!" stance. I'm a capricious bitch, don't judge me.
The lack of region free on a handheld is still utterly unacceptable though.
And that's a pretty depressingly small list of games to be excited about all things considered.
Oh and I guess I'm very tentatively excited for the new War for Cybertron game. However that depends entirely on if there is any truth to the rumours I've heard about the game having no co-op. If that's the case then it goes from day one to "buy it when it's £10, preferably preowned to ensure my money never reaches the hands of people who signed off on a decision that bad.". Which would be a shame but I never loved Transformers enough to be enslaved to them so I won't shed many tears about it.
