    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm most excited about Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins which is out on the 3DS in three weeks but isn't on the list. [face_not_talking]

    A mod can add it. I just was unable to find anything other than those.

    Hmm... not looking forward to any of those really, but if i had to choose one. I would go with the Star Trek game. Injustice feels too much like a MK reskin, I don't really know much about Defiance and Dead Island was horrible imo :/

    Cool. If anything else pops up I can write it down on a sheet to keep track.

    Actually not looking forward to any of these.

    I'll pick up the Star Trek game if it's any good but I'm not stupid enough to pre-order a licensed game without seeing reviews.

    Heh, yeah, there are quite a few games out this month: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_in_video_gaming :p

    Defiance is great! It's a TV show with a tie-in mmorpg. I got in on the third beta and it was amazing. I really can't wait for the show to start so I can just how it all ties together, but it's going to be good. I made a thread about it here: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/defiance.50009693/

    Hmm.. for a game based on a TV series, it looks damn good. Very impressive. :)

    It is not based off the TV show they are just in the same universe at the same time.

    I'm really looking forward to Injustice, even though I wish Marvel would hurry up and get a Marvel only fighting game out in this style! Netherrealm is a great studio tho and I do like some DC!

    I played a little of the Defiance beta and thought it was interesting enough to check out, Star Trek I'm unsure of. I want to want it...

    It sort of is. They will tie together and each will have an effect on the other. Like a big event in the series will change the game and they'll do big events in the game with the outcome affecting the show.

    Injustice is a day one buy for me. Dead Island was a great experience on co-op, so I'm sure I'll convince a friend to pick up a copy with me once Steam has a sale for it.
