At Last! My Most Anticipated Games of 2012: Part the fourth

At long last, you’re finally able to read Part 4 of the games I’m looking forward to the most this year. This is the second half of games on Vita in existing series that I can’t wait to play, so without any more blabbering, here it is.

1. Uncharted: Golden Abyss – There’s no doubt that this game had to make it onto the list. If you don’t like Uncharted, you don’t like action movies, because that’s essentially what Uncharted is: just one giant action move. Even though sometimes the shooting can be a bit “meh”, the setpieces, plot, and the constant back-and-forth between Drake and whoever his current companion is is always great. Golden Abyss is a prequel to Drake’s Fortune, a bit of Young Indy, if you will, but thankfully, it’s looking quite better than Indiana Jones’s young adventures. I can already hear the Uncharted theme song playing.

Nathan Drake probably has inhumanly calloused hands.

2. Super Stardust Delta – There are few greater handheld games than a good top-down shooter. While I’m sure many hardcore Super Stardust fans will want my head for calling it just a top-down shooter, that’s essentially what it is, although an incredibly well-made one. While I couldn’t get into Stardust on the PS3, Delta looks like a great game to pick up, beat your high score, upload it to your leaderboard, and then hop onto the bus you’ve been waiting for, and for that, I’m incredibly excited. If they can make this game affordable, it will be downloaded onto my Vita’s memory card for sure.

Pretty colors, giant explosions, and score bonuses. What more could you ask for?

3. LEGO Batman 2 – DC Superheroes – You might feel incredibly bad while doing so, but you have to admit that the LEGO games are fun in a little kid kind of “punching people and building things” way. Add DC Superheroes to that, and I’m in. The first LEGO Batman game was a really fun and solid game with the ability to play as any of the classic Batman villains and having to use the many different gadgets of Batman and Robin to solve puzzles. Plus, I’m pretty sure this is the first game in which you can play as both Batman and Superman, so if that doesn’t excite your inner nerd, there’s something wrong with you. This is also the only game on this list coming to both the Vita and the PS3, so you can pick your platform of choice. I would recommend the Vita version so you never have to have a woman walk in on you playing a LEGO game.

If this doesn't excite you on some level......

So there you have it, folks. Overall, that’s 13 games that you should be looking forward to this year. I hope that I’ve opened your eyes to at least one game that you’ll pick up now. In other news, I’ve started playing Resistance 2. It’s pretty interesting, because it’s a VERY different game from Fall of Man, in both good ways and bad ways, but you’ll hear more about that later. Until then, thanks for reading!
