Video Games I Expect the Most This Year

As far as I have observed, video game developers tend to release their new titles toward the end of the year – in time for the Christmas shopping season (that starts with the Black Friday, the first Friday after Thanksgiving). This usually means that the most anticipated games of the year are released in the late fall, in time for gamers to purchase them (and blame it on Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever) or to buy the appropriate hardware necessary to run them. Again, for Christmas…

In this year’s offer there are three games I anticipate the most, all of them set to release either in October, or in November. Two of the three will surely make it under the Christmas tree. The third one will be a browser-based game, but I expect to play it nonetheless. Let’s see which the three chosen ones

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

I have an affinity for futuristic games – maybe this is why the CoD series was never one of my favorites. This has nothing to do with the games themselves, which I appreciate a lot, but I always felt there is something – a hint sci-fi maybe – missing from the game. Finally, the latest CoD title – Advanced Warfare – changes that.

The new CoD will have a story set in the near future. The missions, the weapons (hundreds of them, if I read it right) and the enemies will be more advanced than the ones in any other CoD title, and so will be the equipment worn by the ‘soldiers’ – say hello to HUDs, jetpacks and smart grenades. I can hardly wait to put my hands on this one.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

The third title in the Borderlands series will also be quite different from the other two. First of all, its story will not happen on Pandora, but on a moon with no atmosphere and a much lower gravity. Huge jumps, oxygen-powered jetpacks, laser weapons and lots of new landscapes to explore – plus four new characters to play with, including the first appearance by Claptrap the Fragtrap… wow!

I have always been a huge fan of the Borderlands games, and this new title already looks like one I will enjoy. A lot…

Game of Thrones video slot machine

Microgaming, a developer with a portfolio of hundreds of titles and a history of two decades behind it, is preparing a new video slot machine based on the successful HBO TV series Game of Thrones. There is no word about the exact look and feel of the game just yet, and no exact release date has been revealed, but the company’s CEO has promised for it to be epic, worthy of the title it bears. I expect the game to be released at the beginning of November in Microgaming-powered online gaming outlets. Play the latest casino games Red flush casino – this will surely be one of them soon.
