    Only Splinter Cell looks like the only interesting one out of that list to me. Nier sounds kinda cool but I had never heard of it before now.

    • DuracellDurrell says:

      agreed. Splinter cell was a great series, and i look forward to this game, but the demo really scares me. seems like they changed too much

      • Das Kalk says:

        I played the Co-op mode at PAX East and it was great!

    • Phil says:

      Nier? sounds interesting but I have not heard about it at all before seeing it here

      guess Square-Enix was focused on FFXIII but still

  2. Crazeye0 says:

    Sherlock Holmes VS Jack the Ripper? YES PLEASE!!!

    • xLAS3RP01NT3Rx says:

      That might be kind of interesting, actually.
      Although after taking a tour of london and knowing what Jack the Rippa’ has done, they might make a few adjustments to the story.

  3. BFalcon says:

    I’m sorry, but Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper? Seriously?

    • Crazeye0 says:

      Hell yeh! gonna be like, the second best game of the year!

      (Sarcasm, it’s gonna be naff)

      • augustelc says:

        could be revolutionary, could be interesting, could be something new. or it might suck huge balls

        • xLAS3RP01NT3Rx says:

          Big, meaty ones.
          Im going for that option.

        • t0rm3n7 says:

          so is bsangel

        • bs angel says:

          You had me at big and meaty.

        • HellCat says:

          Not hairy and sweaty?

        • augustelc says:

          extra vinegary

        • Eternalist says:

          Actually, they’re somewhat salty.

  4. NakedScooter says:

    Splinter Cell Conviction is the only game on the list that has me interested. I pre-ordered it about month ago.

  5. StuntDouble2483 says:

    Kinda glad Red Dead Redemption got delayed…I’d have to hate to choose between that and Conviction.

    As for Nier…one JRPG a year is good enough for me, and I still haven’t beaten FFXIII (though I’m not really trying, either…keep getting sidetracked on Pulse).
