44. Total War: Napoleon - PC, February 19

Creative Assembly is the mac daddy of strategy gaming; Napoleon Bonaparte was the mac daddy of invading foreign countries and forcing people to eat his tasty cheeses. Put the two together, and you may just get the mac-est father in the history of historical real-time strategy. The Total War team has been on a roll for some time now, so our expectations are riding high for this sixth entry in the series. The level of detail here will be so high that every soldier in a given unit should have their own unique face… a face that will no doubt be contorted into a mask of despairing anguish as your tactical incompetence sends yet more troops to their digital doom.

43. Aliens vs Predator - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, February 19

It should be called Aliens vs. Predator vs. Marines, really, because this Relentless-developed gore-em-up will bring with it the power of three. Sure, each race has its own single-player campaign, cleverly interwoven to form a rug dripping with acid blood, but we're in it for the multiplayer. Balance will be the key. An overpowered race will break the game, but, conversely, if the Predator is nerfed to within an inch of its life, then Relentless will have gone too far. The developer is walking a fine line - one misstep and it could send the whole show plummeting towards that safety net thing tight-rope walkers like to fall on. But we have faith; faith in Relentless and faith in dismemberment and skull polishing. Definitely not game over, man.

I'm looking forward to the new Alien vs Predator game. A little concerned that it is Rebellion at the helm in developing it though.

For me...

Alan Wake (just to see if they will ever finish and release it).

Also BioShock 2, Dead Rising 2, Dead Space 2, Deus Ex 3, Fable III, Fallout: New Vegas, God of War III, Mass Effect 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (will Ubisoft learn like they did with Assassin's Creed?), Splinter Cell: Conviction and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

A lot of sequels in the list, I know. :(

My main ones for this year are Gran Turismo 5 and The Last Guardian, though it hasn't been mentioned if that will make it or not this year.

I will also be buying;
Heavy Rain
Alan Wake(depending on reviews and a demo)
Modnation Racers
MAG(depending on reviews and another go on the beta if possible)
Probably one of the football games
The new F1 game
Crackdown 2(when it's discounted)

So a pretty good year if they all make it. I'll probably pick up more games as the year goes on.

Mass Effect 2
Two Worlds: The Temptation
Final Fantasy XIII
Alpha Protocol
Crackdown 2
Record of Agarest War
Medal of Honor: Beardy Guy

Those are the only games that are tingling my gamey senses at present, and only ME and FF are definites so far. Probably a good thing too, I'm still playing catch up on my older games as far back as 2007.

Love the description for 'Total War: Napoleon'. Made me :D

I only recently picked up 'Empire' in Steam's winter sale and I'm loving every minute of it. So, I'm one of those who can't wait for Napoleon to turn up.

AvP is looking brilliant. Besides looking brilliant comes down to how much fun and the fear it drives into the player when playing as Marine determines it fate with me.

Dante's Inferno is a goooood hack & slasher! Been playing the demo a lil bit and I am impressed by it. This one will sneak up on people on how good it is.
