The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS): It’s Link’s 25th anniversary celebration this year, so in exchange we’re getting some classics from Nintendo. The N64 classic needs almost no words from me. It’s already an instant buy for every 3DS owner, although I’m not sure anyone is ready for Navi again.
Duke Nukem Forever (PS3, 360, PC): The King is back, baby! Well, judging from early impressions, he might be back in spirit only. After a mythical 14 year development cycle, repeated cancellations and a studio shutdown, Duke will have his time back in the spotlight (even if the spotlight is rusty and the light bulb is burnt out).
Alice: Madness Returns (PS3, 360, PC): American McGee is finally releasing the follow up to his original hit. Alice is returning to Wonderland’s hauntingly beautiful world while bringing the gore that you would expect when encountering blood thirsty psychopaths.
Record of Agarest War Zero (PS3, 360): A lot of people missed the original when it came out last year. The original was one of the most highly received JRPG’s of this generation for its interesting and highly strategic battle system, long story and innovative, if not quirky, “Soul Breeding” system. Expect more of the same goodness.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PS3, 360, Wii, 3DS, DS): Even though this is a movie game, the developer did create the surprising War for Cybertron. This might actually be good.
