    SEGA announced Phantasy Star Online 2 coming west in early 2013, just 5 days after it was officially released in Japan. For PC, PS Vita, and iOS/Android?! X3

    I think a very important one you missed was the death of Nintendo Power. It was a huge part of many people's childhood's and is showing the continued downfall of print media.

    Shoot, hit enter before adding Kickstarter.... the program that so far has exactly a 0 success rate of making a significant product. It's pathetic.

    Gotta disagree with a few of these things. First off, you took it easy on the Vita. Did anyone even know it was still being sold? That it wasn't discontinued already? ArmA was not a story that defined 2012. It was a non-story that before this article, 7 people in the world heard about and only 2 people cared about. Were you that desperate for a seventh item? The Cafe did NOT start the new era in gaming. If you wanted to say anything, you could say that the Revolution started the last era in gaming and the Cafe closed out this era in gaming, but in no way can you insult anyone by saying that the Cafe was the start of a new era.

    1. You are wrong. 2. You are ignorant. 3. You are wrong. Seems like more than 2 people care about people getting jailed for no reason -> Think a little before posting bro, you make yourself appear sociopathic...

    Glad to see Kickstarter on here! Go Nintendo!

    If you guys wish for a better future for the Vita, then start wishing for [more and] better Vita games. Devs keep making games for the PSP, when they should just move on to the better hardware.

    I think Kickstarters are by far the most significant news and headlines that have shaken the industry, and provided those promised games and projects deliver, it could shape an entirely new direction for the industry. That, and I honestly am still on the fence that the Wii U can be considered next gen. Slice it however you want, but aside from that tablet controller, (WHICH is yet to be seen if it can truly reach the potential and innovation it promises, far more promising was the motion control of the wii... and look how that worked.) there isn't really that much next gen in that machine more so than just catching up to the existing machines. HD graphics, Working online with no friend codes? sure, that's great for people that only owned a wii, but for anyone with a 360 or a PS3, that's 7-8 year old news... We'll see though, i guess. Also, no matter where you sit on the whole ME3 Ending thing, it was still very damn big news, and it was unprecedent, so I definitely vote that as a runner up.

    The Mass Effect 3 ending debacle would be my mention for this list. There was so much pissing and moaning that it rivaled the Left 4 Dead boycotting. I still think that people took the ending thing to seriously, though. It definitely wasn't the best ending that it could have been, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Bioware is still supporting the game with DLC for the story and well developed, polished, FREE content for the Multiplayer that I still play to this day. It's for sure one of my top games of the year, no matter how much people may have hated its ending.

    I didn't really think about how crazy the whole Ouya thing was until it was framed in this many people paying so much money for just a proof of concept! And the internet complains at the price of some XBLA games...
  • tehtimeisnow - December 10, 2012 3:40 p.m.

    how dare those artecles talk bad abuot zinga there one of the few good gane compenies rite now im seruios cuz they give me amazeing games that only costs a doller. and y is u guys have wiiu even on that list? i buoght a wiiu and taked it back to the store the next day cuz it was a horrable overpirced undnerpoewred machene that just uses bad waggel gimmecks

    Heh, I know you are just trolling, but there seem to be some problems with your post. Mainly, if one thought a console was overpriced they would likely decide that before purchasing it, and the Wii U doesn't use Wiimotes as its default controller.
  • Nettacki - December 10, 2012 2:16 p.m.

    We all want the Vita to succeed, right? Then maybe people should be made more aware that there ARE great games on the Vita, like, say, Ragnarok Odyssey and Gravity Rush.
  • BladedFalcon - December 10, 2012 5:19 p.m.

    ...That's two games, and the general consensus is that Ragnarok Odyssey is FAR from great.

    It's a shame about Amalur, I thought it was pretty good. I didn't expect that whole disaster to happen.
  • RebornKusabi - December 10, 2012 2 p.m.

    Since everyone is going to continue ****-riding Mass Effect 3 for Game of the Year awards and how "entitled" their fans were about those hilariously poorly written endings... keeping in mind their money gauges the success and failure of that terrible series, and critical reception meant nothing to Okami and Bayonetta. Obviously the assumption is that I hate the game because of it's "amazing and thought provoking" ending. Wrong, it was when the game kept breaking on me, glitched constantly, had serious narrative flaws beyond the ending, constant immersion breaking model issue (I'm talking uncanny eyeballs and almost Silent Hill-esque mannequin limbs on people) and I had to replace my 360 copy 3 times because it broke beyond playable at multiple points during its playtime. Oh and there was also this when I was playing the game:

    Sony! sort out the f**king memory cards and i'll think about a vita! im not paying an extra 40 to whatever euro for a memory card with the same data as a bloody micro SD! get your god-damn priorities straight
  • Sjoeki - December 10, 2012 12:17 p.m.

    I agree with the mass effect issues, the ending and your choices not influencing the ending, although they influenced the entire mass effect 3 experience and I didn't really have a problem with it, specially not after the extended cut ending. Another thing was taking things way out of proportion, sleeping dogs lets you punch women and gives you points for it! Lara get's raped in the new Tomb Raider?! What's with all that extreme violence against women in the hitman trailer?! Think almost every gamer will agree with me that these things are not acceptable in real life. But isn't that a big part of why people play games? I don't mean the rape thing or punching women but to do things we can't do in real life. I've played alot of Mario games but I never went to a zoo to jump on turtles.
