November 2012: Which games do you urge for?
So this time I’m giving away two copies of the newest expansion pack for World of Warcraft, Mist of Pandaria.
Scissored from the british Amazon website:
Alliance warships prowl the seas. Horde armies thunder across Kalimdor. Tensions between these factions edge closer to erupting in a savage war that threatens to consume all of Azeroth. Against this backdrop of impending conflict, an uncharted island mysteriously appears.
Shrouded in fog since the world was sundered more than ten thousand years ago, the ancient realm of Pandaria has remained unspoiled by war. Its lush forests and cloud-ringed mountains are home to a complex ecosystem of indigenous races and exotic creatures — including the enigmatic pandaren.
All but the bravest pandaren explorers have been hidden from the world for thousands of years. Now, in the aftermath of the events of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Pandaria’s heroes are stepping forward to declare their allegiance to either the Alliance or the Horde and share the extraordinary secrets of their ancient martial arts with the world.
Now to the interesting: Which cancelled games and what franchises would you like to see get a comeback? This question are not console specific.
For me, I’d like to see the following;
- Another Mirror’s Edge game.
I loved playing the first game, the rumor mill has been going on, but the latest, confirmed news is that they are not working on it, but they’ll love to see the franchise continue.
- The Just Cause series should carry on.
With the big open world and very fun sandbox game that includes some weird physics, this franchise begs for another game.
Rockstar announced this back at E3 in 2009. They haven’t cancelled it yet, but looking at that they’ve since the announcement has released LA. Noire, RDR and now have GTA V well underway, we might look at a very underprioritised game, that might have been cancelled unofficially. Wiki page is still up which makes some kind of hope.
- The Portal series must go on
… pretty please? I need to experience more of this magnificent first person puzzler, with one the worlds best humor to spice it all up.
- We need another Burnout game
There haven’t been any Burnout game since Paradise. I loved that game to death, especially the online multiplayer challenges that you had to do in collaboration with each other. I also loved the earlier games, in particular Takedown which focused heavily on crashing and racing. Criterion is busy with the NFS games, lately Most Wanted that is out today here in Europe, and I’m hoping they’ll turn to the Burnout series now. They told The Guardian that they wanted to get back on the Burnout series someday.
