VGA Rundown of the most anticipated titles

VGA Ten is over. With it, we got incredible World Premiers that took our breath away, and most of us scrambling to our wallets to make sure we had cash. A few trailers stood out above the rest.

Phantom Pain

Could this be a new Metal Gear Solid game? The character crawling along the floor certainly looks like it could be Snake. The gameplay seems like it would fit one of their titles. And Moby Dick studios seems like it comes out of left field, considering the only thing we have on record for them is this one trailer. Unless this is a brand new company, with one of the most kickass trailers, which is all gameplay mind you, it's looking more and more like a MGS surprise reveal.
That is a Unicorn. Made of Fire. I'm done.
South Park: The Stick of Truth

This could be one of the greatest trailers at the VGA's. South Park is one of my favorite cartoon series, and this game looks like it could be huge. With a wizard, warriors, paladins, Elves, a High Jew Elf, a Princess (Kenny), and apparently a Star Trek cadet, this game looks incredibly badass.

BioShock Infinite

This kicked serious ass. We've been waiting for this game for a year, and with multiple delays, it seemed like we would never get to see it. Well, that ended last night with you gliding along cables, slashing enemies throats, summoning crows to attack your foes, and a gigantic 'handyman' popping up to rip apart anything in it's way. Great Job guys. Killer video.

Dark Souls II

One of the hardest games in the last few years, Dark Souls was a nightmare. But it had one of the greatest stories that we've played. Dark Souls II seems to add to that story and make it even more of a beautiful series. Walking through the bones of dragons, exploring dark caverns, fighting spells with cold, hard steel. This game has all the makings of an incredible RPG.

Gears of War: Judgment

This trailer was just ridiculous. 30 days after the locust emerge and they've overrun an entire nation. Cities are burning, Gears lay dead and dismembered. New enemies that look like creatures from hell are swarming the world of Sera. How do we stop the carnage and devastation of the Horde led by the ruthless Karn? Can they even be stopped at this point? Will Kilo squad even make a dent? Will they even survive?

VGA Ten left us with more questions than answers. But we loved every minute of it.
