...and it's not even November!

Mass Effect 3...3/6
Birds of Steel...3/13
Aliens: Colonial Marines.....3/31
Ghost Recon Future Soldier...5/22 (I still have to give it a shot)
Spec Ops: the Line...6/26 (or did the beta last year suck on this one?)

I've got all but Spec Ops pre-ordered. More than all of last year I think. LOL
A nice variety of game types. Some have $10 gift card options, and BoS is just $40 to begin with.

GRAW1 and 2 were far fetched... it all depends on options... I still think GRAW2 is the nest tactical game on console... why, because you can turn off all the aids and future stuff...and with all them off, a damn fine game.

Ya, way to many coming up... I pre-ordered ME3 and GR, but thats it so far... I saw some gameplay video from Spec Ops... looks like counter strike type gameplay... will watch, but maybe just a rental for the review.

I'm with you Magnum. GRAW2 had its flaws, like the floaty imprecise targeting, but it was a treasure trove of MP gaming. About 50 maps, many retro favorites...all for free. The best host options for setting up matches just how you want, PvP or co-op scenarios. Turn on friendly fire, turn off all friend or foe indicators, turn off the UAV and have a killer round of blind siege. And of course NO UNLOCKABLES, or rank. You weren't penalized for playing a private room of 16. There were perks, based on the role you took on, but nothing that imbalanced the game. Most people didn't even know they were there.

I'll get GR since it's been such a long weight and to give it the benefit of the doubt. Once. Conviction wasn't nearly what I wanted Splinter Cell to be, but it turned out to be really good on it's own terms.

I would add a couple of more games:

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (3/27) - Even though it's basically the same game every year, I just feel compelled to give EA more of my money every year WinkNGrin

MLB 12: The Show (3/6) - If you like baseball games, this is a sure bet year after year. Not to mention that it has one of the "chicken and beer" guys on the cover so it has to be great right?

it was the reason I bought my PS3 last year, never made it through the full season, just too many games to play all 9 innings.. I hated using Dice K and his stupid hip shake! banghead

So what makes a good Tactical game? Of course you need to define what that is.
