If you went ahead and looked at the release schedule for 2012, you would notice that the entire year follows one particular theme - comeback. Franchises that haven't seen the light of day for years or even entire genres are making their way back for at least one more foray before this console generation concludes. We've already seen Twisted Metal bring the car combat genre into the fray, and even today marks the return of SSX. While it is nice to see these games come back after a long hiatus, there are other genres that could also use a comeback of their own.

There's a rule of thumb that if you make a good survival horror game, you set the standard for what future types of games should follow -- and that's been proven with Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Dead Space and so forth.  But it's also said that an awful one can set its own standard, one that developers should avoid at all costs.  And sadly, we already have such a game two weeks in 2012 with AMY, a game that gets absolutely everything so wrong, dying seems like a better alternative.


2011 brought plenty of gaming triumphs, but it also brought a few headaches along for the ride, naggling issues that were a bit hard to get over.  As a service to our readers, we've decided to present a list of things that we could do without in video games for 2012.  It's not too late for game companies to get a jump-start on these ideas, which would easily make their products way better.


There are a lot of cool retro collectibles making the rounds these days, whether they're classic gaming posters, packaged game consoles that feature various classic games that you can play at any time, and various other things.  But one cool thing we noticed over the weekend was over at the 72 Pins website -- classic NES retro art printed onto cartridges.  The only catch?  This art is based on more current game releases.


The creepy Resident Evil atmosphere is definitely on the rise this September.  Along with the official reveal of Capcom's latest Resident Evil game, RE 6, it's just been confirmed that two long-awaited high-definition remakes will be digitally available that month as well.


In a small dark theater in a corner of the E3 2011 show floor, Capcom showed off a new video preview of Resident Evil Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS. The new Resident Evil is a return to the series survival horror roots, with the addition of the improved engine the series adopted from Resident Evil 4 onward. The game acts as a "prequel" to the events of Resident Evil 5, focusing on series originator Jill Valentine's search for Chris Redfield on an abandoned cruise ship.


E3 2011 is over and done with, and my brain and hands are mush from the non stop demos and video presentations. Now that I've had a few days to decompress, here are the top 5 most enjoyable demos on the E3 show floor.


Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a co-op squad based take on the Resident Evil universe. Raccoon City takes place in the well traveled time period of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 Nemesis, with the player taking control of a member of Umbrella Security Services. Umbrella's G-Virus caused much of the populace to become pekish for human flesh, and the evil corporation sent you and your team in to clean things up.


Months since the release of the hauntingly beautiful teaser trailer, the general gaming public still know little about Techland's upcoming zombie slasher Dead Island. After playing a timed demo on the E3 show floor, I've got a good grasp on what exactly walks these beaches.

 A good number of zombie games have been coming out in the past few years - Resident Evil 5, Dead Nation, Dead Rising, and the Left 4 Dead series to name a few. It also appears to be the trend to have "Dead" in the title somewhere too. I guess it comes with the territory. Dead Island looks to join the crowd, having players fight their way off of an island that becomes infested with zombies while on vacation. The game is set to be shown off at E3, but earlier this week a teaser trailer and new screenshots have been released to build up anticipation for its official showing.
