I have huge expectations for 2013. This is the year where my generation finally rules the movie industry, the year when co-op gameplay finally get the attention it deserves, the year when we finally get flying cars.. No not really. But hey, two out of three isn’t bad
Movies to look out for 2013
For movies 2013 seems to be a great year if you’re a sci-fi lover – and you are. Gravity, Elysium, Oblivion, After Earth, Pacific Rim, Singularity, Jupiter Rising, The Prototype, World War Z, Cloud Atlas, Life of Pi, The Host, R.I.P.D. Google them!
And hopefully a couple of short films turned full-length. Like The Gift, Tomo and The Gate.
I you have no idea what I’m talking about, be sure to check out these excellent short films below.
And on a side note, Splice director Vincenzo Natali was officially attached to adapt William Gibson’s ground-breaking novel about the sprawl, artificial intelligence, hackers and intrigue – Neuromancer. If this film actually gets made it would be awesome.
Co-op gaming for 2013
In gaming there’s really nothing groundbreaking ahead. Battlefields 4 and the likes doesn’t really move me. There’s really no game that feels “new” or different. It’s the same adaptation of old ideas in mmo or fps wrapping. Fun of course but nothing really new.
Co-op gaming seems to getting the attention it deserves finally though. With Dead Space 3 and Alien Colonial Marines supporting full length co-op gameplay just to mention some. There are even rumors of a Assassins Creed co-op for 2013 but don’t quote me on that. Other titles to look out for are: Brothers: A tale of two sons, Arma 3, Dead Island: Riptide and with EA’s recent announcement on how all their games will have online components, expectations are leaning toward a coop mode for Dragon Age 3.
Rumor has it; Games Workshop has announced that games developer Full Control has started work on a new Space Hulk game for the PC. Due for release in 2013, Space Hulk will allow players to take control of a strike force of Blood Angels Terminators as they make their way through the close confines of the Space Hulk.
