The EXCLUSIES: My Top Exclusives of 2012

2012 was not the year of exclusives, as system cycles come to a close and developers begin a season of hibernation until the elusive next generation of consoles choose to appear.

Spelunky |XBLA

A frustrating and challenging, yet addicting and rewarding rogue-like dungeon crawler, Spelunky is a remastered independent PC title. With a simple concept and complex randomizing design, Spelunky is a game that charms all ages, easily digested with its pleasant art style, and entrancing soundtrack.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings |360

Ported over from the PC role-playing sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of King, is a tale of Geralt of Rivia as he searches for a king’s killer. Intelligently written, designed meticulously, brutally challenging, and a bit archaic, The Witcher proves that gaming’s older ideas haven’t lost they’re merit, and in fact hold tighter than newer trends.


Unfinished Swan |PSN

An emotional thought provoking tale about a child searching for purpose inside his mother’s paintings, The Unfinished Swan will touch your heart with its unifying artistic themes, simple and fulfilling gameplay and storybook presentation.

Twisted Metal |PS3

A revival of Playstation’s classic franchise, Twisted Metal is a return to form, stripping the superfluous elements that have weighted down the later experiences in the franchise. Focusing on multiplayer combat and the players, Twisted Metal is an streamlined experience, focusing on gameplay and enjoyment instead of expanding canon.
