Christmas has come and gone, and now we get prepared for New Years. Hard to believe that 2011 is almost done, but next year should be just as exciting, if not more so. I wish everyone had a great Christmas or whatever it is that you celebrate and spent some quality time with family, friends, and loved ones.

Next year will see the launch of the Wii U and we’ll be getting more information about Microsoft’s and Sony’s new systems as well. E3 will be pretty crazy and the word on the street is that we’ll here something about Microsoft’s new console at the CES next month. The Vita will also be launched in other territories so not only our friends in Japan will have all the fun. This is just on the system side of things.

Then there are the games. I’m eagerly awaiting Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3. Both games are looking to be pretty cool. Blizzard should be putting the finishing touches on Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft will get it’s new expansion as well. Here’s to hoping that TERA will also get released after so many release date changes. These are just the games we know about. There will be lots of changes, some good, and so bad, but we’ll be there every step of the way.

Thanks for reading and visiting HeiroGraphix Game Journal. Let 2012 be as full and fun as 2011. Happy New Year, guys!
