    I have to admit I picked up none of them. But I did pick up Max Payne 3 and Asura’s Wrath, if that counts. Will probably get Sorcery and Dragon’s Dogma at some point.

      I will most likely pick up Doctor Who, seems like a great game to play couch co-op, specially since there’s no online co-op :D
