That time of year is upon us. What games are you buying?


#1

Between now and Jan?

What do you have pre-ordered? What are you on the fence about?

Definite (No preorders):

Fable 3 - 360 (Oct)
Fallout Las Vegas - 360 (Oct)
Arcana Heart 3 - PS3 import(Dec)
Test Drive Unlimited - 360 and PS3 (Jan)

On the fence:

Gran Turismo 5. Alot of limitations.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. No Ferrari.
Metroid Other M. Reviews surprisingly are mixed to low.
WWE SVR 2011. Skipped last year, may again, unless good hacks come out.

I imagine there are some games that some of us are overlooking that we may see mentioned, and add to our own lists.


#2

Haven’t played the demo yet but Vanquish is almost definite, plus the DW FotNS, and don’t really know anything else I’m that interested in.


#3

Will Arcana Heart 3 run on a North American based PS3?


#4

yes. I’m still hoping aksys or atlus or some other quirky publisher brings it over anyway.

this fall I’m getting

definitely:

PS3
castlevania: lords of shadow
sengoku basara
fist of the north star

I was kinda iffy about getting all three, because really - they’re all VERY similar, but each will be awesome in its own way.

360
rock band 3

DS
super scribblenauts

maybe:

smackdown vs. raw 2011


#5

^ Yes.

I bought GT5 Prologue almost a year early by getting the import, and I also bought Battle Fantasia when it came out in 08 for JP.

You will have no problem. I’d hate to get it then find out a US launch is happening soon after. THAT would suck.


#6

Definite:
Vanquish

I really don’t have anything else to look forward to.


#7

Not really anything. I barely play games now.

Once I get dat internetz, I’ll am waiting for that 4 player strider SE game and like two other DL games.


#8

4 player Strider SE?

Must look this up. THAT is why I made this thread. Had no clue. Hope it’s like PSX Strider 2, but with like 4 different Striders. It would be lame to have 4 different colored Hiryu’s.


#9

I have no idea what the title is. But it’s a DLC game where there are 4 different color people who all have different weapons and they run around like strider.


#10

FIFA 11
Gran Turismo 5
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

:coffee:


#11

this game^

will buy that
Vanquish
Halo Reach

thats about it…


#12

That Stider-like game is called Necromachina and its on PSN and XBLA.


#13

Fallout: New Vegas - I love Fallout 3, and this one seems very similar so im sure I’ll love it too. New characters, new story, new weapons and new places to explore. I cant wait! Im not going to pre-order it, I’ll just drive over to target and pick it up.

Other than that nothing else is really interesting me. I want to go rent Metriod: Other M but who knows when I’ll get around to that.


#14

Vanquish and probably Metroid: Other M. Not much else in mind that’s not already out.


#15

Sengoku Basara
Dynasty Warriors: Fist of the North Star
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Other than that, dunno.


#16

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Star Wars The Force Unleashed II
LittleBigPlanet II

I think that’s it.

Edit: Didn’t know Time Crisis was MOVE, fuck that.


#17

Between games I buy myself, my birthday and Christmas it’s looking like this:

Castlevania
Splatterhouse
Force Unleashed 2
Dead Rising 2
Enslaved

Going to be a busy winter as usual.


#18

Golden Sun 3…FINALLY!
Sengoku Basara 3
DJ Hero 2

Bangai O HD Missle Fury if its out this year.

If the new Megaman Universe is out this year I’ll get that too.

Damn didn’t know CV: LOS was coming out this year. Might have to get that too.

Already have Metroid coming in the mail.


#19

I’ve already got preordered/paid off, Castlevania: Lord of Shadows LE, LBP2 CE, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Fan Edition (from the UK), Splatterhouse, Sonic Colors, Super Scribblenauts

Still need to preorder Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Limited Codex Edition, Dead Rising 2 CE (EU/UK version).

Won’t preorder but will definitely pick up RB3 (with the keytar), Vanquish, Disney’s Guilty Party, Gran Turismo 5 LE (even though I’m not a driving/racing game fan), Halo Reach Legendary Edition.

I don’t even want to think of what games came out this past year that I still haven’t picked up: Trauma Team, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Alan Wake LE, Metroid: Other M, NMH2: DS, WarioWare D.I.Y., among many others.


#20

You can still use the GunCon 3 with it instead.

EDIT: Forgot about Golden Sun for DS coming out this year, so I’ll add that one for myself as well.
