There are a bunch of awesome games coming out...

Mass Effect
Assassin's Creed
Ace Combat 6
Mercenaries 2
Kane and Lynch: Dead Men
Blacksite: Area 51

That's just the stuff I can remember. Over $400 in games. I think I need to try GameFly.

Bring it on! Depending whether if MS releases the new Xbox 360 Falcon chip this year, I want to buy a 360. Mass Effect is probably the top game that I'd want for it that comes out this year. For Wii I'll be getting Bleach, Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Galaxy, Guitar Hero 3, off the top of my head.

Hell yeah! I might trade in my Elite for the new 'Falcon' edition, though I'll wait and see until they are released if it's worth it.

Games I want and hope to buy...

Mass Effect (Most anticipated for sure)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Assassin's Creed
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
Halo 3 (I haven't gotten it yet)
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga (yes, I intend to get it)
Turok (pending on when it's released)
Super Smash Bros. Brawl

And there are a bunch being released early spring as well, that I want.

My bank account will be taking a significant hit between Mass Effect, CoD 4, Assassins Creed, and more :X

Niner with your looks you could easily make enough for the games on Phreak's list in just one weekend of...work.

lol nice edit

Mass Effect and Ace Combat 6 are definitely the ones on my list.

10-06-2007, 08:49 PM
Mass Effect and Crysis ftw!!!

and yes, i'm currently suffering from a lack of funding. if any of you would like to donate to the cause, i'd be more than happy to point you in the right direction. :)

Mass Effect - the game I shall buy at the release day!

GTAIV - Not that anxious, but I will probably get it too, later.

Assassin's Creed - Another must! Though I heard that the media was a little too unsure about the combat on the game. But until further notice I'll get this too. Perhaps at the release month?

Ace Combat 6 - i do hope this isn't like Belkan War. i just didn't liked that game and I hope that this one is more like Ace 4. Will get too, but there are other games on the queue.

Mercenaries 2 - Well, maybe I'll get. Just don't know why, as this isn't one of my priorities.

Kane and Lynch: Dead Men - I've heard many good comments about this one, including intriguing storyline. Will get, but, again, there are others on the queue.

Blacksite: Area 51 - I may even consider buying it, but no, not my priority at all.

And, needless to say, I'll have totake out the scorpion that lives on my pockets and wallet...

I am going to be broke for the holidays. No christmas gifts for my family! I have student loans bills , auto insurance bills and gas for my truck that come first. Plus there is no video games coming out this year that I want. I only buy PS2 games. There is no star wars video game coming out for PS2. The only thing coming out from Lucasarts for PS2 is Thrillville 2 Off the Rails. I won't touch that game. I did not even buy the first game. I am optimistic for spring with The Force Unleashed. After that release I am not sure! Just keeping my hopes alive that Lego Indiana Jones is coming out for PS2.

I would like Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, but sadly, it's only for Xbox 360 (stupid Microsoft, stealing a great series! I can't get a 360 for two games (Halo 3 and Ace 6)

I liked Ace Combat 5 on the Playstation 2....

But my wallet is ready to take the hit...assuming I can find it (oh, no!)

10-08-2007, 07:41 PM
I did not know they are releasing a Mercenaries 2. Lucasarts does not have any information on their website about it.

To get any games I'd first need to buy a Wii, or an Xbox 360, or both :)

Once I did buy them, I wouldn't have any money left for games. :(

10-10-2007, 02:23 AM
I'm aiming for Unreal Tournament 3, possibly at it's release date. That's the ONE game I'm actually going to buy immediatly.
Of course, there is Assassin's Creed, but I've heard rumours of a release date that's been pushed back to sometime during Spring for the PC. Which is the only console I use, except an old PS1.
Maybe Crysis as well.
Other than that, I can think of no games.
Possibly the already-released World in Conflict, which I probably will get from my brother.

10-16-2007, 01:44 PM
Even if I did buy any of those, I'd need a new computer to play on because this one is just out of the world (a bunch of nVidia-worshipping, crack-dealing aliens sold it to me). And know why I'm not buying a new computer? Those ****ing aliens stole my wallet.

10-17-2007, 11:41 PM
I want to get Force Unleashed & Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga for DS...my computer is so old it hasn't been able to handle many new games for a while now. I'll be hoping to get them as Christmas presents, or I'll have to wait until I get a higher-paying job.

juiced2, jericho and more

10-22-2007, 09:25 AM
I have no money since I have to save up to go to germany, oh well, not like my computer can run any of the games anyways.

No games for me, wanna save it up, gonna be father 2nd time real soon. ^^

10-28-2007, 04:23 PM
Ace Combat 5 wasn't bad. So I might try out Ace Combat 6. Other than that I will probably get The Force Unleashed on the PS2.

10-29-2007, 01:14 PM
I wait until I can get a bargain. Games are expensive and I have important things to worry about like tuition *plays Beethoven's No 5*

Christmas will see me scouring bargain racks. :D

11-01-2007, 01:26 PM
assasains creed, Haze, ratchet and clank future and elder scrolls oblivion will all be great on PS3
