    There are some rather major releases coming up within the next year or so, across a miriad of platforms.

    Just kinda curious as to what my fellow boardmates are anticipating.

    For me: Mass Effect 2, TimeSplitters 4, Spore, Left 4 Dead, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Super Smash Bros. Brawl

    - Soul Calibur IV
    - God of War III
    - Starcraft II (But I doubt we'll see this for at least another 3 years)
    - Duke Nukem Forever, LOL!

    On a side note: Mass Effect 2 is confirmed?

    Left 4 Dead and No More Heroes are the only two I can think of, now that the holiday blitz is mostly over.

    I really try to wait to get excited about a game too long before their release, but Fable 2 is in one of my top spots. If I had it my way, and I don't, Fable would have been the Xbox premiere game instead of Halo, and we would have probably seen part 2 instead of Halo 3 with MS pouting money into that. Fable is still my favorite exclusive Xbox title though (not counting its PC release).

    Otherwise, I am a glutton for MAINLINE Final Fantasy titles, and FF13 and Vs 13 I am truly hyped for (again, probably being at least 2 years away before my grubby paws get a hold of either of them).

    Ok, titles in the NEAR future:

    -GTA4
    -Mass Effect (My preorder has been sitting there but I didn't want to start it until I was finished with Assassin's Creed).

    I was thumbing through this month's releases and the only thing that caught my eye was Nights Wii. I wish I could say I was excited, but Im'ma Gamefly that one to be on the safe side.

    Turning to next year, I'm eagerly awaiting the releases of Burnout Paradise and Devil May Cry 4. I just got together with a few friends online last night to play some Burnout Revenge and as always, there were connection issues abound trying to get everyone in the lobby. I can only pray that with as online-centric as Paradise is going to be, that they've really ironed out the kinks in their online system.

    As for DMC4, early on I was less than enthused. After all the good DMC3 did bringing good faith back to the series, to have Capcom up and (what seemed at the time) turn their back on Dante in favor of Nero (who, visually, might as well be Dante) left me jaded. But after following the course of development, I'm on board again and really looking forward to see what all 4 has in store.

    No More Heroes on the Wii is looking pretty good (all things being relative), I'm not sure when we'll see it state-side, but its looking pretty meaty and the recent video of the Wii-motion QTEs looks like it was thoughtfully implemented.

    Past that? Resident Evil 5.

    Ah yes! I forgot about Mafia 2! I really really loved the first game. Im hoping that the second is great with another quality story! :D 

    Also, Farcry 2 is enticing. But Im not convinced about it yet.

    Oh god yes Left 4 Dead! I can not wait for that. Of course we have Metal Gear Solid 4, I've been longing for it since forever it seems. And since buying a 360, it may be the only PS3 game I buy the system for. Well no, there is Killzone 2 too. Burnout Paradise is real soon, and I loves me some Burnout. And who's not looking forward to Grand Theft Auto IV, well aside from those who haven't listed it and those who don't like the GTA games... but I am.

    Since a lot of people are bringing up MGS 4, I wanted to make a comment about the game. It looks amazing- but I REALLY hope they let up on the sneaking and perhaps make it a little more like Assassin's Creed in the way that you can much easier fight off guards if you alarm them, and getting away from them and hiding will allow you to move on much faster the MGS 3. That may not be realistic, but realism should never get in the way of fun. If they do this, I will be looking forward to it much more.
