HEXUS.gaming have a list of 30+ upcoming videogames that are worthy of putting on your Christmas wish list for 2008, including Fable 2, Little Big Planet and Quantam Solace.
Only one wish God of War 3 release date, Gameplay videos will be good, butI don't need to see the videos to buy this game. Rest is just the icing on the cake.
I don't mind waiting 'til 2009 to see Kratos in full 1080p awesomeness,LBP+Resistance will keep me very busy for the rest of the year!
I don't need to see a single footage of gameplay of God of War 3... heck, all Sony had to is announce the game and people would be just as excited. God of War 3, Killzone 2, and Heavy Rain are my top 3 games for 2009, can't wait for those massive AAA Exclusives to drop
these aren't all games to put on "your christmas list" it's just a list of games that are coming out between now and december
They didnt even have motorstorm in their list. Fail
No MotorStorm or Gears of War 2--Wow that is impressive to miss that one. Also Missing from the list that is on my list: Call of Duty: World at War (I know it isn't Infinity Ward, but Flamethrowers and a co-op mode you got me) Far Cry 2: Had me with pulling bullets out with plyers Banjo Kaazooie- Build it and it may fly! Socom- Another big miss! 32 multi player come on, and custom clans. Buzz!- Come on a quiz game with an endless supply of Quizes that can be download from other users. On the fence games: Legendary Rise of the Argonots Valkyria Chronicles- Looks good in Japan, but gotta see the English version. Lord of the Ring: Conquest- Same guys that did BattleFront
Lack of MS2 and GeOW2 is definigly questionable. Also, forget about Legendary, its from makers of Turning Point and already looks as bad. Graphics are a bit better but the rest...
my list is... LittleBigPlanet Gears of War 2 yup onlu 2 games... you probably thinking "what about SOCOM, Resistance 2, Motorstorm 2, etc." i will be getting those on release day... those two games on my christmas list are games that i can wait for
Little Big Planet is on top of the list!
The upcoming games that I plan on buying for the rest of this year are: Fallout 3, Resistance 2, Far Cry 2, LBP, Motorstorm 2, and Dead Space. I would get SOCOM but it's Online only and I'm not much of an Online guy... I'm not quite sure if I'll get Prince of Persia or Mercenaries 2 yet, but I might... but those are the only games that I have my sights on this Fall and Holiday season.
Oh I forgot about PoP that wasn't on this list either! Def. First day buy for me. I got the same ones on my list that you've got, except MotorStorm, just not big into racing or Fighting games, though I can appreciate a good one.
Left 4 Dead? I mean it's a Valve game... how could you exclude that?? And Far Cry 2? And Banjo and Kazooie? Mediocre list.
I have most of these preoredered already... I have 15 games fully paid off but I am gonna wait on reviews for games like Mercs 2 and Tomb raider and MK vs DC before I get them. I can wait a bit on those. Good list overall though except Animal Crossing...
Now that is hardcore Jinx!
Go big or go Home right? I am a gamer and own every decent game on my platform. Those I don't own I either bought and traded back or rented i.e. Dark sector, Viking, Conan, Time splitters. Hit me up if your on PSN and I'll show you a decent stack of games =P I really invested a lot in my hobby, 56 inch HD TV full surround and everything else. I really don't make much money either in my job I am just dedicated =D Dead Space Lego Batman LBP Spore Motorstorm 2 Resistance 2 Fallout 3 Far Cry 2 Buzz Bionic Commando Star Wars TFU SF4 KZ2 Socom God of War 3 Some aren't til after Xmas but those are what I have currently... Edit: Think of me as a PS3 fan if you like(To general public not directed at you boody) but I have a decent PC as well and most of the games I used to own on 360 I now own on PC... I have my reasons... Don't hate cause I don't =D and game on everyone.
I'm not going to deny the likely quality of most of these games (although I'd say Quantum of Solace, Tomb Raider, and Sonic Unleashed could easily go either way), but this list, as an article, seems like something of a cop out. All of these titles have been heavily hyped and will sell numerous copies, regardless of whether or not they get feature article treatment. This list could easily have been compiled to anyone even vaguely conscious of video game release schedules. I'd rather see a list of high quality holiday games that are likely to go ignored or which haven't received much hype yet. That would be doing a service to both the gamers who read the article and the unrecognized developers whose quality games are mentioned. As is, this article is pretty disposable.
mercs 2 and jedi unleashed ,of course final fantasy been reservered. tomb raider and james bond looks good if we lucky maybe last remeants be out same time as xbox360
Mirrors Edge Prince of Persia Street Fighter 4 I'll probably already have LittleBigPlanet and Fallout 3 is a maybe from me.
This is what happened last year. Then I lose interest in the ones I haven't bought and forget about them. Little Big Planet, Spore, SW FU :), Far Cry 2, and Resistance 2 are the ones I'm getting. I cant buy any not in that list after Christmas because I'll be buying all the games released after Christmas. Its kind of nice though only buying A games.
All I want is Banjo Kazooie
