Heres Mine.

Mass Effect
Blacksite Area 51
Call of Duty 4
Assassins Creed
Kane & Lynch
Ace Combat 6

I know there are others that I'm missing.. Add in Uncharted and I am going to be one busy gamer.

Mass Effect is a definite must-buy, and I'm about 90% sure I'm getting Assassin's Creed. I was all on-board for Rock Band, but now that they announced the World Tour isn't online, I'm thinking I probably won't buy it. There are lots of games I'm looking forward to, but just don't think they're worth a purchase. Here's that list:

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja
Guitar Hero III
Call of Duty 4
America's Army: True Soldiers
Kane and Lynch

I'll probably rent these all through gamefly, but they aren't quite worth my money. Don't even get me started on all the 2008 games - my wallet is already crying.

joydestroy4016d ago

here's mine...

Call Of Duty 4 (X360)
Assassin's Creed (X360)
America's Army: True Soldiers (X360)
Mass Effect (X360)
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (X360)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3)
Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back (X360)
Haze (PS3)

talk about a great XMAS and bday this year...

kss4016d ago

sorry dude the only good games on your list are mass effect, cod4 and assassins creed the rest is sh*t

razer4016d ago

Not everyone thinks a game is sh!t just because you do.. Why don't you try putting up your own list instead of wanking on someone else's.

Sez 4016d ago

he only has two games for his list of games this year. R&C and uncharted. because the rest are s**t.


I have a short list:


PGR4 (don't have it yet)




Timeshift, Jericho, & Blacksite are definate rentals... just can't afford them all... I wish Conan was better, he would be a great lead in a AAA quality title.

Hey guys, I just found out that Burger King has coupons for a $10.00 gift card at Circuit City for any game over $39.00, I grabbed a stack of them.
That combined with my 10% off gamer card should save me $16.00 a game.
If the coupons are not on the counter ask the clerk if they have them.
It expires November 31st, good luck!

Covenant4016d ago

Off topic, but welcome. Thanks for the tip.

Mass Effect (duh)

Call of Duty 4

Simpsons Game (favorite show, and it looks like fun)

Assassin's Creed

Conan (yeah, reviews are mixed, but I loooove gory button-mashers. I'll wait for a sale/price drop)

Viva Pinata: Party Animals & Lego Star Wars: Complete Trilogy (Something my son and I can play together)

Bladestorm (ditto)

And of course, Fable 2, Halo Wars, Alan Wake, etc. next year.
