Hey, after looking at the release dates for various games that I wanted to buy, I realized that I'm going to be gaming for a VERY long time starting this fall. Most of the games are shooters, but they're all gonna be great! Stranglehold, Halo 3, Unreal Tournament III, Half Life 2:Orange Box, GTA IV, Mass Effect, I can go on and on. Also, ever since I've had my 360, I always feel like there's just too many good games!

You obviously didn't get one on launch. Or within the year after launch...

RE5 isn't coming out 'soon'. RE5 is at least 12 months away. It will most likely be a late Spring or early Summer 2008 game.

That said, I was talking with Webb a couple days ago about the glut of games coming from September to Jan/Feb 2008. There are literally about 12-15 'must-buy' games coming out in that period and another 10 or so that look really good too.

Hour of Victory and Fantastic 4 aren't even worth mentioning. They make your eyes bleed.

Yeah,I need to start saving. Blue Dragon, Mass Effect, Halo 3, GTA4, Half-life....

I still haven't all gotten games that I want currently out! R6V might have to wait a bit.

I beg to differ. I enjoy hour of victory and F4 is apparently an easy 1000

Do you also enjoy hitting yourself in the nuts with a spiked bat? I kid, I kid. But seriously you may be the only person who enjoys that game. And you are definitely a masochist...

Well, it looks like my wallet is going to be very sad. I'm not buying anymore games until September because for the time being I'm trying to complete all of my games that I have. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish about 1/2 - 3/4 of them.

Yeah, definitely a lot of quality entertainment coming to the 360 this year.

I can hear my wallet screaming in agony already. :(

I spent $50 at Gamestop earlier just on preorders.

Hour of Victory isn't really a bad game, it's just terribly mediocre. It's something I could see myself buying once it hits the bargain bin.

GTA IV and Blue Dragon will be more than enough to keep you gaming until Spring '08, everything else will just make you poor.

I'm cancelling a few preorders because so many games are coming out over the last two quarters that will take up too much time when I should be learning how to clone people. So I apologise now if you don't all get your Xmas pressies this year.

Why would you buy a "terribly mediocre" game, let alone when there are plenty of good FPS out there?

Heh, couldn't have said it better myself. But I still love Condemned, Quake 4, and shit like that.

Halo 3, Fable 2, The Darkness, Overlord, AC...Urgh. All must haves for me.

Haha Fantastic Four was terrible but the other games were really good.

Launch sucked in so many ways. After I burned through the release games I wanted to play I think my 360 went for about 3 months where I didn't start it up and was playing WoW (ahhh the good old raiding days...) All of a sudden I feel an urge of panic set in whenever I think of all the good games coming. What will I do!?!?!?! MY 360 NEEDS TO RETURN FROM THE REPAIR SHOP NOW! AHHHH!

Starting in August and ending in January there are at least 2-3 games every months that are "must have" games. My wallet is going to be crying this holiday season.

So many games I would want, but one or two will keep me happy until they get cheaper or whatever. ATM, I'm only really gonna buy GTAIV and maybe halo 3, but if GHIII comes out before i can be arsed to get halo then halo can wait.

Because there are times, like now, where there's not much good out. July is a fucking wasteland. That, and I have a bit of a collector's mentality.

Another thing I forgot about:pre-orders. If you pre-order games, you get bonuses. So I'm going to be pre-ordering a lot in the coming months. :P

Yeah..My wallet is going to cry, basically. I want Halo 3 Legendary Edition, Mass Effect: CE, Blue Dragon, PGR4, Call Of Duty 4 and I also need to re-buy my older games - like Dead or Alive 4, Call Of Duty 2, etc..and there's also games I want to get thats already out...

...And people wonder why I love my 360.

Why would you re-buy Dead or Alive 4 and Call of Duty 2? They were fun, yea, but I doubt you'll have the time to play those in the next year even if you have the funds.
