Take off Eragon, GTA4(comes out next October), and Demonik(never coming out). The rest are all good games and it pretty much depends on your personal tastes.

I would try to pre-order all, since half you probably can't and when you change your mind about a game, you can put it towrds another game, unless you dont have enough to pre-order a lot now...

GTA IV
F.E.A.R
Call of Duty 3
Gears of War
Brother's In Arms
Are ALL must haves.....IMO

demonik could come out, in one of my old mag's (its from this year but i consider it old lol) said that it was looking for a publisher so im hoping it comes out, it looks like it would be a good game

and with GTA IV i was thinking about puttin $5 down on it now since i have like a year and a couple months to pay it off

From what I saw in Grandma's Boy it looks good and I would love for it to come out.

Gears of War, Enchanted Arms, N3, COD3, and Timeshift are the only games which are pretty much certain to come out in 2006. Sonic might come out in 2006 as well, but the rest are listed on gamespot as being TBA or 2007 titles.

Gears of War and COD3 are the only ones I'd buy on that list, with the possibility of Enchanted Arms (haven't played a JRPG since...I don't even remember). I myself have pre-ordered and paid off both Saints Row and Gears of War. I'm gonna pick up Dead Rising on tuesday. I wouldn't pre-order any others until they get release dates (Gears of War is an exception).

yeah im probably gonna reserve both saints row and enchanted arms when i pick up dead rising becuase i am a big RPG fan, and i pretty much love all RPG's lol and saints row is awesome from what i played in the demo. a couple of the others i might put like $5 down on lol and gears of war is a must own for an FPS fan (like me :D )

i myself probably wouldnt get DOA xtreme 2. I have the original and i only played it for a couple days, beat it and everything. its only kinda fun, i dont know what they would add in this version except for good graphics...but that sure didnt help rumble roses. Anyways i would take a look into Frame City Killer instead!

Frame City Killer was cancelled a while ago otherwise it would either already be out and id own it (it was suppose to come out in Feb.) or it would be on the list ;)

N3 - Wasn't that great! The game play was good with the constant hacking/slashing and blood but the story was put together horribly and no matter how much i tried I had a hard time putting it all together.

Take N3 off the list! Go rent it if you want to try it
