die, warcraft, die

 

heh, KZ2 id just like to see you purchase, after all your poo-pooing my bootleggery i still get laughs out of bish technically owning more ps3 games than you, sir.

Fear 2 i should add, i just really didnt think much of part 1, no idea why it got the hype it did. and Ys, i swear, thats all bish but then there's gotta be another fan of the series on here somewhere.

just finished Res2's single player, wanted to see what others thought of the ending.

Fear...i think it was sold to me wrong, i was expecting more of a horror game, and got another shooter with mild horror elements to it. mebbe 2 will improve that, its just not on my radar.

Been waiting for Diablo 3 for fucking YEARS now, so looks like it might finally be arriving. Also Guild Wars 2 may be out this year, but Arena Net has done a real piss poor job keeping me interested in the first GW as of late, so I dunno just how enthusiastic I'll be about this one.

so, with infamous out now and Ghostbusters onna way, i think i was wrong about this year. here's what my current release schedule looks like, at least according to gamestop (for what that's worth):

 

Red Dead Redemption (9/1)

Ultimate Alliance 2 (9/8)

Uncharted 2 (10/1)

Brutal Legend (10/13)

Heavy Rain (11/9?)

Bioshock 2 (11/3)

Katamari Forever (Q4?)

 

so, given my queue, still a busy year. which ones are now/still on your must have list?

yeah, see, im counting on bish to get Batman, and anyone to get Fight Night 4 till i finds it cheap, assuming it goes as well as the last one.

im all about good boxing games, just wish this gen'd see another Def Jam game to cover the wrestling end.

why do you think batman would ever leave this house? George will masturbate nightly to that game :P

 

he'll get sore eventually

 

Is there really any point in releasing more of these games? I mean are they really inventing new and exciting ways to roll shit into a ball?

 

 

its a ps3 remake of damacy with online functions and the option to cel-shade, few new levels too. im already sold.

The new one, Legends of Wrestling has drawn favourable comparison to the old Smackdown titles of PS1 fame(I loved those games), which makes me wanna try it out cause I miss chaotic 4-man matches.
