Assassins Creed
Alan Wake
Halo 3
Bio Shock
Half-Life : the orange box
Fable 2
Mass effect
GTA IV


There are lots of great 360 games coming out soon(ish). (I've only listed the ones I'm interested in.) Which one are you most looking forward to and why?

None.

Alan Wake looks most promising IMO, but I'm still unsure what the gameplay is like or what the story is. I'd anticipate Halo 3 if Halo 2 was up to scratch.

Won't stop me buying them though. The above 2 are certain buys so long as I don't hear they're absolutely terrible.

I'm really not looking forward to HL2. How on earth is that going to be playable? It's one of the most precise and frantic shooters going. I just can't see it being an ounce as fun as the PC version.

Halo 3-Its Halo...thats enough for me

Mass Effect- Looks good from what I've seen, kind of like KOTOR(they made the 1st I think) so I'd buy it


KOTOR 3-It better come out, and I'm guess its an Xbox 360 game.

Star Wars:The Force Unleashed-Looks really good..its for PS3 also, but I'm more likely have an Xbox 360 first, so I'll buy it for thats

Star Wars BattleFront 3- This is just a guess again but I really really like the first 2.

Their isn't much else for the Xbox 360 which I need....maybe I'm forgeting some of them..still 360 is worth it for Halo 3 alone IMO

System Shock 2 was the scariest game I have ever played, and so my hopes are extremely high for BioShock.

I love Horror/adventure games..Bioshock is on top of my list.

If Mass Effect is anything near as good as Jade Empire, it may be what convinces me to splash out on a 360 and HDTV. :o

Even though I voted Halo 3, it's nearly a stand off with Assassin's Creed.

I'm actually surprised more people haven't mentioned AC. Personally, I think it looks incredible :D

If the rumours are true, Final Fantasy XIII. I don't own a 360 but I'm prepared to get one for XIII :D

And before you say it, no I don't want a PS3 :rolleyes:

Brothers in Arms Hells Highway
Mass Effect

Halo3

Assasisn Creed (Honorable Mention - want to see Gameplay, coop, other features before I decide)

of note I am curious about eternal sonata but if turns out to be another typical bullsh$t JRPG it can rot for all I care

Well forget what I said about Alan Wake and forgive me having doubts about Halo 3 after the disastrous story in Halo 2. ;) And if you actually did look around this place you would have spotted my very positive comments about GTA4, so please. Don't jump in like that.

Hey here's an idea before I report you, instead of picking out comments from other users why not contribute to the thread. It's getting tiring seeing you hound out my comments without actually talking about the topic in hand.

Halo 3 followed closely by GTA IV. I'll be sure to check out Assassins Creed and Bioshock though.

Halo 3 followed by GTA IV....come on, even at best "good gaming stories" are still gaming stories. They're a bit childish, cheesy, and predictable...there are very, very few exceptions. They're great entertainment, but not Kaufman.

Halo 2 took the gameplay for 1 up a notch...online/multi player was great which is what most normal folks play these games for. Three should take all that and all they've learned with Live and take it up even more. That's a good thing. Plus Bungie themselves have talked a little about their disappointment in 2 so I'm sure it's going to be a different direction.

Exactly. I heard the maps and battles will be more like Halo 1 than 2. I'm still not jumping blindly into it. I got Halo 2 on launch day without reading about the single player. But for Bungie to acknowledge they went wrong is music to my ears. I just hope we don't see Halo 3 Episode 1 anytime soon :D

Is GTA4 a 360/PS3 exclusive? No PC version?

I'd doubt that, I'd imagine the majority of 360 owners play single-player exclusively.

I don't have exact figures, but even the total number of Xbox Live subscribers looks low to me, and many of those may never have played a multiplayer game.

I'm just going off my experience here. Anytime I'm at someone's place that had an Xbox back in the day we'd always either do coop or vs or get online. Online actually last of the options. Now it's replaced with Gears or Vegas for the most part with folks I know.

I can't name one person that's saying, "man I can't wait for Halo 3 and the conclusion to that awesome story"...I have heard "new graphics look sick", "online should rock", "what new vehicles", etc...

For those playing fps video games more for the story might I suggest classic books :D much better stories there.

Right, so Half Life wasn't celebrated for it's story. Or Unreal for providing a seamless story. Deus Ex? Halo 2's cliffhanger is the biggest criticism I've heard for the game (along with ugly texture loading).

I don't think you know there are 2 subcategories for FPS - brainless ones such as Doom, Duke, Quake and ones that have a story and world that unfolds throughout the game.

halo 3.

pcypert
Jun 6, 2007, 09:22 AM
Really? Unreal? That was a pretty standard fps storyline. It was mildly interesting for sure, but you can't say that it was quality. Just because games stand out from the pack doesn't mean the leap is made to their being quality stories. Maybe quality game stories. Half Life had a story which allowed some really strong gameplay, but it was the gameplay that drew me in...I could care less about the aliens or govt workers or anything like that.

If they were really good stories they'd be made into movies instead.

The Darkness!!!!

Yeah this does look very promising. But I'm not going to get my hopes up - so they can be dashed. Prey looked promising too, but after the first hour - it pretty much fell into bland generic shooter teritory. I hope the Darkness doesn't suffer the same fate, however it is by Starbreeze and their titles have been pretty good for the most part.

My most anticipated is BioShock.

Halo 3's multiplayer beta was a complete disappointment - it felt like Halo 2, just with a few new weapons and vehicles, and some minor graphical improvements. Bungie said that over the next few months that Halo 3 will undergo "graphical improvements", but in 3 months there is not much more they can do. I'm hoping that Halo 3's single player far exceeds my expectations, because right now, my interest in the game is low.

Last figure I heard was 6 million live subscribers. And I believe just over 10 million people own a 360.

I've boycotted Bungie as they obviously don't care about their gamers one bit. They refused to take any real action when modding was being done on online matches, and thus will never get another dime from me.

I am looking forward to BioShock and Assassin's Creed, however. Just as well, I'd really like to see how Army of Two and Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat turn out. Both look refreshing (one from a play-style, the other from a complete makeover of the series).

Personally, I think you are completely wrong there. They've been pretty active with banning cheaters, but when you have a game that is played as much as Halo, do you really think solutions are going to happen overnight?

BS and AC do look awesome though, hoping they live up to expectation.

You and I have gone a few rounds on his subject before. And whether you think I'm right or wrong, I have lots of reason why I am right. 1. Microsoft issued a patch the day before Halo 2 was debuted, and this kicked anyone off of XBL who had a modded box that had been set up on XBL before it was modded (because they matched the HDD and motherboard numbers in a database.)

2. Since that time, Bungie has not released a patch to fix bridging or softmods, which is a very, very easy patch to release, especially if you're a multi-million dollar company, back by a multi-billion dollar company.

3. H2 was released three years ago. In three years, a patch should have been available.

So, basically, you think I'm wrong because you're telling me that in 3 years time, they couldn't muster the resources to release a patch for this? I think that's the biggest farce I've heard in the gaming industry since "Duke Nukem Forever." The truth is, Bungie has our money, they could care less what happens from that point forward.

I'll just have to agree with Jimmi on this one, shooters need to be atmospheric, immersing and overall have a good game world and story, shooters are one of the few genres where graphics and art style matters a LOT.

I'm not sure why Halo is THAT popular not that is bad but people could be idolatrizing and playing many other better FPS gameplay wise out there.

Anyways, I don't even understand how console fps got so popular, PCs are definitely the best platform for shooters for 2 reasons, 1) PCs are more powerful and graphics DO matter for shooters and 2) PCs have superior control for FPS and frantic, precise, fast as hell shooters, like Jimmi said, HL2 Xbox probably won't be as good as PC HL2.

But I digress.

I don't agree. I have perfect control on shooters on consoles. And let's not forget that Half Life is made for PC's and not consoles. Halo, Lost Planet, etc. are all made for the console first. I've never, NEVER like the control of a keyboard for games. too many buttons, too much hassle. Give me a controller and I can spank people. This is personal preference, but again, which platform is was amde for really counts when it comes to control mechanisms.

After IGN gave it a 9, I now can't wait for DiRT.

Halo 3 is the top of my list. I have been looking for a reason to get on Live and get back into practice. GTA IV is followed very closely. I like the atmosphere that it's heading towards. Mass Effect is then next on the list. Can't turn down Bioware. I've been following them since Baulders Gate.

Also you can't forget Call of Duty 4 and the New Splinter Cell game. I have to say, from what I have seen, they both look amazing.

I'd have to say Bioshock is my most anticipated game for the 360 right now. It looks incredible and looks to be a huge change from the run of the mill FPS. All the people talking in this thread about having an immersive world and a great storyline in an FPS game should really check it out.

I'm sure that PC's might be better for FPS, but I think many people (including myself) are pretty good with a controller on a console. We might not be as good as someone on a PC, but I am perfectly happy with the sensitivity and accuracy I am able to obtain with a controller. I never really got into FPS's until I got an XBox, mostly because I didn't want to $1000 for a gaming rig. I would rather spend $300-$400 on a console and put the extra money into games. Also, while consoles might not be as powerful as PC's, developers can optimize their game for the console because all the specs are the same and can squeeze every bit of potential out of the system instead up having to create minimium requirements. But that is just me and I know lots of people who hate playing shooters on a console for your reasons.

Oh yes, have you played the Demo? Fantastic.

As for Halo 3, I'm a little backwards. I don't enjoy the Online Multi-Player at all (Which I guess is why I aint played the Beta more than once) but I love the Single Player and the Split screen multi with friends.

I tell you what I'm anti-anticipating; Tenchu Z.

For a system that can push out GoW, Tenchu sure does look foul. Gameplay was all rotten too. Felt like playing Nightmare Creatures all over again.

Had a play on Dirt too. It seems okay but the uber naff menu voiceover and the way the camera zooms into the car at the start cheapened the whole experience. Not keen.

use the in car view (similar to PGR3) on the hill climb race. After a few mistakes and the car starts tumbling down the cliffs and the view stays in the car, your jaw will drop. or at least mine did. pretty cool I'd say.
