    So the end of the year is looming already. This year has truly flown. With a lot of 2009s most anticipated games now pushed back to 2010 what are you looking forward to / anticipate buying in the run up to xmas ?




    For me...

    Wii

    A Boy and his Blob. I truly can not wait for this title, and thankfully it will be available next month US and November in Europe. I truly adored the NES version.

    NSMB a mario platform game on a Nintendo console. Has to be a must buy for any wii owner surely ? ;)


    PS3

    Uncharted 2. Looks spectacular, and whilst I would have preferred a lot more platforming in the original compared to the action/shooting, this is still very much a must buy.

    Ratchet & Clank Platforming is still king in my book and I'm really looking forward to continuing on the lombax struggle :)

    EyePet My camp side comes to the fore.... It just looks fun, and entertaining. Surely that's the very definition of entertainment


    Multiplatform...

    Brutal Legend. Can it ever follow Psychonauts brilliance ? I'm not sure but i'll probably give it a go

    Dirt 2 enjoyed the demo more than I thought and so I'll buy this.

    Games I should be buying...

    Motorstorm and Gran Tourismo on the PSP, maybe LBP PSP if its out.
    Pokemon Platinum on the DS.

    Maybe NSMB on the Wii. I don't like the visual style or what I've heard of the music, and they're kinda defining things in Mario games (for me at least). Maybe Metroid Prime Collection.

    And the absolute ruler of my upcoming free time...
    Left4Dead 2
    Even though 1 hasn't grown old for me yet.

    My list... complete with release dates :)

    Playstation 3
    Uncharted 2 Among Thieves: I loved the first one, and this adds a ton of new things. Online play looks great too, and the replay editor looks sweet! October 13
    Ratchet and Clack A Crack in Time: My favorite platformer series ever, and I can't wait. I've played through every R&C title multiple times. October 27
    Assassin's Creed 2: Assassin's Creed rocks. :) November 17

    Xbox 360
    Halo 3 ODST: I'm not the biggest Halo fan, but it's still a decent shooter to play with friends. Firefight looks great too. September 22
    Modern Warfare 2: It's Modern Warfare... 2. Do I need to say more? November 10
    Left 4 Dead 2: I love the new campaigns, and the melee stuff looks great. I'm still a little disappointed since this game is coming out way too early, but I just love Valve... November 17

    360/PS3 (not sure what I'll get it on)
    DJ Hero: I don't own any plastic peripheral music game, I'm too cheap to buy them... but for some reason this is just tempting me. October 27

    Playstation Portable (I was going to upgrade to a GO, but decided to save my money)
    MotorStorm Arctic Edge: I love the Motorstorm titles, and this is an impressive looking PSP game. September 30
    Gran Turismo: It took them long enough to finish this game, but it looks great. 800+ cars... wow. October 1
    Jak and Daxter The Lost Frontier: I love this series almost as much as I love the R&C series. November 3
    Assassin's Creed Bloodlines: I love Assassin's Creed, even if it gets a little repetitive. November 17
    LittleBigPlanet Portable: I'm a little disappointed by the lack on multiplayer, but the game still looks great. November 17

    Nintendo DS
    Mario & Luigi: I've got the first Mario & Luigi, and this one looks pretty good. I might get it. September 14
    Scribblenauts: Looks quite interesting. September 15

    I probably won't get all those games, but I want them. :)
    And MRU, isn't Splinter Cell a 2010 game?

    I think Mass Effect is 2010 too...

    So many games pushed back :\

    Just checked, it looks like Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell are scheduled for Q1 2010.... :(

    I already have Scribblenauts and ODST on pre-order. And I'll probably order Motorstorm and Gran Turismo next week.

    I love Amazon release date delivery. :)

    and once Steam puts it on sale, L4D2, I refuse to pay full price for Valve stuff anymore since everytime I buy them, they go on sale during some crazy Steam sale.

    They normally have preorder sales too where you get 5-10% off. And I'm still hoping for some kind of L4D1 crossover (launch 1 campaigns from within 2) or discount for L4D1 owners. But I'm dreaming :eek:.

    I'm going to jump on the bandwagon with my only console the 360

    The new Halo...without master chief I will probably be reading some reviews before I get it.
    Bioshock 2...this is the one I am really excited for and will get the day it comes out.
    Modern warefare 2...I am sure it will be good but I probably wont get it the day it comes out.
