I've played pretty much everything I wanted already this year. With exception to GTA4 that is, but I'm going to wait till well after the new year for that as I don't feel like paying full price for a 8 month old game with 2 year old graphics. Squeetard raised an interesting title though, I might just have to check out Tomb Raider Underworld.

Really it's looking pretty bleak for new releases till the year end. As usual the pc game industry has shot it's load at the start of the 4th quarter just in time to get those fat X-Mas bonuses and earning reports out and the consumer is left with little to gift out for the gamer. Maybe I just play the games to fast but I like to get them right away, play the hell out of them and then sell them off to friends while they're still considered a hot titles.

I'll probably just play WoW on "Alternate" servers and have fun with my peeps hacking the living heck outta them. "excuse me but I think thats my packet thank you" lol

You're getting both RB2 and GHWT. Wow you're hard core! Can you use the gear from one on the other, or do you have to buy both?

Wouldn't be getting both if the gear wasn't compatible ;)

Will get the instruments from RB2 and just the disc for GHWT

Eve isn't worth it personally. The learning curve is so huge that most people get bored with it before they can experience anything worthwhile.

Rez HD? Heh Rez is pretty cool but its hard. I have the original on my Dreamcast.

I'm waiting for Battlefield Heroes to come out.

You mean like this?


I've been an EVE Player since 2003, I'm not to worried about "getting into" the game since, well I'm already WAY into it .

As for Rez HD, I LOVE it, just BARELY managed to get one of the butterfly "good" endings, even then I had to study for days where the hell every spawn point was and etc so I could get above 95% shot down rate.

I just listed all the games I've got planned to play during the winter season when my social life goes down the toilet.

Let's see, I already have pretty much everything I think I will be playing for the next while.

Fallout 3 (Already at level 20, but not finished main quest)
Crysis Warhead
Far Cry 2
Assassin's Creed (Lost all progress during new OS install, thought the save games were backed up) @FreqE1 - Sure suck when this happens don't it?
Need for Speed: Undercover

And maybe I'll pick up GTA IV.
