  2. AusQB says:

    CoD5 looked really interesting, but I’m not psyched about it. Mirror’s Edge is a game I’m really excited about, but it will need something special to outshine Far Cry 2.

  3. soulofaqua says:

    Westwood just turned in its grave..

  12. Rift says:

    Wow. I mean, I don’t want to buy but maybe 2 of those games, but there are actually quite a few worth having there… I don’t like to poke fun at other Companies, but the only thing that comes to mind is, “Sony, you just got served… 2 months straight.”

  13. PikminGod says:

    Mirror’s Edge ftw?
    Banjo ftl?

    i think its funny that they keep saying that QoS is going to be better than goldeneye…why are you trying to beat a game thats like 15 years old?

  14. AusQB says:


    Is that actually the box art for Red Alert 3?

    Westwood just turned in its grave..

    I know, it’s sad. What happened to the trademark face that’s been on practically every CnC title to date?

  15. ReverendTiki says:

    Im thinking of getting Left 4 Dead. It seems like a great game. I DL’d EndWars demo yesterday, and even though i hate tactics games and am very bad at them, i found it to be very enjoyable. The voice command was AWESOME!!

  16. Jillybean says:

    Mirrors Edge looks really interesting – if it’s what I think it is, ie all the running bits of Assassin’s Creed.

    Looking forwards to more Tomb Raider, akshully . . .

  17. TurtleKiss says:

    I definitely need Bond & Gears 2…and maybe COD and Tomb Raider (I’ll read some reviews first.) Currently waiting patiently for LittleBigPlanet. Too many good games at once!!!

  18. Mace Windex says:

    @Shaggydeath

    Nope, but you’re the only one who entered, so here you go:

    -internet-

    Please let Mirror’s Edge be as good as it looks. GOW2 is a no-brainer. Call of Duty: World at War sounds awesome. The rest are on a slow train to Rent-town.

  19. Faren22 says:

    You guys are all missing out on the one most amazing game for any console EVER: Walt Disney Pictures Bolt!
    …Dammit, I can’t keep a straight face while typing this.

  20. xFeaR says:

    hmmmm i think gears 2 looks the same as b4 and if im right it wont last to long. Cod WAW is alright.. it gots gore now and dogs and cars so i might get it.

    Left 4 dead from what ive seen is amazing

    Mirrors Edge amazing.

    Fable 2 i might buy it today but co-op is an issue n freezing.

    and the rest arent really well known for my taste and i bet they wont last as these games ive listed.

    Red Alert 3 will be good for the fans but not to people who hate strategy games that just spwn/spam the strongest unit in the game and do a full out rush. ==================== The Big Tanks from number 2 scarred me for life

    anyways only my opinions

  21. xFeaR says:

    sorry for my Grammar dont really care since its not real life so dont complain

  22. Zach says:

    Shaun White Snowboarding sounds sick, the controls are supposed to be a lot like those of Skate.
    Gears of War 2 no doubt-I only played the first one once, and got my 360 over the past summer, and I figured I could just wait to buy the new one instead of spending $100 for two games that are basically the same.
    Left4Dead-Hell yes. I saw that game in a magazine that I got for free when I got my 360, and I thought it looked so cool.

  23. WhyUWannaKNOW says:

    Gears of War 2 FTW!
    Left 4 Dead FTW!
    Mirror’s Edge FTW!!
    BOnd FTW!
    COD5 FTL!
    MADAGASCAR Is PLAIN RIDICULOUS!!
    BOLT IS JUST [censored]

  24. fresh says:
