    BF:BC2, metro 2033 (later) and doesn’t awakening come out, as well? (The 16th)

  2. AOClaus says:

    Battlefield is on my list. Metro 2033 looks interesting as does Blur, though I want to see what Split/Second is going to be like first.

  3. BFalcon says:

    Perhaps Awakening isn’t on the list as it is technically only an expansion? Still, that is the only thing I am really looking forward to next month! :D

    • bs angel says:

      Yup, I usually don’t include expansions in the list, only full retail titles. :)

      • Poopie McGhee says:

        Well then, Hey, I thought Blur was delayed to may?

  4. IcyTreats says:

    BF:BC2 is a def. I’m also getting FFXIII. Seriously, that game looks freakin awesome.

  5. soulofaqua says:

    Add 3 days to these dates and you have a rough estimate of the Euro releases. Except for the RPGs FFXIII stays the same date and Resonance of Fate goes all the way to the 26th.

    • soulofaqua says:

      Also, no Major League Baseball.

  6. Monkey_lord says:

    Bad Company 2 and Supreme Commander 2 for me.

  7. liphttam1 says:

    Just Cause is on my list, freedom in games is important Halo 3 and Gta4 have a lot of freedom. Just cause two should have just as much.

  8. Leeumm says:

    BFBC2. <3 Pre-ordered that badboy months ago. Puuumped.

  9. HALO3syourdaddy says:

    High hopes for BC2 =)

  10. Mizzy says:

    What I find extremely amusing is that FFXIII’s snippet has no mention of the story whatsoever.

  11. altex says:

    metro 2033 looks ok, i can’t wait to get out of the vault and explore the capital wastela…oh.

    • porge says:

      Just what I was thinking!

  12. NartFOpc says:

    Another month with nothing I want. Oh well

  13. StuntDouble2483 says:

    Just Cause 2 looks good. After a month of playing the slightly oppressive ME2, I’m in the mood for something completely over the top. JC2 has plane surfing. Plane surfing!!

  14. VoltRabbit says:

    Shocked and Appalled: No Duke Nukem Forever?

  15. Sam says:

    Goodbye Modern Warfare 2, Hello Bad Company 2…

  16. soulofaqua says:

    I hope Metro 2033 will be like a fusion between S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Fallout. a.k.a. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. without the bugs. >.>

  17. The Real Dr Nog says:

    youd think that final fantasy would have stopped with the games by now

    • DuracellDurrell says:

      I’ve never really liked ff since the third one. From then on I realized it was really the same story over and over with physically impossible weapons and vehicles all used as a thin disguise for a tech demonstration. And yet each one tempts me. Probably won’t buy it…

  18. Nuclear Pi says:

    I cant wait for Just Cause 2, Don’t quite know why, but I loved the first one.
    BFBC 2 and Metro are definitely up there as well

  19. ComaToast says:

    Woot, BF BC2, Metro, and SupCom 2 are the wants I have.

  20. Mondo Titan says:

    This month is going to hurt the wallet. Bad Company 2, Dragon Age Awakening, Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising, FF13. ya. ouch.

  21. A Shaky Shotgun says:
