    So many good games coming out this spring/summer.
    Red Dead Redemption!

  2. Leeumm says:

    Possibly Red Dead Redemption for me, but with the Reach Beta two days away, I don’t think I’ll be buying anything in May.

    • augustelc says:

      beta doesnt last forever…

      • soulofaqua says:

        Recovering from 2 weeks of non stop Halo: Reach Beta might though.

        • augustelc says:

          i dunno red dead redemption looks pretty good

  3. Monkey_lord says:

    Lost Planet 2, Prince of Persia, and probably Alan Wake.

  4. t0rm3n7 says:

    I played the demo for split-second, and I was happy enough with it.
    Definitely rent-worthy, but is it good enough to buy? I’m not sure…
    Prince of Persia looks fun.

  5. Mizzy says:

    Finally! Lost Planet 2 has been in the works FOREVER!

  6. StuntDouble2483 says:

    The line up this month is INSANE! I’ve had my eye on Alan Wake for sometime, and PoP is always cool (yes, I even liked the last one, sue me), but for sheer fun and monetary value, I’ve got to go with Red Dead. Really looking forward to the pure chaos of Free Mode in a wild west setting. I also can’t help but be interested in LP2, even though the first game’s protaganist was notorious for being the least agile videogame character ever. Must have spent half the first game yelling “GET UP ALREADY…F@!#!”

    • Mizzy says:

      He was pretty agile for knee-high snow.

  7. Tortacular says:

    Skate 3, Red Dead Redemption and Prince of Persia… yikes. I’m already behind on games.

  8. RobC says:

    OMG UFC2010!!!!

  9. Lost Planet 2 For sure.
    BTW, I replied to your FM on Flickr angel.

    • bs angel says:

      Awesome, thanks!

  10. porge says:

    They all look prettty awesome, but the only one I’m getting for sure is LP2. The first one was just so awesome, I don’t think I can resist. That is, if I can get myself away from the Reach beta for long enough… I guess I’ll have time after it ends
