I knew I was forgetting something :D

Anyway, what games are you most looking forward too? Hell, here's my top 5.

5. Metal Gear Solid 4 - I've never been a really big Metal Gear fan, but this one certainly looks very good. I'll probably buy a PS3 around the time it comes out, since I'll also be getting an HDTV around that time.

4. Dragon Quest IV/V/VI remakes on DS
What? I never played them. Definitely want.

3. Mario Kart Wii
It's Mario Kart. With online. And motorcycles. Yeah, it's been done before, but that doesn't make it less awesome.

2. Gears of War 2
For all intents and purposes, it's coming.

1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Oh come on, did you expect anything else from me?

- Dragon Quest Swords
- Dragon Quest V and VI [Japanese releases]
- Dragon Quest IX

I might as well throw Final Fantasy IV DS on there since I didn't manage to pick it up in Japan, and by the time I go back in spring it might be more worth it to buy it in English, but who knows.

I just woke up and can't think of anything else at the moment. :(


Dragon Quest IV/V/VI remakes on DS

Yesssss. I picked up DQIV on release date and it's soooo goooood. I can't wait for it to come out here because I'll just buy it again in English!

Looking forward to:

1) Metal Gear
2) New Kingdom Hearts on PSP
3) Final Fantasy Versus XIII (if it ever gets done...)
4) Killzone 2
5) Resistance 2

Few others, but nothing big yet besides those...

There's nothing really that anticipated for me, really, as it's one of those the-announcements-are-going-to-be-bigger-than-the-games years. I'm telling you, a new Wii Zelda WILL be announced, just watch. Anyways:

Metal Gear Solid 4- Great game, or greatest game? We'll see.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl- Oh come on.

Mario Kart: Tok-Wii-O Drift- Copyright on title. If you use it, Nintendo, you owe me. Anyways, as long as the motorcycles don't screw up the gameplay it should be fun. It's a consistently (ignoring MKA) fun game.

Tekken 6- My personal favorite fighting franchise, outside of Street Fighter.

Little Big Planet- Despite not liking Sony and the scorn they have for gamers, this definately has a lot of potential and might give me a reason to buy a PS3, outside of T6 and MGS4.

DEVIL MAY CRY 3!! (360) That's the main one I'm looking forward to.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

No More Heroes (Wii)

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (DS)

lol All the games I'm looking forward to come out next month. I'm not really looking forward to much. 2007 was a great gaming year, I just hope 2008 could top that. As TybaltFlux said, I bet there's going to be more huge announcements than huge games.

Assuming FF XIII is coming in 2009,

1) White Knight Chronicles (PS3) - Awesome character design and animations. Battles look good too. Surprised someone hasn't mentioned this.

2) Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3) - Been hyped since I saw first trailer

3) Lost Odyssey (X360) - Coming in about a month from now. Always been a fan of Sakaguchi.

4) Ninja Gaiden II (X360) - First NG I played was Sigma and was extremely satisfied.

5) Devil May Cry 4 (PS3) - Only a few weeks away.


If I had a Wii, then SSB and Mario Kart would be on the list, but I'm not sure I'm excited for anything on the Wii besides those two titles and Galaxy.

Oh yeah, FF4 on DS. I've been playing the Japanese version and its much harder than any of the SNES versions.

Keeping it with top five:

No More Heroes.
KH games for PSP and DS.

-Starcraft II (If Blizzard gets it done this year)
-No More Heroes (It's a few days away from release)
-Metal Gear Solid 4 (Going to shoot myself for shelling out the cash just to play this)
-Guilty Gear 2 (A true sequel and a completely different game. It's a big hit or miss at this point)
-Super Smash Bros Brawl (Heres to hoping the rumored guide leak is true and Ness is in it)

I would say MGS4 but I've been getting bad feelings about it ever since the trailer with "call me...Big Mama." It's starting to look like it's putting more ephasis on action and plot twists than actual story line but I guess I'll find out when it actually comes out, hopefully I'm wrong.
But other than that...mabey Starcraft II?(I still think Blizzard is lieing about this game and its going to be pushed back to 2012)

Well, of course there's going to be emphasis on plot twists, this is Kojima we're talking about here.

I personally enjoy the fact that he's bringing back a lot of the characters as a last hurrah for him finishing his work on MGS. Though I will say that it needs less cheeseball lines like the Big Mama one.

Street Fighter IV
King of Fighters XII

Yes, they will only be out in Japan this year, might even get pushed back until next, but I'll still get to play them. Also, there will be lots of work done on them this year at the least.

SFIV, HOW COULD I FORGET IT. I'm sure some places will beta test it or import an arcade cabinet, at the least, like TGA or Brunswick Zone or some place in California. We might not get a console copy, but arcade is better than nothing.

Devil May Cry 4 on PS3
Soul Calibur IV. I'm not sure if I'm going PS3 or 360 on this one. I'd rather play with the PS3 pad, but I'd rather play Yoda than Vader.
the PS3 version of Eternal Sonata/Trusty Bell
Final Fantasy IV DS
Ninja Gaiden II
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Guilty Gear 2, even if it ends up mediocre
King of Fighters XII
and I'll hold judgement on Street Fighter IV until I play it

I'd say Final Fantasy XIII but that'll most likely be released in 2009.
