The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – November 20th (Nin)

Unless another staff member claims the reviews, odds are I’ll be reviewing each and every one of these games.  You’ll notice I didn’t put any 3DS titles on here because if I’m the only one reviewing all these games then I won’t have time for much else.  Needless to say, the madness is about to begin!

Which big releases are you guys going to purchase?

  1. I definitely would like to help with a couple titles. After all I’m not going to go the rest of my life without playing another console game ;) We’ll see what I have time for in the coming months :)

    Sorry you have such a load man. That’s killer.

  2. Well, you know me, Jarrod. Goes without saying that Zelda’s at the top of my list, so I will be logging and/or reviewing that one. Already have the special edition pre-ordered. Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer is also an exciting venture for me. You can handle the single-player while I write about online like we did with Black Ops last year.

    Uncharted, Batman, Kirby, and Skyrim are very interesting games, too. I’m just not sure if I’ll have time to play them all as the holiday season is already crowded for me.

  3. These months all the way to christmas are brutal for top games :S I shall be poor if I end up getting all the ones that I’m interested in.
    God Of War : Origins, Ico & Shadow Of the Colossus, X-men Destiny (Has peeked my interested),Batman Arkham City, Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3,Skyrim, My Xbox 360 Gears Of War 3 Edition :D, Resistance 3, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy,

  4. I’m definitely interested in ICO & Shadow of the Colossus HD, Batman Arkham City, Skyrim, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, Kirby (Wii and DS), and Metal Gear Solid HD. I’ll probably also get Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Professor Layton and the Last Specter.

  5. If anyone can help with these reviews, by all means go for it :) The biggest games for me this holiday are honestly just about all the ones I listed above. It’s going to be one insane holiday season this year O_o

  6. There are just too many good looking games coming, just in this year alone. Here are several I’m interested in:

    Star Fox 64 3D
    Cave Story 3D
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Mario Kart 7
    Operation Raccoon City
    Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
    Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (again, I’m pumped for Phoenix Wright!!)
    Dark Souls (already got it pre-ordered)

    The Cursed Crusade

    Are you a Playstation Plus user it would appear they will be able to get Resident Evil 1-3 for free on Sept. 20th & the HD remake of Res 4/Code Veronica will be 50% off exclusively for Plus users :)

  8. These are my day 1 purchases for the rest of the year:

    Gears 3
    Mordern Warfare 3
    Skyrim
    Batman Arkham City
    Dance Central 2

    Star Fox 64 (3DS)
    Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)
    Aliens Infestation (NDS)
    Mario Kart 7 (3DS)
    Nano Assault (3DS)

    These are the titles that I want but that I’ll probably have to wait (or skip)

    Battlefield 3
    Halo Anniversary
    Spiderman Edge of Time
    Your Shape 2012
    Resistance 3
    Ratchet + Clank 4
    Sninobi (3DS)
    Dark Souls

    I don’t know how I’ll find the money or the time to buy and play all of these.

  9. Playing Resistance 3 right now, and should have it finished by next Wednesday if all goes according to plan. That means I’ll be ready for the next big game. I’m going to see how everything goes before I confirm which games I’ll cover. The above list are all the games I should be able to handle, but everything will depend on the course I’m taking and how much I need to study, etc. Thus far it’s looking good though.
