Title: games i want to play this year that are coming out
Posted: October 21, 2008 (08:04 PM)
Persona 4 (I don't think it will top P3's story and characters, but it's just as interesting. the gameplay looks improved and...what i didn't like about 3 was not being able to control your other party members and half the time their AI sucked. i think 4 will be just as good. i just finished P3 not too long ago...i don't think i could stomach another 70-80+ hr. RPG right now but i'll get it just cus it's Persona.)
DJ Max Fever (i'll buy the localized version just to show my support for the series and hopefully future DJ Max games will come..i doubt it though. PM Studios better not fuck with the note charts and stay true to the korean versions. haven't played DJMax 2 so i'll have something to look forward to since most of the songs seem to be pulled from 2.)
DJ Max Clazziquai & Black Square - just saw new videos of Clazziquai and it's definitely a step up in presentation from the earlier DJ Max games. they got some songs from DJ Max Technika in the game too along with the same upgraded FMV seen in Technika! makes me wonder just how awesome Black Square is gonna be. i also like how the analog stick is being used more for the newly revamped modes to give off more of that Beatmania feel. a little cumbersome on PSP yet still a welcome addition.
Valkyria Chronicles - been interested in this game for some time. the visuals look sharp and colorful. reminds me of Dragon Quest 8 visuals. i'm reading positive feedback on the game's demo. might just be the surprise game of the year for me
FallOut 3 - not much to say than what's already been said. the atmosphere looks amazing. i wanted to like the Elder Scroll games but too much wandering around and not enough killing bored me from the limited play time i've encountered. the modern setting might just be more appealing than a medieval one..
Resistance 2 - it'll probably be more of the same, just bigger and better. can't complain because the first one was decent and i liked it. it's been awhile since i played another epic shooter..
Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero World Tour - the Guitar Hero series died in spirit long ago, but i like what they are doing to compete with Rock Band 2. i always thought rock band should have dedicated pads for hi-hat and cymbals like DrumMania. Guitar Hero series does just that and the create your own music mode sounds neat too. Rock Band's advantage is there are more songs to play because it's been out longer and maybe the online community and modes are better?
Tales of Symphonia 2 - this is the only confirmed quality game coming out later this year on wii? man, that's just sad unless Fatal Frame 4, or Disaster: day of crisis comes out...

I'm not joking. A comment like that usually inspires a long-winded response from Venter about how exciting Wii's upcoming lineup is. Funny as it is, it's true.

nope, just being honest that's all. there are about a dozen other games that seem interesting yet am skeptical about the quality like Castlevania Judgement. i also felt that way about Disaster: Day of Crisis too until i saw gameplay videos of the complete game and read gamer feedback. it looks like it may be a good action game like the Wii's own version of Uncharted. i hope it comes out this year, there's no release info yet. anyway, Tales is the only game i can look forward to right now because i know it's gonna be a quality game. around this time last year there was at least more than one game to look forward to on wii, but not so this holiday season..

I guess by Wii standards Tales of Symphonia 2 could be considered "quality", but everything I've heard about this game suggests it's a hastily put together spin-off.
