Well I haven't been here for too long, though only recently I am starting to become a lot more active on this site. Anyways, there are tons of games that will kill my wallet in 2010 (I have no job, but I have other means of making money).
Out of the three consoles, I have to give the nod to the Wii because 2010 looks like it's going to be phenominal in terms of releases. 2009 was a good year, though not as good as many maked it out to be, but it's way better than 2008. Not only the first party releases (Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and Sin & Punishment 2 to name a few), I'm also happy to see how much improvement the third party support has become. With games like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, No More Heroes 2, Monster Hunter Tri, Red Steel 2, and Arc Rise Fantasia (to name a few), they show a lot of promise. I'm sure there are a lot more, but I'll check them out as time progresses.
What comes in second is the console I currently don't own as of this moment (but hopefully during the new year) is the Playstation 3. Now I wont be missing out on all of the exclusives it has to offer me. I am also interested in games like God of War III, White Knight Chronicles, The Last Guardian, and many others. Sony's wand, while it may be a clone of the Wiimote with Motion Plus attached, is intriguing. After watching the demos for it, such as the Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, I'd be more than willing to pick this up for that, and many other games that support it, even though I do have the Wii. I can't wait to see what else Sony is willing to dish out.
Unfortunately, XBOX 360 is going to be third in terms of the games that I'm interested in, because quite frankly, the only exclusive that appeals to me is Alan Wake. It looks like it's going to be awesome, but I'm not much into Splinter Cell, I'm tired of Halo, and I never got into Mass Effect. The only games I would get on the 360 are Multiplatform games, but even then, not all of them I'd buy on 360 (and I detest the pay for online thing with XBOX Live). The only thing I really like about the 360 nowadays is the XBOX Live Arcade service. It's not that I hate it, but I am disappointed with it. I personally don't think that Project Natal is going to be huge. I just don't see what type of impact it will make, and while it may be too early to tell whether it will flop or prove to be successful, I'll just wait and see what happens.
I'm not sure what to tag this, so this is pretty much a review on what I think about the 2010 line up, when the year has barely even started yet. Let's just hope that 2010 is all for the best. Happy New Years to all of you, and keep gaming! read
