while i’m collecting my thoughts for my next review, i thought i’d post this list of games that are coming out in the next few months that i’m interested in. ever since i got a DS (and … i might as well mention this here … a wii … yes it’s true … i’m starting to think i’m in danger of losing the right to call myself a retro gamer … oh the humanity …), ahem, a DS and a wii, i’ve been paying more attention to when games are coming out.
in particular i’m firmly fixated on the release date of smash bros brawl (december 3rd in north america), and each weekday update at the official smash bros website just makes me more impatient. let it be known that the eminent release of the new smash bros is what (almost) single-handedly drove this consumer and fanboy to put an end to his delay buying a wii once and for all. not zelda twilight princess, not mario galaxy, not metroid prime, but it was smash bros all the way. even if it’s only half as good as it looks so far, it’ll still be awesome to play as pit in his mighty comeback, and to see all the other nintendo references — and now including 3rd party characters as well. bring it!
anyway … i had come across this list on amazon, which provides a highlighted overview of the best wii games, past, present, and future. there’s prob. a completely comprehensive list of upcoming wii/DS games somewhere online, but in the meantime here’s my list of games i’m interested in. def. not all ones i’m going to buy, but ones i’m keeping my eye on. most of these dates are from amazon.com.
