    Games... fasands of 'em...

    Well, 4.

    Far Cry 2 out in 4 days.
    Fable 2 out in 4 days.
    Fallout 3 out in 11 days.
    Gears of War 2 out in 18 days.

    All according to Gameplay.co.uk anyway.

    Its not a 'which shall I get' thread, I'll wait for the reviews and pick 1... yes, just 1, I'm not dropping another £80-£120 on 2/3 games. Only got PES 2 days ago, and plenty of others unfinished.

    Anyway its a well busy period coming up, so which of the 4 above, if any, will you be getting your deformed, grasping claws upon, come release time?

    Re: Games... fasands of 'em...

    I'll either get Fallout 3 or Saints Row 2 (PC).

    Oops didn't see this was the xbox forum lol. In which case none. I have no room for an xbox in my life. I do really want fable 2 though, hope it comes out on PC.

    Re: Games... fasands of 'em...

    Got Fallout 3 Game special edition on order, really looking forward to it. Will get Gears 2 also when it is released. Bit unsure about Fable 2 ath the min, wanting to get Dead Space also at some point, not really interested in Farcry 2 though.

    Up until then just picked up GRAW 2 (Which I'm nearly finished as completely hooked and is awesome), Splinter Cell Double Agent with is a bit slower gameplay and a lot of trial by error as any stealth game but enjoying it. Also picked up again Dead Rising just for sheer mindless gameplay. Going to Grab Rainbow Six Vegas 1 & 2 at some point also as I'm really getting into tactical type shooters now. Strange but I didn't like the origional GRAW.
