What to look for in 2007

As the year comes to a close, I plan on doing a small recap of 2006, but it’s never to early to start thinking about 2007. Nick takes a look at twenty games he’s looking forward to (ten here and ten more here). I agree with just about everyone of them. In fact, my top 8+2 games for next year are

1. Mario Galaxy (I’m an unabashed Mario fanboy)
2. Halo 3
3. Turok (the idea of more Turok multiplayer goodness is nectar to my soul)
4. Mercenaries 2 (if it comes to the Xbox)
5. Lost Planet
6. Mass Effect (RPG goodness)
7. Assassin’s Creed
8. Bioshock (Don’t know a lot about this series, but I know this game looks amazing)

I won’t be playing the Wii (in all likelihood) until next year, so the two games I’m looking forward to that are already out are:

1. Zelda Twilight Princess (duh)
2. Super Swing Golf

It looks like another great year for gaming.

    My dad went shopping for a new Digital camera (he’s a amature photographer) at Best Buy, we were there for 3 hours, (he didn’t end up buying anything, as the coupon he had in very small print said “exludes digital SLR”) And I played the 360 for a while, I was under impressed with the lost planet demo… Even after turning up the sesitivity, the aiming was still very whacky… I dunno, mabey I’ve just caught the Wii bug, and no longer really like normal games…

  2. the aiming in lost planet is definitely not as smooth as most other third or first person shooters, but i think there’s a nice methodical pace to it as a result. i’m hoping that the mechs later in the game get a bit zippier though. pacing will make or break the whole experience.

  3. FS – Yeah, the aiming isn’t perfect. You’ve just got Wii on the brain.

    Nick – At first I didn’t like the mech part in the demo (I’m not a huge mech fan) but once I got used to it, I was really liking driving the mech around.
