Week of October 4th
Just Dance 3
Rage – And just like that, the onslaught begins. Rage is one of those games that has had me intrigued since the first teaser websites started popping up years ago.
NBA 2K12
Dark Souls – I feel bad for Dark Souls. It should have a lot of momentum and excitement for newcomers to the series but it’s going to get lost in the shuffle of all the triple-A titles coming out the next two months.
Spider-man: The Edge of Time

Week of October 11th
Forza Motorsport 4 – Here’s another game that I definitely want to play but I don’t see that happening for a month or three.
Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record – And here’s the irony — of all the huge games coming out, I think I’m most excited about DR2, a game I’ve already played multiple times.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Week of October 18th
Batman: Arkham City – Normally, this is a day one get. But now? Who knows how far I’ll be in Rage. This could potentially be a “wait till it’s forty dollars” game.
Tropico 4
The Sims 3 Pets – Limited Edition – This will sell better than 90% of the games on the list.
Rocksmith – This game is a year and a half too late, right?

The Cursed Crusade
Disney Universe

Dance Central 2

  1. I am getting Aliens Infestation (which is not on this list) and Batman:AA for the PS3.

    That is it.

    I have no innate desire to keep up with the Joneses. Most of these games you can get 3-6 months later at a fraction of the cost.

    • Don’t know how I missed Aliens Infestation, which I am looking forward to, as well. It’s on there now.

      I’m with you with no keeping up with the Joneses. But I’m jonesing for Skyrim so I will be picking that one up at launch 🙂
