I particularly liked FFX , XS was good and I hear TOS is being ported to PS2. XS 2 and WA Code F are due out in early 2005 and SG will obviously endorse the Growlanser games being remade by Working Design. I know KOTOR 2 is coming out soon, but I don’t know when it will be ported to PC.
Shin Megami Tensei - Heard a few good things about it
Star Ocean 3 - Can’t reccomend this one, I hated SO2.
SFAC - There’s no reason not to buy this
XML - It’s pretty damn good But single player is kinda lame…if you can get some buddies, it’s rad.
Viewtiful Joe - GREAT game, though I heard that the PS2 version has slowdown issues… I don’t know how bad they are, or if they’re even bad at all. If this doesn’t bother you, this is one of the most amazing platformers around.
Other than that, Growlanser Generations, Metal Gear Solid 3, Capcom Fighting Evoluion, and Megaman X8 should all be out within a month.
I would recommend against SO3. I liked SO2, but SO3 just didn’t do it for me. Viewtiful Joe is alright, but there are better games out there. Like someone said earlier, MGS3 is coming out in a couple of days. If you are a fan of Street Fighter games, the anniversary collection is a no brainer. I haven’t played X-Men Legends, but ti looks cool and has gooten good reviews.
Unless I’m completely irrational (which there is always a possiblitly, however unlikely) December 30, 2004 is only about a month and half away, which more than qualifies for “in the next few months”. Now that I think about it, I should have said “in the next few weeks”, but that’s getting picky.
In case you were wondering Suikoden IV is supposed to be out January 11.
Square Enix expects Dragon Quest VIII to have sufficiently sold more than enough copies by the time they plan to release Final Fantasy XII. Currently this title is planned for a Fall 2005 release in North America.
