Nothing at the moment...

Probably Just Cause at some point, and maybe one of the NBA games - I haven't played a console basketball game since Double Dribble on the Nintendo, man that game rocked. smile

Mario vs Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis looks like fun, but I have to start saving up for Wii.  Oh and if I could stop buying games that take 100+ hrs to complete (DQVIII- I'm 1/3 of the way through it) have unlimited replay value (Advanced Wars DS) I might actually get to work on my backlog. Buying Okami last week added apparently another 30 hrs to it  Tongue.

Next game I'm likely to buy is Bully in October...Then GH II in Nov.  Gah.

I'm thinking I won't be able to resist the urge for Just Cause on the 360 even though I haven't completed Lego Star Wars 2 yet.

EVENTUALLY I'll get Valkyrie Profile 2. Right now, though, I'm juggling both Enchanted Arms and Okami with my limited free time.

Nothing for me.

March of the Minis looks good (played the demo from the download station at work) but it's not my kind of game. Looks like fun if you like Pikmin or lemmings.

Other than that, still busy w/ Enchanted Arms, LEGO Star Wars, Starfox, etc

NBA 2k7

Bubble Bobble Revolution intrigues me.  The game'll probably blow, but I'm in the maybe camp.

Okami is still on sale at Fry's through tomorrow.  I'm waffling at picking it up, or wait the week for the inevitable Valkyrie Profile 2 sale there.  probably going to go with VP2.  Nevermind the half dozen unplayed jrpg's I have for the PS2 already. :icon_confused:

Welcome aboard!
No offense to you or anyone here, but I am finding it a tad fishy to be scanning the gaming boards and seeing a scattering of very enthusiastic posts for Just Cause that seem suspiciously like viral marketing, surrounded by post after post of people who have actually played the game saying it's complete crap. Again, I'm not accusing anyone, but it just seems a little odd... :icon_confused:
I think I'll wait for the serious review sites to weigh in.

[edited to add] scores are lukewarm but not terrible:
IGN 68%
GameSpot 72%
GameSpy 60%

Nah, nothing viral here. Just an avid gamer thats recently migrated from a staunch PC gaming background to the 360 console. It's the only console that's managed to tear me away from my keyboard and mouse!!

As far a Just Cause goes, I'm attracted to the open endedness of it. That's about it. I like games that I can wander around and get lost in. Saint's Row is another game that great for "doing your own thing".

The only reason I found Gaming Trend is because I was looking for an old buddy of mine - Ron Burke who started ConsoleGold. Was surprised when I found it was gone! Does anyone if if Ron is around anymore??
