So, E3 has been and gone and a couple of titles have already been put back to 2010 (damn you Red Dead Redemption and Bioshock 2).

What games are must-purchases for you between now and December 31st and what titles are you firmly (but painfully) sitting on the fence waiting for a review.

I'll do my full list later, but the first one is actually out today, Twisted Pixel's 'Splosion Man on XBLA.

May still get it, just not a must buy game as getting fairly bored of 09 now.

You only ever got easy wins against me when I had only just got the game, you barely play it now.

Hearts of Iron 3 out on the PC in 2 weeks :lux:

That, Anarchy Online and replaying The Witcher and Fallout 3 (Xbox) should do me for the year.

Blimey, haven't played Anarchy Online for years - I didn't know it was even still going.

There really is a lack of good games coming out at the moment, and there hasn't been in a while imo. The next game before FIFA 10 I'm looking forward to, if it isn't put back again, is "This is Vegas". Looks a good, gta-esque game with a lot to do in it.

True it does look very good. Only thing is I'll be shit at the gambling bits but the rest will be fun. Driving down the Strip in Vegas does look good :)

I was going to buy Rise Of Flight but the w@nkers want 5 euros for each additional aeroplane they add to it beyond the stock 4 or 5. Sod that, they've just lost a customer, and thus several customers because i'm in a clan.

I can confirm this.

So much for waiting until October (i actually realised that it doesn't appear to be getting a European release), october is the US release date. Seeing as the Asian version is also in English i went ahead and imported it from Hong Kong.

Simply awesome game, really enjoying it. Kind of hard to explain what the game is like, a mix of heavy rpg and action. Think Oblivion meets god of war :)

Heres the review......
