How much will November run you?

From now until the end of November has the largest collection of quality games EVER released within such a short time span, to the best of my recollection. I was making a list of games to go pre-order at the local EB_Stop, and I was floored that I was going to be throwing down well over 850 bucks. O_o

PC: Crysis 931665_73146.jpg Call of Duty 4 939217_86933.jpg Hellgate: London 927136_65820.jpg Unreal Tournament III 928117_67127.jpg






Wii: Super Mario Galaxies 915692_68186.jpgLinks X-bow training 928518_20071015_thumb005.jpg RE: Umrella Chronicles 933020_75582.jpg Mario & Sonic 938798_85964.jpg Guitar Hero III 939093_86663.jpg






360: Mass Effect 930279_70694.jpg Assassin's Creed 930278_75331.jpg Army of Two 932861_75329.jpg Rock Band 938870_86083.jpg Beautiful Katamari 939134_86732.jpg





The sad/good thing is, I really can't trim down that list, they're all top tier highly anticipated games. I'm really, truly lucky that I recently got a new job and can afford the splurge (barely), but what about everyone else? What's on your "must buy" list for the next 30-40 days? Are you going to go nuts like I am and buy them all on release, buy them throughout 08' as money and time permits, or painfully cut your list down to the ones you hold most dear? Also, how in the hell are YOU going to find time to play them all?



PS: Sorry if the thread topic is a duplicate, I know this topic has been ongoing in other threads, but I didn't notice any central thread of discussion.

    Beautiful Katamari came out last week.

    November would have way way more expensive for me if I had a Wii on top of a 360. But the cost of both Assassins Creed and Mass Effect isn't exactly a soft blow to my wallet either.

    Either Call of Duty 4 or Assassin's Creed is going to have to wait until another month.

    FFXII: Revenant Wings and apparently Megaman ZX: Advent, since it's been delayed. Those the only certainties, however I'd really like to get Mario. I'm just not sure if the funds will allow.

    DQM:J is also a possibility, but I hate the monster designs.

    And now I cry over my lack of a 360.

    Well, in pre-November spending, $530 for an XBox 360 + Orange Box. And soon around $100 for GH3.

    In November (in order of importance):
    Rock Band (gah $200 in Canada probably)
    Assassin's Creed
    Mass Effect
    Call of Duty 4

    I think that's quite enough money to splurge. I'll probably hold off on Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4 until I'm done with the others too.

    Hellgate: London + founders ($200)
    Mario Galaxy ($50)
    Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles ($50)
    Links Crossbow Training ($25)

    Everything else is going to have to wait D:.

    Probably nothing, since October has broken me like a old man's hip on shuffleboard night. And Phoenix Wright is due out this week to boot.

    It's going to be hard resisting Revenant Wings though. I'd really like CoD4, but that is out of the question for the time being.

    I'm not planning on getting anything but Mass Effect.

    Dracula X/Castlevania PSP and Disgaea PSP are just around the corner.
    And Phoenix Wright 3, shoot.

    And I'm considering getting Hellgate.

    I want GH3 strictly for the music, but no Harmonix and awful character designs leave me hesitant.

    I only have a PC, Wii, and a DS, so no 360 loving for me. I'm definitely getting Mario, and RE:UC will be a "wait 'til bargain bin," and I'll wait for a price drop with GHIII. That's probably it, actually, my wallet will be fine.

    I do have my eye on Zack and Wiki later this week, reviews pending.

    Edit: I'm also interested in Hellgate: London, but for whatever reason I just don't feel a need to get it this year. Eh.

    If I decide to buy all the games I want, it shapes up like this:

    Rock Band
    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
    Folklore
    Assassin's Creed
    Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
    Haze

    I'm hoping to put off at least one or two of them for Christmas so I won't have to buy them... 'cause I suppose I should be saving up to pay the other half of my tuition. Ah well!

    I only need worry about Rock Band if it comes out for PS2 and my GH1 guitar will work with it.

    Otherwise, I'll have to pass.

    The only game I'm looking forward to is Mass Effect. If it plays well and plays for the 35+ hours that they've stated it is, I'm looking at an estimated 140 hours of gameplay. That should hold me over until I decide to pick up something else.

    Way too much:
    Rock Band
    Mass Effect(Already payed off, thankfully.)
    Assassin's Creed
    Super Mario Galaxy

    It wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for Rock Band's crazy price tag.

    It's mostly a race between Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4. But I'll probably, unfortunately only be able to but CoD4.

    $140, for sure, in Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed and Link's Crossbow Training. $240 max if I pick up Army of Two and Umbrella Chronicles.

    Compared to last year, this is easy.

    COD4 $60
    Super Mario Galaxy $50
    Assassin's Creed $60
    Mass Effect $60
    Rock Band $170 - $20 (GH2 guitar trade in) = $150
    Maybe Link's Crossbow Training $25

    So $380 to $405

    $270 on two games. Luckily they're already paid off. Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed will have to wait, however.

    Urahonky: Hellgate London + founders = $200? What are founders? And you're really prepared to pay $200 for an MMORPG?

    Must-have:
    Sam & Max Season 2
    Rock Band
    Unreal Tournament 3
    Trauma Center 2
    Assassin's Creed
    LifeSigns (if it's not just another damn temp date)

    Maybe Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Ontamarama depending on reviews.

    I have a great set of friends and family, so as long as I can wait until Christmas, I can probably get most of what I want then. I'll be getting Mario Galaxy, though, and maybe the Zapper with Crossbow Training. Other than that, I'll be able to hold off, I'm sure.

    One question. Is Mario Party DS online?
