I was browsing the release dates at gamestop...after crackdown 2 the gaming industry is going to be in a major slump as far as big retail titles go for quite a while. Because i know its so popular i assume that Halo Reach will stop the slump, but besides that, things dont look to be picking up until october.

I'm glad that xbox live at least will have castlevania and lara croft, but I dont expect them to last very long.

Anyone looking forward to anything between July-October besides halo? I was rather dissapointed that Dead Space 2 isnt going to make an october release.

Damnit i dont want to fall back to WoW again....I broke the addiction!

Edit: Your right, i did forget about SC2, so i will add it to the list. Still is a very short list.

    Yeah, couldn't agree more. I'm an avid gamer and have most consoles / handhelds... considering my broad interest in game genres I can barely keep up as is.

    Also I need to learn to stop buying shiny new games.

The good news is that Forbiddance spell allows you to prevent enemies different alignment from entering a consecrated area, which is actually useful!

    Why is that? Can't you play as all three races in multiplayer from the get-go?

    Edit: And I know that they've said the Wings of Liberty campaign will be as big as SC1, but I'm really skeptical about that. Besides, switching perspectives was a big part of the fun.

    I'm actually welcoming the slump a bit. There should be some good Xbox Live Arcade games in July and August to keep me happy(Monkey Island 2, and hopefully Limbo and Comic Jumper), and September has Halo Reach and Atelier Rorona for me.

    Besides, I've got a rather large backlog as is.

    Even if they are expansion priced, expansion prices haven't been stable as of late. Blizzard used to charge $35 for a expansion, and since WoW, it's gone up to $40.

    That's $140 for a full SC2 in that case.

    Battle Chest. Anyone that buys SCII out of the gate is a big silly goose (and isn't intending to use the MP portion).

    I intend to revel in SCII three years from now, when the inevitable battle chest comes around.
