  1. Hey! Samurai warriors! I love that game! Much better than dynasty if you ask me. I am saving up for a ds myself, can’t wait to get that game for it.

  2. Titles I’m looking forward to:

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
    Light Saber Action finally hits Wii (but will it be any good?)

    Stylized and original looking game.. worked for Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros Treasure (which I highly recommend to all Wii owners, if you haven’t played it yet, go get it now.. seriously, go! IMO Zack and Wiki is the best game on Wii)

    Mario Kart Wii
    I have no doubt the controls will be flawless, plus online play. I’m a big racing genre and Nintendo fan, so this title is a must have for me.

    Didn’t play this on PS2, but I’ve heard a lot of great things about it.

    Worms: A Space Oddity
    I was looking forward to this title, until I heard the online play was cut. I’m hopeful it will be put back in, though the realistic side of me knows there’s a very slim chance of that happening.

    No More Heroes
    Looks to be an interesting game, similar to GTA, except stylized. I look forward to this one.

    Super Smash Bros.® Brawl
    I’m only slightly interested in this title. I’m not a big fighter genre fan, but it could be a great party game. I remember playing the original with my brother and we had a blast :) If voice chat was available, this could be a great online game, but it wont be.
