    Steph, Mass Effect 2 should be in bold with *’s either end to exemplify it’s towering importance, thanks.

    ME2 and DAO for me, although I’m not so convinced they fixed the issues in the first ME and DAO really hasnt done anything spectacular to earn my attention. Hopefully it’s a good one, unlike Bioware’s latest games

    FIFA 10 – October US (UK Q2 2010) (DS, Mobiles, PC, PSP, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

    That cant be right, FIFA delayed till 2010 in the UK while the US gets it in October? Surely, you mean the other way, Steph.

    Anyways, just FIFA and Mass Effect 2 interests me.

  10. Daodan

    @anasui: I’m quite confident they have. Virtually every complaint from Mass Effect was addressed; the boring world exploration got an overhaul, the tedious and unrewarding sidequests should now be not-so-tedious and all the more rewarding, they completely redid the inventory system and hell.. they even dumped the Mako. Mass Effect was a truly excellent game, with some imperfections. I hope they polished those off for ME2. That would make a slammer.

    if that turns out to be true my friend (not in the sense i dont believe you, but meaning they deliver what they promised), then I’ll be the biggest fan

    What the fuck, Lutzie? Not one game?

    This is a pretty decent list. At least five games on there which pique my interest from the off, with a few more on the bi/curious list.

    EA’s turnaround of late is nothing short of astonishing!

    lol lutz do u even like pc games?

    daodan how do u know all that? i mean i know they’ve adressed some of those issues but not all and idk how. the mako for example, i’m pretty sure they’ll keep it. they’ve said so in the last gametrailerstv show.
