    Wii has Smash Bros. Brawl, which should have come out this month because it's already done. PS3 also has Haze which got pushed back even though it was done, for the same reasons as Brawl (congested Holiday lineup). On the multiplat front there's also Devil May Cry 4 and Tom Clancy's Endwar.

    By the way WHF, I wouldn't go calling Killzone 2 a giant disappointment when you listed Too Human and Fable 2 in the Xbox 360 section. LAMLAMLAM

    LAM all you want but Too Human's video diaries show a lot more promise than Killzone 2. Infinitely as much when you consider that Silicon Knights has produced a few great games while Guerrilla has yet to produce one. :D

    PS: Haze looks awful. It's from the developers of PantsSplitters and I'm pretty sure it's not even exclusive. :(

    LOL! Fable 2 would be a giant disappointment? Why? The first game was brilliant. But I guess you don't appreciate brilliance, you appreciate trash like DMC and Killzone.

    :whatever:

    I didn't notice his knock on Fable! How dare he! That was one of the best action-adventure games on the console!! :mad:

    Yeah, his opinion on pretty much anything has lost all credibility since he compared it to that heap Killzone.

    I'll always give an opinion a listen, but Fable was a much better game than Killzone. I'm betting Too Human turns out great as well.

    Indeed. Meh, that sort of ignorance angers me, though. I'm sick of having to protect that game from people who saw the game and said, "Where's the ability to plant an acorn and watch it grow?!" And proceeded to throw the controller in frustration and cry/whine on games boards about it. Most of their criticisms lean towards the childish disappointment side.

    It was a beautiful looking game, well-polished, and it had an interesting storyline. Plus, GI and IGN gave it a 95 and 93, respectively, and that's all I care about.

    Fable was not a bad game, but it was still a DISAPPOINTMENT. It was nothing near as big as the empty promises that Peter Molynux fed us for the years leading up to its release, so much so that he actually ended up posting a written apology online about the game failing to meet the hype by a long shot. I did not say it was a bad game, but I was pointing out the hypocrisy of WHF saying Killzone 2 will be a disappointment when Fable 2 is also the sequel to a disappointing game. And also, to WHF's comment that Guerrilla has not made a good game, I will say that he has obviously chosen to ignore Killzone Liberation for PSP.

    As for Too Human, I stopped caring about what the developers have said about whether or not it will be good, because the game does not look very good at all. With each underwhelming screen shot and disappointed preview I read, it becomes more apparent that they were trying to use Epic as a scapegoat for why their game isn't delivering. People who are hyping it are hyping it for the same reasons that people hyped Lair. Developer track record could not save Lair from the fact that it had a kind of weak concept, and that it was very sloppily made.

    I won't deny Fable was the ****, but WHF should know to put that on the 2009 list. And Bango Kazooie 3? Come on.

    And does anyone know if Fable works on the 360?

    It'll be there. EA already did the grunt work of getting Source to run on PS3.

    I guess... it'll make 2009/10 good years for bargain bins though.

    You should get it on PC though, along with Blas and Extro and WHF and possibly Zenien, so we can all go zombie hunting together.

    That'd be mega awesome. Me and Blas could be silly, while you, WHF, and Zenien argue over the texturing of the door you're opening.

    I can go ahead and confirm that both WHF and Zenien are wrong.

    You were on WHF's side. Can you get head sets for the PC? Cause if I got a top of the range PC, I could also get the Halo trilogy, Gears, Alan Wake and such...

    Yeah, most people have PC mics/headsets these days. And I'm never on WHF's side. Have you read what that disloyal punk has been saying about me? That lying cock. I don't even own a hamster.
