I thought I'd take this opportunity, then, to take a look into the future, all the way to the year 2000 (and 9). Thinking about the month of May, and the lack of any games I want to pick up releasing therein, I set my eyes to the beyond, and even beyond the beyond (not the shitty PSX RPG), to take stock of what's coming out over the horizon, and what of that I'm interested in.
A quick list:
Metal Gear Solid 4
Etrian Odyssey 2
Ninja Gaiden 2
MOON (little known DS game)
Mirror's Edge (that trailer looks incredible!)
FF and DQ remakes for the DS
Bionic Commando Re-Armed (the remake of the 8-bit)
Puzzle Quest: Galactrix (...come to Butthead....)
I guess that about covers it. Not all of those are sure buys, but they're definitely on my radar. So many games!
