Viewtiful Joe
Need For Speed: Underground
1080: Avalanche
Soul Calibur 2
XIII

All games that interest me.
I'll get them all anyway, the question is: when?

It's my birthday in a week, but I'll get something before then, then some stuff with my money.

But what?
And when?
Tommorrow? Well, Today, but, THE 3rd.

Probably XIII or NFS, as they interest me most, but what are your recommendations?

Apart from the fact that my brother has it sitting in his room right now, and that he bought me Need For Speed for my birthday (Long story, but he had to take back the stuff he got me for Crimbo as he didn't realise that it was for the PS2, and my wee brother already owns it, so he went back, they would only give him vouchers to use in that shop, so he had the meagre choice of 10 games, and most of them were either already in teh house or utter crap, so he got me NFS).

Anyway, i've got about 6 mates with it, and none of them have complained yet.
But, I'm going oyut to get Viewtiful Joe and Soul Calibur within the next week or two, and I'll get 1080 if I find it cheap.

Xtreme-G Racing Association. A very good game, sadly overlooked in the wake of F-Zero GX. You can actually pick it up for as cheap as 9.99 now.

Burnout 2 >>>>>> waay over NFSU.

NFSU might have all the parts, music and 'cool' stuff, but it kinda forgot to be a decent arcade racer at the same time.

Burnout 2 doesn't have all the frilly rubbish, it just is supreme arcade racing.

Metroid Prime or TimeSplitters 2 if you don't yet have them.

Need for Speed is dull. Upgrading your car is thoroughly unrewarding and the gameplay is samey, boring and really isn't that fast. Honestly, I've actually heard many people say it's not very good. To be fair, it has it's moments, but I wouldn't call it anything above average and certainly not something to get when you can purchase Burnout 2 or XGRA.

Get 1080.

Well, I got XIII yesterday.
It's fantastic.
My brother's gonna get me Viewtiful Joe.
I seen Soul Calibur for 30 quid whilst I was out yesterday, so, using cash, I'll get that.
Then it's a chouice between NFS and 1080

Keep in mind that I've heard more than one person say they disliked 1080 (They liked the original), but you're so far the only person who's told me not to get NFS)
