    Since I only own X-box I just going to list some titles that may make good rentals/purchases. Quite a few nice titles are coming out for X-box in the next couple of weeks. I'm not saying good titles haven't come out there just will be more broader(mainstream, unlike morrowind) games that you can just "play".
    Ships 7/22
    NCAA Football 2003 - This game ships in 5 days! I will hopefully pick this up the day it comes out, this is probably going to be the peak of colledge football on this generation of consoles.

    Crazy Taxi 3 - May not float everyones boat, but it includes the 2 previous stages, as well as a new one in Las Vegas. A lot of mini-games are supposed to be present too.. I will get this since I sold my DC.

    POW - Looks very unique to me, i also heard it's like MOH where you get higher rankings for better escape times. We'll see if this delivers

    Ships 7/30
    Enclave - Supposed to be a grittier type of morrowind, looks very interesting. I will wait for reviews on this.

    Gun Metal - Wait and See, too little info

    Aggressive Inline - A PS2 port of a very acclaimed game, this looks very promising on the box.

    Fatal Frame - 8/2 I don't know if I believe this, because I never heard of this coming to X-box. But it's cool if it does, hopefully it has different gameplay mechanics than the typical sh/re

    NFL Fever 2003 8/6 - This is 3 weeks away, i think a very smart move by ms to get this game out a full week before madden hits. It will be the only football game to take advantage of the X-box and will be online

    After that its
    8/13
    Madden 2003
    Mat Hoffman BMX 2
    Steet Hoops
    David Beckman Soccer
    Blitz 20-03
    8/19 is Buffy(what in the hell are they possibly adding to this)
    ....i'll stop at a month

    i don't know about you guys but i am getting pretty phyched for a lot fo these games that are really close to being released

    I've got my eye on Mike Tyson boxing which is supposed to be relesed within a week. I haven't played a good boxing game since the NES so hopefully this one will be as good as the previews claim.

    Thanks for the tip Damien, I didn't know that a PS2 version of Tyson had already been released. To quote IGN

    Brian,
    Why don't you tell us how you really feel?[​IMG]
    Its the dry seaason my man. Not much is coming out for any of the systems right now. People are liable to jump on the next Britney Spears game if something new doesn't come out soon! (umm ok so maybe they aren't).
    Honeslty though, Gunmetal looks interesting, I'm willing to throw down some cash for it. Enclave I've been waiting for too long not to buy it. If I don't like either of them then they will promptly be returned.
    Also, jaded or not I like what I played of the CT3 demo so I'll buy it for the mini-games alone.
    (Gotta get Mark of Kri as well, that looks interesting!)

    Mark of Kri looks pretty cool and so does CT3. I think I might pick up both of those titles when they hit. If CT3 supports the custom soundtrack feature then it's a definite buy because I hated the music the first two and used to mute the music and play music from my computer. It would be pretty sweet if I could finally play the first levels plus a new one with music that doesn't make my ears bleed.

    i can see where you are coming from brian but i'm still getting CT3 just to have it. it can be a great multiplayer game too. As for POW, how old is this 2X system? If POW just copied the concept, then so what, what else can you amke unique about a POW game. I do see your hesitation on the other games

    I can't personally wait for Fatal Frame, the ps2 version is considered one of the scariest games around

    Besides those Aggresive Inline and NCAA are definetely getting picked up, and I'll wait for the reactions to the other games.

    Enclave - first UK review is out, from the Official XBOX Mag in the UK:

    5.8/10

    Good points:
    o Looks Stunning
    o Lots of Levels, weapons and characters

    Bad points:
    o Some astoundingly dense enemies
    o Combat is a bit limp
    o Can be stupidly unfair

    Summarising their review:
    Gothic fantasy based action RPG, third person, with a 'flawed first
    person' mode. Enemies don't react to the powerful blows you dish out.
    Environments look lush and very detailed, it looks incredibly sharp,
    but they lack any sort of interaction whatsoever. The only items you
    can interact with are switches, locks etc. Your attacks in combat seem
    to play the same animation, so you never get a feel of actually being
    in combat. If you upgrade your mighty axe, it doesn't make the enemies
    recoil any more. To make up for this, they've added an RPG feature
    where you see the number of damage points inflicted - which is ok in a
    heavy stat RPG, but doesn't really work in an action based game.


    Best line in the review is: Xbox power has been used to
    make everything look pretty, rather than to give the player more to do.

    Buffy got a good review in that same XBox mag BTW.

    Aggressive Inline was fun on the PS2 - it's not perfect, but it makes a nice change to THPS3.

    Ouch! No other love for NCAA Football 2003 in this thread!

    Man, I can't wait for this one. Less than a week! And as good as 2002 was, I get the feeling that this one is just going to blow it away. And looking forward to utilizing the XBox's hard drive for several dynasties at the same time, as well. . .

    This is gonna be the first XBox game I've bought since I bought the system and Halo back in March. Also got NFL Fever, but that was free, and I don't like it, so that doesn't count. . .

    I will be ALL OVER NCAA 2003 -- I can't wait. I was very disappointed in the lack of NCAA for the XBox last year. I bought Madden (since it's pretty much the same thing,) but I would take college football over pro any day! I can't wait for my Cougs to be "national champs".
