    Unless some games get delayed, late Oct/early Nov will be a dark time for the wallets of Xbox owners. I was just checking out the upcoming release dates:
    • 10/29 - Shenmue II
    • 10/29 - Tony Hawk 4
    • 10/29 - Unreal Championship
    • 11/1 - Dead or Alive Extreme Volleyball
    • 11/5 - Brute Force
    • 11/5 - Xbox Live Starter Kit
    All that in a one week period, and there are still others that look pretty good around the same period. [​IMG]

    I heard that. For me, the temptations start later this month when Quantum Redshift comes out. I had previously been assuming that I'd pick the game up when it came out, but considering how much I've been spending lately I'm thinking I might just hold off and wait for the stuff that I really can't do without. If I bought everything I was interested in right away, things would get out of hand very quickly [​IMG]

    I don't quite get the anticipation surrounding Dead or Alive Extreme Volleyball.
    Are a lot of gamers really THAT into volleyball?
    Or is that they're into watching computer-generated women jump around in bikinis?
    I'm not referring to you here, Dave F, or anyone in particular; I just don't get the excitement over this game in general.

    Well, Beach Spikers is a helluva lot of fun. [​IMG] Also, coming from Team Ninja, we know that this will be one of, if not the most graphically impressive Xbox titles available.

    You know of course you don't need to buy them all at once, nor do you NEED to buy them on launchday... In fact, it may work out cheaper in the longrun to wait on a few [​IMG]

    I don't think I can wait longer than, oh say 5 minutes or so, for Unreal, Brute Force, and DoA Volleyball. [​IMG]

    Tony Hawk and the Live starter kit are no brainers. Unreal depends on how much time Unreal Tournament 2003 is taking from my life.

    Whats the story with Marvel vs Capcom 2? Is it gonna be the same as on dreamcast?
    Thats one of my favorite fighting games of all time, and this is the first I've heard of anything for the Xbox in that vein..

    Ugh.
    I need to hit the Powerball.
    If I do, I'll share the love.
    Steel Battalion,anyone? [​IMG]
    I gotta pick & choose. Most will wait for price drops.
    And there will be,simply because there's gonna be a huge glut of titles on the market.

    Thank goodness three different stores around me rent XBox games. Thats the only way I am going to survive.
    When is the release date for Time Sliders 2? I finally tried the XBox Magazine demo last night and it was a lot of fun.

    Xbox Live, DoA VB, Shenmue II, and Steel Battallion are my no-brainers.

    If Mech Assualt and others rate highly, I think they'll just have to go on my X-mas list. dang. too much to play, with the Xbox and the PS2.
