    February looks somewhat boring domestically. May pick up Xbox PSO. Otherwise a good time to pick up some interesting looking titles, hopefully at a good price.

    The import scene is more interesting Feb. & March with ZOE II, Chaos Legion, King of Colosseum Green, and the Soul Calibur 2 ports coming.

    I still am playing november/december/ releases
    for games. There's just been so much to play and so little
    time. That's the downside of having all 3 systems.

    Capcom vs SNK- I will pick this one up for sure since I
    really need a new Online game.
    Indiana Jones- I will get this one when I finish some other
    games first.
    SW:Knights of the Old republic- I will also wait for the reviews on this too. Isn't this the star wars title that was
    sopposed to have online play?.
    Phantasy Star Online- I agree with you on how much money
    they want for the online part.
    DOA:Volleyball - Still have to get this.
    Panzer Dragon Orta - Still have to get this.

    -Mike

    Indina Jones I'll buy the first day it comes out.

    I was gonna do the same with Star Wars: KOTOR, but now I'm not too sure since I'm a little iffy about turn based light saber combat. Plus I haven't heard of the company that made the game( but apparently, lots of other people have).

    PSO is phantasy star online. A very popular game series. I played the others a few times. With this game it all comes down to if and how much they charge to play it a month. If its $5 it would be no biggee for me. Anything higher then that for only 4 player online action ill stay away and save the $$ for Fable and Galaxies.

    I had PSO (GC) online but it is $10 a month. I highly doubt Microsoft will charge less. I only had it online for the one month I paid for it... Too much..

    Not much on GC next month so I'll give Skies of Arcadia my vote (Jan 28). Go out and buy it so a sequel will be made, as reported by www.planetgamecube.com

    Bruce, I know All Star Baseball 2004 will be online, not sure about EA's game or Sega's World Series.

    Next Month holds some delights for me.

    Definite buys for the month:

    Guilty Gear X2 (PS2)
    Skies of Arcadia Legends (GC)
    Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox) (Its Bioware, no need to worry!)
    Phantasy Star Online Ep I and II (Xbox) (Ax is on his way back, and I'm looking forward to the OAR avengers reunion!)
    XenoSaga Ep1 (PS2) (After hearing about the emphasis on cinematics in the game, I'm a bit less excited but any title that has Xenogears as a relation I WILL try)
    Sea Dogs II (Xbox)-Pirates, RPG, Bethsoft publishing. Yes I will buy. (Though I may go with the PC version)
    Splinter Cell (PC)- High resolution Splinter Cell. Don't have to say much more than that. Looking to push my new 3.06gig P4[​IMG].


    On Deck for rental or possible buy:

    Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge (Xbox)-Looks good but not sure if it will be my kind of game.

    Indiana Jones and The Emperors Tomb (Xbox, PC, PS2)- The Collective really did a great job with Buffy but I want to give Indy a try before straight out buying. If it turns out to be Buffy quality, I'm all over it. (Either be purchasing the Xbox or PC version)

    Everquest Online Adventures (PS2)- I enjoyed what I played of the beta but I'm not sure if I want to bother with it off this off the bat. If a monthly fee is getting paid out it will go to PSO above any other game. Though EQ may be a purchase in March-April. Not sure.

    Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance (PC)-May pick up the PC version of Substance. The first MGS was very well done on the PC and if the second is of the same quality, I'll grab it just to have the definitive version.

    I'm only looking forward to one game in February - Phantasy Star Online Episode I&II for the Xbox. I don't really care how much they charge - I'm a PSO whore.[​IMG]

    I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Hands down, the only game that has me salivating next month is:

    The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time - Regular Edition and Master Quest for GCN

    Woops, edit. Thought you meant the original GC Zelda, not the bonus disc. I anticipate this too but for some reason I self consciously thought of it being released with the game, my fault.

    Just a question about PSO prices.

    I thought that paying for a Xbox Live subscription, meant that you didn't have to pay 'per game'?

    As for what I'm looking forward to... well, Capcom vs. SNK would be something I would want to pick up. Just too bad that I don't have an Xbox yet. [​IMG]

    So, I'll be sticking with Animal Crossing.

    Star Wars: KOTR (XBox) looks like a likely buy for me - I'll wait on the buzz from Romier and others. [​IMG]

    I was hoping Rainbow III: Raven Shield would be coming out next month on the XBox, but I guess there isn't a semi-solid release date for it anymore. Boo. If it doesn't come out next month, I'll just save my money for Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

    Indiana Jones the Vampire Slayer and The Emperors Tomb
    PSO

    Possibly Star Wars KOTOR. Skepticism runs high in this one, it does.
