    OK...MotoGP isn't my cup of tea (though it's cool) and the simple but effective MechAssault glow will wear off soon and I don't think I'll ever even try Wacked...so, what's next?

    I have only a moderate interest in Ghost Recon and Unreal Tournament isn't going to happen as I utterly dispise the trainwreck that is UT2003.

    What's next? What games are coming soon that will, in your opinion, be known for their Live play more so than their solo play?

    I'm patiently waiting for Crimson Skies (which had better be Live-enabled) but beyond that I'm not sure.

    My most anticpated Live game is Capcom vs SNK: EO! Which should be out early December.

    Midtown Madness 3! I spent so much time with my buddies playing Midtown 1 and 2 just seeing who could have the most awesome jumps into buildings. Its such an awesome series and with DICE behind it, I have faith this will be a blast.

    Then there is:

    Marvel vs Capcom 2 - sure its on the DC and you probably own it, but online will be sweet.

    Phantasy Star Online I & II

    Project Gotham Racing 2

    Shining Lore

    Steel Batallion Online

    MotoGP 2

    Top Spin

    I wish EA would release Knockout Kings 2003 with a XBL enabled...

    I hope they make Crimson Skies XBL enabled.

    Also we need some more mellow games while they are at it - maybe another flavor of Tetris (not Tetris Worlds though - sheesh how could they mess up Tetris like that) or even a simple cheap board game/card game set (Hoyle perhaps).

    I can't wait for any good 3D fighting game to be released XBL (or PS2 for that matter but XBL would be nice with the voice). Ultimate Fighting Championship Online would be nice.

    I'm waiting for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Phantasy Star Online. I had a blast with the HTF gang playing PSO on the DC, and imagine it should be great on XBL.

    I'm definitely looking forward to Phantasy Star Online. I didn't play PSO with the group here but I played it online alot with my brother. I really enjoy the team based games much more than individual kill everything that moves types.

    I too am putting off buying Live for now.
    I do have NFL Fever 2k3, and I know I would love the NHL2k3, but other than that, nothing interests me. I am suprised they didnt have Tiger Woods 2k3 with live enabled. And like Andre said, a boxing game would be awesome.
    I am fighting the urge everyday to not run out & buy one.
    But I think I can manage.....


    P.S. Anyone have a good source for upcoming games??

    Two of them come to mind Scott.

    True Fantasy Live Online
    and
    Star Wars Galaxies

    Can't wait to try both of them.

    Camp,

    I'm a big fan of UT2K3 and UC. I'm curious about what you don't like about them. I'd appreciate if you could provide some more details or link to an existing discussion on this topic. I'm not interested in starting a debate, just trying to gain some insights.

    Thanks.

    PSO & Counterstrike are the two I'm craving. Does anyone know when we'll see them? I thought that CS was looking like next summer already.
    Of course, Steel Battalion online is what it's really about right? [​IMG] cannot wait!!!!
