This schedule doesn't give a hardcore gamer any time to breathe. All this and I haven't even mentioned when Diablo III and Star Wars: The Old Republic (both for PC) will be dropping.

The only thing I am glad for is that I have a Gamefly account.

Did I miss anything? Which games are you jonesing for? Let me hear about it below.


  1. Batman: Arkham City and Skyrim are the two main games I am ready to kill someone for...

  2. Uncharted, BF3, Elder Scrolls and Halo all must owns!!

  3. Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, Gears 3, Halo will be my main squeezes.

    After that, I'll Gamefly Dead Island (A great trailer does not make a game great). After that BF3 and COD: MW3 (Just because I have to finish the story).

    Uncharted 3 can wait until I finally finish Uncharted 2. The same holds true for Assassin's Creed. I still need to finish 2 and Bloodlines.

  4. I am gonna get Gears of War, BF3, then everything november 15th.
