Salivation (not salvation)
There are a lot of games coming out in the fall. But not just any games--really good ones. Phenomenal-looking ones. Sexy ones.
I started this topic to shamelessly gush about Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria. How beautiful does that game look??. I can't remember the last time a game looked so good. I kid you not: I get drool in my mouth when I look at screenshots of that. Combine the sheer beauty of the game with (hopefully) the originality of Valkyrie Profile itself, and I think it'll be a force to be reckoned with.
Of course, I should also cite Final Fantasy XII as a most-anticipated. Which it is. Is it true they're using British voice actors for FFXII? I read that somewhere, but I'm not sure if it was a farce.
I must also give three cheers for the imminent release of Rogue Galaxy. Level 5 + no loading times + a character that looks like Xiahou Dun from Dynasty Warriors = heart palpitations.
Not to mention, there are finally some pretty-looking games coming out for XBox360. I've already preordered Enchanted Arms, and I'll probably preorder Ninety-Nine Nights before August.
If I had to name something else, Tales of Abyss would be the glaring omission from my list so far. Importers seem to love it. If only it was multi-player, I'd anticipate it as much as the others.
Has anyone else noticed what a good Fall season we're scheduled to have? I don't think I've ever seen so many promising games coming out at once. If you agree with me, which games are you anticipating the most--and why?
