What games are on your "must buy" list for the rest of this year?

For me there are some absolutes, some probably and some maybes

Must buys
Zelda Twiilight Princess
Soul Calibur III
FF Dirge of Cerberus (it's listed on ebgames as November, hopefully that's true)
Megaman X Collection
Metroid Prime Hunters (which would require me to buy a DS)
Mario Kart DS
Castlevania DS

Probably
Castlevania Curse of Darkness
Viewtiful Joe DS
Killer 7

Maybe
True Crime 2 (I enjoyed the first one, and this is supposed to be alot longer)
Prince of Persia 3
Tony Hawk American Wasteland
Super Mario Brothers DS

There's just too much I want for me to even THINK about getting an Xbox 360 this year, maybe next year.

Pretty sure they are all early 2006, at least. Grandia 3 is definately the most promising game S-E has shown this gen, IMO.

Possible buys/rentals for 2005:

PS2:

Violet no Atelier: Eternal Mana

Wanda and the Colossus
Makai Kingdom
Romance of the Three Kingdoms X
Okami
Onimusha 4
Jak X

Cautiously interested:

Dragon Quest 8
Magna Carta
Urban Reign
Digital Devil Saga 2 (hopefully there will be a 1/2 bundle)

GCN (this would require me to buy a GCN):

Fire Emblem

Xbox (rental only):

PC ports (Pirates!, Half-Life 2 etc.)
Multiplatform titles (Burnout 4, PoP3 etc.)
Can't think of any exclusives.

PC (some of these would require me to buy a new PC):

F.E.A.R.
Silent Storm: Sentinels
Metalhearts
Goldenland
Night Watch
Hard to Be a God
GODS: Lands of Infinity
Hammer & Sickle
Age of Pirates
SMERSH
STALKER
UFO: Extraterrestrials
Bioshock
Space Rangers 1/2

For the PC games...many would actually have to get released and get an English language version.

Must Buys:
-MotoGP 3 (Xbox)
-Castlevania DS (DS)
-Metroid Prime Hunters (DS) - I keep forgetting about this game
-Super Mario Brothers (DS)
-Sega Hits Phantasy Star Trilogy (PS2) - Includes part 1, 2, and 4. Only $20. How could you NOT buy this?

We'll see:
-Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (Xbox version, just for 480p)
-Soul Calibur III (PS2) - This is more of a "probably" than a "we'll see".
-Full Auto (Xbox360)
-Metal Slug 4 & 5 (Xbox) - Only if they allow diagonals this time. MS3 had crap controls
-Burnout Revenge (Xbox)
-Shadow the Hedgehog (Xbox .. maybe Gamecube)
-Sonic Rush (DS)
-Nintendogs - Infected Pit Bull and Friends (DS)

Highly Unlikely:
-Zelda Twinkle Toes (Gamecube)
-Conker: Live and Reloaded (Xbox)
-Katamari Damacy 2 (PS2) - I've had enough for this lifetime

What? No love for Roller Coaster Tycoon 3's expansion pack "soaked"? That's probably the only thing I will buy. Possibly Capcom's arcade collection when it comes out. Planning pretty much on focusing on next gen stuff for a bit now, games for the pc as they pop up.

"Highly Unlikely:

Are you mad? it seems you have some sort of grudge against this game, coz every comment about this game i see coming from you is negativity. suck in your pride, get the game and be amazed

My only Must buy is........Zelda: Twilight Princess
and i didnt know Soul Calibur 3 was coming out this year, if so ill get it if it hits the GCN.
