What will you buy at launch?

Recommended Posts

I know it's not announced yet: date, price, and what games will be available, but from what games we do know about that are likely to be available some time at launch or slightly after, what 2 or 3 games will people buy? I'm guessing most people will pick up 2 games?

 

It will definitely be an interesting choice. My first is a given - that would have to be Legend of Zelda.

 

I'll have a harder time deciding on my 2nd game, possibly an RPG from Square Enix, Final Fantasy Chrystal Chronicles or Dragon Quest.

 

But then I'm really excited about Red Steel and Metroid Prime Corruption as well.

 

Then Super Mario Galaxy will probably launch within 2 months as well.

 

Things look amazingly good especially with Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the horizon too.

Depends on the launch games..

 

But I'll buy everything made by nitendo

 

Red steel if it gets 7+ in score.

FFCC

Trauma center

Madden

 

I'm probably getting nearly all the games.

... It's to early to tell really.. I need an official list to go after.

I'm glad someone made this topic, as I was going to do it the other day.

 

Anyway, here is the list of launch titles that Owen posted in another thread. Seems pretty close I would say.

 

Well there not all 100% confirmed but it's 95% certain:

 

Wario Ware: Smooth Moves

Legend Of Zelda: The Twilight Princess

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Red Steel

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

Tony Hawks: Downhill Jam

Rayman

Trauma Centre: Second Opinion

ExciteTruck

Wii: Sports (if it's not put in free with consoles)

Project H.A.M.M.E.R

 

 

For me, my launch games will be Zelda, Excite Truck (looked wicked after seeing E3 vids), Wario Ware, and Wii Sports. And if Red Steel receives some decent reviews and opinions then I'll also try and buy that.

 

There are too many decent launch games there though. I would still want Metroid, Monkey Ball and Trauma Centre aswell. Oh well.

 

 

Edit - And Crystal Chronicles has no chance of being a launch title btw.

Twilight Princess and Metroid Prime 3 will probably do me until Christmas, when I'll probably get Super Monkey Ball and Red Steel. If I had an official list, I'd probably list a few more.

 

Red Steel has online multiplayer, right? There needs to be at least one online game at launch =/.

Twilight Princess for sure, and then depending on reviews, Red Steel and Rayman.

I think I'll limit myself to 2 games so as not to overload. Probably Zelda and Wario. Zelda is a must unless it's on GC earlier. Red Steel to follow soon after if it's any good. Gotta love sword fighting.

Only likely to be able to afford a couple of games on the day, so (going by above launch list)-

On the day -

Zelda

Wii Sports

Madden (if I can aford 3!)

 

Will certainly get -

Wario Ware

Crystal Chronicles

Metroid Prime 3 (Just as soon as I finish Echoes!)

Mario Galaxy

Excite truck

 

Will also consider-

Red Steel

Monkey ball - Banana Blitz

Dragon Quest

Trauma Centre

Elebits

Rayman

Project H.A.M.M.E.R.

Wii Music

Metal Slug

 

 

And yes, this must surely be the best line-up ever! I'm also assuming that everyone will get Smash Bros when it gets here.

Its so hard to make up my horror filled mind.

I will get Legend of Zelda and Metroid Prime 3. I will also consider getting Metal Slug Anthology (SNK kicks @ss) and Excite Truck. This might change when the time comes. This is like choosing between Led Zeppelin and The Dead Kennedys, their all good.

I'm really not too sure yet.....I think I'll probably be getting Zelda on the GC...

 

So that leaves Metroid prime 3 and possibly Red Steel.

That launch line up looks alright, though I'm not really interested in most of those titles at all.

 

Metroid Prime 3 is the only one that I'm really interested in. How many of those games have online play anyway? =/

Which ever gets the best review pre-launch by Meta Critic. (except Wii sports, I know everyone will love it for novelty value but for me it's got no replay value)
