    I'm most looking forward to Zelda. Three days before my birthday. Although I cynically expect Zelda to get pushed back to being a Christmas title!

  2. MaxGrefkens Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 08:14

    2 Games: Zelda Skyward Sword and Kirby's Adventure Wii.

    Skyward sword, definitely. I haven't played a Kirby game before, so I'll probably consider that.

    Yay! zeldas 3 days after my bday

    It's on my birthday. Shame it's not my 25th birthday though I'll be 26.

    Does anyone else agree that the 3DS line-up is not as good as the Wii and DS line-up? Doesn't matter too much though because I will be busy with the 21 free games that are coming my way and I can still play the DS games on it.

    2 Games: Zelda Skyward Sword and Kirby's Adventure Wii.

    Same here, do you know where I could pre-order Kirby's Adventure Wii, I can't find it in the usual places?

    It's actually 20 free games.

  18. noobgamer9 Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 15:01

    By far Skyward Sword, but also Modern Warfare 3 (anybody know what Q4 means?)
    And hi, I'm new.

  19. kirby711 Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 15:18

    Kirby's Adventure Wii is the new title... Sounds better than Kirby Returns to Dreamland.

  20. Joey788 Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 16:33

    No Mario Party 9 or Fortune Street :(

  21. Android18a Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 17:14

    Most wanted: The Last Story
    Second most: Zelda: Skyward Sword

  22. Cyberguy Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 19:48

    Kirby Wii and Skyward Sword! That's all I need.

    I think they're counting four swords as well as the 20 ambassador games.

    X-Men Destiny, I saw footage for that during E3 and it looked ace. Particularly the way you can choose your abilities and actions that change the story.

    Putting the new Zelda to one side, I am super excited to The Last Story and Pandora's Tower. Whether or not I will be able to afford them on release is another question... But I will always make money for Zelda. (:
