I'm bored...so, I'm going to take a look at some of the games I think folks will want to keep an eye out for as publishers make their holiday push: C.O.P.: The Recruit Release: Nov. 3 Ubisoft / Action-Adventure What many folks (I don't include myself amongst them, however) had hoped Chinatown Wars would have been, a 3D, open-world thing. I'm not getting my hopes up too much for this the game -- it's produced by Ubisoft after all -- but it's obviously one worth checking out for fans of GTA-style gameplay. The cityscapes look a bit barren to me, but it could still be fun. _______ Rabbids Go Home Release: Nov. 3 Ubisoft / Adventure Another Ubi publication, and though the Rabbids haven't done much to speak of on DS thus far, I always hold out hope for those crazy critters. This one looks like it could be a mix of one of those Rube Goldberg puzzle games and adventure. Who knows... _______ Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron Release: Nov. 3 LucasArts / Action Personally, I think we've seen enough Star Wars related "stuff" to last several lifetimes, but hey, it's Battlefront...on the DS. I'll give it a go -- no doubt about that. _______ WireWay Release: Nov. 3 Konami / Action Konami, in my opinion, don't have a much better track record on DS than Ubisoft, but this game looks like it could be a lot of fun. I've really gotten into the recently released Go! Go! Cosmo Cops! (still playing it), and this seems to draw upon similar inspiration. I'll be looking forward to this one, too, when it releases. _______ Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans Release: Nov. 10 Namco / RPG I believe the Japanese version of this game has been out since April, but for most of us, this will be the first opportunity to partake. I'm not the biggest DBZ fan (I prefer the regular Dragonball, and even then, I'm not that into it), but I likes me some RPGs, and the whole Dragonball thing is growing on me. _______ Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Mobilized Release: Nov. 10 Activision / FPS The first one was decent, World at War was better, and another good shooter is always welcome on DS, as far as I'm concerned. My gut tells me it won't be great, but when the pickings are slim (and you're a pirate), you gladly take what you can get. Am I right? _______ Phantasy Star 0 Release: Nov. 10 SEGA / RPG Again, already out in Japanese, but English-speaking folks will finally get a stab at it this holiday. I played some of the J version and dug it, so I look forward to being able to tackle the game fully when it releases for the States. _______ TMNT: Arcade Attack Release: Nov. 11 Ubisoft / Action This one's pretty iffy, especially after Reshelled, but it's nice to see a new TMNT brawler come to life. Folks are already squawking about it being in 3D, but I like the look of it. Will Ubisoft mold it into an enjoyable game? _______ Honorable mentions include: LEGO Indy 2 and Need for Speed: Nitro. But that's gonna do it for this list. December doesn't actually hold much interest, which seems to make sense, considering folks will be doing the bulk of their holiday shopping in November. I think we'll have plenty to tide us over, though, on DS alone. And considering September and October, I think it's fair to say that any threads related to "Is the DS dead" are mere troll fodder. Also, this is, by no means, a comprehensive list, and in the interest of discussion, please feel free to post your own additions you think people should watch out for.
