March madness on the 360
No, this topic isn't about College Hoops 2k6 which comes out this month, and it isn't about the actual NCAA tournament...but rather a thread because I'm really really happy that FINALLY XBox 360 owners are going to get a month with a bunch of high quality new game releases.
Since release, the 360 has had pretty low turn-out in games.
December: DOA4 and a couple of new live arcade games
January: the only january release...was crystal quest on live arcade. sad.
February: At least the number hopped a bit with both Full Auto and Fight Night 3
But compare those months to this March, when the 360 is finally going to see an explosion in great games:
Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (already gold)
Burnout Revenge (already gold)
College Hoops 2k6
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (already gold)
Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
Far Cry Instincts
Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires
Rumble Roses XX
not to mention the greatest XBox live arcade game...ever... Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting
PS - I'm also somewhat stoked aout Midway's recent announcement that Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Paperboy, and a handful of other classic Midway games are coming to XBox live arcade (though I really thought Paperboy was published by Atari...).
I would get College Hoops 2K6 but I already have (and love) NBA 2K6 and I think it's just a change in the names and stadiums.
