    TES IV:Oblivion (RPG) 3/20
    Timeshift (Shooter) 3/21
    Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (not same as the 360 version) (Shooter) 3/28
    (I read this one might be delayed, but I don't see any real source for it yet...just the PC version BTW in case I didn't make that clear).

    Xbox 360:
    Burnout Revenge (Racing) 3/7
    Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (Action Adventure) 3/7
    The Outfit (Action Adventure) 3/13
    Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (Action Adventure) 3/15 (Edit: Delayed to April I think) :(

    Suikoden V (RPG) 3/28
    Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires (Action Adventure) 3/28

    Gamecube:
    Naruto: Clash of Ninja (Action Adventure) 3/7
    Harvest Moon: Magical Melody (RPG) 3/28

    Xbox:

    Viewtiful Joe VFX Battle ( Fighting) 3/28

    Metal Gear Acid 2 (Strategy) 3/28

    Nintendo DS:
    Pokemon Trozei (Puzzle) 3/6
    Metroid Prime: Hunters (Shooter) DS 3/20
    Tetris (Puzzle) 3/20
    Tao's Adventure: Curse of the Demon Seal (Action Adventure) 3/21

    Multi-platform:
    Driver: Parallel Lines (Sports…huh?) 3/14 [PS2, Xbox]
    Godfather:The Game (Shooter) 3/20 [PC, XBX, PS2…360/PSP later on?]
    Major League Baseball 2K6 (Sports) 3/20 [PS2/Xbox this month, GC/360/PSP later]
    And 1 Streetball (Sports) 3/21 [PS2, Xbox]
    Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers (Action Adventure) 3/27 [PC, Xbox, PS2]
    Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (Action Adventure) 3/28 [current-gen versions on PS2, Xbox]

    Pretty strong month for the 360 and PSP, as well as the PS2 to a lesser degree.

    As with the last thread, I may have missed a few games. Let me know if there were any games that you were looking forward to and I'll put up a preview on it when I have time.

    No impressions/previews for these versions. Probably similar to the 360 or PC version, just not as pretty.



    OK, that’s the last of them.

    360 games coming into their own...looks like I may have to consider picking it up sooner rather than later.

    Metroid Hunters and Tetris. Yes. Finally a real Tetris for the first time in a while. And online as well...hells yeah.

    Oblivion. What else is there to say?

    KH2 as well. Man....looks like it's time to spend some money again.

    For those looking forward to Oblivion (hehe...that sounds funny), there was a media blowout last Friday/Saturday. So along with the preview I posted, there are tons more at IGN, 1UP, TXB, Gameinformer, and more. There are a few new videos as well. TXB has two new clips from the game that look amazing (IMO), and IGN has one of those clips (in lower-res) plus a developer interview. There's also a podcast from someone who played the game:
    http://files.filefront.com/ngrcom_podcast_02_25_06_oblivionmp3/;4805356;;/fileinfo.html
    (about 1hr 15 min long or so)

    The podcast kind of takes you step-by-step through the beginning of the game (when you pick a race, a birthsign, a class, etc.). A good thing to check out if you have the time.

    BTW, I didn't forget about the last preview thread. I'm kind of waiting for all the last reviews to get put online so that I can do one last post to finish up the thread. IIRC, several games didn't get released until today (like "24" IIRC).

    Ooooho yeah. I've been waiting for this puppy for months... I hope the hype is worth it.

    On another note, D&D Online was released today. I'm debating getting that.... but with ES4 being released possibly in 3 weeks or so, I dunno... no way I can play both at the same time.
