games and ... stamps?

This is ridiculous.

Ridiculous, but brilliant. You just know everything on that site's going to sell like hotcakes.

By the way, I just realized that the WAR beta will reopen around the same time as Spore's release. If that's not malicious torture, I don't know what is.

I have two games pre-ordered at the moment: Spore and Fable 2. There's a ton of other great games coming out this fall and winter that I want, but that's all the money I have free for gaming right now. I'd consider switching my Fable 2 money to WAR so I can join my Casualties friends, but I've already downloaded the Pub Games and so feel obligated to stick with Fable 2. To be honest with myself, I'm going to have to wait on a lot of great games.

The other games on my "must have" list which are due out soon:
  • Warhammer Online
  • Dead Space
  • LOTR: Conquest
  • Fallout 3
  • Gears of War 2
  • Saints Row 2
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
  • Far Cry 2
"must haves" due out in '09 or '10, I'm guessing:
  • Diablo 3
  • Starcraft 2
  • Project Offset
  • Red Faction: Guerilla
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
And here are the games that have yet to convince me, though I'm watching them with hope:
  • Backbreaker
  • The Agency
  • Godfather 2
  • Bloodbowl
  • Goldenaxe
  • Halo Wars
  • Borderlands
  • Rise of the Argonauts
  • Saboteur
  • Left 4 Dead
  • Sacred 2
  • Tom Clancy's Endwar
I've probably missed a few games. Anyway, counting Spore and Fable 2, that's ten games ($50-60 each!) that are due out in the next four months and I'm certain I want to own. Red Alert 3 is scheduled for "Winter 2008", but that means EA's only hoping at this point. My sympathies with all of you who are feeling the same pinch.
