Next new game I'm playing is likely Infamous 2, coming out in June.

Don't know what I'll get this year besides that and Uncharted 3.

Must-haves: Elder Scrolls V, Deus Ex, Gears 3, Battlefield 3, Portal 2, Mass Effect 3
Watch-list: Bioshock infinte, Rage, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Armored Core 5, Crysis 2

For PC:
Must-haves: Diablo 3
Watch-list: Guild Wars 2, Torchlight 2

I need to get my 360 fixed. Might buy a PS3 in a month or so. I've threatened my wife with Diablo 3.

For PC:

For me the Battlefield 3 and Portal 2 would move from the Must-Haves to the watch-list. The only addition to the 360 must-haves I would add would probably be Arkham City (I will certainly get the next version of madden but probably wouldn't consider it a "must-have").

Add to the watch list: LA Noire, Dead Island, LOTR: War of the North, and Dungeon Siege 3.

Would add Star Wars old republic to the PC Must-have...assuming it is released this year which it is expected to.

They released a trailer for it a little while ago that got a lot of hype. Kind of a dead rising zombie type thing on a tropical resort. Probably unlikely to get it unless it gets really good reviews but will keep it on the watch list.

How do most of you purchase your Xbox Live membership?

I just got one from Newegg for 39.99 with free shipping. Since M$ wanted 59.99 last time I checked online, I think this was a good deal. Please tell me I'm right.

I usually forget about it and it auto-renews at whatever the price is ($59.99 right now I guess). Sounds like a good deal to me

I follow Cheap a$$ gamer and hit the buy button when the price is 39 or less.

After following the trend for about two years, 39 is a good price.

Also, the new DLC for AC:B comes out today, finally fixing a bunch of issues from the old DLCs. It also adds some single player missions as well as 4 new multiplayer characters, one new map, and two new game modes. Did I mention that I'm ranked #26 in the world on PS3 in the Free For All game modes?
I bought the dlc via my phone, but haven't even turned on my xbox to download it yet.
had a platelet donation last night, so I should get to it tonight hopefully

I'm going to have to replay some of the original game because now there is an achievement for 100% synch in the original game and the dlc
