@the9thinning: It would make sense if they wait with the game of the year until the year is over. While the chances that something amazing will come up near the end of December are next to none, I still think handing out GOTY's before the year is over is weird.
I want a 3DS. I played Mario 3D at Gamestop while waiting for some take home and it was awesome. Now with this, tales of the abyss, cave story, f1 2011 and the price drop I'm definitely getting one. As for Final Fantasy, I'm lucky enough to have played through FFIII when it was new and I still own the system and cartridge, along with Chrono Trigger. Now if only I had Secret of Mana and Gemfire....
@tom_cat_01 it was only released in eu and jpn on psn and wii shop until this year. ff5 and 6 are both being released on the psn with one of the chrono games. they were already released on the wii shop earlier this year. likely due to se having to work nintendo for the license to release the original versions on psn. shame they couldn't of chosen the enhanced ports instead as i hear they are much better. though since these games are so cheap i'll probably pick them up instead of trying to find the ports as they are obviously more expensive.
@the9thinning i know seems like they aren't doing them this year otherwise they would of announced it. probably due to them doing work on the site.
This sucks, Games spot's player never seems to work for me anymore unless its embbed in a page. In term of this week, December is almost always a Breather month in Q4 after the insanity of October and November as it allows people who didn't get the game opening week to get them now. For this week specifically, Mario Kart 7 is far and beyond the biggest release, everything else is low profile. Also didn't Just Dance 3 come out in October?
I'm waiting patiently for a 3D remake of FFVI. Maybe it'll arrive in time for the game's 20th anniversary.
When will the best of 2011 awards come in? in the past, it started in November. The year is almost over.
@emirblade Lautrec is actually only $30 already. I have it preordered, so I'm pumped at the low price.
You're thinking of Rin Tin Tin, Tin-Tin is an old comic from the forties that's having a movie released soon
