The end of a hugely packed Q1

 As most of you are aware of, Q1 2010 has been…very, very packed to say the least. There’s quite a few titles that I purchased this quarter of the year and three more I need to get in March alone! Some of these weren’t released in this time frame, but I’ll add them anyway so you have an idea of how much I bought. These games are:
 
- Bayonetta
- Final Fantasy XIII
- Infinite Space
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
- The Metroid Prime Trilogy
- Muramasa: The Demon Blade
- Resonance of Fate
- Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
- Super Mario Galaxy

 As you can see, that’s quite A LOT of games for only a span of three months. 2010 is quite an amazing year for video games for all kinds of gamers. My taste is pretty rigid and picky compared to other people. I’m sure other gamers have a much larger than list than I.

 Now, the rest of 2010? There is quite a lot of games releasing that I at least want to play. With my recent purchase of a Nintendo Wii opens up possibilities for impulse buys when I see a great game for a great price like MadWorld for $9.99 at some stores. Anyway, what does the rest of 2010 have in store for me? Well lets see…

Nintendo DS
- Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
- Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie
- Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2*
- Etrian Odyssey 3*
- Final Fantasy Gaiden: 4 Warriors of Light
- Golden Sun DS
- Inazuma Eleven
- Ninokuni: Another World

Nintendo Wii
- Arc Rise Fantasia*
- Epic Mickey*
- The Last Story
- The Legend of Zelda: Wii (Working Title)
- Metroid: Other M
- Sin and Punishment: Star Successor
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Tales of Graces
- Xenoblade
- Zengeki no Reginleiv*

Xbox 360
- Alan Wake*
- Mafia 2*
- Super Street Fighter IV
- Vanquish
 
* - Want to play, will buy if I like it enough
Normal - Must-buy 
  
So, that's my list for the rest of the year. What did you guys buy in Q1 and what are you planning to purchase for the rest of the year?

@nintendoeats: I'm not sure if I want a PS3 just yet. There's a few games I'm interested in like Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles, and Uncharted 2. Honestly, I don't think I would enjoy Heavy Rain as much as other people.

Your making me a sad panda here...
 
Actually, I would say that Heavy Rain, MGS IV and Valkyria Chronicles constitute a good enough reason to get a PS3. As far as HEavy Rain goes, you pretty much have to play it before you can judge it. There isn't really any to compare it too. Except maybe INdigo Prophecy, but its way better than that game so there you are.

I looooooooooooooved demon souls for the first 6-7 hours I played it, then I just couldn't do it any more..... maybe ill bust it out again with a walk through, haha

Most immediately I'm really hoping i can find some place with an English copy of the PS3 version of FF13.  Most of the game vendors here, in Korea, are only stocking the Japanese version euch.  
 
Other than that i'm really not paying attention to what's coming out just trying to take it a little at a time. 
 
Splinter Cell sounds alright.
