Even though I haven't made the purchase yet I am most excited about Bionic Commando. If the game is successful, I think we stand to see more classic games with a graphical refresh, and in some cases that is all the more the games need.

I am excited for Castle Crashers. I want a 2D beat-em-up!

I really want banjo. That $40 price point has really pushed me over the edge. It also comes with the original game.:applause::applause:

I'm most excited about A Kingdom for Keflings, from Ninja Bee. Cloning Clyde was good, so it should be fun.

Castle Crashers is what I'm looking at. Been waiting long and ready for that to pay off.

BC: Rearmed!!! Great game, I played all the demos, but this is only game I bought and beat.

Bionic Commando R-A! Some of my most vivid early gaming memories are from that game. I still vividly remember getting dragged around the sewer level by that annoying green slime, or farming bullets for health in the top-left corner of the first underground level (the only way I could beat the game).

Bionic Commando! I never got to play it on the NES, but always wanted it.

Bionic Commando Rearmed. Braid plays decent, but it needs guns.

Can't wait to play Castle Crashers!
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

I would have to say Galaga Legends, I remember the joys of that game when I was younger, I spent a good period of time at the local arcade playing the original for only a quarter while my friends waited 10 minuetes to play the latest fighter, only to lose I might add. (Just need to pick up a card first! ;))

Nothing to see here, move along!

Castle Crashers. Loved Alien Hominid, so I'm looking forward to see that kind of humor applied to a beat-'em-up.

I'd say Braid. It's both original and harkens back to the older style of adventure gaming.

I LOVE Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Braid but I think Geometry Wars 2 beat it out by just a bit.

I would have said Bionic Commando, until I played Braid and that game is so kick ass.

I'm looking forward to Castle Crashers. I'm hoping it will be a great multiplayer beat-em up in the tradition of Golden Axe and its ilk.

I've been waiting on Castle Crashers for a long time to not mention it now. It's a game worth the 1200 points to me.

Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

I'd say Braid is my favorite of the bunch. Though I suppose I see how Castle Crashers is when the demo comes out, since there's a ton of hype surrounding it but I still don't know why it's better than a regular beat-em-up.

It's so hard to pick, but Braid just edges out Geometry Wars 2 in my mind for pure originality and play experience. Castle Crashers is going to be awesome too.
