They are publishing Freedom Fighters 2, and Tomb Raider 7 looks like it might actually be good. I thought Thief: Deadly Shadows was pretty good. Hitman: Contracts really, really, really sucked. The original Freedom Fighters is one of my favorite 100 games of all-time. Don't forget about Shellshock: Nam '67. The rest of their upcoming line-up sucks or I don't care about it.

Contracts did NOT suck. It WAS short, and there was a couple of major flaws. But overall it was fun for me, a major Hitman fan. It was like an expansion, just with some major ass flaws...ok maybe it did suck...just a little though.

Have you ever played the original Hitman, it's basically the same thing as Contracts.

Well Eidos makes or publishs The Legacy of Kain series, so thats a big one. Well for me it is at least. I still think Nintendo should have tried to get at least some of Eidos though, since then they could make the games exclusive to their system or at least get them to appear on it. Although since it is Ubi Soft thats buying it there can still be a better chance that it will happen anyway. Hopefully it won't be ports though. I mean if you port a game to the GC 6 months after it came out on other systems what do you expect but bad sales?
