So this here post marks several firsts - it's the first one I've done at this location, and - more to the point - it's the first one that covers every console, not just the Xbox.
As we're in the spring/summer lull, it's doubtful that there's going to be much here. I can already pretty much guarantee, though, that any multi-platform release listed here will be for the 360, unless there is some sort of jaw-dropping, mind-expanding reason not to; as I've said a million times, the 360 is my platform of choice because that's where all my friends are, and because I am an Achievement Whore.
This calendar will not include every title; just the ones I'm keeping my eye on. I'm using the Gamespot calendar, for what it's worth.
Bold indicates titles I'm already planning on buying.
Italics means titles I'm curious about and will probably rent, at the very least.
Vanilla means titles that have caught my eye, but I haven't taken any action on yet.
