Looks like nothing for me, which is lucky, since I don't have any money.

Crush for me, the game looks really different and it's gotten positive reviews so far.

Curse of the Golden Flower has been out for a while on DVD, that's probably just the Blu-Ray release.

Anyway, don't bother with it, even if you're a fan of the genre. Not that it's god awful or anything, it just tries to do what Hero does, and doesn't do it as well.

Crush could be fun. And it looks like Mad Tracks will be this week's XBLA game (and maybe another one as well, if things continue the way they've been). Rumor has it Ikaruga will join it, which would be quite a pleasant surprise.

Whole lotta nothin' for me. Unless I hear absolutely amazing things about Shadowrun, I'm not interested. Atelier Iris 3 would be tempting if I hadn't just picked up Odin Sphere and Etrian Odyssey last week.

I'm actually interested in seeing Knocked Up, as it would be a fun date movie to see with my recently pregnant wife.

I'm going to be picking up Mario Party on tuesday. It's about high time I got a real party game for my Wii and me and my friends haven't played a mario party since 3 or 4 so it should be good fun.

Forza! At last!

I wonder if they've done anything to fix the camera and awkward controls for Monster Madness. The game looked promising but the demo killed it for me.

That's a joke, right? The game designed to be played half drunk with friends, online?

Yeah, I'm looking forward to it.

One word. One number. Put together they signify the second coming of racing games - Forza 2. To all you disbelievers, see y'all online.

I'm slightly surprised to see that Surf's Up is being released on the Gamecube. I can understand the PS2, what with the huge install base.

The week I've been waiting for..the release of Forza 2. Many nights of different drinks mixed with a lot of vodka = good times. My drunkeness should contribute to some great paint jobs.

I was interested in Shadowrun earlier, but after learning that it would be $60 for a game that essentially is online-only, my enthusiasm evaporated. I might pick it up if it's cheap on sale somewhere depending on the reviews.

The lack of a pre-release Shadowrun demo seems none to bright considering how much eHate the game has born the brunt of during its development. I want to give it a shot, but not to the tune of $60, so it'll be a rental at best.

Hunh, I didn't really have any issues with the camera/controls in that game. I really enjoyed the demo. Depending on the price, I may pick that one up.

I've decided Forza 2 isn't for me. I'm more of an arcade racing fan. Shadowrun is too expensive right now and I'm waiting on reviews on Mario Party 8 to see if it's just another party game or something special for the Wii. I've decided to expand my dvd collection this week though :



Star Trek TOS Season 2. Now I only need season 3 to complete my set.
