    It's almost all over for another year, but in the meantime we've got yet another week of equal-measure "big hitters" and "stinky shitters", with the DS yet again taking the brunt of the nose-turning whiff. This week also appears to be the unofficial "week of the subtitle". There won't be enough hyphens and colons to go around next week.


    PLAYSTATION 3
    Beowulf
    Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of Rock
    Kane and Lynch - Dead Men
    Lair
    NBA 2K8
    Need For Speed - Prostreet

    XBOX 360
    Ace Combat 6 - Fires of Liberation
    Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of Rock
    Kane and Lynch - Dead Men
    Mass Effect
    Need For Speed - Prostreet
    Rainbow 6 Vegas (Xbox 360 Classics)
    The Elder Scrolls Oblivion - Shivering Isles Expansion Pack

    WII
    Dewys Adventure
    Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of Rock
    Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games
    Need For Speed - Prostreet
    My Horse and Me
    Smartypants

    PLAYSTATION 2
    Cars Mater-national
    Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of Rock
    Jackass - The Game
    NBA 2K8
    Need For Speed - Prostreet

    Company of Heroes - Gold Pack
    Company of Heroes - GOTY Edition
    Kane and Lynch - Dead Men
    My Horse and Me
    Need For Speed - Prostreet
    Painkiller Overdose
    Supreme Commander - Forged Alliance Expansion Pack
    Supreme Commander - Gold Edition
    Unreal Tournament III

    DS
    Boulderdash Rocks
    Cars Mater-national
    Mario Party
    My French Coach
    My Horse and Me
    My Spanish Coach
    Need For Speed - Prostreet
    Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots
    Sight Training
    Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys
    Warhammer 40000 - Squad Command (providing you're German)

    PSP
    Crash of the Titans
    Jackass - The Game
    Warhammer 40000 - Squad Command


    Next Week:
    It's the end of the month and therefore the release date schedule is terribly, terribly muddy. But through the crystal ball filth I can just about make out Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Blacksite and a bundle of Golden Compass tie-in shovelware games. Everything else appears to be either wishful thinking or 'stuck at the end of November because we've no idea when it will actually arrive'. Hopefully the picture will be a bit more clear by this time next week.

    How does the shivering isles work?

    Presumably it needs oblivion to play but if it's on a disc I can't see how that would work...do you install it onto the hard drive ala the downloadable version?

    The only way I can think of it working is that you install to HDD and when you play you insert the SI disc first then swap to the Oblivion disc.

    Hm, yeah. Maybe we have a case of "UK getting it after Germany", but amazon.de has it for the 23rd. A few others out on the same day are:

    Mega Man Star Force

    Flash Focus (I think, it's "Eye Training" here) (EDIT: link fixed)

    Warhammer 40k

    Amazon.de is very reliable concerning release dates, so I'm inclined to trust them this time as well. But like I said, we sometimes get games sooner in Germany. Probably later sometimes, too, but I haven't noticed, yet. :)

    I still haven't had chance to unwrap SMG from last week, I'm thinking it's going to be good ;)

    Time taken up with Endless Ocean and COD4 this week. All 2 hours of it :(

    Is that a comment on ME's v-sync issues?

    Such things bother me not. I'm always surprised at how much people seem to give a shit.

    So, another Christmas casualty then?

    This should have been out in the summer, or delayed to february. Shame it'll die a horrible death in the seasonal rush of releases.

    I don't see HAZE on the list, Blerk, and I'm blaming you.

    But still... Mass Effect!

    Yes. HAZE being delayed to next year was actually my fault. Sorry about that. But if they will leave their bottles of gin on top of the source control server then what do they expect?
