    As you probably haven't noticed (you miserable bastards), I'm not here this week. Rather, I've elected to spend the week at home with my family, doing half-term things and painting window ledges. NOW you're jealous, right? Anyway, I was online tonight doing bank things and thought how nice it would be to pop along and see what you've all been up to. Not much, apparently. So I thought I'd do What's New a bit early instead rather than watch Miss Marple.

    Anyway, Tomb Raider Anniversary is the obvious buy this week, although there is Shadowrun if you really like that kind of thing. Nice to see a bit of proper competition for Pippa Funnell too, with (hopefully) bitter rival Lucinda Green flipping the bird at her via her own horse-worrying title. And watch out for that Shield game. Not because it's good, but because it causes cancer.

    PLAYSTATION 3
    None this week

    XBOX 360
    Shadowrun

    WII

    Next Week:
    I'll be back. And so will Forza 2 for the 360, Halo 2 for the PC (sans-nudity, no doubt), Mercury Meltdown Revolution for the Wii (a likely story) and Impossible bloody Mission for DS and PSP, of all things. As you were.

    If someone could bump this for me on Friday that'd be very nice indeed.

    Didn't you notice a lack of Wii trolling?

    Not a lack, no; just inferior quality :)

    I almost got a go on a Wii the other day, but it was switched off to prevent pikeys from playing on it all day during half term. We had to play Motorstorm again instead. ^_^

    2 Microsoft published titles in two weeks on the 360!

    Doesn't say a lot for either their confidence in shadowrun or forza 2, and I'm guessing which one they aren't confident in...

    /Should have released shadowrun a bit earlier though, its running right into halo 3 beta and forza 2.

    Any later than this and it would be pummeled by the darkness then a stream of quality titles. Any earlier and it might not have been ready I guess.

    A rival appeared a couple of months ago, I was dead excited.

    Here

    She's also much fitter than Pippa, which is a bonus.

    Amazon.de claims to have shipped my copy of Mercury Meltdown Revolution yesterday.

    EDIT: And there it is. It's definitely out in Germany. :)

    This should be avoided like the plague. Fantastic presentation, but the gameplay is absoloutely laughable. I wish they'd stuck with the 2D style that made the first two Smash Court games such a joy.

    Can I vote for XBox Live additions to be featured on "What's new?" ... I'm actually much more likely to play demos etc than buy new games.

    Speaking of which, I should go off and post my fascinating observations of the DiRT and Halo3 MP demos in the respective threads (without bothering to read if anyone has posted something similar before of course)

    I don't bother with XBLA much, its generally a constant dissapointment.
