    A reasonably busy week again, and some fairly hefty hitters too - Half Life, Zelda, Football Manager, Eternal Sonata (well, I can dream, can't I?). Mix into that some middling stuff, some stupidly cross-platform stuff and some 'even the kids would pull faces if you bought them this' stuff and you can certainly tell that the goose is getting fat. Unless you bought a cheaper PS3 last week, in which case you're stuffed.


    PLAYSTATION 3
    None this week

    XBOX 360
    Eternal Sonata
    Half-Life 2: The Orange Box
    Thrillville: Off the Rails

    WII
    Carnival - Funfair Games
    Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis
    Thrillville: Off the Rails

    PLAYSTATION 2
    Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz
    Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2
    SingStar Bollywood
    Thrillville: Off the Rails
    WWII - Battle Over Europe

    PC GAMES
    Football Manager 2008
    Half-Life 2: The Orange Box
    Thrillville: Off the Rails
    World of Warcraft - Battlechest

    DS
    Cocoto Racers
    Disney Friends
    High School Musical
    Luminous Arc
    The Legend of Zelda - Phantom Hourglass
    Thrillville: Off the Rails

    PSP
    Juiced 2 - Hot Import Nights
    Thrillville: Off the Rails


    Next Week:
    The biggies (or at least the hyped-ies) continue! Pro Evo 2008 for most platforms, Metroid Prime 3 for the Wii, Eye of Judgement for the PS3, and Virtua Fighter 5 and Tomb Raider Anniversary finally make it to the 360 (and MAYBE the PSP too for the latter). Plus Jericho, The Witcher, and a load of other guff. Now if only we could convince the bloody postie to actually deliver any of it.

    Orange Box on 360 for me this week.
    I also have Touch Detective 2 (DS) coming from VG+. If that dosent arrive in time I can see myself going for Luminous Arc to fill the gap.

    Eternal Sonata and TOB for me.

    You'd have thought Sony would have had something decent ready for the big price cut/new launch but nothing?

    Mental.

    Phantom Hourglass as well, forgot about that.

    Zelda??

    I didn't think that was out until next year for some reason.

    Finally, I get to buy a new game! (I'll need to clean the dust from my DS now)

    Luminous Arc, eh? That's a stealthy release. It's not even on itamae's list. Not that I'd pay full price for it, anyway.

    My Zelda should be arriving any day now. I look forward to being extremely critical about it very soon.

    Yes. Wouldn't get your hopes up for next week either, though.

    I've had Dead Head Fred on order with Amazon for over a year at 2.97. It was originally scheduled for release about a year ago, and has been pushed back again and again.

    My Zelda still hasn't arrived from VG+ thanks to the fucking post strike. Grr.

    Mine arrived yesterday - if it wasn't for the fact it was way cheaper than the UK one, there was almost no point going for the US version, given that it took 2 1/2 weeks to get here!

    That's a very odd way of spelling PC you've got there.

    I played Half-Life 2 and Episode 1 last weekend on a PC, from start to finish, and I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that I hate keyboards and extremely expensive hardware.

    Thrillville? For Ds?
    The short dev time bodes ill for the quality of the title... :(
  • Deleted user 19 October 2007 10:21:37
    I'm sure that keyboards and extremely expensive hardware aren't big fans of you either.

    I thought you have a Wii? In relation to the specs, that's the most expensive hardware I own.

    ;)
