    Here we are at the end of another month, and it's another busy week. There are even some big names in there, if you can spot them among the "taking advantage of Grandma doing a bit of early Consumermas shopping for the nippers" shovelware. As always with 'end of the month', some or all of these titles may end up slipping into next month, especially if they happen to be called "Dead Head Fred". Your statutory rights will be affected.

    My pick this week would be Tomb Raider: Anniversary for the 360/PSP. It's super, 'til the end. Where it becomes irritatingly not-quite-so-super-maybe-we-ran-out-of-time. And it's cheap. Bonus.

    Tomb Raider Anniversary? At last! Or has it been bashed to fuck in reviews?

    I've been looking forward to this for about six months.

    I am making anyone who's not buying The Witcher personally responsible for the demise of gaming. Having no PC is no excuse.

    Which game did you proclaim that for the other day, but for the death of FPSs?


    if no one buys Alan Hansens Sports Challenge, you are personally responsible for the death of novelty tie in pub games.

    Tomb Raider PSP isn't going to be a lot of fun with just one analogue stick, is it?

    I might get PES when it's available on budget, but apart from that, there's nothing else I'd want on any of the platforms this week.

    Tomb Raider came out when the Playstation didn't have analogue sticks anyway.

    Hellgate: London and Tabula Rasa for the PC (providing TR doesn't slip again),

    I saw TR in the shops earlier today here in Allemagne, special and normal editions - is it not out in the UK today as well? Anyway, slippage seems unlikely.

    Oh GOD why did they schedule Cheggers Party Quiz this weekend? I'll never get round to Pro Evo 2008.

    Bizarre. GAME/Gameplay don't seem to be stocking it for some reason. It's also out on PC and PS3 tomorrow.

    Christ. I'm going to have nightmares about that box art now...

    I think you should put a disclaimer on that link which says:

    Pretty crap week for me then.

    Hopefully one of my local shops will have imported Megaman ZX Advent and Pheonix Wright 3, otherwise I'll be buying sod all this week.

    EDIT: Hmm, could always get VF5, but........ ehhhhh, I don't actually play those games much anyway
  • Deleted user 25 October 2007 13:45:09
    Pro Evo and Tomb Raider next week wneh I get paid.

    Maybe VF5 if I can find it cheap enough.

    Jericho and Tomb Raider for me.

    I picked up Tomb Raider earlier in the year for the PS2, which was a mistake and I soon got pissed off with the fecking controller so it got quickly traded in. Great game though and now with some graphic polish, achievements and a pad I can enjoy playing with its a definite buy.

    I loved the Jericho demo, nothing much new but a nice atmospheric game which is truely challenging with some nice graphical touches.

    I think Skate and Halo have had as much of my time as I am willing to devote to either of them.
