on xbox.com forums,there is a thread on there where they are saying Beyond Good and Evil has been delayed,some are saying until March 9th(which is meant to be Torchlight week)and someone else is saying that on the marketplace it now says 16th March..not sure how true it all is

I hope its BS,because i am really looking forward to playing the game again...and Major Nelson(the git)has had it on his gamercard for over a month

EDIT:on dashboard click on the houseparty tile from Game Marketplace 'row'(don't actually go into game marketplace),and B,G and E says March 9th...bastard!!

I'm trying something different for a less clutterful experience.  But know that there's a new Bit.Trip game this week.

Spoiler for Nintendo Weekly Update:
WiiWare
BIT.TRIP FLUX
Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Points
Quote
The BIT.TRIP series comes full circle with BIT.TRIP FLUX, CommanderVideo's final adventure. Grab your Wii Remote controller and get ready for classic paddle-based game play as CommanderVideo returns to the source. Whether playing in single-player or in cooperative two-player mode, you'll be faced with new challenges that will make even the most experienced BIT.TRIPPERS weep. Enjoy new power-ups (including the Fullscreen Paddle), new beat types (including Avoid Beats) and the new Meta Mode. Ride along with CommanderVideo as he completes his mission and returns home.
Gods vs Humans (demo version)
Publisher: ZALLAG
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief, Cartoon Violence
Price: 0 Wii Points; full version available for 1,200 Wii Points
Quote
Embody major gods from Scandinavian, Egyptian, Roman and Japanese mythologies. As a god, you have enough power to rule the humans – all but the cheeky ones. Some of them want to enter your domain and have decided to build a tower to confront you. Use your divine powers to bring them down and show them who's boss. Be careful not to hurt them though – you need people to believe in you. The game includes 60 levels for the solo campaign, 16 playable gods with specific powers, four hysterical bosses to defeat and 16 additional challenges for experienced players.
Pong Toss Pro – Frat Party Games (demo version)
Publisher: JV Games Inc.
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Alcohol Reference, Comic Mischief, Mild Language
Price: 0 Wii Points; full version available for 600 Wii Points
Quote
Born on college campuses, Pong Toss is the ultimate party-game favorite. Now Pong Toss Pro takes it to the next level with improved graphics and a redesigned throwing system for complete accuracy. Also new to Pong Toss Pro is a Tournament Mode that supports four-, eight- or 16-team bracket play. Pong Toss Pro features six regulation tables and the ability to modify simple house rules. Rock it with a high-energy soundtrack and listen to the announcer commenting on your play. Rule the table with Fireball bonuses for consecutive shots. In Speed Pong, up to three challengers can compete at the same time. Speed and strategy are key in this fast-paced game. Jack up your opponents by using a slew of power-ups that will slow them down. The first player to sink the last cup wins it all.
Note: Some demo versions do not support all game features, and players cannot save their in-game progress in demo versions.

Nintendo DSiWare
My Little Restaurant
Publisher: QubicGames
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Welcome to My Little Restaurant. Get in here and turn this place from a small diner into a crowded eating palace. Help Mikey and Annie seat the guests, collect orders, deliver meals and earn money. Every once in a while, jump into the kitchen and prepare some tasty burgers or perfect sushi. You won't find a better deal at any other place. The game features five restaurant themes: American Diner, Japanese Bar, Ancient Palace, Picnic Fun and Space Lunchroom, plus two extra cooking games: Burgers for the Chef and Sushi Master Challenge. Enjoy 33 unique levels and discover extra features and power-ups.
Magnetic Joe
Publisher: Subdued Software
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Take control of Magnetic Joe, everyone's favorite little magnetic sphere. Guide him through 100 exciting mazes filled with spikes, enemies and other obstacles. Help Joe as he pursues his nemesis, Dr. Magnevil, who's on his way to conquer the world. The mazes are full of magnets that push and pull Joe in different directions. Your task is to skillfully use their magnetic force to get Joe to the exit unharmed. Use the magnetic force carefully – the levels are filled with surprises, and a boss could be lurking.
Monster Buster Club
Publisher: Nordcurrent
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief, Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Earth is about to be invaded by evil aliens, and their first stop is Singletown. As long as they're around to save the day, the members of the Monster Buster Club refuse to let this happen. Join Cathy, Danny, Sam and Chris on an exciting adventure based on the hit animated TV series Monster Buster Club and stop these troublemakers from taking over. As you search for the villainous Nosidda, you and the MBC team will battle aliens outside the school, race your car through the streets of Singletown, solve puzzles, engage in air battles and even visit outer space. The game features a highly interactive world with exciting game play that challenges your speed, timing and puzzle-solving abilities. Discover a wide variety of puzzles and challenges to overcome using the Nintendo DSi stylus. Play as any of four MBC characters: Cathy, Danny, Chris or Sam.

I bought Rift over the weekend.  Will get Retribution one day when I finish the first two Dawn of War 2 games, which will probably be never since all I can ever seem to play are MMOs.  Will also probably get Beyond Good and Evil HD one day as well.
