I bought Dragon Age II back in January (at 25% off), does that count?

I'm not sure why Kane & Lynch 2 is on the 360 list.

I'm holding off on dragon Age II, as I haven't finished the first one.  BTW, the very slick hardcover collector's edition strategy guide is on sale for $21.49 at Amazon.

damn, that is nice looking.  I'm tempted, but I have only bought 2 strategy guides in like forever (DA:O and Fallout: New Vegas) and neither one got much use.  heck, I forgot all about the DA:O one until you mentioned the DAII one.

Destructor sees PS2 games coming out this week but omits them from the list because he can't imagine anyone still wanting them.  Against all odds someone wants one but doesn't see it on the list.  Hilarity ensues.  Much rejoicing.

Dragon Age 2 for me, assuming I can plow through the ending of the first one (just finished the Landsmeet).

I may also be getting Yoostar 2.  The first one got good reviews, but didn't sell because of expensive peripherals (camera, green screen, etc).  Now it looks like all you'll need is Kinect or the Eye and you're good to go.  I'm hoping for a review first, though.

Oh, and Torchlight.

I'm interested in Dragon Age 2, but not feeling the need to make it a day one purchase.  I have two or three other games that I'd like to wrap up first, so I'll get around to it eventually.

Isn't Vagrant Story hitting PSN this week?  If so, I'll grab that.

Original platform: Nintendo 64
Publisher: Hudson Entertainment
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Violence
Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Quote
Bomberman returns in his own full-on action game. One day, out of nowhere, a spaceship crash-lands on Planet Bomber. Journeying to the Peace Mountains to investigate, Bomberman encounters Pibot, the dazed robot pilot. According to Pibot, the evil Garaden Empire attacked Primus Star and kidnapped Princess Millian from Pibot’s escape ship. Hearing this, Bomberman vows to save the princess, even if he has to travel the length of the galaxy to do it. Bomberman is equipped with an infinite supply of bombs and can count on a variety of upgrades to aid him in his quest. His search for the princess takes him to five exciting planets, reuniting him with his old friend Louie and uncovering new items.

Nintendo DSiWare

This is a new type of action game that will have you swinging and jumping from bar to bar, just like the parallel bars in gymnastics. The controls are simple. Grab onto a bar, add momentum to your swing by pressing left or right on the +Control Pad, then jump and spin to the next bar by pressing the A Button. Gauge the force of your swings and the timing of your jumps just right to cross the course in the fastest time possible. Do you have what it takes to be a star gymnast?

ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Fantasy Violence
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
A giant meteorite is headed straight for Earth. Land your spaceship on the meteorite and set explosives to break off small pieces so the rock breaks up in Earth’s atmosphere. Chunks of meteorite that are too big will smash into Earth, wiping out mankind. As an explosives expert, you can plant a series of bombs to create chain-reaction combos, easily blasting off chunks of rock the size of houses. You’ll also need to tackle the many strange alien life forms you encounter by either blowing them up or cunningly blasting around the piece of rock they’re standing on so they fall with the meteorite. Can you save Earth from obliteration and secure the future of mankind?
JellyCar 2
Publisher: Disney Interactive

Quote
JellyCar 2, the hit driving platform game, is here and fully loaded with three game modes and more than 30 levels. Post high scores, best times and longest jumps in the Hall of Fame. With so much squishy goodness, you’ll want to drive JellyCar 2 all around town. In Classic mode, drive your squishy car and use your special abilities to drive through squishy worlds. In Factory mode, guide the falling parts into matching chutes, tap the levers to open different pathways and guide each part down the conveyor belts. In Long Jump mode, you’re going for distance and speed – watch out for objects that can slow you down, and look for objects that can help give you a boost!

Same here.  I need to finish the Awakening expansion first.  but with Rift taking up all my free time, Two Worlds 2 and the expansion for Divinity 2 waiting in the wings, it may be a while.  the good thing is that if starts going on sale as quickly as the first one did (I think it was within six months that I saw it for almost half off on steam or some other digital sales site), I'll save me some cash.

For now we do. I did notice that one had a going out of business sign up, which probably means that all of the blockbusters will be gone from this area shortly. When I was in Orlando I remember the blockbuster by my house going out of business, and it was less than a year before the rest followed.

Dragon Age, but I'm actually hoping Box Set 2 of the tabletop RPG finally goes on sale this week so I can buy it.  The latest episode for the tabletop RPG was developed in  conjunction with DA2, so I'm holding off on the video game until the box set is in my hands.
