Homefront is already bought and downloaded for the PC.   I'm keeping an eye on Shogun 2, but that purchae will probably wait for a Steam sale.

Slam Bolt Scrappers was a ton of fun at PAX.  It's 2v2, you play little guys on jet packs, and split your time between attacking the other team and trying to build your base with a pseudo-combination of Tetris and Puzzle Fighter mechanics.  There are different colored Tetris blocks that add turrets to your base as you form solid squares.  The bigger the square, the better the turret.  Blue = shields; red = missiles; purple = lasers.  There are also power ups for your little construction worker fighters.

Great little indie title, but it's a shame it's only on PSN and not XBL as well.

Homefront 360 version. Would be at the midnight release... but, working. Drawback to an overnight job. However, thanks to room mate will have it waiting for me when I get off of work in the morning.

Probably Okamiden, waiting for some reviews though.

Gah...enough with the flood of games!  In the last 2 weeks, I will have picked up:

-  Okamiden
-  Dragon Age 2
-  Beyond Good & Evil HD
-  Bulletstorm
-  Xenogears (PSN)
-  Vagrant Story (PSN)

How the hell am I supposed to play all these?

Homefront for 360. If I ever get around to finishing Okami, I assume I will get Okamiden.

PS3:
Slam Bolt Scrappers
Yakuza 4 - If I ever finish Y2 and then get through Y3, I'll pick this up, but that's waaaaay down the line.

360:
Full House Poker  I'll get it for my Windows Phone 7, too, so I'm a sucker.  Wish there was some kind of deal.
Homefront

Wii:
Trackmania: Build to Race

DS:
Okamiden  Picked it up on Saturday, and it's great.  Normally, I would like to have finished Okami first, but my Wii crashed about 2/3 or the way through, and I don't see myself replaying all of that right now (though I would happily start over if there's an HD remake).

March's sports frenzy continues and I'll be picking up Top Spin 4.

Then it's time to save some more cash in time for Tiger Woods 12 in just two weeks.

Rabi Laby requires teamwork, dedication and the love of a great adventure. Alice is a spunky young girl who adores her fluffy pet rabbit named Rabi. One day Alice was looking for Rabi and finally found him right before he jumped into a small hole in a tree. Without thinking twice, Alice jumped in after him. This is where their magical adventure begins. Alice and Rabi encounter intriguing animals and creatures that may lead them to the exit, or stop them from escaping. Together they will explore and discover things unlike anything they've ever seen before. They must work as a team to find the key and escape each area of the mighty labyrinth. Both Alice and Rabi have their own unique abilities and you must switch between them in order to complete each area and ultimately escape the labyrinth's grasp. The labyrinth awaits you...

Play Standard mahjong without all the bells and whistles. You can choose from more than 300 layouts or try different variations of the game.

Don't dally in "Shuffle" mode - the board will rebuild itself if you don't make a match in time. In "Match" you simply need to search for particular tiles. The tile images are strikingly sharp, making them easy to recognize.

Each puzzle in Liight is a unique combination of colored lights and targets arranged on a special board.

Every puzzle makes a different song each time you play. Nonstop mode in Liight is a fast-paced arcade puzzle game that uses the same basic concepts you learn in Solve mode in a constant struggle for a high score. Liight also has a Create mode to make your own puzzles any way you want, and a Share mode to send them to your Wii friends using the WiiConnect24 service.

For those still playing Majesty 2, Steam has added 2 new dlc for it.

Monster Kingdom and Battles of Ardania. 

Don't recall seeing it last week or this week.  I finally just got past the very difficult "Pretender to the Throne" mission.

weird that it took them this long to get those expansions.  they've been out for quite some time.  I'm trying to finish battles right now.  have two more maps to go.  i completely understand why a lot of folks really hate this game, but it's my go to game when i want to wast a couple of hours.  it's more tower defense game than anything else, imho.

Perhaps Homefront for the 360. I didn't pre-order like I usually do, since the last game from this developer, Frontlines, didn't turn out to be as good as I hoped it would. I'll be waiting for impressions on the multiplayer; the single player campaign doesn't sound long enough to make it a consideration in my purchase.

Homefront is already pre-purchased for the PC.

I also bought a Kinect and new 360 this last weekend, so I'm just going to tack that on here as well.  slywink

Mostly these days, I'm playing the "big games" that are already out, or have recently been released.  There's nothing on the list this week that will divert me from finishing Fallout New Vegas and then playing Dragon Age 2.  So, once again, the answer is Nothing This Week (so far.)

Of course, next week could be a problem - but I'm not looking for trouble, so no surfing - I'll wait for next week's GT list.  By then, I might even be done with FONV even at my rate of play.

IGN: 8.5

CLOSING COMMENTS
Okamiden has all the right ingredients for a spectacular adventure game, though it never quite reaches the heights of the titles it seeks to emulate. Even so, it shows tons of promise, and has me really excited for the future of this franchise in the making. All in all, there is nothing lacking in this package. An engaging tale, memorable characters, epic boss battles, and cute wolf puppies-- it’s all here and it feels great. Good news for gamers: it seems an old wolf can learn new tricks.

My son twisted my arm into paying 6 bucks for that "dirk the daring" ipad app..

And I bought the black ops map pack..  But uhh, that may have been last week too..

So, in closing, I am playing dragon age, shooty face, and waiting on the witcher...

I didn't care for the demo at all.  I didn't even finish a match.

Tennis isn't entirely my thing, but I have been excited about other games in the past (even other Top Spin games).  Still, take my opinion with a grain of "You should try the demo yourself."

Played for over an hour last night and so far I likey a lot. Played on Hard, three set match, and it played out VERY nicely. There's a lot of subtlety to how to make different shots that is explained very well in the tutorials.
