PS2:

PS3:
Dragon Age Origins: Awakening
God of War III
Resonance of Fate

PSP:

360:
Dragon Age Origins: Awakening
Metro 2033
Resonance of Fate
Perfect Dark (XBLA)

Wii:

DS:

Yup. It definitely continues. But I'll need to finish FFXIII and BF:BC2 (or at least put a few dozen hours into both) before I grab anything else. For the rest of you though...

What are you buying this week?

I think nothing for me, but I'll watch reviews of Metro 2033 with interest.

Surely Sam & Max season 2 isn't a new release for PC?  I've had that disc for quite some time.

I'll get the Dragon Age expansion for PC, and I got GT effected into getting God of War 3.  I can't keep up at all with all these great games!

Have the GoW3 giant box coming from Walmart sometime and eventually I'll probably pick up Metro 2033 in the future assuming it's decent.

Resonance of Fate for PS3 and Perfect Dark for XBLA.  I'm definitely interested in Fragile Dreams, but there are just too many RPGs coming out this month.

God of War 3 is sitting on the shelf while I'm really enjoying FFXIII.  I'll get to it eventually.

I might cave for C&C 4 as well if it has lots of funny campy acting.  The game was pretty underwhelming during beta.

It's the end of the Kane storyline. I'm not sure I can help myself. I've followed them from the original C&C all the way through. Might as well see how it ends.

Waiting on reviews for metro and infinite space. I haven't even played cnc3 so I'm not going to pick up 4 and never played any of the gow games.

Still waiting until next week for just cause 2.

Waiting for reviews on Infinite Space, but am likely done for the foreseeable future.  FF XIII is going to keep me busy for a good long while.

Infinite Space.  Been waiting for this for a while.  Should be a good time killer at work. (Overnights)

Maybe Resonance of Fate... but considering my addiction to BFBC2... I can wait on reviews/possible price drop.

I'm intrigued by Metro 2033 for the 360.

I'm not sure if I'm intrigued enough to pull the trigger on it.

Rage of the Gladiator is a fantasy-based fighting game in which you must fight for your life in the arena. One of the most gorgeous WiiWare games ever, it features amazing 3-D graphics, animation, lighting, shadows and special effects. Full voice acting means each boss has its own personality and taunts you mercilessly. Discover insane finishing moves: Summon a fiery meteor or savage tornado, or transform into a hulking colossus 10 times your normal size. Customize your character and specialize in skill trees – Offense, Defense or Magic – to gain new powers. You’ll also enjoy epic, blood-pumping music by legendary composer Sean Beeson. For added replay value, unlock Challenge Mode and encounter tougher bosses with new abilities. The game also supports the Wii MotionPlus accessory.
Triple Shot Sports
Publisher: The Code Monkeys Ltd.
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
Triple Shot Sports is one of the most advanced recreational shooting games available for the WiiWare service, immersing players in the world of competitive target shooting. Most competitive events consist of activities that are traditionally derived from hunting and combat skills. Over time, these practices have evolved into a variety of competitive sports that include Archery, Pistol Shooting and Free Rifle. As with real-life shooting events, you will have full control over the aim of the weapon. You must also account for prevailing weather conditions and the athlete’s breathing pattern, as these factors can influence the accuracy of your shot.

This is the 10th action-packed installment in the ever-popular CASTLEVANIA series, which depicts the epic struggle between the Belmont clan and the dark forces of Count Dracula. An instant classic, this title is recognized far and wide for its beautifully rendered world, outstanding game balance and haunting CD-quality music. The player takes control of RICHTER, the clan’s ultimate Vampire Killer, guiding him through a total of nine stages filled with treacherous traps and hidden secrets. Using your legendary whip – passed on from generations of Belmonts – and a powerful selection of Item Crash attacks, it’s up to you to destroy Dracula and his evil horde. What’s more, rescuing MARIA at some juncture in the game allows you to use her as a playable character for even more vampire-slaying fun.

Nintendo DSiWare

Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs – Fight For Survival
Publisher: Ubisoft
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Fantasy Violence
Price: 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Long before mankind stepped into the world, the Earth was a harsh environment dominated by dinosaurs. Every species of dinosaur had to fight to survive in this hostile environment. Travel through the hostile lands as one of three breeds of dinosaur while battling giant enemies to save your kind. Create and customize your own unique dinosaur. Explore four mysterious territories and discover buried fossils to complete your mission. Enhance your dinosaur’s abilities and compete against your friends in epic duels.
Car Jack Streets
Publisher: Tag Games
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: T (Teen) – Mild Language, Violence
Price: 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
A critically acclaimed game with high-octane action, innovative real-time game play, stunning visuals and an awesome soundtrack, Car Jack Streets will take you to the limit. The Italian mob is calling in your gambling debt of $1 million. Attempt a wide variety of criminal and legitimate jobs to earn as much cash as possible, but remember to avoid attracting attention from the cops and other gang members. Do you have what it takes to stay alive, pay your debt and rise to the top of the criminal underworld?

Rage of the Gladiator is supposed to be good.  IN for that.

Also this week, God of War III for me.  Also, Infinite Space and either Pokemon HeartGold or Pokemon SoulSilver.  Probably Metro 2033, as well.  And Perfect Dark.

how long before you think we'll see a Super awesome-o edition of Dragon Age that includes the DLC and expansion? Or is that not EA's m.o. ?

Also, I am interested in Fragile, but I have neither the time or money for new games. Maybe I can trade in some stuff.
