If you're listing next Sunday's Splinter Cell, then you're missing Rabbids Travel in Time for the 3DS (supposedly the same day).

I may pick up Carnival Games, but I need to see at least a couple of reviews first.  I'll probably pick up the Dishwasher, 'cause I liked the first one.

I got nothing on the docket for this week in terms of purchases.  However, since I was so late to the party on "pre" ordering Tiger 12, it should be here tomorrow.  And I leveraged that preorder bonus into my Portal 2 preorder for PS3 so I could get the Steam code.

Sunday is the beginning of the week.  You just need to start these threads on Sunday instead of Monday, rather than wrapping around to include one day of next week.  smile

My kids are interested in Carnival Games, but we need to see some reviews first or a sale.

I picked it up on a whim (with the surprisingly good Mayhem 3D), and I've sampled through 3 of the 5 areas.  It's pretty good, actually.  Kinect controls work pretty well with all of the games I tried, and I had fun.  I think it's more polished than the games on the Wii.

Of the games I played, I enjoyed throwing baseballs at the bottles and spinning the big wheel the most.  The batting cage was a little tricky and the one where you throw increasingly heavy objects granny-style seemed off.  My favorite real-life arcade game is Skee Ball, and that seemed to work better than the Wii version, but I still can't effectively roll up the side like I do in reality.  The one that I think will be the most entertaining with others, though, is the one that's like Hole in the Wall.  You contort your body to get as many gold bricks as you can without touching any black ones (there are neutral bricks, too).  Seems quite entertaining.

There are problems, of course.  Some of them are Kinect based (the game sometimes says it can't see me when it's loading and the green zone they show for acceptable play puts me up against the couch) and some are game related (the pre game cut scenes go on too long [although that's sort of Kinect related, too, since the system doesn't let you skip], you have to hover on GO for every step except the one that actually shows you what you need to do).  Overall, though, it's more entertaining than I worried it might have been.  Just know that it's another minigame collection.

How... odd. Not sure if I'll pull the trigger on the full game.  icon_confused

Yakuza 4 is $20 off on Amazon and getting good reviews there, so picked it up.
