So, this week we get to see how well EA did with Titanfall without all that fancy next-gen capability (running in 30fps, I hear) and if Kinect Sports is better with Kinect 2.0.  Next Gen also gets a package deal of popular PC Macross-like shooter.  And we get the nth version of Lego fill-in-the-blanks.  So, what's on your list this week?

Not much going on this week, it appears. Nothing really stands out, so I don't think I'll buy any of those. At least not yet.

Daylight was a potential for me, depending on reviews. But since it's been delayed, nothing this week.

I can't believe Kinect Sports Rivals is selling for full price.  I'd really love to have a Kinect showcase game to demonstrate to friends & family, but unless the reviews are just bananas off the charts fantastic, there's no way I'm paying $60 for that.  They should be treating this like a delayed pack-in game.

Boy, Warlock 2 has a tough row to hoe following the release of Age of Wonders III.  I fall squarely in their target demographic and I feel like my 4X fantasy strategy needs have already been covered for a long time to come.

To give you an idea, I've now been on the giving and the receiving end of the Plague of Bandits spell that establishes an enchanted Thieves Guild in a city.  Don't let the "Tier 1" descriptor fool you: waves of Scoundrels with poisoned blades can annihilate an unprepared garrison and leave you wide open to enemy conquest.  I'm still on the second campaign map, and I've already faced some really tight battles against an AI that knows how to probe for weaknesses.

you may want to wait for a sale.  Polygon gave it a 6, citing an annoying story and characters, long loading times and worst of all, control issues

I'm playing with the beta patch so the AI is less Disjunct-happy already, but to be honest, it wasn't really bothering me before.  I mean, any time the AI has a strategic spell running that gives them a benefit or disrupts my empire in any way, you can bet I prioritize Disjuncting it as soon as I can.

No on the ethnic cleansing, though.  I like playing a Good campaign, so my current empire is an amalgamation of Draconian, Orc, and Goblin cities which have been liberated from the other leaders.  I think I even converted a Human city last night.  They all like different environments too, so I've used the Terraforming spells to make Goblin lands really wet and marshy, the Draconians live in the desert, and so on.

It's good to keep everyone as happy as possible since the Orc Warlord has some sort of Drums of the Apocalypse spell he uses to herald a major invasion.  It basically craters morale, so anything I can do to offset its effects makes my cities easier to defend.

Disney Magical World, their take on an Animal Crossing-style game, is also out this Friday for 3DS.
