Nada for me. When's the next AAA game coming out?

Red Dead Redemption, which is due May 18th.

I hear you. I'm really hoping Starcraft II lands this summer. I'm aching to play it.

it is. I'll say June

Yes, it'll be the same summer release window that they used to release 'Warcraft III' back when. I better put in my preorder soon!  icon_smile

It'll be a for sure purchase in a few years for my daughter and I to tag team thru.

Um you might want to do a little more research before you do that.  It looks mildly inappropriate for a young girl to be playing this unless your daughter is an adult.  Or she might think you're a perv Tongue

Good to know...in my brief reading it did mention dating between characters, but it didn't seem anywhere near as mature as that which is featured in Persona. As well the game is listed on EB with a 'T' rating. Is that a mistake - should the game be rated 'M' then?

Street Fighter is not considered AAA?

It would have been an AAA title.. back in 1996.  icon_razz

It's still a AAA title.

But.....but......but....it doesn't have bald space marines.  It can't be AAA!!!!

Spoiler for Hiden:
 I agree with you 100% this is a AAA title.

Depends on how you're defining it.  I consider it AAA but not really a "major release" since it's really more of an expansion.

It's not an expansion they have rebalanced everyone and added a lot of changes to the game. Online play has changed completely too.  There are too many things to list but you should check it out, SSF4 is a completely different beast than SF4.

Oh and I'm picking SSF4.

there was no online lobby was the biggest one.  That alone killed the game for several friends.  I would say it's the number one reason the game didn't really last for me. 

sadly I was going to pick this up but would only play it with the fightstick and my fightstick order was delayed until may 18th, which of course means by the time I got it I'd be playing RDR. frown

The XBLA game for this week is Tecmo Bowl Throwback for 800 points.

Oh, I definitely have to have this.  We've been griping about not having an XBLA version for years, reminiscing about how it was probably the most fun we've ever had with a football game.

I've picked up Splinter Cell Conviction.

I also put money down on Halo Reach Legendary edition, Diablo III, Starcraft II collector's edition, and Red Dead Redemption.

And now it looks like I have to buy a new monitor.

I rented it and I thought it was awful.  The very first area it had framerate problems and I died in about 20 seconds fighting the first bad guy.  Played about 2 minutes then returned it.  Hope you have
better luck with it.

Technically, what I bought this week was Red Dead Redemption, even though I don't have it yet. I sold Modern Warfare 2, Halo ODST, Forza 3, and Halo 3. Got $64.35 for the 4 titles, and only had to pay about $.40 for my copy, which I get to pick up on May 18th. Now... If someone can just speed up the space time continuum so I can play it tomorrow, that would be super

Wait... you sold ODST a week before the Reach beta?  icon_biggrin

Guess if you aren't interested in the Halo style that wouldn't be an issue.

Yes I did, I even told the guy at gamestop, that if one more person mentioned that I was selling ODST before the Beta came out that I would punch them in the jaw. I'm not a fan of the Halo style game, so I know once RDR comes out, I will most likely sell off BCBF2 and put that towards NCAA11. I play a game until I no longer feel like playing it.

I'm happy with the trade in, and I am sure that when the New Vegas Fallout title comes out, I won't be playing much MP games as it is.

Exactly, I got $26.50 for the 2-title package...

Also, FWIW, Gamestop is offering an additional 30% on all 360 trade-ins.
