I'd love to buy Vagrant Story for PSP, but since Sony is still fubar'd (I apparently have to reset my password, but can't access their site to do so because it's "under maintenance"), so I guess nothing.

Destructor, you seem to be missing a 3DS game from the list: Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion

I'm on the fence for that one, though I doubt I'll pick it up anytime soon.

I will be getting Red Faction and InFamous TwO (assuming my PS3 can survive long enough to play it).

Also for sure Excitebike 3D and Picdun looks cool.  I have a feeling I'll get some other DSiWare games that I missed, too.

And whatever "Surprise, it releases tomorrow" things happen at E3.

I'm waiting on reviews and impressions for OFP Red River. The review I read in PC Gamer was very favorable and it sounded like an improvement over Dragon Rising, but I want to see what some of the gaming websites have to say. If I get it it'll be the PC version so I can co-op play with my son and friends.

Conincidentally, I've been looking at that game for the past month -came oh so close to buying it- and I'm thinking of picking up the 360 version this week. My concern about it is that I really didn't enjoy Divine Divinity PC and I already have a Fallout 3 GOTY and Witcher Enhanced game going.  icon_confused  Is Divinity II DKS anything like Divine Divinity, or are they completely different games?

not in looks they are totally different,if that is what you mean(D2 is third person while DD is top down dungeon crawler by the looks of screenshots) but it is the same studio and part of the series(Divine Divinity,Beyond Divinity and Divinity 2)

Do not get the 360 version...the port is a complete and utter mess.  If you can't play it on PC, I honestly wouldn't bother with it at all.  And be sure to get the Dragon Knight Saga version, as opposed to the vanilla, as there's a world of difference.

Yep, the PC DKS version is good...and comes with a lot of tweaks and improvements.  I've been enjoying playing on and off for the past month.  It's a cool story and character premise.  I like how the world reacts appropriately to your...change.

No no, they fixed it with the Dragon Knight Saga version on 360.  It's much, much better now.

I'll probably get Infamous 2 with the BB reward certificate burning a hole in my pocket.  Debating on Red Faction, maybe on PC since I like to copy whatever CK does.  It's not typically my type of game but Ron's review made me want it anyway.  Must fight the forum effect!

Nothing for me this week.  I had wanted Red Faction but the change in direction was too far from what I liked about the previous games so I'll wait for a price drop.

FWIW, the PC version of DKS is rated about 10 points higher than the 360 version (and about 20 points higher than the vanilla 360 version).  Not that Metacritic is the ultimate judge of quality, but those rankings are pretty consistent with what I experienced between the two platforms and versions.

i can't say for the original version of Divinity 2,but DKS looks pretty great on the 360,and the main map(although takes a little longer to load than other places)is massive,not come across any bugs yet,i have just under 10 hrs on the clock

Yup, I've read that they really fixed things in the 360 version and that its more than decent looking. My gaming rig easily has enough power to run the PC version, so I might go with it. The thing is though, its not a game that I'd plan on hanging on to, so I'll likely still go with 360 version so that I can trade it later.

Yeah, okay, but the point is it's not a complete and utter mess any more that requires dire warnings to stay away from it.  I'm sure the PC version can be made to look better and may have modding, etc, etc, but if you prefer playing from the couch, the 360 version is no slouch (there I even rhymed it for more impact).
