Nada.  I still haven't played the Mafia demo yet.  I'm tempted to get Worms Reloaded since my machine can actually run it.  Maybe next month.

Would say Mafia 2, but the whole inclusion of playboy centerfolds has removed this from the every to be bought or played by me category.

Mafia 2 has been on my must have list for a long time so my return to WoW will be set aside for the next week as I devour Mafia 2! Yes, it probably will take me a week as my devouring time is limited. Tongue

I may get AYIM, even though I have it for the PC.  I'm also interested in Ivy the Kiwi?  For sure, Mafia II, though.  If Gunblades NY/LA Machineguns is cheap and halfway decent, I could see enjoying that.  Also probably in on the two XBLA titles.

WiiWare
And Yet It Moves
Publisher: Broken Rules
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Violence
Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Quote
And Yet It Moves is an award-winning, physics-based platform game in which players run and jump through a world made of paper. To aid in completing its twisted, mind-bending levels, you possess the unique ability to rotate the world at will. Walls become floors, slides become platforms – but a harmless pile of rocks becomes a hazardous threat when turned upside-down. Use the Wii Remote controller like a magic wand to tilt the world. Explore beautifully crafted environments. Survive 20 challenging levels filled with strange creatures, traps and puzzles. Unlock bonus levels, competitive play modes and surprising modifications that change the entire game. Turn your world upside-down with And Yet It Moves!

Virtual Console
UFOURIA: THE SAGA
Original platform: NES
Publisher: Sunsoft
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief
Price: 600 Wii Points
Quote
Join Bop Louie as he searches for three friends – Shades, Freeon Leon and Gil – to help him complete his mad scramble. It won’t be easy. Brain-boggling mazes, traps and bizarre pitfalls stand in your way on the journey back to Ufouria. You’ll rely on your friends to survive in this strange, changing world, and you’d better have the right powers for the strange worlds you’ll encounter. As you make your trek through mystical forests, deserts and oceans, you’ll need to seek out and destroy monstrous creatures every step of the way. Will you have the right powers at the right time? Don’t let the mind-zapping colors and stupefying sound effects throw you off.

Nintendo DSiWare
Rytmik
Publisher: CINEMAX
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Rytmik is an application for creating rhythmical and melodic themes and composing whole songs. It contains more than 170 carefully selected sound samples of drums, cymbals, percussion, bass and melodic instruments. With Rytmik you can quickly and easily create the basic building block: an audio clip. It consists of musical notations for up to four instruments that you may transpose, select their location in the stereo field and modify their volume, polyphony and echo. You can arbitrarily combine as many as 128 clips in four tracks to create complex pieces of music. You also have a rhythm library with a varied collection of 16 pre-made compositions that can be used to help quickly compose your own pieces. For the best musical experience, we recommend connecting headphones or a quality speaker system (not included).
G.G Series NINJA KARAKURI DEN
Publisher: Genterprise Inc.
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Jump and slash as a gravity-defying ninja in this acrobatic action game. Control a jumping ninja as he fights his way through a booby-trapped mansion. When your ninja touches a platform, it will automatically disappear and he will jump, making for pretty unstable footing. But where some see obstacles, a ninja sees opportunity. You will be forced to think on your feet, push your reflexes and bend the very rules of physics to conquer your treacherous surroundings. Master the art of the dash, shuriken and sword. Be a ninja.
My Farm
Publisher: BiP media
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
My Farm is a livestock farming simulation game. At the beginning, all you own is an empty field, a few pennies and a single hen. If you feed the hen and take care of it, she will lay eggs that can be sold. With this money, you can buy new animals at the Farmers’ Market and purchase equipment from the shopkeeper. Little by little, as your farm builds up, you will unlock bonuses including a wind turbine, rooster, guard dog and tractor. You will be able to exchange your animals with your friends who play My Farm or My Exotic Farm. There are six kinds of animals to customize, many farm improvements to buy and bonuses to collect.
Absolute Reversi
Publisher: Tasuke
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
This reversi game is for all players at any level. Absolute Reversi takes the classic strategy game and updates it for the 21st century with three modes of play. Free Play mode lets you select one of eight characters with different abilities to play against. In Challenge mode, you are given missions to complete to advance in the game. With the third mode, you can play against a friend using DS Download Play. Additional features include a strategy guide, different ability levels and the “Assistance” function, which highlights all possible moves per turn.

Mafia 2 should be downloading tomorrow.  I want to get Shank and Scott Pilgrim, but don't know if I'll be doing it this week.  No reason to buy games now that I won't be playing for a while.

I held off on buying games for several weeks (very unusual for me) mostly thanks to League of Legends but I don't think I can resist Mafia 2 and Elemental (preordered a while back).

Oh wait, that's a lie, I bought SC2 but that one doesn't count since everyone bought it by default smile

Anyone know how long Scott Pilgrim is supposed to be?  A modern River City Ransom sounds awesome, especially with the Scott Pilgrim humor.
