I'm on board for Zelda: Phantom Hourglass on the DS and Quake Wars: Enemy Territory on the PC. Both are pre-ordered.

(Although Team Fortress 2 might just be taking all the wind out of Quake Wars' sails.)

I want to buy FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage and PGR4, but since I sill have Stuntman to finish and haven't started Halo 3, I think I will be waiting for a sale before buying them.  Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow [PSP] is also another future buy when I'm less swamped. 

So: nothing for now.

And here's the VC games of the week:

Quote
Super Mario Bros.™: The Lost Levels™ (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Originally released in Japan as Super Mario Bros.® 2, this game has previously made only brief cameo appearances in the Western Hemisphere. Now available on the Virtual Console™ in all of its original splendor, Mario fans will appreciate the familiar look and feel of the game, while finding that its updated game play creates an entirely new challenge. No longer content just to wear different-colored overalls, Mario and Luigi also possess different skill sets: Mario can stop quicker, while Luigi can jump higher. In addition to the classic enemies already known to fans worldwide, there are also Poison Mushrooms, backward Warp Zones, and the occasional wind gust (which can help or hinder your progress) to take into account. And if that's somehow not enough, expert players can go looking for the game's secret worlds. So get ready to put your Mario skills to the ultimate test, and save the Princess again. Just don't be surprised if she's in another castle.

Sin & Punishment™ (Nintendo 64, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen – Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, 1,200 Wii Points): Created by the legendary development studio Treasure, this is a game that hard-core gamers and fans of Japanese imports recognize as one of the finest Nintendo 64 titles to have never previously reached North American shores. Its unique combination of English voice-overs with Japanese subtitles (preserved in this version) has only added to the enthusiasm for its eventual release here. Experience the frenetic pace of a classic shooter, while choosing from a variety of options and a number of different skill levels until you are ready to take on the full-blown challenge of Turbo Hard mode. Not to be outdone by the action, however, the intriguing story line gives the game its soul and draws you even further into the mix. Set in the near future, on an overpopulated Earth starved for resources, players uncover the intriguing mystery of two teenagers (Saki and Airan) and their battle against the Ruffians as they advance through level after level of nonstop action. Take a deep breath, gather your energy and prepare to see why this game is so highly praised.

Holy crap! Sin & Punishment! Treasure's awesome N64 game we NEVER got in the US! Go! Go buy it now!

360: (any one of these could drop off due to bad reviews, but PGR4 seems most likely to be a lock)
Crash of the Titans
FlatOut Ultimate Carnage
Project Gotham Racing 4
Spider-Man: Friend or Foe

Wii:
Ninjabread Man (was considering because of the great title, but it's from the people who made the horrible Anubis II)
MLB Power Pros (maybe)
Sin & Punishment (VC)

DS:
Kurupoto Cool Cool Stars (what is this game?)
The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night (slight possibility, but I think it's released now for the confused parent buy)
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

The only for sure game is Zelda.  Maybe PGR4, too.

Nothing again. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will get a rental but there should be plenty of used copies to buy later when I actually have time to play it all the way through.

I'm considering Zelda, and PGR4 is tempting, but I think I ought to hold off on both and work on my backlog.  PGR4 is definitely in the offing at some point, because I want more games to use my wheel with.

I may just trade in something. I dunno. I am scared of the unknown.

I'm most likely going to pick up MLB Power Pros. Something about the title really appeals to me for some reason. I think it reminds me of the good old RBI baseball days. I'm really hoping that it turns out good. Zelda is going into my queue. I just started replaying through Wind Waker which I never finished because my sister in law deleted the save when I was halfway through the game.  crybaby

Good for you, coop! Just let us know when you buy it though, okay?  Christmas is soooo far away! Tongue

I would get Zelda, since I've played every Zelda game ever made, but I'm not a big fan of the stylus-type gameplay, so that may be the first one I don't get. My DS is mostly my Dr. Mario machine, lol...

And the XBLA game of the week is Tetris Splash:

Quote
The most popular electronic game of all time is back, with new variants, enhanced graphics, and beautiful aquatic playscapes in Tetris® Splash! Since its introduction, Tetris has gone from Russian sensation to worldwide phenomenon, attracting more than 60 million enthusiastic players. Thanks to its unique, simple randomness, it's never the same game twice. Now, with new modes and team play, Tetris Splash introduces even more exciting, enjoyable ways to play this classic favorite. As easy to learn as it is addictive, it's equally fun for the casual player and the seasoned Tetris pro!

    * Modes of play: Three different modes of play including Tetris, T-Spin, and Combo, plus a unique screensaver mode.
    * Multiplayer: Playable solo, competitively or in teams, with an online multiplayer mode via Xbox LIVE® for up to six players.
    * New twists: New, enhanced graphics, and beautiful aquatic backscapes add a real splash to the fun of Tetris.
    * Content and themes: Exciting downloadable content will be made available including themes and background aquatic creatures.
    * Achievements: Twelve new achievements to master and conquer.

Enjoy?
