Thankfully there is nothing on my plate for this week.  I need to catch up on everything I've bought in the last month or two. 

I am interested to hear if Victorious Boxers is any good, though.  Maybe for my Christmas list or something.

VC titles:

Quote
This week marks the first appearance of a CD-ROM game for the TurboGrafx16 on Virtual Console™. Take control of the Hunting Dog ship and battle deadly Obbellon fighters in the classic horizontal sci-fi shooter, Gate of Thunder. If shooting's not your thing, you can go out and save the world from evil demons or a power-hungry general in this week's other offerings that bolster the Wii Shop Channel's catalog of action-adventure and real-time strategy games.

Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel every Monday. Wii™ owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points™ to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new games are:

Ninja Gaiden II™: The Dark Sword of Chaos (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points): In Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos, a new villain, Ashtar, is revealed. Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa and rescue Irene Lew, a former CIA agent, from Ashtar. Destroy the Sword of Chaos, a weapon of great power forged from the bone of a demon. Use techniques such as the Fire Wheel or the Windmill Throwing Star and attack while holding on to walls and ladders. Use the most innovative technique of all - the ability to create Shadow Clones, orange shadow versions of Ryu that will constantly follow him, repeating previous actions (moving or attacking) in a delayed cycle. Once again defeat henchmen, creatures and bosses with new fighting techniques and even more weapons as you progress through multiple stages on your way to destroying Ashtar, Jaquio and the Realm of Chaos.

Metal Marines® (Super NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Set in the near future, most of Earth's land has been disintegrated in the chaos of the Anti-matter War. This real-time strategy game portrays the Colonies' Allied Force - the Metal Marines - in their epic struggle against General Zorgeuf and the Imperial Federation, who are bent on world domination. Commanding the Metal Marines across a series of battles, the player must strategically allocate resources, ready supplies, manage funds and move troops in an effort to outwit and outmove the opponent. The real-time battle system rewards split-second decisions and adaptability in the struggle for military superiority. Unlike most turn-based strategy games, Metal Marines engrosses the player in a fast-paced and frantic battle in which both sides advance simultaneously. A constant eye must be kept on enemy movements to maintain a formidable defense and not miss the perfect chance to strike. Strategic foresight and quick judgment hold the key to victory.

Gate of Thunder (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): The legendary sci-fi shooter is back! Gate of Thunder is a horizontal side-scrolling shooter that places you in control of special undercover agent Hawk, whose mission is to stop the deadly army of Obbellon fighters. Jump into the action as Hawk gets aboard his ship, the Hunting Dog, and heads out toward the enemy. Blast through stages while effectively using all three of the weapons at your disposal and receiving support from ally Wild Cat ships. Switch through equippable power-up options on the fly to change the direction of your attack. You'll have to blast in front of and behind you to survive all seven stages. Hard-core shooting-game fans looking for a challenge can select HARD or DEVIL mode to experience even more intense action!

No no, this one had some production values and is from a known publisher.

Possibly the Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East expansion (eventually) pending the reviews. Otherwise... nothing!

Picked up FFT PSP for this past week and that's enough to keep any fan busy for several months or more. Still playing catch up to other recent titles too, finishing up NWN2 so I can buy the expansion, and there's a big stack of games on my rental queue that will require my attention (Halo 3, Bioschok, etc).

GH3 in two weeks!  thumbsup

Possibly Katamari and Prism.  I really liked the demo for Prism, but haven't decided if I'm going to play it enough to justify, especially since I suspect I'll be playing a lot of TF2.

Gothic Universe comes out this week which contains Gothic 1-3 for $30. Pretty cool. I've always wanted to try out the first one, so when this drops down some I may pick it up.

I'll be picking up Mercury Meltdown Revolution just as long as this isn't another false start from it's publisher; not holding my breath.

I had no idea this many titles were releasing on the Wii this week.
Guilty Gear, Victorious Boxers, TH:Proving Ground and Table Tennis all interest me, but probably not enough that they're week 1 purchases. And I'd possibly get TH:PG and GG for other consoles since their ports or multiplatform which all too often = bad Wii control scheme.

Excellent week for VC releases, this weeks games really make up for the poor weeks as of late! According to vc-reviews and some of my coworkers, all 3 of these titles are very good if not excellent games and well worth owning. Good thing my classic gaming plate is too full right now with Breath of Fire 2 and LoZ: LttP.   slywink

Nothing here either. Still in "Orange Box mode". Plus there's still so many big titles to come like COD 4 and Mass Effect that pretty much anything secondary this fall will be put on the back burner for awhile. Just not a fat enough wallet nor enough time.

Still waiting to pick up HL2 from last week. That's a lot of titles coming out for the Wii, I'm impressed (at the quantity, not necessarily the quality).

Two XBLA titles this week:

Every Extend Extra Extreme and Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe.

The latter's a purchase for me.  I'll have to try the demo of the former...

For the love of all that is decent... stay clear of Two Worlds 360 at all costs!!! There's got to be something, anything there that would be a better third wheel in your 2-for-1 purchase.

Or if you absolutely must get Two Worlds, get it on the PC, where you can drastically improve the experience over the slipshod port that the 360 got.

Every Extend Extra Extreme

Sweet. E3 was a fantastic, underrated game on the PSP. I look forward to taking E4 out for a spin. Might not be until next year though.

Is this going to be 800 or 1200 points? Anyone know yet?
