The PC gets some love this week with Sims 2 : Pets and Sam & Max.
I'll keep my eye on Bully, JLH and Splinter Cell.

Just played about 2 hours of the Battlefield demo and I very tempted to get that.  Also interested in Contact and Splinter Cell.

Just to let those know a little about Contact that haven't actively seeked info about it: the battle system is almost MMO-like, in that you just walk up to a creature, hit (I think B?  Or A.  Or something - just one button) to prepare your little buddy for battle, and that's it.  So if you're looking for an engaging battle system, Contact really doesn't have it.  But if you want a game with BOATLOADS of personality (the reason why I'm purchasing it), then Contact seems to fit the bill.

...and it's made from Atlus   icon_biggrin

What the hell happened to the 360 version of Justice League Heroes? (If there even was one?)

That was a game I'd buy in a heart beat!

Our big TV is acting up (green gun seems to be dropping out). I did get it at Costco, though, so I should be able to get my money back if it keeps acting wonky.

Bully's getting good reviews and it sounds like fun.  I'm going to stop by Fry's Tuesday and probably pick it up if they have it.

May not be an issue for the American release, but it looks like the European release of Contact has been pushed back to 2/07.

Buying nothing, first 'cause I'm broke, and second because I've got enough to play with the reviews much less getting more.

'Tis the season to be swamped in reviews.

Picked up Tiger Woods '07 and Splinter Cell: DA yesterday.  Spent most of my time with TW, though.

Indeed, Vyers from the Atlus forums mentioned that there was a shipping delay and that Contact would be shipping today and available in stores tomorrow.  And yes, I'm eagerly awaiting this as well   icon_biggrin
