nothing... again. I might become interested in Blitz if impressions here are encouraging.

I'm on the verge of trading in my 3 remaining systems (xbox, ps2, gba), picking up a DS and waiting for the next gen to hit.

I'd think about FEAR, but my relatively new PC is crashing from time to time playing Far Cry... cmon next gen hurry up.

Holy shit the Bible Game! W00T!!! Heathens, repent now!!!

/confirms first-class ticket to Hell


F.E.A.R. will be picked up about 10 seconds after it hits shelves this week. I'll probably pick up Serious Sam II as well for the weekend, and Quake 4 I'll let everyone know. slywink The console games get added to the Christmas list, so check off Stubbs the Zombie for Xbox, Shadow of the Colossus for PS2, then throw in X3: Reunion and Age of Empires 3 for the PC as well.

Hey, I like to diversify. smile

I'll be buying Blitz the League for the Xbox for sure.  Also I can't resist a new baseball game and the 2k5 World Series Edition looks intriguing.  If they fixed all the problems with the first release, this could be a great game, even though the season is almost over.

We have literally almost 70 reviews coming in the next 14 days, including Quake 4 tomorrow.  Hopefully we'll be able to help you weed out the crap so you can spend your cash on the gems.

Too much to pick from, so I'll probably fret for a couple of days, and end up picking nothing, because of being overwhelmed with choices.

That said... F.E.A.R is something I'm keeping a very close eye on, and I'm curious to see how Shadow of the Colossus and Fire Emblem fare.

Also, I don't think X3 will be released this week, since it went gold just yesterday. They did announce a UK release date of the, um, 28th, was it?

Fire Emblem
F.E.A.R.
Shadow of the Colossus

Those are the three I'm interested in. I'm going to hold off on FE and Colossus until next week though, as I think TRU is running their 'Buy 2 Get 1 Free' sale again.

I really want to play Blitz, but I dont think I will buy it.  Probably a rental.  I'm on the fence with Tony Hawk.  I want to play it now, but I also kind of want to wait for the 360 version.  I'll probably give in and end up purchasing it for the xbox.

I'd like F.E.A.R., but I don't think my PC will be able to handle it.  Other than that, nothing much else looks good except Shadow of the Colossus.

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (little explanation necessary)
Dig Dug: Digging Strike (love what Nintendo has been doing with the re-releases)
Life / Yahtzee / Payday (the entire family will get their use from this one.. and the Risk compilation was solid)

Hmm if X3 makes it this week I will have to try hard not to get it. Has anyone heard ANYTHING about the flight model? Why they couldn't just copy any other half decent space sim instead of that dreck in X2 is beyond me.

I've decided to forgo Fire Emblem and grab Blitz: The League instead.  The 8.6 Gamespot review (which, coincidentally is the same score they gave FE) put me over the edge.

Yea!!  I hate long games and this will mean they really focused on the game.

ICO wasn't much longer (shorter I think) and it was phenominal so they get my trust.
