The reason I got a PS3:
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

and so I can play co-op with Lockdown:

Added Zack and Wiki. Reviews make it sound great!

I will be renting Ratchet and Clank.


I can't believe I am saying this, but I am considering Eye of Judgement depeding on whether TML and depward (and Gamingtrend  slywink) give it a good review.

I will probably put Zack and Wiki on my gift list since I'm still overwhelmed as it is but it seems like such a neat classic adventure game.  I'd also like to give Conan a rent sometime.

I'm pretty sure Front Mission for DS comes out this week as well.  At least, according to Gamestop it does.  That's the only possible on my list, although it might take a back seat to my current glut of SRPG's.

OH SNAP!  I've never heard about this game. Looks like I'll be getting it once I finish Zelda, but probably not this week.

For me the list of for sures is 0 but the maybes is long.

Jericho- The last CB game I played, Undying, is the only FPS game in my top 10 of all time.  Might get it, but haven't tried the demo yet.

Chessmaster: The Art of Learning- Believe it or not, I'd really like to get good at chess.  So this is another maybe depending upon reviews.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations-  The second one has not compelled me to finish it...so this is a maybe. Can someone correct me: but isn't this the last PW ported over from GBA? Isn't the next PW supposed to be the first built from scratch for the DS?

Actually, I was pretty underwhelmed by this week's list, and Front Mission would be the only title of interest to me.

Nothing on my purchase plan this week!

360:
Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation -YES, no sticks, though.
Clive Barker's Jericho -Waiting for reviews
Conan -Looking probable after the demo and some strong first impressions I've seen
Tomb Raider: Anniversary -YES

Wii:
EA Playground -Probably...I think this is looking good - the paper airplane levels look fun, at least)
Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure -YES, I've heard so many good things about this, it'd take some bad reviews to turn me away.
Namco Museum Remix is supposed to come out, too.  This could be interesting, as it's not just more old games ported to yet another console.
Mercury Meltdown Revolution -This thing has been coming out for months now.  The last two weeks it was a lock for release and then didn't appear in stores.  If I can find it, I'll get it.

DS:
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trails and Tribulations -After I finish the 2nd, which may be a while.
Front Mission is possible, too.
Dementium: the Ward is supposedly coming out this week as well, and I am very excited for it.

I'll be finally picking up or ordering Mercury Meltdown Revolution, because unlike last weeks false start, it looks like it really is available now.
Other than that, nothing since I now know I'll be picking up ME of release date I've got to save my pennies for it and a s#$! load of other games.
I'll also be downloading Clive Barker's Jericho on gametap.

Of course there's always a chance that a classic might hit VC that I just can't resist   slywink

Eye of Judgment and Castlevania are both preordered...

I have the first two Phoenix Wright games, and while I loved the first, wasn't compelled enough to finish the second.  So I'm going to hold off on the third.

How come Guitar Hero 3 isn't on the list?  I planned on getting that on Sunday for my 360.

I wanted to get Conan, but the demo changed my mind.  I'll probably pick it up when it's price gets cut later on.

Hmmm BestBuy's website has ads for their midnight openings saying you should be there on Saturday night.  Well hopefully they're already in stores and they just have to put them out.  I was hoping to get into this Guitar Hero series on Sunday!

Yeah, I don't think anything can ever have a ship date of Sunday (what with the post office and UPS and Fedex being closed) so a Sunday date is usually an indication of street date and I'm sure it will be in stores everywhere this Sunday.

Wow, for such a long list, I'm surprised to say NOTHING THIS WEEK!

I recently finished Tomb Raider: Anniversary on the PC and let me tell all you 360 owners... DO NOT HESITATE! It's totally fantastic.

If I had a PS3, I'd be getting Ratchet & Clank... but instead, I'm just inching one game closer to actually wanting a PS3. So now I have 3 games to get for it someday: Resistance, Motorstorm, and Ratchet & Clank.

Yes, there is a demo from what I've heard. HankRaptor said it was really fun. He mentioned a weapon called the Groovatron which shoots a disco ball into the air and makes all the bad guys start dancing so you can pick them off. That sounds hilarious. As for length, I'd wager in the 20-25 hour range.
