What are you buying this week?

Fallout 3 Amazon Stupid Expensive Edition for PC.

That's enough for this week. Motorstorm may come later depending on reviews/impressions.

You should try posting these earlier, I didn't even realize that Barbie Horse Adventures: Riding Camp was coming out this week. Now, due to budgeting reasons, I have to cancel Fallout 3 for the PC and swith it over to this.... thanks...

Nothing for me, my wallet is still tapped from Fable II.  Meteos for 360 might be worth a look though, that game was loads of fun on the DS.

Does anyone know what the price point is for the Penny Arcade game?   I somewhat enjoyed the first one, but $20 is pretty steep for a game you can finish in an afternoon.

Fallout 3 for sure on either the 360 or the PS3.

I'll be watching for a sale on Little Big Planet, and I'll surely get Penny Arcade 2 as soon as I dig myself out from the holiday deluge.  So Summer 09, I guess.

Fallout 3 on 360.

Here's how its gone:

Had the uber edition from Amazon pre-ordered and the CE reserved at Gamestop (just in case).

Then I cancelled the uber edition.

Then I bought Dead Space and SOCOM unexpectedly so I canceled my CE at Gamestop

I planned to buy FO3 at Christmas.

CC is doing a 10$ giftcard so I'm back in for the regular edition.

My head spins.

Oh and I'm in for the uber strat guide at amazon- especially since it has dropped to $20.00

Fallout 3. Undecided on it's platform though. I was going to go PC, but I just got a sparkly new Onkyo amp and big ol' honkin' soul-crushing speaker system for my consoles, so I might go PS3 instead.

But the PC version can use my 4870 video card and it'll have mods!

what to do?! icon_surprised

P.S. looking forward to feedback on that 500 pg hardcover FO3 guide.

VC = Earthworm Jim!! [Genesis]

Wiiware = Strong Bad: Ep 3 and Art Style: Rotohex.

I played Earthworm Jim on gametap and although it was a very good game I felt the sequel was better. Both games had very impressive graphics and varied and very fun gameplay. I've also been told by my classic gaming buddies that the SNES version was better than the Genesis version. So anyone interested might want to hold out for that one.

Fallout 3 is the only possibility for me this week. My purchase depends upon whether I complete Dead Space, don't get hopelesslly hooked on Fable II and if I win the 2nd round of playoffs in NHL09. So far it's looking like a November puchase. slywink

Wait, I thought consoles were the dark side ... anyway, I can't resist cookies.

I just pre-ordered on Steam. Anyone else get the Steam version? mine is NOT pre-loading, which means I'll probably get that 15k/sec bullshit I got with Opposing Fronts when I tried to download that on Orange Box release day. Ugh. I probably should've just ordered from Amazon.

edit: Just confirmed via the Steam forums that there is no pre-load for this game. So everyone & their brother will be downloading at the same time tomorrow. Hope to be playing by Friday!

edit #2: The game unlocks at 2pm EDT tomorrow, so it can download (hopefully) while I'm at work. And it's only around a 5 or 6GB d/l I think. I was figuring it'd be around 11 or 12 gb.

lol  icon_lol Actually here's the right link. slywink  If only.

Should be interesting to see all the reviews once they hit.  I think at 12:01AM tonight (err.. tomorrow), things are cleared so you should see a lot of info and scores.  I think we'll see a lot of good scores but you never know who's going to be like the OXM guy who gave Dead Space a 6.5, haha.

Fallout 3 for the 360. Maybe much later on when there are lots of cool mods I might break down and get a new PC rig, but when I had Oblivion for the PC I never did that much with mods.

"Ashley" from Gamestop called yesterday and invited me to arrive at 10pm this evening at my local store where I have my pre-order and pay up front, so right at midnight I can leave with the game. Now what they expect me to do for two hours in a place that's about the size of my living room I don't know. And sadly I have to work tomorrow, so it's not like I was going to get that much play on it.

My Fallout CE  for 360 should be here from Amazon tomorrow.  I'm hoping that my copy of Little Big Planet arrives at the same time from them, but they haven't changed the status of it to preparing to ship, so I'm a bit worried.  

I was extremely tempted to get the Pipclock version of Fallout, but wound up deciding I couldn't afford the extra $50 with all the other releases this year.
