Already have The Orange Box for the PC preloaded.  I'm dying to buy Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for the PSP--the new in-game cutscenes look incredible--but that will have to wait in the hopes that Santa brings me a new PSP soon.

Final Fantasy Tactics.   It's getting some awesome reviews so far. 

Between FF Tactics, Jeanne D'Arc, Luminous Arc, and the upcoming Disgaea PSP port, I'm in SRPG heaven!

The Orange Box [PC] for sure, and then maybe sometime in the future I will buy Sega Rally Revo on the PSP since it was developed by Bugbear.

There is a decent amount of games I want:  Folklore, FF Tactics, and Orange Box for 360.  Unfortunately, funds are not available for gaming this week, so I will not be buying a thing.

PSP:
Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions (if not at least a rental first)

PC:
Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer

Will probably pick up the Orange Box months down the road after it's on sale.

Neo Geo comes to the Virtual Console:

Quote
Fatal Fury (NEOGEO, 900 points or $9)

Terry Bogard takes down a criminal enterprise by the simplest means possible: joining a fighting tournament and beating everyone up. This is SNK's longest running fighting franchise, and is still a pretty good time. While the series would continue to evolve, this is a good history lesson in how it all began.

World Heroes (NEOGEO, 900 points or $9)

A 2D fighting game that features time travel so characters from across history can break each others' faces. Using three buttons instead of the usual four in NEOGEO games, this can take a little getting used to.

Art of Fighting (NEOGEO, 900 points or $9)

SNK's second series after Fatal Fury. The game zooms in and out of the action as the characters move, and Art of Fighting also introduced special moves, taunts, and the "spirit gauge" that limits how many big attacks you can pull off. This is a much more evolved game, with deeper play. If you have to pick one to buy today, this is the safe bet.

Orange Box
Sega Rally
DK: Barrel Blast
Touch Detective 2 1/2
AND
Puzzle Quest on XBLA!

EDIT TO ADD:

It looks like Mercury Meltdown Revolution for the Wii, Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck and Thrillville: Off the Rails for the big consoles are coming, too.  For me, the first is for sure, the latter two depend on reviews, but Thrillville is looking good (just not sure how much time I'll be able to give it).

The Orange Box

the only question is which platform.  i'd much prefer to play Episode2 and TF2 on my PC, but i'm not sure how well the graphics upgrades since HL2 will run on my aging rig...HL2 ran great back in the day, but i may wind up with the 360 version just to be safe.  i'd love a PC upgrade, but i just can't afford it at the moment...

Definitely grabbing Puzzle Quest this week on XBLA. I'm also curious about the Looney Tunes game, if it gets decent enough reviews I might grab it for some family gaming fun.

What's your system specs?

P4-3.0ghz
Radeon 9800Pro
1GB RAM

worked great for HL2 at 1280x1024, but i'll miss out on the graphical upgrades for the new stuff.  HDR lighting and more complex models don't play well with a 9800 Pro anymore.  i'm really torn over playing any HL game on a console, but if i hear that it controls well on the 360, i may just pick it up there so i can enjoy the full graphics in 50" HD splendor.  i don't like being the guy who turned his back on PC gaming just because of upgrade issues though icon_frown
