I guess I may pick up Dragon Age, it'll probably be a piece of bug ridden shovelware.  I didn't think Rock Band LEGO was due this week, thought it was an end of the month release but GS lists it this week too, and I'll be grabbing that eventually.

edit to add:  I see they're also re-releasing the AC/DC track pack for RB for 20 bucks.

Would be Dragon Age for the PC, but I actually have to wait until probably next week to get it because I'm getting it via a work connection for an amazing price.  What with Borderlands, Torchlight, and Forza, I could probably use the delay.

SL, your math be wrong.  The God of War collection comes out on th 17th, which is the same day as AssCred2.

360:
Dragon Age: Origins - IN
Lego Rock Band - IN, unless reviews really tank it

Wii:
Need for Speed: Nitro - maybe, but it needs to be different enough from the 360 version (oh, and good)
Rabbids Go Home - I like the idea of this, but I will wait for revs/imps

DS:
C.O.P. The Recruit - I thought there was buzz building for this, once upon a time.  I'm curious 
Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron  - Interested, but definitely need revs/imps

Nintendo DSiWare
Sparkle Snapshots
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points

Quote
Take photos and embellish them to your heart's desire with Sparkle Snapshots. Choose from a large variety of fancy frames, backgrounds, stamps and funny outfits to decorate your photos, or use the powerful paint program functions to manipulate them in detail. Want to take a new photo and add it to your collection? Adjust the lighting conditions and lens type to match your subject and even use a shutter timer to allow yourself some extra time to get everything perfectly in place. Save your favorite snapshots in your Nintendo DSi Camera album and use Nintendo DS wireless communications to send your masterpieces to your friends. It's all the fun of a photo booth – and more – in the palms of your hands.
Viking Invasion
Publisher: BiP Media
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Fantasy Violence
Price: 800 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
They come from the North, and they're about to invade your Nintendo DSi system. Beware of Olaf the Viking and his motley crew. Even now, their drakkars are sailing up the rivers to attack your castles. It's up to you to construct fortifications to prevent them from pillaging everything you own. The more you defend yourself, the more ferocious they'll become. Before you know it, they'll be invoking legions of fantastic creatures straight out of the mythical land of Asgard. Fortunately, the experience you gain will help you to build even more powerful defenses. Thwart all your assailants' ruses and unlock new kinds of buildings: tornado-blowing windmills to repel the ships, monoliths that strengthen your fortifications or canons that shoot studded shells. Discover more than 10 levels, tons of units, a Campaign mode, a Survival mode and three difficulty levels. There's even a little surprise at the end. Can you rise to the challenge and stop Olaf from taking your treasure home to his sweetheart Olga?

As last of the noble and rare Bronze Dragons, you must defeat the evil SALMU dragons and reclaim the 25 exclusive bronze gems they stole. Explore 10 maps and travel through the great jungles of Earth, the scorched grounds of Fire, the frozen wastelands of Ice and the floating islands of Wind. Customize your dragon's appearance by changing its body, wings, tail shape and colors – even add stripes. Test your dragon's fighting skills against your friends in head-to-head combat or four-player tournaments.

A port of the arcade version of STREET FIGHTER, the legendary fighting game that started it all. Players control RYU or KEN and battle against unique fighters from all over the world. The first fighter to knock out an opponent and win two rounds is the winner. Power up your attack to three different levels – the longer you hold a button, the stronger your attack.

Navigate through eight challenging levels that will test even the best gamer's reflexes. The SEGA Master System version features an exclusive secret level not found in any other release.

Nothing but I got notice from Gamefly that they sent out Dragon Age.  Lucky me.  Since there hasn't been a lot of talk about the console version I feel like I saved $60 on a risk.

They've been promising better stuff (and the Lost Winds sequel is excellent), but, yeah, none of it has made it into the pipeline yet (I haven't even seen previews yet).

Dragon Age should be a no-brainer but I will have some days to see what you guys think
before I get it thanks to re-paint of livingroom. I will probably get it for both PC and 360, PC once the mods
start coming.
