AssCred2 on 360 and the God of War collection.  Plus my PC copy of L4D2 is unlocking, but that got paid for months ago.

I think there's still two more games coming out pre-Christmas that I'm getting, but I'll probably leave them for my gift list.  With all the games I already have, I'm in no real rush for more.

AssCreed 2 going to rent it till I beat it (which saves me cash bigtime).

Got L4D2 preloaded on Steam.

LOL, nice typo  icon_twisted

I'm definitely getting AssCreed 2 on the 360, and L4D2 (PC) may be an eventual purchase.  after that all that's left this year is Rogue Warrior and Saboteur, the latter of which I have pre-ordered and the former is kinda wait and see.

The XBLA games for this week are Gyromancer (1200 points) and Diner Dash (800 points).  I'll most likely be picking up Gyromancer.

Can't wait for that stupid TH Ride game to bomb so hard in activision's stupid face.

Nothing this week and nothing until Jan.

edit:Oh shit, Gyromancer is out? Hmm, probably that depend if it's good. Hopefully Giantbomb has a quick look.

Assassin's Creed 2 (360)...might not get around to playing it right away though.  i'm pretty confident that it's going to be a good game, but Dragon Age is my priority now that i've finished the MW2 campaign.

God of War: Collection
LittleBigPlanet
- Have to dust off the PSP
Gyromancer
Assassin's Creed 2 (360)
Left 4 Dead 2 - assuming it works better than the demo did for me
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues - depending on revs/imps
Scene It: Bright Lights Big Screen - maybe not, as I just bought Buzz and didn't play the last Scene It much
EA Sports Active: More Workouts - this is a good series, but I haven't had my fill of the last one yet, so someday
Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles
Just Dance - my daughter may want this, but I know little about it

Their website says it's supposed to be out on Wednesday, but it seems to be AWOL on Steam so far.  Strange...

How come the The Sims 3: World Adventures isn't on the list?  I believe that comes out this week too, but now that I think about it, I don't know if expansion packs make the weekly list.

Anyhow, I have the Collector's Edition of Assassin's Creed 2 for the 360 on pre-order, and I'll be getting World Adventures and God of War Collection pending reviews.

Wiiware demos have started.

WiiWare
Pokémon Rumble
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 1,500 Wii Points
Quote
Available exclusively for the WiiWare service, Pokémon Rumble is an action game in which you control Toy Pokémon (referred to as "Pokémon") and take on wave after wave of other Pokémon in a variety of stages. You can befriend some of the defeated Pokémon along the way, which lets you add them to your collection and grants you the ability to use them in battle. Switch between collected Pokémon at any time, taking advantage of the fact that the amount of damage you deal depends on the type of move used and the type of Pokémon hit. Be the last one standing to gain the right to compete in the Battle Royale and test your skills against many Pokémon at once. You can also team up with three people for some multiplayer action (additional Wii Remote controllers required), working together to take down tough Bosses and earning points that can be used toward recruiting or training Pokémon. You can even save your favorite Pokémon to your Wii Remote™ controller for exchanges with friends. Combining beautiful cel-shaded graphics and exciting game-play features, this is one rumble you won't want to miss. Note that a demo version of Pokémon Rumble is also available for zero Wii Points.
BIT.TRIP BEAT Demo
FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord Demo
NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits Demo
World of Goo Demo

Virtual Console
Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures
Original platform: Super NES
Publisher: LucasArts
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Quote
Grab your trusty whip and slash your way through all three Indy classics in this no-thrills-barred adventure. If it happened in the movies, it happens here: the giant boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart chase from Temple of Doom, the three trials from Last Crusade, Rene Belloq and Colonel Vogel – it's three times the action, all in one fully loaded game.
STREET FIGHTER II': CHAMPION EDITION
Original platform: TurboGrafx16
Publisher: Capcom
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: T (Teen) – Mild Blood, Violence
Price: 700 Wii Points
Quote
This is the classic PCEngine (TurboGrafx16) version of the two-player fighting game that started it all. At the time, a large capacity HuCARD was used to allow faithful recreation of the dynamic arcade game and its features, including bonus stages and sound effects. In the game, players select one of 12 characters and face opponents in a no-holds-barred battle to decide the top fighter. Master a character's special moves and combos to defeat your rivals around the world. In "V.S. BATTLE" mode, there's a convenient handicap feature. Using this feature to adjust a character's performance, a novice player can be evenly matched against a seasoned player to enjoy an intense, head-to-head combat experience.

Nintendo DSiWare
Art Style: DIGIDRIVE
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
It's traffic control with a twist as you try to direct identical cars down the same road in Art Style: DIGIDRIVE. This constantly moving puzzle game combines an easily understood playing field (an intersection) and a simple goal (create fuel), challenging you to properly guide a never-ending stream of cars. Stack similar cars five deep to create some fuel, then use that fuel to continue your progress in the game. Play in ENDLESS mode to see how long you can last, or compete against the computer or a human opponent in VS mode. Use combos to your advantage and see if your reflexes can handle the intensity of Overdrive mode. When all is said and done, you may never look at gridlock quite the same way again.
Arcade Bowling
Publisher: Skyworks Interactive
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
From Skyworks comes another addictively classic game, Arcade Bowling. It was designed by video game legend David Crane, one of the original founders of Activision and one of the most critically acclaimed game designers of all time. In the tradition of everyone's favorite Boardwalk bowling game, use your stylus and steady aim to flick "laser" balls down the alley and up the ramp into the scoring holes. The farther away the scoring hole is, the more points you'll get. Arcade Bowling features three futuristic sound tracks, state-of-the-art 3-D graphics and two addictive game modes, Classic and Progressive. In Classic Mode, roll up to nine balls to score as many points as you can. In Progressive Mode, enjoy multiple levels of game play with increasing score plateaus and bonus targets.
Robot Rescue
Publisher: Teyon
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Robot Rescue is a fun logic game based on a simple but entertaining concept. Your mission is to free robots trapped in 45 evil computer labyrinths while avoiding deadly traps. Sound easy? Not so fast. Each robot shares linked controls, so when you move one, you move them all. It will take clever planning and nerves of steel to pull off this electronic escape. You'll need to avoid many traps, such as mines or electrical circuits, and take advantage of special elements like glue stains. Choose one of three difficulty levels and get ready for a challenge.

Ass Creed 2 goes on the goozex list for 360. Considered GoW collection, but too many other things to play.

I've got Stoked: Big Air Edition coming from Amazon some time (they still show it shipping next week) and I'm considering LEGO Indy 2 even though Game Informer didn't like it too well. 

Maybe I'll get Assassin's Creed 2 after the holidays or something; I never got too far in the first one.

The reasoning is simple - I swear that when I hit EBGames to gather these all last night, this wasn't on the list. I saw a strategy guide and thought it was an early release of the guide, and didn't ponder further. Edited. biggrin

Most likely just GOW Collection. It would take a cadre of perfect, glowing reviews and at least a month post release for all the hype to die down and players to have a more honest assessment of it, before I'll even consider picking up AssCreed 2.
