I'd really like to get Scribblenauts Unlimited for the PC, but I can't find any info about purchasing options online for Europe. Hell, I can't even watch the trailer on Steam as it tells me I'm in an incorrect region.

Possibly Persona 4 Golden.  I have a love/hate relationship with the Persona games, but I never did get around to playing P4 on PS2.  Would give me an excuse to dig out the Vita as well.

No Wii U games yet until I actually get the damned thing.

I was excited for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two but both IGN and Gamespot say it's underwhelming at best.

Looks like I will be getting
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
Jet Set Radio (Vita)
Hitman: Absolution
Pinball FX 2: Marvel Pinball - Civil War
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

And Crashmo

Technically I bought the Wii U and ZombiU last week, same with Hitman Absolution and Walking Dead Episode 5 for the PC months ago biggrin

New Super Mario Bros U - Wii U
Scribblenauts Unlimited - Wii U
Assassin's Creed 3 - Wii U or PC


Persona 4 Golden will be a rental.  I may think about grabbing a $200 PS3 this weekend because someone wants to play Disgaea 4 and I'm not too thrilled with the stand alone blu ray player I bought.  of course if I see a deal on the 3DS XL I may grab that instead, or maybe both of them.

Yeah, 200 bucks for a PS3 seems pretty nice, expecially considering I just spent more than that for a stand-alone blu-ray player (and the reason I spent as much as I did was to get DVD up-scaling performance that wouldn't suck compared to a PS3, it was tired of the PS3 sounding like a jet taking off when the fan kicked on in the middle of playback).

Might pick up the Marvel Civil War table for Zen Pinball, but, I'm pretty tapped for the holidays. Also moving in a month.

Dangit. Was just getting in to Borderlands 2 and now gotta go back and finish ep 4 for Walking Dead.

Will probably pick up the Zen Pinball table but honestly I'm getting sick of all the Marvel themed tables. Hopefully they start going back to creating some tables from other licenses or some more original IPs.

Looks like Lego Lord of the Rings is good after all (the lack of Metacritic reviews was just weird), so I'll be picking that up today.

Played some of it last night. There's a lot of confusion of what to do right at the start. You're thrown on a battle field, which is confusing enough with a bunch of stuff moving on the screen, and its unclear of what or where to go. We were running around killing things and trying to progress when we finally figured out you need to kill guys with banners. Then the next part you have to switch to one of the 3 playable characters on the screen to move forward. Problem is at this point you have no clue of who that other guy is and it took awhile to figure out which one we needed. Then you fight a boss which took awhile to figure out how to damage him. But performing the same action only got rid of 2 of his health hearts but not his last one. So we spent a lot of time trying to figure out what we were missing and trying a bunch of other things without success. Finally we went back and tried the other thing several more times and were surprised when it finally "took" and we could move on. Basically the beginning area, which is small, took us like 30 minutes to get through when it should have taken us no more than 10.

The next area didn't get much better for my impressions. Its in Hobbiton but instead of showing that in full screen view it splits the screen down the center regardless of how close to one another you are. Wish they didn't do that.

Then on the next area as you're making your way to the Prancing Pony when all of a sudden a cut sequence plays for no reason. Gandalf  is arriving at Isengaurd to meet Saruman. When we're given control again the screen is split once again. But I'm playing Gandalf at Isenguard on the left half of the screen and my wife is playing the hobbits back on the road to the Prancing Pony on the right side of the screen back. It was WTF moment. Made more so when my wife started nagging me to look at how fucking big the fishing pole she pulled out of the ground was when I was getting the shit kicked out of me by Saruman - to be fair that was a pretty good moment.

So, so far not great impressions but will stick with it since typically the Lego games are a lot of fun co-op.

I had none of these problems, though I haven't played co-op, so I can't speak about that aspect.  It does seem you can change the way the split-screen functions in the options menu.  IIRC, it's something like "Dynamic Split Screen" but I couldn't tell you what it does.

There are indicators at the top of the screen to show you what you need to accomplish at the beginning.  It seemed pretty clear to me, and I was finished fairly quickly with that segment (I do like to explore, though, so things take a little longer).

We've been discussing it here.  The reviews have been excellent, though it took a while for them to come out.  I'm sorry it didn't seem to click for you, but I've been extremely impressed.

I'm playing it solo, but didn't come away with a great first impression either (I'm about at the same spot as you). 

I ended up grabbing Persona 4 Golden last night, and KotOR II this morning.  Forgot about the Steam sale...I'm sure that will add a few things this week.
