On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

Absolutely nothing!

Well, almost. Are you buying anything this week?

PS2:

PSP:

Tenchu: Time of the Assasin

PS3:

Xbox:

360:

Cube:

Wii:

GBA:

DS:

Major League Baseball

PC:

I might be picking up a few Wii VC games, and/or Assault Heroes for the 360. But nothing else planned beyond that.

I got FFIII from Warning, so now I have to decide on which games to get with my $100 in gift cards.   I'm thinking about picking up Elite Beat Agents and Dreamfall, then pre-ordering Rogue Galaxy.

Not that I really need to pre-order, but if I don't I'm sure I'll spend the $$ somewhere else instead.

If I had a PSP I would likely pick up Tenchu just because I'm a whore for those games (despite their problems).  I really hope they make the upcoming 360 version decent. 

Yeah, so nothing for me this week.

Nothing.  Finished Marvel Ultimate Alliance this morning.  Nice ending sequence.  Will work on something else from my backlog next, maybe see about getting some R6 mp going again.

Probably going to get Rainbow 6 Vegas for 360 and Yoshi's Island 2 for DS with a gift card I got.  I will also probably pick up Super Mario and Castlevania 4 for Wii VC.

I bought some DS & PSP games that came out a couple months ago from Amazon.

I might get Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for the 360 if I can find it on sale somewhere.

With over 30 new games in the house from Yesterday, it is safe to say we won't be buying a single game, for any system, within the next 6-12 months.  saywhat

I'm very tempted to pick up a copy of this sometime this week, too.  I've been playing more of the demo, and I'm intrigued by the way it seems progressively complex without becoming unmanageable.

Having gotten some Best Buy gift cards, I'm contemplating pulling the trigger on an HD DVD 360 add on, despite the fact I have sworn I'd wait out the format war...  Beyond that thought, nothing I want coming out for a while...

Picked up Marvel Ultimate Alliance for 360 at Target today for $39.99.  Will probably be grabbing some Virtual Console titles too but Zelda honestly has me so wrapped up it doesn't even seem worth the effort yet.  Otherwise, I'm not planning on getting any other games until Lost Planet hits.

Yup!  I went from something like January -> August without buying a single game last year.  Pretty traditional for me to clear Christmas backlogs for most of the year.  PC games are a bit backed up, PS2 stuff - Giant Pile..  GC has about 5 titles I want to play.

See ya in 6-12 months.  icon_biggrin

Bought a DS Lite, both Castlevanias, and Elite Beat Agents. Figured it was a high time to hop on the DS train.

If you ignore Titan Quest, Birth of America, Oblivion, Gal Civ, Rise of Legends, Star Wars Empire at War...I could go on. Sorry man, that just sounded way too far from the truth from when you were at OO. You hyped many of games, I usually enjoyed your enthusiasm.

I thought we were speaking of games I purchased?

I never bought Rise of Legends or GalCiv2.  BOA was preordered a year in advance. EAW and Titan Quest were purchased by my kids.. They have plenty of Christmas cash from the relatives they spend through the year.

Well, took my X-mas money out today and picked up Dreamfall (PC), Elite Beat Agents (DS), Xenosaga III (PS2), and pre-ordered Rogue Galaxy.

All-in-all, it was a pretty good haul.

Ended up getting Raymann and NFS Carbon today, and my fiance bought me madden all for wii from costco (so we saved a few bucks). Haven't tried any of them out yet. Probably nothing more for the Wii for a while (until Super Metroid and Metroid Prime 3 come out).
