I'll be getting a PC (hopefully Collector's) copy of ME2 next week.  I want to be buying No More Heroes 2, but can't convince myself to since I haven't gotten around to finishing the first one.

Mass Effect 2 for PC already bought, just waiting for it to unlock on Steam in 2.5 days.

Why is Braid listed for the PC this week? That game was released on the PC months ago.

Braid retail box I think?  Instead of digital download.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

And I'm *really* debating Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. Reminds me a whole helluva lot of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (all-time favorite fighting game), but I'm waiting for impressions on netcode. Also I wish it wasn't on the Wii :/

No More Heroes 2.

I may get MAG, depending on reviews.

I will probably get ME2 someday, but I've just started another push to finish the first one, so not until then.

Nothing. Though the Mass Effect commercials are making it hard for me to wait. But, based on my experiences with the first one, I know it's not going to be anywhere as good as they hype makes it sound like it will....

Down the road probably, but not now.

That's my fear as well.  The first game got great early reviews and tons of hype. But for me it didn't come close to living up to that.

Nothing this week, although I may get ME2 sometime way down the road. My current queue of games I want to finish is:

Assassin's Creed 2
Fallout 3
Orange Box
Dragon Age
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2

So I'll probably pick it up in 2012.

I have Mass Effect 2 CE for the 360 fully pre-purchased thanks to GameStop's crazy trade-in deal earlier in the month (You'll give me $20 for my copy of Fable 2?  SOLD!)

No More Heroes 2 is a total surprise to me.  I knew it was in development, but had no idea it was due out this week.

The original is well worth playing, specifically on the PC. Just skip the collections. Tongue

I'm sure there's some catch up for new players, but like most sequels it won't be the same as playing I'd wager.

WiiWare
UNO
Publisher: Gameloft
Players: 1-6
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Quote
Get ready to call "UNO" on your Wii™ system! The world-famous card game is faithfully reproduced for the Wii console with some exciting new rules. Thanks to a multiplayer mode (additional Wii Remote™ controllers required) that's playable on one Wii console or online via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required), UNO has never been so fun and easy.
bittos+
Publisher: MACHINE
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Points
Quote
The next big thing in casual gaming, bittos+ is all about rotating, moving and placing game pieces onto a game board to make squares and, more importantly, squares within squares. Playing bittos+ provides hours and hours of entertainment for the whole family, with boatloads of challenge and replay value for even the most avid gamer. With luscious environments, multiple modes to unlock, game styles to suit every mood, multiple real-time reactive control methods, in-game Awards to collect and high-score boards for the entire your household, bittos+ is a new game-play experience that will sweep you away.
"Aha! I Found It!" Hidden Object Game
Publisher: Ateam Inc.
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
A hidden-object game for everyone has come to the WiiWare service. Try to find 12 particular items among a crowd of on-screen objects as fast as you can, from big fish to tiny earrings, easy-to-find items to well-hidden ones. Unlike most other hidden-object games, this one lets you play along with friends and family (additional Wii Remote controllers required) and compete to see who's best at finding the hidden objects in each stage. With 10 stages and more than 277 different items, there's plenty of searching fun to enjoy. Also, with items changing position each time you play, you can enjoy each stage again and again.

Nintendo DSiWare
Number Battle
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
From Japan comes NUMBER BATTLE, a board game that invokes the ancient art of feng shui while challenging players to clear the playing field. Take turns against human or computer opponents to reach a target score by placing numbered tiles on the board and linking the arms of each tile in various ways. Watch for the Winds of Change to possibly blow over the board during a battle, resulting in special squares that will score bonus points or affect game play in new ways. Items that aid you in your pursuit of points can also be found, but they'll cost you points and must be placed strategically. Go it alone in the main Story or Puzzle modes, or battle against up to three opponents from around the world via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required). You can even learn from your past with History mode, which shows the moves recorded during previous contests. This unique combination of puzzle and strategy elements results in an exciting battle of wits. Can you guide your Warrior to victory?
AiRace: Tunnel
Publisher: QubicGames
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
AiRace: Tunnel is an invitation to the newly started Project Tunnel. It was created to examine the quickness and attentiveness of aviation rookies. Think you've got the skills? Put your reflexes to the test and see how swift, precise and predictive you are. Maneuver your aircraft safely through specially created tunnels that are full of traps. Be careful: Your plane will speed up with every second, making each turn and each barrier harder to navigate. It's not just a game, it's a challenge.
Escapee GO!
Publisher: Gevo Entertainment
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
In Escapee GO!, players take on the role of Claire, who awakens with no memory of who she is. Save for her name, all information about her has been destroyed. In its place, something within her has changed. Hunted down by an unknown enemy, she must find a way to escape her pursuers using her newfound powers. Will she be able to survive? Using her heightened senses, Claire is able to detect enemies before they come into visual range. During her daring escape, Claire will find mysterious items that can temporarily enhance her abilities, allowing her to level the playing field.

Virtual Console
Ghoul Patrol
Original platform: Super NES
Publisher: LucasArts
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Fantasy Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Quote
The main attractions at the library's Goblin exhibit have come to life! As the Ghoul Patrol, you'll go back in time and de-spook an encyclopedia of zombified historic dudes. Vaporize garbage-can ghosts and ninja spirits, rescue bug-eyed librarians and wigged-out pirates, dodge flying books and adolescent-eating plants, and ultimately put the beastly spirit back in the history books.


Take that, ME2!
