Apparently the Gamecube and the GBA weren't quite dead yet, as there's a release for both consoles this week.  Who knows how well they'll actually sell, but they're there if you want to keep your aging systems around just a bit longer. Anyway... What are you buying this week?

PS2:
Shining Force EXA
Test Drive Unlimited
TMNT
UEFA Champions League 2006-2007

PS3:
Armored Core 4
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
The Godfather: The Don's Edition
Virtua Tennis 3

PSP:
After Burner: Black Falcon
Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road
Full Auto 2: Battlelines
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of Warlords
Test Drive Unlimited
TMNT
UEFA Champions League 2006-2007

360:
Armored Core 4
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Live Arcade)
Earth Defense Force 2017
Tetris Evolution
TMNT
UEFA Champions League 2006-2007
Virtua Tennis 3

Cube:
TMNT (Apparently the Gamecube wasn't dead yet)

Wii:
Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
Cooking Mama: Cook Off
Kororinpa: Marble Mania
The Godfather: Blackhand Edition
TMNT
Wing Island

GBA:
TMNT (Apparently the GBA wasn't dead yet)

DS:
Custom Robo Arena
Major League Baseball 2K7
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of Warlords
Steel Horizon
Theme Park
TMNT
Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament 2007

PC:
ETROM: The Astral Essence
Genesis Rising: The Universal Crusade
Mission: Blackhawk
Silent Hunter 4: Wolves of the Pacific
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
Test Drive Unlimited
TMNT

As for me, Puzzle Quest (while I'd rather get it on the PC, a portable console will do just fine) and Castlevania: SoTN. I'd like to pick up the next hack-and-slash Shining Force title, but I just don't have the time to play it at the moment. Heck - I'm even skipping out on the absurdly named S.T.A.L.K.E.R. PC game for now.

I'll be grabbing Puzzle Quest either for PSP or DS, not sure for which system though. That is, IF I can find it, heard this may be hard to track down.

Possibly Puzzle Quest, but with my 360 purchase I might need to pick up a few games for it instead.

Armored Core 4 on the 360 is my only definite purchase, though I'm likely to be my weak willed self and pick up Stalker as an impulse buy too.

And I don't count it cause it's only $10, but Castlevania is a buy for me too.

Definitely Puzzle Quest for PSP and Castlevania for XBLA. There are others I am interested in that will depend on reviews (Cooking Mama on Wii, Custom Robo Arena on DS, Wing Island on Wii, and Armored Core 4 on either PS3 or 360)

360:
Armored Core 4 Waiting on reviews
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Live Arcade) Yes
Earth Defense Force 2017 Waiting on reviews
Virtua Tennis 3 Waiting on reviews and waiting for my dead 360 to return from the grave, so I can try the demo

Wii:
Cooking Mama: Cook Off Yes
Kororinpa: Marble Mania Probably
Wing Island Reviews so far have been deadly, but if the major sites or people here think differently, I could be swayed...if it's something my three year old can do, then I'll also be in

DS:
Custom Robo Arena Waiting on reviews
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of Warlords Yes
Steel Horizon Waiting on reviews
Theme Park Maybe


Ugh, this'll be a rough week made even rougher by waiting for my 360.  Hopefully it comes back before Shimmering Isles arrives.  The sad thing is that even though there are a lot of games I'm getting, none of them has me really excited.

Runaway: Dream of the Turtle
Silent Hunter 4

Debating whether to get Silverfall via Steam this week, or wait a week for the boxed version.  I might just download it to avoid taxes and giving money to EB, but I do like having hard media.

Those reasons, plus I believe that Steam draws right from the developers, bypassing Atari, is the reason I'm going with the Steam release.

Shining Force EXA is high on my list for action hack and slash (and pretty art)
Puzzle Quest - but I can't decide which system to get it for
Custom Robo Arena - WOOHOO!!! More custom robo!!

Amazingly enough, I've found no reason to pick up the latest Yu-Gi-Oh title.  I'm still building my collection in Tag Force GX (PSP).

Plenty of maybes on the list but no definitelys until I read some reviews/impressions. Lots of stuff on that list sounds potentially interesting but I've never heard of them before (Puzzle Quest, Wing Island, Earth Defense Force 2017...)

I want STALKER and Silent Hunter 4 but my aging PC would probably choke on them. I'll pick up Silverfall from Steam.

So wait guys, everyone is planning on purchasing Puzzle Quest, but has anyone been able to actually pre-order/find it at their local game retailer?

Ive been to two in the past week, and neither has a SKU on the system...so Im kinda wondering are there other outlets for the game?

Puzzle Quest is tempting, but it's the kind of game that I'd pick up if i saw it, but not really seek out.  Apparently EB/GS is only carrying it as a special request item, and I have serious doubts that the store near my office would actually go to the trouble of contacting corporate to get it, so I doubt I'll see it there.  I'll grab it if I do see it.

Screw you and your computer that's capable of smoothly running Gothic 3, which I really, really wish my rig could run.

Oh, and when did Gears or War 2 come out?  icon_wink

I'll probably pick up Castlevania for the the 360, and that's it.

Virtual Tennis 3 for me if it gets some good reviews or if someone here can take one for the team and give good feedback.  Tennis sounds like fun on Live.
