I'm going to keep an eye on Vikings and Dark Sector for the 360, but I picked up Tales of Symphonia last week and it's successfully sucked me away from all my other games.

Harvest Moon: Cute?!

It was secure enough in my masculinity to buy Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town on the GBA since I hadn't played the original and it was the only one still being sold, but now they have to go and call the girl DS version "Harvest Moon: This One is Pink and It's for Girls."  Thank goodness I already bought the man version of this one!

No such thing.  (I kid!)

For me, I will buy the Boston DLC for Rock Band and that will probably be it.  I bought Devil May Cry on Saturday, which leaves only Hot Shots Golf for the PS3 as the only game out there I want but don't own.

I will be interested to read reviews and impressions of Opoona, though.

With that backwards baseball cap and sassy bandana, the main character is as badass as Leonidas!  Right?  icon_neutral

Forgot about Rock Band.  I think I'll probably be buying the whole $10 Boston pack tomorrow.

Unless Final Fantasy VII:  Crisis Core, Warrior Oroochi (PSP), or Optoona surprise me, I don't think I'm buying anything this week.

Is Boston the confirmed RB content for this week?

360:
Dark Sector
Universe at War: Earth Assault
Viking: Battle for Asgard

I'm interested in all three of these, but I need to see reviews on all of them.  They have the potential to be pretty good.

Wii:
Obscure: The Aftermath
Otomania
Opoona

I thought I was interested in all three Wii O titles, but I think the only one is Opoona.  I love the look of it, and I could use a Lite RPG on the Wii, but it's nunchuck-only control scheme seems like more than a gimick.  It seems like it'd be annoying.

DS:
Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword

This is the only title I'm IN on.  Well, this and the Boston pack.

It will:

Quote
March 25: Boston Six-Pack

“More Than a Feeling” (Master)
“Peace of Mind” (Master)
“Smokin’” (Master)
“Rock & Roll Band” (Master)
“Something About You” (Master)
“Hitch a Ride” (Master)

$2 each or $10 for all 6

Do you guys not live in the Rock Band thread like I do?

Not only does it have More Than a Feeling, it's an original version rather than GH1's cover version.

    *  "More Than a Feeling" by Boston
    * "Peace of Mind" by Boston
    * "Smokin" by Boston
    * "Rock & Roll Band" by Boston
    * "Something About You" by Boston
    * "Hitch A Ride" by Boston

All masters.

$10.00 just flew out of my wallet and into the sky.  I cannot wait as playing more than a feeling the first time on GH was one of the greatest gaming moments of my entire life.

on the fence on crisis core (80%), viking (60%), and dark sector (40)%. 

i'm hoping they release a demo for viking.  it looks pretty fun and sounds like a dynasty warriors game with a grander approach.  i think i'll try to gamefly it if nothing else.

of course, it's all still moot anyways as the 360 is sitting in a warehouse in texas.

I'll probably pick it up eventually, but it's up against Crisis Core this week and my game budget is pretty tapped.

FFVII:Crisis Core is tempting, but i can't really justify spending money on another PSP game right now...not with a couple that i've still barely scratched the surface on so far (and having to put new tires on my car this week).  stupid lack of spending money...

After having passed on Conan and Beowulf there is just no way I can not buy a game called Viking, and I have a feeling this is going to be better than either of those by a mile.

Isn't Viking by the part of Creative Assembly that developed Spartan and not the guys who do the strategy series?  If so, then I wouldn't be too optimistic.

I actually like Conan quite a bit.  Not GOTY or anything, but it's a lot of fun for what it is.
