See title. Discuss.

PS2:
HUMMER: Badlands
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend
Monster Rancher EVO
Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked

PSP:
Major League Baseball 2K6

Gamecube:
Odama

GBA:
Cabbage Patch Kids: The Patch Puppy Rescue

Xbox:
Army Men: Major Malfunction
Classified: The Sentinel Crisis
HUMMER: Badlands
The King of Fighters NeoWave
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend
Stacked

360:
Major League Baseball 2K6
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend

PC:
Auto Assault
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend
The Sims 2: Family Fun Stuff
Stacked
Baseball Mogul 2007

Me? I'm gonna run right down this very minute and pick up that Cabbage Patch Kids game. Honestly though, when the heck did that make a comeback? They were popular some...25 years ago or so.

On a more serious note, I'm debating on getting Auto Assault, but I'm no longer sure if I want a mostly single-player MMO based on simply driving around and shooting things (although it was a lot of fun to play, don't get me wrong). Maybe Tomb Raider on the 360, but I'm worried about the frame rate drops I noticed while playing the demo. That, and the early reviews haven't been fantastic for the title. Maybe Odama, as I remember the fun I had playing the game at E3 TWO years ago.

Or more than likely, it's time to get going at that backlog I have that's only getting bigger. biggrin

Honestly, I'm hoping to have enough trade in bait for the Samurai Champloo game.  Early reports don't rate it well...but my love of anime conversion titles is too great to listen to early previews. smile

On the Cabbage Patch kids....I've been seeing a bunch of toy commercials for stuff that was popular when I was 7 to 12 years old.  Pogo ball, Cabbage Patch, Strawberry Shortcake, some older board games.  It seems everything is new again (for as long as the marketing keeps holding up).

Up until six months ago I would have been at the game store this morning waiting to pickup Odama. Unfortunately there have been a couple of rather poor previews out so it's now first in line in my Gamefly queue. Nothing else of interest on this week's list so the backlog thing is sounding like a good idea...

Coop, which version of Oblivion do you have?  If it's PC, I might want to donate to the cause of buying Tomb Raider...and I'm in DFW anyhow. smile

I'll be picking up all 3 new 360 games.

The Tomb Raider and Battlefield demos absolutely sold me on both of those games and I really want a baseball game for my 360 despite the lukewarm Xbox reviews.

Nothing new this month for me, with the exception of a probably Tetris DS purchase at some point.  smile

Grandia III and Oblivion are keeping me more than occupied for now, and Kameo is still awaiting completion as well!

My main anticipation right now is for the new Mario title on the DS next month!

Well, I was going to buy MLB for the 360, but it looks like hardware problems (dead CPU fan) to fix might kill that for me.

Tomb Raider for me.  Probably for the Xbox unless I read some reviews of the 360 version saying that the framerate has been fixed since the demo.  Circuit City has the PS2/Xbox versions of TR for $39.99 this week.

I'm waiting until my kids are at least five years old before buying a TV like that.  They already put their hands all over the current CRT.

According to early reviews, the answer to that is no. The 360 version of Tomb Raider is more of a port than anything else, with a few fancy lighting effects thrown in for good measure.

I do not think anything.  Burnout, Kameo, Shadow Hearts FtNW, Animal Crossing, a resurgence of Nintendogs (god I hate Archie Hubbs), and Zelda: Minish Cap are taking up my time currently.

I played a little bit of Zelda: Ocarina of Time last night.

I made my one current purchase with Oblivion (actually two since I bought Daxter) and now I feel like I'm slipping slowing into the backlog again....

Nothing here.  Not buying any MMOs right now, and Sims 2 FFS?  Um..$20 for FURNITURE and CLOTHES?  Screw that.

It's actually gotten several good reviews however, so the game looks very promising.

If you check here, the Eurogamer review is the only non-8 or 9 review for the game. Granted, that is for the PS2 version, but those are some pretty impressive scores.

Nada from that list, I may get Daxter for the PSP and for some reason Worms Open warfare interests me also for the PSP.  Thought I might like Tomb Raider but I wasn't sold by the demo, it was fine but I just didn't resonate with it.

Tomb Raider for the 360

Maybe Battlefield 2....since I never played any of the other console versions.

MLB, only if they give you 1000 easy points like the other 2k games! smile
