Pre-ordered Crimson Gem Saga from Amazon, so that will be showing up. And somehow I feel obligated to buy inFAMOUS.  icon_wink

I bought into the complete season of W&G, so will download that. That Sherlock Holmes game is another in the Frogwares series, I assume... I'll pick that up eventually but not this week. Hadn't heard of Cross Edge before but the one preview I read mentioned the word 'complicated' several times.

I will be getting InFAMOUS for sure tomorrow.  I've heard Trash Panic is pretty cool, so maybe on that (that's on PSN, right?).

I will get W&G on Wednesday.  I'll probably be getting Bubble Bobble Plus and, maybe, Adventure Island.

I didn't know Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper was coming to Nintendo consoles, too.  Someday, I'll get one of those versions, if the reviews are decent.

I'll probably be renting InFamous at some point though.  The demo was very reminiscent of Crackdown minus the co-op awesomeness.

Atlus's commandeering of my wallet begins this week with Crimson Gem Saga, following by Knights In The Nightmare next week, Class of Heroes the week after that, and Devil Survivor two weeks after that.

As for XBLA, Yosumin and Boggle are also coming this week.

Yeah, was going to get Fuel, but I guess I'll be waiting.  Oh well.

I'm sure I'll get infamOuS at some point, but not this week, and not until a price drop.

Trash Panic looks awesome - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BRQqDRo7h8

Trying to find Dragon Quest V for DS.  Turning out to be really hard.  Did they only do a small run with this thing?  EB says it's unavailable online, both new and used, and it's only available at a few random stores around this area.  Best Buy lists it as completely unavailable in this area.  Seems like it's easier to get 4 than it is to get 5.

Tetris with garbage? Interesting. Curious what exactly the text on the arrows was saying.

*ahem* I had inFamous, Cross Edge, and Crimson Gem saga on pre-order.  (My birthday was a week ago, and a couple of family members gave me amazon cards.  Manipulating Gold Box ftw!)

And, over the next four weeks:
Prototype
Fuel
Knights in the Nightmare (DS)
Devil Survivor (DS)
Red Faction Guerilla
Black Sigil (DS)
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (PSP)
Class of Heroes (PSP)
Mana Khemia 2 (PS2)
Borderlands
Steambot Chronicles: Battle Tournament (PSP)

Jeebus. So little time, so little money.

I am intrigued by the idea, it could be a neat little toy. Won't buy until I see some reviews though.

Highly doubtful.  GameStop has it listed for September, and considering the lack of media buildup I'm guessing that is the earliest we will see it.

Ah hell, because of this thread I looked over the release lists and saw like 5-10 games that I'm interested in, although not $60 worth of interest (except Infamous tomorrow).

Yosumin is also out for the PC this week - $10 on Steam or $7 on BigFish Games.  It's not quite the same as the XBLA version, though.  The XBLA version has Endless mode and a head-to-head Battle mode, while the PC version has Endless mode and an Adventure mode where you play through a series of levels.  I tried both, and enjoyed the PC version more.  It's easier to play using the mouse, and the Adventure mode gives the game some structure, and looks to be quite lengthy.

Thanks for this post, Eddie!  I might have bought it on XBLA before knowing I could get it on BFG for cheap!
