I'm on vacation at the moment, so here's the quick and dirty release list:

PS2:

PS3:
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

PSP:
World Championship Cards

360:
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

Wii:
Death Jr: Root of Evil
Emergency Heroes
Kawasaki Snowmobiles
The Monkey King

DS:
Super Dodgeball Brawlers
USA Today Crosswords Challenge

PC:
Dracula: Origin
Mass Effect
Stronghold: Crusader Extreme

As for me, the wallet is staying closed. And that's a good thing considering I don't exactly have access to my consoles or PC right now.

What are you buying this week?

Kinda interested in Dracula: Origin. Feels a long time since I played an adventure game. No hype at all about the game though... Googled up a review and it got a 7/10... Maybe I'l flip a coin

I'll take a run at the updated/re-released Stronghold game pending a little more research.

This weeks VC releases are Metal Slug [NeoGeo] which needs no introduction icon_wink and City Connection [NES] which I've been told was a very mediocre driving game. Even though I've got just about every Metal Slug game there is on gametap, I'm very tempted to get this one so I can play it with the Classic controler. TheWiiware games are Dr. Mario Online RX and Family Table Tennis.

Missing from the top list is Lost Planet - Colonies Edition [360] and [PC] which may have already released in the US late last week. I never played the original and I'm tempted to get this for the offline co-op play and the new online arachnid hunting mode. Plus the fact that it's only $30 makes it very tempting.

I'm intrigued by Quake Wars.  Depending on reviews I may even get the PS3 version just for the heck of it.

I'm interested in Death Jr for the Wii, but I won't be buying it now since I already have too many other games.

Possibly going to pick up Mass Effect.  I am just worried that the DRM that will ship with the game will be counter-intuitive.

According to a post at the XBox forums, this week's XBLA game is Commando : Wolf of The Battlefield, but I'm not sure if it's accurate or not.

I'm really curious about dodgeball on the DS. I'll be keeping an eye on reviews and out for firsthand impressions on the boards here and elsewhere.

Turns out it's Buku Sudoku and Warlords.

... and, ditto.  Have to read up on the controls though, can't take much more Boom Blox type of activity!  If it is easier, I'll likely get it, as the PSP Death Jr. was fantastic, imo.

I'm out of town until Friday, though, so I won't get a chance to play until the weekend (maybe Thursday).  But I am hoping to see reviews before then, and maybe I'll get to avoid them altogether.
