Rock Band pack is:

Quote
"This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race"   Fall Out Boy
"Date with the Night" Yeah Yeah Yeahs
"It Hurts" Angels & Airwaves

I'll be pining over R-Type Command, but my only purchase will be the Yeah Yeah Yeahs song.

But it's not on the official list!  eek

But, that said: Company of Heroes!  Also I will include Fallout 2 as it arrived last week and was also not included.

Look at me! I'm a PC gamer!

Crosswords and Boom Blox.  There has been a great deal of positive word on Boom Blox (btw, this is the correct way to spell this game), so I am very excited for it.  Also will be getting the Rock Band DLC.

Never heard of Boom Blox, but just saw the trailer on Youtube, holy crap that looks cool. Is that an XBLA release, or a full game?

The family really wants Boom Blox. While it DOES look great, I'm not going to spend $50 on a new copy. We'll wait for a sale of some sort. Otherwise... nothing this week. Woot!

I think Boom Blox could be the first US 3rd party Wii game to really light up some sales figures.  I'd probably be checking it out if I owned a Wii.  It looks great.

This is the Stephen Spielberg game.  People are saying that the motion controls are great and the game is a lot of fun for the whole family.

I saw there's some kind of co-op mode.  Anyone know if it's just 2 player or if you can open it up to 4-player single screen chaos?

Same for me, but not the DLC. 

I'm hoping I get to see Boom Blox reviews before I buy it, though.  And one more Crosswords review would be nice, too.

I'm debating buying Bully for the 360. I had so much fun with that on the PS2 that I seriously want to replay it only get achievements for it this time.

Even though I'm not buying it this week, this will be the game to spoil my commitment to only buying a new game every 6 weeks. I'll make my final decision in a few weeks depending on reviews, but it's looking like it will be a game to have, especially to play with my kids.

This week Big N is back to their 2 VC releases format with Pokemon Puzzle league [SNES] and Renegade [NES]. I haven't ever played either, but I've been told that Pokemon Puzzle League is like a very good Tetris game with a Pokemon facade and definitely worth it if you enjoy such games. I've also been advised by the classics game crew at work to avoid Renegade at all costs; apparently similar to, but no way near as good as River City Ransom.

If I remember correctly, it is actually more like Planet Puzzle League.

rock band DLC. Also I'm seriously thinking about getting a ps2 from TRU for 100 bones and persona 3. Figure by the time FF13 is out the 40g ps3 should be that much cheaper anyways.

I hope Crosswords DS is as good as the New York Times game. If so, I'll pick it up.

Pokemon Puzzle League is a great game. It's Tetris Attack (or Planet Puzzle League), which is my favorite Tetris-like puzzle game. I like it a lot more than Tetris, even.

I'd like to pick up Boom Blox, but between GTA4, the Conan beta (and impending release) and my renewed interest in LOTRO I just don't think I'd have time to play it anyway.
