Welcome to the Weekly Release List, 6 hours earlier than normal. I had to post it now, as I'll be on the road during my usual posting time. Where to you might ask? Well, in short, my brother won a pair of tickets to Microsoft's Press Conference tomorrow morning (via a contest from Major Nelson), and it's a 6 hour drive from where we live. Watch the video feed that Microsoft will have tomorrow and keep an eye out for the lot of us. biggrin

Enough of that - now onto the list:

PS2:

PS3:
Fuel
Red Faction: Guerrilla

PSP:

360:
Fuel
Red Faction: Guerrilla

Wii:
Go Play Circus Star
Go Play Lumberjacks

DS:
Crazy Chicken: Atlantis Quest
Crazy Chicken: Pharaoh's Treasure
Crazy Chicken: Star Karts
Emergency Disaster Rescue Squad
Johnny Bravo Date-O-Rama
Knights in the Nightmare

PC:
Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned
Terminator: Salvation
The Sims 3

While Red Faction sounds like fun, I think I'll wait for user reviews before I snatch it up. Besides, I'm too busy playing InFamous as it is.

What are you buying this week?

Waiting for some feedback on Knights in the Nightmare.  I'm thinking it may be a bit too weird for me, but I'm interested in what other GT'ers think.

Nothing this time around.  We did pick up a PS3 from Gamestop this week though.


Waiting until 6/9, 6/16, and 8/25 for our next picks.

Red Faction: Guerrilla and Fuel. Red Faction: Guerrilla because I liked the single player demo and it's been getting good reviews (90% per GameRankings). Fuel because I keep whining about wanting an open world racing gaming (Test Drive Unlimited came close to what I'm looking for) and now there is one. I'll take the bullet for the forum and dive into Fuel first to try get some impressions up early, while the rest of you enjoy your Red Faction: Guerrilla copies.

My only concern is that my games should be arriving the same day as The Sims 3 and I'm hoping the crowds won't be a pain.

Might be better than racing by yourself for 1-2 hours...

Red Faction for the 360.  Reviews have been very good.

Possibly Sims 3.

And probably Wolfenstein 3D (or is that next week?).

Thursday I believe. Don't know how excited I could get over a game that old and basic. Yeah, it has sixty levels, but who has the patience to play through all of them?

WiiWare:
FINAL FANTASY® IV: THE AFTER YEARS™ By SQUARE ENIX (800 Points, 1 Players, Rated E)
FINAL FANTASY IV: THE AFTER YEARS is the sequel to the hit RPG FINAL FANTASY IV. The story takes place many years after the original and centers on a young man named Ceodore, son of the paladin Cecil and the white mage Rosa, who, along with their loyal and steadfast friends, once saved the world from evil born of the second moon. Now, monsters are reappearing in a world that had finally attained peace. The second moon has returned anew. What tidings does this ominous harbinger bring? Familiar faces and new allies join the battle to save the Blue Planet once more.

Texas Hold'em Tournament By Digital Leisure (500 Points, 1 Players, Rated Teen)
The deck is shuffled and the blinds are in – it's your move. Call, raise or even bluff your way "all in" with Texas Hold'em Tournament. You'll start off in the small Nevada gaming halls and work your way up to the Las Vegas Championship. Multi-round, no-limit hold'em game play ensures hours of serious poker action. Think you're the best poker player out there? Using broadband Internet access and Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, start climbing the worldwide rankings by winning online tournaments, and see how your poker skills stack up by viewing the online leaderboard. Texas Hold'em Tournament also lets you play multiplayer poker with up to five friends, and with full Mii™ character support, you can truly bring yourself to the table.

Virtual Console:
Boulder Dash® By First Star Software (500 Points, C64, 1-2 Player, Rated E)
Originally released in 1984, Boulder Dash is one of the big computer-game classics. It is one of the very few computer games ever to be ported from home computers to arcades, not the other way around. The hero of the game is the brave prospector Rockford. He must dig through caves to collect diamonds while avoiding various types of dangerous creatures and obstacles such as falling rocks. He is in constant danger of being crushed or trapped by an avalanche or killed by an underground explosion. Strategy and planning are the keys to mastering Boulder Dash. Once enough jewels have been collected, the door to the mysterious escape tunnel is revealed and Rockford can explore another cave.

Nintendo DSiWare™:
Mighty Flip Champs!™By WayForward Technologies (800 Points, 1 Player, Rated E)
Are you ready to become a Mighty Flip Champ? Take control of Alta and page-flip through a series of action-packed mazes. The touch screen reflects a preview of the next chamber and shows Alta's projected destination within it. When it's time to flip, use Alta's Magical Warp Wand to replace her world with the next one. Will she land safely on solid ground or be crushed under it? By cycling endlessly through room after brain-busting room, you'll match wits with some of the most devious traps in puzzle/platforming history.

Just so you know, Fuel is only published by Codemasters, not developed by them.  It was developed by Asobo, who don't exactly have a great track record.

I haven't heard much about this sequel, but at $8 it'll almost certainly be a download for me. I have fond memories of playing Boulder Dash on the C-64, so I'll probably download it as well. LoZ: Majoras Mask last week and now these; things are definitely looking up again for the VC.  slywink thumbsup

Other than those the only other titles for me this week RF Guerilla, which I'll renting if I can find an outlet that still has it in.

I won't need any games this week, the replayability of Sacred 2 (and a pretty good-sized backlog) should keep me in good shape for a while, barring Forum Effect exceptions.

Aw c'mon - the only folks who ever felt the supposed Wrath of Myto were the moronic kiddies who managed to pass our rigorous testing for admission to the best clan in FFXI ever.  And they started it!  icon_lol

I played the multiplayer demo and really enjoyed it quite a bit.  Judging by Ron's review, multiplayer could be considered excitement worthy.  There are some cool unique things with the backpacks and destruction, and lots of unlocks to get as you go.  I'm also really looking forward to trying the offline Wrecking Crew mode.
