Just a bit late today, due to problems beyond my control.

PS2:
Hitman Trilogy
The Adventures of Darwin

PS3:

PSP:
Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground
Hot Brain
Transformers: The Game

360:
DiRT
Band of Bugs (XBLA)

Wii:
Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
Bloody Wolf (VC)
NES Open Tournament Golf (VC)
World Sports Competition (VC)

DS:
Brothers in Arms: DS
Fullmetal Alchemist: Trading Card Game
SimCity DS
Transformers: Autobots
Transformers: Decepticons

PC:
DiRT
Hitman Trilogy
The Guild 2: Pirates of the Seas
The Sims: Pet Stories

As for me, I'll be more than likely (re)buying Resident Evil 4 for the Wii. Its been a while since I played this fantastic Gamecube game, and I might as well try out the (better?) controls for it. And play the PS2 features I missed since I didn't get that version.

Possibly SimCity DS, depending on reviews.

Well I've got to say... one of the worst VC release weeks in quite some time. Other than Bloody Wolf these are truly lacklustre games. And from what I've read, it's the TGfx 16 version of Bloody Wolf which only supported sigle player. Boo hiss Big N for not giving us N.A.'s a good SNES or N64 game this week.

If RE4 receives good reviews, I'm considering trading in my GC version for it. It apparently scored very high in Famitsu's review and all reports indicate that the Wii controls are implemented very well. The release of the Wii version is opportune for me as the memory card containing my RE4 saves just corrupted beyond repair; luckily a 1st fo me. retard If I'm going to play it through again, I'd rather play the Wii version.

Barring bad reviews I'll probably get Resident Wiivil once I finish my 5th play through Eternal Darkness. Just to have native widescreen support is a nice upgrade. Should keep me occupied during the wait for MP3.

Repurchase Resident Evil 4.  Never played ps2 version so at least get to see some new content.

DIRT.  Can't wait for this.  I like Forza 2 but I love off road racing so it should be great.

I'm not ready to put Forza aside yet, so DiRT will have to wait.  I'll get it eventually though.

I thought Transformers for the 360 was due this week, but I guess it's next week.  Nada for me then.

dungeon maker - tho it only bears the most minor of similarities to the amazing, incredible dungeon keeper games (i doubt, for example, you can create a casino where 'disco inferno' plays when someone hits the jackpot), it's enough for me to give it a try...

Probably getting RE4, since I never actually made it out of level 1-3 on the GC version.

DiRT looks nice, but I never got a handle on the sliding in the demo, and I'm still playing Forza, so I'll wait a while on DiRT.

Plus, next week is going to be expensive already with The Darkness and Overlord both coming out.

Does anyone know if it's at all possible to transfer a Gamecube save to use on the Wii version of RE4?  I'll probably pick it up, regardless, but I hate the idea of slogging through to the same halfway point again.

Definitely getting Dirt.  I may get Band of Bugs, if it strikes me.  I'm not always sure on strategy titles, but I have liked their past two games.

Band of Brothers DS is high on my wait and see list.  I hope its good.  If it's even as good as the version on cell phones, but longer, I'll be in.

dungeon maker sounds interesting enough to dust off the psp after it's long spring slumber. 

simcity ds however is the kind of game which i've been wanting portable since the ds came out. 

i still haven't touched re4 gc beyond the first two hours, so i'd feel a little off having two copies of a game i haven't had time or inclination to play. 

not sure whether the transformers portable versions will be cool or teh suq, so it's wait for review.

agreed that this week is more than likely to be a pass in the end with darkness and overlord next week. 

btw, when does project sylpheed hit the shelves?  that's almost a 1st day buy for me.

i originally intended to pick up DiRT (360) on release day...then i got hooked on Forza2.  i may still pick up DiRT this week as it's a very different game, but i'm not sure i really need another racer right now.  i'm on the fence about picking it up or waiting a little while...still plenty to do in Forza2, and catching DiRT on sale would be nice...

The deafening silence around Simcity DS has me a little concerned.  I loved the old SimCity games back in the day, and was hoping for a decent iteration on the DS.  Looks like the only recent reviews have been pretty poor, and there's surprisingly little press (previews, etc.) for a game that comes out tomorrow.

Looks like I'll probably need to wait for a rental or used copy.
