Rise and shine - it's time for another weekly release list. Just keep in mind that they won't be anywhere near as early next week, as I'll be switching back to my usual AZ timezone.

PS2:
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
The Incredible Hulk

PS3:
Fatal Inertia EX
GRiD
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy
The Incredible Hulk

PSP:
Hot Shots Golf 2: Open Tee 2
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

360:
GRiD
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Ninja Gaiden 2
Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy
The Incredible Hulk

Wii:
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
The Incredible Hulk

DS:
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Summon Night: Twin Age
The Incredible Hulk

PC:
GRiD
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

As for me, I might pick up Summon Night: Twin Age, if I wasn't so busy with other titles (Conan). And if I wasn't on vacation. But there's always time for DS games, no?

That said - what are you buying this week?

I *might* pick up GRiD for the 360, depending on the initial reviews. I hate drifting and I want to find out how much the game relies upon those events for progress.

Jimmy Buffet DLC for Rock Band, and possibly Disturbed as well, if I like the note charts.

Lego Indy 360 if a) it has co-op multiplayer and b) gets good reviews/feedback.

interesting that the only releases for Wii and PS2, and the majority of releases on the other systems, are all movie tie-ins/related.

Indy Lego for me... probably rent it.

Big week for me. Lots of preorders coming in.

Definitely getting:

PSP God of War Edition
Hot Shots Golf (PSP)
Lego Indiana Jones (360)
Grid (360)

Might give the Bourne game a look if reviews are good, but if it's full of that hit "A" now or fail bullshit then I'm out.

I hate to pass on Ninja Gaiden, but the game's ridiculous difficulty really gives me no choice.

This weeks VC game is Ninja Combat [NeoGeo], while the WiiWare releases are Toki Tori and Protothea. I've played Ninja Combat on Gametap and can comfortably say that unless you've played all 3 Streets of Rage and every other decent beat 'm' up for that matter, this is a game to avoid. I don't know much about the WiiWare titles except that Toki Tori seems to be getting decent reviews and Protothea is a remake of a PC top down shooter that features spaceship combat.

I doubt I'm buying anything this week, although Ninja Gaiden 2, Grid and Lego Indy are very tempting and probably all eventual purchases.

Going to get all the Rock Band DLC, plus the album I didn't get last week.  Will probably get the Wii Ware title as well.  Oh, and also getting Ninja Gaiden 2 and Lego Indy for the 360.

PS3:
Fatal Inertia EX - waiting for reviews.  I didn't like the demo when it was on the 360, but that wasn't indicative, apparently.  Still, the reviews are going to have to be pretty good.

PSP:
Hot Shots Golf 2: Open Tee 2 - one day, when the price drops, or if I start playing the PSP more

360:
GRiD
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Ninja Gaiden 2
Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy
The Incredible Hulk
There's not a single thing on that list that's a definite NO (though Bourne comes close after the demo - if I see more good reviews [Gamespy had one] I could be convinced to get it, though probably used at a later date).  GRiD, Indy and NG2 are the only definites (though I hear NG2 is a mildly disappointing).

Oh, and on VC this week are Ninja Combat and on Wiiware, Protöthea And Toki Tori.

I've heard very good things about Toki Tori, but again, I'm out of room.

Picking up Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures on the 360 for our son's Birthday next week and Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 for me. I enjoyed the Kung Fu Panda demo so will probably pick that up too at some point.

Seriously, just delete stuff to make room.  I had to do it to get Lost Winds and My Life as King and I haven't looked back since.

It infuriates me that I have to, and there are a few games that I am still working through which I don't want to delete.

Also, this is just going to be a further problem down the road.

If the Hulk game follows the paradigm set forth in the Ultimate Destruction version of the game from xbox days, I'll be on it in a new york minute.  However, i'm holding off until i see some reviews.  it's rare when a comic book based game gets it right.

I wouldn't necessarily count on it; Hulk Ultimate Destruction was created by Radical Entertainment whereas the latest is a different dev team. I'm admittedly a bit biased about Radical since they're a local dev studio, but based on how other past Hulk games have panned out I wouldn't be holding my breath. Hope my skepticism turns out to be unfounded, cause I'd love to get in on some more busting action with the big green guy.

nada pinata.   Thought about getting GRID or Bourne, but I totally expect to be able to get them for $30 in 60 days.  I can wait. 

Ninja G 2 was barely tempting until I remembered I never got paste the fourth boss on the first one after 200 attempts.  Never looking at one of those titles again.
