I guess I'm preordering Battlefield: Bad Company tomorrow because I have no willpower.

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.

I know it's a different developer, but it looks exactly like a sequel to Ultimate Destruction.  The graphics (although obviously much better), the weaponization of the environment, the wide-open city, etc. all appear very similar to UD.  I don't know how it'll turn out, but it looks like it will be a very similar game.

Also, Chaos Wars is out this week for the PS2, although Gamestop is the only store selling it, and it looks like they might not even have enough copies to cover preorders.  As for XBLA, in addition to Roogoo, there's also the space shooter Aces of The Galaxy.

Just finished Bully this weekend (360).  Time to move on to Tomb Raider: Anniversary - the download dropped to 800pts per pair of episodes, which means one target card from last week for the game.  Done - and I can wait to pay for eps 3 and 4.

Are there limitations on the games?  I've got a duffel bag full of Xbox games as well as a number of 360 games I no longer play.  But I've avoided trade-ins because it always feels like financial sodomy.

You're not getting anything for xbox games, or 360 sports games from prior years. There's generally an exclusion list.

I'm not sure why I hold onto games that I'm not playing anymore as they do me no good stored in a closet, but the idea of bending over for EB Games and getting pennies on the dollar for a shopping bag full of trade-ins seems too perverse to handle.  The $10 or less I'd save on Lego Indiana Jones would make me feel one step above offering BJ's for a dollar to save up for my next crack hit.  I'll usually just pay full-price at Best Buy in order to avoid feeling dirty at the end of the day.

As I stated in my other reply, I live in Canada so I'm not sure if it's available in the US. The only limitation on the games is that they need to have a trade-in value of $8 or more. I buy quite a few games at US EB's when I'm on business and I think the policies are different between Canada and US stores. In Canada the trade in value is based upon the rarity of the title in the specific store and it's current demand, so the trade-in value can vary over the course of even 1 month. It's likely even some Xbox titles will trade for more than $8 here; I know I've beens surprised a number of times recently. The down side to all of this is that pre-owned games typically cost more here; in some cases -popular Nintendo titles- considerably more!

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.

Have to say after playing the NG2 demo today I am definitely picking it up on the first sale I can find it on.  They have toned it down to my liking now.  Loved it.  First place I see it in the sub $50 range, I am all over it.
