Prototype (360)

This does look interesting, but I doubt I'll be buying any games, anytime soon.  Sacred 2 has it's hooks in me, and they are deeply imbedded!  Perhaps Prototype will appear on a (much) later list of games I'll be buying.

This, except for the birthday party.

I'll also get

Prototype (360)
Indiana Jones (Wii)
Tiger Woods (Wii)
and Swords and Soldiers (Wiiware) is supposed to be great.


In addition to being curious about Lego Battles, I may do Grand Slam Tennis, just to fiddle about with the WM+ more.  I'm also interested in Gunstar Heroes, but I have it on WiiVC.  No word on the VC stuff yet.

Grandslam Tennis and motion plus. Stupid that it is not a pack in but really looking forward to try motion plus out anyway.

Hope it delivers.

Waiting to hear some feedback on Class of Heroes and Lego Battles.  Very intrigued by both.

Was expecting to grab Rock Band Unplugged, but the demo left me completely cold.  Which was strange, since I liked Frequency...

I'll be getting the Iron Maiden pack for Rock Band 2.

I will eventually get Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii.  But probably not this week.

I may rent Prototype for the 360 when I take back InFamous.

Class of Heroes

I was going to get prototype..but the world just looks so bleh.  I think the commercials for Infamous have spoiled me too (and I don't own a PS3)

Considering how good inFamous is, that may be a tall order.

I'm curious about Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. I don't suppose Fate of Atlantis is included in the DS version?

nope, just the Wii version.  and according to Gamestops website there's a code you need to get from them to unlock it.

I've just started inFamous, so I may still be in the 'honeymoon' period.

I want Prototype but I'm not sure if I want to buy it or not.  May wait for a price drop, seems these open world super hero-ish kind of games price drop fast anyway.

I loved Infamous for a few hours.  But I flamed out on it too.  Maybe I'm just getting burned out on the open world super hero games.  Consequently I'm not as excited about Prototype as I was a few months ago.

I've got a freebie of Prototype [360] secured, unfortunately I'm probably not going to get it until next week or the following. frown

I'm very interested in rev's and imp's for the RTS Swords and Soldier [WiiWare]; the few reviews I've read so far have been very promising. My console classic buddies tell me that Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf [SNES] was a decent game but not quite in the same league asRomance of the 3 Kingdoms and Uncharted Waters. I still haven't download and played either of the latter yet, so I'll likely skip Genghis in favor of 1 of those.

On the fence for Protoype.  As for Class of Heores (Which SHould've been a definite) - the early reviews were terrible.  I think I'll wait to see how things pan out.
