Nope.  I'll probably end up picking it up along with Civilization 4 Gold.

Oh, forgot about Wing Commander Arena.  I'll most likely grab this as long as my impression of the demo falls into at least the fair-decent range.

Isn't Devils Crush the prequel to Devil May Cry? slywink

It's either that or a game devoted to Lockdown... icon_twisted

BOT: I'm tired of buying arcade games... these are a pain (if you even CAN) transfer them so there is little incentive to buy what I can't get rid of for moniez.

Civ IV:BTS day one purchase.
Wing Commander Arena is a maybe. I loved the Wing Commander series when I was a kid. If this gets good reviews I'll pick it up.

Agreed...some nice games this week.  if I didn't already have Shining Force on Gametap I'd download it in a heart beat. I didn't have plans to downloadd Kirby, but by next weekend I'm sure my daughter will convince me otherwise.  slywink

I've already paid in full for a copy of Beyond the Sword, so I'll be picking that up at the earliest opportunity.  I may also get Persona 3 if the reviews are good.

Debating whether I want to re-buy Civ IV for the third time in order to play BtS.  You'd think that one of these times I'd just hold onto it.

I'll wait a good long while on Civ, since I've never actually played more than the tutorial for Civ 4.

Persona 3 is tempting, but it will be the fifth SMT game that I own but never really play.  Still, I keep buying them.  Maybe someday...

GH 80s can bite me.  $50 for 30 songs that I don't particularly care for?  No thanks, I'll wait until it's on some kind of mega sale.  Like, $10.  I'll put the $40 I would've spent if it had been good toward a preorder for the Rock Band bundle.

You can get Civ IV + Beyond the Stars for $50 on Steam.  They also have a pack for $75 that includes the core game and both expansions.

I'm going to have to check that out.  I was hoping Direct2Drive would have something like that only with a better bargain, but they only have either the Civ 4/Warlords or Civ 4/BtS for 59.99, Civ 4 Gold for 49.99 and Beyond the Sword for 29.99 (there is no stand alone Warlords that I've seen).

Wing Commander is a maybe, I'll try the demo and see what's up.  Other than that... too many things I've picked up the last couple of weeks and waaaay too many things I want coming out the end of august.  May just skip a week of class or something.

Yikes wow man, thats WAY too much for me to spend on something I have a tendancy to pick up and play a few days and not touch for months. I was hoping I could get vanilla Civ 4 for like 20$ and then the expansion for another 20...pipe dream I guess.

Nascar 08 (Oh lord please don't let this be a mistake..) 
Will try to cap Civ: IV expansion. Did they ever fix that thing where Archers were taking out Apachi Helicopters? Hate that shit. I always felt if I spent hell of a time discovering stuff I should have the military advantage. Mech tanks being taken out by pikemen WTF. Game still rocks though icon_biggrin

I thought they fixed that in Civ 2- that 'feature' actually made it's way back into the game?
