I see a few of you are stalking the Console Forums, trying to get the first response in here, so I guess I might as well post this week's release list:

PS2:
FlatOut 2
Super Monkey Ball Adventure
Barnyard
LarryBoy and the Bad Apple

PSP:
Super Monkey Ball Adventure

Xbox:
FlatOut 2

360:
Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting (Live Arcade)

Cube:
Super Monkey Ball Adventure
Barnyard

GBA:
Barnyard
LarryBoy and the Bad Apple

DS:

PC:

Dungeon Siege II: Broken World
Combat Mission Anthology
FlatOut 2
Atlantis Quest
Jaws Unleashed
Barnyard
Poker Superstars II
Total War: Eras
SafeCracker
Time to Ride: Saddles and Stables

Wow, what a load of...crap, especially in the PC section. The only things that look even remotely interesting are the expansion to Dungeon Siege II, Street Fighter 2 (based on how it's priced), and the new Monkey Ball game.

But it's not about me - what are you buying this week?

Street Fighter, unless the first impressions really suck.

Not sure what's up with Dungeon Siege II; my local Best Buy must have had 80 copies of the original game on the shelf last week, but no evidence of a price break or anything.  Maybe prepping for the expansion, but I can't imagine sales on this were anything like high enough to warrant that much shelf space (for reference, they usually seem to have 6-10 shelved copies of popular games, and 2-3 of unpopular ones).

I think I'm going to pick up Super Monkey Ball Adventure for the Gamecube unless the initial impressions are horrendous, which I don't think they will be.

I wanted to pick up FlatOut 2, but I'm not sure if I'll get it on the PC or wait to see if it gets compatibility love for the 360.  Not that I don't have plenty of racing left to do in Gotham, but this is a very different style.    smile

As much as I love SF, gonna wait to see if the netcode is tolerable, controls are up to par, emulation is good, etc. etc...

Wish we were getting third strike or alpha 3 or something :/

I've been thinking about saving up and buying a Turbo Duo over Ebay. I loved that darn machine, and would like to play a couple of the games, I am not confident we'll get all of the SuperCd games eventhough Hudson has said that all the titles they published will be available eventually.

Possibly Street Fighter, depending on how much they decide to charge.

My son has been having a good time with Cloning Clyde, so we'll probably grab the full version for him too, even though it's kind of more than I'd like to spend.

Hey, I've been playing it more and I've been ENJOYING it more!  Great Atlus localization, fun characters, fairly fun battle system, a decent story... it's GBA RPG goodness.

Probably nothing, though I will at least download the demo of SFII to see how it ported.

Same here.  I cant see myself buying it.  I tried playing SF2 a while back and I couldnt stand how it plays.  It just feels dated.

Nothing to add to the queue. I still have Prey out now and I'm waiting on ncaa 07 to get here. Ah well, gamefly is good about shipping and it's only been 2 days and it was listed as "short wait."
