Madden! Madden! *dada da da dadada da da da da, dada da da dadada da da da da*
Ah, how I remember the animated pixelated John Madden from the Genesis game from like 15 years ago. Of course, that was also pretty much the last time I played any console sports games period, too.

PS2:
Madden 2009

PS3:
Madden 2009

PSP:
Madden 2009

360:
Madden 2009
Bionic Commando: Rearmed (XBLA)
Fable 2: Pub Games (XBLA)

Wii:
Line Rider 2: Unbound
Madden NFL 09 All Play

DS:
Bangai-O Spirits
Imagine Teacher
Madden 2009

PC:
Dracula 3: Path of the Dragon
Ford Racing: Of Road
Space Siege

Madden, Bionic Commando, Space Siege, and Bangai-O round out this week on the interesting meter. I'll be skipping everything this week, although I might grab BC based on reviews and word of mouth here.

What are you buying this week?

Crap, i thought Too Human was coming out this week. 

Oh well, maybe Space Siege, depending on how well it's received around these parts.  Oh, and the pub games for Fable 2, most likely.

I need to go pick up my pub games codes.  This should make for some fun.  Other than that..I finally got my PSP back, so I'm finally playing Monster Hunter 2: Freedom.  I might look at Bionic Commando and Bangai-o Spirits...

Maybe not this week, but I am sure I will eventually get Bionic Commando: Rearmed if it gets the GT Forum Seal of Approval. I loved Bionic Commando.

I'd like to hear the feedback on Space Siege.

I just picked up The World Ends With You (yeah, late to the party), so that should hold me for a while.

I should be getting a free code from ebgames.com for the Pub Games.  It's not like they'll screw up, right?  Space Siege can wait until it's around 20 bucks.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People!  It's not on the top list, but it's out for PC and WiiWare today. 

Also Bionic Commando: Rearmed (woohoo!)and Fable 2: Pub Games I guess.

Madden.

I'm probably just going with the regular version as I don't care to play the older iterations featured as extras in the collector's edition and I've never been much of a micro-manager so the coaching game isn't of much interest to me, either.  

Although, given how much I scream at Andy Reid each and every Sunday, being that I am expert armchair quarterback and coach, perhaps I should give the coaching game a try and see if I do in fact know what I am ranting about.  Might be an interesting change of pace.  Although I'd probably get bored pretty quickly with not having direct control over the players.  I want to play football, not call plays and watch it all play out on its own.

I'll be doing the two XBLA games, most likely.  Strongbad is very likely, too (on Wii).

I'll think about Space Seige, but I have a hunch I won't get it.

Bagai-O Spirits is supposed to be great, but it doesn't come in to Best Buy until next week, so I'll probably be waiting.

I'm interested in the Wii Line Rider, too.

Funny... I've ordered the CE specifically because I *do* care about the older iterations and am super stoked for Head Coach.  Madden is just the packaging slywink.
