Into the magic ball I go - let's see what I can find:

PS2:

PS3:
Wolfenstein

PSP:

360:
Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger
Wolfenstein
Shadow Complex (XBLA)

Wii:
Paws & Claws Pet Vet
Spectrobes: Origins
The Revenge of Shinobi (VC - Genesis - Note: The game has been modified from its original Genesis version due to copyright issues)
Family Slot Car Racing (WiiWare)
PictureBook Games: Pop-Up Pursuit (WiiWare)

DS:
All Star 5-A-Side Football
My Dress-Up
My Make-Up
Sudoku Ball Detective
Brain Age Express: Sudoku (DSiWare)
Guitar Rock Tour (DSiWare)

PC:
Osmos
Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger
Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 2: The Siege of Spinner Cay
War Leaders: Clash of Nations
Wolfenstein

Well, I was starting to wonder when Wolfenstein was due out - and apparently knowing the release date is half the battle. To buy it though? Not likely.

What are you buying this week?

I'm curious to hear how Wolfenstein is, heard very little buzz on it.

it did break its street date last friday at some places in the States,on xbox.com it has been getting good and bad reviews by people,some people complaining about Screentearing

multiplayer looks fun,i found these videos on youtube(360)...maps look decently big

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Sd31l97jpc

i found a PC mulitplayer video if you are interested in that version
http://blip.tv/file/2440239


bottom line is,if it isn't good,i get a week with it,try and squeeze out whatever Achievements i can then trade it in the week after towards Batman

Bought the entire Monkey Island series already so I guess I'm getting that. I know nothing about any other game being released. That's... odd.

============

Since everyone was talking about it, I just watched the Shadow Complex E3 video. Ummm, wow.

WiiWare
PictureBook Games: Pop-Up Pursuit
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Points
Quote
Enter the world of PictureBook Games: Pop-Up Pursuit and enjoy a family board game set in a pop-up picture book. Instead of simply rolling dice to move along the map, you’ll use cards (which can help or hinder progress) and coins (useful for buying more cards, but don’t forget about your Coin Bonus at the end of the game). Spaces on the map play an important role in the game’s outcome, and your computer-controlled opponents exhibit different personalities and behavior. Occasionally, the mysterious Book of Magick will be opened, causing an event that may change according to how you play. This mixture of exciting game play and charming, artistic atmosphere give Pop-Up Pursuit high replay value and unique depth—even if its characters are flat.
Family Slot Car Racing

Daddy, Mommy, Sarah and Billy are putting the pedal to the metal in Family Slot Car Racing. Race through three racing circuits, each composed of multiple racetracks and even bonus tracks. You can race against a friend for some friendly one-on-one racing action. Choose among multiple slot cars with varying designs to see which car has the best grip and speed. As you progress, you’ll unlock new courses and even new slot cars to help you reach the top of the racing circuit. Do you have it in you to be the fastest racer on four wheels?

This classic SEGA Genesis platformer features Musashi, a ninja out to defeat the evil Neo Zeed and his criminal empire. In this sequel to the arcade favorite Shinobi, traverse through various districts – from the bamboo forests of Japan to the streets of New York City – and fight incoming enemies by throwing Shurikens, performing special ninjutsu moves and slashing a katana sword. Battle against unique bosses at the last stage of each district and make your way to the final match with your nemesis, Neo Zeed.

Nintendo DSiWare
Brain Age Express: Sudoku
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)

Guitar Rock Tour

If you like rock music and have a sense of rhythm, your road to stardom starts here. Guitarist or drummer – choose your path and fire up the most famous concert stages with your band. For beginners or music experts, the engaging game play provides hours of fun. Tap the touch screen or press buttons to the beat of your favorite songs. Keep your cool in front of a hyped-up crowd and don’t miss a note. Warm up your fingers and prepare your ears for the explosive track list of Guitar Rock Tour, mixing recent hits like “Girlfriend,” “In the Shadow” and “Banquet” with rock classics like “Beat It,” “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and more.

Only IN for sure is Shadow Complex, though Wolfenstein is extremely likely.  Raven Squad looks interesting, but I'm waiting for revs/imps before considering it.

If I can find the Phantom Brave Wii game, I may pick it up.  Also, that PictureBook Games Wiiware title looks pretty cool in the video.  We'll see what reviews say.

This is why I love (and my wallet hates) these weekly threads.  Had no idea I had to have Shadow Complex this week until I saw everyone else putting it in their shopping cart and decided to read up on it.

I'm keeping an eye on Wolfenstein, but with Batman next week and a heinous backlog to make a dent in before the Nov-March flood, it'll have to be pretty damn good to get me really interested.
