good thing there's nothing interesting this week because after buying Dawn of War 2 and Company of Heroes Gold off of Steam this weekend I'm tapped out.  I may get the Fallout 3 DLC eventually, but right now I don't really feel the need to play it anymore.  as for the CoD:WaW map pack I'll wait for the free PC version icon_twisted

Nothing. I considered getting Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta, but I haven't even finished "The Pitt". I put a couple more hours into it this weekend and realized (sadly) that my F03 fixation is most likely over with  icon_frown. So now it's just waiting till next month's racing games.

I'm so torn on whether to get the COD5 map pack.  Leaning towards no, but easly swayed.

I'm 90% sure I'll get the FO DLC- even though I've only completed one of the the three I've purchased, have that one about the swamp yet to buy, and only about 1/3 of the way through the mainquest 60+ hrs later. I. MUST. SPEND. TIME. WITH. THIS. GAME.

But it's like an old friend- it's neat to know that no matter what else is going on it's still there for me- waiting to be played. I find some comfort in that.

I saw that Overturn is already on the list, but some are not.  Here are the Nintendo downloads:

WiiWare
OVERTURN
Publisher: Studio Zan Inc.
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Fantasy Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: OVERTURN is a futuristic robot-versus-robot fighting game. Choose from eight different robots to pilot and master, using various close-range and long-

range weapons to blast away enemies in six single-player tournaments. Unlock secret modes and up to 12 new weapons. Customize your robot's color and weapons to prepare

for your next battle. Then take the action online to play in a two-player Versus battle or a four-player Battle Royale match. Search the world for Friends or other

players who are online and ready for battle. Players with the optional Wii Balance Board™ can use it to control their robots by shifting their weight.

Sexy Poker
Publisher: Gameloft
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: M (Mature) - Simulated Gambling, Suggestive Themes
Price: 500 Wii Points
Description: Get your pulse racing with a game of strip poker against a selection of six lovely manga-style women who may wind up in nothing but swimsuits or underwear

when the final hand is dealt. Choose the classic Texas Hold'em Poker to be thrilled as the bets increase, or try the Black Jack game for a mix of chance and strategy.

Discover the girls' personalities: they'll bluff you! Enter the photo gallery to see the pictures you've unlocked by playing and winning. If you're good enough, Emi,

Sakura and their seductive girlfriends will bet their clothes to stay in the game.

Virtual Console
TECMO BOWL-Arcade
Publisher: Tecmo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 600 Wii Points
Description: Released in 1987, the football game that took America by storm is back. This arcade version required a custom-made dual-screen cabinet and was popular for

its large characters and intense graphics. The game is filled with great action as players take control of receivers and running backs, quickly moving the controller

to break a tackle. Play alone or with up to four players in a two-on-two match. Experience the best moments of both competitive and cooperative play, finding holes in

your opponent's defense, then savor the thrill of receiving a pass thrown by your teammate. In addition, game options such as play time, team division and difficulty

level can be adjusted.

Nintendo DSiWare
Art Style: precipice
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: The sky is falling in the form of cubes in the action-oriented Art Style: precipice. Watch for the telltale shadow to avoid seeing your character get

crushed by a falling cube while climbing the stacked cubes to ascend to the floors above. Push, pull or shove cubes to make your climb easier. Try to gain extra points

by stepping on five cubes in a row on the same floor. In addition, you'll encounter special cubes that can either be helpful or harmful to your effort. Choose from

either TEN FLOORS mode, which challenges you to reach the tenth floor while scoring as many points as possible, or TOWER mode, which gives you the chance to climb as

high as you can. Do you have what it takes to make it to the top, or will you be crushed?

Let me know how that Korg software is for DS.  I've been awfully tempted to pick it up a couple times, but have doubts as to whether or not I'm actually creative enough to ever put it to good use.

I tried playing with it for a second without reading the manual.  Big mistake.  I did manage to make some cool drum beats, though.  Gamestop dropped the price to 19.99, which is why I picked it up.

A $700 mattress, a $90 bedframe, and a $60 delivery charge.

After that, not so much.  I did pick up CoD4 from Hark's "I'm broke" sale and am enjoying it heartily.

My first date from Saturday is out of town until Friday.  I sent a follow-up text last night that I would call her on Friday and I have not received a response.  I will still make the call, but I'm not confident of positive results.

I'm currently farming mobs at chemistry.com.  I got one "First date" drop in a week.  I'm hoping that allows me to unlock "Second date" so I can start grinding faction rep.  If not, it's back to PvE in the hopes of getting another "First Date" drop and working on my PvP skills.
