I took advantage of the price drop this weekend and got myself an Xbox Elite.  I believe I'll be getting Batman Arkham Asylum.

C'mon NHL10...

Defense Grid is out on XBLA this week.  I'm not really into tower defense games, but I might get it if I like the demo.

 WiiWare
Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2
Publisher: Telltale Games, Players: 1, ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Alcohol Reference, Cartoon Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Quote
Description: Guybrush's adventures continue on the high seas as pox-plagued pirates lay siege to the innocent Mer-People. Between defending the Mer-People and dodging the persistent pirate hunter hot on his trail, Guybrush manages to catch up to his beloved wife and despised arch-nemesis, but the reunion is short-lived. Now Guybrush must focus on eradicating the Pox of LeChuck before more harm can be done. And as the Mighty Pirate draws closer to a cure, the waters will only grow murkier in this thrilling chapter of the epic saga.
 
3-2-1, Rattle Battle!
Publisher: Tecmo, Players: 1, ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief, Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
Description: 3-2-1, Rattle Battle! is a party game packed with exciting mini-games. Intuitive controls mean that anyone can enjoy playing - just grab the Wii Remote™ and shake it to "rattle." Great fun for single players, but the party really gets started when you register high scores on Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection to see how you measure up against players from around the globe.


Virtual Console
Phantasy Star
Original platform: SEGA Master System, Publisher: SEGA, Players: 1, ESRB Rating: E (Everyone 10 and Older) - Animated Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence, Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
Description: Originally released on the SEGA Master System, Phantasy Star is a pioneer in the role-playing game genre. Alis is the fearless female protagonist out to avenge her brother's death at the hands of cruel dictator King Lassic. Players must guide Alis and her troops through the sprawling environments of the Agol solar system in an attempt to defeat King Lassic and liberate the people of Agol. Engage in dynamic turn-based combat with dragons, ghouls, giants and magicians by using unique weapons such as glowing daggers, crossbows and magic spells.

Nintendo DSiWare
Puzzle League Express
Publisher: Nintendo, Players: 1, ESRB Rating: E (Everyone), Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points™
Quote
Description: The ever-popular Puzzle League comes to Nintendo DSiWare. As it is with all good puzzlers, the concept is simple: Connect blocks of the same color to clear them from the screen and prevent your stack from becoming too high. There are four single-player modes to choose from: Endless (survive to earn a top score), Clear (eliminate all blocks above the line), Score Attack (score as high as possible in two minutes) and Vs. COM (use items and combos to attack a computer opponent). You can choose from a variety of background music to help get you in the zone, and even play in horizontal or vertical mode by holding the Nintendo DSi system normally or like a book. Whichever way you play, you're guaranteed maximum fun.


Supposedly, they're going to start making an effort with DSiWare, but I'm getting tired of these "Express" titles, which are basically gimped versions of other games.

Is there some Phantasy Star love out there?

For me, it'll be 360:IL 2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, Mini Ninjas and maybe Section 8 (it's looking likely).  Wii: Muramasa: The Demon Blade unless I see some not good reviews.  Mostly, though, I'll be focused on Batman.

Amazing how far the music games have fallen off my radar.  I used to play for hours every day, was at midnight releases for both GH3 and Rock Band, tracked scores on spreadsheets, etc., etc.  I didn't even know that GH5 was hitting this week, and am finding it difficult to really even care.  That saddens me a bit.  frown

Oh, and nothing for me this week, unless I can snag one of the $20 copies of Star Ocean on Kmart's clearance.

Next purchase will likely be NHL 10 in two weeks.

Same here. I had actually planned to get Rock Band: Beatles on day 1, but now I think I'm just going to wait until it's on sale or used because I don't think I'm going to play it all that much. Well that, and I don't think $60 is worth it for just 45 songs.

What keeps them fresh for me is that I have alot of local friends who still play them a couple times per week.  If I played solo I probably would be burned out too.  My decision to get GH:5 and RB:Beatles will depend on how many local friends get them.  Many of them have a ton invested in the Rock Band platform and are hesitant to buy GH:5 after not liking GH:4 that much.

Good point.  I did have fun playing when I was at my brother's house a couple weeks back, but playing by myself just isn't terribly interesting any more.

Same here, though my next purchase will likely be Rock Band Beatles - it won't even be for me - I couldn't carry a tune if it was strapped to a donkey's back and had a plastic guitar controller!

Besides, I don't think I've made it to 300 hours on Star Ocean 4 - so nothing for me this week!

I think I can skip GH5 (at least that is what I keep telling myself), and I am going with a wait and see approach to Section 8.
