There's exactly one game I'm grabbing this week. Take a guess. I dare you. Well, if you guessed Dragon Quest IV for the DS, award yourself with a cookie or something. Additionally, I think I'll be grabbing Warhammer Online as well. We'll see.

What are you buying this week?

Did you list Rock Band 2 last week?  Well, I bought Rock Band 2 on Sunday.  I will probably pick up a new wireless guitar this week as well, assuming they are in stores.

I was planning to pass on The Force Unleashed until I saw that Toys 'R Us is giving away a free $20 gift card with every copy for the 360 or the PS3.  Now I'm going to be studying reviews like this one a lot more carefully.

I'm also planning to get Crysis: Warhead, and although I already own The Witcher and can supposedly receive all the enhanced content via free patch, I'm seriously considering picking up the boxed version.

Bought Rock Band 2 yesterday, and will be grabbing the wireless drumset this week if I can find them.  Tempted by DQ IV, but my DS is out of commission right now.  frown

Only 1 game for the Virtual Console this week but it's a great one; Mega Man 2 [NES]. I haven't played it myself, but I've been told by my classic gaming buddies that this is quite possibly the best Mega Man title ever released. This weeks Wiiware games are Strong Bad Episode 2: Strong Badia the Free and Potpourrii.

I'll be buying Star Wars The Force Unleashed, but I'm currently not sure if it will be the 360 or Wii version. I'm leaning towards the Wii version due to the mplay, but my final decision will likely be based upon which version reviews are more favorable for. If reviews are good for both I might just pick up both.

[Edit] Oh crap I didn't realize The Wicher Enhanced and DQIV were out this week. This will probably effect my decision to buy 2 Star Wars games.

Will likely end up with SW: TFU (360) and Crysis Warhead (waiting to hear if the Steam version has install limits or not).

Hopefully the RB2 guitar. I'll pick up SW:FU and maybe even Pure at some point, most likely with trade-ins or when they drop in price.

And so begins the onslaught...  I will limit myself to two games this week and only get Crysis Warhead and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, both for the PC.  Oh, and I guess I've already bought the whole season so I won't count Strong Bad Episode 2 for the PC.

What are you talking about? It was there the entire time.  paranoid disgust Tongue

And yes, Rock Band 2 was there last week (after somebody mentioned it to me anyway).

Any other Sunday releases this week that anybody knows about? I for one am tired of them.

Star Wars: Force Unleashed.  Ron's review solidified my decision to pick it up.

My wife also wants me to pick up Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise for her.

this was a close call after reading the review, but with RB2 yesterday and warhammer this week... and 4 games coming in October, I doubt I would get to play it

After last week's flurry of NHL 09 and Rock Band my wallet needs some oxygen, so nothing for me. Unless something really blows me a way in the next few weeks I won't need to buy anything for a couple of months as the two games above will keep me busy for a long, long time.

I'm still in on Star Wars: Force Unleashed and very in on DQ IV.  I may do Pure, if the reviews are very good.  If the reviews are sort of good, I'll wait for a price drop.  Otherwise, out.

What are the differences from the RB1 guitar?

Rock Band 2 and hopefully the RB2 guitar as well. I just ordered one from DeepDiscount for $59, but I think that might be a price error, we'll see if they honor it. I don't think they'll even ship it. I can't find the bloody things anywhere. Including Newegg, Bestbuy, Amazon, Buy, no one seems to have them listed. I'd like to know WTF is going on with them.

Next big purchase (barring a surprise) will be Hell's Highway.

Amazon has it. Although it's through someone else. New Egg also has it, but it's not called RB2, just that it's a wireless guitar.

DRAGON QUEST IV! It's finally here this week! icon_biggrin

I'm also likely to snag Rock Band 2 in the near future, and I have to admit that Yggdra Union on the PSP is sorely tempting. Also, Warhammer was utterly fantastic in beta and is very, very tempting to run with for a while.

BTW, Witcher Enhanced comes out Tuesday, but the Enchantment patch comes out Friday for all of us who already have it.

As for me, DQIV. Been pre-ordered for months.

i picked up stalker on friday, and am watching my gamefly queue for sw:fu.  despite the $20 card, i can't justify a game that short with the issues i have read about right now.  

dq 4 is a sure eventuality, but not at the moment.  i am waiting for reviews on crysis warhead.  patching up for a second go around in witcher.  anyone know if your save games will transfer over?

I already bought Stalker:CS, and I almost certainly will get Witcher Enhanced.  I actually gave a thought to Warhammer online as my first ever foray into an MMO, but then I came to my senses and realized I don't need another addiction.

They may be right. I also really like Mega Man 3, but I played 2 a lot more and I still hum the songs from time to time. I used to find it fun to try to defeat the various bosses with only the default blaster.
