going to finally pre-order Halo 3. Buddy wants to play co-op so I'll get it.  Eternal Sonota will be brought sooner or later.

Hmm, what's the word on Mercury Meltdown?  If impressions are favorable I might be tempted to put it in the queue.  I think I might rather wish upon a star for a Wii version of Marble Madness.

Nothing from this week's list, but maybe one of last week's hockey games on the 360 if I can play either of the rentals tonight/tomorrow. Otherwise... a recent personal record four weeks in a row of zero purchases.

I've got World in Conflict preordered and I'm really looking forward to it. I just have to finish up Two Worlds first.

Eternal Sonata is on my Maybe list, but it's also on my Probably Not list.

And this week's VC releases:

Quote
Yoshi's Story™ (Nintendo 64, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): The evil Baby Bowser has cast a spell turning Yoshi's Island™ into a picture book. Worse yet, the Super Happy Tree has been stolen, making the island dark and gloomy. Players must take control of six Yoshis, each a different color, and travel through six pages (worlds) of platforming adventure to recover the tree and return the island to normal. Featuring huge character models and bright, vibrant colors, the game's various environments (such as woods, caves, mountains and oceans) come alive in a uniquely gorgeous 2˝-D look. Eat fruit, avoid enemies and obstacles, and throw eggs from the Yoshis' never-ending supply in your quest to stop Baby Bowser's plan from succeeding. If you're good enough, you can aim for higher scores by being picky about the fruit you eat. And who knows, you might even find the mysterious black and white Yoshis.

Super Thunder Blade™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Mild Violence, 800 Wii Points): In this follow-up to Thunder Blade, you'll fly a new and improved attack helicopter in a series of attacks against guerilla armies that are bent on taking over the world. Although your aircraft is formidable, your enemies are vast and varied. You'll have to take on submarines, tanks, fighter planes and more. Your command of this state-of-the-art battle copter must be top notch, as you'll have to dodge oncoming fire and use your various weapons to eliminate all enemy targets so you can reach the guerilla base and end their nefarious plans once and for all. Put on your flight suit and step into the thrilling action of Super Thunder Blade.

World Class Baseball (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Acclaimed for its steady game play, World Class Baseball is the definitive baseball game on the TurboGrafx16. Battle the computer in OPEN MODE or play a friend in VERSUS MODE. Customize your team in EDIT MODE or even watch a game between two computer opponents in WATCH MODE. World Class Baseball offers the complete baseball gaming experience. Of course there's also plenty of single-player action. The main feature is PENNANT MODE, where the player chooses a team from one of the world's leagues and strives to win their team's league. Beat league rivals and save your progress with passwords on your way to becoming league champions. After winning your league, get ready to the face the other league's champion in the heated series for the world championship.

At least Yoshi's Story is kinda decent...

It's been out for a number of months in Europe and has received very good reviews; average ranking of about 80% on gamerankings. It's the only game I'm planning on buying this week and with all the games that are releasing in the next 3 months I'm very grateful it's only $20.  slywink thumbsup

Nice.
I am interested in ES, as I am with BD, but I'm kinda RPG'd out. So nothing this week.

I am escorting the emperor to light the dragonfires in Oblivion. Then it's on to MP3.

I will be getting a little known title next week. That, I think, will be the last purchase for me for a while unless there's a sweet deal on a DS somewhere.

You should check out Kororinpa Marble Mania - it's very similar, and actually uses marbles smile

Looks pretty, but I think this is one of things that I can't help but be really picky and anal about.  I need a grid surface, end-over-end green tube creatures, moving acid pools, vacuum cleaners, and an evil black marble. smile

Bought a Halo 3 360 yesterday & put $10 down on two copies of Halo 3. My son's finally getting old enough to play (dont care what teh wife thinks anymore lol) so I picked up a second 360 so we can throw down without going split screen. Gotta refresh my console FPS skills since I havent played at all since I picked up that bad habit called WoW two years ago (finally kicked it to the curb last week and cancelled my sub. I"M FREE  nod).

 icon_biggrin  I cheated.

You know, I almost feel bad for the ps3.  Week in and week out these threads are listed, and the ps3 just looks more and more pathetic.  Then, to throw salt on the wound, the games that are released are quite often determined to be better on the 360 anyway.  I'm going to guess that a day is coming that I won't feel bad for the ps3 - I just don't know when that will actually be.

One word on this weeks VC releases; bleh!

Admittedly I've only ever played Yoshi's Story on the N64, but I remember at the time not being impressed much at all. From what I've heard from friends and read from reliable web sources, Super Thunder Blade and World Class Baseball aren't worth the time required.

I checked with EB today and unfortunately the game isn't arriving until Sept 25th in the US and Sept 26th in Canada. We'll have to wait another week for it. Not much of a problem for me because my gaming plate is very full right now. smile
