So, anybody know where Waldo wandered off to? Maybe he's in this release list somewhere. Let's take a look:

PS2:
Scooby Doo: First Frights
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up

PS3:
Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010
Katamari Forever

PSP:
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona

360:

Halo 3: ODST

Wii:
Animal Kingdom: Wildlife Expedition
Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010
Family Party: 30 Great Games Outdoor Fun
Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up
Wacky World of Sports
Where's Waldo?

DS:

Hidden Mysteries Titanic
Just in Time Translation

Where's Waldo?

Well, a not very exciting list here, unless you're a Halo or Katamari fan. Or maybe Aion or Persona is more up your alley? I know I'll be staying away from everything here, as I'm more than occupied playing what I've been playing as of late.

What are you buying this week?

nothing.  I'm locking up my wallet this week from everything except D2D's 5 buck sale, since starting the first full week of October I'm getting at least one new game pretty much every week.

I'll be getting either Halo3 ODST, MUA2 or DiRT 2. Not sure exactly which 1 yet, but I'm leaning towards H3 ODST.

Aion, ODST simply because the deal will be the best in probably forever.

Basically, the beginning of the end of my checking account.

ODST and Katamari Forever for me.  Probably the zombie XBLA game, if it's good.

I'm interested in Aion, but I don't know enough about it.  Is it pay to play?  If so, I'm out.

WiiWare
You, Me, and the Cubes
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief
Price: 1,000 Wii Points
Quote
Experience a unique combination of strategy and skill as you maintain a level playing field in the physics-based action puzzler You, Me, and the Cubes. The action centers around Fallos, mysterious creatures that resemble humans and have an ability to balance on a playing field of 3-D cubes. First, create a pair of Fallos inside your Wii Remote™ controller by shaking it up and down. Next, determine suitable places for the Fallos to land, then fling them to the selected cube with a swinging motion. After that, the Fallos are on their own. If your placement is sound, the Fallos will remain stable and you'll clear the stage after tossing a required number onto the cubes. But if the weight or locations of Fallos causes the cubes to tilt and sway too much, the Fallos will lose their balance and fall off. Adding to the challenge, you'll find that some cubes have different properties, making tosses tricky and further threatening the stability of the Fallos. Guide Fallos through dozens of single-player stages or invite family and friends to join you in two-player cooperative mode.

Family Tennis
Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief, Mild Suggestive Themes
Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
Daddy, Mommy, Sarah and Billy return for some hard-hitting, fast-paced tennis action. Battle it out between the happy family members as you vie for the top spot. Choose from three different modes: Elimination Match, Free Match and Thrilling Rally. Play against the CPU or compete with friends. Elimination Match mode pits you against the CPU to test your skills, while Free Match mode allows you to play against another player under conditions of your choosing. Thrilling Rally mode lets you join up to three other players and rally to see who can get to 100 points first.

Virtual Console
Last Ninja 2
Original platform: Commodore 64
Publisher: Commodore Gaming
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Mild Violence
Price: 500 Wii Points
Quote
The ninja known as the Mystic Shadow Warriors were the elite fighting force of ninth-century feudal Japan. The evil Shogun Kunitoki was once beaten, but he has gathered all his mystic powers to create a modern-day tyranny in Manhattan. Face your archenemy Kunitoki in the urban jungle and conquer him with your ninja skills. Transported to 1988 Manhattan by an unknown force, the ninja leader Armakuni must find a way to defend himself against the unknown dangers that lie before him. Will this be the final battle? Can you vanquish the evil Kunitoki once and for all?

Nintendo DSiWare
Clubhouse Games Express: Strategy Pack
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-8
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Quote
Prepare yourself for a lesson in tactics as you play through five strategy-based games in this Nintendo DSiWare version of the popular Clubhouse Games. Take on an opponent in the classic Backgammon, invade an enemy base in Field Tactics, sandwich your opponent's pieces to capture them in Turncoat, create strings of five in a row in Connect Five and guess where to attack your opponent's pieces in Grid Attack. Play by yourself or use DS Download Play to host as many as seven friends.

MySims Camera
Publisher: Electronic Arts

I remember how surprised I was when I saw how popular the Cabela games were.  I figured it would be a niche game, like most fishing games, but non-hunters have been enjoying them for years.  "Someday," I'm going to try one of them.

In the meantime, whenever I think I'm done with Star Ocean 4, I learn something new and get drawn back in.  I had planned on getting Scribblenauts and Wii Sports Resort by now -  and will probably grab them this weekend.  If I get out the door...   Roll Eyes

I've managed to avoid all things ODST up until this point, so I'm ok with continuing my ignorance of the game. Seriously, I couldn't even tell you with certainty what genre of game it is, other than it is set in the Halo universe.

My ignorance is for a reason though. My checkbook can't handle the game. Sadly, I will most likely be waiting until Modern Warfare 2 comes out, and then everything else will go on my birthday/christmas wishlist.
