And as usual, here's the weekly release list. Don't forget the monthly release list if you want a basic look at what should be releasing this month, too.

PS2:
Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2

PS3:

PSP:
Worms: Open Warfare 2

360:
Medal of Honor: Airborne
Stranglehold

Wii:
Pool Party
Adventure Island (VC)
Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (VC)
Donkey Kong Jr. Math (VC)
Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole (VC)

DS:
Worms: Open Warfare 2

PC:
Medal of Honor: Airborne
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened
The Sims 2: Bon Voyage

As for me, maybe Medal of Honor for the PC, but I have a rather full plate at the moment. We'll see.

What are you buying this week?

First!

Stranglehold- maybe- as I'll be able to get it for less than 30.00. Might rent it though.  Again, the demo was quite a bit of a disappointment as I've been anticipating this game for months and months.

If I can finally play the MOH demo and the reviews are good and it goes on sale...possibly that too.

If you guys are looking at the PC version of Medal of Honor: AA, Circuit City has it on sale for $40 this week. 

As for me, I just bought a new TV so probably nothing else for me this week.

Dude! They're releasing the classic Donkey Kong Jr. Math on VC this...okay, who truly cares? Thankfully Nintendo is releasing some good games too:

Quote
Adventure Island (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Comic Mischief, 500 Wii Points): A mysterious tropical paradise known as Adventure Island is the setting for this side-scrolling action game. The evil Witch Doctor has kidnapped Tina, the true love of Master Higgins. To save her, you must safely guide Master Higgins through eight perilous stages - including dense forests and creepy caves - while defeating all of the enemies in your path. Each area is made up of four rounds filled with enemies determined to stop you in your tracks. In addition, as time passes, Master Higgins's vitality is automatically drained. To keep going, he must eat constantly by grabbing fruit, milk and whatever other goodies he can as he races toward his goal. Sometimes eggs containing miraculous items like axes to throw at enemies or honey that grants temporary invincibility will appear. Use items skillfully to help you clear the areas. At the end of each area you'll face the Witch Doctor, who you must defeat to advance. Go, Master Higgins, go!

Donkey Kong Jr. Math (NES, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Learning can be fun, especially when you play along with Donkey Kong Jr. Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division by directing Junior, a cute little monkey who must climb up and down vines to collect numbers and math symbols to solve the math problems his father gives him. Compete with a friend in a race to solve problems in Game A or add more challenge with Game B. Of course, you can also practice on your own. This game is perfect for younger players who are looking for a fun and easy way to develop their math skills.

Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): After hearing of the legendary treasure of King Nole, the elvish treasure hunter Nigel undertakes a quest to gather various pieces of the famed loot. His journey takes him through Mercator Island's villages, caves and dungeons that hold King Nole's riches. Along the way, he'll have to help the inhabitants of the island while fighting against the treachery of Duke Mercator, who is searching for the treasure as well. A variety of obstacles and foes will try to deter Nigel, who must use all his wits and skills to defeat Duke Mercator and uncover the secret of King Nole's treasure.

Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone - Comic Mischief, 600 Wii Points): The hard-headed hero is back for more side-scrolling action in the third installment of the popular Bonk series. It's up to Bonk once again to thwart the plans of the relentless evil King Drool. There are seven rounds scattered throughout the Dinosaur Kingdom, each one filled with fun contraptions and comical enemies. Grab a Flower Copter or exchange 16 Smileys at the end of each round to play up to eight different bonus stages. Or you can change the size of Bonk by grabbing the new red or blue candy items. Depending on the situation, you can change your size to bonk your way through a dead end or to get a hard-to-reach item. And if that's not enough, you can grab a friend and put your heads together to defeat King Drool in the new two-player mode.

Buy Landstalker. It rules!

I completely agree with this statement. I think Landstalker was the most underated game ever.

Well they were supposed to have Lair and Airborne, but apparently Airborne got delayed to focus on getting the 360 version out and Lair had its street date broken. 

I have to get some Warhawk in this week, so nothing for me.  I also need to get some pre season kickoff Madden in.  Anyone want to beat up on the Texans?  Gamertag's in the sig.

Going to look into Worms, and maybe Airborn, but then again I just beat Bioshock, and want to replay the first 2 halos to prepare for 3, so don't know if I really want another shooter.

Would it be to much to ask if some one can sum up the story in Halo so far?  I really don't remember what the hell is going on.

lone soldier takes on a metric fuck ton of aliens and the second game really doesn't have an ending but it does have the plant from Little Shop of Horrors.

for a more detailed summation there's the Halopedia.

Mercury Meltdown Revolution [Wii] is my next game purchase and yet again another week where it's not being released; just where the hell is it? With it still missing from store shelves I won't be buying anything this week.
Another good week for VC releases tempts me, but I still haven't downloaded some of the already released classics. Damn the list of SNES and Genesis RPGs for the VC is getting decent! I have to resist Landstalker for now as it may eventually show up on Gametap.

See, I'll go weeks without buying anything, but when I do I ususally end up with three or four games in one shot. Helps make the non-buying weeks/months go by a little better.
