Sept 15th - 21st


Am I the only one really looking forward to The Temple of Elemental Evil this week? The video on Fileplanet shows a good nine minutes of gameplay with commentary done by a few guys working on the game and it really got my motor running. Aside from that we have quite a few solid titles coming out this week, I'm sure some of them will tickle your fancy.

The BIG Games

Homeworld 2
Platform: PC
Ships: Sept 16th
Price: $44.99

The Buzz: The demo played out much like the original game with improved graphics and (in my mind) a better interface. Fans of the original who wanted more should look no further.

Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy
Platform: PC
Ships: Sept 16th
Price: $49.99

The Buzz: More of what you loved about Jedi Knight 2 and less of what you hated. Saber fighting, new saber styles and some new online features are all you need for a good time!

The Simpsons Hit & Run
Platform: Xbox, PS2, GC
Ships: Sept 16th
Price: $49.99

The Buzz: Grand Theft Auto meets the Simpsons, that's about all I know about it. Rental.

Temple of Elemental Evil
Platform: PC
Ships: Sept 16th
Price: $49.99

The Buzz: The nine minute video from Fileplanet (check the main page) flipped a switch in my head and now I'm fully prepared to kill you and everyone you hold dear to get my hands on it.

Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes
Platform: Xbox
Ships: Sept 17th
Price: $49.99

The Buzz: Along the same vein of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance with sexier graphics. Wait for reviews.

- Certis


I want all of these, save the Simpsons. Unfortunately, I'm just stuck wanting. Damn school expenses.

Certis are you taking orders to go?  If so I'll take a ToEE meal with a supersized JA and a side of D&D:Heroes.

ooh ooh, add another copy of ToEE to fang's order and send it my way

I know ToEE is going to rock, but I haven't heard any real buzz on D&D Heroes.. I'll wait for the reviews before I pick up that one.

Hey!  The un-abashed Simpsons fans take umbrage to that remark!


On a similar note, I have heard good things about this game.  It's said to be a large environment for Simpsons fans to explore.

Gamespot gave the Gamecube version a solid 8.something so I expect fans of The Simpsons (I'm one of them) may want to consider a buy. For me, there are just too many other cool games out right now to buy a GTA knock-off, Simpsons or no.

I'll rent it for sure though.

I've heard it's a very big environment and both Gamespot and IGN have given it 8+.  At least 15 hours of gameplay plus a bunch of side missions have this probably going as a buy for me.
