May 3rd - 7th

I'm doing stand in for Certis, it seems he is getting his legs waxed and can't be bothered to do anything for the website. I secretly think he did it because this week sucks. He probably had The Week Ahead ready to go and said "You know what, it'd be hilarious to make Pyro do it this week because it was so hard to find enough games to post about." Then he hit the delete key, giggling like a schoolgirl, until he realized the computer wasn't on. He probably turned it on and deleted the file, maybe he just smashed his machine with a hammer. There isn't any solid information one way or another. Still, I want to believe.

The big game this week is Rallisport Challenge 2 for the XBox. Reviews seem good and though it's the standard $49.99, if you're into racing you might want to check it out.

On DVD this week, we have The Last Samauri, Foo Fighters: Everywhere But Home and even some Reboot action going on.

It is so nice to have an American do The Week Ahead. Thank you.

I think Pyro should do this more often.....

Mmmm... Rallisport Challenge 2. Please let it be the tender, juicy treat I envision it as.

If La Pucelle : Tactics is half the game Disgaea was I will be in gaming heaven.

All that and more. I played the heck out of the first one and this one does everything 200% better.

Warlords Battlecry III is coming out this week as well.

I've given up on Battlecry. I've always been more TBS than RTS anyway and WB3 just seems to be more of the same, just with a couple extra races and units.

Anybody know anything about Shadow Vault or Future Tactics? EA has them coming out this week, but I can't find anything but sketchy previews beyond the homepages.

Sometimes I just don't understand your sense of humor Alien. First a crack about Sanjuro without pants at my wedding and now this. Are you in love with me? I mean, that's cool and all but I'm engaged man, it would never work.

I think Pyro should do this more often.....

ME TOO! Oh man, he is WAY better at this than I am. I vote Pyro does it every week.

You fool mateo, you're playing into his evil plans!

Are you in love with me?

Yes. And I'm not the only one.

How could you not mention Spartan? ;___; You know, Spartan. Available here for only $30! ;___;

That says it ships on the 25th of May, ^_______^

Soldner and Samurai Warriors. The latter i'll pick up, any good word on Soldner Spunior?

...

Er... I did realize that. Also, I especially didn't only look at the first number in the date and forgot that the English date system is MM/DD/YYYY whereas ours is DD/MM/YYYY for a second!

So, the joke's on you! Somehow!

Well, due to having a rather weak PC meanwhile I didn't try out the public beta, but I guess you've seen the general reaction. Based on what I've read I wouldn't recommend picking it up in the first week. Wait for more feedback and Wings ironing out some of the bugs.

Soldner turned out to be a bust if you ask me. Maybe they can patch it up or give it a completely new engine.

Have there been any sightings of RSC2? I'm trying to figure out if I should go look for it today or tomorrow.

Samurai Warriors = Dynasty Warrrors with Samurai.

If you love DW Im sure you are going to get SW. I skipped out on DW3x, DW4 and DW4x so I might get SW since its been a while since my DW fix. Although I did get Mystic Heroes which was a more spell oriented DW that I found I liked better. Oh man, if only CoH went just one notch further and had power animations as awesome as DW... *drools*

If anyone picks up the Transformers game, I'd be interested in knowing your thoughts. I saw it on X Play last night, and it looked pretty cool.
