July 19th - 25th

I donÂ't know about you but my blood is running hot with American Football fever! That may sound a bit odd coming from a resident of the (not currently) frosty north but there you have it. With ESPN NFL 2K5 shipping this Tuesday on the Xbox and PS2 for the sexy low price of $19.99 I think we have plenty of reasons to celebrate! If youÂ've never tried a Football game or havenÂ't for a few years this is a great chance to give it another shot. IÂ'd also like to give a front page shout out to Sudeki, one of the few RPGÂ's exclusive to the Xbox.

On DVD this week weÂ've got Starsky & Hutch, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, The Big Bounce and more!

Catwoman
Platforms: PC, Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, GBA
Price: $39.99
Ships: July 29th

The Buzz: This may not be saying much but it could be better than the movie.

Bujingai: The Forsaken City
Platform: PS2
Ships: July 20th
Price: $39.99

The Buzz: I can honestly say O havenÂ't even heard of this before. Looks like a 3rd person hack nÂ' slash sort of deal.

Crimson Tears
Platform: PS2
Ships: July 21st
Price: $39.99

The Buzz: Yet another 3D beat emÂ' up for the PS2 this week. Again, I got nothing.

Sudeki
Platform: Xbox
Ships: July 20th
Price: $49.99

The Buzz: The demo has generated some good buzz from those who werenÂ't expecting a turn-based RPG and some sharp words from those who were. It sounds like there may be some concerns about game length but weÂ'll wait and see.

I'll have ESPN and my kids want the Drama Queen movie. Can't wait to see how ESPN stacks up to Madden.

I'd be real interested in anyones take on Sudeki? Depending on how good ESPN is (real good from IGN's take) I may pass on Madden, but I doubt it :).

I'll be playing Full Spectrum Warrior. Just picked up my copy for 29.77 at Target. Now I see what the buzz is about; awesome game!

uh yeah... I'm getting that movie to..

for my kids..

yup.

IT's kind of hard to judge Sudeki by the demo. It was short and with out any explanation on what to do.

Sudeki's marketing seems more focused on the cleavage of its main character than on any merits the gameplay may have. I dunno about that one.

Sealab 2021 season 1 and Aqua Teen Season 2 come out as well!!

Cleavage sells. How else would you explain Bloodrayne?

Didn't we just assert we're not Midway's demographic?

Besides, they're not that big onscreen

Can't balieve they made a Catwoman game.

I, on the other hand, though a resident of the balmy and muggy south, am getting geeked up for the release of CBC Curling Cup 2005. I understand that this year, you have to play the ice gradations formed by previous stone passage.

Sealab and Aquateen rock. I have ATHF season 1 on DVD. Now that I am a day shift drone I don't get to watch Adult Swim as much as I'd like.

Don't feel bad I never watch it now unless I go to my parent's house, because I refuse to pay 40 dollars a month for essentially 2 or 3 television shows.:)

Given your avatar, you are obviously familiar with the better shows!
