Oh, man I forgot to donate....oh well at least I got a new hard drive...

*Cough* Shrek 2 *Cough*

I'm rather hopeful for the LOTR rpg, I think I'll have to give it a rent.

Halo 2 next week...

This LOTR game is an RPG? Oh! Shiny!

It IS tomorrow morning Certis. Get out of bed and come do a proper Week Ahead feature you lazy little brat!

Let's see, 8 CST is 9ESt, right? I'll still be in class! Actually, I'll be on the way home from class, but still, you get my meaning.

OK, I win something, will someone PM me? And I'm taking requests if I win the rig!

Looks like a single buy this week, only Axis and Allies. Has some neat features...

You forgot a triple-a title...Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault. It ships this week to escape Half-Life 2. Went gold last week, ships on the 2nd or 3rd.

*Edit* After further research I have discovered that only the special DVD directors version ships on the 2nd, the regular CD version ships on the 9th. It was recieved 1 review from Gamers Depot who gave it a 9/10.

Thankfully only Shrek 2 interests me on that list. I'll probably have to rent 3rd Age at some point, but I doubt I'll buy it.

Axis and Allies seems like it went through development and out the door awfully quickly . . .

The fact that Axis and Allies is so far away from what the board game was is enough to turn me off.

Why is there no review for Lord of the Rings yet? Isn't it out in a couple of days. None of the websites have reviewed it yet. Usually that is a bad sign for movies. The game does look good though.

Just started playing R&C II. I'll get R&C III on its inevitable "Greatest Hits" release too.

Can we just skips this week and move right on into the next?

Seriously. Like maybe somewhere into the area of the 9th? That would make me happy.

Yep.
