First up: Rock Band 2! This time it's the game only for the PS3 and the bundle edition for the PS3 and 360. Sorry, but PS2 and Wii owners have to wait until next month to rock out with plastic instruments...again. Or until Guitar Hero World Tour next week. But why get that when Harmonix is so much better than Activision? Plus Rock Band 2 has one of my favorite songs of all-time, Teen Age Riot by Sonic Youth.

Next, Fable 2, the latest promise-a-thon from Peter Molyneux...and from the looks of things, it lives up to at least some of the promises he made. I have no experience with this series, so I can't say too much about it.

Far Cry 2 is also out this week. I've always wanted to play the first game, but have never got around to it. It looks pretty awesome and got some great reviews. Any insights here?

This week two former 360 exclusives make the move to PS3.First up is the critically acclaimed Bioshock. I've never played much Bioshock until the PS3 demo a few weeks ago, and it totally blew me away. I won't get this game right away, however, because I want to wait until it reaches the price level that the 360 version is at, which will probably be a month or two after Christmas. The other one is Eternal Sonata, which is actually not half bad for a JRPG (at least based on the demo).

Also coming out this week: Star Ocean: First Departure for the PSP (yet another Square remake), Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for the DS (even more Castlevania goodness), Midnight Club: Los Angeles on PS3/360/PSP (That OTHER game Rockstar makes!), Spider-Man: Web of Shadows on PS3/360/Wii/PSP/DS/PC/PS2 (The reviews are surprisingly good so far, and the game looks pretty intriguing), DDR Universe 3 for Xbox 360 (probably another shitty 360 installment), and Dead Space on the PC (DO NOT MISS THIS GAME!!!).

Phew. Exhausting list. Check back next week for the next installment of the Holiday 08 release list season.

DDRU3, "shitty" as it may be...  You know I'll be hitting it up in less than 6 months time.
 
@OatBob: Oh hell yeah!
 
Damn, that is a lot of shovelware coming from Nintendo. But I totally want a DS if Pass the Pigs is as awesome as the real Pass the Pigs game.
 
@NES_Rules: Wait, Pass the Pigs is based on something else? I had no clue!
 
Pass the Pigs?! Seriously?! I will buy that tomorrow!!
 
What the hell is up with this site and Pass the Pigs?!
 
I haven't got a clue what Pass the Pigs is, but I'm totally buying it right now as we speak.
 
Pass the Pigs is like a dice game, but you use little plastic pigs instead of dice. I used to play it with my grandma at her house all the time.
As always Wikipedia knows all about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pass_the_pigs

 
I had no clue. Thanks for filling me in.
 
@NES_Rules:Yeah, lol. There's more Wii games coming out than anything else yet only Spider-Man is put in bold...seems like a great bunch of games. Tongue

Bioshock was expected since long to be a PS3 game and that Star Ocean game....Square seems to make nothing but remakes lately. Have they lost inspiration to come up with new stories or something?
 
Is the new Midnight Club supposed to be any good?
 
@Alfador:
Average review is in the mid 8s.
 
Double Leaning Jowler!
 
I forgot all about master of the monster lair being released.  the idea of the game sounded rather interesting.
 
@Sirgin:

At least they're finally remaking a game that America didn't get.
 
@Rajaat the Warbringer:Hey, you're right, I didn't realise that. Just saw that Europe didn't get the original Star Ocean either so it somehow is a "new" game. Smiley
