I would love to buy Kingdoms of Amalur and Batman: Arkham City on both PS3 and Xbox 360.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PS3.
The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition for the Xbox 360.

Although I will doubt I will get any of them them in anytime soon though.

In an uncharacteristic moment of actually being willing to spend money, I went out and bought an Xbox 360. It came bundled with Halo: Reach (which'll probably be all the Halo I'll ever need...I enjoyed the previous games when I played I found them all to be very samey) and Fable 3 (don't know anything about this series...is it any good?). I also picked up Arkham Asylum and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and intend to track down all three Mass Effect games (in fact, doing so was one of the big reasons for buying the console to start with).

I've only started Deus Ex so far, but after the first couple levels it feels like a worthy successor to the original. My only gripe is that they're really stingy with the ammo, which isn't a big deal if you build a stealth character but could make life very difficult if you decide to invest mainly in combat augmentations.

I thought it was alright: perhaps as good as the originals, with some nice new bits, but it didn't hook me as well as I thought it would.

Using some trade-ins I bought the collectors edition of Prototype 2 on 360 ans because for some reason I've taken an interest in Assassins Creed I went out and bought AC 2 and Brotherhood while they were on 2 for 1 special.

Traded in a bunch of stuff to a new, locally-owned game store and picked up a slew of titles: Civilization Revolution (PS3), Prince of Persia (360), Fable II (360), and Sonic Colors (Wii).

I'm thoroughly surprised at how much I'm enjoying Sonic Colors. Given Sonic's recent track record of mediocre-bad games, I heard this one was actually fun. And it is! I think I'll finish it pretty quickly, though, since I only have 3 more areas to take out. But it's been a great return to a style similar to the Genesis days with branching pathways, a good sense of speed, and a story that's kind of humorous and not super annoying like in other recent titles. And you play just as Sonic. Not Tails, or Knuckles, or Big the Cat... just Sonic. And no transformations into anything idiotic. It surprises me that it took Sega this long to get back to a normal game.

The other games are on my queue to play; I have played some Prince of Persia, which has also been a fun diversion from the heavy RPG's I've been tackling lately.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for a fiver off some bloke.

I'm sure its not the best thing in the world, but growing up I quite liked sports games and the variety in the events. I was well into titles like David Crane's Decathlon, (interestingly, David Crane also did the first Transformers game).

Umm, California Games, World Games and other stuff. Loved it, not that I'm sporty at all!

A friend of mine gave me a code for Bastion through Steam.

Great game.
No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Sage (X360), Dragon's Dogma (PS3) and Max Payne 3 (PS3) came in the mail during the week.

I also picked up Resistance: Burning Skies, which is a Vita game, although I don't have a PS Vita yet.

Can't go wrong with this one.
