(ARGH. Somehow this never got published. So here it is, a couple weeks late.)

I’m a little behind getting this month’s releases out, so some of these games have already come out but March is a big month with the launch of the Nintendo 3DS.

  1. I’m getting a Black 3DS, MAYBE Pilotwings and that’s it for that system. I also have Dragon Age 2 (excellent!) and Okamiden will be in my hot little hands next week. My friends found an EB that put it on the shelf this week and they’re already loving it. Sigh.

    There are a bunch of PSP games that interest me but I still have Tactics Ogre, along with almost all of the big titles from last year, to play through, so I’m in no rush to add more to that pile of shame.

    I will also get Yakuza 4 at some point but probably not until early April after my tax return comes in. I still haven’t sat down to play through Yakuza 2!

    • I’m still waffling on the 3DS. Some days I want it, some days I think I can wait. Right now I think I’m going to pick up Homefront and wait and see on the 3DS. The kids play the DS much more than I do at this point. My poor DQIX game is gathering dust while I play on the 360.

  2. I pre-ordered DoW:Retribution way back in January. Like it so far.

    Snagged Pixel Junk Shooter 2 last week.

    Nothing else this month, but will get the new LEGO SW game when it gets a little cheaper.

    • I had no idea how quickly LEGO would ensnare my boy, but it has both hooks in deep. Not that I’m complaining, but wow that happened fast. He turns 6 on Friday and I know of at least 4 LEGO sets he’s getting, including one Star Wars set. I should probably see how LEGO video games take to him. He’s still pretty enamored with Pac Man CE DX

      • Listen.

        LEGO is our house. It’s expected for birthdays and Christmas (including mine).

        They are everywhere, and it is wonderful. My brother and I used to keep the kits separate, but my two boys throw them all together after building the kit once. This then frees them up to make some pretty AMAZING stuff.

        We were never like that as kids, being anal on losing pieces and instructions. Last December I did something bold. I took all my kits and sorted the pieces out into trays and ziploc bags. It was enlightening. I can now “imaginatively” build like my boys.

        The six month old, however, is starting to get around so now it’s “training to pick them up” time.

  3. I’ll do the same with Lego Star Wars 3. I’ve never paid more than $20 for any Lego games.
