I am happy, I don't have the money to buy any arcade games this week since my 360 accessories are all dieing on me. Hopefully next week it's War World and SoR2

Okay, I've calmed down since my disappointment about puzzle fighter. I mean christ the game has already been reviewed in OXM and was 'supposed' to drop last month. But hey, I guess I could download gamerpics and themes while I wait.

Street Trace = whatever, I hate racing games and I hate skateboarding games so somehow they've combined the two. BUT they supported this site so I'll give them my $10, in the end doesn't matter if I like it as long as I buy it ;)

Space Giraffe = Rez. Least that's what it looks like to me and I like shooters so this will be a must buy at 400. But then again, I buy everything so I'm not the one they need to convince to buy it.

Next week is a definite Super Puzzle HD Remix... SoR 2 might come out though... I'm doubting War World because they usually don't release two 800 pt games in one week...
