on the shelves

05/02: Iron Man [gamestats] - not so good. IGN's sub hub: "It's games like this that make Tony Stark drink." Repetitive and not that interesting. Typical video game based on a movie.

05/06: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (game of the year re-release) - you get the first map pack for free, in exchange for paying full price for a game 7 months old.

in the store

Downloadable Game

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil ($10) - didn't this already come out? And was on XBox months ago? And wasn't much good?

Add on Content

PixelJunk Monsters Encore ($6) - 15 new levels on a new map. I finally got around to the demo for this thing, and it's an okay strategy game. Feels like it should be a PC game.

- Rock Band {$2, or all for $5.50}
* "Date with the Night" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
* "It Hurts" by Angels & Airwaves
* "The Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" - Fall Out Boy

Previously released, but cut to $1 until 05/15
* "CrushCrushCrush" by Paramore
* "Rock N Roll Band" by Boston
Are they testing out the price point?

- Guitar Hero III: Muse Track Pack ($6.25 for all 3)
* "Exo-Politics"
* "Stockholm Syndrome"
* "Supermassive Black Hole"

Game Demos
* HAZE
* Bourne Conspiracy
* GRID
I wanted to try these demos, but my TV is not working. For real.

After seeing preview videos for Ironman, I was stoked. It looked so good, but damn am I glad I waited.

I had no idea Gameinformer did a cover piece on this. I just know the trailer in question smashed me in the face like a sack of awesome. It looks like Gears of War on the ground and Crimson Skies/Warhawk in the sky.
