Was on vacation over the weekend - just got back today.
I note that Joystiq doesn't seem to have listings of the week's coming European retail releases. This makes the second week in a row. If this is going to be a trend, I will just skip the European releases as I don't think there's a huge audience here for them. Anyone who wants to is welcome to follow up my posts with the European releases once they've been announced.

With songs from two of my top 10 fave bands ever, remind me again why I don't have this?? (oh, yeah . . . I'm now 40) After I rake in some birthday cash today, that might not be a problem anymore, however.

07/03: Ninja Gaiden Sigma - getting good reviews. Days till Madden: 43. Though more relevantly, it's two weeks till NCAA and All Pro 2K come out. No games next week, maybe The Bigs will show up so I can play it and complain about it.
