    Best week in ages though to be honest there isn't anything that I am desperate to play there are still some games that'll keep me busy this week.

    <!--coloro:#483D8B--><span style="color:#483D8B"><!--/coloro--><u><b>Read to know when a game could be dumped:</b></u>
    These dates are what retailers say is out unless stated otherwise, sometimes they <b>make </b>dates up for pre-ordering purposes so not all can be trusted. These dates could also be <b>"shipping dates"</b> which usually means that that's the date when games get <b>shipped </b>to stores so a game could either be in stores on that day or <b>after</b>.

    Some games may get <b>delayed </b>some others not listed may appear but at the moment of posting these are correct. Also just because a game is released in stores it <b>doesn't</b> mean that they'll appear on our internets but NA titles usually appear on our 'nets Wednesday night UK time.

    Have patience and remember scene releases are not a right but a privilege.<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    Level-5 are one hell of a game making machine, this year alone they have eight NDS titles, one PSP and one PS3 game. Yet all of these games are said to be quality projects! Here is the second of four Proffessor Layton titles (which was released in 2007) and its a highly sought after title on the forum.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->The sequel to Professor Layton and the Mysterious Village, this title focuses on a box which kills its openers. Layton goes in to investigate and solve the mystery before it's too late.

    Puzzle master Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, have stumbled upon another mystery. It's up to them to navigate their way through numerous puzzles to determine who – or what – caused the death of Professor Layton's mentor, Dr. Schrader. Was it the mysterious Elysian Box, rumored to kill all who open it? Professor Layton and Luke find a clue that begins their adventure: a train ticket for the Molentary Express.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    Expect more of the same but to be honest people were wanting that anyway.

    While I would like Marvelous/Natsume to concentrate on one HM game at a time it still could be worth a play.

    I'm guessing that the TV show is an Americanised version of Harry Potter only for the teenage spoilt girl crowd. In my day we had Sabrina The Teenage Witch and that was awesome plus Melissa Joan Hart was sexy and that cat was funny.

    <b>Region</b> Japan <b>Genre:</b> Survival Horror/RPG/Platformer
    <b>Developer:</b> Deep Silver <b>Publisher:</b> Square Enix

    A surprise sequel seeing that the first game did quite poorly in Japan. For those who don't know the first game was a survival horror type game and it ripped Ringu off a bit, though instead of a cursed video that caused the viewer to die after 7 days, it was a cursed RPG game that caused the player to die after 7 days. This time around there are two cursed games. One is a RPG and the other is a platformer. As the player you must find a way to break the curse.

    Now its a series there could be a chance of release outside of Japan. It'll be a shame if we dont get a version as it looks like something that I could really enjoy. Make it so Square Enix or at least let Atlus or Xseed publish it instead.

    I am a little weary about this but I am hoping for a solid title. The Europe release was dumped just a couple of hours ago so grab it if its what you're after. I included it in next weeks releases as I missed it last week and that I already wrote the NA version up anyway. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

    Nintendo in amazing offer shocker! Yeah its odd, you'd think a company like Nintendo would have released the two Prime wiimakes seperatley to make more money but not only are they both on this disc, so is the last game! Plus its packaged nicely too...why can't they do this more often?
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->The amazing Metroid Prime saga is compiled in this three-pack of games for the Wii.

    METROID PRIME -- Samus Aran, a bounty hunter by trade, chases down the evil Space Pirates in the first game of the series. Their intention is to use a genetic mutagen called Phazon to create a super army and take over the universe. While the installments in the series before have never been home to deeply involving storylines, Metroid Prime breaks the shell to offer up one of the most intriguing and read-worthy sagas yet.

    METROID PRIME 2: ECHOES -- Travel to a planet torn into light and darkness. Hunted by a mysterious entity and a warring race called the Ing, Samus Aran must explore the light and dark worlds of this doomed planet to discover secrets and augment her suit's weapons and abilities. And now, for the first time in the history of the celebrated Metroid franchise, up to four players can battle each other as they search for weapons, grapple across ceilings, and turn into Morph Balls to make their escapes.

    METROID PRIME 3: CORRUPTION -- The Galactic Federation's Base Sector Zero is under attack by Space Pirates. Samus must boot up the generator to restore the defense systems. But at the end of her path, someone awful is waiting for her. The war initiated by Dark Samus and the Space Pirates rages across many planets as they attempt to corrupt each with Phazon seeds. Players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to explore alien landscapes, hunt for weapons and information, and destroy the seeds. Saving the planets from Corruption isn't enough, though. Eventually, players must take down Samus' mortal enemy, Dark Samus.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    This title is essential to those who love Metroid but have yet to play a Prime game (Hunters doesn't count, that was more FPS then adventure). Metroid Prime is pretty much Metroid, only in a first person view and the transfer into the 3D realm is as good as Ocarina of Time. Prime 2 may have been more of the same and Prime 3 may have been slightly less deep but they are still great games and Prime 3 shows how well Wii controls can work.

    <b>Region</b> North America <b>Genre:</b> Fish Murder
    <b>Developer:</b> Natsume <b>Publisher:</b> Natsume

    Another fishing game, this time from Natsume and is part of the popular Reel Fishing series that was on PSX, PS2 & PSP. There was going to be DS & Dreamcast entries but those were cancelled.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Reel Fishing: Angler's Dream aims to fulfill the need of every gamer who has fished or who has wanted to cast their first line. Featuring a 3D fishing engine, lifelike fish and soothing environmental sounds, Reel Fishing will put players on the banks of pristine lakes, raging rivers and tropical oceans filled with the biggest fish around. Players will be able to keep their best catches in aquariums, take care of them and then release back into the wild. Get expert advice from the wise Fishing Master as players try to become a master themselves.

    Players can try their hand at lure, bait and fly fishing as the Wii Remote, acts as the rod, while the Nunchuk is used as the reel. With a variety of realistic stages, tons of fresh and salt water fish, and over a 100 pieces of tackle, players can really make their fishing experience their own. Special Boss Fish will appease even the most veteran anglers, while players can also take a more competitive approach to fishing with the Versus Mode featuring multiplayer gameplay with 1-4 family or friends.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Nothing looks really interesting to me. I didn't like any Metroid Prime games and Professor Layton isn't my genre at all. Cosmo Cops may be of little interest but not enough to get me excited.

    YES YES YES!!! The first professor layton is by far my most favorite game on the DS. I loved every aspect about it. The art style, the music, the puzzles, everything. I even got my parents into it a bit. I cannot wait at all for the game to come out.

    Oh yeah, if they made MP2 on the Trilogy disc have Wi-Fi, I'd consider it. I thought the multiplayer was good on it and could have been the must-have FPS game for the Wii. Conisdering people are torn on most FPS shooters on the Wii, they blew a huge oppurtunity.

    GoGo Cosmic Cops looks great! I think it'll actually play more like a cross between Mr. Slime and Mega Man after seeing that trailer. You appear to stretch out the sticky hookshot thing by touching your character and dragging it to where you want it to go, just like you did with Mr Slime's arms/feet.

    Definitely checking that out.

    Metroid Prime Trilogy and Professor Layton both don't sound like a must-have for me.
    I enjoyed Metroid Prime 3 a bit, but I don't get why it was hyped so much.
    And since the trilogy is gonna be like 4GB, even when scrubbed, I won't get a hold of it anytime soon...
    I didn't like the first Layton, so the second isn't that important to me.

    Thanks for the great write-up again!
