    Yeah I know I forgot to do last weeks and the week before, busy man is busy you but I've done this week...my my what a lot of games for Wii & DS owners!

    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-->

    Different to what the Wii is getting, DS owners will get something very familar to the PC classics "Sid & Als Incredible Toons" and "The Incredible Machine".
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->The Rabbids first comedy-adventure will take them to the moon or bust! Those crazy Rabbids have an infallible plan: collect all the human stuff they can find, heap it onto a giant pile and literally climb home to the moon. But not so fast! The Humans revolt, unleashing the Verminators whose only objective is to exterminate the Rabbids. Rabbids Go Home game features include:

    * The Rabbids First Puzzle-Adventure Game: The Raving Rabbids, using a shopping cart, will have to solve the puzzle of each level and collect as much stuff as they can to build a giant pile to their home… the moon!
    * Same storyline as the Wii version, different gameplay: The game features a true story mode, including hours of puzzle-based gameplay.
    * Stir up funny chain reactions in 150 brain teasers based on physics and funny Rabbids characters. The goal is to lead a shopping cart to the Toilets, collecting as many maximum resources as possible on the way.
    * 15 tricky levels to actually build a huge pile to the moon: Test your reflexes and your skills with the stylus!
    * Challenge mode: Four delirious challenge modes of 20 levels each, apart from the story mode and with different rules and objectives. Create hilarious situations by getting rid of those Raving Rabbids or making them fly! But be careful to not miss the TV show.
    * Unique art direction: Encounter a cast of colorful, oddball characters (humans, Verminators, dogs, etc.) and explore a remarkable parody of the modern world!
    * Exclusive level editor: Create your own puzzles and share them with your friends and the whole RGH community! Also download other players' puzzles for hours of additional gameplay.
    * My Rabbids (only on Nintendo DSi): Use the camera to take a picture, and customize it with funny Rabbid animations to make your friends laugh!<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    <b>My Wanted Level:</b> Will play it at work
    <b>Forum Wanted Level:</b> Those with only a DS will want it

    <b>Region:</b> North America <b>Genre:</b> Arcade Racer
    <b>Developer:</b> EA Montreal <b>Publisher:</b> Electronic Arts

    NFS hasn't been too bad on the DS but then it hasn't been too great.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Boasting a wholly unique look and feel, Need for Speed Nitro thrusts gamers into an exciting flurry of over-the-top fun, where each race track features big air jumps, smackable objects, shortcuts and more! Battle through the mayhem of aggressive cops, take corners at 150 mph, and own the competition on extreme tracks. In the heat of adrenaline-pumping competition, gamers must take risks on the road to build up Nitro boost and use it at the right moment to leave their rivals in the dust. They must also be ready to escape relentless cops with a propensity for road blocks. Players who activate their Heroic Driving moves at the perfect time can pull off over the top evasive tricks, outsmarting determined law enforcement in the process.

    Not only do you have access to an impressive list of licensed cars, but you can also attach a graphic to your ride that will overtake the world when triggers are activated, vibrantly telling the story of their racing dominance. You can also decide how you want to one-up your rivals by picking from a fresh and exciting batch of game modes that feature everything from traditional circuit races to new, over-the-top modes like Smack'm'all.

    * Ten Game Modes: Showcase racing prowess in a variety of fresh and exciting race modes including, Elimination (last place driver is eliminated at the end of every lap), Circuit (complete 3 laps, first one wins), Smack’m’all (smash objects in a limited time), Tag the World (achieve 100% tagging score in shortest amount of time) and many more!
    * Extreme Tracks— From the streets to the off-road to unexpected places like a rollercoaster, each track will feature big air jumps, smackable objects, shortcuts and more.
    * Battle to the Finish Line — Whatever the position in the race, players can still build up their nitro boost and use it at the perfect moment to take the lead. However, they can also be taken out by the cops at any time. Anything can happen right to the very last second.
    * Heroic Driving – Use the Nitro meter to dodge the cops or overtake rivals by triggering spectacular Heroic Driving Moves like jumping over cars or driving on two wheels.
    * Pick and Personalize Rides — Choose from over 30 licensed cars, ranging from modern to classic to exotics to tuner. Then customize them with pre-set colors and images.
    * Tag the World — Attach a graphic style to each car and rely on racing finesse to hit triggers scattered on the road. Once activated, the world will be marked with the unique graphic style, loudly proclaiming racing excellence.
    * Nitro-Charged Multiplayer— With WiFi, up to four players can take part in intense races, battling it out for victory. Even if they don’t own the game, several tracks, cars and game modes can still be shared.
    * World Tour Campaign — Take part in street races across six cities throughout the world, including Cairo and Dubai, to unlock new cars, tracks and challenges.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    As long as AI, tracks and controls are good we should be in for a treat. At least DS owners got something made for them, PSP owners sadly had to make do with a dumbed down version of Shift.

    <b>Forum Wanted Level:</b> A lot.

    <b>Region:</b> North America <b>Genre:</b> Free Roaming Action
    <b>Developer:</b> VD-Dev <b>Publisher:</b> Ubisoft

    Ubisoft to out do GTA (albeit with a lot less crime) with an all 3D free roaming adventure. It looks to be techinically the most advance DS game out there which no suprise as its by the unfortunatly named developerd VD-Dev who did the techincially impressive and actually good GBA titles V-Rally 3, Stuntman as well as the decent enough Asterix & Obelix XXL & Driv3r. They also did the classic Jim Power games as well as the pretty good GBC titles Smurfs' Nightmare & Loony Toons: Carrot Crazy. Its really good to see these developers back making games.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Dan Miles is a former underground street racer and new recruit in the Criminal Overturn Program (C.O.P.). Under the terms of the C.O.P., Dan has become a street detective working to protect New York citizens against large-scale threats. Working with his mentor, Detective Brad Winter, Dan is investigating a series of terrorist attacks in the city when Brad is falsely arrested, putting the investigation on hold. While trying to uncover the truth behind Brad's arrest, Dan goes undercover and returns to his life on the streets. Little by little he gets wrapped up in a deadly, widespread conspiracy and must work to prevent a potentially catastrophic attack on the city.

    * Experience the thrill of cruising the streets of New York City without any loading times! C.O.P. The Recruit features an open-world 3D experience running at 60 frames per second (FPS). The game's engine also allows for a wealth of detailed imagery, whether driving at 120 MPH or shooting your way through the gorgeous interior environments
    * C.O.P. The Recruit will allow gamers to experience all aspects of being a police officer recruit with 60 missions and over 20 hours of diverse gameplay. Get behind the wheel of some of the fastest cars around, and use the stylus to shoot down enemies and spy on terrorists
    * Experience a bustling, vibrant New York City, complete with pedestrians on the street, cars rushing to avoid traffic, and boats navigating the surrounding waterways of Manhattan. Explore the 6 square miles of the city and experience a wide variety of environments and climate conditions
    * As a recruit, you will have access to New York City's most powerful tools. Use your PDA to plan and launch a SWAT team assault through your DS system's microphone, set up road blocks, summon an ambulance, access the city's camera system to locate your targets, and much more<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    Yeah it looks amazing but lets face it, 3D on the DS in the past has been a pain and I hope that Ubisoft have a good control system that works and doesn't make you feel crippled. Could this outsell GTA:CW? Possibly seeing that game was a Mature rated title while 12 years old could buy this one.

    Guitar Hero on the DS is bad, its just stupid and the guitar grip makes you look like a little tard. The tracklisting is also pretty bad too. Much more pirate friendly is LEGO Rock Band which anyone with any DS model can play.

    This game is in direct competition with Band Hero which. The tracklisting is of course more "mainstream" friendly than previous RB/GH games and even then I probably only like 12 out of the 25 songs there. Still could be fun...I guess.

    Yet another Hero game from Activision and one that no one actually asked for, say what you like about Rock Band but at least they haven't milked the shit out of the franchise.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Band Hero delivers an explosive social gameplay experience with the addition of vocals and drums -- via an innovative new Drum Grip -- to the guitar and bass gameplay popularized by the Guitar Hero On Tour trilogy. Band Hero allows handheld gamers to choose the way they want to play in multiplayer mode with any instrument combination of guitar, bass, drums and vocals as they strum, drum and belt out some of today's most popular tracks across multiple genres of music, including rock, pop, alternative and punk.

    With the largest and most diverse set list in a Nintendo DS Lite offering to-date, Band Hero offers fans 30 master recordings from today’s top artists including: Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, The Killers, KT Tunstall, and Fall Out Boy. With new features players can enjoy anytime, anywhere, a brand new Rockstar Editor to fully customize your band members, No Fail mode and Stage Stunts, Band Hero changes the way games can be played on the road.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    Like with LEGO Rock Band this is very "Mainstream" friendly and there are probably 11 songs I might like...at a push...and one of those is already on GH5. Still I guess DS owners will want it. In the shops it comes with this crappy looking drum case thing but it only fits of DS Lite models which is stupid but then Activision probably doesnt care. Its such a shame that you cant choose the 30 songs you want from 65 that the console owners get but then again...blah blah etc.

    Ubisoft are going all out on this game, they see it as their own Mario Galaxy. While I really dobut it'll be anywhere near as good I am expecting a very good game of high quality.

    <b>My Wanted Level</b> Fairly high
    <b>GBAtemp Wanted Level</b> Fairly high, Wii owners are starved of this kind of racer that might actually be good.

    <b>Region</b> North America <b>Genre:</b> Puzzle Platformer
    <b>Developer:</b> Wayforward <b>Publisher:</b> Majesco Games

    Oh shit a racer that appears to have had a lot of effort put into it that ISN'T by Nintendo and ISN'T a dumbed down port of the 360/PS3/PC version!!
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Customize your car, take corners at 200 mph, and own your opponents. Need for Speed NITRO delivers the fun and exhilaration of high-speed racing with deep and challenging gameplay, where racing skills are not the only way to victory.

    Master advanced techniques such as building up boost by taking risks on the road, then use it at the right moment to take the lead. But don’t forget about the cops, who will do everything they can to disrupt the race. And for the ultimate bragging rights, impose your graphical style on the world when you lead.

    However you choose to race, never count on victory until you’ve crossed the finish line.

    * Own the World— When you’re in first place, the walls of the city become covered with your graphic style. Now everyone knows that you’re the one leading the pack.
    * Pick Your Ride— The style and spirit of the game are rooted in car culture, with 30 classic and modern licensed cars including muscles, exotics, tuners, and more.
    * Battle to the Finish Line— Increase other racers’ heat levels to sick the cops on them, manage car damage to maintain maximum speed, and build up nitro with skilled driving to take the lead. The race is never over until you cross the finish line!
    * Extreme Customisation— Trick out your car’s appearance using an incredibly deep yet intuitive customization system unlike anything seen on the Wii. Never before in a Need for Speed game have you had this much control over the look of your ride.
    * Coop World Tour Campaign— Take part in illegal street races across five cities to unlock new cars, parts, tracks, and challenges. Up to three players can also join you to play cooperatively. Plus, race on 15 tracks featuring traffic, jumps, canyons, and events.
    * Nitro-Charged Multiplayer— Up to four players can take part in intense races across seven race modes: Race, Team Race, Eliminator, Drag Race, Speed Cameras Challenge, Drift Challenge, and Time Attack Challenge.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    The framerate looks spot on, I just hope it plays well.

    <b>My Wanted Level</b> High, I really enjoyed the Arcade game
    <b>GBAtemp Wanted Level</b> Zero, they'll confuse it with shovelware

    <b>Region</b> North America <b>Genre:</b> Arcade
    <b>Developer:</b> SEGA <b>Publisher:</b> SEGA

    In my opinion SEGA can release updates to most of their arcade hits, and they've done a few already thathave worked out very well.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Jambo! Safari takes players on an action-packed African adventure of fun and excitement. Inspired by the classic 1990's arcade action title, these home games in the Jambo! Safari franchise reinvent the wild experience with modern graphics and deeper gameplay. As with the original, the new Jambo! Safari allows you to play as one of four safari park rangers, but this time they are fully customisable. With the ultimate aim of becoming a fully qualified ranger, players must take on high speed challenges and exciting rescue missions across the rich and varied free-roaming landscapes of the African Plains.

    Using one of the four customisable vehicles, including the licensed Land Rover Defender 90 and 110, rangers will need to ensure the animals in their park are healthy and happy. The vast range of Jambo! Safari missions include rescuing animals in need, diagnosing and treating them before releasing them back to the wild, wildlife photography, sight seeing adventures and even hot air balloon rides! Swinging the Wii Remote like a lasso and using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to drive through the vast levels of Jambo! Safari Ranger Adventure and will immerse players in a true safari experience on the Wii console. Alongside the single player adventure to become a ranger, Jambo! Safari Ranger Adventure will also contain a co-op mode enabling you to share certain missions with a friend. The party games can be enjoyed by up to four people, so take your pick between Ostrich Racing, Meerkat Madness and more safari style fun!<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    It could work very well but as I said before gamers may confuse this with shovelware, I hope that if this turns out as well as the arcade game that gamers will give it a chance.

    Nice to see a 4 player multiplayer too in Nitro, that's what's the Wii's all about!

    C.O.P looks like a great game, I really loved GTA CTW, hopefully I like this too. Although I doubt it, nothing beats GTA normally, doubt this game will do it.

    Really looking forward to Wire Way. I had a surprising amount of fun with Go Go Cosmo Cops, and this looks like it's doing a similar-type thing. I'll try a few of the others on that list, but I don't have high hopes. LucasArts seems to feel plenty comfortable walking around with their wang dang doodle dangling around when it comes to video games, and Ubisoft...well, there's not much I need to say on that front. But I'll try 'em.

    There seems to be no Sin and Punishment 2 on the list (yeah, it was already dumped, but I like Hadrian commentary). This is alarming.

    Good week for the DS though. Star Wars looks like a meh top-down shooter with awesome flight/vehicle sequences, which is a shame because Battlefront is an amazing series. I look forward to WireWay and COP.

    Really looking forward to play Wireway, it should be great. I'm also gonna try Band Hero (can't wait to see 3rd party "drums" for this) and NFS Nitro as well.

    By the way, Sideswiped got released and it hasn't been dumped yet, and apparently, nobody even noticed it [​IMG]

    I'm interested in COP, NFS Nitro and Star Wars for DS myself. Lego Rock Band, Band Hero and Wireway look OK too.

    Wow! 6 DS games I might like......I don't think there has ever been a single week with so many decent games releasing at the same time. I'd be willing to bet that at least a couple of them get pushed back.
