A number of games jump out at me for the next fortnight. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow looks decent as does Enslaved: Odyssey to the West a bit more.

I may finally get around to playing Devil Kings on PS2 with the release of Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes.

This coming week is the release of PlayStation Move along with a few launch titles.

The game I’m most interested in is Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions along with what seems to be a beat-’em-up in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

If you’re into shoot-’em-ups Konami has you in mind with the release of Otomedius Excellent. Now if we could just get these types of games on both systems.

The big release of these two weeks will be Halo: Reach and I’m sure Dreamcast lovers will be all over the downloadable version of Sonic Adventure.

Out of all of the games listed below it’s undeniable which one will outsell them all. That’s obviously Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Even with that said, there’s been quite a bit of talk about Dragon Age: Origins during the last few weeks leading up to its release.

My interests lie with Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier and Need for Speed: Nitro on the DS.
