Games | Weekly Game Releases | Week of December 18th, 2007: After the past few months, December's lacking. Still. You can thank the industry's lemming-like habit of clumping all good releases together into the same narrow windows. It's like they want to fail, or something.

Game of the week | NiGHTs: Journey Of Dreams

One of the best* games ever released for Saturn sees a sequel plop down on the Wii... a good ten years after NiGHT's original release. Fly around as a little purple jester picking up crap, and I think you shoot bosses, or something. This game will destroy your last claim to masculinity.

Also appearing in stores

MX vs. ATV Untamed
For the Cabela crowd. Pick your favorite off road vehicle and race them. Again. For the umpteenth time. And yet after all these years, they still haven't been tamed. That is feral dedication.

Indianapolis 500 Legends
We... we're going to be honest with everybody. We're not entirely sure anybody cares about this game, but with the 17.5 kajillion DS systems being sold this holiday season, somebody will buy this game. It is... inevitable. Won't they be disappointed. They should've just picked up Mario Kart.

Also, it's coming out on the Wii. The new Nintendo: home of shovelware.

Warhammer 40K: Squad Command
Not really being fans of the Warhammer series ourselves, this one managed to slip beneath our radar. From the handy trailer available at Amazon, though, we surmise that this must be an RTS-style game for the DS. Possibly. To our knowledge, though, the cart label does not consist of colorless outlines begging to be painted by players. Talk about not knowing your audience, geez.

PS3 HDMI Cable and USB Cable
Nightmare scenario: Little Billy opens up his PS3 on Christmas morning and gets ready to play Ratchet & Clank. But when Little Billy goes to hook up his brand new high-definition console to his daddy's high-definition TV, Billy sees that the system only comes with standard composite cables. Billy starts to scream at his daddy for not loving him anymore, and then grows up to be angry at the world. He later kills himself.

Now, if you don't want your child to die because YOU forgot to get them HDMI cables for their new toy, then you need to get this overpric--- er, high-quality HDMI cable. What do you mean, Sony should have done that themselves? Whatever.

Weekly WTF? | My Sanity

Christmastime in retail-land has made me a bitter husk of an individual, and I've only been doing it for 6 years. I feel like this cat.

Maybe we should take part in that Fun Club thing...

Talk about how crappy these games are!
