Looking forwards to Mercenary Kings today EU, and probably get the Killzone Insurgent Pack. Sadly Mercenary Kings has been delayed in Australia and New Zealand as it awaits a rating.

Hmmm I am thinking I might give MLB: The Show a try. I have never played one of those games in fact the last Baseball game I played was on the SNES and I am itching to play a baseball game and I heard that these are some of the best.

Glad the Unlimited characters for Blazblue costs so little compared to the $7 for them in Continuum Shift. Already grabbed mine and got to work on impossible combos in training mode.
