I'm all partyed out...

Seriously, do we need another party minigame collection on the Wii already? Granted, Mario is almost certainly the king with his Mario Party series, and the mere fact that it's on the Wii makes sure it's a long overdue overhaul, but Wii owners already know that the Wii is flooded with minigame collections, which don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. And honestly, while the game looks fun, history tells us there will be another 4 or 5 Mario Party games on the Wii in short succession, so I'll wait for a more definitive version (i.e. with some online support like downloadable content).

But something far more interesting is on the horizon this week. Shadowrun for the Xbox 360 & the PC, letting two fairly volatile sides collide for the first time. There just really is no in-between on the console vs. PC debate, people just believe one is the obvious choice (I personally go with consoles because you don't have to spend outrageous amounts of money every year to keep up). And the rivalry between FPS console gamers & PC console gamers is even worse. Will this solve that age old question? Probably not, because word on the street is that this is already a failed experiment at best, but it'll at least be interesting to check out.
