Gamewatch: Fallout New Vegas, Kirby's Epic Yarn, DJ Hero 2

Fallout New Vegas

Ready, set, Fallout New Vegas (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) lands tomorrow, a proper standalone sequel to Fallout 3 that skips cross-country from the urinal-colored husk of Washington D.C. to a urinal-colored preserve in the Mojave Desert. The lure here, aside from publisher Bethesda's quality stamp and seal, is lead designer Chris Avellone, the guy behind Planescape: Torment. ETA: 10/19

Clocking in with 100% fewer radiation sickness victims, Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii) sees Nintendo's dimpled blob transformed into a piece of thread and flung into an "unraveling" world. Stitch it back together as an off-road truck, robotic tank, submarine, and whatever else yarn spins into under Nintendo's whimsical fingers. ETA: 10/18

I confess I never tried DJ Hero, but if turntablism's your thing, DJ Hero 2 (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) adds mix-specific freestyle effects samples and no longer penalizes you for fast-scratching as long as you're in the groove. Sure, Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" may be the worst thing to happen to western pop since "Ice Ice Baby," but then there's Adamski's Tiesto Remix of Seal's "Killer" to make up for it. ETA: 10/19
