It's beginning to look a lot like Call of Duty: Black Ops (PC, Xbox 360, PS3, DS, Wii), and if you're on the special list, you know what you're doing tonight around midnight. I dropped by my local GameStop earlier and the store manager said he had around 350 copies pre-ordered, but that the store across town was pushing 500, and that's in a smallish town of around 120,000. I can only imagine what the pre-order lists look like in L.A. and Manhattan. Employers and teachers, you know where all your missing can be found tomorrow. ETA: 11/9.
Remember the Kevin Butler "pew-pew-pew" commercial? Then you probably know about The Fight: Lights Out (PS3) a pugilist's dream come true for PlayStation Move (well, maybe...the early buzz on it's actually not so great). Throw punches, jabs, uppercuts and the like in a series of gritty grayscale arenas, all the while secure in the knowledge that you're probably a better boxer than Kevin Butler.
And the rest due this week, by platform.
