Calendar Man – Week of 1/23

No High Scores

Once again we have a week where you can count the number of releases on one hand. One, one fingered hand in this case, as the only thing I can see of note is The Sims 3: Master Suite Stuff. Granted, I’m not sure furniture for the Sims can be considered noteworthy, but in the realm of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

Don’ worry, next week we have some Final Fantasy something or other to look forward to and then we’re into sweet, sweet Ferbruary with all of the guns and tentacles and high altitude snowboarding.

Until then, let’s just focus on the deals…

Toys R Us – Get a free wireluess sensor bar with the purchase of a Wii. Buy a Skylanders starter pack and get a free Skylanders figure.

Brandon loves games, which shouldn't be a surprise given where you're reading this. He has written for GameShark, The Escapist and G4, and made them all less relevant as a result.

  1. Crap means saving money for the difficult February month.

    I already have Kingdom of Amalur, Revelations, and Tales of the Abyss on pre-order. And I was not intending to get Amalur, damn that demo!

  2. Yeah, I have to admit that I threw Final Fantasy XIII back into my PS3 and started replaying it to try to remind myself what was going on in that game before next week.  It’s not really making me more excited for the next game, but I can’t help myself.

  3. “Get a free wireless sensor bar with the purchase of a Wii” – Spelling correction included, so it’s not a true quote – sue me.

    Doesn’t the Wii come with a wireless sensor bar?  Or is it an extra accessory maybe?

    Sorry if I’m asking a dumb question, but I’m not sure how an after-market sensor bar would be better than what they provide out of the box, aside from maybe staying where it’s supposed to a little better.

  4. The Wii that I have has a sensor bar, but it is wired and not wireless.  The wireless one would actually probably make my girlfriend happy – she hates all of the wires.

  5. Yeah, I was thinking wireless on the front end.


    I’ll now consider myself served.  Thanks for clearing that up!
