Check it out below and don't forget the list of all the new games that drop this week for every game system from [kwlink]Nintendo DS[/kwlink] to [kwlink]Xbox 360[/kwlink], [kwlink]Wii[/kwlink], [kwlink]PS3[/kwlink], [kwlink]PSP[/kwlink] and even for your PC.

Marvel Ultimate Battles Card Game Announced!

Upper Deck, the folks who make the [kwlink]Yu-Gi-Oh![/kwlink], [kwlink]World of Warcraft[/kwlink] and [kwlink]Vs. System[/kwlink] card games have a new one coming - Marvel Ultimate Battles! It lets you play cards as your favorite superheroes, like [kwlink]Iron Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]Spider-Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]The Hulk[/kwlink], Captain America and more. You'll be able to battle with your [kwlink]friends[/kwlink] with a fast, easy to learn game! It drops in April 2008 with Iron Man and The Hulk 48-card [kwlink]Starter Decks[/kwlink] or nine-card Booster Packs.

Operation Smile Charity

Hasbro's releasing the new Operation Rescue Kit board game on its 25th anniversary and they're also doing a special charity drive to help the Operation Smile kids medical charity! They have special events all over [kwlink]North America[/kwlink] where you can get your picture taken with [kwlink]celebrities[/kwlink]. But, you can also help right now. Just head over to and click on the Oxygen Pump Button to get Hasbro to donate $0.25 more to the charity.

Sony's Ripping You Off With the PS3

Remember how the new, cheaper [kwlink]PS3 doesn't play PS2 games?[/kwlink] Well, it could, it just needs Sony to add a program to it. And it's a program they already have so it would be super easy. But they won't. Why not? Because they want you to buy [kwlink]PS3 games[/kwlink] and they figure if they make it so you can't play [kwlink]PS2 games[/kwlink], you will. They're doing it on purpose. That sucks.

    I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE knows that testingcheatsenabled true code. If you didn't, right here fellas. But there's MORE. Let me tell ya.  NOTE: Some of these only work for PC. I'm not sure about console as I've never actually tried.  familyfunds [lastname] [moneyamount]- get as much money  as you want.   freerealestate- enables you to buy ANY house you want (must be done in map mode otherwise it's useless)  Buydebug- lets you buy ANYTHING at all.  enableLlamas [on/off]- this one is personally my favorite due to how funny it is. It gives a message saying "Llamas enabled."  constrainFloorElevation [true/false]- allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, Sims and other structures on them.  Know some more?

    My favourite Pokemon is probably Magikarp, as when it evolves it is UNIMAGINABLY strong. I have one in Pokemon Red!
