World of Warcraft:
Biggest news is the release date for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion has been set by Blizzard. The release date is November 13th, 2008! Onward to Northrend!
The PTR is open for patch 3.0.2. This patch would be similar to the patch which came out right before the release of the Burning Crusade expansion. The patch will allow you to use the new talent trees, and some of the new features which will be coming out with the WotLK expansion.
Then general consensus of the PTR: “Everyone is doing way too much damage”
Rock Band 2: If you enjoyed the first, you will enjoy the 2nd. No huge upgrades other than online World Tour mode. It is pretty much $60 for 80 new songs to play with. With the prices of the songs you can download at around $2-5, this a bargain. Another huge plus is that you can import all the songs from the first Rock Band too!
Star Wars: Force Unleashed: Pretty much is Ninja Gaiden with Star Wars characters- minus the difficulty and refined combat system. A high fun factor, and great storyline. Though I am a bit biased towards anything Star Wars.
