I've been teasing buying the God of War bundle, just because I'm such a big fan of Kratos. But as you mentioned, the games are at a trickle, and I've heard word of another re-design, with potential internal memory. So I'm holding off.
Ninja Gaiden 2. I have never before tried so hard to like a game, and have the game itself resist me so much in that endeavor. I have NG Black downloaded on my 360, and that game almost never feels cheap. But in NG2, I'm constantly feeling the "this is such utter bullshit" vibe. The line between challenge and frustration is a fine one, and this game crosses it too much, imo. Frustration is not fun.
Giant Bomb, right now, is getting mugged by the internet, literally. It could be a rough few days, and it's going to get worse as the day goes on and more people realize it's up and open. Don't be shocked to see forum downtime, maybe even site downtime. This is an open beta, it's sort of a "fix on fail" kind of thing.
They should do an episodic release on XBL and PSN, that would be much less risky. (it was originally designed to be episodic anyway) they could even simply reuse the Shenmue 2 engine. Just so long as it's done. Also, this game REALLY needs to be an Xbox Original.
I picked up Batman Begins on Blu to gear up for it, and I'm seeing it today. I haven't heard anything bad about, and I'm all geared up for some good dark detective action. I've even added Batman back to my comic pile lately with Batman: Gotham After Midnight. (excellent stuff, btw)
Metal Gear Solid 4, (replay for the second time) Rayman, (downloaded PSone classic, and a darn good one too) and Lost Odyssey. Also, as usual, digital crack. Or as it is better known, Pixel Junk Monsters.
Less than two hours five days of the week at least, work is a pretty heavy constant, and a lot of times when i get home, I just get on the laptop, eat some dinner, browse around, and go to bed. Makes the fact that I have three twenty plus hour JRPGs on my 360 kind of silly, as I doubt at this rate I'll beat any of them. But at least it's the opposite of the old problem of beating my games too quickly because I had too much spare time.
