New Release Rundown ~ Week of 5.15.2011

A couple huge titles come out this week – but you knew that, right? Both L.A. Noire and The Witcher 2 are getting pretty excellent reviews and great reception from their respective circles of the gaming community. Let me tell you, the PC this week looks like an RPG-lover’s dream. The PS3 is still struggling, with its lack of downloadable titles and DLC, considering the PlayStation Store is still down and out for the count. Also, if you haven’t picked up Chrono Trigger with it’s DS remake a year or so ago, now’s your chance to nab it from the Wii Virtual Console! What are you going to pick up this week, anything on the list after the break?
