New Release Rundown ~ Week of 5/23/2010

This is a great week for racing fans, as we see games we’ve waited a while for hit store shelves like Blur and ModNation Racers. I won’t say it is written in stone or anything, but I think Sony’s new kart racer might give a certain Mario-themed game in the same genre a run for its money. However, Mario has much bigger fish to fry this week, with the much-heralded release of Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii.

If you’re a sports fan, UFC 2010 Undisputed is coming ¬†your way and, for fans of RPGs you have Atlus’ Hexyz Force for the PSP, which I’ve heard is some pretty sweet old-school RPG action. Last, but not least, I have to nod my hat at the latest EVE Online expansion, Tyrannis, which has been delayed a little bit, but will be available for download this week.

All in all a pretty solid week as we head into the summer months. Check out the full list below and let us know what is tickling your fancy this week!
