New Release Rundown ~ Week of 5/30/2010

It is shaping up to be a pretty lackluster week and I blame it all on Alpha Protocol. What was hyped up to be the “next big thing” in RPG shooter games (with a little espionage thrown in, a la Metal Gear Solid), seems to be a universal letdown, given the review scores popping up for it all over the place. Other than that, there are a few notable expansions and map-packs hitting this week, such as The Sims 3: Ambitions, Tropico 3: Absolute Power and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Resurgence Pack.

Yeah, that about sums up the week in new releases. We all know Joel is looking forward to America’s Next Top Model, but what are you all looking forward to? As usual, the whole list is after the break!
