New Release Rundown ~ Week of 8/29/2010

This week’s release lineup is pretty solid, considering some big titles we’ve been waiting on for a while are finally hitting, such as Valkyria Chronicles II and Metroid: Other M. We also have Behemoth’s awesome co-op game Castle Crashers, which has been out on XBLA for well over a year, finally making its way to the PSN. That is most definitely one to pick up if you haven’t played it yet! There’s also some other gems appearing in the wild, such as the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition and the expansion to Dead Rising 2, Case Zero. Hit the jump for a full list of what to look out for this week. What are you guys playing?
