New Release Rundown Week of 1/24

Hello all, I am here today with the New Release Rundown, after kind of sleeping all day Monday. This week is packed full of releases, and should be exciting regardless of what console you own. PS3 owner’s get to join the Shadow War this week in MAG. Pick your faction and prepared to back them through victory and loss. There will be a patch that should be fixing a few last minute issues as well. If you own a 360 or PC, call work, and let them know you caught the swine flu and will be out for a week or two, because Mass Effect 2 is hitting TODAY. Bioware’s latest epic should be something that shouldn’t disappoint, but it will take over your life. This week is also a hell of a week for Wii owners. Travis Touchdown returns this week in No More Heroes 2, so be ready to waggle your way through the sequel to one of the most risque Wii titles. Also, Tatsunoku vs. Capcom releases today for the fighting game fanatics that were left saddened by the release of Street Fighter 4 last year. Also, check out our unboxing of the Fighting Stick that MadCatz sent our way (impressions also).

My favorite game title for the week has to go to Marines: Modern Urban Combat. It was like they finished the game and were thinking of the name, and one guy said how about Marines: Modern Warfare, and then they realized that Modern Warfare was already the title of a game. As a last ditch effort they went with the fact that it is modern but could only come up with Urban Combat. This almost makes it sound like it should be Def Jam: Modern Urban Combat. It sounds like 50 Cent should be fighting Lil Wayne. Also, why do you need two different personal fitness games? I’m sure both the male and female iterations could have been on one SD card… For shame… Alright guys, enjoy your week and buy some games.
