New Release Rundown ~ Week of 8/1/2010

Everyone is still playing StarCraft II, so no one cares what is coming out this week, right? Yeah, I’m probably right. I don’t need to ask. If you aren’t playing Blizzard’s RTS, what are you playing? There isn’t a whole lot coming out this week. In fact, the only highlight I can see among a sea of crap-tastic games is Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. That’s it. Um…what else is there to say? This is probably the worst week of releases all summer, which makes it pretty bad indeed. Hit the jump for the short list.
