Now this... this is what I am talking about. This is a good week to be a gamer. Quite a few titles hitting this week, including multiple “big-hitters”. The grudge match of the week is easily Portal 2 versus Mortal Kombat. Both games command quite a following from legions of gamers and will undoubtedly be pulling in big numbers this week. Many popular retailers are even hosting midnight release-events for them this week, including Walmart and Gamestop.
Despite some lackluster early reviews, SOCOM 4 isn’t one to be forgotten either as Zipper Interactive looks to bring the series back to its former glory. In terms of competative shooters, the game to beat this week is undoubtedly Section 8 -Prejudice. Trust me, this game is amazing, especially given that it is a downloadable title for only $14.99. I have spent quite a bit of time playing a couple of the preview builds and would argue that this game will easily stand toe-to-toe with the big-dog FPS games topping the charts right now. DO NOT pass this one up...
Of course, those are just some of the titles hitting retailers this week. I am sure that if you look through the full listing below, you are sure to find a little bit of something for everyone.
