Here's a question for you: is Australia's hopeless showing in the Ashes series making you more or less interested in the video game?
Do you feel like you need to get out there and make amends? Or do you now just not want anything to do with cricket at all?
Oh, and there's a car game and a ninja game also out this week.
New releases for the w/c August 3:
Ashes Cricket 2009 (360, PS3) What Is It? Cricket sim that does, fortunately, feature more than just Australia v England. Should You Care? It's probably more enjoyable than watching the current series, to be honest.
Ferrari Challenge (Wii, DS) What Is It? Something of a rarity this, as serious racing sims tend to avoid Nintendo platforms. Should You Care? And these seriously average games demonstrate precisely why.
Ninja Blade (360) What Is It? Hyperbolic action game full of absurd boss battles punctuated by quick-time events. Should You Care? Hardly great, but good fun if you like plenty of cheese.
