After last week's bonanza of wallet busting releases, this week is a little more subdued, with nothing really mind blowing being released. Fight Night Champion and Rift are the clear contenders however, and as a fan of the Fight NIght series I'm looking forward to seeing how they integrate a rollicking narrative into the game's structure.
Dawn of War II: Retribution (PC) What is it? The second stand alone expansion to the Dawn of War II series. Should you care? This is a niche release specifically for fans. I'm not a fan - but you might be!
Fight Night Champion (360/PS3) What is it? New entry into the Fight Night franchise featuring an all-new 'rookie/underdog fights through the ranks despite interfering family members and conflict between money and honor in this corrupt boxing industry' storyline. Does the previous sentence even make sense - probably not. Should you care? I say yes. I love Fight Night. What say you?
Gray Matter (PC) What is it? Wow! A point and click adventure game! Should you care? It's from the creator of the Gabriel Knight games, and apparently it's a bit of alright.
Rift (PC) What is it? A new monstrous MMO. Should you care? We wonder if MMO fans can peel their glazed eyeballs from World of Warcraft for long enough to realise this exists.
Wild West Shootout (Wii) What is it? Some sort of shovelware 'shooty' game. Should you care? If people buy this after totally not buying the awesome Red Steel 2, I will punch myself in the testicles.
