Weekly Releases

October 31, 2005

I am pretty pumped up for Battlefront 2 and as such I made sure my copy was on order and the Gamerush at Babcock and Prue already has their copies so getting yours on release date shouldn’t be an issue. Make sure you also pickup Episode 3 tomorrow.

Also coming out this week is TMNT3 and I am really confused about that one. I mean, TMNT was [url=http://www.snackbar-games.com/reviews/79]pretty weak[/url] with an average Gameranking score hovering about 61% with the GBA version weighing in at the top with a 70.9%. TMNT2 actually had worse ratings than the first game with an overall average of 49.2%. With those kinds of figures, why oh why would Konami decide to go ahead and make a third game in this series? It was evident that they had gotten so far away from the greatness of the NES versions that they were doomed to mediocrity, but to continue to churn out games of this caliber makes no sense.

Guitar Hero also hits store shelves this week, if you are lucky. Otherwise you might find yourself shelling out $70-90 to pick up this guitar simulator.

A few other gems coming out this week are Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and CoD2 hits the consoles. Things are only proving to get crazier as this holiday season approaches.
