March 20th - March 25th
Sometimes, it's difficult to settle upon a single Game of the Week. Either there are no good candidates, or we're left with a couple of completely mediocre games that offer only a passing interest. Other times there are plenty of games to choose from, but nothing of any substance in the release list. Then, there are time like this, where if I were to choose any other game, I'm certain that great rabid and vociferous fan bases would mobilize into shambling, destructive armies to take vengeance upon me. The mania surrounding this game is palpable, and I do not wish to incur wrath, so, obviously, our GOTW is Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It is, however, worth noting that there are a number of intriguing titles on virtually every system including Metal Gear Acid 2 and Me and My Katamari on the PSP, Metroid Prime: Hunters on the DS, Blazing Angels on the Xbox 360, and The Godfather on PS2 and PC. I hope you've saved some money.
If you can't find a must have game this week, then you may want to take up Parcheesi as your new pasttime. For those of you, however, with such a wealth of free time that you can play yourself silly and still be left wanting to watch a movie, you can enjoy Disney's Chicken Little on DVD this week. More DVD releases for the week available here.
