August 21st - August 25th
You know this week's Game of the Week is kinda unavoidable. Not to mention that nobody in their right mind is throwing up anything against the 800 pound gorilla. So, if you're buying a video game this week, then odds are that you are buying one of Madden NFL 07's eleven different versions. And, let's be fair, there's some enticing elements to this year's offering, not the least of which is the inclusion of licensed Hall of Fame players, lead blocker control, expanded Franchise mode, and the return of mini-camp games to the 360. Love it or hate it, Madden NFL 2007 is the clear Game of the Week.
While Silent Hill is the most widely recognized DVD to be released this coming week, don't miss the release of Veronica Mars Season 2. A much smarter show than one might expect, and a virtual must for former Buffy fans (The Whedon makes a guest appearance early in the season), Veronica Mars falls in that dangeous and nebulous area of critical acclaim and weak ratings. If you haven't had a chance to check Veronica out, then I recommend a Netflix or rental of Season 1. More DVDs here.
