August 28 - September 1
It may have occured to some of you that as I choose the Game of the Week, I have some sort of bias against RPGs sent our way across the great and mighty Pacific. You're not wrong. But, I will give a nod to a couple of titles landing on the PS2 that, I am told, are releases of some import to a segment of people with whom I apparently have very little in common. Those titles are Disgaea 2 and Xenosaga 3. I'm sure there will be much saving the world, oddly colored hair, and humans with animal appendages. Have fun boys.
Meanwhile, our Game of the Week only recently became a title I was remotely interested in. For some time now, Saint's Row has seemed like nothing more than a Grand Theft Auto clone, and that still largely holds true, but the initial buzz on the title is surprisingly positive. With the hope that the prerelease critical praise is well deserved, Saint's Row gets our Game of the Week.
Plenty of telelvision shows on DVD this week, though the most notable is probably the final season of Arrested Development. See the full list here.
