Feb 26th - March 2nd

10 inches of snow. When you ask why I'm picking a baseball title as Game of the Week, it's because I shoveled ten inches of snow off my driveway this morning, and the thought of anything having to do with warmer weather is enough to earn my appreciation. If there had been a game released this week simply called Summer where you sit on a beach and watch the temperature go up, not only would it have been Game of the Week, but I probably would have renamed the site in its honor.

In the wake of a surprisingly excellent effort last year from a Sony Sports title in MLB 06: The Show, it seems that the PS2 may once again be the place to simulate the boys of summer. Here's hoping that this year's effort MLB 07: The Show builds on the successes of last year. The crack of the bat, the smell of the grass, the taste of an overpriced dog and beer, it's a hint of the promise of summer to come. MLB 07: The Show is this week's Game of the Week.

Hm, weak week.

Edit: Actually, how was Jade Empire? Worth getting for the PC if you never played it on a console?

Decent enough RPG with a satisfying length. Honestly I think I prefer it on the console to the PC though. The combat controls are quite arcade.

They changed the controls for PC, you know.

Jade Empire was a great RPG. I highly recommend it for those of you who missed it during its run on the xbox.

I'd just like to register as the only person on the site who will buy Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny. Kickapoo!

You may be wrong about that.

No matter what anyone tells me, I'll always believe that sports games are just $40-$60 patches. Patch of the Week.

Sims 2: Seasons?

One of us, one of us.

Sonic and the Secret Rings is out for the Wii this week as well isn't it?

Doh!

*facepalm*

My bad.

I was really disappointed in the fighting in Jade Empire. It's really, really basic, especially if you've played many arcade fighters.

This week, it's all about the MLB 2K7 sweetheart...

Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny.

I'm there.

Isn't Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time out this week for the Wii Virtual Console?

Yes, but being a JRPG (sort of) Elysium doesn't care.

Yay!
