March 5 - March 9
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was, in many ways, the first must have game for the Xbox 360, so it seems like some kind of passing of the torch that its sequel is coming out the same week as MotorStorm, the first maybe-I-should-get-that-because-the-demo-is-the-only-thing-I-play game for people stuck with that PS3 they couldn't unload on Ebay. I'm a bit suspicious of GRAW 2, but that's because I'm suspicious of any sequel that can be slapped together less than a year after the previous version, but the original was solid enough that even if they've done nothing more than take the exact same engine and gameplay mechanics and come up with some new improbable hyper-violent international crisis for my Ghost Recon team to tackle, then that's still pretty good.
Good enough for Game of the Week, at least.
On the DVD front, it's like a black hole this week: it sucks. Peruse the suckitude here.
