April 2nd - April 6th
Are you ready to rock?! And by 'rock', I mean rebuy a game you've already got on another system just so you can have a few extra songs, updated visuals, gamer achievements and the potential for downloading new songs in the future? Because, I certainly am!
I know many of you won't understand the impulse to buy basically the same game twice, particularly when that game costs some $90 -- almost as much as a Playstation 2 alone -- and I don't necessarily claim that the impulse to get Guitar Hero 2 for the 360 is entirely sane, but I must have it the way I must have caffeine in the morning or tacos from Chipotle on Friday nights. No game to date has really enticed me to notice the achievements occasionally offered like some kind of Scooby snack for performing a new trick, but GH2's list of achievements appeals to me on fundamental levels. Despite its occasionally imperfect playlist, Guitar Hero 2 ranks as one of my all-time favorite games, and I'm pretty sure I'd be buying it if they had a verson for my cell phone. Game of the Week!
A forgettable week on the DVD front, unless you happen to be a fan of HBO's Entourage which brings the first part of Season 3 to shelves on Tuesday. The largely empty list here.
