April 4 - April 8
Think of this as the Official Give Your Wallet a Break Week. This has been the second spring in a row with a bevy of high-quality but high-spend games, and particularly for those of you who got wrapped up in the 3DS mania last week, a nice quiet week without something that absolutely demands your immediate attention might be a nice change of pace.
For those of you who have picked up Nintendo's latest handheld technology, I am interested to see how long the bloom stays on the rose. Certainly it's nice to have a DS on the market with an analog stick and better visuals, but the 3D functionality just hasn't given me the mental push I need to even consider dropping two-fifty down for the device. Admittedly, I'm not the target market, so I'm curious whether a week has seen any diminution of last week's enthusiasm.
As for Game of the Week, there's really nothing in the mix I can drum up enthusiasm about, so this week keeping some money in my pocket is my pick.
