New Releases 8/9-8/15: Late Summer Blitz Edition

Although the appearance of Madden NFL 10 signifies the commencement of preseason football, it also tends to indicate the days of a software-starved summer are beginning to wane. With Wolfenstein, Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy, Guitar Hero 5 and Batman: Arkham Asylum imminent, the autumn deluge of games is about to begin. Make sure your schedules and wallets are adequately prepared!

DesertEagle’s Pick: Early reports are stating than Madden NFL 10‘s gameplay feels exceptionally strong this year. While I enjoy the virtal gridiron, I truly love strategy-RPGs. Therefore, Phantom Brave: We Meet Again is a must have for all Nippon Ichi-loving Wii owners.

SeanNOLA’s Pick: If I didn’t know any better, I’d think we were in 2004: with re-releases of gems like Phantom Brave and Marvel vs Capcom 2, games from the last generation are feeling more and more charming every day.  They split my pick of the week, unless Sky Pirates of Neo Terra turns out to be as awesome as its name suggests.

TideGear’s Pick
: This is the week for
Marvel vs. Capcom 2! I love the PS3 controller and its d-pad. However, I can’t ignore NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits which is very reminiscent of both Kid Icarus and LostWinds! That’s my pick.
