One of the biggest games this week is Call of Duty: World at War, the first game in the popular series since last year's awesome Modern Warfare. This game takes the series back to its WW2 roots...and back to off-year developer Treyarch, two strikes against the game in the eyes of many fans of last year's Infinity Ward developed installment. However, don't be worried because I think the game looks great, especially since it keeps the same addictive multiplayer XP/perk system found in 4...AND BECAUSE IT HAS NAZI ZOMBIES! How can you say no to that?! Well, other than saying "I'm waiting for Left 4 Dead next week".

Next up is Mirror's Edge, the ambitious first person running game from BattleField developers, EA DICE. In case you've been living under a rock, Mirror's Edge is a first person game inspired by Parkour, or free running, in which you play as Faith, a messenger who is being pursued by the man. Based on the demo on PS3, I must say it's one of the best games I've played this year, and definitely the most original big-budget disc-based game of the year. Don't let IGN's BS reviews fool you, Mirror's Edge is a game worth getting.

Of course the biggest game of the week is World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Litch King, the latest expansion to the wildly popular MMORPG. I really don't know much about WoW except it steals your life and turns you into a fatass basement-dwelling neckbeard nerd. Needless to say, I've never played it, but I've seen what happens to friends that get into it, and it scares me off from the game looks boring as heck.

Also out this week is Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts (the awesome N64 platformer is back...with little platforming and lots of vehicle building), Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 (360 this time, in case you missed it on the PC), Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff (The classic is back...with no NFL license), Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia (moar Pokemans, hopefully moar mudkipz), and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (people like the Tales series from what I know...)

So, next week, I WILL DELIVER ON TIME! I promise!

Hey, the Wii has a couple big names this week. Still lots of shovelware though, and anyone else notice almost 1/3 of the Wii games have "party" in the title?
It must be some kind of requirement.
@NES_Rules:Lol, it's true! Cheesy

And Pokémon? I wonder how that series will last. It was awesome back when I was young but does that series even air anymore? (In Belgium it doesn't, atleast)

I'm saddened by the bad reviews for Mirror's Edge - be them true or false. People shouldn't buy yet another WWII shooter instead of a game that tries something new. Let's hope a Mirror's Edge 2 will see the light of day.
But the thing is, Mirror's Edge is getting great reviews, except from a few sites like GameSpot and IGN.

Being EA, I'm sure there will be a Mirror's Edge 2. The first game feels like a template for DICE to do something huge with the second game.

Pokemon is still immensely popular.

I can't wait to try out Mirror's Edge on PC.
I just picked up my pre-order of Mirror's Edge, I love the FUGLY bag I got with it and I can't wait to play it... now if only I wasn't addicted to RFGen
