Prepare to get tricky! The weird thing about this week is it is the week after the Vita is launching, and there are no Vita games. That aside, the week before (insert OMG GOTY scream here) Mass Effect 3 comes, there really isn’t anything that involving coming out, with the exception of the Shin Megami DS game. So go buy SSX and hit the slopes with your friends for a week before you barricade yourself indoors for a month. ~ Don
Please note dates are subject to change, and these do not account for digital releases, which can sometimes be as important as retail releases. Don’s personal picks are highlighted in red.
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Binary Domain (PS3 & X360) (Read our Quick Attack here)
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (PS3 & X360)
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ SSX (PS3 & X360)
Playstation 3 only:
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Hyper Dimension Neptunia mk2
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Order-Up!!
- Monday, February 27 ~ PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Country Dance All-Stars
Whether you are gearing up for your first ride down the slopes in EA Sports’ SSX or you just want to kick-it country style and line dance in Country Dance All-Stars, this weeks releases will have you covered. The Wii even gets a game, and not just any game either; PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond. But I think we can agree the real kicker here is that Order Up!! has held a place on this release list more than once now, which begs to ask; is it real? In all seriousness, consoles also get Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition which serves up more bone-smashing fun, komplete with all of the DLC available since launch.
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 (DS)
- Tuesday, February 28 ~ Rhythm Thief & the Emperors Treasure (3DS)
Pretty skimpy here, but if you didn’t drop the cash on a new handheld (read: Vita), and need some portable goodness, you get two flavors this week. An RPG on the DS, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 and a timing/rhythm game on the 3DS, Rhythm Thief & the Emperors Treasure. Shin Megami shouldn’t need an explanation from me, as the Atlus-published RPG has quite a following, and is still available for us that haven’t moved forward to the 3DS yet. Rhythm Thief looks to make use of all of the 3DS’ features, including tilting the handheld to do certain actions.

Sorry, your Vita games are a lie this week.
