The calm before the storm. We only have a few more weeks until we start to get bombarded with big game after big game. Though this is a rather slow week, there are still a few notable releases to be looked over. If you’re a Playstation Plus member, you’ll get a bonus freebie this week with Double Dragon Neon (releasing this week as well).. ~ Don

- Tuesday, September 11 ~ Battlefield 3 Premium Edition (PS3 & X360)
- Tuesday, September 11 ~NHL 13 (PS3 & X360)
- Tuesday, September 11 ~ Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (PS3 & X360)
If you have somehow managed to wait this long before picking up DICE’s last effort, you’re in luck. For the price of a new game ($59.99 USD), you can get Battlefield 3 Premium Edition. This includes the full Battlefield 3 game released last fall and a subscription for Battlefield Premium, alone a $50 value. This week also sees EA Sports’ yearly hockey release, NHL 13. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s a serious leap over the previous year like Madden, but it promises improved AI, an overhauled online mode and added animations to make NHL 13 look all-the-more real (EDITOR’S NOTE: if it is more real I wonder if my console will lock it out so I can’t play?). Fighting fans get the opportunity to pick up Tekken Tag Tournament 2 this week. With a robust roster of over 50 characters to pick between, Tag Tournament 2 delivers a ton more content than the previous game and adds a new mode, Fight Lab.
- Tuesday, September 11 ~Finding Nemo: Escape to the Big Blue (3DS & DS)
