This week offers something for everyone. Super Street Fighter IV is probably the biggest release of the week. Now you’re probably thinking, “Don’t I already own Street Fighter IV?” Yes. Yes, you do. But with more characters, more moves, faster combos, and all around improved on-line functionality, get ready to buy it all over again.
Dead to Rights: Retribution is the latest entry for the series and should scratch any action-fan’s itch. Yes, rogue cop Jack Slade is back for revenge, again. This is his first next-gen outing. As a plus, I hear that the dog is completely controllable this time around.
On the download side of things, old-school Nintendo Entertainment System armchair-quarterbacks’ will be ecstatic that Tecmo Bowl Throwback is available on Wednesday. And if anyone cares, Dante’s Inferno gets a “Trials of St. Lucia” add-on on Thursday.
