Video games are continuing the battle back from the brink of doom this week, with the release of one of 2009's most promising titles yet: Skate 2. We'll have some more detailed thoughts for you soon, but suffice to say it's definitely worth your time, if only to congratulate EA for having the stones to release a big-name title in the cold, bitter darkness of winter.

Also of note is early PS2 contender for 2009 Name of the Year, AR Tonelico 2: Melody Of Metafalica. We were going to Google it for more info, but we were fairly sure we'd end up on some sort of watch list.
