The release calendar continues to be pretty empty, so Dead Space 2 is still the belle of the ball. Justin talks up a couple iPhone games, and LittleBigPlanet 2 gets what's coming to it. It's a light week in the news department, but that's made up for in emails. There are a couple of Kinect titles in the pipeline and one of those happens to be "the most realistic and intense sports simulations ever created." Are you excited?

Don't forget about PAX East. We're doing it big again this year. Don't believe us? Just check out this slick teaser.

Thanks to Alan Black for this photoshop of the boys proving that they are alive.
