We're just gonna come right out and say it: July 2009 may be the worst month for new retail releases ever. Unless you like 2D fighters that is, because in that case, it's awesome. Or games about movies about hamsters, those two groups are being really well serviced.If you haven't fully prepared you...

Summer's just two weeks away, and traditionally it brings with it year's worst drought of good new releases. June 2009 is actually holding up pretty well though with a few big ticket items like Red Faction: Guerrilla and Ghostbusters and a slew of new Overlord games.Hit the gallery for the full lis...

It's a new month of game releases, and ... well at least they're not as bad as April. Bionic Commando, inFAMOUS and Terminator: Salvation provide some middle-to-late month relief, but you're going to have to be daddy's little trooper for a few weeks. You can hang in there, can't you, chief?You can...

If you head out to your local electronic game emporium tomorrow, try to savor the experience. Soak in the garish ads imploring you to trade in your DSi for a new DS that's coming out soon. Absorb the smells of the guy who's been wearing those navy sweatpants for so long they've become fused to his...

Huh, well, this is a strange one. With very few (very undead) exceptions, this isn't a great month to be a gamer on the 360 or PS3. But if you're a Nintendo fan, you've got a lot to look forward to. A new Pokemon, MadWorld and the return of Ready 2 Rumble are just a few of the treats you can antici...

After a few false alarms, we think it's safe to say that video game releases are finally, blessedly back in full force. Sure, February 2009 may not have the bombast of a November or December 2008, but there are some perfectly respectable releases here.Enjoy clicking through all the month's delights...

Well, we're past the worst of the holiday blitz, and we've come out on the other side with only minor cuts and bruises. But though Prince of Persia may be the major release this month, there are still a few possible gems, including Rise of the Argonauts and Persona 4.Also, with increased wiggle roo...

Maybe it's just wishful thinking on our part, but November actually seems like it'll be a little bit easier on the pocket book than last month. Even if you count the biggies like Resistance 2 and EndWar that already hit us this week, it's still less taxing than October. Don't get the wrong impressi...

OK, video game publishers, we know we said we weren't complaining about the torrent of new releases last month, but now, we totally are. Do you know how long this features takes to write now? Do you know how broke we're going to be by month's end? (Answer key: Too long; very.)Watch a visual represe...

Wow. We know we talked about it in our weekly new games post, but the fall is in full swing. We're featuring 17 big releases this month, and we didn't even have room for all of the ones we wanted to talk about. Is the first time we're going to go broke in September?By the way, we're not complaini...

Here we are again, another month, and another 31 days of gaming possibility. August of 2008 is actually faring a bit better than stinky, unsatisfying predecessor July of 2008, with a handful of titles we can't wait to take for a spin, and a few that we might carve out a few minutes for.So, what are...

We don't know any way to put this gingerly, so we're just going to come right out with it: July isn't going to be a great month for games. Sure, there are a few (read: very few) exceptions, but for the most part, we hope you didn't burn through all of June's surprise riches already.But far be it...
