GameTab has a thorough list of this week's releases, and it's a doozy. At long last. The last few weeks (since the holidays, really) have been quiet, volume-wise. But for the next seven days we'll be struggling over the following. This is just a taste, too. PC Brothers In Arms: Road to Hill 30 ...

Phantom Dust was meant to be an Xbox Live! staple title. But after a review by Microsoft, the plan changed.
