 This is the calm before the storm as the game releases are reaching a lull before their almost non-existence next week during E3. This week has Namco Bandai's The Munchables for Wii, Nintendo's Personal Trainer: Walking for DS, and a smattering of other games.    


Rock Band 2 gets 19 songs, including a free song from Valve's Portal. Guitar Hero: World Tour has only one song this, but it is free and it is also "The Touch" by Stan Bush from The Transformers: The Movie.
