On a bad week to have a name that start with "Mar", there's not much attending the joint funeral.

After the absolute insanity of last week in which 50 games and Balan Wonderworld came out, this week is a quarterly-transition induced week of sanity. The biggest titles are early in the week with platformer Narita Boy coming out on Tuesday and car combat game Drive Buy following up on Wednesday.

If we could do images on this line, there'd be a girlfriend meme with Donald, Monster Hunter Rise, and one of the Japanese releases.

A massive week (as would be expected with the end of calendar Q1 and fiscal Q4) is headlined by, of course, Monster Hunter Rise. Thank heavens I got some extra non-stimulus cash this month because I'm getting into Fire Emblem levels of coinciding purchases (mostly because of an upgraded Pro Controller).... Read more...
