Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Another good week!
Bioshock 2, sequel to the critically acclaimed and very fun and atmospheric first person shooter, comes out for the HD systems and PC this week!
Also out this week is the game that has made a name for itself for having a retarded marketing campaign; the God-of-War-Clone known as "Dante's Inferno" comes out for 360 and PS3. Don't forget to get Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno: The Epic Poem: The Game: The Book while you're at it
The Wii gets two interesting games this week. The first is the Atlus-published roguelike sequel to the DS original, the game Shiren The Wanderer comes out for Wii this week. It looks pretty good, and should be as addicting as its DS predecessor. Also on Wii is the balance-board-compatible Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll. And finally, I should mention that Blaster Master Overdrive comes out for Wiiware; we'll know the other wiiware games tomorrow.
For PS3, the console also gets Star Ocean: The Last Hope International Edition, the RPG that came out for the 360 almost exactly a year ago to lukewarm reviews.
Also I should mention that Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity comes out for PC, a bundle pack includes the original Sins of a Solar Empire, plus the Entrenchment and Diplomacy expansions.
I'll be getting both Shiren the Wanderer and Bioshock 2 at some point, and quite possibly Blaster Master on WiiWare depending on how it turns out. I think there's a demo available tomorrow too.
