Just when we all thought that the gaming industry was going to give our wallets a break, a host of new games are unleashed upon us!  This week marks the release of a few sequels, as well as a new original IP.  In the sequel camp gamers can return to the Darkness franchise with The Darkness II, and Resident Evil fans can take a crack at RE: Revelations.  Curt Schilling’s Big Huge Games studios is also releasing their first original IP title called Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning, which looks promising for RPG fans.  Gamers who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s will also get a chance to download the classic Simpsons arcade game too this week.

Unfortunately, the home movie front isn’t as loaded as the gaming scene.  The only release that may be worth your time is A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas.  Outside of that there’s nothing but Disney classics, and other crap that geeks don’t really appreciate.  As always you can pick up any of these recommendations by clicking on their box art below!  You’ve been interested in this Reckoning project…

Video games to buy for the week of 2.6.12

Even though I’m knee deep into FFXIII-2 I’m definitely interested in Reckoning.  From what I’ve seen it shows promise, but until the public gets their hands on it we truly won’t know its potential.  The Darkness II is a game I’ll eventually play, but I’m not that big of a fan, so this sequel may get relegated to rental status.  Don’t forget about some arcade action this week with both Gotham City Imposters, and The Simpsons coming out later in the week.

Blu-ray/DVDs to by for the week of 2.6.12

I don’t even know if I can recommend Harold and Kumar’s third film as a must buy, but it’s the only movie coming out this week that’s worth watching.  If it’s in 3D I’ll probably buy it, because I’m a 3D homer right now and just want to build up my collection.
