Well everyone, I hope you still have some video games and movies to get through at home, because this week is basically devoid of any worthy titles to add to either of your collections.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a week so light on purchase worthy titles as this one, but it is what it is.  If you want to expand your gaming acumen you might want to check out the free-to-play Tribes: Ascend for the PC, which is a FPS multiplayer game that resembles the likes of Halo, and other sci-fi inspired shooters.  If I had a PC I’d try it out because it’s free and looks very interesting, but you should at least check out the gameplay trailer for it after the break to see if Tribes: Ascend is a game that tickles your taint.

In regards to the Blu-ray/DVD front there’s absolutely nothing worth picking up unless you want to add to your ever growing home 3D collection.  In that case you will be able to pick up The Darkest Hour, which did horribly at the theater, but it is in 3D, so if you’ve been needing another movie to show off your new 3DTV’s capabilities, you may want to check it out.  As always you can buy any of these recommendations by clicking on their Amazon product links below.

Video games to buy for the week of 4.9.12

Slim pickings folks.  I’d advise returning to an old game that you still have some work to complete in, or if you have a PC you should check out the free-to-play Tribes: Ascend here.

Blu-ray/DVDs to buy for the week of 4.9.12

Just like the video game market there really isn’t many movies coming out this week that deserve your hard earned cash.  If you have a 3D TV at home you may want to check out The Darkest Hour, but don’t expect a great movie.  I’m only recommending it as another title to show off your technology to your friends who haven’t obtained your level of geekery in their gaming cave setups.
