Well I hope you still have some left over games to play, or a few old Blu-rays to re-watch at home, because this holiday week’s new release offerings are pretty slim.  As far as gaming goes the only new title that may be worth checking out is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for the Nintendo 3DS.  This rhythm based game contains 70 tracks from the Final Fantasy universe that will get any FF fanboy feeling better about the franchise that they fell in love with so many years ago.  The last two games in the series have left a bad taste in mouths of RPG fans, so Theatrhytm’s call back to some of the more popular FF games should be a fresh of breath air for long time fans.  I got to see this unique concept in action at E3, and I can’t help but be excited to play it.

That’s about it as far as new games go, and the Blu-ray/DVD market isn’t much better.  In fact, there isn’t a single movie coming out this week that’s worth mentioning.  It looks like you’ll have to rely on Netflix, or your home library this week, because there’s definitely a shortage of quality movies for your home theater this week.  As always you can click on the Amazon images below to buy any, well I guess just the one, of our recommendations.  You’ve been thinking it’s a good time to work on some DLC…

Video games to buy for the week of 7.2.12

I’d say it’s more like video game singular to buy, because the interesting Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for 3DS is the only new release that I can see spending money on.  Like I said, you may just want to work on some of your older games, or give some of the latest DLC packs a try such as Dawnguard for Skyrim, and the Extended Cut for Mass Effect 3.
