Mmmm... RPGs...

This week had RPGs for just about everyone, with battle strategy, American style (Star Wars flavored), action, and even MMORPG expansions hitting almost all at once. About the only thing missing was traditional turn-based, a style that's been more and more scarce lately. Still, it's a good thing we've got all these several-dozen-hour long RPGs hitting at once because next week (and peeking ahead, the week after) is looking pretty dry. Still, it's Christmas and even gaming publishers want a little down time for eggnog and sugar cookies.

Two more weeks and we've got the total numbers for the holiday releases...

Total number of titles previously released this holiday season: 432
Titles released last week: 17
Total number of titles since September: 449
