Mr. Cunningham has recently picked up a great deal of tasks on his plate now that he's an up-and-coming writing sensation for Hardcore Gamer, so I've stepped in to introduce his weekly release column.
Compared to the previous week, gamers have a lot more reasons to dig into their wallets and fork over the green this time around. Of particular interest, there's the newest Asheron Call installment, Throne of Destiny on deck for the PC types, while Majesco's Nanostray will definitely make a worthy purchase for thirsty DS owners. I am not sure what to make of the new Animaniacs release, but Graffiti Kingdom looks very promising. In fact, we'll be giving special attention to that within the next few weeks with a full-hands on revew. Look forward to it!
