If you're wondering where last week's releases went, I place the blame squarely on the shoulders of Thanksgiving, with the following day of retail hell being its prime accomplice. It'll return next week to its usual spot, acting as if nothing happened.
Next week, being a bit more reliable, shows up in its usual way. While there's only one major console release, the Prince of Persia's annual adventure, the handhelds take up the slack. Mario & Luigi and PoPoLoCrois bring RPG goodness to their respective platforms, while Burnout lands on the DS. And if anyone wants more, well, welcome to the post-Thanksgiving world. Think of it as a great time to catch up on all those pre-Thanksgiving purchases while getting ready for hoped-for Christmas haul.
