It's a sad, sad week when the Hot New Game(tm) is Curious George. I'm sure it's perfectly fine for the kids and all, but somehow it doesn't seem right that it gets the week almost all to itself.
Coming up, however, is the start of a short but sweet barrage of titles guaranteed to have something for anyone. Football and the other football get an outing apiece, and budgetware horses show up to hone in on the little girl market like a laser. Oddness abounds in Chibi Robo and The Rub Rabbits, which is always nice to see. Classic platforming gets an outing with Drill Dozer, fighting with Street Fighter Alpha 3, and survival horror with Resident Evil. There's even good RPGing to be had in Tales of Legendia. All told, it's a very well rounded week.
