You know it's a sad fact of life when some weeks are filled with a barrage of games, yet there's very little to say about them as a whole. Sure, comments could be made about the DS getting a slow, but steady supply of games that can actually be played while the PSP languishes in movieland, however such petty system war talk is best reserved for online forums. On that note, have a good gaming week, and try not to think too hard about Sony's apparent abandonment of the sleekest piece of gaming hardware around until the Fall season.
