Weekly Report, 6/26

Where on earth did June go?

While it's not true that nothing happened last week, it was little more than a blip on the radar. Some motorcycle racing, football coaching, breakout, and RPG-ing were joined by Tomb Raider finally landing on the PSP.

Next week fares a bit better, with a pair of Pirates of the Caribbean games, another pair of motocross games (Crusty Demons? Ok...), and Naruto making a full house. Toss in Natsume's budget furry-themed run & gun with a shot of Over G's jet fighting on the 360, and that's basically the week.

A small piece of advice heading into July- don't expect things to pick up. At present it looks like July gets 42 games across all platforms, and that's counting each appearance of one game on multiple systems plus a few PC as well. Maybe it's a good time to investigate the wonderful world of importing. Both the DS and PSP are region free, after all.
