Two games came out last week, both on the 360. Two solid action titles, sure, but that's still pretty unimpressive. Fortunately, next week has a bit of life in it.

Once upon a time the gaming football season started with NCAA. Now that EA needs to milk the NFL license for all it's worth, that's not as true as it used to be. Still, the pre-football season is upon us already with NCAA 07. In less sporty news, the PSP brings in five titles this week, two of which are RPGs. Wrapping up the week is Monster House, which bills itself as survival horror for kids. If done right, the possibilities for emotional scarring are endlessly entertaining.

Prey (X360, PC)
Almost a decade late, but the gravity-defying FPS gets here at last.
