Should you happen to see some morose game fans panhandling outside your local Gamestop this week, blame the insane release schedule that just went into overdrive for the holidays. More than a few A-list titles go on sale this week, including: Resistance 2, Quantum of Solace, Tom Clancy’s EndWar, and, on Friday, Gears of War 2. Also vying for your recession-distressed wallet are Naruto Ultimate Ninja: Storm, WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009; and for you Nintendo fans out there, Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine and Monster Lab. We say: God bless you, game publishers for giving us so many terrific options. We also say: Damn you, game publishers for giving us so many terrific options! Gears 2 will monopolize most of my time this week (as I was lucky enough to score a review copy). How about you PopWatchers? Which newrelease(s) get your vote this election day?
