Week in Games: Two Sequels and Something New

Lost Planet 2 (above) and Skate 3 highlight the coming week. But let's do this roundup a bit differently and, I hope, in a way that's a little more useful and interesting to you.

Monday (May 10)
Photo Dojo (DS): It's a chop-socky side-scroller/fighter, but more importantly, it gets you into the action, with often hilarious results. Available free on the DSiWare Shop until June 10.

Also: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations. The classic comes to WiiWare; Dance Sensation (Wii), Earthworm Jim (DS) and Chess Challenge (DS and Wii)

So how was that? Also, feel free to brag about what you're getting, rage about what you can't afford, talk about what you're looking forward to, in the comments.
