The Date Is Not A Lie

There's some game due to release by Tuesday, its name is on the tip of my tongue. Something about potatoes. Eh, it'll come to me. If not, Mortal Kombat, SOCOM 4 and Conduit 2 are all A-list drops arriving on the same day.

Monday

  • Remington Super Slam Hunting: Alaska (Wii)

Tuesday

  • Portal 2 (Mac, PS3, 360, PC) - The sequel to Valve's 2007 hit promises a campaign twice as long as the original, as well as cooperative multiplayer mode that tells its own story.
  • Mortal Kombat (PS3, 360) - This heavyweight fighter returns to its roots with an M-rated release promising gruesome fatalities and bone-snapping action.
  • SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs (PS3) - The military shooter series dispatches you to Southeast Asia on a six day mission to protect a vital shipping lane during a nearby revolution.
  • Conduit 2 (Wii) - Delayed repeatedly and now thoroughly overshadowed by Portal 2 and the rest, High Voltage picks up where its science-fiction conspiracy FPS left off in 2008.

Also: TrackMania Turbo (DS)

Wednesday

  • Pinball FX 2: MARS (XBLA)
  • Section 8: Prejudice (XBLA)
