It’s another week in video games! The Switch gets a lot of ports this week, the PS4 gets The Tetris Effect, and the PC will see a new Leisure Suit Larry. We have a lot of big games on the horizon too, with Fallout 76, Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevvee, and Hitman 2 leading the pack.
This pony is sick of your crap, E3 week, and your pitiful offering of game releases.
Holiday weekends in the U.S. typically foreshadow light weeks in game releases and the coming seven days is no different. Darkspore, for PC, is the top drop on Tuesday. There also is some DLC coming for Shift Unleashed and Outland, a downloadable title for PSN and XBLA.
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.
Another tranquil week; Patapon 3 arrives for PSP; World of Tanks rumbles across the line on PCs. Outside of those two, the heavy sounds of shovels as April's first bloom hits its stride.
Very little in the way of big releases this week. Among games we're likely to play around here, Hoard arrives on the PC and Mac, five months after its console release. Spiral Knights, a free-to-play game from Sega, launches tomorrow. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, an Xbox Live Arcade game, is probably the biggest game…

Crysis 2's arrival is the console highlight of the week. A raft of games in preparation for the Nintendo 3DS's North American release next Sunday also start hitting retail shelves.
Retail shelves welcome our new Korean leaders with Homefront, the much-discussed urban guerrilla shooter starring irregular American troops. Plenty of other big drops this Tuesday also, including Okamiden and Yakuza 4's North American debuts.
Pokemon Black and Pokemon White arrived on shelves today. Tuesday pits the jocks versus the D&D crowd. Leading the way is Dragon Age II; baseball returns the same day with MLB 11 The Show and Major League Baseball 2K11.
EA Sports' raging bull crashes into shelves on Tuesday, with an M-rated look at the sweet - and brutal - science.
Killzone 3 and Bulletstorm get their guns off on Tuesday. The third release in the Killzone series won't have as much cussin' in its dialogue, says developer Guerrilla Games. Bulletstorm, frankly, doesn't have much non-cussin' in its script.
It is a week of lengthy game names, with the Fate of Two Worlds at stake, one game imploring to Let Us Cling Together and one visit to the Realm of Revelation. What new games await us, Kotaku readers?
Test Drive Unlimited 2 peels onto the track this week, returning to Oahu, the scene of the first Test Drive Unlimited. Other releases include Mario Sports Mix and You Don't Know Jack.
High-profile downloadables lead the coming seven days of game releases, beginning with Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 on PSN Tuesday (and Xbox Live on Wednesday), plus the first map pack extension in Call of Duty: Black Ops.

We close out 2010 with four releases on download services, headlined by the first extension for Dead Rising 2 - or second, if you count Case Zero, which preceded the game.
