From feast to famine, we're backpedaling this week after last's treasure trove, including Crysis 2, Dissidia 012, and the Nintendo 3DS.
Instead we'll have to make do with games like Dynasty Warriors 7 (PS3, Xbox 360, PSP), another Japanese history-angled hack-and-slash from developer Omega Force. For once, the game lets you battle beyond The Battle of Wuzhang Plains and adds the Jin Kingdom to bump the prime faction count from three up to four total. Other updates include dual wield weapons, multi-part battles, support animals, a new free-roam conquest mode, and a return to the older charge-based combo flourish system. ETA: March 29
Parasite Eve fans can celebrate The 3rd Birthday (PSP), Square Enix's followup to Parasite Eve 2. Wikipedia calls it a "horror third-person shooter action role-playing game," which is just some Internet automaton's pleonastic way of saying "guns, monsters, shoot-stuff." ETA: March 29
You probably won't find easter egg references to his personal travails, but you will find EA's take on golf's Masters Tournament in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii). Pack your bags, you're going to August National Golf Club, with debut commentary by CBS's Jim Nantz. ETA: March 29
