New video game releases for the week of 3/23/09

This week's new video games bring a mix of movies, real-time strategy, sports, and RPGs. Tomorrow (Sunday) is the release of Pokemon Platinum. It will be a big seller for the DS with the large base of Pokémon collectors out there. Now that gamers have warmed up to RTS gaming with Halo Wars, it may be a good time to check out Stormrise from SEGA. Stormrise offers a new perspective to the traditional RTS with a third-person view and "vertical" gameplay. PLAYSTATION 3 gamers looking for a solid RTS fix should check out the "Ultimate Edition" of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. Video cutscenes look great on the Blu-ray edition. Try the demo just recently released on the PlayStation Network to see for yourself. Wanted: Weapons of Fate is a movie-inspired game that looks promising. A demo is available on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network as well. As a little bonus, we have a video featuring the artist of the Wanted comic book below, courtesy of Hollywood.com. Another dose of Hollywood is coming from Vin Diesel in The Wheelman, the Midway game that Ubisoft is helping to co-publish. See more new videogame releases in the week ahead below!

Not a great lineup, might get Platinum though.

to me, the RA3 demo was utter *hit. Perfect example why you should build console RTSs from the ground up for the console gamer in mind instead of trying to fit K/M in a control pad - messy and borderline retarded.
