Another busy week and another belated report. :)

Upcoming reviews: Atelier Rorona, Phantasy Star Portable 2, F1 2010, Etrian Odyssey 3, Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet 2 (hopefully), Civilization V (hopefully), Blade Kitten, RUSE, Top Gun, Valkyria Chronicles II, HAWX 2 -- and probably a few others!

Planned coverage: Section 8: Prejudice, Elemental post-mortem (not confirmed yet), NBA 2K11 feature, Vindictus preview.

Wikis: Gonna start up a Battlefield 3 wiki in addition to fleshing out the Bad Company 2 wiki and Dragon Age wiki (going to work on the gameplay tips guide -- can't wait!). Once Lydia isn't so busy with reviews she'll get back to Guild Wars 2 -- why not help out in the meantime? :) Leo is settled on the Valkyria Chronicles series wiki, especially with VC3 coming.

Highlights:

Halo: Reach review - worthy of the hype, it seems!
Amnesia: The Dark Descent review - a must for horror fans
Shadows of the Damned - like Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, No More Heroes, and/or Silent Hill? Then you'll want to check this one out.
Witcher 2's nude woman torture scene being reconsidered - some English vs. North American drama :)

On a sidenote, our hardware side is in a bit of a state at the moment. If you didn't catch the notices on Twitter/FB, you should check out our affiliate Overclocker's Club for the next while until things get back to normal:

They're good people!

If you're curious on the backstory, basically it's just the usual ebb and flow -- some folks are leaving because of school and whatnot, so our new guy Chris Ledenican is taking on pretty much all of the new hardware reviews, with no time for news. We hope to get sorted sooner than later.

Also, a great PC developer by the name of Arcen (AI War, Tidalis) is in financial trouble -- I strongly recommend you pick up their game or games, spread the word, etc. They're very community oriented and it'd be a shame to see them go under.
