Games you may have forgotten about this week

By Spencer . November 7, 2007 . 2:10pm

I feel like posting up weekly release lists is pointless since plenty of other sites already do that However, this week it looks like two games are getting eclipsed by Call of Duty 4 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games.   From the world of the Wii, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is out […]

Before E3 I bet most people didn’t know about Ontamarama since it is fresh in Japan too, Ontamarama was released last month.
