Game Releases: Week of March 5th 2012 “The Sims 3: Showtime” Edition

Forget Mass Effect 3, I have a date with Katy Perry and a copy of The Sims 3: Showtime. Don’t laugh, she is single after all–and a virtual version is just as good as the real thing, right? Seriously though, I’m picking up Mass Effect 3 (the sky is so blue right now), Street Fighter X Tekken, and Ridge Racer: Unbounded. This is a solid list, but one game sticks out (like a Katy Perry fan at a death metal concert). It’s Major League Baseball 2K12…. for the PS2! The PS2 is still a thing? Yikes, it’s hard to believe a console that came out when I was in middle school is still getting new games.

  • Oh nice, thanks for the list!

    BLADES OF TIME!!! Not enough words can express how much I’m looking forward to this one.Sims 3… meh. Never played the first Sims, but I did play Sims 2 rather extensively. Totally skipped Sims 3 because it didn’t have “University” and “Open for Business” type of expansions, which I thought were the most fun. Looking forward to Sims 4 instead.Mass Effect 3, well, that’s a given lol. Though I never played the first two, so I won’t be getting this third game right away. But I do know a friend who’s waiting in line for midnight release tonight. XDStreet Fighter x Tekken… If there’s anything I’ve learned about Capcom’s attempt at milking the cash cow with their fighters in recent years, then it’s the fact that I should wait for the “super” or “ultimate” edition that will come out within six months to a year from now. If all else, I’d rather look forward to Tekken x Street Fighter (by Namco).
