New Release Snap Judgements 6/30/2008

This week ispretty limited in terms of big releases. We have a another installment in the Guitar Hero franchise and we have a repackaging of a top tier Xbox 360 game to get you excited for the next installment in that franchise.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2) Pick of the Week

The first iteration of Guitar Hero that focuses on a singular band, although it does have bands that Aerosmith has been influenced by or they like, is aimed at the Boston rockers and, for Guitar Hero and Aerosmith fans, is easily the game to get this week. The Guitar Hero controls are always great and the game, if you like Steve Tyler and Co., should feature a good roster of songs.

Gears of War Refresh (Xbox 360)

Unless you have been living under a rock or in a bomb shelter in central Los Angeles – I did just go with a Blast From The Past reference for some reason – you probably already own and played Gears of War. If you are a new owner of the console and want to get excited for the sequel, which comes to retail this November, you can pick the game up for far cheaper than the $39.99 price tag and, with an idea of a story at best, you aren’t missing much any way.

What will you be picking up this week?
