Games to get in March

The assault on your wallet continues this month with another ridiculously good selection of videogames to spend all your money on. Yay!

2nd- Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PS3, 360)
2nd- MLB 10: The Show (PS3)
9th- Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, 360)
9th- Yakuza 3 (PS3)
14th- Pokemon: Soul Silver (DS)
14th- Pokemon: Heart Gold (DS)
16th- God of War III (PS3)
16th- Resonance of Fate (PS3, 360)
16th- Dragon Age: Awakening (PS3, 360)
16th- Metro 2033 (360)
23rd- Red Steel 2 (Wii)
23rd- Just Cause 2 (PS3, 360)
30th- Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (PS3)

Talk about some powerhouses. The month begins with a bang as the new Bad Company hits store shelves early and, if my time with the beta and demo speak for the full game, shooter fans are in for a huge treat.

Shortly after, Americans finally get their hands on the ridiculously long awaited Final Fantasy XIII. We may have seen screens for this title before FFXII even released but, hey, better a lengthy wait than never, right? With no towns, little character interaction and nothing to offer in the line of mini-games, this iteration aims to boil the RPG genre down to its most basic elements and focus on story and combat. Here's hoping it's a winning formula!

There's a lot of (hopefully) great stuff coming out this month, including the subterranean shooter Metro 2033, the latest in the Pokemon series and the over-the-top antics of Just Cause 2, but I once again find myself being especially drawn to a single title. In March, it's God of War III. I'm a huge fan of the series and the year-old E3 demo left me wanting more and, come mid-month, I'll get exactly that.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have celestial Greek patricide to daydream about.
