This Week in Gaming

The Gaming To Be Had February 1-7, 2010

It’s the calm before the storm as this week will deliver a lull in the action after the release of Mass Effect 2, MAG and No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle and before the release of Bioshock 2 and Dante’s Inferno next Tuesday. Notably, PC gamers will get the chance to play Star Trek Online as the hotly anticipated MMO comes out on Tuesday and Xbox 360 gamers will get a chance to play the multiplayer levels from Halo 3: ODST in Halo 3 with the release of Halo 3: Mythic Map Pack 2.

A break is probably needed this week anyways as gamers are delving into the many, many, many hours of Mass Effect 2 goodness and getting sucked into hundreds of massive online matches in MAG.
