Red Dead, Alan Wake, More--Weekly Roundup 5/17

by Jeff Cork on May 17, 2010 at 03:47 AM

Well, what do you know? Finally, a great week for new releases. Over the next few days some big names like Alan Wake and Red Dead Redemption will be landing on shelves, alongside some other games like Split/Second, Trauma Team, and the latest Prince of Persia installment. That's good and all, but the biggest media release this week has to be the last regular episode of Lost on Tuesday, followed by the series finale on Sunday. So sad. At least we'll still have Fringe.
