Ah, the first full summer release week is here! Does this release week have what it takes to break the summer gaming blues?

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition hits the early summer with a confident SHORYUKEN and a deafening SONIC BOOM! The Final version of Street Fighter IV releases on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Like Gundam Dynasty Warrior games? Then applaud the release of Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 on the PS3 and 360.  Sniper: Ghost Warrior hits the PS3. Beyond Good and Evil HD is listed to come out for the PSN this week but I swear it came out already.

Fans of quirky Japanese games should be happy with the Xbox Live release of Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax Edition . The 3DS gets a HUGE release in the form of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Two big releases and the 3DS is starting to roll while it’s nearest and dearest competitor (PSP) continues to sink with yet another no show.

Pick of the Week: Im really starting to catch some 3DS fever! Do I own one? No, but two big releases in two weeks and the fact that I love most things Resident Evil. I’m also a Street Fighter fan. Fond memories of the original Street Fighter 2 and laying the smacketh down with the Flash Kick makes this decision tough. Well it’s my column and I’ll pick what I want to. Tie: Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition and Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D!
