This week in new releases is soft on quantity, but heavy on quality if you’re into brawlers, Rock Band, Wacthmen, fishing, and oh yeah, motion-controlled beach leisure activities.

G-Force, the game based on the movie of the same name drops this Tuesday for every platform under the sun, and in case somehow you have avoided the advertising onslaught for the movie/game, well, you’re probably better off.

Also on Tuesday the Rock Band: Country Track Pack hits shelves for all major home consoles, begging the question, do you have a proper cowboy hat to get your rock on with?

Two days later, on Thursday, King of Fighters XII hits PS3, and if you’ve been reading Blast in the past few months, you know all about this HD revival of the series and how much pure WIN is packed in.

And finally, Wii Sports Resorts makes it’s North American debut on Sunday, July 26. We first heard of this title at E3 2008 and is likely the hinge on which Nintendo is cementing its future in motion-controlled gaming. Bundled with a Wii MotionPlus, this title, set on a sunny, summery beach, is hoping to revisit those memories of 2006 when we all first played Wii Sports, but with heightened immersion fueled by true 1:1 motion tracking.

Marc has had his hands on a copy for some time now, so you can expect our review in a timely fashion.

Enjoy the week, readers!
