Gamasutra's round-up of worldwide video game releases, "Release This!", takes a look at every game title we know to be shipping to stores this week, in an exclusively compiled list.
As gamers gear up for the yearly grind that is the Electronic Entertainment Expo, new releases slow to a crawl, with relatively few titles debuting in any region this week. Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
and SiN: Episode 1
represent the week's highlights, but if you happen to reside in Europe and enjoy games about not playing soccer, you might instead prefer titles like Championship Manager 2006
, The Ultimate World Cup Quiz
, or the upcoming Stadium Turf Maintenance X-treme.
You can now read the full Gamasutra column
, covering all of the game software we know to be available -- across all platforms and regions -- for the week ending May 13, 2006.
