This week's free champion rotation has been posted. These champions will become free to play starting tomorrow March 3rd.
We find ourselves with another week of a lot of games on the list, and no obvious picks, to me at least, for Game of the Week. The thing is, inevitably some game out of this list that I'd never heard of prior will eke out its own little following and gather momentum.
In some ways, it's made me wonder lately how much having a Game of the Week makes sense. Sure, during the more rich weeks of the fall gaming season it's easier to pick some big-name release to focus on, but for most weeks that doesn't really hold true. "Game of the Week" assumes a little bit of an outdated model where there are high-visibility previews and pre-release marketing that make a big splash, but that's becoming increasingly less common.
As we pack to travel off to PAX East this week, I'm not really going with a huge list of upcoming games that I want to try and learn about. If anything, the more I go to these conventions, the better I get at just being open to discovering something heretofore unknown. Thing is, there's probably something awesome in the list below, and I honestly have no idea what it is yet.
Still, it would be a shame not to pick something and give you guys the opportunity to tell me which game was so obviously robbed, so we'll give this week's GotW to Resident Evil Revelations 2: Episode 2. Last week's first episode appears to have been fairly well received, so here's hoping that Capcom can stick the landing.
