Wednesday Afternoon New Releases and ShackReviews

This isn't going to continue creeping later into the week, I promise!

I'm looking forward to picking up a few of this week's games, once I find the time. Clover Studio's God Hand (PS2) has been on my list for a while now (trailer) and with the exception of one outlier it's been getting the sorts of reviews I've expected. Agenda's Clubhouse Games (NDS) is also coming out, and I think that one's a pretty sure bet. It has some 40 board and card games, nearly all of which are playable over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection; it's hard to pass that up in portable form.
