Satisfy your need for speed and your need to blow stuff up at the same time with Blur, an arcade-style racing game from Bizarre Creations. Using power-ups and speed boosts to outrun the competition, Blur focuses on Burnout-style high speed intensity and includes a full-fledged online multiplayer system so you can go toe-to-toe with your buddies locally and online. Put the pedal to the metal this Tuesday!

Mario is back in 3D for his latest adventure in Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Nintendo Wii. Picking up where the first Mario Galaxy left off, it's up to you to battle through all manner of enemies, gravitational pulls, and modes of travel as you traverse from planet to planet to rescue the Princess from the clutches of Bowser. Added bonus? Yoshi is on board this time around!
