Anyone who's watched TV this month can tell you that this week is for playing "Dead Space 2," which your mom hates, apparently. (Ugh.) If you're alienated by the "Dead Space 2" ad campaign, or just don't like games that try to scare the pants off you, Take-Two Interactive, parent company of Rockstar Games and 2K Games, has put a whole bunch of its downloadable games and add-ons on sale on Xbox Live.
The January lull in new video game releases makes it a great time to catch up on last year's games, which is why I'll be writing about my 2010 Game of the Year next week. It also provides an opportunity to look ahead at the games that could compete for 2011's honors.
