This week was the first week in a long time when there wasn't a new Xbox LIVE Arcade release on Wednesday. It isn't all doom and gloom though as we get a new release today instead. The film Pacific Rim witnesses a war between humans and huge sea creatures. To end the war, a former pilot and a trainee must drive a special weapon and save the world from the impending apocalypse. The game tie-in gives players a little more choice in the weapons that they will use.
