Shippin' Out: February 28-March 6: Bad Company 2

Electronic Arts' latest military first-person shooter takes point, Sony and 2K Sports release their annual MLB double-header, Supreme Commander 2 debuts, and Mega Man hits 10 in a busy week.

130 Comments

The early 2010 parade of high-profile games continues without pause this week, as Electronic Arts' anticipated Battlefield: Bad Company 2 leads a solid lineup of new releases. The DICE-developed shooter won't be deploying alone, as retailers will also be receiving the year's new baseball games, the latest massive-scale real-time strategy game from Gas Powered Games, and more.

The world of Bad Company 2 is littered with dead bodies. Watch your step.
The world of Bad Company 2 is littered with dead bodies. Watch your step.

A direct sequel to the 2008 console exclusive, Bad Company 2 picks back up with the derelict B Company, which comprises a fictitious US military's expendable misfits and outcasts. Destructible environments, which were a core component of the original game, will again play front and center in Bad Company 2, thanks to further revisions to its proprietary Frostbite game engine. EA is also placing a new emphasis on vehicular combat, with 15 different rides from which to choose.

The week will also see the return of baseball, as Major League Baseball spring training games kick off and this season's new baseball efforts from 2K Sports and Sony hit store shelves. Sony's MLB 10: The Show will be hitting the electronic giant's PlayStation family of systems, while 2K Sports' MLB 2K10 will appear on all major consoles and handhelds, as well as the PC.

PC gamers more interested in strategy than sports will be able to check out Supreme Commander 2. Picking up 25 years after the events depicted in 2007's highly acclaimed PC original, Supreme Commander 2 lets players assume command of three separate factions, each with its own special and experimental war-waging units. The game's single-player campaign features more than 18 missions, while multiplayer accommodates play for up to eight.

Rounding out the biggest of the new releases is the freshly dated Mega Man 10 for the Wii. The latest retro-styled downloadable adventure for the Blue Bomber will feature the usual gauntlet of robotic villains, as well as a new "easy mode" and the ability to play as either Mega Man or Proto-Man from the outset. Mega Man 10 is also set to hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this month, though Capcom hasn't confirmed exactly when.

For further details on the week's games, visit GameSpot's New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and the Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later this week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.

I am getting Lunar Silver Star Harmony. I have had it pre-ordered for a few months. I loved the PSX remake and I can't wait to see what XSeed does with it. I need to charge my PSP before I go to bed tonight.

@taylormadederek I know; I just can't get into the G.I. Joe games like Modern Warfare and Battlefield. At this point, an FPS game needs to be REALLY unique and innovative to make me take notice; something like No One Lives Forever 2, which had levels where you fought off ninjas in a trailer park, or blasted mimes with a Tommy Gun from the back of a Scottish guy's tricycle. As for The Show, I'm a notorious cheapskate. I usually buy it every year but not at full retail. Since it's just a roster upgrade and a few tweaks for me, I wait for the price drop.

Whole lotta nothing this week, although it's nice to see Silver Star Harmony get the royal remake treatment. XSeed has really been one of the best stories in gaming the last few years, joining Atlus in the campaign to bring a lot of interesting niche titles over here that would otherwise never make it. I'll be keeping an eye or two on Mega Man 10, tho'.

funny..... gamespot refuses to mention the games that topped sales in feb 2010. Is it because Aliens vs Predator,a game which was bashed by GS for all the wrong reasons topped the charts in the UK and the US in febuary?? Yall even screwed Dantes Inferno an SocomFTB3 which are also in the top10 aswell. Seriously Gamespot ought to be ashamed. The Worst and the most misleading website at the momment. Heres a link to the VGchartz. << LINK REMOVED >> AVP topping the charts in the US and the UK. Take that gamespot, u shameless bunch.

@Onetwoindo I don't understand, from what I've played of the Single Player it looks pretty dang good & I wore the online demo out which didn't look bad either. The gameplay will be solid I'm sure. I hated MW & loved BF, so since I hate MW2 I'm sure I'll love BF2. Sorry I assumed everyone would be excited about great games releasing, I see I was wrong.

Bad Company 2 and Just Cause 2 are my March games! I wish I still had my PS3 though, I'd really like to play God of War III.

@sleepnsurf I was just going by past performances. Why did I do that? Well because I hate Baseball & really couldn't care less about either game so therefore there isn't a bubble to burst. Sorry I know you must of liked that line, but it fails here man.

Glad I waited for a good Modern FPS game instead of wasting my money on its mediocre competition... I hope BC2 breaks sales records.

Considering that my ps3, along with a few other million ps3s around the world, just bit the dust. I don't know if I'll be buying anything tomorrow. Too bad, i was really looking forwards to the only baseball game that counts, The Show.

@ Onetwoindo Not sure what you mean by telling that guy if he wants cheap games buy them for the 360??? PS3 & 360 new releases are the same price, the only cheaper option he would have is buying them for PC in which would be a $10 saving per game.

@solidniko I feel for you man, but if you were smart like myself you would have looked ahead in the past. Most of the games releasing early 2010 I preordered & paid off in the last few months of 09. In your case you may just have to sacrifice 1 game, & in your shoes I would scratch off FF.

@Egotte Yeah if you own a PS3 only or a PS3 & Xbox 360 & your a baseball fan then there shouldn't be any debate, The Show is the only option.

@blackfray How can you be disappointed when there is an awesome game like Battlefield Bad Company 2 at the top of the list? If the list only included just that 1 game it would still be great.

I've got Bad Company 2 preorder with release day delivery & that is the only game listed here that I find appealing. Nothing else releasing is worthy a purchase.

MLB 2k10 demo was horrid! Visual Concepts needs to bow out, immediately. MLB 10 The Show is the ONLY way to go. In other news, Dante's Inferno for PSP! Can't wait!

Why would anyone buy 2K10 when you can buy the superior The Show instead? Anyways, really considering buying BBC2.... I loved the demo but I hate being killed by the overpowered Apache helicopter. Anyone else found it to be overpowered? Or is there a strategy to it that I don't know about?
