Going into the second full week of July, there's no relief for gamers seeking a flood of new releases. However, the spigot isn't completely dry, with a few notable titles hitting the retail market. Electronic Arts' NCAA Football 10 leads the charge, available Tuesday for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable. The football sim features a new "player lock" system, in which players can bind the camera to locate and follow any athlete on the field. The bound character can then be controlled as the sports action unfolds.

Like Rick and Lori, these two college ballers soon realize that they, too, are trapped in a game.

For the PSP, Unbound Saga is jumping out from the comic book world. This side-scrolling brawler is based on a story whose characters are aware they are heroes in a work of fiction. Protagonists Rick and Lori trek through 10 scenarios on a quest to discover why they're trapped in a fantasy world. Also on the Sony portable console is NIS America's unusual and long-winded title Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do to Deserve This? The 8-bit-style strategy game allows players to create deadly dungeons filled with a menagerie of monsters. Both of these PSP games will only be downloadable from the PlayStation Network.
