Hi again gamers! Erin here! Welcome to the Week In Geek, where I’ll be giving you the updates on Comic Book releases, conventions and events, and so much more!

Strong or Weak for the Week

To start this weeks article, let’s chat a bit about the video games coming out! As you may have seen from my article last Friday, Strong or Weak, I highlighted the new MLB 2k13, Tomb Raider and Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of Dusk.  Today was the release of MLB 2k13, as well as Tomb Raider, and Atelier is released tomorrow! For those of you who have already picked up your copies of MLB or Tomb Raider, feel free to post some feedback in a comment!
