Now that the holiday rush is behind us, release dates have been updated for all systems. There are several games coming out for all consoles, but PS2 owners can also look forward to drowning in games this coming March.

One thing about Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance on Xbox: slowdown. Whenever there's plenty of action to depict, the game seems to slow down. It's especially noticeable with the rain in the opening outdoor sequences, which reduces the game to a painful crawl compared with its other environments. People wonder how Splinter Cell will ever translate to the vastly underpowered GameCube and PS2; I'm wondering how they ever translated MGS2 to the Xbox.
