This week I’m hearing left and right how great Battlefield 1943 (Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network) is, and from the looks of it, a bunch of guys at the office are going to be waging war this weekend. Hopefully I can squeeze in sometime with the game once I get back home Sunday — if not, I’ll be enjoying some great new iPhone games, including Drop7.
