This week http://the1upshow.1up.com brings you more games than ever before. First up, http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=4547486 and I offer our impressions from a violent barrage of http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3155769 multiplayer sessions with developer Red Storm and Ubisoft. After the beating we took, they treated The 1UP Show (and you) to a first look at a brand-new map you won't see anywhere else -- "Hydrodam."

Many of you might know by now that 1UP Executive Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=4549175 has a not-so-secret love of Japanese game tapes. He got us excited about one that didn't get lost in translation -- http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3149609. Mielke learns that 1UP Editor http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=7454831&publicUserId=5048614 doesn't need much encouragement to enjoy a game that asks you to use bazookas to destroy giant ants that are attacking Tokyo. Would you?

Giant bugs not your bag of apples? How about an exclusive peek at http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3156209, the upcoming expansion to the award-winning, best-selling RPG The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion? I sat down with fellow Oblivion-maniac http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=5345401 to ask the one guy in the office who's played the new content, 1UP Managing Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=5324853, what's going down in the land of Cyrodiil.

So, we've been keeping a secret and it hasn't been easyhttp://egm.1up.com's Executive Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=1002415 teased the reveal of a brand-new PSP game a few weeks ago on http://1upyours.1up.com, but we weren't able to talk about it...until now. That game? http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3156895. We have an exclusive peek at a couple of levels with our resident Castlevania experts Shane and 1UP's Features Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=5379721.

We end this week on a celestial note. 1UP's Previews Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=5380373 is a self-proclaimed http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=2018842 super-fan. So, when we got a demo disk for http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3148722 in the office, he was hot to play it. EGM's Previews Editor http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=5443146 and our own http://www.1up.com/do/my1Up?publicUserId=1002411 sit down to share their feelings about Kratos' fall from Heaven and his violent tendencies.

All of this, plus a dramatic showdown between Mielke and Bettenhausen before the http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3150467 Office Tournament of Champions(ish). You'll have to wait until Feb 16. for the startling conclusion to that story line, though -- next week we'll be at the D.I.C.E. conference, so no episode.

Watch the show, and if you like what you see, how about you throw us a courtesy http://www.digg.com/podcasts/The_1UP_Show?
