Spring is springing up everywhere at Ziff Towers this week. Games are finally starting to really bloom and this week's show takes a peek at some of the first sprouts.

First up, Team 1UP Show has been taking every chance to play Warhawk. We asked 1UP's ringleader Sam Kennedy and Reviews Editor Andrew Pfister what they think of the game that has made our own usually-unflappable taskmaster, Mark MacDonald, "giddy".

If you're like us, you're desperate for something to play on your Wii. EGM's News Editor Michael Donahoe catches Mark satisfying himself with an import version of the strategy game Fire Emblem: The Goddess of Dawn. It won't arrive stateside until this summer, but when it does, will it be worth your time?

Nearly all the peaceful denizens of Ziff Towers are a-buzzin' about the Grand Theft Auto IV teaser trailer hitting the web this week (check out the HD version here!). We took a deeper look with our own GTA-maniacs -- EGM's Editor-in-Chief Dan "Shoe" Hsu, Reviews Editor Greg Ford, and the 1UP Network's Top Banana, John Davison. What do they see when they watch it for the upteenth-time?

Finally, we have to tell you a secret...we play PC games, too. Games for Windows Editor Shawn Elliott suggests that the 1UP Show's resident PC FPS lover, Ryan O'Donnell, check out S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. What do they think of this particular post-nuclear disaster shooter?

Thanks to 1UP.com for sharing the news with us!
