In terms of the release schedule, there hasn't been a dead week in ages. Have mercy on our wallets video game gods! Homefront is probably the big one - but we have the new Motorstorm, Shogun 2 looks incredible, and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is being released on PC.
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (PC) What is it? What should have been filler, turns out to be one of my favourite games of last year. Finally gets its release on PC. Should you care? If you haven't played this game yet, you should.
Homefront (360/PS/PC) What is it? THQ's military shooter that takes a familiar set of mechanics and adds a twist. Very promising new franchise. Should you care? I've got mad shooter fatigue, but I've enjoyed what I've seen of this so far.
Moto GP 2011 (360/PS3) What is it? Mega hardcore game based on the mega hardcore sport of Moto GP Should you care? I'm not a fan of the sport, but these games are always lovingly crafted and extremely well made.
Motorstorm Apocalypse (PS3) What is it? A massive reboot of the Motorstorm brand that should pay off - great game with a mad sense of scale. Should you care? Your call - I've always enjoyed this series.
Okamiden (DS) What is it? Viciously cute sequel to the PS2 classic, shrunk down to DS size. Should you care? Depends if you liked the original, and if you feel like going back to your DS. I still haven't finished Ghost Trick yet!
Major League Baseball 2K11 (360/PS3) What is it? If you build it. He will come. Should you care? Go the distance.
Shogun Total War 2 (PC) What is it? Massive scale strategy game. Should you care? It's an ncredible looking, massive scale effort. I was impressed and I'm not typically a fan of strategy games.
Top Spin 4 (360/PS3) What is it? A tennis game, yo. Should you care? A bit more 'simmy' than Virtua Tennis, which is good.
