It has begun. The ungodly flurry of top quality releases has already kicked off in earnest with Dark Souls, Gears of War 3, FIFA 12, Forza 4, et al. It continues this week with Batman: Arkham City - and we're just getting started. My poor bank balance...
Obviously Batman: Arkham City, being that it's a genuine game of the year contender and all, is top of this week's shopping list - but Dance Central 2 is also coming out.
Who's with me guys! Guys?
Batman Arkham City (360/PS3) What is it? The best licensed game ever made? Some people think so. Should you care? Care of Batman will tear out your intestines, chuck it in a pot, and baby - you got yourself a stew! (Yes, you should bloody well care!)
Captain America (DS) What is it? Didn't this movie come out ages ago? Should you care? No.
Dance Central (360) What is it? The sequel to my second favourite game on Kinect (Child of Eden 4 Lyfe, yo). Should you care? If you have Kinect, and friends, then yes.
Dance Star Party (PS3) What is it? A game that allows you to dance and stuff I presume. Should you care? I'm sure there are a zillion better dance games out there.
Football Manager 2012 (PC) What is it? The definitive football management sim. Should you care? Far too intimidating for me, but the hardcore will enjoy.
The Sims 3 Pets (PC) What is it? The final death gasp of a brand in decline. Should you care? "Please... let me die!"
