We’ve had some big releases already this year — Uncharted 3 last week, Battlefield 3 the week before — but this week is the big one. We have Modern Warfare 3, which will undoubtedly shift a ridiculous amount of units, and the Kotaku people’s champ Skyrim. Woe betide any other title that dares release alongside them.
Cars 2 (3DS) What is it? Game about that Pixar movie — you know the one you don’t care about probably? Why didn’t they make the Incredibles 2 instead?! Should you care? They should’ve made the Incredible 2 instead.
Modern Warfare 3 (360/PS3/PC) What is it? The most anticipated game of all time says the ad on the telly — but I’m more interested in how these guys pulled it off with a skeleton staff at Infinity Ward and a second studio. I have faith. Should you care? There does seem to be a bit of a mini Modern Warfare backlash, but I’ve always enjoyed them.
Motionsports Adrenaline (PS3) What is it? I’m assuming this is the PS3’s version of Wii Sports. Should you care? I’m pretty sure this game isn’t Skyrim.
Shinobi (3DS) What is it? A reboot of the Shinobi series. Should you care? This is the first I’m hearing about this. Shame, because I like Shinobi.
The Black Eyed Peas Experience (360/Wii) What is it? Another dance game from Ubisoft? Should you care? Anyone getting a Guitar Hero, milking the genre dry, vibe from this?
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (360/PS3/PC) What is it? It’s that game the kids are all talking about. Should you care? Even if you don’t care, you should totally care.
