Tis a strange week in the video game release calendar. There are about a zillion bloody LEGO games being released, one super major release in the form of Elder Scrolls Online and a Goat Simulator. Even Don Bradman is joining the party. If you need me I'll be in the corner playing Dark Souls II. Also: crying.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (PC)
What is it? The 2D handheld version of Batman: Arkham Origin, now on PC. Should you care? This was the best idea ever, and then it wasn't that great. Which is a shame.
Don Bradman Cricket 14 (360/PS3)
What is it? A cricket game! We haven't had one of those since that last one that was a complete disaster! Should you care? If you like cricket and you want a cricket game, might as well go with this one. You don't have much choice!
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition (PS4/PS Vita)
What is it? Wait a minute... Dynasty Warriors 8? Surely we're on a high number than that by now... Should you care? Ah look, it's not bad — apparently — but I'd avoid unless you're some sort of Dynasty Warriors completionist.
Goat Simulator (PC)
What is it? It's a game about being a goat. A goat simulator if you will. Should you care? People are going crazy over this. It looks insane.
Halo: Spartan Assault (PC)
What is it? A weird third-person, top-down Halo thing. Was released on console a while back. Should you care? Yeah sure, it's not amazing, but strange enough to be interesting.
LEGO Friends (DS)
What is it? One of a million LEGO games coming out this month. Should you care? If you're going to buy one LEGO game this month, don't make it this one.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (DS)
What is it? It's the DS version of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, totally late to the party. Should you care? If you're going to buy this (and it is good) buy it on another platform.
The Elder Scrolls Online (PS4/PC)
What is it? This game feels like it's already in the wild considering all the betas and whatnot. But it gets its official release this week! Should you care? I think you should care. I suspect most of you have already decided either way.
The LEGO® Movie Videogame (Xbox One/PS4/PS3/360/Wii U/3DS/PC/PS Vita)
What is it? One of many LEGO games releasing this month, but maybe the one you should actually buy. Should you care? LEGO games, for the ridiculous amount of releases, actually manage to maintain a pretty high standard for the most part. If you have a kid that loves LEGO, you could do a lot worse.
