As the holiday shopping season careens ever closer, the video game release schedule gets ever more crowded. This week sees the frenzy reach its pinnacle, as a mind-bending (not to mention wallet -tormenting) set of first-class games hits the streets. Unless you're a millionaire with nothing to do except play video games (in which case feel free to invite us over - we'll bring the drinks), you'll never have time to check them all out yourself, so here's a summary of every big name appearing on shelves this week.
You'll be spoilt for choice. Every platform gets its share of love, from the most powerful of gaming PCs to the lowliest of portable systems. Just about every genre has its spotlight, too, so no matter what you're into, from questionably-mustachioed plumbers flying through space to big fat guys pretending to hit each other, there's a triple-A game dropping this week that'll put a grin on your face.
