WWE 12
In Stores This Week Around the World

You can teall that this week is the last big push for games in stores this week, as some territories see the family friendly fare coming to the fore in titles like Ben 10, Let's Cheer!, Winter Stars and Hole in the Wall. However, this week also has WWE '12 and King of Fighters XIII, so it's not all bad.

Batman: Arkham City also launches in Asia, while Lord of the Rings: War in the North arrives in PAL regions, having been out for a good few weeks in North America. Rayman Origins also comes to PAL territories this week, bringing some light-hearted and colourful fun.

All in all, not a bad little selection of games then, but expect things to calm down, as everything settles and we begin the countdown to the holiday season. Yay!

Pretty jealous about the Metal Gear Solid HD collection that for some unfair reason Asia seem to be getting this week.

I'm from the Netherlands (Europe) and I own LotR: War in the North since 9 November (bought in a local store) So I'm not sure about the release date of the game in other countries in Europe.

I'm pretty broke at the moment and luckily, don't fancy any of these. I might pick up WWE 12 at some point cheap, but I'm not really a WWE fan these days and all the guys I used to like are gone (a few are dead...).

Plus, still playing Skyrim!

@21 I got Jillian Michaels early. It is not easy unless you are fit. The other 2 should be easy to get lots of achievements.

@ #22 - Yeah, too bad the game isn't all that good. It's repetitive in the extreme, bland in both story and the playable characters, and the interface could be a lot better. Reviving your teammates while you're getting swarmed is extremely annoying, too. Perhaps you'll enjoy it more than I did, but I'm thankful I only played this as a rental on a friend's 360.

I'm getting WWE 12 for the 360 for custom soundtracks. I am also getting Tekken Hybrid Limited Edition for PS3 because Tekken is bad ass.

Hopefully KoF 13 doesn't remind us in any way of the atrocity that was KoF 12. That had nice hand drawn characters but thats it.
