There's all sorts of stuff coming out this week, from HD remasters to numbered sequels, spin-offs, Kinect games and Ultimate Edition bundles. Let's get stuck in.

While this week's releases lacks a big, headline release, there's plenty of interesting stuff floating around. If you had to pick a highlight, it would perhaps be the solid-looking Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Expect a review soon, but based on Rich's previews it looks to be decent enough.

Resi Raccoons is joined by the bonkers mech porn of Armored Core V and slap chop simulator Ninja Gaiden 3. All three are out everywhere but Asia this week. There's also the small matter of Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure, which is due imminently in NA and Europe.

Maybe it's me then. Resi Raccoons looks alright, plus it has a big name behind it, but it hasn't really picked up huge buzz, y'know.

And broadsheets? Nah, I still to X360A. They pay better. :D

I've heard Raccoon City is really bad, but I'm hoping those people are wrong.

Hey Lee,

No malicious intent here, but in my opinion two of gamings most respected IPs are getting releases this week... that should be headlines IMO, regardless of whether there is a new/altered dev team on both of them.

& we don't want you to go to the broadsheets either... it was a meaningless quip:) !

So Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition and Platinum Collection? Why? Seems a bit pointless really. I'm waiting for Silent Hill to hit my shores, really hope its better than Homecoming.

Ninja Gaiden III got a 3/10 on IGN. Not sure if anyone likes their reviews, but that can't be a good sign.

I was so excited for RE. After all the negative reviews last week from ppl who got there disc early, I decided to drop my pre and rent it first. A few bad reviews from some gaming site? Who cares. But from the loyal RE community? I think I'll pass and try before I buy.

Waiting for reviews for Raccoon City since the gameplay looked iffy, the rest are still quality titles but I have such a backlog that they'll have to wait until a major price drop.

I cancelled my preorder for Resi due to the mass amount of negative reports I was reading about the game. I'll wait for either a demo, it to get cheaper or a Giant Bomb quick look before I buy it

@29 Don't EVER base your opinion on a game that gets bad reviews, take Lost Planet 2 for example, game got a 6.2, still fun as hell to play with your friends.
