This week it's back to business as normal after the insanity of E3 and we've got a number of notable releases to get stuck into. The newest and freshest of all of these is Lollipop Chainsaw, Grasshopper Manufacture's cheerleader and chainsaw-fueled exercise in oddity. It's the only game to hit all regions this week and is bound to inspire lots of "Are Games Sexist?" headlines across the gaming press. The most important question, however, is "Is it any good?" We'll find out soon enough.

Elsewhere, Australia gets a belated release of Game of Thrones. The middling RPG may have picked up some mixed reveiews, but those still keen to live out their adventures in Westeros will want to overlook that, especially as the TV series is now in post-Season 2 hiatus. I for one seriously can't wait for its return and the RPG may plug the gap nicely, despite its shortcomings. The King in the North!

Meanwhile, North America can get behind the wheel of Codemasters' DiRT Showdown this week. A spin-off of the developer's well-received rally sim series, Showdown itself has been on the receiving end of some admiring words. In our review Rich said, "Unapologetically brash, bold and loud, DiRT Showdown is Codemasters' racing id unleashed. And it's freakin' great." Sounds like a recommendation to me.
