LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
In Stores This Week Around the World

An odd smattering of games hits stores around the world this week, including Kinect's great core hope, a reissue of one of the platform's earliest releases and the latest iteration of a hugely popular series.

But what are they? Well, the Kinect-powered Steel Battalion Heavy Armor is one of them. Taking the amazingly complicated controller needed for the original game and replacing it with arm-waving motion controls, Heavy Armor has been identified by our own Dan Webb as something of a promising core Kinect game, which is a rarity indeed. It's joined by its polar opposite, Just Dance Greatest Hits.

Elsewhere, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes reveals itself in Europe and North America, adding an open world hub, full voice acting and a bunch of the Dark Knight's best mates to the formula. Quake 4 also gets a re-issue in those territories. Check out the full release list below.

Quake 4 is getting a Games on Demand release right? I remember reading somewhere that they were shipping more copy's as well as putting it on GoD for $20. I already own Quake 4 for PC but I'll gladly throw more money towards ID & Bethesda.

I also would really like to see a Quake 1 & 2 HD bundle pack release for XBLA, do 200 Gamerscore per game making it 400 total. That is something I would definitely buy day one, & I'm sure there's a lot of nostalgic FPS fans that would jump on board with me.

Yeah Brave is out this week. Spidey next week. Those saying its a waste to get Quake 4 because of achievements doesn't realize that there is a market for older games that people missed out on because they either didn't have a 360 or PC or are just now getting into the genre.

I wish some older games would get re printed (DBZ Burst Limit) so that I could pick it up new. I don't like buying used when most times the games are scratched.

mass effect 2 platinum edition? very interesting. i wonder if we will FINALLY see an american release that has all the dlc on disc instead of paying 3x to 4x the cost of the game to actually have the whole game

Quake 4 is apparently the exact same game it was in 2006, just reissued so people can pick up new copies if they want it. Still a terribly long 1000.

i've never had a used game come scratched from amazon, perhaps you should be looking at different used game shops?

at the end of the day, you can pay $20 for a new copy of quake or $5 for a used one. i think its pretty obvious what choice most people are going to make
