Hitman: Absolution is the main event this week, sneaking into stores across the world. And while it's unlikely to dethrone Codblops II in the charts, fingers crossed it does well. Despite some flaws, we rather liked it.

Elsewhere, Europe finally gets its hands on LEGO Lord of the Rings and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two jumps into action across most of the globe. 

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse also arrives, despite little to no promotion by its publisher. Are we to presume it's crap? We'll find out soon. 

Full list below.

Sunday is the start of each week. What are you smoking.

They did forget plain and simple.

@5 Why is it sad? If you enjoy playing Lego LOTR, that's all that matters.

@9 Sunday is part of the "weekend", and most UK calendars got Mon-Sun not Sun-Sat. The only reason calendars in NA are like that here is because Sunday is "gods" day
