As the X360A team's MCM Expo hangovers fade to a dull ache, it's time to turn our attention to this week's new releases.

At retail across the world over the next seven days there's a couple of notable games to get stuck into. First up is the Codies racer GRID 2, which arrives not only with a great pedigree but also with an achievement list crafted by this very website. Meanwhile, the EA shooter FUSE arrives to (let's be honest) not a lot of fanfare. We'll have reviews soon.

Check out the full list below.

  • Dodonpachi Saidaioujou

I like the look of FUSE better when it was Overstrike.

Is it 100% sure GRID 2 won't have cockpit view ?

Just want to be completely sure. If it's not there I'll have to pass.

When I preordered Fuse it was around twentieth in the pre-order chart, GRID 2 was second (After GTA V). Yeah, it's going to bomb but that won't stop me enjoying it. That's if possibly losing my job on Wednesday doesn't get in the way.

Seems like it was DOA well before the demo got here with it brushed off with reasons that at can be described as moronic at best;

EA? Boooooo!

Insomniac developing cross-platform? Traitors! (Go to PS3T. This actually happened)

Looks terrible because it was developed with crossplatform in mind (PS3T reasoning again)

Looked better when it was Overstrike (Please link me to that Overstrike gameplay vid you saw....oh wait, it doesn't exist)

Comments that just say "Generic", along with hundreds of others, making that complain generic in itself

Reminds me of Borderlands! (Compare with above complaint *head explodes*)

Another Third Person Shooter (As a fan of the genre, I'd say it's done enough to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack)

Then you've got those who've played the demo for "15 minutes" or less. They've played a game with 4 unique (from each other) characters through once...yeah. I'm sure they really got to grips with it.

Just annoyed. It seems people aren't even giving this a fair chance. Don't see anyone brushing GRID 2 of as "Just another driving game".

@7 well, I played the demo once, as only the one character, decided it wasn't for me and went about my day. That's the entire purpose of demos, right? Props to them for doing a demo at least, Codies plain couldn't be arsed for Grid 2! Lol

I'm pretty interested in Fuse for the reason I loved Resistance 3: awesome guns.

So I guess it's a pretty safe bet to say that both FUSE and GRID 2 are doomed to fail regardless of how they actually turn out?

There is zero buzz for either of them, plus the fact that summer is death for games.

@Minarvia, Well, I've heard they will be, but the truth will be known once they're both out this week.

Didn't mind the demo for FUSE. But I'm still not convinced about it. I hate racing games, so it seems it's a quiet week for me.

Look forward Fuse and GRID 2. :D

I not usually like many fighting and racing games but I do look forward GRID 2 so if quite difficult racing game (which is I don't like hard time through difficult racing) so I will have try practice on it. I hope game got easy difficult - difficulties option.

I had played demo Fuse and it is fun game. Cannot wait to get through and complete campaign and clean up many cheevos.

GRID 2 of course going be best game this week.

I cannot wait Remember Me so far and it is next week. :D

No cockpit view. I'll pass. Maybe when it goes down to $15 or so used.

I thought GRID was a good game. kind of easy. even on the hardest ddifficulty setting. But I dont think I will get it because I have some other racing games that I havnt beaten yet. (Shift 2 Unleashed and Burnout Paradise) mostly because of the screen shake when turning and the online aspect. People use me as their brake. how cheap

I'll pick up GRID 2 when it goes on sale. Looks fun but honestly the achievements look pretty not fun and certainly not rewarding (I know we're not supposed to say this on the site, and I'm not doing it to bash the admins, I just legitimately don't like it at all). It looks like a game I'll pick up, beat quickly, and never touch again.
