This Week’s New Releases (24-31 January)

There’s only one release I care about this week, and that’s Bioware’s sci-fi epic Mass Effect 2. I haven’t been this excited about a game since GTA IV (and, no, it wasn’t a letdown for me) and it’s kicking off what is sure to be a great year for gaming.

Since PS3 owners are missing out they have the 250 player FPS MAG to provide some satisfaction. You can’t really compare the two games because they’re completely different genres, but I’m not stupid enough to think that everyone likes an RPG like Mass Effect 2.

If you don’t fancy either then there’s always Forklift Truck Simulator (ha ha), which our very own Sky Taylor wrote about over on her new website. If you’re getting that over either of the aforementioned games though then I think you seriously need to get your head tested.

Here’s the full list of this week’s releases:

  • BC Kings (PC)
  • Dark Fall 3: Lost Souls (PC)
  • Eco Shooter: Plant 530 (Wii)
  • Exodus from the Earth (PC)
  • Forklift Truck Simulator (PC)
  • Garden Party World (PC)
  • MAG (PS3)
  • Mass Effect 2 (PC, X360)
  • Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter (PC)
  • Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars (Wii)
