New This Week. 14th March 2010

Welcome to’s weekly feature which tell you the games that you need to care about coming out in the next week.

This week, there are a few more big releases:

Metro 2033, Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening and God Of War III

I will more than likely be picking up all 4 of the titles listed above before March is over and I am sure many of our readers find themselves with the difficult decision of what to buy so here is a question to help you make up your mind.

Do you own a PS3? Yes, then simply just buy God of War 3. End of story. It’s epic.

If you own any other system it’s a more difficult choice and will come down to your preferred genre as most as covered with this weeks releases, and this week is one of the strongest weeks for releases in 2010.

Metro 2033 is an action-oriented first person shooter with survival horror and RPG elements thrown in for good measure. The game is based on the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It will be released for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

My View: From the first screenshot that I saw this game reminded of STALKER which is a game I really enjoyed. I’ll be picking this up on the PC as it promises to be one of the most graphically intensive games to date and as long as my monitor supports it I’ll be playing in glorious 3D for that extra dimension.

Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is the latest installment of the popular Command & Conquer franchise and is set for release March 16, 2010. It will constitute the final chapter in the Tiberium saga. The main twist in the gameplay this time around how the player will not have to gather resources to build an army, unlike past C&C games.

My view: I expect a polished continuation of the Command & Conquer series that fans will enjoy.  Whether its actually the final chapter, we’ll have to wait and see. I simply cannot see EA calling a day on one of their most successful IPs just yet.

Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening is an expansion for Dragon Age: Origins.

My view: If you’ve played through 50 or 60 hours of the main story already then this expansion presents you with more quests to complete, new spells, an higher level cap and many more items. If you haven’t already be playing the original game, I can’t see this expansion making you want to start now.

Other notable releases this week:

Lips: Party Classics (360)
Moto GP 09/10 (360, PS3)
Rugby League 3 (Wii)
