This week sees the release of a number of high profile video games. With money - and increasingly - time becoming such a limited resource, it becomes difficult to decide which of the games jostling for the money in your wallet will end up winning.
Itâ€™s made even tougher when two of this weekâ€™s games are potential candidates for Game of The Year. 1940â€™s crime thriller L.A Noire will be released this Friday for PS3 and Xbox 360, while PC gamers get to soak up the majesty of The Witcher 2 from tomorrow. The choice is made easy if you only play on one platform, but if youâ€™re a cash-strapped multi-platform gamer it becomes a nail-biting decision. Other notable games seeing release this week are LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (3DS, DS, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii), Brink, (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) and the quasi-episodic, half a game MX vs ATV: Alive (PC, PS3, Xbox 360). Perhaps youâ€™re a petrol-head holding out for next weekâ€™s release of DiRT3?
The question then, is WHATâ€™RE YOU BUYINâ€™?
