Mortal Kombat X is out today, and I’m terribly excited to stab everything in the face later today, before installing the game and having a few gentlemanly matches. Word on the street, now that the game is out, is that it’s rather good. We’ve been worried that the late embargo, and the tight controls over who gets review copies might mean the game is worse than it ought to be – but it seems that fear has been for naught. Critics are almost universally impressed.

Dying Light, the new zombie survival horror from Dead Island develop Techland is out today – but only if you’re in the US. If you choose to buy the game digitally, you can play it on Friday. Those waiting for physical copies of the game within Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania will have to wait a whole month. That might be a good thing, because you’ll be waiting quite some time for a review as well.

Right, Destiny is out – which means many of you have been playing the game since yesterday. Very many of you are likely further than the point you got to in the beta. that means that not only have you gone to the Moon, but you’ve probably hit Venus and beyond.

Apparently, some rather heavily-marketed, RPG shooter with shared, MMO-esque worlds was released today. You won’t be seeing very many reviews for the game out today – save for one or two from mavericks who’ve ploughed their way through the game’s story without experiencing the game the way it’s meant to be played. Bungie has warned against day one reviews – and after playing for a few hours last night, I get their point.

Destiny is coming to assault your consoles in just under a week. It’s one of the most hyped games in the history of the medium, and from our time with it thus far it seems to be worthy of its exalted ballyhoo. Some are still unconvinced, and will be waiting for reviews of the game before making any purchasing decisions. Those people might be waiting a while.

During his long career, the Batman has faced impossible odds. Being buried alive, a broken back, various death-traps and super-powered foes. But today, the Dark Knight faces his greatest challenge yet: Dark Souls 2.

What’s new is old again, amirite? Tomb Raider hit shelves last year on various consoles and PC to widespread acclaim. Nearly a year later, and the game is back in action, with some new-gen shine. Here’s what the critics have to say.

Those who have been following me on twitter must now know that my kids have become obsessed with Minecraft. It’s all they seem to want to do now and I spend half my parenting life trying to get them to go outside and swim or something… I’ve become my mother.

For those of you who prefer the opinions of your fellow gamers over those of professional game critics up in their ivory towers, user reviews are where its at. For many gamers, those often illegible, barely constructed sentences filled with caps and racial epithets offer greater insights in to games’ worth than those of the people who’re paid to critique. And now, those will be available on Steam.

In life, there are few certainties. Death, taxes and having a massively muscled behemoth clotheslining your body out of the ring, are just a few examples. Here’s what the critics have to say so far about WWE 2K14.

Disney Infinity may have launched already in the good ol’ US of A, but surprisingly, few sites have actually reviewed the game. I’m forking out some of my own cash for a starter pack, so expect videos and impressions soon. If you can’t wait for my humbly influential opinion though, here’s what those other websites had to say about the game.

We’ve seen plenty of great games so far this year. The Last of Us, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Injustice, Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance again. We’ve also seen some that are downright terrible and smell like Batman & Robin. But Ride to Hell: Retribution just might be the worst of the lot.
