The Witcher 3 is easily the most anticipated game this year – something the game’s million pre orders certainly attests to. The review embargo is up for the 25 or so publications able to review the thing, which certainly doesn’t include us. We’ll be getting the game quite a bit later to review – but here’s the current critical consensus on Geralt’s last videogame adventure.

There’s another game out this week that doesn’t rhyme with Moral Wombat or Hand Deft Daughter. And that game is Titan Souls baby! While it may not boast buckets of blood or a trio of homicidal lead characters, the game still has plenty of charm. Here’s what the critics have to say so far about it.

Every year, billions of game developers die because of Metacritic. An arbitrary collection of numbers and some other aggregate crap that makes no sense to a guy who barely passed his Maths exam in Grade 7, it’s clear that this system is holding us back. But Lazygamer has heard your cries. Lazygamer is here to save the day. And as the most important website in Africa (Behind Bathroom Bizarre Online, and, we feel that we have a duty to be a shining beacon of inspiration.

I’m not saying that I’m scared of Resident Evil. But i am saying that if anyone asks me to review the damn game, I’ll run to the hills quicker than a Ronnie James Dio song. Resident Evil is back once again, as the rather scrumptious 2002 remake gets another chance to shine outside of the Nintendo GameCube on other platforms. And it looks like Capcom may have a winner here.

People of Lazygamer! Lend me your ears! And this time, clean them first! I bring news of the latest release from the Germanic border, where Total War: Rome 2 has waged war on reviewers across a front that stretches from the new world all the way to a tiny village in France where an indomitable band of Gauls still resists the Pax Romana. Here are the latest results!

Two years after Crysis 2 was released to groaning under-equipped PCs, and it’s time for part trois to once again set a few 3D benchmarks on fire. The scores are in, and the general consensus is that Crysis 3 is one purdy looking game overall. Here’s a look at what the critics who got the game before us are saying.

The third chapter in “Oh crap nononono gross necromorphs I want my mommy” or Dead Space 3, may only be out on Friday for us European consumers, but that doesn’t mean that other territories aren’t jamming a plasma cutter right now. North American gamers got their hands on the trilogy-capper yesterday, just in time for some review scores to go live. So what kind of game is Dead Space then?

Dammit, I swore on the grave of that hobo that I did not run over while partying with three attractive friends one fateful night that I would never play JRPG’s again! Who wants an engrossing story and a massive open world filled with epic magical battles, huh? And then along came Ni No Kuni, a game with freakin’ powerhouse visuals from the Studio Ghibli brand. And according to early reviews, it’s good. Damn good.

Even though it lacks the superb feature of having mercenaries trying to kill you while shouting “SKIET DIE BLIKSEM”, Far Cry 3 looks to be a solid contender for game of the year. The review scores are in, and they’re just one explosive collection of mental praise and insane love. Here’s a look at what the critics have to say while staring down the barrel of a gun while under the influence of some jungle hallucinogens.

Hitman Absolution rolls out to dispense some bar-coded bald justice on scantily clad nuns in latex tomorrow, as it the cult classic franchise returns after a lengthy absence. But can a game with an emphasis on creative solutions and single-player content really succeed in this turbulent landscape of contemporary online warzone shooters and islands infected with madness an exploding everythings? According to these scores, yes it can.

Happy backstab day guys (WHY GEOFF? WHHHYYYYYY?!)! The third core chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is officially out today, waiting for you to jump in and engage in some historical combat. And it looks like the game is a winner so far.

Assassin’s Creed III will be getting a US release tomorrow, while we’ll be getting it just a day later. Stock is already in stores and there should be no delays with the title at all. those of you eagerly chomping at the bit might be happy to know that the game’s received its first reviews – and they’re looking might promising indeed.

In this crazy period of AAA release after AAA release, and games making lustful eyes at our wallets, there’s just one game - amongst dozens of admittedly fantastic titles - that stands out above the rest for me, and that’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It’s out tomorrow, after what seems an eternity’s wait. We’re still waiting on a review copy, so we’ll be standing in lines tomorrow to get our Dragon-hunting-simulator, like the rest of you.

As expected, it’s cleaning up as far as review scores go. Here’s a round up of the currently available reviews. Just be warned - it makes the wait until tomorrow even more painful to bear.

IGN has posted up a roundup of their Move and Kinect reviews and while it’s entirely their opinion it is interesting to see just how bad some of the launch titles were scored.

In general neither side blew them away with the top titles on both platforms peaking at 8/10. Kinect had 2 titles that scored a 8 being Dance Central and Kinect Sports while the Move only had 1 launch title with an 8, Eyepet: Your Virtual Pet.

The ongoing battle between Microsoft and Sony is one that shall not be resolved in the near future, I promise you that. In between the heated arguments and accusations on which is the better console, the ammunition is endless. Today, however, I decided to sift through all the fanboy bantering and focus on a single bullet…exclusivity. Since their release, both consoles have enjoyed quite a few big names in exclusivity, and today we are going to take a look at their line ups, and decide once and for all, who has the better menu. So kick back in your favourite lazy-boy reclining chair, get yourself a beer (or a juice, depending on your age) and…leets geeeeeet reeeeeady toooooooo ruuuuuuumble!
