Hey! You, the individual who is poorly informed of today's abysmally uneventful gaming news! Pay attention to me right now. Er. Watch The Destructoid Show.

Today, we have some releases of the week. You can read about all of them right here. More importantly, Maurice has put up his review for Assassin's Creed Revelations. In other news, EA is doing that thing again where they're a jerk, and this guy who has a similar last name to mine really wants Modern Warfare 3 to get better grades. Er. Scores. Also, Batman: Arkham City is having some problems keeping track of your saved games.

Hey gang! We're alive, somehow, even after the events that took place this weekend. If you missed it, we did a 24 hour Extra Life livestream to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, and YOU GUYS donated over $6,000. So you rule. Here's an animated GIF of me getting punched in the junk.

Today, we run down the week's releases, including Batman: Arkham City, the adorable new Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, and Dungeon Defenders. Tara discussed the new "shout stuff" feature in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. After that, I discussed some of the highlights of my time playing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and I implore you to go read my full preview here.

As always, get at us on Twitter, Facebook, and the Tubes Of You. Let's do this again sometime. How's Wednesday night?
