New releases: BioShock Infinite finally arrives

Plus Luigi's Mansion, Army of Two, more Pocket Monsters, and some golf

This week, I welcome Monday with open arms, inviting it into my living room, and even introducing it to my parents. Strictly speaking, it's really Tuesday I want to embrace, because that's when BioShock Infinite launches. But since I'll undoubtedly be staying up all night to play it the moment it unlocks, it will still be Monday in my deluded, sleep-deprived mind.

Jim's got a lot to say about the latest instalment of Irrational's franchise, almost all of it good. Will it be the nigh perfect game many of us were hoping for? We'll find out soon enough. I've already let friends and family know I'll be "indisposed" for the next few days. Yeah, I'm pretty excited.

But BioShock Infinite isn't all we've got to look forward to this week. 3DS owners can rejoice, for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon also drops this week, and Chris had a spooktacular time reviewing it. It's really starting to be difficult to not splash out on a 3DS -- damn my limited funds! Inexplicably, another Army of Two title is also coming out; Pokémon fans get another game to add to their likely gigantic collection, this time in the form of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity; and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 launches with lots of golf clubs and a philanderer. 

What are you splashing out on this week?

That moment when you look at your backlog of games...and it looks back and you and says "What the hell man? you have over 100 games on this list!". I feel guilty...

We need a Dtoid RPG that stars Mr Destructoid, Gardevoir, Macho Man Randy Savage, and MATT DAMON. The hub zone will be Nekro's dungeon.

The Witcher 3 is 30% off on GOG.com, if you thought it was a bit expensive at launch. You get store credit too.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.
