Monday has once again snuck up on us like an unfortunate rash you got from a really good weekend. Don't worry, there's cream for that! And much like a soothing medicinal balm, the new releases of the week are here to cure what ails you.
Brütal Legend finally drops on PC after years of being locked in console servitude, and despite its dodgy strategy portions, we should welcome it with open, heavily tattooed arms. The absolutely cracking soundtrack makes it more than worth a look, and the great voice acting, more than competent action, and art direction that will make your eyes bleed from heavy metal joy makes its failings a lot easier to swallow.
If metal hurts your delicate ears and Jack Black sends you into a blind rage, then there's still a bunch to look forward to this week. Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires adds some strategy to your hacking and slashing; fans of punishing dungeon crawlers and 3DS owners rejoice, Etrian Odyssey IV finally arrives in the US; Might & Magic Heroes VI gets a new expansion, Shades of Darkness; a curious looking RPG drops on PC in the form of Driftmoon; and Star Wars Pinball is a thing that actually looks pretty groovy.
What will you be using to soothe that nasty rash this week?
