New releases: Skulls of the Shogun will slay you

Plus Dungeonland, Antichamber, and new 3DS games

Monday has once again arrived, so you know the drill: it's another week of new releases. We're leaving January behind in a somewhat subdued fashion, but there's certain to be something that will catch your eye.

Skulls of the Shogun has caught my eye this week, though lamentably it's only dropping on platforms I have no access to. Maybe it's time for me to upgrade to Windows 8? Nah, probably not. Regardless, it looks like a fun strategy romp for those who like to chuckle while commanding undead minions.

Other than that, there's co-op shenanigans in the form of the medieval theme park scrapfest, Dungeonland; the IGE award-winning Antichamber drops on PC; Omerta: City of Gangsters opens its doors to prospective mobsters; you can shoot people in the face and make things go "boom!" in Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear; the 3DS gets some love thanks to Bloody Vampire and Witch's Cat; play the most hardcore sport of them all in Let's Fish! Hooked On; and more platforms get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. This and a whole lot more magically appears this week.

Anything floating your boat?

SMT demons, huh? There's really only one choice.
Malthor avatarMalthor
One of my favourite demons from SMT is Samael, his death magic and Megido spell are always a great help( Megido especially made him the bane of golden hands in my last P4 playthrough). Plus he looks pretty badass.

Favorite demon in Shin Megami Tensei, eh? Oh, I got many but so I'll just pick one for now whom is a beast in the Persona series. Yoshitsune--Hassou Tobi, Heat Riser = Don't fear the REAPER!

Played half an hour of Last Story. Yay, British voices! But the absence of colours makes me want to play other games instead, especially in this greyscale season.
