New releases: Slicing and dicing in Metal Gear Rising

Shooting in Crysis 3, strategizing in March of the Eagles, and more

I'm aching all over after enjoying the weekend just a wee bit too much, so I don't really feel ready for another Monday. Not having the ability to stop time, I'm just going to have to power through. At least there are plenty of games to help me forget the fact that I feel like death warmed up.

Two big releases are looking set to dominate this week: the obnoxiously named Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Crysis 3, which I guess also has a silly, if more mundane, title. I'm not particularly excited about either of them, but as a chap who favors swords over guns, I'm far more likely to indulge in Raiden's cyborg adventures than any nanosuit shenanigans.

Also dropping this week is Paradox's war-focused Napoleonic romp, March of the Eagles; PC puzzler, The Bridge; crazy platforming, exploring, and turn-based strategy in A Valley Without Wind 2; things for your old PSP; and a bunch of DLC.

What are you splashing out on this week?
