It looks like it's going to be a slightly quiet week for new releases, with only two titles really on my radar. Personally, I'm a bit relieved, as I have a ton of catching up to do.
First up, we've long Aliens: Colonial Marines bursting out of chests and onto hard drives everywhere. We've not had a decent Alien game in a while other than the superb Aliens: Infestation for the DS, but I'm not really sure that Colonial Marines is going to change that. Still, I'm always happy to slaughter xenomorphs, and hopefully it will be even more fun with a pal.
Other than that, we've got Cyanide Studio's Impire, which, from what I've played of it, is a rather wonderful strategy title in the vein of Dungeon Keeper; Brain Age game drops on the 3DS, testing the mental abilities of the gullible; Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken comes to the Vita; The Plan hits Mac and PC; and a bunch of games spread to new platforms like very welcome viruses.
