This week brings us another huge game in Batman: Arkham City. Personally, I am going to leave this one on the shelf a few more weeks -- I know, I know, it is dying to be played -- but I am still fuckin' around with Gears of War 3, and if I get behind in Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, I'm going to be waaaaay behind the learning curve. And then it's just not fun because I'm getting maimed every single damn level and my K/D spread is like .49 or something and no one wants me to be on their team and I hate it.

So, basically I just learned that my entire gaming experience is dictated by my kill/death spread in major AAA titles. That's pretty sad. Anyway, there's about a bajillionty games coming out this week, and obviously Batman: Arkham City is the big dick in the orgy. Payday: The Heist is that smaller, interesting looking one in the corner. Click the link -- I've got all of them detailed for you.
