There's not exactly a whole lot to write home about this week, with each region around the world getting a minimum of two new games to choose from, including the release of the third Call of Juarez in western territories, as The Cartel launches, transporting the series into the modern day with automatic weaponry, swears and drugs.

Meanwhile, Australia gets to experience the simple joys of EDF: Insect Armageddon, North America gets Captain America: Super Soldier and Europe gets to check out Cars 2, which involves being a spy, but as a car, or something to that effect.

Finally, Japan gets FEAR 3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior and Alice: Madness Returns, a good few weeks after they've launched pretty much everywhere else, as well as a couple of new games and a platinum re-issue of FFXIII. And that about wraps it up for this week. Check out what's on offer:

Asia (via

  • Alice: Madness Returns
  • FEAR 3
  • Sniper: Ghost Warrior
  • Chou Jigen Game: Neptune (CH Selection)
  • No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition
  • Final Fantasy XIII (Ultimate Hits)

Still pretty pissed that the first Resistance doesn't have trophies... :-(

@1; Indeed,I don`t get why Insomniac still hasn`t fixed that, especially with this rerelease.

Didn`t know there was an Uncharted double pack as well. Interesting, considering I haven`t played those games, but then again, the genre isn`t for me. Perhaps a price drop will help.

And Cars 2 looks really mediocre. The first game, which me younger brother loved on the PS2, had quite a few things going for it, but this one looks rather bland. It doesn`t help that the movie is Pixar`s worst outing since The Incredibles (IMHO). It`s not bad by any means, but not what Pixar is capable of.

Can't wait for Cars 2. Well the film more than the game, but the first is definitely my favourite Pixar film.

Insomniac have always said they'll never do a trophy patch for R1 as it would be too costly and time-consuming to do so.


Tools of Destruction doesn't but the other one in the pack does (I can't remember what it's called)

Anyone else think the Call of Juarez cover art looks a bit familiar? Heh.

Yep indeed, reminds me of a mix of RDR and GTA cover art. They even put a chopper in the upper left corner.
