Here we go again with our guide to all of the games hitting your favourite retailers in the next week. Whether you live in the Bahamas or Birmingham, we've got you covered.

This week, Starbreeze's comeback arrives in NA and Europe, in the form of a rebooted Syndicate. All future-tech wizardry and industrial espionage, the FPS is looking very promising. Indeed, it would have this week’s shooty sci-fi category all sewn up if it wasn’t for Binary Domain. Toshihiro Nagoshi attempt to grab the Western masses may not look particularly exciting, but it’s got a few cool ideas beneath that dull exterior. European gamers can grab it this week.

Elsewhere, a couple of Japanese oddities make it out into the world. NeverDead finally reaches Australia and Asura’s Wrath arrives in the US this week. Between limbs as weapons and globe-sized boss battles, that’s plenty of mental to go around.

As for Asia itself, they too get Asura's Wrath, as well as The Darkness II and a million squillion other games including the exciting sounding Gal*Gun and Tacchi, Shiyo! Love Application. Under Defeat HD is out too. What’s Under Defeat? De floor!

all of Australia's releases get over-shadowed the The Vita Launch. I'm cool with that :)

Over in the EU, it's Syndicate and the release of PS Vita for me. In other words, the best week of the year so far for gaming.

Nothing for me till Mass Effect 3. I'll get both Asura's Wrath & Syndicate when they hit below thirty used. I have no hype for either title i don't even see reviews no high then 8.0 for both.

Only Gal*Gun for me, probably won't arrive until the week after so it gives me time to finish Catherine.

Gal*Gun, Touch Shot Love Application, Shinken de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! R, Little Busters!, and hopefully Idolm@ster G4U! Vol. 5. Then next week I have more games to look forward to like Phantom Breaker and Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 coming to America with a nice limited edition that's already pre-ordered.

Oh and by the way, Minato Station is not a game. It's the publisher and developer for Shinken de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! R from what I understand.

@18 What's wrong with Reality Fighters? Weird name? Or have you played it and found that it's rubbish?
