Every Monday we'll pick out the best of the bunch, link to our reviews and previews and keep you in the video game loop so you have enough time to pre-order for Friday's post. Time to smash open your piggy bank so you can spend its coin-shaped guts.

Worth a look

It's a week of big releases, but once again we can't tell you what we think until Tuesday. The fight for next week's chart No. 1 is set to be between Metal Gear Rising Revengeance and Crysis 3, both coming from well-established franchises. If you're after visuals then Crysis 3 is the way to go, especially on PC where it looks pretty spiffing. Revengeance is the tougher game of the two, but coming from Platinum Games that's to be expected.

Less hyped, but perhaps the best of the three games, is Persona 4 Golden for PS Vita. Sony's handheld is in need of games, and this is one of the best JRPGs around.
