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

Tuesday sees the long-awaited StarCraft II expansion, Heart of the Swarm, arrive on PC, an event which is likely to cause internet forums to clog up with angry messages about broken servers. Still, if this isn't an excellent game we'll be mightily surprised. If you've read our God of War: Ascension review you'll know that the game perhaps isn't as strong as some of the previous games in the series, but it's still a looker and has some great moments. Multiplayer is also pretty good, and is a first for the series.

And the rest...

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 sits down here as we're far from convinced the sequel will better the original - which wasn't a good game. We'd be happy to be proven wrong, but as things stand we'd advise buying with caution.
