Are there any games we’ve missed? Let us know in the comments below.
Anna: It’s a quiet month for me: I would have liked to have given the PC version of the new Assassin’s Creed game a go, but depending on how patient I am I might buy a PS3 copy. I’m slightly worried about a pirate-themed Creed game (so many potential cliches to draw upon) but I’m definitely willing to give it a chance.
Mitch: The latest Pokemon game has finally come upon us! As if it wasn’t evident by my podcast all about the series, I’m most excited for this new addition to the Gotta Catch ‘Em All crew! I’m similarly interested in seeing how the new Assassin’s Creed performs.
