The action epic we've all been waiting for is here... 007 Legends! Just kidding, Assassin's Creed III is headlining this week at retail.
The game is at a hype peak, with a lot of weight resting on its shoulders to round off the Creed series for this generation, and is hitting on Wednesday 31st October on PS3 and 360 for ANZ$89.95 or NZD$99.95.
It's little brother Assassin's Creed III: Liberation is also out this week, sporting an all-new protagonist, Aveline, and telling the events leading up to those in the console counterpart. It'll be out on the same day as a Vita exclusive, going for AUD$69.95 or NZD$79.95.
And 007: Legends is going toe to toe, dropping on the same day as well, but faring poorly in the critical acclaim world, hitting PS3 and 360 for AUD$69.95.
Then, worth a mention is Football Manager 2013, which has its own soccer strategy niche well carved out, and is hitting PC on Friday 2nd November for AUD$79.95 or NZD$99.95.
