New Releases this week 17/12/10

Well we're a week from Christmas and there are now very little new releases to be seen on the shelves, in fact there is only one proper release. Now is the time for you to pick up the games that you've been buying all year but completely discarded in favour of the newest game out, still here's our pick of the releases this week.

Patapon 3

Patapon 3 sees the return of the innovative rhythm-based 2D action game on the PSP, with multiplayer campaigns players can quest together co-operatively or battle head-to-head with 4v4 against other Patapon clans supporting network play of up to eight players. Patapon 3 also introduces a new character; Super Hero Patapon who you can customise for your own unique Patapon. Patapon is one of the only real good series' on the PSP besides Monster Hunter, and its good to see that they are still releasing them in the UK.

If you don't have a PSP, or don't appreciate the addictive fun that is Patapon, you'll be sorely disappointed this week if you intended on buying a new game. However fear not, a slew of DLC is released next week, not to mention the new Dead Space 2 demo. We're still playing games from a few weeks ago. So are you going to buy anything this week?
