Rayman Origins is out this week for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii and it's my main highlight over everything this week. Yes, Saints Row: The Third, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and Super Mario 3D Land all deserve attention, and that's exactly why Rayman is my standout. There are some huge games Rayman is going up against and the last thing I want to see is this beautiful game get buried under the pile. (Hamza Aziz)

Ezio, Ezio, wherefore art thou Ezio? After the sprawling adventures of the young Italian in Assassin's Creed II and the slightly less grand adventure chasing the Borgias in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, we can finally say goodbye to the now grizzled and milked-for-all-his-worth Renaissance-era Adonis.
