With surprisingly positive reviews all over the place, this week belongs to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. That's right, Super Smash Bros. 3DS, get in line.

This week is packed! Not only do the underdog and the sure thing face off, we've got a new Forza, an updated Persona fighting game, Sherlock "Mother-Fornicating" Holmes and the return of children screaming over Skylanders at Toys'R'Us while I'm trying to buy — okay, Skylanders.

Starting to get dizzy. If I make it through to November it'll be a miracle.
