Curb your enthusiasm – you can count this week’s new releases using both of your thumbs.

Air Conflicts – Secret Wars (out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC) is compatible with 3D TVs and has online play for up to eight other aviators. There’s a bit more information on the publisher’s site if you’re curious but it’s probably best to wait for reviews to appear before taking the plunge.

Then we have Hidden Mysteries: Vampire Secrets on DS, which is the 758th hidden object game to be released on the system this year. These things must be incredibly cheap and simple to create. A few static backgrounds with some sprites scattered around, a bit of simple code running behind the scenes and voila – one new game to shove out. The DS deserves better, frankly.

Next week: Captain America: Super Soldier, Earth Defence Force: Insect Armageddon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Dream Trigger 3D and Just Dance 2 – Extra Songs.

    Hidden Mysteries games are probably even easier than that as they probably just scale down the graphics from the pc versions anyway.
    Never underestimate the bored housewife/casual market.
    License to print money.

    People aren’t allowed to make Tetris clones anymore without buying the license. Just imagine how many of those there would be if that wasn’t the case.
