Games out this week: Wii U, 'New Super Mario Bros. U', 'Far Cry 3'

By
This week is an exciting one, since we can experience the next generation of home consoles with the arrival of the Wii U in the UK. For those not interested in Nintendo's new system, then there's always the excellent open-world shooter Far Cry 3.

Far Cry 3

Release date: November 30 (Europe), December 4 (North America)
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, PC

Far Cry 3 sees the return of Ubisoft's shooter series, shifting the action from the African plains of the second game back to the lush tropical island setting of the early titles. Players are thrust into another seemingly hopeless situation in which they must survive warring pirates, wild animals and sheer madness to get their one-way ticket out of paradise.
