Next week is a busy one for new releases. We'll see the launch of LEGO Batman 2, Civilization V's expansion Gods & Kings, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, our annual Magic: The Gathering, and Portal co-creator Kim Swift's new puzzler Quantum Conundrum.

Speaking of Portals, Gateways seems to be an eye-injuringly interesting attempt at a 2D portal 'em up with some tricky tricks up its sleeve. Also, do have a look at Roller Coaster Rampage, almost certainly the world's first "competitive rollercoaster simulator with destructive environments."

Though it hits PC next week, Quantum Conundrum isn't due on 360 and PS3 until later this summer.

Here's our list of next week's new releases:

PC

Xbox 360

PlayStation 3

Wii

Vita

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo DS

      I sank so much time playing Magic: The Gathering 2012 edition, great bargain at $10 and brought back memories of playing the actual cards back in middle school.

      But 2013 edition will have to wait until I get tired of Diablo 3.

        I just got back in to playing the actual card game.

        Planechase is awesome, but I wish they'd add in an EDH mode. I guess it would be rather hard without adding a huge database of older cards though.

      Looking forward to MTG's iPad release next week. That's the perfect platform for some quick games.
