TouchArcade Rating:

Well another pretty big week of new releases, and with iTunes shutting down for the holidays in a couple of weeks I expect it to get even crazier. As always the full list of new releases that are on our radar are listed below, along with videos/screens and forum links so you can find out which games tickle your fancy. Sadly, it doesn’t appear that GTA: San Andreas is coming tonight, as Rockstar has stated on Twitter it will be coming later in the month. But don’t despair, there’s plenty of stuff here to keep you busy until then.
