Editor’s Note: This week, the 2013 list of new releases will be updated, it’s a task and one that we’ve been a bit relaxed on launching, but by Friday a pretty good synopsis of what we know about will be out. It’s been a quiet January in terms of shipped releases, more so than the past two years, but it’s only a matter of time.
