In particular, interior environments appear to be nicely fleshed out, and all buildings will be explorable rather than tantalising us with unyielding fake doors.

SimCity Disaster Screenshots

Building a successful metropolis in SimCity isn't going to be easy. Not only will you have to contend with power concerns, zoning and infrastructure management, but you'll also need to respond to the very real threat of massive earthquakes, tornadoes and alien abductions.

Just one of many reasons why Maxis' upcoming city sandbox is fast becoming our most anticipated games of 2013. Behold our latest SimCity hands-on preview for more details, and check out the disastrous new screens after the break.

UK Games Charts | 13th October 2012

FIFA 13 still reigns supreme this week, fending off some stiff challenges from the terrifically impressive Dishonored and XCOM:Enemy Unknown, the former of which set the bar for the biggest new IP launch of 2012. A 78% drop in sales see Resident Evil 6 fall to fourth, with Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 sandwiching Capcom's divisive action-horror return in third and fifth respectively. MCV reports that even if the numbers for the two Pokemon titles were combined, they still wouldn't have dislodged Dishonored.

It was a disappointing debut for Fable: The Journey, though, but being a Kinect-only game that makes you feel like your arm might fall off, that was perhaps to be expected. You can read the chronicles of Jon's physical torture at the hands of Lionhead's latest in his review here.

At A Glance: Weekly Roundup 7th October - 14th October 2012

Free DLC for Resi and Tekken made us smile this week as did the return of Chris Roberts and his new game, Squadron 42. Less fun was Rayman getting delayed, essentially removing the best game from the Wii U's launch lineup. Our reviews include XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Fable: The Journey and what could be game of the year, Dishonored. Features include survival guides for XCOM and Dishonored. Matt also gets extensive hands-on sessions with Far Cry 3 and the Wii U.

Game Buzz | Episode 4: Spaaace

We tried to talk about some other news this week, but really Chris Roberts' return was the only thing dominating our minds. If you haven't watched the trailer for Squadron 42, do it now! Frankly, even if you haven't, watch it again! We chat about our love of space sims, discuss the extensive opportunities presented by Star Citizen's ambitious concept, and dream of freelancing across the stars.

Elsewhere, we try and assess whether or not Gordon Freeman really is "creepy as hell", we briefly look at the Windows 8 Store's restrictive 18+ rating policy, and Jon's arm falls off.
