At A Glance: Roundup 15th-21st April 2013We may have actually had a week without any Microsoft next-gen rumours for a change which is probably a good thing for them. Nintendo and the 3DS have won this week with a seriously impressive set of displays from the likes of a sequel to Zelda: A Link to the Past, new Donkey Kong and Yoshi titles and a new adventure from Mario and Luigi. In other news, Criterion said they're moving away from racing games, Bethesda reaffirmed support for single-player titles and FIFA 14 started to tease us with next season's tactics.

In the reviews, we finally got to play Lego City Undercover on the Wii U and Fire: Emblem Awakening on the 3DS, both of which made us even more impressed with Team Nintendo this week. It's so going to be worth buying a Wii U in a few years if they can make a few more like this. In the other reviews, Matt tries his hands at surgery, Carl takes a few early steps into Defiance and I play the hidden-object game Voodoo Chronicles, sure it's not action-packed, but I didn't have to shoot any rocks in the name of progress (hello Defiance!).

In the features department Jon played the Brave New World DLC for Civilization V and talked to the devs too. Matt showed us his surgery skills in a video and also penned a feature about why voice-over continuity is important. We have the usual selection of podcasts too talking about all the week's hottest news and releases. Finally, I throw gaming brands together whether they like it or not in my Sunday Seven feature, Most Wanted Gaming Crossovers.
