At A Glance: Roundup 26th August - 1st September 2013

A quiet week in the news this week as the industry recovers from the grueling events of Germany's Gamescom. Nintendo did find time to unveil the 2DS, a 2D version of the 3DS. It looks like a waterproof Fisher Price tablet, but it could work for some. Elsewhere, Microsoft finally converted their store to real money like the rest of the grown up world. Bethesda's push for them to allow non-gold members to play The Elder Scrolls Online may be too much of an ask though. Just want to enjoy some footage? Well there's a lot of cool trailers too for the likes of GTA V, Kingdom Hearts HD and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Now only if we had the time and cash to play them all.

The big names have finally started to turn up in our reviews section. We have the verdicts on The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, which needed a serious touch of Don Draper's creativity in the final third. It's a good thing then that Rayman Legends arrived at the office with ludicrous amount of colour, creativity and downright awesomness. Suda 51's latest sticky-offering, Killer is Dead, rubbed itself allover Jon to lower the tone once again. My Splinter Cell: Blacklist review is coming early next week, fingers crossed there won't be any stealthy gigolo missions.

Our extensive Gamescom coverage continues in the features too. There are lots of video interviews for games like the mighty Titanfall, The Longest Journey, Star Citizen, NBA 2K13 and Guild Wars 2. We have a few Opening Scenes videos too, giving you a look at how The Bureau and Rayman Legends begin along with a couple of Game Buzz podcasts discussing the hottest topics of the week. Game of the month makes a return too and there's a chance to win a copy of August's top title. Enjoy the links after the break, I'll see you next week.
