Another busy week at Castle Dealspwn this week with loads of features and reviews for you to catch up on with our weekly roundup of links. Take in the interviews for Nosgoth, 80 Days and Silence: the Whispered World 2. Jon's been getting stuck into Titanfall again thanks to the new DLC and also took the time to revisit System Shock 2 for this week's Blast from the Past and even managed to find the time to put together a tips guide for the insanely fun Sunset Overdrive.
Elsewhere, we take a look at the new SharePlay features of the PS4, examine how Shinji Mikami's brand of horror no longer rules the genre, get our first hands-on experience with The Red Solstice, go through our scariest gaming moments and much more. Looking to pick up a new game next week? Then be sure to check out our weekly guide of upcoming releases along with links to the best prices.
Sunset Overdrive is the biggest release of the week in our reviews section, but the highest score goes to the mightily impressive Dungeon of the Endless. Most games have scored well to be honest though, including, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Stealth Inc. 2, Disney Magical World and How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition. Not Freedom Wars on the Vita though, which is the stinker of the week sadly. See you all next week, unless my internet does that odd thing where it lets me play Call of Duty online, but not log onto the Dealspwn servers for work. It happens yanno, just saying.
