After spending the week recovering from another packed EGX Eurogamer Expo, I'm back with your weekly roundup of everything that's been happening around Dealspwn.com. We've been tearing up the tarmac with all the hottest racers coming to consoles and PC in the coming months and have hands-on reports for the likes of Project Cars, F1 2014 and Driveclub. More hands-on previews include Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2, Might & Magic: Heroes VII, The Evil Within and we have our usual roundup of next week's releases complete with links to the best pre-order deals and our past coverage.
Video content this week includes lots of fresh material for the hottest games like Alien: Isolation, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Fenix Rage and Quake Live. Want to play something right now? Then check out Mr Spilbox on our Click to Play feature or if you're planning a trip to Sauron's doorstep, be sure to check out my Sunday Seven tips guide for Shadow of Mordor. You want more? Well, you better enter out WildStar competition then.
Our review section kicks off with a review of the premier of From Bedrooms to Billions, the documentary on the birth of the UK gaming industry, which has some interesting anecdotes, but has some criminal editing. Talking of crime, Matt's got a review of the new Sherlock Holmes title, Crimes and Punishments. Be sure to check out our other verdicts on Endless Legend, Natural Doctrine and *deep breath* Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.
