It's nearly Gamescom time folks! Jon and Carl are jetting off early next week to bring you a horde of previews and interviews from the hottest upcoming games. And probably a refreshed addiction to schnitzel. In the news we've seen new teasers for as yet unannounced games, Assassin's Creed: Rogue was leaked/announced and some older games like Resident Evil and Sleeping Dogs are getting a new-gen reboot. 2K announced that Evolve will be delayed into 2015, which given the state of the game I played recently, is certainly a good thing.
Highlights of the reviews section this week include a HD remake of Abe's Oddysee, entitled Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty and the latest Titanfall DLC, Frontier's Edge. Less than impressed verdicts were handed out for Eidolon, Sacred 3 and Lego Ninjago Nindroids.
Features this week include videos for Expendabros, Eidolon, the Landmark beta, Tango Fiesta, Mind: Path to Falamus and Road Not Taken. In the face of all the recent delays, we also ask if 'next-gen' itself has been delayed into 2015. We know you like lists, so be sure to check out Five Reasons You Need The Last of Us: Remastered in Your Life, 10 games that made Matt cry, Jon's collection of the best upcoming niche Japanese titles, 5 Essential Tips About New-Gen Releases and we're bringing back the Sunday Seven series with Why Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Deserves Your Attention.
