At A Glance: Roundup 7th-14th April 2013

We've been waiting for the new Batman game to be finally announced since greedily gobbling up Arkham City, but somehow there's an air of apprehension since Warner announced Batman: Arkham Origins. The concept sounds solid, but the piss-awful lazy title and development being taken from Rocksteady has raised a few eyebrows. Naturally, we've had another week of Microsoft saying absolutely nothing next-gen related while more damaging rumours run wild. It'd be funny if it was so sad.

A small selection of reviews were available this week, but with nothing scoring more than a 6. Evoland has the most interesting concept though as it goes through various retro styles as the game progresses. It could have been much better, but the idea is a solid one, make sure to check out Matt's review.

Ubisoft made our week though by finally unveiling Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Jon even got his hands on it for a preview. We also have a hands-on report and interview for the newly announced Flashback remake and we sat down for a chat with the developers of Payday 2. In the wake of all our old gaming haunts going through the administration grinder I took a look at what lies ahead for high street retail in the build up to the next generation of consoles and ask if they can survive in Games at Retail: Adapt or Die. Be sure to take a look at our fond look-back Day of the Tentacle feature, which has inspired me to raid the cupboard and dust off the original - then surely get furious as the PC refuses to play it.
