This week saw a few new announcements for the likes in the inter-planetary No Man's Sky and Telltale announced they were working on tie-ins for both Borderlands and Game of Thrones, so they're going to very busy with four games on the go at once. Raiden has snubbed Sony as will only be turning up at Microsoft's party for MGS: Ground Zeroes. Next-gen machines are getting a few re-releaees too in the shape of Rayman and Tomb Raider.
But do we need these expensive re-releases? I delve into the matter in one of my features. Elsewhere we go through our staff picks for the Top 50 Games of the Generation. We've got lots of videos for you too in the shape of playthroughs for Doki Doki Universe and Dark Souls II. And after waiting for a small eternity, Carl finally gets his hands on the WildStar beta and has a sweet collection of videos showing off the game.
The last the big hitters of the year have arrived this week in our reviews section as we give scores to the likes of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Peggle 2 and urm Knack. There's something weird going on with Doki Doki Universe, which confuses me just looking at it, thankfully Matt managed to make more sense of it on PS4. Not forgetting our friends on the PC we have reviews for Darkout and Ring Runner.
