Recently in my weekly roundup, I've tried whittling the news stories down to the ten hottest stories of the week. With E3 drawing closer though, it's closer to twenty today! We've had new reveals for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Evil Within DLC, Lego Portal, Ark: Survival Evolved, a spiritual sequel to Castlevania and more. There have been more Fallout 4 rumours, Metal Gear toys with squeezable boobs (oh, Japan), Sony/MS E3 news, The Division delayed and more.
Our feature articles include previews for Rocket League, Attack on Titan, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III, Selfie: Sisters of the Amniotic Lens and Wulverblade. With Capcom announcing their intent to do more HD remasters, I go through the most wanted titles on our list of candidates. After the official reveal of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate I put together a couple of articles, one on why the game already looks better than Unity and another on the important questions we still have about the game. Jon took the time to explain the multiple preorders available for the game, but asks if it really deserves your preorder cash already? Elsewhere, Jon tells us why Lego Dimensions is the toys-to-life title to beat this Christmas, suggests which free games should come on Windows 10 instead of Candy Crush and finally, a piece on the importance of Metacritic in today's world.
A busy week then, but somehow, Jon found the time to review Project Cars , Code Name: STEAM and Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed. I'll join in with the reviews again next week. I'm currently reviewing a chair. Yep, a chair. Enjoy the links below, and we'll do it all again next week!
