The Week That Was… (ending 06/11/11)
Unsurprisingly, it was Grand Theft Auto V that garnered the most attention this week. As soon as the trailer hit on Tuesday, the internet was awash with detailed breakdowns and predictions based on the limited content shown in less than two minutes of video. You’ll find a link to our thoughts on such things below, along with the trailer itself.
It was never going to be possible to match last week’s Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 reviews in terms of hype and expectation. Still, we managed to provide the critical touch with write ups for PixelJUnk SideScroller, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken and CitiesXL 2012.
There are a bunch more featured articles to browse below, but we suggest you check out our picks for the best games to play while drunk… everyone likes to let their haird down once in a while.
