This past week was quite easily the biggest of the year for us, for news (Res Evil 6, anyone!?) and for what we’ve provided you. Tuesday saw the return of our podcast, in which we spoke about Hitman: Absolution, Dishonored, Diablo 3 and the problem with remakes and more – look for new episodes every Tuesday.
It was previews that dominated our article coverage, with pre-release looks at King Arthur II, Binary Domain, Heroes of Ruin and Hitman: Absolution. Tucked in with those, however, is a review of tasty indie PC game Dustforce and a wish-list of Thief 4 inclusions.
The biggest single news story of the week was a difficult one to call, with the announcement of Resident Evil 6, the continued slow-death of SOPA and the continuing decline of PS Vita sales in Japan vying for the spotlight.
Anyway, we’ll let you make your own mind up about what’s most important to you.
The weekly round-up of the top stories as follows:
