Posted 3 November
Hey everyone, and happy weekend!
The leaves are falling from the trees and the nights are drawing in – which means it’s a great time to stay indoors and tackle the heap of rather wonderful new titles around right now.
This week alone has seen the gorgeous Okami HD brushing up to the PlayStation Store, new assassins Connor and Aveline eagle diving through Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, as well as Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted screeching onto both PS3 and PS Vita. We’ve got info on all of these and much more in this week’s recap. Enjoy!
On a separate note, apologies for the lack of a Weekend Debate yesterday. I’ve been away from my desk for the past few days and was unable to make the necessary arrangements in time. Rest assured normal service will resume next week!
