So, it’s yet another frigid weekend up here in Northern Europe. Southern Hemisphere/Mediterranean readers, we are mighty jealous! Still, all this unseasonal snow and ice is the perfect excuse to hunker down and catch up on some gaming, and I hope you’re all enjoying whatever it is you’re playing right now.
Should you fancy taking a break, we’ve got plenty of catch-up reading right here on the Blog. My highlights this week: news of insane indie platformer Stealth Bastard migrating to PS3 and PS Vita, a release date and new trailer for brilliant Japan Studio platformer Puppeteer and a look at a raft of enhancements coming soon to God of War: Ascension. See below for the full reading list.
