A Gamer’s Week: February 24

Delivering reviews, columns, news and PlayStation 4 info

By on February 24th, 2013 10:41 GMT

When it comes to reviews, we have three to deliver this week: The Bridge, a puzzle game that also has plenty of style, Impire, a game that takes a piece of the Dungeon Keeper formula and adds some interesting twists, and March of the Eagles, a battle-focused grand-strategy title.

We also have a Quick Look for Death Inc., an interesting little indie game that’s currently seeking funding via Kickstarter.

Our familiar Gamer Diaries are continuing the countdown of the most interesting big games of the coming ten months and we also talk about March of the Eagles.

As always, we also have assembled two Weekend Reading pieces: one dealing with the mistakes of the PS3 and another one about the promise of the PlayStation 4.

We also have an EndWeekGame article dealing with our free time for the weekend and a selection of the most important news from the past seven days.

On Monday, Bungie's Destiny project finally received a complete reveal, with information about the universe and the gameplay, while CD Projekt RED talked about what The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt could learn from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

On Tuesday, Treyarch leaked information about the new DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, called Orientation, apparently, and Naughty Dog talked about how it would make the move to next-generation hardware.

On Wednesday, a round-up of rumors about the PlayStation 4 appeared ahead of the supposed official announcement and an analyst said that lack of a Wii U version of GTA V showed lack of trust in the platform.

On Thursday, Sony revealed the PlayStation 4, with the highlights so far including the lack of backwards compatibility and some pretty interesting hardware specs.

On Friday, a report explained that the reveal of the Xbox 720 from Microsoft would arrive during April and Jonathan Blow compared the Durango and the newly revealed Sony platform.

On Saturday, Call of Duty got a new PC update, complete with extra content and Sony explained that prices for the PlayStation 4 would go from free to the median for current consoles.
