A Gamer’s Week: November 11
Delivering news, reviews, Quick Looks, columns and Diaries
The review department of the Games section for Softpedia was pretty busy this week and worked on: Medal of Honor: Warfighter, the military first-person shooter from Danger Close and Electronic Arts, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the open-world racing title from Criterion and, again, Electronic Arts, and the clear star that is Halo 4, the space-based first-person shooter from developer 343 Industries and publisher Microsoft.When it comes to Quick Looks, we also have one for the aforementioned Halo 4, which shows how we felt after we played through the opening sequences of the game, and one for Angry Birds: Star Wars.
There are also Gamer Diaries to read: one for Assassin’s Creed 3, which tackles questions about the nature of the Templars and the Assassin’s, and one linked to Their Finest Hour, the expansion for World War II grand strategy title Hearts of Iron III.
We also deliver the usual Weekend Reading pieces: one about the feeling of constant surprise I associate with FIFA 13 and another about GTA V.
As always, we also have the EndWeekGame piece and a selection of the news of the past week.
