news

Hey guys, welcome to this weeks news wrap-up. As per last week, gaming news has been a bit slower, even with PAX Prime happening in the US over the weekend. Nonetheless, I have combed through websites and social media to find you some interesting stories to read about. From plenty of game and DLC announcements, to the delay of Assassin’s Creed and the ACCC suing Valve (?!), I’ve got you covered. Enjoy!

From E3 awards to numerous game announcements (including the reboot of an arcade classic!) and game studio news, hopefully you can get your gaming news fill. Enjoy!

Sometimes to re-establish or make a connection with a franchise you need to find the right angle. I’ve been less than wowed by the last few iterations of Assassin’s Creed (with Revelations the best of the bunch) but stumbled upon some brilliant fan art that helped me find the love again. The fact that these tributes happen to also celebrate the female form has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Video: Dave’s 2011 picks from the Trailer Park

As 2011 draws to a close I figured I’d do something a little different with the Trailer Park. It totally has nothing to do with the lack of new video content released this week (fo’ realz). Below is a selection of videos that got me excited, made me giggle like a Japanese schoolgirl or represented a classic rawDLC moment. As you’re smashing yourself into 2012 take a look back at Dave’s hits of 2011.
