Our weekly round-up of the top news, previews, reviews and features.
    The wealth of news at the start of the week dried up somewhat towards the end but, nonetheless, a few gems made their way into our headlines over the past seven days. Not least of which was the cancellation of Sqaure Enix’s promising looking Gun Loco, the never ending court battle between Activision and EA and the delay of Motorstorm Apocalypse. 
    This week also saw the small matter of some awards being handed out at something called the videogame BAFTAs.
    The week’s top news stories as follows:

    New LA Noire screens show the ‘High Life’

    See how good we treat you? To counteract the comparitively slow week of news we did our best to keep you occupied with a host of features. We kicked off our ‘An Evening With’ features by spending time with Killzone 3’s multiplayer and the recently released Defiant Map Pack for Halo: Reach.
    We also chat with the men responsible for Gears of War 3 and Homefront as well as correct the wrong decisions made at the videogame BAFTA awards.

    Aside from the largely disappointing Homefront, it was all about RPGs in the reviews section this week with Torchlight coming out as the pick of the bunch.

    It’s always a good week when Gears of War is involved, which is why we were so excited to get our grubby little hands on the upcoming beta. If you prefer moustaches over chainsaw-gun weilding mad men then you’ll find comfort in our early look at Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword.

    And, last but not least, our ‘Toilet Game of the Week’ … Okamiden.
