Our first full week back at the helm threw up a number of interesting little tidbits for us all to get stuck into. In terms of news, the first reveal of screenshots generated far more questions than they answered, while the UKIE provided us with some interesting trivia knowledge by releasing a list of the UK’s best-selling games of 2011 (shock: was top).
In terms of ‘proper’ features, the review season has still yet to kick in which meant and were our ‘headline’ critiques this week. Tim and Peter, respectively, took charge of their dissection – both coming away with a feeling of mediocrity.
Expect a lot more review action come end of Januaury and throughout February. To make up for that delay we’ve provided an interview with game director, who explains the how and why of the changes to Agent 47’s latest outing, as well as a sounding off by Peter about which settings/envronment he’d like to see used a future game.
Everything you need to know about the week of 9-15 January 2012 is below. Enjoy!
