The Week That Was… (ending 16/10/11)

Reviews for Batman and Ace Combat accompany a big week for news.
The past week has been more interesting than most for news, not least thanks to info on Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer modes, new attacks on Sony’s PSN and some interesting comments from developers.
DICE spoke out about the fact that many (us included) have likened Battlefield 3’s campaign to something we’d expect from a Call of Duty – the developer promising that they haven’t strayed from their own ideas. You can read our thoughts on that here: Battlefield 3: Set-pieces and atmosphere.
Dark Souls developer From Software were also nice enough to talk exclusively to IncGamers, check out our chat in full here.
