This week has been a busy one as we finally got access to both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 for the first time, and we deliver reviews for: FIFA 14 on the Xbox One, a clear improvement thanks to the Ignite engine, Dead Rising 3, a zombie-drenched, fun experience, Ryse: Son of Rome, a beautiful but shallow combat game, Need for Speed: Rivals, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and Gran Turismo 6.
The traditional Weekend Reading pieces deal with: one about the replayability inherent in the structure of Football Manager 2014 and one concerning next-gen consoles and their not-so-impressive games..
We also have a Gamer Diary that offers some more thoughts on the gameplay and style of Ryse: Son of Rome.
The EndWeekGame piece deals with how we plan to spend our free time, and we also have a selection of the news that was delivered during the previous week.
On Monday, the Fallout 4 teaser site revealed more hints about the future of the series and mentioned Vault 199, while Caesar in Gaul is the first campaign expansion coming to Total War: Rome II, set to arrive on December 12.
Tuesday, Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 had managed to sell 2.1 million units since launch, and Microsoft is advising gamers not to use the developer mode because it can brick Xbox One consoles.
