  • Have a whazz at this: it’s The Witcher II taking the piss at Assassin’s Creed.

  • Here’s a mod for The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2. Go nuts.
  • Crystal Dynamics has kicked open the new Tomb Raider blog. Get it here.
  • This is the biggest controller for an NES ever. Have at it.
