Ahh, Humpday: you came and went with nary a bother but with a whole load of screens and videos. Come inside to marvel at the pretty images, some of them move as though alive. Spooky.
So, today we had some nice pieces back from gamescom with a feature on Carbine’s new MMO, Wildstar, and an interview with Sony software boss, Shuhei Yoshida on all things PlayStation.
Starting the day off was the AU News Wrap and to end it later on, Steph will have her US News Wrap, which just leaves the small matter of the EU version to squeeze in between. Behold!

Personally, I’d have liked the first game in there as well. Y’know, to round out the ‘collection’ bit of it

Silent Hill has always prided itself on being a bit odd, but this is just, well, odd
