Rockstar may have stolen the headlines, but there's far more news out there than that, check inside for a selection:

First off a big thanks to everyone who responded to our giveaways in yesterday's round up. The winner is Delagon who says:

"Firstly GLaDOS, to help "inspire" the other acts, then Wheatley to be the loin tamer, Ezio for acrobatics, the guide from terraria for bait and of course, the space core just 'cause."

We hope you meant 'lion tamer' there Delagon, but the idea of using the guide for bait was just too good to resist. PM Tom Hatfield with your name and address for a your prize.
