Yesterday was pretty special, wasn't it? After so many years, Gears of War 3 brought an end to the most iconic franchise on Xbox 360. You'd be a fool to be playing, or doing anything else right now. So you might be wondering, why is this update being written? Because we're super cool people and want to get this over and done with as quickly as possible, we're not quite finished with the Locust yet.

Criterion's favourite racer makes its long awaited return this week in the form of Burnout: Crash for a tidy sum of 800 MSP (AU$13). It's not what the fans wanted to see... actually, it's not what anyone wanted to see. Scrapping the glorious carnage of Paradise City for a stripped back, casual points based game isn't an ideal situation. But maybe it's better than nothing, maybe.
Alternatively, you can pick up a game called Rotastic, also for 800 MSP (AU$13). It's another one of those stylish, potentially very addictive, two dimensional platform/puzzler types of things. Either download the trial to see for yourself or join the cool club and play nothing but Gears of War 3 all week, the choice is yours.
