A Week in Gaming: 30/04/2012 – 04/05/2012
Hello and welcome to your weekly dose of everything GodisaGeek! A Week in Gaming cherry picks the best of GodisaGeek’s reviews, news, previews, and much more, and puts them all into one handy place – here!
Let’s get this party started shall we?
We begin proceedings with a selection of some videogame reviews from the GodisaGeek team. Of course, the reviews listed below are not all the reviews from this week. If you want more simply head on over to the Review Section, where you’ll find plenty more to keep you going.
Sniper Elite V2
First up this week we have a game that has definitely had its fair share of controversy. With a pre-order bonus that allows you to kill Hitler, and review scores ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, Adam takes a look at Sniper Elite V2.
You can find the full review by clicking here. Martin also recorded some footage from the PC demo which you can see below.
Tarak took a look at Lionhead’s Fable Heroes this week and found it to be “…impossible to recommend picking this game up (at 800 MS Points) but if you’re a die-hard fan of the Fable series then at least you know what you’re getting yourself into”.
The full review is available here.
The Walking Dead: Episode One – A New Day
Robin is next up, with his review of the stellar Telltale Games effort, The Walking Dead. Episode One – A New Day – is available now and Robin thought it was rather good. Check out his review here.
This week’s Mobile Monday is a return to an all Martin affair.
In the spotlight this week he takes a look at Toy Factory, StreetBike HD, Lock ‘n’ Load and Shaun The Sheep: Fleece Lightning.
You can find all those reviews, plus links to the App Store, in this week’s Mobile Monday.

THE GODISAGEEK PODCAST NETWORK
It just wouldn’t be a normal week on GodisaGeek without some form of audio goodness, so it’s a good thing we have a triple amount of fun from this week’s podcasts.
Firstly, we have Season 4 Episode 17 of the Godcast. This episode sees the gang joined by a celebrity guest!
Next up is Saint & Greensie, with their episode titled “He couldn’t even do it to face to face”. This episode is part 3 of their platform games discussion and sees the duo talking about more modern, downloadable titles.
And last, but by no means least, is Ding! which reached level 17 today. This week the guys chat about plenty of MMORPG news with plenty of TERA discussion too.
That’s all for this edition of A Week in Gaming. I’ll be back next Friday, so until then live long and prosper!
