This week, we saw Valve’s in-house economist Yanis Varoufakis who was tipped to become Greece’s new Financial Minister. After working with Valve, Varoufakis may pull up his socks to take out Greece from its financial crisis. Head here for more information!

We also witnessed a controversy surrounding popular developer/publisher, Ubisoft, removing digital copies of Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed: Unity in the wake of alleged fraudulent issues. The studio advised fans to ask third-party retailers regarding the retraction of purchased game keys.

And lastly, the biggest release of this week came in the form of TechLand’s zombie-survival title, Dying Light.

The game essentially plays like TechLand’s Dead Island with a sprinkle of Mirror’s Edge parkour elements. We gave the game a solid 8, calling it “a good game that could have been exceptional if it had just received a little more polish in certain areas.”
