The week in gaming

Let’s take a second to breath, as the gaming year’s biggest period has slapped us around with some of the biggest releases, such as Black Ops 2, Hitman: Absolution and Epic Mickey 2, to name a few, and the news has been just as exciting.

We managed to check out 6 of the most controversial games ever made, 5 shameless rip-offs, some of gaming’s best explosions and a bunch of other features.

We also got some insight into Hitman from the mind of a stripper, as well as a hacker who tried to extort a game developer.
