The news headlines today are all about Chris Pranger, who was fired from Nintendo for speaking a little too frankly on a recent podcast.

With Sony absent, Xbox One looks set to rule the show at Gamescom 2015. Chella picks the top games to watch out for across the show floor. Things kick off with the Xbox conference on 4 August.

Chella delves into the Mass Effect 4 marketing survey, which allegedly reveals key details about BioWare’s next space opera. She looks at the ship, gameplay, possible characters and new alien races.
With Avengers: The Age of Ultron, the sequel to, arguably, the best Marvel movie to date, mere weeks away, I can’t help thinking there’ll be a cheap game tie-in hot on its heels. And therein lies the trouble with Marvel and games.
