The super-fast gaming news weekend catch-up video: Gears of War 3 Chicken Gun?

It's time for your semi-regular Monday catch-up video, giving you all the news stories you need to know about from the weekend's happenings - and all in handy 60-second chunks. However, today our regular filming room was in use, so we had to settle for a comfy leather sofa instead. Sounds great in theory, but we probably won't be using that again in any particular hurry. Anyway, today's topics include: Gears of War 3's Chicken Gun, the same game's triumph over multi-format F1 2011 in the UK charts, new details on the Mass Effect movie and very bad news for casual game company Zynga.

    Oh no, Zynga's dying. What a shame. Gears 3 definitely deserves #1, because it's F1-ing awesome. CWOTIDIDTHER? This Mass Effect movie is starting to intrigue me more, but not in a good way. And I SERIOUSLY hope John Travolta won't be in it.

    great weekend catch-up, really excited for the mass effect movie, daft punk did a good job on tron so hopefully they'll fit in well with ME. Only concern is if it doesn't follow the games stroyline, I hope they dont make something that goes against the established universe. I lied, I have another concern that most video game movies so far have been crap, but fingers crossed mass effect can buck that trend!

    I can see why Gears beat F1. People did'nt rush out to buy the new F1 because it really doesn't look that different, to the average Joe Spazwhacker, as last years game. Plus spending forty quid on a game that in 5 races time will be out of date. Im personally waiting for F1 2012. Have in-game SKY adverts been confirmed for next years game Justin?
