UK Chart: Black Ops II knocked off top spot

Far Cry 3 topples Call of Duty

On its fifth week since launch, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 enjoys a first stint at number one in the UK chart compiled by Chart Track, replacing Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which drops to number 3 after hogging the top slot for six consecutive weeks.

Overall there’s not much movement, with not a single new entry in the entire top 40 and the highest re-entry being Bethesda’s Doom 3: BFG Edition which charts at number 30. Also notable is the continued chart absence of Wii U exclusive titles like New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, and ZombiU.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
