Next Unlikely Game-Based Blockbuster Of The Week
Well, after Battleship , anything is possible. Personally, we’re waiting for Michael Bay’s Hangman , in which Nicolas Cage scours the world for clues to solve a cryptic message before someone executes Jon Voight.
False Alarm Of The Week
Eagle-eyed Xbox-playing viewers may have thought interstellar war with the Covenant was imminent when the BBC flashed up the emblem of Halo 's United Nations Space Command during a recent news report. Turns out News At One host Sophie Raworth was actually talking about the current conflict in Syria, and someone backstage had confused the fictional UN Space Command with the real-life UN Security Council. Oops. Looks like the Master Chief can go back into cold storage, and that someone will be taking a little more care with Google in future.

Ad Placement Of The Week
IGN posted an incisive, well-argued piece criticising the Hitman trailer… which presumably came as a surprise to the advertiser who did the site take-over this week. IGN, we applaud you.

Apology Of The Week
For some reason Square Enix has subtitled the trailer for the new T omb Raider game “Crossroads”, which is probably supposed to evoke cool images like blues guitars and deals with the devil, but try as hard as we might, for some reason we just can’t get this out of our heads… We’re sorry. We’re so, so sorry…
