Another entire week has passed in the realm of Rock, Paper, Shotgun. We’ve rocked, papered, and shot guns for the entire 168 hours, and in the quiet times we’ve also found time to write some stuff about games. You’ve probably missed the best bits, so why not peruse this handy countdown of cleverness and clarity that we call, “the weekly omnibus”.
