What a week, how sad. Lots of mind-shaking news took place this week, starting with Atari filing for bankruptcy in order to “separate” from the company into individual entities, and then this was followed by THQ completely biting the dust and having their assets auctioned off like prime veal at a meat market, sadly though Vigil Games didn't get an owner (as of the publishing of this article). And as if gaming journalism doesn't have enough problems, it turns out someone made up fake information to see if they could get it spread across the major gaming news sites and...it worked. Gaming journalism fails again. These stories and more, in this January 26th, 2013 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
