While the original didn’t really break a lot of new ground, it appears A2M has confirmed that they’re working on a WET 2. I guess it’ll be a “hold me off” title until Rockstar works out the kinks with Max Payne 3. In a disturbing twist of events, it appears the next Call of Duty may envelop the now ubiquitous “Space Marine” syndrome that’s been ever-so-present throughout this generation of gaming. And some near-end-of-the-week news from Polyphony Digital will make a lot of PlayStation 3 fans happy: Gran Turismo 5 should be ripe and ready for a holiday release. I guess it’s time for them to start counting the dollar signs. These stories and more in this November 13th, 2010 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
