John Rambo makes a return to form and gets back in action, completely wrinkle-free for today's generation of gaming consoles thanks to Reef Entertainment. Gamers both young and old will be able to experience some one-man-army action at this year's GamesCom where Rambo will be on display. Electronic Arts continues a downward spiral as their CEO fears for his job and rumors spur preceding an investor conference call where John Riccitiello may be getting the boot. Also, gamers looking for a brand new console experience don't have to wait for the Xbox 720 or PS4 to get here, a new Android-based console called the Ouya will be unleashed soon enough for only $99 and it specs out just a little better than the current generation of consoles. These stories and more in this July 14th, 2012 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
