There's always pressure with weekly recaps to convince the readers that this was the BEST WEEK EVER. Like, you can't believe what happened, guys! But honestly, you can believe what happened. Some video game companies announced some video game stuff. You'll probably care about some of it.

Next week will be an even bigger one for video game news thanks to gamescom 2015. Still, there were plenty of nice surprises this week including the return of a classic open-world series and a bevy of free games. Here's the run-down:

Quote Of The Week
"Did you know that last year I was working at Dollar General? I worked as a cashier. I had three bosses who were all still in high school. Before that I worked at Target in the backroom freezer, unloading frozen foods. I haven’t had a successful life; and now that God has blessed me with some success, I’m doing my best to be responsible with that success. I don’t party on weekends, I don’t get drunk or sip martinis. I spend my evenings playing Megaman 3, buster only, with my kids. And I try to do good with what's been given to me." - Five Nights at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon, in a letter to his critics.
