Weekly Recap Oct 19th: Driveclub And Watch Dogs Delayed, Wii U Goes 1080p

Two big games have been delayed this week. Ubisoft's hotly anticipated Watch Dogs was pulled from the fall line-up this year and pushed back to a spring 2014 release. The very troubled PS4 exclusive, Driveclub, was also hit with the delay hammer. To make up for the bad news Activision announced an Amazing Spider-Man 2 game... assuming movie-based games are considered good news. Also, the Wii U kicks back into action with a massive sales boost and showcasing an affinity toward more native 1080p, 60fps games than the PS4 and Xbox One. These stories and more in this October 19th edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
