The biggest news of the week isn't necessarily the most interesting or intriguing news of the week. While Epic Games may have delayed the crap out of Gears of War 3, pushing the game back to a fall release, other noteworthy games such as World of Darkness, Vindictus and Lucius took the spotlight this week. That’s not to mention that Nintendo released a ton of new info on a bunch of upcoming autostereoscopic games for the Nintendo 3DS, including titles such as Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid. A brief showdown article between Call of Duty: Black Ops and the highly anticipated reboot of Medal of Honor also rounds out this week’s noteworthy news. These stories and more in this October 2nd, 2010 edition of the Game Blend Weekly Recap.
