Greetings NAGoolongs, and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming. I’ve made my escape from tech and civilisation for the weekend but I’ve plugged in long enough to give you the cliffnotes for the week. Bite-sized news and videos after the jump, and be sure to tune in next week for our regularly scheduled newsing. Have a safe and happy weekend everyone.

The Witcher 3 is a pretty game, but how does it look at 8K? Pretty bloody amazing.
