Daily Gaming News – 24/11/12

November 24, 2012

Saturday is upon us once again, and that means that it’s time to sit back, relax and play a good game or two. What’s that? You’ve finished Halo 4 since last weekend? Well, not to worry. If you’re into puzzle games, then I hear that this new Professor Layton game is worth a look. Don’t have a 3DS? That’s ok. Now’s a good time to get into the Deponia series anyway, especially considering that the first game is now selling for only $10 as part of Steam’s Autumn Sale. It’s also a good time to read today’s gaming news, so go ahead:
