Weekly wrap-up: StarCraft 2 pwned the sh*t out of SimCity and God of War
March has been a pretty good month for gaming thus far. Not only did we get the spectacular Tomb Raider a short while ago, but this past week was also rife with some major releases. On this edition of GameZone’s weekly wrap-up, we review SimCity, God of War: Ascension, and StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. We also cover movies, previews, and much more. Check it all out here.
