Weekly Wrap-Up: Oh, Fuse, what happened to you?

Last week the talk of the town (actually, the internet … actually, the world) was the Xbox One. We had some pretty awesome content on the site last week, but all of the attention was still mostly on Microsoft's freshly announced console.

Check out all of the latest reviews, previews, and more right here on this edition of the Weekly Wrap-Up.
