Things That Happened The Week Of 08/02/2015

So the Xbox Convention happened this week and- Wait… It’s called Gamescom? Awwwwkward.

So Gamescom happened this week and since Sony opted not to show up it was basically Microsoft’s show to lose. Thankfully they showed up guns blazing and threw out all the games we kinda wished we saw at E3 but had to wait until this week to see. Scalebound, Quantum Break and Crackdown 3 all impressed and Microsoft is getting the absolute most they can so far out of backwards compatibility.

Besides Gamescom we got the Deadpool trailer, rumors of a Spider-Man villain and we can finally find out what exactly happened after Return of the Jedi ended. All that and more below:
