This Week’s Big News…

Other than the Scotland vote this week’s big news has to be the reason Luke took the day off, no he’s not performing an acoustic set of his upcoming album, he’s picking up his iPhone 6. (I could make a joke about taking the day off to pick up a phone but I did just have the whole of a week off to shoot moon wizards in a game…).

So if like him you too are picking up a shiny new iPhone today we’ve got a great collection of mobile titles ready and waiting for you.


Formula 1

We can’t wait for this weekend’s race at Singapore and to witness another chapter in what has been an incredible and incident-packed championship. It’s certainly been a vintage year for F1 so far. So to get you in the mood for this weekend’s night race, we’ve got a new F1 2014 hot lap video and, of course, it’s set at the Marina Bay circuit, home of the Singapore Grand Prix. Enjoy the video, and enjoy the race this weekend!

Ok… this looks like fun.

Screenshot of the Week

So I was skimming through the Steam Community Hub looking for a good GRID Autosport Touring Car Pack screenshot and stopped on this one. Then I noticed it was taken by our very own Ben, credit where credit’s due though – nice shot.


Competition Time

Before we get off for the weekend we’ll have a bit of competition. We’ve got a PC Gamer’s dream bundle containing a Razer Mouse mat, a new shiny Tiapan and a set of Carcharias headphones. We’ll even throw in a copy of GRID Autosport along with the season pass to the first name out of the hat. Two runners up will also receive a copy of Autosport on PC with the season pass too!

To enter, simply RT the below tweet. The contest closes Friday 26th at 12pm UK time with the winners announced in next week’s update.

And that is your lot! Have an awesome weekend, thanks for coming and we’ll see you next week.
