Big Releases- ASSEMBLE!!!
It's the blog's penultimate week before our brief three-week hiatus, so it's only fitting that we've got a few massive releases to start sending us hurtling towards a brief rest period before we return for E3, the bulk of the Summer Of Film, so many world exclusives and so much more...trust me, though, there are still great things to come before May 1st!
AT THE MOVIES- Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, Ewan McGregor's compelling new comedy-romance, is out at cinemas now, so why not give that a try? Other than that, you could still catch Battleship, The Cabin In The Woods, Lockout, Mirror Mirror or The Pirates on the big screen, or of course this week's biggest entertainment release by far...
GAME ON- Other than this week's other big games release, there's a 'Classics'/'Platinum Hits' version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and that's about it...good times, eh?
SWITCH ON THE TELLY- House faces a dilemma involving religion and hallucinations as the finale nears closer in House: Body & Soul, while the New Directions pay tribute to Whitney Houston in Glee: Dance With Somebody and the live shows begin in The Voice UK.
ON THE SHELVES- Check out an intriguing documentary based around World War Two with Winston Churchill & The Battle Of Britain, a worthwhile 4-disc DVD set.

PROTOTYPE 2- Another interesting new video game to try out. Prototype 2 is the sequel to the flawed but fun 2008 original, sure to allow for some real blood-filled fun in the streets of New York as you face off against an all manner of deadly foes. I'll review this exhilarating sequel after the hiatus...
FIRST CRYSIS 3 FOOTAGE- CryTek and EA are about to give us our first look at one of the most exciting games of 2013. Will Crysis 3 be the best-looking console game of this generation? Find out in the first gameplay tomorrow.
ON THE BLOG- As well as rating Avengers Assemble, Derek, Doctor Who Revisitations 3 and Glee: Dance With Somebody, I'll be recommending the Top 5 movies, games and books you should catch over the course of the hiatus, plus bringing you full coverage on the week's biggest news reveals.
