    So Ubisoft offered me a £200 tablet at a Watch Dogs preview event

    I went to see Watch Dogs in Paris recently. I can't tell you anything about that yet for embargo reasons, but thanks to the Force of Revelation that is PCGamesN's Steve Hogarty, I can tell you about the "asset stick" I was handed before we boarded the train to the venue. It's an Asus Google Nexus 7 tablet - leading man Aiden Pearce's "favourite" tablet, supposedly - which now sells for about £200 brand new. Also in the accompanying Watch Dogs-branded napsack: a bottle of mineral water, a leather tablet case and a box of Smints. I'll admit to keeping and eating the Smints. OK, I've drunk the water too. I'm only human, you monsters.

    Where are all the ambitious Kinect games?

    If God's a gamer, I'm not going to heaven. After all, I'm a firm, if occasional, fan of games that rely exclusively on the Kinect sensor, and Kinect is clearly a device assembled by Dark Powers to lure the Righteous from the Way of Ironsights. Developers have taken several stabs at the notion of pure gesture control, most of which haven't really panned out, and some of which have proven utterly dreadful. Here's why I don't think Kinect-only gaming is a busted flush, and to hell with any bickering about the resilience of your elbow tendons.

    Ground Zeroes: Kojima's cheap shock tactics spoil a great game

    To speed-run Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes isn't just to miss out on the best it has to offer - it's to put the worst it has to offer under a spotlight. Thanks in no small part to a set of Side Ops missions that impose different engagement criteria, objectives and obstacles on the same environment, Ground Zeroes is a delicately tooled and responsive sandbox, unfolding under the hand like a Swiss Army knife.

    Still playing: Forza 5 - why Turn 10's flawed racer won't let me go

    If game characters were like the toys in Toy Story, I'd be feeling bloody guilty right about now. I'd have Jago, Messi, Marius and a Zoo Tycoon panda all looking at me with puppy-dog eyes, begging me to play with them. "I can't help it," I'd regretfully explain. "I'm trapped. I need to do Prague for the 19th time."
