As time has passed, the internet has slowly learned more about Free Radical's cancelled Battlefront 3 project. The idea was to expand upon Battlefront 2's grand battles, allowing a seamless transition from space dogfighting to ground combat.

Free Radical's efforts were eventually canned though, after a change in LucasArts leadership. But while it doesn't feature a full space to ground transition, the final mission of DICE's Battlefront echoes some of the spirit of the cancelled project.

OK, look. I'm not the first person to say this, and I certainly won't be the last. But iOS 11 is bad. The new operating system has turned my phone into a bug-infested carcass of its former self, and the frustration of trying to use it sometimes makes me want to die, too.

In the middle of talking to me about his upcoming documentary on The Simpsons, comic Hari Kondabolu described watching the show with his brother. It was a Treehouse of Horror episode, a Halloween-themed series of vignettes that The Simpsons does every year.

In this episode, parodying The Most Dangerous Game, Mr. Burns hunts humans and says, "I smell fear ... and curry." Of course, he then shoots Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, the Indian convenience store owner from the show.

Acting as a superhero in a major blockbuster film is undoubtedly incredibly stressful, but it's also, and this is not to be ignored, frickin' rad. Getting to pretend to be a larger-than-life hero with (most likely) a cape is a dream come true for a lot of people.

Naturally, one might want souvenirs of the experience when it was over.

Do you too enjoy sitting back and watching your friends do bad karaoke without the benefit of a friendly reverb or autotune in your house? Congratulations! Singstar is back this week, although this time you don't need to own a crappy microphone; you can just use use your broken smartphone.

And for those who prefer playing anything else, it's a bit of a low-key week. It's mostly dominated by Sony's PlayLink games, with Hidden Agenda and indie titles.
