In this edition of Weekend Recap, Capcom takes over the world, Commander Shepard calls it quits, and part of 2K Czech’s staff is swimming with the fishes.

Epic’s Gears of War 3 will get at least four downloadable expansions after it’s released later this month. Together, the DLC would cost around $45, but you can buy a “Season Pass” and get it all for $30. The bundle includes a liquid metal weapon set.
