If you follow VentureBeat but don’t regularly check our GamesBeat site, here’s a list of the best video game stories we ran over the last seven days that you may have missed.

This week, Microsoft revealed more specifics about the Xbox One’s used game and sharing policies — triggering predictable Internet outrage in the process; Andrew Scott Reisse, the cofounder of the Oculus Rift, was killed at a crosswalk during a high-speed police chase; and Konami revealed that actor Kiefer Sutherland (24) is the new voice (and motion-capped) face of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

You’ll also find reviews for Remember Me, The Last of Us, Animal Crossing: New Leaf,  The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, and Dust 514, as well as previews for Murdered: Soul Suspect, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Disney Fantasia, and Halo: Spartan Assault.
