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, Xbox boss Don Mattrick leaves Microsoft for Zynga, Ubisoft’s uPlay service is hacked, and Irrational Games releases the first piece of downloadable content for BioShock Infinite but disappoints many players as it is not the highly anticipated story expansion.

You’ll also find reviews for The Last of Us and Company of Heroes 2, as well as a preview for Saints Row IV. And you’ll see the debut of Tanya Takahashi, the daughter of GamesBeat lead writer Dean Takahashi, and her review of Diner Dash Rush.
