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, Ubisoft delays two of its next-gen launch games (Watch Dogs and The Crew) perilously close to the new console launch dates, mobile games are on the rise as developer Supercell gets a $3.5 billion valuation, and Zynga might still be in trouble after a cofounder splits.

You’ll also find reviews for Skylanders: Swap Force and Sonic Lost World.
