If we’ve learned one thing this week, it’s that U.S. trademark laws are pretty lame. I mean, I wanted to call this week’s roundup the “GamesBeat weekly saga,” but I was afraid that the Candy Crush Saga guys would come after us.

We also got a potential hint of what Nintendo’s next console might be like this week via the Fusion rumors, and we also had our first real look at the upcoming Middle-earth action game, Shadow of Mordor. You can find all that and much more in our week’s worth of coverage below.
