You can tell it's a quiet week when a piece of DLC headlines, but hey, it's December! Destiny fans can help themselves' to the game's first batch of new content since release, and every else should be tucking into their backlogs as we gear up for the holidays. What have you been playing? Tell us in Tuesday Game Room!

What have you been playing this week?

I finally hit Level 100 in World of Warcraft, which means it's time to... well, actually shirk all responsibility in terms of starting to learn dungeons (and start Khadgar's legendary questline) and muck about in my garrison doing apexis and stable quests. I can't help it! Now that my Garrison's level 3 I've been having too much fun messing with that rather than actually getting myself sorted for dungeons and Raiding. I mean, I did do the silver proving grounds so I could do heroic dungeons, but still... those follower missions. Must. Do. More.

I guess I'll play The Dark Below tonight. I mean, I did buy the season pass, so I might as well get something out of it... will this be the thing to break me out of my Destiny disappointment? Probably not, but I might as well give it a whirl.

New Releases!

As stated above, the banner release of the week is Destiny: The Dark Below, the game's first 'expansion' pack adding a handful of new quests, strikes and gear, and a new raid. It's available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The week in general is pretty much digital only. Twin stick shooter Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on PS4, Xbox One and PC, the PS3 version of Game of Thrones: Iron From Ice, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Director's Cut on Xbox One and PS4, JUJU on PS3, Tennis in your Face on PS4, and the PSOne Classic version of Suikoden II announced at PSX hits the Vita and PS3. Dig into those back catalogues, people, we're pretty much done for 2014!
