This Week in Gaming History

This Week in Gaming History has a little of something for everyone – book-ended by the first “Wolfenstein” game, and the latest offering from the IP, “Wolfenstein: The Old Blood” (enthusiastically recommended if you have yet to have the pleasure.) In between, you’ll find some Mario, the first Forza, and a significant entry from the “Elder Scrolls” – not to mention some portable “Castlevania.”
