Battlefield 4 draws first blood in EA's annual shooter stare-down with Call of Duty. It didn't pick a great time to go first as it must fight with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for attention on Tuesday. Rasslin' fans, your WWE sim title arrives under new management.

With Watch Dogs and Driveclub gone, my PS4 preorder might be riding on Ass Flag reviews this week. I'm excited for Killzone, but if AC is underwhelming I'm not going to buy a console that I'll only get one retail game for.
