Goodness me, it's Sunday again! How on earth has that happened so quickly? Perhaps it's the shortening days or the slightly icier weather, but at least it means it's time for the Hot Five.

It's been a mixed bag-kind of week this week. There's been some brilliant new releases, some exciting updates, and interesting sales. However, it's all about the news, kids. What've been your favourite five posts from the past seven days?

Final Fantasy XV's bite-sized

Yeah, I know it's not news that FFXV's coming in a pocket-sized, chibi edition, but something peculiar happened this week. A trailer was released showing off the game followed by the video getting pulled and pre-registration for Android opening up. What that means in term of release date, I couldn't tell you, but I have a sneaky suspicion we won't have to wait for long to find out.

South Park goes mobile

After finding out that the game would be launching November 9th, it felt like the time flew by before it finally landed on Thursday morning on iOS and Android. Aside from no-doubt rude and slightly line-crossing remarks, there's a decent-looking CCG buried beneath that could prove to be a fun addition for your gaming library. So long as they handle the F2P stuff properly, that is.

Paladins Strike gets previewed

It's nice to see a preview every now and again, and this one looks like a bit of a mashup... but the good sort. Though we weren't sure initially, Jon's hands-on with the game proved to be mostly positive overall and, as he points out, we'll have to keep an eye out for its full release.

Alas it's another week over and done with and another week closer to Christmas - did anyone else just shudder? We're bound to have some exciting stuff to talk about on PG over the coming days, so do stay tuned.

Between L.A. Noire and Rocket League for you Switch lovers, and Lineage 2, Shadow Fight 3, and more, it's looking good.

Until next Sunday, folks.
