Is Fortnite ruining our children? Yes but for a completely different reason this time!
- Tencent has pulled PUBG in China and replaced it with the not-at-all-identical Game for Peace.
- Blizzcon 2019 requires all attendees to use a third party app to enter the event. To use the app, you need to grant it the right to:
- Prevent your device from sleeping
- Have access to your contacts
- Your approximate and exact location
- Full network access
- pair with Bluetooth devices
- At the Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal, Randy Pitchford said there would be "no microtransactions", only to be corrected by Game Informer. He then went off at them on Twitter.
- Fortnite skins have become a way to bully other players both in and out of game.
As a reward for sitting through the depressing state of video game news this week, please enjoy 100 minutes of Detective Pikachu dancing.
