Today

Is Fortnite ruining our children? Yes but for a completely different reason this time!

Stories

  • 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.

Coming Up

As a reward for sitting through the depressing state of video game news this week, please enjoy 100 minutes of Detective Pikachu dancing.
