Destiny 2 came to Steam over two weeks ago, and while that’s broadly been a good thing for PC loot shooter fans, it hasn’t been without issue.

(Insert spooky ghost noises here.) Ashe’s new Halloween Terror skin looks cool, but players are very unhappy about how it changes her ADS, and Blizzard is on the case.
After a lot of middling years, Capcom has made a big comeback thanks to the quality of games like Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5, and the Resident Evil 2 remake. That quality has translated to sales, too, and Capcom plans to capitalise on that kind of success by continuing to bring back series that we haven’t seen in a while.
A little under a year ago, Obsidian Entertainment was acquired by Microsoft. A month after that, the studio announced The Outer Worlds, a sci-fi, space exploration RPG that’s become one of the most anticipated games of 2019. Only a couple of weeks from launch, Obsidian has talked about how beneficial the Microsoft buy-out has been, and the freedom it still has as a company.
