Bungie is dropping its existing partnership with Activision in order to self-publish Destiny. The developer says the transition is “already underway in its early stages, with Bungie and Activision both committed to making sure the handoff is as seamless as possible.” Bungie’s immediate plans for Destiny 2 updates remain unchanged, and the game will remain on Battle.net.
Atlus is best known for RPGs like the Shin Megami Tensei series and its popular Persona spin-off. For years, the company has focused on console and handheld development, but that changed today with the launch of sexy puzzle-platformer Catherine on PC, and now fans are left to wonder if the company’s more famous titles may follow.
The CES 2019 has been pretty fruitful so far, with a lot of technological demonstrations and new trailers released showcasing the new graphical components studios use to impress their playerbase. One of the more interesting announcements was Xbox boss Phil Spencer taking center-stage alongside Dr. Lisa Su during AMD’s opening keynote and revealing their partnership for “future platforms.” Of course, considering AMD’s new 3rd Generation Ryzen processors and Radeon VII graphics card announcements, this is a very good sign for what Microsoft’s future platforms can have in terms of raw and graphical power.
Bethesda promised a major update is coming to Fallout 76 early this year, and teased it will contain “over 150 fixes.” The patch notes are finally out, and the studio delivered its promise.

One such service says the current terms would definitely prohibit the tools currently in use by many games.
Inspired by what I’m about to share with you, I just Googled “best videogame soundtracks”. I was aghast to discover that of the top three results, not one included the original Command & Conquer, or indeed any game from the C&C franchise (although one did recognise Doom 2016, and a hat-tip to GamesRadar for recognising that Final Fantasy VIII is low-key the best FF soundtrack).
You can build some ridiculous rides in RollerCoaster Tycoon, including many that show callous disregard for the health and safety of your patrons. But a project called 12 Years of Suffering inflicts over 30 million days of roller coaster ‘fun’ on parkgoers, which translates to over 12 real-world years on the tracks.
