Borderlands 3 Trailer Drops Out of Nowhere

Weekly News Roundup Issue #48 - Borderlands 3

Last week, Borderlands 3 was announced. It enjoyed a raucous and confident trailer strutting out into the public eye. The conference from Gearbox preceding the trailer's arrival has gained renown for all the wrong reasons. Technical issues abound and commentaries speak of intense monotony throughout.

Two Perfectly Suited Games Heading to VR

Weekly News Roundup Issue #48 - Five Nights at Freddie's

Both of which will be suited to the platform perfectly, only – we hope Five Nights at Freddie’s doesn’t give you a heart attack. 2D was harrowing enough! Have a gander at our coverage for more

Valve’s Controversial Artifact Takes a Step Back

Weekly News Roundup Issue #48 - Artifact

Valve’s card game title Artifact was spoken highly of prior to its release. However, months after the fact, the game suffered from seriously bad press. Its monetisation model seemed harsh almost to the point of parody. Players would later highlight notions of game abandonment and a lack of compassion for the Artifact community. In light of this incredibly rocky start for what was supposed to be Valve’s next big thing, they appear to have made the smart move and taken a step back. In doing this, they are set to postpone originally impending updates and “re-evaluate” the title. Take a look at our coverage for what exactly all of this means

EA Dumps A Large Part of Its Staff

Weekly News Roundup Issue #48 - EA

In the latest of high profile layoffs, our favourite publisher EA, has seen fit to lay off 350 of its marketing staff. KeenGamer has coverage on EA's baffling decision that will apparently improve the company.
