My thoughts exactly. Although, also, even though I never touched a battle royale game, I could tell Overwatch was just objectively leaps and bounds better than Battleborn.

The genre is 'Hero Shooter', but yeah Overwatch had way more polish (being that the assets were already made for an abandoned project). After they saw the reception and attention OW's reveal got they should have delayed it. Like a year.

There was another hero shooter around the same time too that fell victim to the same fate. Had interesting traversal mechanics and was very vertically designed to accommodate that. Trying to remember the name now.

For those interested in buying a Nintendo Switch at Gamestop for Black Friday sales, avoid the Mario Kart bundle due to it containing the older Switch model and not the newer one with the better battery life.

* Apparently the $5 clearance sale for Steam Controllers during Steam's Autumn Sale last week ended up being a huge success for Valve. Only problem was Valve forgot how many of those controllers they actually had in stock and took way too many orders for it and now can no longer guarantee people who bought one will actually get it.

* According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the on-going gender discrimination class action lawsuit against Riot Games was recently settled for $10 million and set the record for largest payout in California law history for this type of case. Prior to the settlement, Riot Games had been accused of committing gender discrimination and fostering a very toxic workplace environment. Riot's management also attempted to force their employees to waive their rights to file a lawsuit against the company via a Forced Arbitration court filing.

* Based on an accidental leak from Sony's Japanese PSN store, Capcom is currently working on a Resident Evil 3 Remake. The artwork leaked featured redesigns for Jill Valentine, Carlos Oliveira, and Nemesis.

And then bafflingly, after that massive flop, Boss Key thought it would be a good idea to get into the already oversaturated BR genre and brought out Radical Heights and promptly went out of business about a month after it released.

It was released in beta state, way too early. Apex had no issue introducing itself in the BR market. Fact is, you can't ask people to trust things will get fixed with so many games out now. RH had decent ideas, but we weren't gonna wait for them to work.

Sub-genre, I'd say. Sometimes I say genre as short hand.

There's enough going on in BR for it to be its own sub-genre. I say this as a former naysayer who was not impressed by the concept for years until I dived in.

Ghost of Tsushima news has been silent since that debut back at E3 2018. Just a news bit or an update on that Sony State of Play coming up would be nice.

2K Games announced they have recently formed a new studio called Cloud Chamber and their first project will be a new game in the Bioshock series.

According to a report from Kotaku, 2K Games has spent the past 5 years working on plans for this new game although its current development started in 2017.

Nothing will ever come of Certain Affinity's time with BioShock because 2K took the project in-house in 2017 and rebooted the whole effort. That's when 2K originally formed what's now Cloud Chamber. Back then, it was a mysterious small team next to Mafia III developer Hangar 13, and the rumbling was that it was working on something BioShock-related. Hangar 13 employees competed with one another to switch teams -- both because BioShock is one of 2K's biggest properties, and because Hangar 13 didn't have a great sense of job security; it underwent an aggressive round of layoffs in February 2018.

For those of you who are game renters or might be looking for a bargain for the holidays, Redbox will be phasing out video games from their kiosks before the year is over. Doing strictly movies.

Games still available at kiosks will be available to purchase at a reduced price.
