Best stories of the week

It was a terrific week now that I think about it! There’s a rumbling in the sand that Prince of Persia may finally be ready for something, DC Fandome is getting bigger because all the comic book artists are just fine ignore the guys with guns and Microsoft is finally ready to murder Internet Explorer. I mean retire it, gracefully.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has a new release date, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will be focused on telling good stories in every episode and Apex Legends just keeps on improving. Lastly, Ghost of Tsushima is adding a multiplayer mode for free. How unexpected.

Worst stories of the week

And here’s the flipped side of that good news coin. Local business were hit bad this week, with Momentum suffering from a massive cyber-attack that culminated in over 24 million personal details being grabbed. Vampire Bloodlines 2’s lead writer Brian Mitsoda has been kicked out of the project, America is hellbent on destroying Huawei and Deathloop has been delayed.

The worst news this week, was the revelation that someone in our local streaming industry is a rapist, and they’re still out there. Time to clean house, I reckon.

Finally, I can kill Aquaman. In WTF entertainment news, Netflix wants a Game of Thrones version of popular children’s cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender and then there’s Robert De Niro’s latest effort which makes me wonder just how much money he currently owes the mob.
