Xbox One is getting a shuffle button to randomly choose a game from your backlog. One less decision to make in a life of meaningless decisions, wee!
The Xbox One is getting a “surprise me” button, which is a shuffle button by any other name. The function? As it sounds. Instead of staring blankly at your backlog trying to figure out what to play, the console will choose a title for you. Then invariably you’ll hit it again, searching for some sort of fulfillment in an increasingly concerning existence.
PlayStation Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida is stepping down. Man, Sony losing fucking everybody?
Shuhei Yoshida is stepping down from PlayStation Worldwide. And, the dude’s departure is just one of many over the last couple years. The exodus concerns me, especially since it’s coming right before the launch of the PS5. How about you?
Even if they don’t make me super horny like they used to, I’m always excited by the announcement of a new World of Warcraft expansion. Shadowlands, baby!
Oh, fuck yeah. We got ourselves some Diablo IV, people! Not just an announcement cinematic, either! A gameplay trailer too!
‘Modern Warfare’ makes $600 million in opening weekend. The best for the series this generation. ‘Modern Warfare’ is bank, dudes.
Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare reboot/remix is paying dividends. On its opening weekend the title made $600 million, which is the most for the series this generation. Me? Well, I bought the title based on the acclaim it’s single-player campaign is getting. Been a minute since I snagged a CoD, but members of the Space-Ship Omega know how much I’ve loved the series over the years. So, I’m stoked to check it out.
Here’s the launch trailer for Death Stranding, and woah is the motherfucker meaty. Eight goddamn minutes of confusing but intriguing content. I didn’t think I was going to engage this pig! However, with the delays of a few titles, and general curiosity building, I’m not sure anymore. I’ve officially wandered into “let’s see how the reviews are” territory.
PlayStation 4 is the second best selling console of all damn time. It’s sold 102.8 million systems, g’damn.
The PlayStation 4 is successful, folks. We’ve known that for a minute. But, how fucking successful is it? It’s officially the second best selling console of all time. And? It makes sense. It has an absolute fucking Murderer’s Row of exclusives.

Microsoft bringing back Xbox All Access bundles with Project Scarlett upgrade included in one. G’damn that’s gotta be tempting for some!
Microsoft is bringing back its All Access bundle. The motherfucker is essentially the same as a cell phone subsidization or whatever — you pay as little as $19.99 a month for 24-months. In return? You get a console, XBL, and Xbox Game Pass. But, wait, there’s more! If you choose to opt into the Xbox One X bundle? You’ll get a free upgrade to Project Scarlett next year.
Pretty fucking dope deal, no?
Watch Dogs 3 is also delayed! For a minute, Spring 2020 looked insane. DOOM Eternal, Final Fantasy VII Money Grab, The Last of Us Part II, and Cyberpunk 2077. Well, little by little, it’s thinning out. Feeling a bit less overwhelming.
