Activision Blizzard Lawsuit Embroils California Governor!
Activision Blizzard, the publisher’s of World of Warcraft, Candy Crush, and other popular games is being sued by the State of California for employee harassment and discrimination.

Kingdom Hearts 4 Announced!
Prepare to have your mind blown by Donald Duck, Sora is back. Excitement is growing and fan theories abound. The new KH4 trailer is being analyzed over and over. Fans are saying that the realistic world look will allow the franchise to visit live action Disney properties like the MCU and Star Wars. I say? LFG.
No Man’s Sky is (almost) perfect!
Except for an uptick (ok, major uptick) in pirate raids, the new No Man’s Sky update has been pretty good. Players are now able to join up with the galaxy’s seedy underbelly and turn outlaw. And the game itself proves after 6 years that a good idea poorly executed at first, deserves a chance to be put right. Read about the series' journey to success here.
