Weekly News Roundup: Week 35

The weekend is a magical time…

It’s the time when I actually have the time to write down the major gaming news for the week! Check it out:

Destiny 2 leaked info

In an exciting turn of events, Gamestop accidentally put a version of the Destiny 2 guide up on their website, allowing gamers to read through the guide and find the names and photos of a lot of content that’s going to be in this game.

I’m not going to put all the info here in case some of you don’t want to know yet, but there is a website that has all the names of the story missions, every location on each world, every piece of exotic armor and every exotic weapon, everything.

So check out the site if you want to get a sneak peek of what’s to come in a few days.

The House cancels net neutrality meeting

On September 7th, there was supposed to be a meeting between the government and several businesses to discuss what there is to do about net neutrality, the issue on everyone’s mind. That meeting has now been canceled because many of the businesses (like Apple, AT&T, Comcast, Facebook, etc.). It seems like nobody wants to sit down and set stable ground rules, and without their input, the rules put in place back in 2015 might be erased, causing what will probably be a regression in the way we deal with internet access.

Nobody knows what’s going to happen next, but I don’t know if they need to go anywhere. If it ain’t broke, why are you trying to fix it?

Nintendo lost the lawsuit

I never thought that this would happen, but pieces of s**t happen to pop up once in a while.

For those who don’t know, there’s a company called iLife that filed a lawsuit against Nintendo for what they said was a patent infringement. Apparently, they thought that the technology that was put into the Wii and Wii U mirrored the technology they developed for body detection, movement detection, all that. They ordered that Nintendo pay out $150 million.

Of course, that’s pretty ridiculous, so Nintendo only ended up paying out $10 million, still a lot of money, but it could have been a lot worse. Nintendo is planning on repealing the decision, so we’ll see how that goes down in the coming weeks.

Sea of Thieves caters to the less fortunate

If you’re anything like me, you’ve had the dreadful experience of playing a game on a s****y laptop that can barely run Microsoft Word for more than the update sequence, so you’ve gotta lower those graphics settings real low, and in some cases you won’t be able to play a game at all due to the high graphical load it puts on your machine.

Well, Sea of Thieves is one game that you needn’t worry about, because it’s going to have an option that lets you play the game at 540p with a frame-lock at 15 fps. Rare has said that they’re trying to let even the slowest machines to play this game, and that’s something that I can admire, having previously had only one really bad laptop to play all my games on.

It’s smart marketing, really.


That’s all the major gaming news for the week!
