Which is very cool news because I played the first season of The Walking Dead on PC, the second on Xbox One, and the third of PC. And with the series now several years into its story, important choices that players have made over the years no matter the platform should carry over to the final season. Which it can via a new browser-based interactive experience.

With UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker becoming a brand ambassador for Bethesda in the region. Chalk this one up as a weird one for me because, a, I've little to no UFC knowledge outside of knowing that it's a thing, 2, adding the word brand to ambassador removes a lot of the second word's weight, and d, UFC and Fallout 76 cross-promotion could be incredible. Or ridiculous. Either way, this is good news.

And let's take a look at this for a second. This is the Forza Horizon studio. I remember thinking to myself the first time I played Forza Horizon 2 "I wish these guys made an open-world game", and subsequently I think I internally hoped it'd be an action-RPG. Which is exactly what's happening, and now they have some serious talent helping make that dream come true.

Where it finally dawned on me what the new impressive looking side-scrolling indie Planet Alpha reminds me of. Shadow Complex crossed with the visual aesthetic No Man's Sky.
