Oddly.

After recent lay-offs, financial woes, and even run ins with the law, troubled publisher and studio Starbreeze is confident that its cash-flow problems are on the mend - based on publishing agreements and a planned Payday 3 release in 2022-2023.

We reported this week about a controversial response by Blizzard towards the winner of a recent Hearthstone esports event, suspending Ng Wai ‘blitzchung’ Chung and stripping him of his prize money after he shouted support for the protests and protesters currently engaged in action in Hong Kong. Backlash for the move went, for lack of a better term "viral", and today Blizzard's president J. Allen Brack has responded to the publisher-developer's actions.

Developed by Cyanide (Call of Cthulhu) and published by BigBen (The Sinking City), Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is a mouthful to say, in much the same way the game's main character, Cahal -- a werewolf, has a mouthful of teeth.

Which is a big stage for a couple of small teams based in Sydney, but we're definitely keen to see what they have up their sleeve. And based on the teaser trailer (after the jump), we can see why LA Comic-Con was their platform of choice.

That headline only ever comes by once in a century, by my reckoning. Then again, those names only exist once in a lifetime of note anyway, so...

*Ahem*

With the license changeover and Visual Concepts' handling of both Yukes and the WWE, WWE 2K has gone from strength to strength, year on year. With the upcoming WWE 2K20, nothing has changed on that front, but what is a massive change, however, is what's going on in a fully revamped MyCareer mode.

Who voiced support for protestors in Hong Kong, with Ng Wai ‘Blitzchung’ Chung stating “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age!” at a recent Hearthstone esports event.

The Game Drive for Xbox from Seagate, with storage capacity of 2TB, is something that has become a mainstay in our setup. The only downside being that with so many games installed, there are so many game updates. Too many.
