GameStop closing a bunch of stores.

200, out of their 3,800: “Plans to close stores were outlined Tuesday, shortly after GameStop reported a second-quarter net loss of $415 million, and a 14.3 % year-over-year sales decline. ” …And that’s how these downward spirals can start. Gabe from Penny Arcade kind of called it, too:

The CONTROL Honest Game Trailer.

Gotta admit: I’m seriously considering CONTROL now. I mean, it looks like one of the good ones. The really good ones.

But sixty bucks is sixty bucks. Maybe with the Christmas money.

Khajiit takes skooma, FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

I don’t know why I think this is funny. Well, actually, I do know why. I just don’t know why I think that any of you will think this is funny, but it’s my site and it’s Labor Day so I’m chilling out.

The rapidly-infinitely [recursing*] JUMANJI gameplay trailer.

So. JUMANJI is a video game based on a movie franchise that was supposedly based on an imaginary video game, but was actually a reboot of a previous movie that was instead supposedly based on an imaginary board game, but it was instead based on a children’s book that featured an imaginary board game. I’m not gonna lie; that’s an impressive pedigree. Not to mention a market saturation that seems almost sapient in its ability to flow into every possible niche of the entertainment consumer industry.

So will the game suck? Damned if I know.

Some Outer Worlds gameplay.

OUTER WORLDS looks interesting, although I’m curious as to why all the stealth. But then, I always do. It’s odd: I happily stealth my way through games, but I get annoyed when they make me do it too often.

Will have to think about this one, though: it’s only available via Epic on PC right now, and that’s a pain in the butt every time I try to use it.

Anybody playing Control?

Because CONTROL‘s gameplay looks like it’s off the hook. That bit with the end with the film projector? That ain’t real easy to do, and that really ain’t easy to do that smoothly. I am now Officially Intrigued.

I laughed at the reaction to Fortnite’s new B.R.U.T.E. Was that wrong?

Should I not have done that?

Epic is showing no signs of plans to remove the controversial mech-like B.R.U.T.E. from Fortnite, saying the powerful new combat option helps in the studio’s mission “to bring players of all skill levels together to have a fun experience where anyone can win.”

The launch of the B.R.U.T.E. earlier this month has been one of the biggest changes in the game’s short history, letting two players team up in an armored automaton to hurl a barrage of missiles at relatively tiny, mech-less opponents. Angry players have been flooding online forums and social media with clips showing overpowered mechs destroying other players, claiming the addition is ruining the competitive balance of the game.
