  4. This week in gaming; upgraded PS4 rumored to be revealed next month, Patrick Klepek leaves Kotaku to join Vice, Civilization VI developers stream the game, reactionaries outraged at game criticism cause more people to rethink writing about games, Nintendo Power archive released on the internet and is removed by Nintendo, fan remake of Metroid 2 arrives in time to celebrate Metroid's anniversary and to almost immediately receive a take down notice from Nintendo, Rami Ismail talks about day one patches, Final Fantasy XV gets a season pass, first look at the new Battletech game by HarebrainedSchemes, Sonic's lack of identity and how he wasn't designed to be timeless, new Gears of War trailer reveals new faction, and more. Gaming News Farewell, Kotaku Nice to see Austin is getting some good people with him.

Watch ten minutes of Rare’s Sea of Thieves in motion Battlefield 1 Gameplay Series: Weapons Latest Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer introduces the Captains Dishonored 2 had a QuakeCon demo, here's what was in it The Demons of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse "Augs Lives Matter" banner in new Deus Ex concept art draws criticism Given the art director doesn't seem to or is pretending to not even understanding how art works based on his responses to the above tweet, former employees were on reddit saying anyone who critiques the game is stupid, the game director has said they remain as neutral as possible to the worlds politics and factions (which makes their marketing really odd as Deus Ex usually would morally grey questions about transhumanism, control, killing, etc not if apartheid/racism stand in is maybe a good thing), and their marketer/brand director is saying this to a Bioware employee asking him about it they are making me doubt that they have the ability to create a meaningful story. I've actually never seen so many people from an AAA studio respond so childishly to people questioning marketing choices as I have with this game, the game better review well, I'd hate to see how they react to people taking any issue with the finished product (probably something like the Suicide Squad actors saying that people who don't like the film aren't real people). Augs Lives Matter (Jim Sterling's Article) Other thoughts were given from multiple Bioware, Microsoft, Fallout/Far Cry developers, Paizo, and people who have written for Gamespot, IGN, Vice, Polygon, Giant Bomb, etc talking about marketing, poorly co-opting real world messages when you don't have confidence to create your own setting. Most who talked about it got/are getting outraged, troll, or racist responses. Always weird to see people who clearly don't care about video games spend so much on gaming sites or harassing critics and developers for large corporations, if the developers can't intelligently stand behind their own work no reason for random people giving them money to have a tantrum over it. Sad to see, I was looking forward to more intelligent commentary, but if you aren't being paid well it isn't healthy for most people to deal with gaming communities and reactionaries so it's understandable.

They're also going to have a Movie this year and have already released the first episode of their new Anime All of this has to do with the game.
