The Yakuza series has cracked 14M sales

Sega has released its annual integrated report for 2020, including the lifetime sales of its game series, and the Yakuza series has cracked 14 million copies sold across all titles. Compared to its series total sales stats of 11 million total copies from 2018, the year that Yakuza 6 released in the west, and 12 million in 2019. This means that over 20% of Yakuza's lifetime sales have come from the last two years, entirely out of proportion to the series' 15-year lifetime, though not out of proportion to the number of games released. It's a big turnaround for a series that was widely considered to be declining in popularity relative to the growth of the industry.

As our reviewer Lauren Morton said, "If Dragon Age is a veteran gone on sabbatical, GreedFall is keeping its seat warm without making a mess of the office in its absence."

How you move your mouse can indicate whether or not you you take risks

Researchers in psychology have found that how people move their mouse may well be an indication of their penchant for risk-taking: Given the choice between a risky and non-risky option, those who take risks move towards the risky option at first... even if they end up choosing the safe bet. Likewise, those who have a lower risk tolerance tended to move their mouse towards a safe choice, even if they ended up picking the gamble.
