Gaming Forum NeoGAF Offline Following Sexual Assault Allegations Against Site Owner

NeoGAF is perhaps the most popular gaming forum in the US and in several countries abroad. Players and game developers alike view and post in its many threads, and it's where many people go to see what's going on in the world of gaming. Following allegations of its current owner, Tyler "Evilore" Malka, the site has gone offline.

The allegations first surfaced on Facebook, claiming Malka had made unwanted sexual advances. The allegations quickly made their way to NeoGAF, causing several moderators at the site to step down in protest.

This is the best NeoGAF abandon ship post I've seen so far. pic.twitter.com/FaL2Hh9cUV

Gears Of War 4's October Update Brings New Maps, Halloween Event, And Xbox One X Support

Next week, a large update is coming to Gears of War 4, which introduces two new maps, Xbox One X support, and ushers in a Halloween event. The Xbox One X arrives on store shelves this November, and The Coalition says its preparing to bring support to the game as we lead up to its launch, by allowing players to pre-download 4K files.

While The Coalition didn't give specifics on what Xbox One X enhancements we can look forward to, the team says they will be providing more information "VERY soon." The Coalition, however, went into detail about what kind of maps and other content we'll see coming to the game as of next week.

The two new maps are Lift Apex and Fuel Depot. Fuel Depot is a map that was featured in the first Gears of War and Gears of War 2. Now, this large warehouse setting makes its return. Lift Apex, also inspired by an earlier map, is set in an Imulsion Extraction Facility in the middle of the Serano ocean. These two maps can be played by season pass holders as of October 23, whereas all other players can join in on October 30.
