What To Watch This Weekend: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, PUBG, And Splatoon 2

Apex Legends doesn't have an esports scene (probably because it just came out this week with a surprise release), but that doesn't mean other games aren't ready for some high-level competition this weekend!

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open tournament has culled over 8,000 online players into a final 16, who'll compete live throughout the day. The action starts sometime between 11am and 2pm CT. You can also catch a similar event for Splatoon 2 on Sunday, featured on the same stream. (Stream)

The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds National Pro League goes into its second weekend later today with a pair of matches starting at 4pm Central today. (Stream / Schedule)

Report: Mass Layoffs At Activision Blizzard Will Result In Hundreds Of Lost Jobs

Report: Mass Layoffs At Activision Blizzard Will Result In Hundreds Of Lost Jobs

Bloomberg is reporting an upcoming plan from Activision Blizzard to lay off hundreds of workers as the company attempts to restructure and centralize its operations.

Sources tell us the layoffs will come from different parts of the company, including Blizzard, though it's not clear what parts of the studio will be affected. At the end of 2017, Activision employed 9800 people across all sections of the corporation.

The news comes after a rocky few months for Activision. While Call of Duty has been performing well, some things like the split with Bungie, Forsaken not meeting sales expectations, and flat numbers for games like Overwatch have resulted in a weaker price for Activision's stock, which has declined nearly 2.5 percent today.

Weekend Warrior - Become Legendary

It's that time of the week again, folks! Some of us are still gunning our way through Racoon City's zombie horde. Others, however, have set sights on Apex Legends and its tight gunplay and increasingly fun ability-kits. How will you be passing the weekend? Let us know!

Suriel Vasquez (@SurielVasquez) - Looking to score some champion wins with my Apex squad Claire and Mercia.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) - I’m still plugging away at Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III, but will take a break to go see the new Lego movie. And clean the house, I guess.

Guitar Hero Live Issuing Refunds For Purchasers In December

Guitar Hero Live Issuing Refunds For Purchasers In December

Guitar Hero Live, the latest version of Guitar Hero released in 2015, had an interesting new feature called Guitar Hero TV. Rather than having DLC, Guitar Hero TV was essentially a streaming service that allowed players to stream music in rotation on the channels and play along as they see fit. Some might even call it a selling point to the game, which Activision seemingly agrees with as they offer refunds for a very narrow window of purchasers.

The Guitar Hero publisher announced last summer that they'll be ceasing the service, but the news might not have gotten out to everyone. So for everyone who bought the game in December this past year before Guitar Hero TV closed down on January 1 is entitled to a refund for the game. You're left with the songs on the disc, but you get your money back.

To submit a claim, you have to show proof of purchase to Activision, who will then send you a gift card for the purchase price. If you don't have proof of purchase, they'll try to verify it on their end. But if you bought the game in November, you're out of luck.

Actress Who Plays Michonne To Depart From AMC's The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is just bloodletting left and right. After Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) left the show last year, it appears that another fan-favorite is on the way out. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, has signed a deal for the tenth season of the show but it's a deal that signals the end of her time with The Walking Dead. 

At least, the main show anyway. The report hints that Gurira's Michonne could "cross paths" with Lincoln's Grimes once more in one of AMC's slated spin-off films focusing on Grimes.

The new of Guria's departure comes shortly after her well-received role in Black Panther as Okoye. You can read the full report here
