Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu And Eevee's Soundtrack Is Now Available On iTunes

Starting in 2013, Game Freak figured out it would probably be a good idea to start putting all of its Pokémon game soundtracks on iTunes. It must be working out pretty well for the developer, because it has generally been keeping up and releasing each of their games' accompanying soundtracks online. Thankfully, Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee are no exception.

You can grab the soundtrack here for $9.99. For our review of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, head here where Brian Shea said, "Town and battle themes have been reworked and sound great."

Bethesda Permabans Homophobic Group In Fallout 76

Bethesda Permabans Homophobic Group In Fallout 76

There's been a lot of news surrounding Bethesda's new multiplayer Fallout game lately, most of it bad. Between rumors of a class-action lawsuit and accusations of false advertising, the publisher has had its hands full dealing with fan response. A new story about the people in the game, however, is one of the more disturbing things to come out from the game.

(Warning: The following story does its best to avoid using strong language, but it is unavoidable in some instances. Content warning for homophobic slurs.)

A Fallout 76 player named AJ tweeted out a video last night tagging Bethesda support showing harassment they received by players. In the video, AJ is confronted by a group of other players lead by a user named NathanTheHicc. Nathan's beef, judging from his voice chat comments, is that he was there to kill AJ because he's gay.

Valve Adjusting Revenue Share For Steam's Most Popular Games

Valve Adjusting Revenue Share For Steam's Most Popular Games

Valve has announced today that they're implementing a sales-proportional revenue model for Steam that seeks to give developers more revenue from their games and software as they get more popular.

The current model on Steam is a flat percentage, where Valve takes 33 percent of a game's revenue and the publisher takes the remaining 66 percent. By and large, this is common over the entire industry, with Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft having similar revenue splits in place. Valve's new model differs in that the 33 percent is now a temporary number until the game achieves threshold of revenue.

"Starting from October 1, 2018 (i.e. revenues prior to that date are not included), when a game makes over $10 million on Steam, the revenue share for that application will adjust to 75 percent/25 percent on earnings beyond $10M," Valve writes in a Steam Devworks announcement today. "At $50 million, the revenue share will adjust to 80 percent/20 percent on earnings beyond $50M. Revenue includes game packages, DLC, in-game sales, and Community Marketplace game fees. Our hope is this change will reward the positive network effects generated by developers of big games, further aligning their interests with Steam and the community."

Weekend Warrior – I Choose You, Arthur Morgan!

We’re getting close to December and a lot of the editors are starting to work out their games of the year list. That means many of us are trying to catch up on Red Dead Redemption II. It looks like the other most popular game this weekend is Pokémon Let’s Go, which seems like the furthest away from Red Dead you could get.

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Let us know in the comment below!

Javy Gwaltney – I’m traveling this week so in my free time I’m working on becoming the best Pokémon catcher and completing my season journey for my monk character in Diablo 3. Those great rifts are no joke!

Dragon Ball FighterZ Anime Music Pack Trailer Is Its Own Dragon Ball Opening

Dragon Ball FighterZ Anime Music Pack Trailer Is Its Own Dragon Ball Opening

Dragon Ball FighterZ's soundtrack when it released was entirely made of original tracks which Arc System Works felt best suited the game's battles. As it's an anime game with a long history, however, so many fans wanted music from the show, as well. While Bandai Namco released an Anime Music Pack as DLC earlier this year, they now have a second pack with different songs available for sale. The new pack focuses on more modern music, but still has some tracks for Dragon Ball Z fans in there, as well as classic background music.

You can check out the trailer below, which is essentially a mock OP for Dragon Ball FighterZ using in-game cutscene footage set to Dragon Ball Super's second OP Genkai Toppa X Survivor.

The full list of songs included in this pack are:

Rocksteady Not Announcing Anything At The Game Awards, Especially Not Superman

Rocksteady Not Announcing Anything At The Game Awards, Especially Not Superman

It's been over three years since Arkham Knight released, supposedly finishing the Arkham series for good. Since then, all eyes have been on developer Rocksteady, eagerly hoping for an announcement or hint for what the developer might have in store to succeed the critically-acclaimed Arkham trilogy. For whatever reason, rumors have been stirring that Rocksteady is developing a Superman game, rumors which for some reason include Game Informer. While we don't know for sure what Rocksteady is working on, we know it won't be revealed at The Game Awards, and that it's definitely not Superman.

The news comes according to a tweet from Sefton Hill, director and co-founder of Rocksteady.

Looking forward to #TheGameAwards this year! We’re still hard at work in our development bunker so don’t expect an announcement from @Rocksteadygames. When it’s ready to show, you’ll be the first to know. Spoiler: it’s not Superman 

Stardew Valley Transitioning To Self-Publishing, Developer Takes Over Most Versions

Stardew Valley Transitioning To Self-Publishing, Developer Takes Over Most Versions

Stardew Valley developer Eric Barone, who makes up the one-man studio ConcernedApe, has announced that he has ended his publishing agreement with publisher Chucklefish for most versions of Stardew Valley. Chucklefish will remain the publisher for the Nintendo Switch and mobile versions of the game, but all other rights are reverting back to Barone.

"When I first released Stardew Valley, I was a complete novice to the video game industry," Barone wrote in a blog post today. "Chucklefish, as my publisher, oversaw the distribution, console ports and translations of the game. They set up the official wiki and helped me redesign the website, to great effect. And of course, Tom Coxon did amazing work adding network code to the game, making multiplayer a reality. But I’m at a point now where I’m ready to move forward on my own. I think self-publishing is the end-goal of most indie developers, and I’m happy to be in a place where that’s possible!"

What this means is a practical sense is still to be determined. Barone likely ends up taking a much bigger cut of the game rather than sharing the revenue with Chucklefish. It will be interesting to see if the other versions of Stardew Valley end up differing in the future or if the publisher difference doesn't matter for updates.
