Streamer FrenchTomahawk launched a nuke in the final Fallout 76 beta

The Fallout 76 beta wrapped up today, meaning we won't be able to play it again until the official launch on November 14. And speaking of launches, the beta sessions which usually only ran for a few hours at a time, and not even on a daily basis, still gave a few players enough time to launch a nuke.

Activision says Destiny 2 is 'not performing as well as we'd like'

Destiny 2: Forsaken is a dramatic improvement on the base game in just about every way: It's "the second wind Destiny 2 needed," Austin said in his high-scoring review, with "expanded RPG elements and quality of life changes" that make it more compelling and less frustrating. Nonetheless, Activision said in its third quarter earning calls today that it is "not performing as well as we'd like."

Here are the Crackdown 3 system requirements

It's been a rocky road for Crackdown 3, which has been delayed multiple times since its announcement at E3 in 2014. Most recently, Microsoft pushed the game into February 2019, shortly after claiming that the previously-promised 2018 release was still on. This may finally, actually be the real deal, though, because the system requirements are now listed on the Microsoft Store, and you don't post those unless you're serious about releasing your game. Right?

This Commodore 64 demake of Limbo looks incredible

Name any ye olde computer system, and you can be certain there's a healthy online community dedicated to it. That holds especially true for the Commodore 64, which was among the top home computers of the 1980s, especially in the United States. I was still using mine well into the '90s (you can't go pass some Giana Sisters), but there remain folk who still hold it dear, 36 years after its release.

League of Legends' kick-ass K-Pop song is a chart-topping hit

K/DA is a pop group that doesn't actually exist: It's made up of League of Legends characters Ahri, Evelynn, Kai'Sa, and Akali. Despite that rather glaring handicap, it made a pseudo-real-life appearance last weekend at the LoL World Championships, on stage alongside real-life performers Madison Beer, Miyeon and Soyeon of K-pop girl group (G)I-DLE, and Jaira Burns—who also provide the voices behind the group—to perform the song Pop/Star.

The Long Dark episode 3 delayed, 'Redux' episodes 1 and 2 coming in December

Hinterland Studio creative director Raphael van Lierop delivered some disappointing news yesterday when he announced that the third episode of The Long Dark, which had been set to go live in December, isn't going to make it. But that bad news actually arises from bigger-picture good news—although the good news in question is the result of even more serious bad news. It's all kind of complicated, so I'll let van Lierop explain.
