Remnant: From the Ashes devs were 'really surprised' by 1.6 million sales

Remnant from the Ashes was a surprising game in many ways. What initially seemed to me like a rote Gears of War clone soon revealed itself to be a wild and furiously challenging adventure across multiple planets, with imaginative weapons and ferocious boss fights. It also surprised its own developers, Gunfire Games. Since launch, Remnant has sold 1.6 million copies, far surpassing expectations.

No Man's Sky takes a terrifying new turn in its Desolation update

It's been a bizarre few weeks for parts of the Twitch community following the controversial ban of Guy 'Dr Disrespect' Beahm, an extremely popular streamer who had over 4 million followers at the time of his ban. Twitch historically never comments on actions it takes against its users, and except for a brief statement, Beahm was also quiet about the situation, leading to intense speculation. In an interview with PC Gamer published today, however, he said that Twitch still hasn't told him the reason for his ban, and confirmed he would not be returning to the platform.
