And now for the news... Apex Legends is the most played game. Period. We can all go home now. Its done. With 25 million players in the first week and being the most watched on Twitch, it looks like the sun might be setting on Fortnite... Old games are new again with Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate, Planetscape: Torment and other classic RPGs coming to Xbox. Activision earns a record profit and celebrates by firing close to 800 people. 


We have also decided to be beer critics. For the reasons that we have. It might not be such a good idea...
