SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK

 

Discussion:

Amy Hennig (director of Uncharted and Soul Reaver) has left EA, and is working on building her own small studio.

Remember when EA said they were reworking her project to make it multiplayer/open world? Sounds like she split with them as a result, clear back in January. Hopefully we see something from her soon, it’s been more than 5 years!

Amazon Prime no longer gives you 20% off re-releases or remasters.

I still hate Best Buy.

During all that rocket nonsense in Fortnite, some dude broke the giant staircase folks were watching it on, killing 48 people in one game and giving him the new record.

Genius or madman? This is why we can’t have nice things.
