    If you happen to A: Still have a PS3 and B: Still play Demon's Souls, I have some bad news. The online servers are finally shutting down on February 28 2018.

    In a world where many games with online connectivity get shut down within 5 years of release, Demon's Souls, released in 2009, was supposed to be shut down in May 2012, but then got extended "indefinitely." It appears that that time has come to and end, but nearly 9 years is a good run for a game such as this, where online really was an enhancement, as opposed to a requirement.

    Be ready to shed a tear...

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 sold a disappointing ~7 million copies, with the furor over the pay-to-win microtransactions being cited as a reason for the sales not reaching their targets. Don't worry though, because EA claims they're definitely coming back (microtransactions anyways, whether they'll be P2W is yet to be seen.)

    Star Wars Battlefront II disappoints with over 7 million sold

    The sad thing is that 7 million copies is still a great number compared to most other AAA games. The only reason that number is disappointing to EA is because the Battlefront 1 sold extremely well at over 14 million copies.

    Some Red Dead Redemption 2 leaks have come out. Whether or not these are legit is still to be verified, but they point to some interesting things, such as the obvious Online mode a'la GTA V, but also a Battle Royale Mode (Think PUBG) and a First Person mode, along with some other things.

    Exclusive: This is the biggest Red Dead Redemption 2 leak yet

    Did anyone watch the Bethesda announcement from E3 tonight. Fallout 76 should be awesome and comes out this November already.

    So did this get moved too far down the forum and lose what little traffic it had? It's worse than the sports forum in here.

    I think it's because yourbeliefs hasn't been around for a month or more, he was pretty much the main contributor here.

    I think you're going to be waiting for a while yet though. They didn't really show much other than just a quick teaser that they are indeed working on it.

    I'm thinking that as well, but on the other hand confirmation after all this time is good. It's been 7 years since Skyrim's release, I'm just happy to know they are working on it.

    But Bethesda is good at keeping things under wraps, they may be further along than what it seems. I guess time will tell, I can wait, LOL.

    Yeah, they didn't even tell which province it would be in. My guess is it'll be several more years.
