LawBreakers trailer destroys Earth’s moon, fudges science a bit

LawBreakers trailer destroys Earth’s moon, fudges science a bit

In the first trailer for the Boss Key production LawBreakers, this game suggests what might happen were our moon to suddenly explode. They suggest that this explosion was caused by humans - that'd be a feat in and of itself: this massive rock is 3,475 km in diameter and not an easy nut to crack. The moon would require the equivalent of 30 trillion megatons of TNT to destroy - 600 billion nuclear warheads or more.

YouTube Gaming to launch tomorrow on Web and mobile

Google is about to put Twitch, and Amazon, on notice tomorrow when it finally launches YouTube Gaming in full. Revealed back in June, this corner of YouTube is Google's attempt to wrest the crown away from Twitch, which it was rumored to have tried to acquire.

At least well enough to warrant a major expansion to this sub-franchise of the Warcraft line. Like you would expect from a card game expansion, The Grand Tournament dumps a whole lot of new cards for players, just a bit over 130 in total.

Nintendo patent reveals game console without optical drive

A newly discovered patent from Nintendo reveals the gaming company may be planning to ditch the optical drive in its next console. Thankfully they aren't planning to make a return to cartridges, like in the pre-GameCube days, but rather forego any kind of drive at all for inserting games. Instead, it seems Nintendo may have finally caught up to the thinking of Sony and Microsoft, and sees a future where games are downloaded over the internet and stored locally.

While the good news here is that another awful public shooting incident may have been prevented, the strange part is that the two were participants in the Pokemon World Championships. The Boston Police Department had been warned in advance after James Stumbo, 27, and Kevin North, 18, had posted an image of the weapons on Facebook along with mentions of the tournament.
