Apex Legends starts penalizing players who quit matches early

In early April, news surfaced that Respawn would start penalizing players who left a match early. The quit penalty has been requested by players since the battle royale game's launch, the idea being that a single team member who quits the game can leave the rest of the remaining players at a strong disadvantage.

There's no question that Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest games at E3 2019. From the reveal that Keanu Reeves will be in the game (and the appearance of Reeves himself as a hype man) to the announcement of its release date at long last, Cyberpunk 2077 definitely dominated headlines and discussion throughout the week.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are ditching Mega Evolution and Z-Moves

In recent years - ever since the series jumped to the Nintendo 3DS - the Pokemon franchise has been introducing some wide-reaching battle mechanics. First we had Mega Evolution, which allowed certain Pokemon to evolve into even more powerful monsters for the duration of a battle.

Here’s how Atari VCS will run PC games

As far as the Atari VCS is concerned, the biggest news to come out of E3 2019 was the launch of pre-orders for the machine.

HORI’s Nintendo Switch Grip Controller is coming to the US

HORI’s Nintendo Switch Grip Controller is coming to the US

In general, the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con controllers are pretty solid devices, especially since they don't add a lot of extra bulk when you attach them to the sides of the console. When you're playing an action-heavy game in handheld mode, though - say Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - they can leave a lot to be desired. That's where HORI, purveyor of licensed Switch accessories, and its new Grip Controller come in.

Xbox Game Pass is a pretty great service if you've got an Xbox One, and just recently we saw it expand to PC as well.

The Nintendo Switch specifically has been the subject of some recent Game Pass rumors, but Xbox chief Phil Spencer unfortunately poured some cold water on those reports during an interview at E3 2019.

Pokemon boss justifies Sword and Shield Pokedex limitations

Pokemon Sword and Shield's appearance at E3 2019 was somewhat marred by the reveal that the Pokemon you'll be able to use will be limited by the Galar region's Pokedex. Essentially, if you have a Pokemon that doesn't appear in the Galar Pokedex, you won't be able to transfer it over to Sword and Shield. As you might imagine, the internet's reaction to this news was pretty negative.

Final Fantasy VII remake will probably be on PlayStation 5 too

Now that Sony and Microsoft have both talked about their next consoles to some degree, it's clear that the next generation is nearly upon us. That little fact begs the question of what's going to happen with the games that are launching on current hardware right before these new consoles release. Will those games make the jump to the new consoles as well? In the case of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII remake at least, it sounds like there's a pretty good chance of that happening.
