Wondering why Forza Horizon 5's marketplace is suddenly full of shitty old Jeeps when there's a whole world of fast and expensive sports cars out there?
It was teased back in March, but today YouTube made it official: the platform will be removing the dislike counter, meaning you'll no longer be able to look at a video and think, gee, this isn't a very popular video, I'm sure it's just a bad video and not at all the result of a weaponised fanbase and/or political…
Earlier today, a bunch of Fortnite players found themselves in possession of the Axe of Champions, one of the rarest items in the game, only to have it snatched away after a few minutes. Fortnite developer Epic Games says the whole thing was a big mistake.

The latest game in the open world spin-off series, and the 13th Forza game over all, Forza Horizon 5 is a mostly known quantity. But nearly a decade after the Horizon series started, it feels like many are encountering it for the first time. And they're loving it, in a way that's sucking up all the oxygen in the room…
Among the scores of wonderful things added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in its most recent update, the most personally exciting has got to be the return of the Gyroids.

In the wake of Ubisoft, EA, Square Enix, Sega, and Zynga announcing their interest in or direct support of blockchain tech and NFTs, things are looking pretty bleak for anyone who enjoys living on a hospitable planet.

Valve has delayed the release of its Steam Deck handheld by several months, it announced in a statement today. The anticipated handheld will now start rolling out in February 2022, pushed back from an initial December release.
Valheim's Mistlands have been proving one of the game's most enduring mysteries - at least, to players who don't just browse the wiki. The Mistlands serve as a placeholder biome, and will be expanded to full glory in the next major biome update. In the meantime, it's just been a cool, spooky spot with giant trees and spiderwebs - at least, it was until the most recent patch.
As the patch notes simply say "removed clutter from spawning in Mistlands (It's now...very empty)". And, indeed, it is very empty. Any Mistlands you've previously explored will still have their trees and cobwebs, but any unexplored Mistlands will now spawn as empty, gently hilled terrain. It still gets pretty dark there, at least.
"The finalized Mistlands won't have the giant trees that were there in the placeholder biome," as Valheim's community manager explains on Reddit. "We don't yet know if you'll be needing a completely new world or not in order to get the new content when it eventually updates, but we'll be making some sort of announcement about it as soon as we know for sure!"Valheim system requirements, Valheim building tips, Valheim progression guide
The Game Awards is less than a month away, and the Dorito Pope himself is starting to reveal what we can expect from the show. Ahead of the December show, Geoff Keighley has revealed some details about the show's format and content, which will include dozens of game announcements. And while there might be a little metaverse, at least there'll be zero NFTs.
40 to 50 games will be shown at The Game Awards in "some way or another", as Keighley says in an Epic blog, including at least ten brand-new game announcements. "There'll be a lot of content for 2022 and 2023 that will be showing us our kind of biggest lineup yet of world premieres and announcements.".
The show will return to its live format on December 9 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and it seems that on stage it'll all be pretty similar to the pre-COVID format, complete with an orchestra and some number of celebrity guests. The real difference is going to be the crowd, which is going to be cut in half in keeping with safety requirements.Steam FAQ, Steam family sharing, Steam in-home streaming
If you're eagerly anticipating the next in-depth look at Bethesda's upcoming space RPG game Starfield, then set your sights on the studio's summer games showcase. Bethesda game director and executive producer Todd Howard says the company has plans to show more of Starfield next summer, and that likely means during its E3-adjacent show.
During an AMA held on Reddit today, November 10, Howard was asked whether Starfield will have any "groundbreaking innovations that will set a high bar for the next generation of action RPGs," the way Skyrim did in 2011.
"We prefer to just show it, which should be next summer," Howard responded. That almost certainly means the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, which will likely be held on the Sunday evening prior to the week of official E3 events in mid-June. This year's Xbox and Bethesda show was when we got our first real glimpse of Starfield, in a stunning teaser trailer that showed an astronaut boarding a ship on a rocky desert planet.Starfield release date, Best space games, Elder Scrolls 6 release date
November 10, 2021 Epic has confirmed that the Naruto x Fortnite crossover is happening soon.
'Naruto in Fortnite' is on the verge of reaching 'Sora in Smash' levels of internet infamy, but the sheer volume of leaks and rumours around Shonen Jump's favourite ninja appearing in Epic's favourite battle royale game have been far too prolific to ignore. Now Epic has finally made it official.
Epic has tweeted a teaser image for the crossover between Fortnite and Naruto: Shippuden, confirming that it will launch on November 16. The official announcement comes after a tweet from venerable Fortnite leaker HypeX, who suggests that both Naruto cosmetics and a new Hidden Leaf Village creative hub are on the way.
That launch would put Naruto right at the time of the Fortnite 18.40 release date, which is expected to be the final major update of the season. Epic's apparently making some major creative mode changes there, too, with a revamped XP system that'll prevent you from farming for experience while AFK.Fortnite V-Bucks, Fortnite Skins, Fortnite Creative Codes
The SteamWorld series has been one of the coolest sets of indie games out there, though with the growth of its publisher the 'indie' label might be fraying a bit. But that growth just means that SteamWorld is getting bigger, and today Thunderful Games has announced that it's going full 3D with SteamWorld Headhunter. And, if you need a refresher on the tone and setting, the best game in the series is free-to-keep for a limited time.
SteamWorld Headhunter is a third-person 3D action game with co-op and "a head-popping twist". The announcement trailer is all CG and doesn't reveal much, but we see a pair of robotic gunslingers have a showdown, and the head of one of the fighters detaches for a sneak attack - given the title, that's certainly a hint at a central game mechanic.
For now, you can head over to Steam or GOG to pick up SteamWorld Dig 2 for free. If you haven't played it, it's one of the finest Metroidvanias out there - a fantastic blend of exploration and combat that even manages to sneak a little Minecraft into the formula. The giveaway is only available for one day, but if you claim the game it'll remain in your library forever.
November 10, 2021 Innersloth has officially announced the arrival of League of Legends champion cosmetics in the Among Us in-game store.
Riot Games is teasing a crossover between League of Legends and Among Us. The developer's new RiotX Arcane Progress Days trailer features a shot of some Among Us crewmates tootling around in LoL-inspired duds. One crewmate we see is dressed as an enforcer from the Arcane show's Piltover city, while the other looks like League of League's inventor Heimerdinger.
If you've been out of the loop, Riot has been celebrating the launch of the Arcane Netflix show with various crossovers with games like Fortnite and PUBG alongside in-game events for League of Legends. Progress Days is the next one, and it's themed around an in-show holiday that sees the people of Piltover celebrate all things tech.
Today, Innersloth tweeted confirmation of the crossover, showing an Enforcer and 'Heimer' crewmembers near the cockpit, wearing champion-inspired visors and other knickknacks. The cosmetics will be available via the Arcade Cosmicube, which is due out November 12.
Like countless other products, Valve's new Steam Deck has been impacted by global supply chain slowdowns. The company says it won't be able to start shipping out its portable gaming PC as planned next month, and now estimates that the first Steam Deck units will start heading customers' way in February next year.
"The launch of Steam Deck will be delayed by two months," Valve says in an email sent out today, November 10, to customers who reserved units earlier this year. "We're sorry about this—we did our best to work around the global supply chain issues, but due to material shortages, components aren't reaching our manufacturing facilities in time for us to meet our initial launch dates."
Valve says customers with reservations will keep their place in the queue, but the schedule for fulfillment will simply shift to the new February start date. The company says it will have updated reservation dates "shortly" and will "keep you updated as we go." In a Steam Community post, Valve says the "change in the launch date doesn't change any of our plans with the Steam Deck Verified program or our upcoming virtual event."Steam Deck – everything we know, Best Steam Deck games, Which of Valve's Steam Decks should you pick up?
When an established series takes a creative risk, you can generally expect some scepticism, perhaps even outright dismay. And the decision to eschew the linear-but-branching structure of FromSoftware's recent hits in favour of an open world is indeed a risk; the tight direction of the player's experience that such a structure affords, is a big reason those games work so well. But I don't recall much gnashing of teeth when it was announced.
Perhaps that's because George R.R. Martin's involvement stole a lot of the oxygen, but I'm also sure From's track record has something to do with it. The studio has dropped more bangers than Wile E. Coyote since Demon's Souls in 2009; does anyone seriously doubt that it can pull this off?

Thunderful World took place tonight. It offered a look at several games from Thunderful, the biggest of which was a new SteamWorld third-person co-op action game. Below you'll find that and every other game from the show that is headed to PC.
Paco Rabanne describe the robot-shaped bottle for their new fragrance, Phantom, as "your new wingman." The advert shows this in action, with the robot floating through a party, its behaviour on a spectrum somewhere between a '90s dancing baby meme and a horny BB-8.
This same screwtop fuckboi can now be your wingman in Curved Space, a twin-stick shmup of no particular note. "It is the first time a fragrance has featured in a game as a playable character" is a line from the press release. I love it, I hate it.
Tonight, Thunderful hosted a livestream of announcements, including a new SteamWorld game and a release date for The Gunk from SteamWorld's creators. They've also put a bunch of their games on sale, including giving classic platformer SteamWorld Dig 2 away for free for the next 24 hours.
The Gunk is a third-person action adventure from the makers of SteamWorld, set on a planet covered in a gelatinous goo. You hoover it up. It was announced last year, and we now know it'll launch on PC via Xbox Game Pass on December 16th.
Delightful, genre-hopping series SteamWorld will return in SteamWorld Headhunter. It's another first for the series, in that it's 3D, and it's a third-person co-op action adventure. There's a first teaser trailer below.
Valve have delayed the Steam Deck, their handheld PC, until February 2022. Originally due to start shipping at the end of this year, Valve put out the announcement today that pinned the slip on "global supply chain issues".
