Activision and Sledgehammer Games just confirmed that the next Call of Duty game, which is set to release in November 2017, will take place during World War II, making it the first Call of Duty game to do so since 2008's Call of Duty: World at War.

Overwatch is one heck of an online shooter, and it's kept its status high in many gamers' minds through the use of special events, as well as a constant stream of new details on the game's world and lore. Those two aspects are about to collide, judging by a new French trailer that's just been leaked, which shows off a bunch of stuff regarding an upcoming player-vs-AI event titled "Insurrection." Set seven years before the events of Overwatch, the event looks to feature a city under attack by Omnics, as well as a number of new skins and other unlockables for multiple characters.

Gamers interested in Yooka-Laylee were reasonably concerned when they saw critics give mostly average to mediocre scores for the retro revival title and 3D platformer from Playtonic Games. Many review outlets expressed that the biggest flaws with the game were its poor performance and sometimes erratic framerates, but now it looks like Playtonic is already addressing those concerns. Even before its commercial release, the developer has applied a patch to their game that should largely fix performances issues ranging from slowdown to poor camera controls.

Two days ago, the highly anticipated Persona 5 launched in the West. While this was cause for great celebration for Atlus fans, the company also ticked a lot of people off with its policy about streaming the JRPG. This policy, which can be found in its entirety here, basically boils down to "Be careful not to spoil the game for people. If you do, we may try to shut down your channel." As the makers of the game, Atlus has a right to make suggestions on how to best experience it, but outright threatening to take down accounts is an abuse of power.

Today is the day I've been waiting for all year—the day Persona 5 finally releases in the West! This is no doubt one of the biggest releases this year, and many people are eager to jump right into it. This means that Let's Plays and streams galore are bound to be posted in the near future. Unfortunately for these content creators, Atlus has posted a set of guidelines for showing off the game's content, along with the threat of having this content taken down if these guidelines are broken.

The opening cutscene for Rare's Donkey Kong 64 was rather unconventional, to say the least. The game opened with the "Donkey Kong Rap," a three-minute-long hip-hop song about the Kongs and their greatness. Because it was so hilariously bizarre, the DK Rap became an instant classic; the iconic "DK! Donkey Kong is here!" motif should be recognizable to any old-school Nintendo fan. Now that so many of the creators behind Donkey Kong 64 are working for Playtonic Games, the company decided to create a "Yooka-Laylee Rap," which parodies the original "Donkey Kong" rap with a whole new cast of characters.

A few days ago, Bungie  officially announced Destiny 2, followed by a teaser trailer and later, finally, an official reveal trailer. Now, I'm a self-professed Destiny mega-fan, so take my frenetic ravings with a grain of salt. But by just looking at the new trailer, it is clear that Destiny 2 will far surpass the original, specifically in the area of the story.

Destiny 2 has also been confirmed for PC and will have a beta in the summer. The game releases September 8th, and you can preorder the game now. Make the jump, watch the trailers, and keep reading.

Zero Suit Samus is one of the best fighters in the Super Smash Bros. series, so naturally, it was only a matter of time before fans found a way to bring her into other fighting games. Thanks to a new mod by DeviantArt user Khaledantar666, it's now possible to play as Zero Suit Samus in the PC version of Street Fighter V. The mod looks great: the fighting moves look natural and work perfectly, and Samus's character model is well-done and fits into the world of Street Fighter quite nicely.

YouTube star JonTron has been the subject of much controversy recently, after a series of insensitive racial comments that he made on Twitter and during an appearance on a live show with Destiny, a fellow YouTuber. His views on immigration and cultural assimilation have been perceived as racist by many fans, and as a result, he has received a lot of backlash, even losing over 10,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. Earlier today, JonTron received the worst hit yet, when Playtonic Games announced that it would be removing JonTron's voice work from its debut title, Yooka-Laylee, as the company did not wish to be associated with his personal views.
