    Welcome to another weekend. Here's a recap of some of the week's biggest stories and others you may have missed.

    The Big Stuff:


    The waiting is the hardest part, but wait we must. Nintendo confirmed this week that it will hold a presentation in January 2017 where it will reveal the Nintendo Switch's price, system specs, and launch lineup. Don't expect any other big news about the console until then, at least not from Nintendo. [Full story]

    The old is new again as Bethesda this week launched a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim called the Special Edition. It has better-looking characters and environments, as well as support for mods on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Time to go back to Skyrim.

    Halloween is right around the corner. Some big-name games are celebrating the spooky occasion, including Grand Theft Auto V, Gears of War 4, World of Warcraft, and many more. Check out GameSpot's roundup of all the games holding Halloween events here.

    The Other Stuff:


    Sega may never make an open-world Sonic game, but that doesn't mean no one will. One fan has started a fan project for an open-world Sonic game and the early results look pretty promising. See the footage and get the details at Kotaku.

    What's being called Cuba's first independent video game has launched a crowdfunding effort. The game is called Savior, and it's a 2D platformer in which the characters discover they're actually in a game. The campaign was launched by Cuban multimedia artist Josuhe Pagliery, the founder of Empty Head Games. The team is looking for $10,000 on Indiegogo to get the project off the ground.

    The hunt is on for a Battlefield 1 Easter egg involving headphones and Morse code. DICE is known for its elaborate Easter eggs, and it looks like this could be just the latest one. Read more at GamesRadar.

    Nintendo's iconic platformer has loads of coins to collect. But you will never collect this one coin. Check out this in-depth video to learn more about the unobtainable coin and the story behind it.


    Collider has a great interview with Westworld star Jimmi Simpson. Among other things, he talks about how Episodes 1-4 of the HBO sci-fi/western are just a "warm up" for what's to come. Read the interview here.

    It's almost Halloween. Sony is celebrating with a "Sale of the Dead" on the PlayStation Store, offering discounts on spooky games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. See all the deals here.

    World of Warcraft's new 7.1 patch for the Legion expansion came out this week. Return to Karazhan, as the patch is called, adds a new raid and makes PvP changes, among a long list of other things. Get all the details on WoW's 7.1 patch here on Blizzard's website.

    The next expansion for Cities: Skylines is called Natural Disasters. As the name suggests, this add-on is all about horrible things that can happen to your city, like an earthquake, a flood, a fire, or a tornado. Publisher Paradox has now released a trailer for the expansion--and it looks great.


    You might not have asked for it, but someone has launched a Kickstater campaign for the "ultimate gaming deodorant." They want $25,000 to make it a reality. Read all about it at the page here.

    What's it going to take for Alan Wake 2 to happen? According to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, developer Remedy has to want to make it. He said that in an interview with Stevivor recently, suggesting that Remedy may be looking at other ideas instead.

    Now that Destiny's Halloween event is underway, people have recreated the music video from Michael Jackson's Thriller using the new content. Very cool.


    Have a wonderful weekend!
