Overwatch 2 Reveals New Control Map, Antarctic Peninsula

It’s been a big day for Overwatch 2 fans, as a new map is being introduced called Antarctic Peninsula.

Yakuza 0 Fans Are In A Frenzy Over A Real-Life Empty Lot Controversy

A fun story to end things now, as former New York governor Eliot Spitzer and a group of shareholders of an Upper East Side cooperative are quarreling over the rights to a dingy back alley that’s preventing Spitzers from building luxury condos. Obviously, that has nothing to do with gaming, unless you’re like one of the many Yakuza fans who immediately picked up on the story’s frightening amount of similarities to Yakuza 0’s plot.
