There's a bit of a rogue-lite vibe to the description the game's creative director, Pierre Tarno, provided in a recent post on the PlayStation Blog:

Destiny 2: Forsaken Stream Recaps and ImpressionsJason Love

I'll go ahead and say at the start of all this that while there aren't a ton of story spoilers in any of these videos, we do play through the entirety of the second campaign mission in the first video, talk about some story stuff in the second video, and then show off the Dreaming City in the fourth and fifth videos. If you're interested in thoughts/impressions on Destiny 2: Forsaken without seeing/knowing anything more than has already been revealed, then I'd skip those videos for now.

All of this additional content has since been bundled into the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove package, which will be getting a physical release on April 9th, 2019.  The digital version is already out and currently contains the base game, the two available story expansions, and some additional goodies.  However, the third and final expansion, "King of Cards", will also be released on the same day, meaning it will be included in the physical version and available as a free download to those who currently own the digital version.

The announcement came via the Bandai Namco Twitter account and included an announcement trailer (seen separately below). This announcement was followed the next by the Bandai Namco UK account stating that the Trilogy is a U.S./Asia release only... Bummer...

The Dreaming City is Destiny's "largest endgame experience ever" and features all the things you'd expect for a new raid: puzzles to solve, mysteries to decipher, and tons of enemies for you to use all your fancy armaments on.  Bungie also explicitly warns players that a terrible evil lies at the heart of the city, most likely to prevent any lawsuits stemming from unstoppable corruption of one's very soul.

While I use the Sensei 310 for my day to day work, when it comes to gaming it lacks the comfort required for extended sessions. So I called up the Amazon Fairy and ordered the Rival 310 and Rival 600. Both mice are very similar in specs, with the shapes and features being slightly different.

In case you haven't heard of Warface before, it's a shooter focused on cooperative tactical action that allows players to team up in five person squads and take on a range of missions varying in both scope and difficulty.  Gamers short on time can make quick escapades into PVE missions, while those who really want to dive in can take on raid-style levels requiring a larger amount of time, a higher level of teamwork, and a bit more tactical nuance.

Nick and I tried using Parsec a little while back when it was still in its beta. The idea was very cool, but there were still some bugs to work out. In the time since, it appears the team has done just that and made it a lot more user-friendly and stable. Check out out the two video recaps below to see how it works!

SIEE is certainly no stranger to shutting down servers for games. They've got a whole site setup just for their region that lists what's already been taken offline and what's next for the chopping block. Curiously, it appears that Europe is the only region that does this.

If you're not familiar with the Yo-Kai Watch series, it exploded in popularity in Japan a few years ago generating not only (to date) two sequels with a third on the way for the Switch, an entire toy line, and an anime series. The hook to these games is similar to the Pokemon series. Your protagonist of choice uses a special watch to capture "yo-kai" and goes around their town helping people by battling the evil spirits that haunt them. The yo-kai you capture can level up and evolve into stronger versions of their previous forms, and the sequels even introduced two versions of the game with unique yo-kai in each version that could be traded to friends.
