Halloween is almost on us, and game news is – well, actually pretty normal. Let's catch up.
Bethesda prepares to anticipate bugs with impatience
With the grace of an iPhone Notes apology, Bethesda tweeted to fans this week a very official letter of his Fallout 76 Beta test. The letter does two things: It expresses to the players that Bethesda is also not sure what kind of game it does in the Lonely Shooter / Multiplayer Chaos Hybrid; and it confirms that there will be mistakes. Many bugs. Well, there are advantages in properly calibrating expectations and reminding players that beta testing will become a dream of an entomologist (or at least a gambler's nightmare), but Bethesda's games are already tending towards this end of the spectrum, which is combined with some phrases here makes me laugh.
I know you all do your best. But you have to admit that bugs are pretty fun as "new spectacular problems".
Blizzard's adding some decent viewer tools to Overwatch For the World Cup

So it's nice to see that some of them get into the cultural Moloch side of things.
Recommendation of the Week: Sylvio on PC
For this Halloween week, try one of the scariest games I can imagine. Owned by Analog Technologies, Old Tape Recorders and Ghosts, Sylvio is an indie horror game that becomes one of the scariest, most intriguing horror experiences on any platform. It's a lightweight game that runs on most systems, and it will scare the bejeezus out of you. I could tell you more about what this game is about, but that would ruin the fun. Let me just say that it is sad, compassionate and scary, a story of lost souls and unreal horrors. There is also a sequel if you dig them out.
