    Well I really butchered this one.

    Edit: I switched from Fntastic to Fnatic halfway through the previous news post and never looked back I guess. It's all been fixed now. Thanks.

    The Day Before Releases Extended Gameplay Trailer
    by Shawn Zipay
    New footage was released, despite the trademark issue and delay.

    In late January 2023, The Day Before suffered a delay due to a supposed trademark dispute. The game was removed from Steam due to said trademark dispute, though Fntastic, the game's developer, initially said that it was removed due to a "technical difficulty" with the regular Steam maintenance. As we learned, that was a lie.

    The trademark woes were then revealed on Twitter. It seems as though Fntastic...

    Rockstar Releases Fix for GTA Online Security Exploit
    by Shawn Zipay
    This new patch will (hopefully) stop real hackers from ruining your fake online crimes.

    In January, a security vulnerability was discovered with GTA Online that could allow bad actors to essentially ruin your account. Hackers were able to completely wipe out your in-game money, reset account progress, and even screw with accounts so badly that they were banned from online play. If that wasn't bad enough, the creator of the unofficial Guardian firewall mod for Grand Theft Auto V speculated...

    The delay was announced through Twitter by game director Stig Asmussen. The short of it is that Respawn needs some more time to polish the final release and enhance performance.

    E3's big return sounds like it's more of a dud.

    In September 2022, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced that E3 was returning. Not only was it returning, but it would be the show's first in-person event in four years.

    Now, we're learning that none of the three major console makers will have any sort of presence at the trade show. Sony and Nintendo not having a presence probably isn't too surprising. Those two companies had already started to do their...
