    Todd Howard Weighs in on Joining Team Xbox

    It just works.

    Todd Howard, head of Bethesda Game Studios, has also decided to weigh in on today's news that Microsoft is acquiring ZeniMax for $7.5 billion (USD). Howard shared his thoughts via a posting at Bethesda.net just a short while ago today.

    He seems to view this new partnership as a match made in heaven. He and the Xbox team have long aligned in their views on gaming.

    Microsoft Will Punish Retailers that Break the Xbox Series X Pre-Order Time

    This according to Geoff Keighley.

    Pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are slated to go live starting September 22 at 8AM (PT). This will give consumers plenty of time to get an order in ahead of the official launch date of November 10 for both consoles. This pre-order date has been known about for quite some time now.

    However, following the sloppy pre-order phase of the PlayStation 5, Microsoft is taking steps to ensure retailers stick to the specified time...

    Halo Infinite Delayed Until 2021

    Pushed right out of the launch window for the Series X.

    There is some unfortunate news to share with you today. 343 Industries just announced that they are delaying the release of Halo Infinite out of 2020. In fact, it has been pushed back to an unspecified time in 2021 in an effort to "ensure the team has adequate time to deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision."

    This means that Halo Infinite will now no longer launch alongside the release of the...

    Microsoft Confirms Free Online Multiplayer for Halo Infinite

    Confirmed after a short bout as a rumor.

    Microsoft confirmed the short-lived rumor that Halo Infinite would have free multiplayer. Not only that, but they also confirmed that Halo Infinite, at least the multiplayer component, will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. I'm sure that will also hold true for the PC release as well. Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...

    Fable Trademark Renewed

    Indicative of nothing.

    Microsoft has renewed the trademark for Fable. This comes shortly after the company kind of downplayed the significance of a Fable placeholder Twitter account.

    The fact that Microsoft has renewed the Fable trademark signifies literally nothing. However, this is also something that I know a number of people will be interested in knowing. Companies renew trademarks all the time. For instance, Nintendo held on to the Eternal Darkness trademark for God...

    The Nether Update for Minecraft is Out June 23

    Big additions are coming to Minecraft.

    For the most part, there isn't a whole lot that goes on in the Nether in Minecraft. The last I knew, it had some lava, some unique blocks, maybe a fortress here and there, but that was kind of it. On June 23, there might actually be a good reason to frequently visit the not-quite-hell dimension besides as an expressway to travel great distances.

    June 23rd marks the release date for the big Nether Update for Minecraft. This update...

    Y'arr, thar be booty to plunder!

    Microsoft and Rare announced that Sea of Thieves is coming out on Steam on June 3. The game has been growing quite steadily over the past couple of years on the Xbox One and Windows 10, largely due to Xbox Game Pass, but now it's time for it to shine on Steam.

    If you were wondering, the game has grown and gotten a number of substantial updates over the past couple of years. It is a far better and more content filled game than it was when...
