Keeping with MS, they've gone and done it a contract for an Xbox One at the moment it's USA only and says limited availability etc but this plays even more into my prediction years ago od Xbox going service based.

That I would not be shocked the rumoured streaming SKU of Scarlett is a contract from the get-go in someway.

Seems as though Telltale is to shut soon. They're leaving behind a skeleton crew of about 25 staff to wrap up with their current projects, but they've cancelled a lot of projects in the pipeline and laid off a lot of staff.

I think it's been down to trying to expand much too quickly following the success of TWD's first season. They were trying to juggle too many plates. I read that nearly all of their projects lost them money with Batman being the biggest flop in terms of revenue. It was a bit of a slippery slope for them in that by not making money from some of their projects, they couldn't then go on to invest in their engine to make sure it was running well. The later Telltale games were seemingly plagued with technical problems - I distinctly remember multiple crashed playing the last episode of TFTB - and that turned me away from picking up their other titles.

It's a shame as they've put out some cracking stories over the years - TWD's first season, The Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands were all brilliantly written and great fun. It's sad to see a studio of this calibre fade away, but it's clear to see why it's happened.

Apparently it's Minecraft that they're finishing off, not TWD's last season...? I'd be pretty pissed off if I'd bought the season pass for that one!

Also they put out a statement saying some partners are looking at helping them finish Walking Dead, all rather odd.

It sounds like colossal mismanagement of the highest degree. They should absolutely be doing whatever they can in their deathbed to release a complete final season of TWD. People paid for that - they need to honour it.

Hopefully the folks that were sacked land on their feet quickly - maybe Campo Santo can pick up a few?

But should they be any fund's they get to really finish the game when 250 employees have just been sacked with nothing?

Mas is absolutely correct. If Telltale have an obligation to anyone, its to tbe employees who need food and rent and security for their family, not entitled nerds who might be a tenner out of pocket and unsure whether or not a pretend person was bitten by a zombie.

It seems like they're not even doing that though - that's why there's a class action lawsuit going out against the company as there was zero severance pay combined with the zero notice. They're fucking everybody over, both consumers and staff, by the looks of things.

This all started a while back when a former co-founder and CEO sued them in the summer.

It's been going on longer than that, as borderlands almost didn't get finished, they must have had a injection of cash back then.

Some good gaming news as GLAAD is adding an Outstanding Video Game category alongside categories for films, TV series, musicians, comic books.

I think this just shows how far gaming has come in terms of LGBTQ being represented in some way in the medium. The award does include canon stuff, so if it was done a few years ago then Overwatch would have counted due to the comic book where we learn Tracer has a girlfriend but this award looks at 2018.

Ah - GLAAD. GLADD is specifically doctors and dentists - that confused me for a bit! Well, either way, this is a Thumbs Up!
