Welcome to the weekend. Saturdays are all about staying up late and sleeping in, so I can’t blame you for having gotten behind on everything that’s been going on in the world of gaming, but I can definitely get you back up to speed. Today, we found out that some big Elden Ring news might be dropping, Fortnite is getting sued for being “too addictive,” and some bugs have been breaking Overwatch 2. These are just our top stories and so read on for the rest.
Fortnite Is Being Sued For Being Too "Addictive"
The popular battle royale game Fortnite is about to get sued for being “too addictive,” at least according to the plaintiffs. "The effects of videogame addiction including Fortnite on the brains of children is particularly damaging in that when they are continually attached to their machines, they develop severe deficiencies in their ability to integrate the full spectrum of emotions," the lawsuit explains. "Specialists report gaps in vocabulary as well as gaps in social integration. Indeed, it is recognized that the continued use of electronic devices causes significant changes to the prefrontal cortex of the human brain, changes that particularly affect young developing brains." The verdict remains to be seen.
Sombra Can Clip Through New Overwatch 2 Map, Kill Opponents In Spawn
Sombra can apparently clip through the walls of the latest map in Overwatch 2, ambushing opponents at their spawn point. This of course adds to a growing list of bugs and glitches in the game. Fans of the franchise have been posting "see you in two weeks, Sombra" to Twitter and various other social media platforms in response, a reference to how long developer Blizzard normally takes to fix character bugs.
Twitch Comes Under Fire For Endorsing Transphobic And "Autism Curing" Charities
The streaming platform Twitch recently came under fire for endorsing transphobic and “autism curing” charities. “Twitch platforming a trans hate group by allowing it to be a chosen ‘charity’ for streamers to raise money for is absolutely disgusting,” someone critical of the charity known as LGB Alliance for example posted on Twitter. “This needs to be removed immediately, I can’t believe it got on this list to begin with.”
Overwatch 2 Update Makes Doomfist Viable For The First Time Since Launch
The notorious Hero Doomfish just returned to the Overwatch franchise for the first time since Overwatch 2 came out. "He has terrorized every game I’ve been in since the new update," the user on Reddit known as Tarheel_204 pointed out. "Us Doomfist mains have been called garbage for playing him in Season 1," someone on the same social media platform going by the name of Demonking3246 added. "Now, I can play doom without being harassed."
