What Just Happened? is a feature recapping the week’s most interesting stories.
Election Day is now a thing of the past, gamers, and with a new president – president-elect, rather – comes new developments in the gaming world. Retail behemoths are toppled, online modes flourish, breaks from franchise tradition are awarded with many, many greenbacks. “Multiplatform” has a meaning again, while certain consoles are criticized and new IPs are lauded. Busy, busy week, but no zombies, unfortunately. Perhaps they’re all playing Gears of War 2. But won’t all that gore make them…HUNGER? We shudder to think!
