Each week we’ll break down ten news stories and facts that just didn’t quite make the list for a segment.  We’ve got 1 minute per topic before we move onto the next; finished or not.  Gotta go fast…in the Speed Run.

 

  1. After dozens of games and hundreds that you gotta catch, Pokemon has eclipsed over 300 million in shipped games.
  2. Nintendo’s new Animal Crossing mobile game has been seeing intermittent issues when trying to play.  Nintendo has apologized and hope to resolve all issues soon, and is giving players 20 leaf tickets for those who log in within the next month
  3. Marvel Heroes Developer Gazillion Entertainment lays off ALL it’s employees the day before Thanksgiving, and reportedly employees are not being given  PTO or severance packages.  In addition, the game was officially shut down last Friday, instead of the early December time window.
  4. Hawaii state legislator Chris Lee wants to limit sales of games with Loot Boxes, calling it “Predatory behavior”, as Battlefront 2 has set the tone to possibly change what rules and laws games can have in different states
  5. Justice League is currently trending to be the lowest grossing box office film of the 5 DCEU movies to date.  Analysts are pegging the super hero team up to bring in a total between $590-$635 million dollars with total costs and expenditures placed at $575 million.
  6. Destiny 2 developer makes significant changes to its experience/engram earning system after players learn that the system is rigged to have hidden diminishing returns on repeat plays.
  7. Xbox One X sales are beating analyst’s expectations, all major retailers are reporting extremely positive sales and the console sold 80,00 units in its first week in the UK, a figure that took the ps4 pro 4 weeks to accomplish.
  8. Amazon took half, at least of all Black Friday sales.  Neegan would be proud.
  9. Coco led the box office with over $90 million in revenue.  This marks 3 in a row thanksgiving box office success for Disney; Frozen, Moana and Coco.
  10. While many did in fact adore Coco, it seems that people equally hated the 21 minute Frozen “Short” that played before Coco.
