The Witcher Dev’s DRM-Free PC Store Launches Big New Sale

GOG, the DRM-free PC digital store run by The Witcher studio CD Projekt, has rolled out a new sale. It's called “The Big Deal,” and it definitely lives up to its name. The promotion features more than 200 deals, some of which offer discounts as deep as 90 percent.
Here are some of the deals that caught our eye: Little Nightmares ($12.80), This War of Mine ($4.50), Age of Wonders iii ($6.60), Firewatch ($7.09), Tacoma ($12.60), The Witness ($12.60), Layers of Fear ($5), Kentucky Route Zero ($12.50), and Rime ($19).

Super Mario Odyssey File Size Revealed

The file size for the hugely anticipated Nintendo Switch game Super Mario Odyssey has been revealed–and it's not as big as you might expect. According to Nintendo Everything, the file size is only 5.7 GB for the digital version.
This is according to a post on Nintendo's Japanese store. By comparison, other first-party games on Switch are also pretty small, with Arms coming in at 2.2 GB and Splatoon 2 at 3.1 GB.
Another point of comparison that Nintendo Everything mentions is that Super Mario 3D World, the last 3D Mario game for a home console, was 1.7 GB on Wii U.
Super Mario Odyssey launches on October 27. A new trailer broadcast during a Nintendo Direct last week showed Mario shirtless–and people had a lot to say about that. In other news, Nintendo announced an Odyssey Switch bundle that comes with a system, a copy of the game, red Joy-Cons, and a Switch carrying case with special markings on it.

Star Wars: Donald Glover Would Be Honored To Direct

Donald Glover had a big night at the 69th Primetime Emmys, as the multi-talented actor took home an award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the FX series Atlanta. Now, many are clamoring for him to take the reigns of the next Star Wars movie.
After the event, Glover, who is playing Lando Calrissian in next year's Han Solo film, heard what his vocal fans had to say about his future with Star Wars, but he seemed very humble and a little intimidated: “I would be honored, but it's a big plate, it's a big plate. That's a buffet plate,” Glover told Entertainment Tonight. “I don't know if I'm ready for that yet.”
While there are no wheels in motion for Glover to direct a Star Wars movie, there is still another spinoff Star Wars movie hitting theaters in 2020. Director Josh Trank left the film after his Fantastic Four movie bombed. Many are speculating that the subject of the next film could be Obi-Wan Kenobi, and with a directing seat open, Glover..

Here’s What That Controversial Destiny 2 Hunter Item Looks Like After Today’s New Update

Following a scheduled maintenance period today, Destiny 2 is back online, and a new update is now available. Among other things, it addresses the controversial item that featured a design associated with a hate group.
Bungie announced last week that it had discovered an item in Destiny 2 “share[d] elements with a hate symbol.” It described this as unintentional and apologized, vowing to remove the item swiftly. It did now specify the name of the item, but fans quickly discovered that it was likely the Hunter's Road Complex AA1 gauntlets. A longer-than-expected maintenance period last week saw the item partially, but not completely removed–the actual in-game version was replaced, but the thumbnail and inventory view still showed the original version.
Although it's not mentioned in the patch notes for the new update, version, Bungie has now completely removed the offending imagery as promised. In the images above, you can see that the design is now gone. The underlying..
