Watch Dogs Legion looks intriguing, though the accents seem a little forced to me. Not sure if that's because I've not lived in London for so long.

Per the trailer, you’ll be able to recruit and play as any NPC in the game world, all in the name of building up a resistance force and freeing London from the grip of tyranny. Each character will have its own animation, voice over, and general traits, all of which will affect how you experience the game.

I didn't know I wanted to play a Shark RPG - the trailer is worth four minutes of your time

As for the RPG elements, your shark will "evolve" as you play, fighting humans and other undersea predators, and there'll be "rare shark loot" to find.

The games industry is experiencing a wave of consolidation, and it’s a cause for concern. I was more worried a few months ago when Epic Games bought Psyionix, makers of Rocket League, than I have been about any Epic Games store exclusive. Here’s why.

The world needs more of this:
Stardock and Star Control creators settle lawsuits—with mead and honey
A surprising—and surprisingly amicable—conclusion to the multi-year legal saga.

(...)

The Settlement of Now and Forever

Wardell jumped in then to explain that he and Reiche hammered out the details of the entire settlement in a conversation lasting a couple of hours. The collection of attorneys attached to the case then spent several weeks transforming the quick agreement into a formalized settlement offer. He and Reiche and Ford laughed when recounting the frantic attorneys' cries of "you can't do that!" and "you can't give that away!" They again made the point that the lawsuit process was creatively draining and too combative for the kind of compromise they were attempting to reach. Reiche interjected that the resulting settlement contract is the first contract he's ever signed that included specific language about bees and about how many jars of honey must be exchanged per month for flagons of mead.
