Remember when the Dance Dance Revolution film was announced back in October? Did you think it couldn't get any weirder? Apparently it can, as plans are now in place for a Just Dance movie adaptation. I guess Hollywood's superhero well is finally starting to dry up.
Featuring guest appearances from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, John Romero and Jim Sterling.
Wooby-tide those who enter.
What's more viral than a viral dance move? Word that you can sue Epic over emotes, apparently, as yet another lawsuit has been filed against the developer - this time by the mother of the Orange Shirt Kid. Yet unlike its predecessors, the plaintiff gave permission for his dance to be used in the game, making this case rather odd.
EA is preparing to roll out another major update for Battlefield 5 - and contrary to popular opinion, it seems lightning can indeed strike twice, as this is the name for the second chapter of the game's continually-evolving story. (Lightning Strikes? Chapter 2? Sigh.)
Here's something wholesome to brighten up your Monday: this year's Awesome Games Done Quick - an annual charity speedrunning marathon - has raised a total of $2.39m for charity. See, it's not all doom and gloom in the world.
Bethesda seems to have something of a war on its hands over Fallout 76's most powerful items. After several weeks of problems with players creating copies of items through duplication glitches, some have now figured out how to access a secret "developer room" in Fallout 76.
The next Fallout 76 patch is here - and boy is it chunky one. Patch 126.96.36.199 takes aim at many of the game's most unpopular bugs, with over 150 changes being made to the game.
We've become pretty used to hearing about major ban waves from PUBG, and it seems even professional players are getting caught out, as PUBG Corp has punished a further 12 pros for either cheating or allowing their teammates to cheat.
A couple of days ago, eagle-eyed internet users managed to spot a suspicious new Square Enix trademark which appeared to hint at a brand new Final Fantasy game. Of sorts.
Hey! You there! That's right, you - there's free stuff coming your way if you play Dirty Bomb after Tuesday 15th January. The catch is active development will be ending along with this.
Despite initially being planned for release in 2018, it seems Gang Beasts for Xbox is still wrestling with a few problems, as the port has been delayed a second time.
All good things must come to an end, even Orcs Must Die! Unchained, as developer Robot Entertainment has announced the title - along with games Hero Academy and Hero Academy 2 - will close in a few months.

It's the holy grail of indie titles, and now it's looking to broaden its horizons beyond PC gaming. Humble is placing Nintendo Switch and 3DS games on its digital store shelves - but, as with all good things, there's a catch. For now, it's US-only. Sorry everyone else in the world.
It's making a list, it's checking it twice - Valve's figuring out who's naughty or nice. And it seems to be working, as the company cleared out over 600,000 misbehaving Steam players in December.
What could cost you Ł36,000 and up to five years prison time? Why, modding a console game in Japan, of course!
When I first scrolled through my Twitter feed and spied the Bowsette hashtag, I had no idea of what was to follow. What I believed to be a niche deviantart trend quickly evolved into something of a monster - kind of like Peach, really. But perhaps the most amazing thing about the phenomenon was that despite the internet's belief it was undermining Nintendo's family image, it turns out Nintendo had beaten Twitter to it all along.
Fortnite players thought they were finally free of the game's overpowered Infinity Blade when it was removed three days ago - but they were wrong. Despite being encased in an ice block, the sword's mystical powers live on.
We already knew it was doing well from the UK figures released last week, but it seems Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's success knows no bounds.
Remember Soulja Boy? It's a name I haven't heard since my year seven disco about 11 years ago, but lately the rapper (responsible for hit single Crank That) has been making waves in the gaming world with a series of bizarre entrepreneurial ideas.
We've had a couple of major u-turns in the last few weeks: first it was Epic's faux-pas with a fancy (but very overpowered) sword, and now it's all about Battlefield 5, as DICE has reversed its unpopular TTK (Time to Kill) balance change introduced to the game last week.
If you've been anywhere near social media over the last few days, you're likely to have seen PlayStation users freaking out over the obscene number of hours they've ploughed into Destiny (or is that just my colleagues?). The reason for this is Sony has allowed players to create personalised videos showing gaming highlights from the past five years - like the Facebook ones your Mum tags you in, minus the embarrassing photos.
UPDATE 15/12/18: Epic has now released an official statement to clarify why it sent a cease and desist letter to the owner of Fortnite leak outlet FNBRLeaks.
Metro Exodus comes out a week earlier than announced, on 15th February 2019, to be precise.
UPDATE 12/12/18: It looks like Ashen's PC multiplayer woes are over, as A44 Games has announced the issues plaguing the game since launch have now been fixed.
It's been about 24 hours since Epic introduced the latest change to the ever-evolving Fortnite - and in that short amount of time, it has managed to pretty much unite the game's community, although perhaps not in the way you'd think.
