Happy Saturday TA! Apologies to those of you looking for a poll yesterday. My family and I celebrated Thanksgiving a day later than the rest of the US, which I guess means today is my Black Friday! *spends liberally*
Last week's poll determined the last TA Playlist game of the year. The winner, overwhelmingly, was Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
. Join us in the TA Playlist Hub
for the year-ending game club starting on December 1st.
This week, we're looking back on the huge year for Microsoft's first-party efforts. At E3, they revealed four newly acquired studios as well as a fifth built from the ground up
. They weren't done there though, as at X018 just days ago, they also revealed two more acquisitions
in famed RPG development houses.
With seven new studios under their belt, all presumably building games for the next generation Xbox, the future looks very bright, but in your opinion, which studio burns the brightest? Sound off in this week's poll!
