Another week, another round-up of the top gaming stories. Take a look at our favorite news stories from the last seven days.
My Friend Pedro & Fallout TV Series
We were treated with not one, but two announcements this week about video games being given The Witcher treatment and getting their own TV series. Although, one was definitely more of a surprise than the other. First, we have a Fallout TV series set to hit our screens in the future thanks to Amazon Studios and Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan.
Also announced this week was a My Friend Pedro TV show being helmed by John Wick writer Derek Kolstad. While we still have no idea what this will actually look like, it’s definitely got our attention.
Amazon Prime Day Delayed (Again)
This week’s event delay news came in the shape of Amazon Prime Day. For what will be the third time (so far), the online sales event has been pushed back to the placeholder date of October 5th. Don’t get too attached to this new date though, as it seems Amazon is preparing for further possible delays. This is, of course, all down to the production and stock issues the online retailer has been facing thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

There’s Now A Sims 4 Reality Show?!

This new show sees a group of contestants battle head to head to flex their creative muscles within the world of The Sims 4, all in the hopes of bagging the eventual cash prize.
