Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III (2023) Review — Got That Familiar Feeling
Activision and Infinity Ward (along with the other core studios behind World at War and such) have been making Call of Duty a yearly outing for three console generations now. Typically, players would get to enjoy an Infinity War-developed modern title before alternating into whichever Treyarch or Sledgehammer Games have been working on. This year's entry changes the formula by bringing a direct follow-up to 2022's Modern Warfare II rather than giving a change of time period and focus.

Fortnite Players Upset With New Restrictions On Skins, Epic Responds
Yesterday, Fortnite players noticed that some of the skins in their locker had a new symbol on them — a triangle with a yellow outline and an exclamation mark inside — alongside a warning that said, "Items with the symbol can only be used in experiences rated 12+." Players were upset with the change, which arrived out of nowhere, as it made skins they previously used on various creative islands unusable on said islands due to the new age rating restriction.
