Tuesday news, part two:
G2A offered 10 outlets the chance to publish pre-written advertorials without disclosure
Indie Games Plus writer Thomas Faust posted an email from G2A on Twitter where a representative for the company asked the site to publish a pre-written article claiming that selling stolen keys was impossible. The representative said that the article conjured up by a key reseller with a significant investment in the subject was "unbiased". The real kicker, however, was the instruction that the post not be marked as sponsored.
Bungie is investigating why Destiny 2 won't run on Ryzen 3000 PCs
Several Destiny 2 players who upgraded to a Ryzen 3000 series CPU are reporting that the game will not load properly. It's not clear what is causing the hiccup, though the good news is that Bungie is aware of the problem and is looking into it.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's hero is human because non-humans might 'alienate' players
In an interview with Game Informer, game director Stig Asmussen said that Respawn actually talked about "doing an alien creature" in the early stages of development, but decided against it for fear of—wait for it—alienating potential players.
InXile boss Brian Fargo says the Wasteland series 'is our Fallout'
My eyes bugged a little bit when Microsoft announced its purchase of inXile Entertainment last year, because I really like what inXile does (and I'm really looking forward to Wasteland 3), and my mind immediately leapt to all the ways the acquisition could end badly.

Shortly after the deal was announced he called off his planned retirement, and in a recent interview with Wccftech he said he hopes to keep working on it for another ten years.
There's a new Turok game releasing this month, but it's not what you're expecting
Turok is a name synonymous with ultra-violent games about murdering dinosaurs with guns called the 'Cerebral Bore'. But did you know that the Turok games are (very loosely) based on comic books dating back to the 1950s? And more to the point, did you know that there's a new Turok game coming out later this month called Turok: Escape from Lost Valley? It's not a first-person shooter, it has a distinct lack of gore, and surprisingly: it's very, very cute.
Here's the first 13 minutes from Remedy's Control
Remedy's telekinesis 'em up Control is set to release on August 27, and above you can watch the opening 13 minutes courtesy of IGN. As you'd expect, given it's the first 13 minutes from the game, it's all about setting scene, so there's not a great deal of action. But it does show off Remedy Entertainment's typically impressive cinematics.
