    We all kind of already knew what EA was up to with card packs in FIFA Ultimate Team but now an insider has leaked some internal documents that implicate EA in intentionally funneling FIFA players to FIFA Ultimate Team to spend real money.

    Of course, EA has denied the accusations and written them off as sensationalist journalism that’s misrepresenting the facts… but the leaked documents literally say, “All roads lead to FUT.”

    In other news, Neil Druckmann, creative director and writer at Naughty Dog has confirmed the existence of an outline and script for The Last of Us Part III. As for the studio’s parent company, Sony has stated that they plan to continue to heavily invest in internal AAA studios as well as partner with outside studios to make PlayStation exclusive content.

    The GameStop stock fiasco earlier this year may be a large contributor to the salvation of the failing retailer overall. GameStop’s board of investors just cached in a whole of stocks and plan to put the capital back into the company.

    Lastly, and probably the funniest headline all year, Google Stadia just got a search bar… you know, like to search for games. Okay, don’t make us explain it.

    The coming soon section heralds in Resident Evil Village and this week’s 5-Second Review is for New Pokemon Snap.

    Thanks for watching and have a great weekend.
