Sunday was pretty quiet today, although we got a few updates on some great previous stories. There’s a lot of variety too, with the news taking us from Halo titles from the Xbox 360 era, right through to an update on Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed. Oh, and we even have a story on this gamer skincare line that sounds very pseudo-scientific. Really, we have something for everyone today.
Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed skips the last generation to have a “bigger and better world”
Bad news for those of you who stick with the PS4 and Xbox One a bit longer – you’ll miss the highly anticipated Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed. We already knew that, but in an interview, the developers shed some light on the decision. Deputy Creative Director Stefan Schmitz has revealed that this is aimed at avoiding “weaker visuals” and promises that the sequel will be “a big step forward” for the series. He said that on the current generation they can hold five times as many items in a level, so that looks a lot like an improvement.

Valkyrae Thought The Gamer RFLCT Skincare Line Would Be “Revolutionary”
Finally, we have an update on yesterday’s crazy story on this gamer skin care product line. After being questioned by fans and other content creators, YouTube streamer Valkyrae spoke at length about the entire RFLCT debacle – but was admittedly a bit contradictory. While she said she believed in the product and its claims – even going so far as to say that she thought it would be “revolutionary” – she admitted that she no longer wanted to be involved. However, as she herself admits, this is probably not possible as she is under contract.
