Welcome to your rundown of the week’s gaming news. Brace yourselves this week was a dumb one.

September 23 - Gamespot reported that several VR developers either dropped Oculus support for their games or made donations to the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign.

September 23 - Blizzard announced that the company will be doing away with the Battle.net name for their gaming services. The company will instead provide the same services under the Blizzard name.

Weeks like this are why we can’t have nice things.
