Big news broke this week, but probably not the kind of news some people were expecting. Nintendo was finally on the side of the scumbags this week, as they were linked to the child labor Foxconn scandal involving Wii U production, prompting for a very quick response about launching an investigation. CD Projekt officially named their cyber-punk RPG Cyberpunk 2077 and let loose some new details. News Corp is officially auctioning off IGN Entertainment and Halo 4 in its 16GB entirety has been leaked ahead of launch, complete with ending spoilers. These stories and more in this edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap here at Electronic Theatre.
