Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, the upcoming game from the two-man dev team responsible for Astebreed, was originally supposed to be out this winter in Japan. The release date has been pushed back to 2020. Its US release date is TBA.

Look, the headline is purely snark and grocery shopping frustration, but you raise a good point. According to the CDC, food-borne illness has increased. But I also think awareness and connectivity (social media, etc.) are a factor in connecting the dots to identify an outbreak.

Yeah I have no idea why it’s so opaque - the process is basically “someone on the staff happens to see your comment and think to un-grey you.” Given that we’re understaffed and reporting/writing/playing games/editing all day, none of us actually have the desire or bandwidth to spend much time looking for commenters to Read more

Our parent company is a mess and the comments barely even work these days, so I’ve been checking them less (which is a bummer, because I love engaging with Kotaku readers) - you’re ungreyed now if it helps!

I like to think that one of the cool things about Kotaku is that you can come here for more information than you’ll get from a publisher’s press release. This is a good example of that. It’s not necessarily controversial or explosive info — it’s just context that you won’t find anywhere else.

They did make changes to BO4. You can save and use the reserve cases as currency to unlock items you don’t always have. Feels too late for many, but still a better way to get the guns and skins people missed out on before. Doubt they’ll give a revamped pass.
