EVE Online is infamous for its scammers, pirates, and ne'er-do-wells, but this week all their scams were put to shame. A member of the game's Council of Stellar Management and head diplomat of the Circle of Two alliance named The Judge stole all of the holdings of the 4,000-person alliance for himself.

He took their money, took their ships, and sold their Death Star-esque space citadel to their most hated enemies.

Today, gamers are blessed with a wealth of choices when it comes to buying games. There's storefronts for new games, old games, indie games, imported games. Choice is everywhere.

But that wasn't always the case. At the turn of the millennium, if you couldn't find a game in a local retailer, it basically didn't exist. So if a game went off sale, or you lived in a rural area, or it simply wasn't popular, then you were out of luck.

And that's where abandonware came in - and one of the biggest and most important sites around was Home of the Underdogs.

"This needs to be, first and foremost, a good bar."

Out of everything I spoke to Lachlan McAllister and Jamie Skella, two of the founders behind the GGEZ esports bar (short for Good Game Easy) opening in Melbourne this week, that stuck with me the most.

Being Australia's first esports bar is important. But not as important as being a good bar.

Coming in September for consoles and October for PC, Destiny 2 is the sequel to Bungie's multiplatform, life-eating, scifi video game. As sometimes happens, it's being heralded with a splashy teaser starring actually living, breathing human beings. This one was helmed by ascendant Hollywood talent Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director behind Kong: Skull Island, and it's pretty great.

In what will probably be the first and last time I'm excited for anything involving Rabbids, the biggest release this week is comfortably the unusual cross-over between Mario and Ubisoft.

But the list of big hitters doesn't stop there: the first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm drops this week, ARK: Survival Evolved comes out of Early Access, and RedOut gets a well-deserved console release. It's a big week in games, people.
