You never know what to expect in the gaming world and this week is proof of that.
Final Fantasy 14 shocked fans by announcing that they would soon be saying ta-ta on your belt. And while FF14 was saying goodbye, Fall Guys was saying hello to a world record. References to the Beatles aside, Nintendo was here, there and everywhere in the news this week – including confirming rumors about the nostalgic release of the N64 and Sega games on Nintendo Direct. We also got our first view of the Nintendo Switch OLED in the wild, as well as a clip surfacing that featured a beheading variety issue in the bug-filled free MOBA Pokemon Unite.
Here’s the biggest gaming news from Sunday, September 19 through today, September 25.
Pokemon Unite Bug Beheads Squirtle
More like Pokemon Ununited, one player recently noticed that a bug was causing Squirtle – the adorable water-type Pokemon to go crazy. A video of the strange bug was recently posted on Reddit. The beheading seems to happen when Squirtle evolves into Wartortle – something we never got to see in the anime. Thanks, Ash! While this may be the most gruesome bug seen in Pokemon Unite, it certainly isn’t the first. Fans have been complaining about bugs and glitches since its release, including one where the entire map seems to disappear. The strange glitch also kept them from scoring goals.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout recently made history. Multiplayer battle royale was recently recognized as the most downloaded PS Plus game of all time and set a Guinness World Record. The landmark announcement was made via the official Fall Guys Twitter account.
