The FFVII Remake adds a "classic" mode
The action orientated gameplay of the Final Fantasy VII remake rubbed many fans, myself included, the wrong way. In order to appease these fans Square has added a "classic" mode to the game. In the normal mode, your ATB gauge fills up as you attack the enemies. Once the ATB bar is full you can unleash special attacks and magic abilities. The "classic" mode automates the attacking for you, filling the ATB gauge without you needing to do anything, then allowing special move and magic ability input when the gauge is filled. This almost seems worse than the normal mode in my opinion and I don't think fans wanting the true classic turn based experience will be appeased by this mode.

KFC is releasing a dating game
On September 24th, I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator will release on to Steam. While many are laughing at the absurdity that is a KFC dating game, I see it as a win for the dating sim community. Dating sims are often considered a niche market geared toward adults, a KFC dating game could thrust the genre into the mainstream and open up the possibility for more teen and PG styles of dating sims.

Death Stranding will feature product placement
Hideo Kojima is no stranger to blatant product placement in his games and Death Stranding will be no different. From the J.F. Rey glasses and Acronym clothes the protagonist wears to the Monster energy drinks he consumes to restore stamina to the Ride with Norman Reedus vehicle he drives, the game will be in your face with its product placement.
