After NVIDIA’s streaming game service made a splashy entrance a few weeks ago, the news has been dominated by games, developers, and publishers abruptly pulling out of the service.

The BBC announced that it’s bringing Doctor Who to Roblox. For a limited time, you’ll be able to pick up the 10th and 13th Doctor as avatars, along with a portable Tardis and a Pterrible Pting for free.

It’s been expected for some time, and Ars Technica is confirming it: E3 is cancelled.

On any list of the best PS4 exclusives, Horizon Zero Dawn should be at or at least near the top. It’s an open-world RPG that set in a post-apocalyptic world different than the usual take.
