In March, a big leak purported to reveal a significant number of features planned for Genshin Impact's upcoming 1.5 update. Developer MiHoYo was not pleased, asking players to avoid the leaks and warning that it would "increase its efforts to deal with illegal disclosures," but it did not deny their accuracy, and a new (and official) trailer released today confirms that much of it was on the money.

What seemed unimaginable just over one year ago - Diamond Comic Distributors losing its 25+ year near-monopoly on the means of comic book distribution to independent comic book shops (otherwise known as the Direct Market) - has taken another big turn. Less than a year after DC ended its relationship with Diamond , on March 25 Marvel Comics announced the same - signing a worldwide agreement with book distribution giant Penguin Random House to be its exclusive Direct Market distributor . Diamond's distribution apparatus won't be shuttering. Diamond still serves other publishers , some exclusively, And it can still act as a wholesaler to comic book retailers who choose to get their Marvel comic books through Diamond, who'd now be getting product through Penguin Random House (PRH) rather than Marvel directly. And Diamond does seem intent on staying in the Marvel game . But when Marvel and DC were both under the Diamond umbrella, the two publishers made up between what was … [Read more...] about How Marvel leaving Diamond for Penguin Random House affects comic book readers
