Pokémon GO Uses "Update," Stormy Skies Settle on Final Fantasy XIV, and the Rest of This Week's Headlines

ENDING CREDITS | Taking a look a back at this week's headlines and everything else you might have missed on USgamer.

Whew. We had a bit of a subdued week, but that's OK. I'm still kind of sleepy from the E3 gauntlet, and something tells me I'm not the only one.

There's no such thing as an eventless week in the games industry, through. For one thing, Pokémon GO received a huge update, just in time for summer. Raids against huge Pokémon are a thing, and Gyms have been overhauled. I'm especially happy about Gyms being refurbished; it makes the game a lot more fun For a full breakdown of what's new, take a look at our Pokémon GO update guide.

Other news, views, and reviews worth taking note of this week:

Today's ending theme is the credits roll from Super Mario 64. I feel like in our rush to praise game music composers like Nobuo Uematsu (not that he doesn't deserve it), long-time Mario composer Koji Kondo just kind of exists at the edge of our memories even though he's written themes that are instantaneously recognizable throughout the world.

Mario 64's soundtrack is fantastic on its own, and its jaunty ending theme is one of my all-time favorites. That's high praise for a setlist that existed on cartridge during a time when Final Fantasy VII and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was filling my ears.
