Subscribe To Weekly Recap Sept 21st: Diablo 3 RMAH Shutting Down, GTA Online Details, TGS 2013 Updates
So we managed to get our hands on GTA V's assets and rummage through the files for details on the upcoming GTA Online mode, revealing some missions, options and features of the mode. Some of that stuff is trippy. Blizzard has announced that they will finally shut down the former bane of my existence: the Real-Money Auction House.

The only downside is for the people who made a living out of flipping items on the RMAH... sorry, you've got to get a real job now. Also, we have up trailers and media from this year's Tokyo Game Show. These stories and more in this September 21st, 2013 edition of the Weekly Recap.
