It’s Monday; time for an extra large, E3-laden reset. Here’s the best stuff from around the web in the last week of video games.

E3 WEEK WAS CRAZY, BUT WE ALL SEEM TO HAVE MADE IT THROUGH IN ONE PIECE…

THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE GOT IT’S RELEASE DATE CONFIRMED… Jason Schrier interviews developer Jason Schroeder about why a South Park game would take so long, despite it’s spectacularly crappy style. via Kotaku

ON THE REVERSE END OF THE GRAPHICAL SPECTRUM… the pixel-counting gurus over at Digital Foundry take a close look at Anthem’s E3 demo to find out if it’s really running on Xbox One X hardware. via Eurogamer

THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING CONTINUES OVER AT WAYPOINT… Patrick Klepek tries to figure out if this old, decidedly-NSFW meme somehow made it into a game on accident. via Waypoint Vice

THE TRUTH IS, SOMETIMES GAMES DON’T COME OUT THE WAY YOU WANT… Jason Schrier again has a deep dive on the rocky development of April’s lambasted Mass Effect Andromeda. via Kotaku

AND NOW WE WAIT FOR THE SUMMER GAMES… I fully expect N’Sane Trilogy and Sonic Mania to have Aston and I like:
