The Daily Moot (11/23/18)
1. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu Sets Sales Record on Switch
In just one week since their release, Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee have sold over 3 million copies combined. This makes them the fastest selling games ever on the Switch, even beating out The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Although Let’s Go Pikachu has been fairly controversial and polarizing among longtime Pokemon fans, it’s clear that this mixed reception hasn’t negatively impacted sales. The holiday season is just beginning, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the sales continue to climb for the latest Pokemon games.
2. Playstation 5 Backwards Compatible? After Playstation announced that they will be skipping E3, everybody’s been anxious to hear something about the Playstation 5. Well it seems like we might have some good news. Although nothing is set in stone yet, Playstation filed for patents that suggest the PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS4 games. This will be great news for Playstation fans if the rumors are true.
3. Get Outcast: Second Contact for Free Until Tomorrow Outcast: Second Contact is Free on Humble Bundle until November 24th.

The deal is linked below.
4. The Chicken Trooper is Now a Real Skin The Chicken Trooper which was originally the brainchild of an 8 year-old boy named Connor, is now a real Fortnite skin called the Tender Defender. Connor’s drawing of his Chicken Trooper was posted on Reddit by his father, who asked Fortnite to make it into a real skin. Just 2 months later and the Tender Defender was born. It's pretty cool to see Epic Games engaging their community like this. The Tender Defender is available in the Fortnite item shop for 1500 V-Bucks.
