Star Citizen’s Squadron 42 Story Campaign Has Been Delayed (again) Into Next Year - http://www.gamespot.com/articles/star-citizens-single-player-game-squadron-42-delay/1100-6444340/
Squadron 42, the standalone single-player game spinoff of Star Citizen, will not be out this year as previously planned.
A delay for the game--which was originally set to be a mode within Star Citizen before being spun off on its own--was announced at the recent CitizenCon 2016 fan event. Creator Chris Roberts described Squadron 42 as having "significantly grown from when it was first pitched in 2012." He laid out the scope of the project and its story and talked about what still needs to be done. Despite what had been said previously, developer Cloud Imperium Games wasn't ready to show off a mission, which he acknowledged as a "bit of a bummer."

Steam To Add Full Support For PlayStation 4 Controllers In Coming Update - http://nichegamer.com/2016/10/13/steam-add-full-support-playstation-4-controllers-coming-update/
Valve has announced that the PS4 DualShock 4 controller will soon be fully supported through Steam thanks to an update that’s on the way.
The update in question will let players map the controller to their liking, including the DualShock 4’s touchpad and gyro abilities. At this point in time, as a reminder, some Steam games do have limited support for DualShock 4 controllers, but they are far from ‘full’ support – several games still require using a third-party program, and even fewer let you customize the controller, let alone use the touchpad and gyro capabilities of the controller. With this new update, Steam will support the controller for all games.
Other controllers were also mentioned to be receiving support down the line, but the DualShock 4 is the first to get the support – mostly due to the similarities in functionality to the Steam Controller.

For a pure Hollywood action movie, there have been few better in recent times than John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves. The movie is getting a sequel, with John Wick: Chapter 2 arriving in cinemas early next year, and to which a trailer was released over the weekend. But it seems as though plans are afoot already for a third film.
Director Chad Stahelski confirmed this to Collider, saying that “the studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something”. He added that Ian McShane’s character, Winston, “is a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick. We’ve got some ideas”.
