Heavy Rain Developer Quantic Dream is Working on a New Star Wars Game, Allegedly

It’s always good news to hear about a new Star Wars game, at least for those who care about the franchise in the first place. It used to be that we got a new Star Wars game every year, but that was a long time ago. However, it seems that the old trend may be coming back. Granted, what we are about to talk about here is just a rumor, but still...

Best High-Quality, Cheap Gaming Keyboards to Take Your Gaming to the Next Level

Gaming computers: often touted as the superior way to play video games, bar none. There’s no denying that a computer designed for gaming can achieve better graphics, framerates, control and responsiveness than any other gaming platform. But despite all of these noteworthy advantages, there is one major drawback to a gaming PC compared to a console of any other nature: there’s a lot more required to help it reach its full potential.

Best Gaming Headsets – Wired, Wireless, with Mic and More

Gaming: the longer it exists, the more hardware you need to fully enjoy it and everything it has to offer. You need consoles, the games themselves, controllers, charging stations, and of course, headphones. There’s no game that sounds better without headphones than it does with them, so finding a pair with awesome audio fidelity is something nearly every gamer wants to do at some point, mostly when they’re willing to splurge a little bit.

Twitch Viewership Suffers a Decline Due to the #ADayOffTwitch Campaign

On September 1st, many popular Twitch streamers refused to go live in order to protest the troublesome and derogatory hate raids that have been happening on their platform of choice. A raid on Twitch is typically started when a streamer ends their own stream, but brings their viewers to another creator's stream to show support. Normally, this is a positive way to spread viewership and introduces viewers to new content they might enjoy. Hate raids are the exact opposite, with the intent to target marginalized creators with bots and plenty of real people. Such hate raids are often full of slander, insults, and all sorts of other nasty things...

First Free DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 is Small and Purely Cosmetic – What’s Next?

The first batch of free DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 has been recently unveiled, but unfortunately, it’s not quite as impressive as many players were hoping for. It was during a live Twitch Stream that employees from the developer gave everyone a breakdown of the new content the DLC brought to the table, as well as the contents of Patch 1.3...

Company Of Heroes 3 Is On the Way – Review And What To Expect

Company of Heroes is a storied and respected franchise of strategy war games beloved by many. Most of the people reading this review are probably well aware of how it basically goes, thanks to experience with one of the prior games. For good or for ill, much of the gameplay you’ll find in Company of Heroes 3 is exactly what you’d expect based on experience with those previous games...

What’s Known About FIFA 22 Right Now: Release Date, Next Gen Upgrade, and More

The time has come: EA Sports has officially announced FIFA 22, and they’ve provided us with a fair number of details, including who will be on the cover of the game, next gen exclusive features, how to upgrade to a next generation version, and what is new to the series overall. Of special mention is the “Dual Entitlement” edition, which will allow you to get the game on both Xbox and PlayStation if you get the $100 Ultimate edition. More details on that later...

Teasers for PUBG New State Have Revealed a Host of New Features, Including Weapon...

The futuristic brother game to PUBG Mobile, called PUBG New State, has received a trailer and two videos, called Field Trip to Troi, episode one and two. These releases have finally given expectant players some insights and introduction to the game’s maps and features. The first thing to be released was the teaser video, which gives players a peek at the new setting for PUBG New State, the futuristic city of Troi, though it has certainly seen better days. Much like the way PUBG started out, Troi appears to be the only map in the game thus far, and it has a size of 8×8. The trailer gave players a look at several areas on the map, namely the mall, the laboratory, the exhibit hall, and the trailer park.

NieR Automata Finally Gets the Steam Patch it Has Needed for the Past Four...

NieR Automata is still a phenomenal game with people singing its praises around the whole world. With how much love and attention the game has received from fans, one would think that any issues, like bugs or glitches, would be addressed fairly quickly. Well, that’s just not the case, at least not for the Steam version of the game. The PC version of NieR Automata has had issues with framerate and video issues for roughly four years, which is pretty crazy...

Netflix Hires Former EA and Zynga Executive in Pursuit of a Video Game Offering...

This is about as weird as it sounds: according to reports from Bloomberg, Netflix is laying the groundwork to get into the video game industry. This has raised a lot of questions and uncertainties, though it’s worth noting that the only things that exist right now are plans, and those are subject to change. What we know right now is that Netflix has hired Mike Verdu, a former EA and Zynga executive as their vice president of game development. According to the report, "The idea is to offer video games on Netflix's streaming platform within the next year” and "The company doesn't currently plan to charge extra for the content.”...

Doom Eternal Switches Gears on Planned Invasion Mode, and Focuses on Horde Mode Instead

Id Software, the developer behind critically acclaimed Doom Eternal, has recently revealed that a game mode they had planned for the game, called Invasion Mode, has been canceled. This post-launch mode was apparently going to allow players to enter the games of other players and control demons within them. Anyone who has played Dark Souls is familiar with the idea of invading another player’s world and giving them grief. The idea was interesting, but it is now being replaced with a single-player horde mode. Unfortunately, the Invasion mode was deemed too ambitious, considering the strife many development studios and console companies are still facing due to COVID...

EA Claims That Reports Regarding In-Game Ads on Their Console Titles are False

Thanks to a number of bad decisions made by Electronic Arts in the past few years, their reputation isn’t exactly the best. Despite owning a number of game franchises that are greatly beloved, EA has a tendency to shoehorn something in that harms the experience: usually, something to do with money. Many still remember the loot box crises of Battlefront II and Halo Infinite. However, even EA wouldn’t go so far as to literally put ads in their games, right? Or would they really force you to watch an ad between Battlefield matches, a la YouTube? Well, some concerns have arisen regarding this matter, following a report from Axios that stated that Simulmedia, the makers of the in-game ad platform known as PlayerWON, signed a deal with EA for exactly that: in-game ads...

The Distant Assassin’s Creed: Infinity – What We Currently Known About

Assassin’s Creed was, for a time, a lot like Call of Duty, in the sense that you could expect a new entry in the series roughly every year. Oddly enough, it’s actually been a relatively long time since the last Assassin’s Creed game. Now though, it seems that Ubisoft may be working on biggest, most ambitious entry in the series, one that promises to be “a massive online platform that evolves over time.” Don’t get your hopes up too early though, as this foretold entry is still years away at best.

New Nintendo Switch Model, Designated OLED, Coming Soon

Nintendo recently announced that they will be releasing the Nintendo Switch OLED model, a new version of the Switch we all know and love. This new hardware revision will include a larger screen, an ethernet port, 64 gigabits of storage, and improved audio performance. The launch date for this new OLED Switch is set for October 8th which is also the release date for Metroid: Dread. Unfortunately, there is no evidence that there will be a Metroid-themed model, but that also doesn’t mean it isn’t a possibility...

Everything Currently Known About Fable 4

It’s been a very long time in gaming terms since Fable 3 came out. Since then, the popular series from Lionsgate has pretty much faded away. The franchise didn’t even get an entry on the Xbox One, and it’s been more than ten years since Fable 3: practically an eternity in this field. But now, the Fable franchise is finally looking at a rebirth on the Xbox Series X|S. Of course, we’ve actually known that for a little while, since Microsoft gave us a reveal trailer for a new Fable game back in their 2020 showcase. Oddly enough though, information about the new Fable game has been especially vague since then...

How to Register for the Halo Infinite Beta

With E3, players finally managed to get a bit more insight into the upcoming next entry in the immensely popular and famous Halo franchise, Halo Infinite. The year-long delay from its initial release date was a heavy blow for many fans, admittedly, 2021 is a good year for the release, being the 20th anniversary of both Halo and even the Xbox brand. But more important than any of that is the fact that there’s a beta coming up for Infinite this summer prior to its full release, and there is of course a way for prospective players to get into it. According to the developers, it should be a fairly easy matter to sign up for this beta, though it’ll be even easier if we talk about how to get in.

Netflix and CD Projekt Red Have Revealed the WitcherCon Schedule

On July 9, we will be getting the first-ever all virtual Witcher event, and while it is still some ways off, Netflix has gone ahead and provided expectant fans with a breakdown of sorts regarding the virtual show’s schedule. WitcherCon will be streaming on both YouTube and Twitch via Netflix’s channels at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, to be hosted by television presenter Julia Hardy...

New E3 Details About Rainbow Six Extraction, Including a Release Date

Rainbow Six, arguably one of the most successful of Tom Clancy’s many properties, has had many iterations over the years. However, there’s no doubting that Rainbow Six Siege is the most popular and successful of those iterations, heavily focusing on character-centric team-dependent multiplayer in a series that had previously possessed far more single-player content. Lots of people really like Siege, in no small part due to the many unique Operators it has to offer. But a lot of people also wanted to see some of those characters in actual stories, in gameplay that wasn’t purely competitive multiplayer. Ubisoft apparently got the memo, perhaps due to that successful co-op Outbreak event a few years back, and now Rainbow Six Extraction is on its way...

Changes to Twitch Subscription Prices are Coming For a Majority of Countries Relatively Soon

It goes without saying that the value of money varies from country to country. This can be a problem when it comes to international subscription services that are trying to make universal prices for all of the countries they offer their services to. One such business is Twitch, the Amazon-owned streaming service. That’s why Twitch will soon be making a varied series of subscription pricing changes for countries outside of the United States.

For a Limited Time, Little Nightmares and Company of Heroes 2 are Free on...

Nothing beats free, but more importantly, nothing beats free games: especially if they are of a good variety! The good news is that two games are available for download on PC for anyone and everyone to keep permanently. Those two games are Little Nightmares and Company of Heroes 2. For some reason, there are no concrete dates on exactly how long one of these free games will be available, so it would be a good idea to pick it up as soon as possible if you are interested.
