    Reply to Half-Life: Alyx Mod Takes Us to BioShock's Rapture

    Sometimes, yes. I think about if any of the people on r/GlobalOffensive know about CSN or if they're too young to even have heard about it. I will never not be massively pissed off about that domain situation.

    A Celebration of the Jak and Daxter Series
    by Major 0

    Long before Californian developers Naughty Dog broke new ground with modern classics The Last of Us and The Last of Us 2, they brought gamers a distinctly unique series that has gone on to become a cult classic and a fond memory for a certain generation of PlayStation fans. Unlike The Last of Us’ grittily realistic post-apocalyptic world and cinematic storyline that rivals the best movies, in the 2000s Naughty Dog were bringing us a colorful fantasy world that was—almost —pure escapism....

    Half-Life: Alyx Mod Takes Us to BioShock's Rapture
    by Shawn Zipay
    There's always a lighthouse.

    A new mod for Half-Life: Alyx was brought to light today courtesy of UploadVR. This mod, from developer wim.buytaert.1988, combines together Half-Life: Alyx with BioShock. The core idea here is that Alyx "crash-lands" in the underwater world of Rapture.

    This is accomplished by using repurposed assets from Half-Life: Alyx in combination with new assets based on locations within BioShock itself. It's not a 1 to 1 recreation of BioShock,...

    Amnesia: Rebirth is Out Now
    by Shawn Zipay
    Available now on PS4 and PC.

    Frictional Games released Amnesia: Rebirth today on the PC and PlayStation 4. This is a game that we have already covered extensively in the previous weeks and months, so I'll spare you those details and get right into the press release portion.

    I will make a note here to say that this game is NOT a remake or a remaster of the first Amnesia game. People seem to believe that it is just because the title has "Re-" in it somewhere. This is an entirely new Amnesia title from the studio that made Amnesia: The Dark Descent. ...

    by Shawn Zipay
    Play as a couple of iconic horror movie villains in the new Warzone event.

    If you thought that Call of Duty: Warzone would be a safe reprieve from the spooks and scares that come with the Halloween season, you would be wrong. You would be dead wrong. Call of Duty: Warzone has a special "Haunting of Verdansk" that stars Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. Not only are these two now stalking the battlefield for their next victim,...

    Fallout 4: New Vegas Fan Mod is Looking Fantastic
    by Shawn Zipay
    Happy birthday, New Vegas.

    Ten years ago on October 19, 2010, a little game called Fallout: New Vegas was released and damn was it a hell of a lot of fun. It was praised largely for its unique gameplay elements that it brought to the franchise. It was also praised for its phenomenal writing complete with branching narrative elements that actually mattered to the overall story.

    It was still a bit rough around the edges, as it had the combined bugs from being both an Obsidian...

    Reply to Next-gen Release of Marvel's Avengers Delayed
    by cikame
    Only thing to add to this news is that Crystal Dynamics are based in Redwood City, California, so on top of many or most of the devs working from home they're also having to survive wildfires.
    Not defending the game, i still haven't played it, it's a "check it out when it's cheap" kinda game maybe rope some friends in if the servers are still up, but the devs have got it rough.
