    The Next Battlefield 5 Chapter to be Revealed Tomorrow
    by Shawn Zipay
    We're still in the Pacific.

    EA and DICE announced today that they will reveal the sixth chapter in their ever ongoing Tides of War content for Battlefield V. This new chapter is appropriately called Into the Jungle and it takes us, you guessed it, into some dense jungle environments. Well, there's at least one dense jungle environment.

    There's no saying how many new maps this next chapter will actually bring, though certain wording in official statements seem to indicate...

    by Shawn Zipay
    A new feature here, a new character there.

    EVO Japan was large and in charge this past weekend. As is seemingly customary with these events, some new content was announced for existing games like Tekken 7 and even Soulcalibur VI.

    For Tekken 7, fans learned about some of what is coming in the 3.2 Game Update. Thanks to a new developer diary, we also see how the new new characters, Leroy Smith and Fahkumram, are coming along.

    In addition, we also learned a little...

    Season 2 DLC Roster Revealed for Samurai Shodown
    by Shawn Zipay
    This new season adds in four new fighters.

    Throughout February, four new fighters will be added to Samurai Shodown courtesy of the second season of DLC content. Yes, you will need to pay for these extra characters as that's usually how these things go.

    I wasn't told the price of this second season of DLC, but I'm assuming the new Season Pass will retail for $19.99 (USD) just as the first Season Pass retailed for. If you decide to purchase these new characters separately,...

    by Shawn Zipay
    The change away from the F2P model is only one of the many changes planned.

    Britain Finds An Unusual Way To Celebrate Its Gaming Heritage
    by Major 0

    When it comes to the creation of hugely successful video games, the United Kingdom arguably punches above its weight. It's a small country when compared to the size and population of the United States of America, but the video game designers there have given us some of the greatest computer games ever conceived, from the Championship Manager series through to Grand Theft Auto. It’s a history worth celebrating, and the country has decided to celebrate it in the most delightfully British...

    Speedrunners Continue to Break Ocarina of Time - Now Able to Spawn in an Arwing from Star Fox 64
    by Shawn Zipay
    This is done without outside cheat devices.

    Over the past several weeks, the speed running community has absolutely broken open The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The record for Ocarina of Time any% went from just shy of 17 minutes as of six months ago, to just 12 minutes and 3 seconds as of 4 days ago. To put it into perspective, it took the community over 4 years to get the old record to be under 17 minutes. It's taken them six months to get it to just 12 minutes. For a game ...

    A Rumor Suggests a Knights of the Old Republic Remake is in Development
    by Shawn Zipay
    It's a slow news day, so here's a rumor born from a single site.

    A new rumor was fired up yesterday from cinelinx.com that says a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is currently in the works. There might be a bit of validity behind this rumor, we aren't exactly sure ourselves. The track record of cinelinx is unknown to us, but it's a slow news day so let's roll with it.

    The site claims that two independent sources have told them that Knights of the Old R...

    Court Rules that Player's Free Speech Rights Weren't Violated After Being Banned From a Video Game
    by Shawn Zipay
    Imagine that, a gamer was dumb enough to argue about free speech rights.

    A federal court dismisses a case where an (alleged) moron complained about his free speech rights being violated in a video game. A Pennsylvania man actually tried to claim that his civil rights were violated after he was muted by the developers in an online video game.

    To interject briefly: Yes, there are indeed people that don't have a fucking clue what "freedom of speech" actually means....

    So far, all we've really seen for the upcoming Xbox have been some official CG renders and mockups from various sources. We also haven't gotten a good look at the back of the device, even in these officially released renders. Either Microsoft...

    Google is probably giving Microsoft some severe side-eyes today after the latest xCloud update. Today's update for beta users see the addition of over ten titles. These include Destiny 2 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The addition of Destiny 2 now provides a great chance for comparisons between Stadia and xCloud.

    They're probably just teasing more pachinko machines.

    Recently, the former video game developer Konami updated their key visual on their recruitment page. The new art showcases some really iconic characters from some of Konami's biggest and best franchises over the past 50 years.

    What jobs are they recruiting for? Beats me. I saw someone make the joke that they must be using this image to hire gravediggers and that gave me a sad chuckle. So let's just run with that....

    Ultra Instinct Goku is coming soon to the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. That's it. We have some art for him. There's no release date nor literally anything else to share. Such is the way with a lot of these announcements from Bandai Namco.

    I could look up some background information about the character, but I frankly do not care about this franchise enough, nor anime in general, to do that.

    Why Newbies Prefer Minimum Deposit Casinos
    by Major 0
    One of the most significant reservations most people in society have when it comes to gambling is the fact that it has substantial financial implications for the player. While this is true, a lot of factors go into the amount one spends in casinos. Time, games played, and the choice of the casino are some of the factors that inform the expenditure incurred by gamblers. With a low deposit casino, you can tame your spending with the help of policies designed for this specific reason. These casinos...

    As part of the lead up to the release of Half-Life: Alyx, Valve just made every game within the Half-Life Complete collection available for free. This freebie is for every single Steam user, but there is a small catch.

    The free period lasts from now through to April 1, 2020. That's still about two and a half months worth of play time that they're giving you, which is plenty of time to play Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode...
