    Wild Hearts is a New Hunting Game from EA and Koei Tecmo
    by Shawn Zipay
    You will be hunting some very big game.

    We finally have some more details on that "hunting game" that EA and Koei Tecmo pre-announced earlier this month. Wild Hearts is being billed as "the first AAA hunting experience for a new generation." It's apparently rather far along in development already as the release date is set for February 17, 2023 and will be out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and on PC through Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.

    Skull and Bones is Delayed Again
    by Shawn Zipay
    Stop me if you've heard this one before.

    Ubisoft just announced that Skull and Bones has been delayed. Yes, again. Despite recently receiving an ESRB rating and despite a recent release date announcement, the game has been pushed back into 2023.

    The firm* release date is now March 9, 2023. The reason given is the usual statement about how the team is hard at work polishing and balancing the game ahead of launch and wouldn't you know it? They just need some more time....

    Intel Announces October Launch for 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs
    by Shawn Zipay
    The announcement comes just a day after AMD released their new processors.

    During their Intel Vision Event, Intel announced that their 13th Gen "Raptor Lake" CPUs will be released starting on October 20, 2022. Much like 2021's Alder Lake (12th Gen), Raptor Lake will again utilize a blend of performance (P-Cores) and efficiency (E-Cores) cores. Raptor Lake will make use of the new Z790 chipset, but it seems as though those with Z690 boards will still be fine to upgrade....

    by Shawn Zipay
    Battlefield veterans showcase their new game that is full of destruction.

    The Finals is an upcoming free-to-play game in development by Embark Studios. This is the same studio made up of some former Battlefield series veterans that are also working on another free-to-play shooter called Arc Raiders. While Arc Raiders is far more of a sci-fi co-op style title, The Finals is more over the top extraction-focused competitive multiplayer action.

    The basic premise behind The...

    I know it's more complicated than this, but the idea of suing for damages because people were able to play your game is funny.

    Atlus is Suing Fans for Reviving a Long Dead MMO
    by Shawn Zipay
    Game preservation be damned.

    At least two fans of the long-dead MMO Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine are being sued by Atlus over copyright infringement. As first spotted by MarshSMT on Twitter, the fans that were trying to revive the MMO that Atlus shut down back in May 2016. A revived fan server first went live in late 2020 by people going by the online handles of Rekuiemu Games and COMP_Hack.

    Silent Hill: The Short Message Rated in Korea
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get your hopes up. Go on, do it!

    It looks like a new Silent Hill game is coming! Maybe? Something called Silent Hill: The Short Message was recently given a rating in South Korea.

    The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea gave a rating (via Gematsu) to this still unannounced Silent Hill project. The publisher is listed as UNIANA, which apparently is a regular publisher for Konami's titles in Korea.

    That's really all we know right now about this...

    Overwatch 2 Framerate Cap Upped to 600 FPS
    by Shawn Zipay
    This is all due to the power of the upcoming RTX 4090.

    When Overwatch 2 comes out, you will be able to run it at 600 FPS if you want (and can). This is apparently thanks to Nvidia teaming up with Blizzard on Nvidia Reflex support for Overwatch 2, which subsequently allowed the studios to increase the cap. The two companies are taking that slow and pathetic 400 FPS cap from the first Overwatch and cranking it up another 200 FPS.

    Nvidia confirmed that framerates of over...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Sees Massive Player Surge
    by Shawn Zipay
    The surge can probably be most attributed to the new anime.

    Cyberpunk 2077 came out at the tail end of 2020. It was met with some less than favorable reviews from critics and even worse reviews by fans. It was buggy and a lot of the mechanics simply felt incomplete. Plus, the less said about the last-gen release the better. CD Projekt Red has been working on bringing the game up to snuff in the months since and it seems like their efforts are finally starting to pay off for some....

    Offensive Messages Sent in Children's MMO Not from Disgruntled Employee
    by Shawn Zipay
    The messages were coming from outside the building!

    Last week, the typically kid friendly MMO called Wizard101 turned into a real minefield of vulgar server messages. Players that were online on Friday, September 16 saw several server-wide messages that included jokes, swearing, and even complaints about the poor pay at developer KingsIsle. That fact that only KingsIsle staff should have access to this broadcast system and the messages about poor pay led many to believe that the messages...

    Cheat Maker is Countersuing Bungie
    by Shawn Zipay
    The countersuit claims Bungie violated DMCA.

    Cheat maker and provider AimJunkies has filed a countersuit against Destiny 2 developer Bungie. This is just the latest step in a long-running legal battle between Bungie and cheat producers such as AimJunkies. This particular tale began in 2021 when Bungie filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against AimJunkies.
