Valve Announces Counter-Strike 2

Valve's massively popular FPS gets an engine upgrade and a test starting today.

Valve officially announced Counter-Strike 2 today after weeks of teases, speculation, and rumors. The developer calls this "the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike's history" and I'm inclined to believe it.

Counter-Strike 2 will launch to everyone starting in Summer of 2023. Counter-Strike 2 will be a free upgrade to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Some Counter-Strike:...

Sony's Jim Ryan Reportedly Said His Goal is to 'Block Your Merger' in Closed Door Meeting with Activision

The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment reportedly had some choice words during a meeting with Activision.

It has been a ridiculous day for Sony when it comes to new details that have come out about the company's opposition to the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger.

First, a new report from The Verge's Tom Warren shared some key pieces of information from documents (PDF download) that were recently submitted to the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)....

Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

An easy purchase for new players but maybe a hard sell for existing owners.

It was not until I reinstalled the original PC release of The Outer Worlds that I was able to really appreciate the improvements made with the release of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

"I'm just not seeing what makes this Spacer's Choice Edition worth...

All Steam Fest and Steam Sale Dates for 2023

Valve shared their 2023 schedule of events with developers.

The entire schedule of big seasonal sales and themed Steam Fest events was shared yesterday by Valve. Now you'll know months in advance just how badly your bank accounts are going to hurt.

The list includes four major seasonal sales that include the spring, summer, autumn, and winter sales. In between most of these are small "Fest" events, which also typically have themed sales of their own. There will...

    Sega and Tencent Also Ditch E3 2023

    This show is about to feature Konami and Konami only.

    A day after Ubisoft announced that they were not going to attend E3 2023 after all, comes word that neither Sega nor Tencent will be there either. This news was shared with IGN by "numerous individuals in publishing and PR who typically have knowledge of event strategies."

    Many of these sources told IGN that they have not yet heard of anyone else who is planning to attend E3 2023. They also say that part of...

  • What you need to know about in-game purchases - The Basics

    What you need to know about in-game purchases - The Basics

    In-game purchases are now very common among players of all ages. What most gamers probably don't realise is that video game companies use behavioural psychology to heavily stimulate their customers before they even decide to make an in-game purchase. Mobile games played on phones and tablets, and in particular 'free-to-play' downloadable games, are currently leading the way in terms of monetisation. But how is it possible that a product that is free to download and play can, in fact, generate...

    Crime Boss: Rockay City Launch Trailer

    Get another look at a lot of yesterday's biggest stars.

    A launch trailer came out today for Crime Boss: Rockay City. If you don't know about this game, I can't say I really blame you. As far as I know, the only thing we heard about this game previously was when it was announced during The Game Awards last December.

    I haven't seen any news about this. I haven't seen previews about this game. In fact, they still haven't really shown off just what you're even doing in this...

    Warner Bros. Games and developer Player First Games announced that the Early Access for MultiVersus will end on June 25. Unlike most games that leave Early Access, the full game won't be launched shortly after. In fact, the full launch of MultiVersus won't happen until early 2024 at the earliest.

    Ubisoft Pulls Out of E3 2023

    Ubisoft says that they no longer plan on attending E3 2023. This comes just a month after Ubisoft initially said that they would be in attendance at the revamped in-person event. Though companies such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo already said they weren't going to E3 2023, Ubisoft is the first major publisher to pull out of E3.

  • Generation Zero Turns 4 as Devs Promise More Years to Come

    Generation Zero Turns 4 as Devs Promise More Years to Come

    The open-world action game has come a long way since release.

    When Generation Zero launched four years back, it sure left a lot to be desired. The game felt mechanically clunky and there were a myriad of other issues that just left a bit of a sour taste in a lot of players' mouths. Since that release, developer Systemic Reaction has released numerous updates, fixes, and quite a bit of additional content (some free, some paid) that have pushed the game to sitting at a comfy "Mostly...

    Diablo 4 is Reportedly Killing GPUs

    If you have an RTX 3080 Ti, you may want to be careful.

    PC Gamer yesterday reported on an issue impacting those with Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards trying to run the now open Diablo 4 beta. Beginning last weekend with the closed beta, owners of the RTX 3080 Ti have taken to the Blizzard forums and Reddit to report that Diablo 4 killed their graphics cards.

    According to what users are reporting, at a random point when playing the Diablo 4 beta, their monitors will go...

    Next week, DICE is preparing to roll out the 4.1.0 update for Battlefield 2042. This is the first major update for Season 4: Eleventh Hour, though it's not the first update of the season.

    For the 12th(?) time now (excluding separate staggered regional release dates), Resident Evil 4 has been released! This time, it's different. This one isn't just a port of the original Resident Evil 4 on to another platform. This time, it's a full on remake and it. Is. Glorious.

  • Elden Ring Update Adds Extremely Subtle Ray Tracing to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series

    The latest patch adds in some graphical eye candy for those that can run it.

    Ray tracing was said to be coming to Elden Ring prior to the game's release. It may be a year after Elden Ring was released, but the promised ray tracing is now here. The new v1.09 patch for Elden Ring adds in ray tracing options for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions of the game. Obviously, there's not going to be any ray tracing features for those playing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One who downloaded...

    TMNT: The Last Ronin to Show a More Adult Side to the Turtles

    The 2020 comic is being turned into a God of War-like action title.

    What some claim is the "darkest" comic series involving the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is being turned into a video game. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin is set to be a third-person action focused adaptation of the 2020 comic series of the same name. Like the comic, this game will be a darker and more mature take on the Turtles.

    Microsoft Cancelled a PlayStation 5 Version of Redfall

    Arkane's Harvey Smith says a planned PS5 version was scrapped following Microsoft's acquisition of Bethesda.

    Redfall is an upcoming cooperative FPS that will have you and up to three additional friends roaming the town of Redfall slaying vampires. Redfall was announced as being exclusive for PC and Xbox platforms, which does make a lot of sense seeing as how the developer, Arkane, is owned by Bethesda and Bethesda is owned by Microsoft.

Monthly Poll


  • Poll: What Platform Do you Game on the Most?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Do you prefer consoles? PC? Maybe mobile is your preferred platform?

    This month's poll is a bit generic if only because I really don't know what to ask right now and this is the easiest thing that came to mind. The question is simple: Which sort of platform do you prefer to play games on?

    Do you like playing on consoles? Do you prefer to play games on PC? What about mobile games? Maybe you prefer to spend most of your time on your phone playing this, that, or the other....
    Consoles (Ex: PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, etc.)
    PC (Including Steam Deck)
    Mobile (Ex: iOS or Android phones/tablets)
    Standalone VR (Ex: Meta Quest 2)
    Other (Ex: No preference or maybe you play only at arcades or those handheld Tiger Electronic games)
