G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

EDF! EDF! EDF!

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

    This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

    The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...

  • Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    That's one way of dealing with cheaters.

    Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends, says that they will soon begin to implement a new method of anti-cheat in their still fairly popular battle royale title. Unlike many other methods of anti-cheat, this one aims to issue softbans against known cheaters.

    In short, this means that people who are detected to be cheating will be matched up only against others who have been found to be cheating. These people will not be matched up against those who are legitimate players. That is, of course, assuming their system...

  • Gears 5 Does Away with Smoking

    Gears 5 Does Away with Smoking

    Smoking is bad, but violence...?

    Gears 5 will not include any depictions of smoking. The upcoming third-person shooter, slated for release on September 10 on PC and Xbox One, does away with all tobacco use after a push from the Truth Initiative. The anti-smoking organization, Truth Initiative, approached Turner, the company that owns the rights to broadcast Gears 5 ELeague esports matches. Turner, after speaking with Truth Initiative, spoke to The Coalition about the removal of the use of tobacco from the game.

    Previous entries in the Gears of War franchise have had...

  • Ion Maiden Renamed to Ion Fury for Probably Obvious Reasons

    Ion Maiden Renamed to Ion Fury for Probably Obvious Reasons

    Classic 90s FPS has a new name.

    Ion Maiden billed itself as an "old-school FPS" similar in style to the classic games from the 90s. It entered into Early Access a little while back and it plans to exit Early Access on Thursday, August 15. On that date, the game will toss round after round on the PC, with console releases on the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One coming later.

    The game is being developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment. Only, there's just one problem. It won't be called Ion Maiden. As you can probably guess, a band...

    Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

    Launching today with three experiments.

    Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

    If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

  • New Turok Game is Looking Mighty Cute

    New Turok Game is Looking Mighty Cute

    A new game based off of the original Turok comics from 1954.

    A new Turok game is coming to Steam on July 25. It's called Turok: Escape from Lost Valley and you may have noticed that it looks quite a bit different than what you're used to. The previous Turok games were all first-person shooter games. This one is, well, not.

    Turok: Escape from Lost Valley tells the story of Turok and his brother, Andar, being trapped in an area full of dinosaurs. Hunting still happens, but this time it all goes down in an isometric view, providing a bird's eye view of the adorable art...
