Ubisoft to return to Steam's "unrealistic" distribution model.

    Plus, details about upcoming new and revised maps, the final new Specialist, and more.

    Though Season 3 for Battlefield 2042 began just about a week and a half back, that hasn't stopped DICE from talking about what's coming next for the game. Season 4 details were shared with fans, plus the studio confirmed that Season 5 will be coming in 2023. Perhaps the most enticing thing mentioned here is that the map set to arrive in Season 5 will be based on a map we last saw in Battlefield 4. T...

    Twitch Adds New Tool to Combat Hate Raids and Harassment

    A new "shield mode" is Twitch's latest effort to help stop harassment.

    Twitch, the live streaming platform owned by Amazon, is again trying to curtail harassment campaigns that have been aptly named "hate raids." This is where some loser gets a large number of people to mass "attack" a target, usually a streamer that is actively streaming, with chat spam that typically consists of personal attacks, slurs, and even personal information.

    We're starting to get a few new details, slowly but surely, about the upcoming Fallout TV show that Amazon is working on. The latest comes from none other than Todd Howard himself, where he notes that the Fallout TV series will be a new story that takes place at the same time as the events in say Fallout 3 and Fallout 4.

    Free Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus Titles Announced for December 2022

    Does the end of the year bring fantastic presents or mere lumps of coal?

    Both Microsoft and Sony announced their last free titles for 2022. These titles being "free" in the sense that you have to be subscribed to either Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate, or one of the several different PlayStation Plus tiers.

  • Charlie Day as Luigi Shines in Latest Trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie

    If there was ever such a stark contrast in casting choices, this would be it.

    On one hand, you still have the terrible choice of Chris Pratt as the voice of Mario. On the other hand you have what is possibly the most perfect pick of Charlie Day as the voice of Luigi. You get a decent amount of both, including the first time hearing Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, more of Jack Black's Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key's Toad, and more all courtesy of the newest trailer for The Super Mario...

    New co-op modes have been added.

    Despite all of the pre-release marketing for Gotham Knights showing off the four different heroes you could potentially play as, the game shipped with only two-player co-op. Whether this was an intentional design decision or some technical limitation remains to be seen.
