Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

    The Callisto Protocol Massively Underperformed

    The game is also reportedly having trouble recuperating development costs.

    Now this story may need to be taken with a little bit of salt. There is a new report out of a Korean media outlet that offers up a little insight as to how poorly The Callisto Protocol has performed. The information shared here has only been seen in this one report and, even without any sort of translation issues, may still be inaccurate. The information coming out of Korea was also shared by MP1ST.

    More than 800,000 people have played this Among Us clone.

    Across the weekend running from January 8th through the 9th, Steam broke all sorts of records. As we assumed prior, these user records hit by Steam were probably helped out quite a bit by the surge in popularity of a game called Goose Goose Duck. This is the Among Us clone originally released in October 2021 that rose in popularity over the past week after a K-pop star from the group BTS, Kim "V" Tae-hyung, played...

    Ubisoft Delays Skull and Bones a Sixth Time, Cancels Three Other Games

    Ubisoft isn't doing so hot these days.

    On Wednesday, Ubisoft said that they are "facing major challenges as the industry continues to shift towards mega-brands and long-lasting titles that can reach players across the globe, across platforms, and business models." That is to say, some of Ubisoft's latest releases didn't perform all that well and the company isn't doing as well as they had expected.

    Ubisoft flatly says that their "recent launches have not...

    Want Final Fantasy 16? Just Buy a PlayStation 5

    Producer Naoki Yoshida seems to suggest a PC release isn't happening at all.

    When Square Enix first revealed Final Fantasy XVI it wasn't really clear if the game would be released later on PC. Most of us kind of assumed it would be since, you know, every other Final Fantasy has come to PC eventually. The initial trailer reveal, still up on YouTube courtesy of IGN, even says "also available on PC" in fine print at the bottom in the final seconds of the trailer.

    If you purchased the first release of the Meta Quest VR headset, you are probably already used to getting shafted on features and support. Ever since the Meta Quest 2 was released, parent company Meta has essentially abandoned releasing updates for the previous generation hardware.
