Discord Distances Itself from Gaming

Discord is now your place to talk.

Discord was built upon the idea of bringing gamers of all types together. It's certainly a big factor that prompted my friends and I to make the move to Discord from TeamSpeak and Ventrilo however long ago it's been now. We were a group of friends that played a lot of games together. We didn't like the quality of the service we were paying monthly for from the alternatives and decided to give Discord a try. We never looked back.

Cyberpunk 2077 New Trailer Revealed - 'The Gig'

A new trailer showcasing new footage, characters, and story.

Today, CD Projekt Red lifted the lid on a whole lot of new media and impressions for Cyberpunk 2077. A number of outlets have shared their first-hand experiences with a vertical slice of the game based on being able to play it for the past week or two now. Lucky SOBs, I'll tell you what. This all came together today in the release of those impressions to the web alongside a brand new official trailer from CD Projekt Red themselves....
 

Mixer is Shutting Down

Microsoft is pulling the plug on their streaming platform.

On July 22, Microsoft will officially close down their streaming service, Mixer, for good. The plan is to instead move all of its existing partners over to Facebook Gaming. This rather sudden announcement means that Mixer partners and streamers will be moving to Facebook Gaming beginning today.

According to The Verge, Microsoft "has struggled to reach the scale needed to Mixer to compete with Twitch, YouTube,...
 

Review: Disintegration

A terribly underwhelming take on the sci-fi FPS genre.

Disintegration, the debut title from V1 Interactive, places players in the shoes of Romer Shoal. Shoal was a former celebrity robot turned outlaw that leads a group of other current outlaws to take down the evil Rayonne. This is done through a lot of vehicle focused combat and some great character designs, but a terrible story with some surprisingly shallow gameplay. Though the game aims to become a real genre defining moment for...
 

Review: Maneater

A fun, albeit shallow, gameplay experience.

Maneater is one of those titles that is just the right amount of dumb fun. It pushes the dumb just far enough that you are not overly concerned with its obvious shortcomings. I suppose that any game that places you in the fins of a growing, angry as hell bull shark that can mutate and grow. These mutations provide your shark with gain special abilities is not a game that would ever take itself too seriously.

Maneater is a game...

  • Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    This seems unnecessary.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royale game that came out in 2017 as an Early Access title. In all this time, nobody once seriously questioned why 100 people were jumping out of an airplane to murder each other in remote locations. Apparently, somebody at PUBG Corp. finally raised that question because the game is getting a backstory for its upcoming fourth season.

    It is every bit as unnecessary as you are probably imagining it to be....

  • Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

    The good news is that the battery life upgrades are not insignificant. At present, Nintendo says that the current Switch (HAC-001) has between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life, depending...

  • Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Plus, try it free for one month.

    Back at E3, Ubisoft announced that they would soon launch their own subscription service. This service that they're calling Uplay+ would function much like EA's Access and Origin Access programs in that you will be able to pay a monthly fee to gain access to an ever growing library of old and new titles from the publisher. Really, the only major differences that I can see here is the fact that Uplay+ may not include a discount on game purchases like...

  • No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally...

    Dust2 Lives on with Today's Release of Bizarre PC/VR/AR Title DUSTNET

    Play Dust2 like you've never played it before.

    DUSTNET is a new multiplayer deathmatch game that simultaneously resurrects and completely reimagines Dust2. And yes, when I say "Dust2" I am very much talking about de_dust2 from Counter-Strike. Only, this isn't Counter-Strike, or is it?

    DUSTNET allows cross-platform play between those on PC, those playing in VR, and those using augmented reality (AR). Players go back to the ruins of an old server that is forever...

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Stop monkeying around.

    On October 29, 2019, those on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get to pick up and purchase and play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. This same game will also hit the PC via Steam at some point during Winter 2019.

    This was originally released for the Nintendo Wii back in 2006. Of course, back then such a thing like HD was a mere dream. Folks back then were stuck at pitiful resolutions like 480p or even 576i. Ewwww. Could you...

    The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

    In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain...

    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...
