Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

Those on Reddit first noticed the missing logo. From there, it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that they have pulled their sponsorship from Blizzard.

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

  • Fallout 4 Capital Wasteland Mod Returns from Limbo

    Fallout 4 Capital Wasteland Mod Returns from Limbo


    A short time back, it seemed like the Capital Wasteland mod for Fallout 4 would be stuck in a perpetual state of limbo. The mod was aiming to essentially bring over Fallout 3, environments and all, into Fallout 4. This included the environments, quests, and even the dialogue from Fallout 3.

    Yeah, there were more than a few legal issues with at least some of that and after some discussions with Bethesda, the mod team opted to put the project on hold. Thankfully, it looks like work on the mod will continue. However, instead of bringing over the voice...

  • Two Popular LEGO Games Pulled from Steam

    Two Popular LEGO Games Pulled from Steam


    As the year ticked over into 2019, two LEGO titles were quietly pulled from Steam and other digital retailers. These two games are the now dearly departed LEGO The Lord of the Rings and LEGO The Hobbit.

    The removal of these two games was first spotted via Reddit user SuperMoonky. It looks as though these games still have their Steam Store pages intact, but they no longer show up when searching for them. Additionally, there is no option to purchase the games should you somehow end up on their pages.

    There has been no official announcement...

    We all love massive game mods, especially when they hold nothing back. Thankfully, the mod scene for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is still very much alive and kicking as we're about to find out. A Skyrim mod team has been hard at work creating a mod called "Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind - The New North," or "The New North," or even "Beyond Skyrim" for short. In a broader sense, Beyond Skyrim will be a collection of mods that bring most major areas of Tamriel together in one mod package. Today's reveal is for Morrowind.

  • Epic Games Reportedly Launching Mobile App Store Next

    Epic Games Reportedly Launching Mobile App Store Next


    First, Epic came for Steam on the PC front. They threw piles of cash at studios to put their games on the Epic Games Store for a period of exclusivity that lasts at least one year or more. Now, Epic may be going after that sweet, sweet mobile industry by launching their own mobile games store.

    This is according to a new report from MarketWatch.



    MarketWatch goes on to say that Epic will once again allow devs to keep 88% of earned revenues. This is in comparison to the 70% that Apple and Google allow for.

  • Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019

    Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019


    In case you forgot, or were simply unaware, Valve will drop Steam support for Windows XP machines beginning January 1, 2019. This more than likely doesn't really impact you unless you are one of the 0.11% that are still using Windows XP as of the November 2018 hardware survey. Of course, Microsoft ended support for XP back in 2014, meaning it has already seen four years without security patches.

    Here is what Valve announced earlier this year about their Windows XP support ending.



    New year, new you, right? Maybe that should...
