    Tekken 8 Won't Use Denuvo

    Harada says you all "sit the hell down" now.

    You won't have to worry about Tekken 8 including the anti-tamper and DRM software Denuvo. Tekken 8 director Katsuhiro Harada flat out said on Twitter that the game will not include Denuvo "or anything else" like it.

    Second Baldur's Gate 3 Update Fixes Protruding Dicks

    Oh, and there are a bunch of other fixes included.

    The second post-release "hotfix" update for Baldur's Gate 3 was released a short time ago today. Sure, this update includes some nice fixes for a few game crashes, progression blockers, and other issues. However, the big news here is that penis options C and D will no longer clip through some of the githyanki clothing. Likewise, male gnome sorcerers are no longer missing their underwear.

  • Rockstar Disappoints Fans by Announcing Red Dead Redemption for Switch and PS4

    Our expectations were low, but holy f---

    For months now, rumors have been swirling that Rockstar Games was working on a modern release of their beloved Old West action title, Red Dead Redemption. Those rumors even included the idea that Rockstar was working on a remaster of Red Dead Redemption, though those rumors were hit by another rumor saying that the studio canned the idea following the poor reception to the GTA Trilogy.

    Valve Hits Reset Button on CS:GO Tournaments

    No business agreements allowed between pro teams and tournament organizers.

    For years now, Valve has kept a rather hands-off approach to the professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene. That's all about to come to an end as the studio announced major sweeping changes to the rules that apply to CS:GO tournament organizers.

    Despite these statements being made today, August 3, 2023, the changes will not go into effect until 2025.

    Baldur's Gate 3 Probably Not on Xbox Until 2024 Due to Series S

    There is no exclusivity deal, it's simply a matter of the Xbox Series S.

    An Xbox release of Larian Studios' Baldur's Gate 3 is still coming but it probably won't be out for a long while. The reason isn't due to any sort of timed exclusive deal inked with Sony, but rather because of issues related to the Xbox Series S.

    Larian Studios' director of publishing Michael Douse took to Twitter to very heavily imply that issues related to Microsoft's weaker Series console may not...

  • Poll: What Do You Think About AI Generated Content?

    Poll: What Do You Think About AI Generated Content?

    I support the use of AI in any and all cases (Full AI articles, image creation, fully recreating a person's voice, etc.)
    I support the use of AI but only when it is used to help humans ("Smart" writing suggestions, search engine results, smart home devices, etc.)
    I do not support the use of AI in any situation

    The poll is expired.

    The future of "journalism" or a never ending disaster?

    Over the past several months, many media outlets have made major pushes to automate their content output with AI generated articles. Some groups, such as Gamurs, had the audacity to put up a job listing for an AI Editor that would help facilitate the creation of 250 AI generated articles per week. That situation is made all the worse by the fact that Gamurs had just laid off roughly 40% of its workforce only a month before...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
