Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...
 

PlayStation VR2 Offers 4K HDR with Foveated Rendering

PSVR2 is shaping up to be one of the most powerful VR experiences.

During their late evening CES 2022 conference, Sony revealed technical specs for PlayStation VR2 and the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.

Sony says that PSVR2 will offer a "true next-gen experience with high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features, and enhanced tracking." Given the impressive specifications that they revealed tonight, we're inclined to believe it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Devs Double Down and then Backtrack on NFT Idea

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...
 

Battlefield 2042 Review: A Battlefield in Ruins

Battlefield 2042 is a shallow, feature-lacking mess of a game that appeals to neither long-time franchise fans nor newcomers.

The release of Battlefield 2042 on November 19th should have been a joyous occasion for fans of the franchise. Instead, what the world received was a broken mess of a game that has long-standing "legacy" features removed, barren maps, and a tone that was often at odds with itself. Even after receiving three major post-launch updates, there is very...

    Year 2 of Hitman 3 to Add Ray Tracing, PC VR, and More

    IO Interactive also hints at something major coming in Spring.

    Hitman 3 released way back on January 20, 2021 and since then IO Interactive has supported the title fairly regularly with content updates, mainly in the form of their "Seven Deadly Sins" motif. With the game's second year of existence rapidly approaching, IO Interactive seems to have no plans to slow down just yet.

    The studio says that Hitman 3's post-launch content will continue throughout 2022...

    Bobby Kotick to Consider Leaving If He Cannot Fix Problems at Activision Blizzard

    Retire, Bobby.

    During a meeting with other senior managers and executives at Activision Blizzard, CEO Bobby Kotick said that he would consider leaving the company if he is unable to fix the issues that he helped to create. Kotick did seem to stop just short of saying that he would step down in the meeting that took place this past Friday. He merely left the door cracked open a bit if the issues weren't fixed "with speed."

    The latest open world racing game sets records for Microsoft and Xbox Game Pass.

    Forza Horizon 5 came out on November 8th to a ton of praise from critics and players alike. It's a fantastic game and it's proving to be a very popular one at that. It should come as no surprise then to hear that Forza Horizon 5 is the biggest launch in Xbox history. So far, over 10 million players have logged in to the game to race around the vast areas of Mexico.

    Talk about a real rollercoaster of a week for Halo Infinite fans. First, 343 Industries and Microsoft surprised dropped the multiplayer to everyone weeks ahead of schedule. Then issues surrounding the Battle Pass progression were brought to light by most everyone playing the game. However, 343 Industries said that they were taking feedback and will be making adjustments in the future. In fact, 343 Industries already applied...

    Hideki Kamiya Apologizes for Scalebound Cancellation

    The Platinum Games director apologizes to fans and Microsoft for the cancelled title.

    In January 2017, the Xbox One and PC exclusive Scalebound was officially cancelled. It was one of the more highly anticipated titles that year that left fans disappointed after its cancellation. Scalebound was first revealed way back in 2014.

    Though it's now almost five years after the game was cancelled, director at Platinum Games Hideki Kamiya seems to still feel some level of guilt...

    Rockstar to give classic releases to PC players for free.

    The state in which all three titles in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition released in could be considered "laughable" at best and downright terrible at worst. By now, you have probably seen countless clips shared on YouTube and social media about the numerous bugs and glitches present in this release.

    The release was so bad that Rockstar Games had to temporarily pull the PC version...

    Multiversus is WB's Stab at a Smash Bros. Like Game

    The Shaggy power memes will probably make a comeback because of this.

    Warner Bros. has officially announced a new fighting game that blends together characters from several of its popular franchises. It's called Multiversus and it will be a free-to-play fighter that seems like one part Smash Bros. and one part Bugs Bunny.

    The reveal came courtesy of a new and in-depth trailer that came out earlier today. The developer behind the game, Player First Games, says that Multiversus...

    Sega Announces Sonic and Yakuza Colognes

    Now you too can smell like a chili eating hedgehog or sweaty muscle man.

    You ever just sit back and ponder what Sonic the Hedgehog would smell like? He's known for eating chili dogs, so would he smell like that or something else? He also likes running through lush green landscapes, so would he perhaps smell instead like freshly washed laundry drying in a summer breeze? It really makes you think, doesn't it?

    Thankfully, Sega is here to save us all from life's greatest mystery....

    Phil Spencer is Evaluating Relationship with Activision

    The Day 1 Battlefield 2042 Patch is Anemic

    It's a whole lot of nothing.

    Battlefield 2042 has been available for those that ponied up the big bucks for the Gold or Ultimate editions, priced at $89.99 (USD) and $109.99 respectively. The standard edition of the game is slated to be released in about a day from now on November 19. To say that the game needs a ton of work would be a gross understatement.

    The only hope was the promised "Day 1" patch for the game that was said to arrive just prior to the standard...

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
