Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer."

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released

    Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released


    The "day one patch" for Anthem has just been detailed by BioWare and EA. This is the update that will be required for players to download prior to hopping into Anthem on February 22. As far as I can see, this update has not yet been released to those playing on either EA Access or Origin Access.

    The update contains a decent list of fixes and quality of life improvements. Notably, it addresses the overly long loading times that many players have been very vocally complaining about. It also helps to address infinite loading screen issues, crash bugs, and more.

    The full list of changes can be found below. ...

  • PlanetSide Arena Delayed Until Summer, Refunds Being Offered to Upset Fans

    PlanetSide Arena Delayed Until Summer, Refunds Being Offered to Upset Fans


    Word came in today that PlanetSide Arena has been postponed, read "delayed," until this Summer. With this new announcement comes word that the development team is pushing for a simultaneous release on the PC and the PlayStation 4 at the same point this Summer.

    First, a quick bit about what PlanetSide Arena is supposed to be. It takes many of the gameplay elements from the massive online shooter, PlanetSide 2, and adapts them to a battle royale mode in addition to 250 vs 250 team battles. A closed beta for PlanetSide Arena just wrapped up prompting another delay for...

    MX vs ATV All Out Anniversary Edition Out March 12


    It's been one year since the release of MX vs ATV All Out from THQ Nordic and Rainbow Studios. While most teams typically don't really do much for the one year anniversary of their game, Rainbow Studios decided they didn't want to be like normal studios.

  • Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes

    Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes


    I spy, with my filtered eye, something that is…

    Today, we are going to be reviewing something a little bit outside of the usual. Usually, we typically just review video games or even the occasional piece of hardware for TGN, but a review for glasses? Well, it's certainly a new one for us.

    These are not any old pair of glasses though. These are the Ultralite DT from Eagle Eyes. What sets them apart from other glasses is the promise that they will protect your eyes from blue light that blasts your eyes from any number of digital screens. Eagle Eyes has a nice write-up that talks about some of the ways in which blocking out blue light can help ease the strain on your eyes. The Science of Blue Light FiltersNaturally, you don't have to take their word for it. There have been a number of articles that talk about how staring at computer screens or phones can cause added strain. The ...

  • Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op

    Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op


    If you plan on playing through Crackdown 3 in co-op, it may be worth knowing that the game will be locked to 30FPS. Yes, even on PC.

    To be fair to the Xbox One versions of the game, it's capped at 30FPS as it is, even when playing alone. However, the PC version has the ability to play with much higher framerates, including uncapped if you so desire. That is, unless you're playing co-op on the PC.

    A number of Reddit users have found out that the 30FPS cap comes into play whether or not you are playing PC to PC or PC to Xbox.

    It should also be noted...

  • Critical Consensus: Crackdown 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Jump Force, and Metro Exodus


    Tomorrow is a massive release day for games. For some reason, publishers and developers decided that people who play video games would need a lot of joy in their lives come February 15. I simply cannot fathom why.

Though Anthem is also coming out tomorrow, it is only being released for those that have EA Access, Origin Access, or Origin Access Premier. Reviews for that game have not gone live yet.
