    Battlefield 2042 Update 1.1 Patch Notes

    The first update for Season 1 drops on July 6.

    DICE just detailed what is coming in the 1.1 update for Battlefield 2042. Rather, it's Update #1.1.0, just so we're super clear on this because those previous update versions were needlessly confusing.

    EA Shows Off Pre-pre-pre-alpha Skate Gameplay

    Closed beta registrations are now open.

    The latest video for the upcoming Skate game shows off some very early gameplay footage. How early? Very. The footage says that what is being shown off is from a pre-pre-pre-alpha stage of development. Also, I guess this video confirms that the game will be simply called Skate (stylized as skate.) instead of Skate 4.

    Despite this early stage of development, the team wanted to show everyone what they've been up to since the game was...

    Sucker Punch Confirms That Sly Cooper and Infamous Games Not in Development

    It's like a studio confirming that they're working on a new game, but the opposite.

    Sucker Punch, the studio behind iconic franchises like Sly Cooper, Infamous, and the more recently released Ghost of Tsushima, is busy working on their next game. While we may not know yet what that next game is, we do know what it isn't.

    As the studio's 25th anniversary approaches, Sucker Punch took to their site to provide a little look back on their legacy and to flatly say that they...

  • XIII Remake is Being Remade

    XIII Remake is Being Remade

    Once more, with feeling.

    XIII is a cel-shaded first-person shooter that first came out in 2003. Since then, the game pulled in a fair number of fans and supporters. The game had (at least at the time) a unique visual style, a comic-book style presentation, and none other than David Duchovny voiced the main character. There was a lot to love there.

    In 2019, Microids announced that XIII was getting a remake. Fans were happy up until the remake was released. Then they were...

    Halo Infinite Multiplayer's Desync Issue Won't be Fixed

    343 Industries says that the devs who would fix it are working on other things.

    An issue that has plagued Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode may not get fixed any time soon, or possibly at all. At seemingly random times, there will be some synchronization issues in multiplayer that lead to situations where melee attacks just flat out don't register. The client and server each think that the players are in different positions than what the player sees on their screen.

    Arkane Offers a More Focused Look at Redfall

    Another video to again try to make sense of just what Redfall is and is not.

    Earlier in June, Arkane showed off some new Redfall gameplay footage during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase event. It seems as though the marketing for the game hasn't yet clearly conveyed to players what exactly the game is all about.

    For instance, despite all prior marketing talking about Redfall's co-op experience, we learned that only the host of a game will make progress in the campaign....

  • Poll: Have You Ever Raged Because of a Game?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Broken controllers, holes in walls, excessive yelling and swearing.

    While I'm sure we would all like to consider ourselves here calm, cool, and collected that might not always hold true when playing a frustrating game. Maybe you're having a particularly frustrating day, and nothing is going your way. Maybe your teammates (and totally not you) are doing terrible and you're losing a multiplayer game because of it. Maybe you just died for the 50th time to a boss that did some unblockable...
    Yes, I've raged. Full on broken controller & hole in wall levels of rage.
    Yes, I've raged but without any sort of property damage.
    No / can't remember. I'm as calm as a cucumber even when the odds are stacked against me.
