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.

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...

    New Fortnite Patch Reduces Install Size by 60GB

    Shrunk to about a third of its current install size.

    According to the Fortnite Status Twitter account, the patch that was released today for Fortnite will have a significant impact on the game's install size. Patch v14.40 will be a larger than normal update (27GB), but the team says that this is a necessary evil in order to shrink the overall game size down by 60GB!

    Prior to this patch, the game was sitting at a chonky 90GB on PC. This patch will shrink the install size...

    Croteam Acquired by Devolver Digital

    Devolver Digital now owns the Serious Sam team.

    Devolver Digital announced today that they have acquired Croteam, the studio behind the Serious Sam franchise. The acquisition seems to make a ton of sense given that the two companies have already been working closely together for over a decade as is.

    This announcement comes courtesy of a new blog post from Devolver Digital.

    The two have partnered on a number of titles over the years. Of course there are the...

    A Celebration of the Jak and Daxter Series


    Long before Californian developers Naughty Dog broke new ground with modern classics The Last of Us and The Last of Us 2, they brought gamers a distinctly unique series that has gone on to become a cult classic and a fond memory for a certain generation of PlayStation fans. Unlike The Last of Us’ grittily realistic post-apocalyptic world and cinematic storyline that rivals the best movies, movies like Wolf of Wall Street, in the 2000s Naughty Dog were bringing us a colorful fantasy world...

    Half-Life: Alyx Mod Takes Us to BioShock's Rapture

    There's always a lighthouse.

    A new mod for Half-Life: Alyx was brought to light today courtesy of UploadVR. This mod, from developer wim.buytaert.1988, combines together Half-Life: Alyx with BioShock. The core idea here is that Alyx "crash-lands" in the underwater world of Rapture.

    This is accomplished by using repurposed assets from Half-Life: Alyx in combination with new assets based on locations within BioShock itself. It's not a 1 to 1 recreation of BioShock,...

    Amnesia: Rebirth is Out Now

    Available now on PS4 and PC.

    Frictional Games released Amnesia: Rebirth today on the PC and PlayStation 4. This is a game that we have already covered extensively in the previous weeks and months, so I'll spare you those details and get right into the press release portion.

    I will make a note here to say that this game is NOT a remake or a remaster of the first Amnesia game. People seem to believe that it is just because the title has "Re-" in it somewhere. This is an entirely new Amnesia title from the studio that made Amnesia: The Dark Descent. ...

    Play as a couple of iconic horror movie villains in the new Warzone event.

    If you thought that Call of Duty: Warzone would be a safe reprieve from the spooks and scares that come with the Halloween season, you would be wrong. You would be dead wrong. Call of Duty: Warzone has a special "Haunting of Verdansk" that stars Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Jigsaw from the Saw franchise.

  • Poll: NFTs and Video Games - A Match Made in Heaven or Hell?

    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!
