$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

  • Tiananmen Square Footage Removed from Call of Duty Trailer

    Tiananmen Square Footage Removed from Call of Duty Trailer

    Activision bending the knee? What? No. Never!

    The first trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was blocked in China and then later edited from every other region because it contained roughly one second of footage from the Tiananmen Square protests from 1989. This is when the Chinese government had a big uh "crackdown" on pro-democracy protesters. That is to say, they murdered the fuck out of their citizens, or made them "disappear," and attacked them with...

  • Rumor: Nintendo to Release Switch Pro Model in 2021

    Rumor: Nintendo to Release Switch Pro Model in 2021

    A year later and the rumor returns.

    In early 2019, there was a rumor that Nintendo was going to release not one, but two new Switch models. One was supposedly going to be a "Pro" variant of the base Switch model. The other would be a cheaper release that had a few cut features. At least part of that rumor came true with the release of the Nintendo Switch Lite.

    Sadly, the rumor of the Pro model did not pan out and the rumor seemed to have fizzled out. That is,...

  • In First Hearing, Apple Wins Right to Remove Fortnite from Store but Not Unreal Engine

    The first battle in a long war has reached its conclusion.

    This past week, Epic had filed for a temporary restraining order in order to prevent Apple from terminating all Epic developer accounts. This was a reactionary response from Apple after Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple for kicking Fortnite from the App Store when Epic decided they did not want to play by the rules.

    This ban against Unreal Engine would have effectively barred all Unreal Engine developers...

    And up to 850W power supply requirement.

    Those of you who have picked up a modern video card in the past several years have probably already had to deal with the dual 8-pin power connectors. Nvidia has reportedly been working on a new 12-pin PCIe power adapter for their upcoming Ampere (30xx series) lineup of cards.
