Metro Exodus is Back on Steam and at 40% Off

525,600 minutes...

Last night, perhaps when you were snuggled up under your blankets, a little miracle happened. It was in the midnight hour (ET) when Metro Exodus returned to being sold on Steam. Normally, this isn't quite the monumental occasion, but it certainly is in the case of Metro Exodus.

It was Metro Exodus that really kicked off the season of the Epic Games Store exclusive. This was a period in which a fair number of games that were slated to be released on Steam,...
 

Geoff Keighley to Skip E3 for First Time as Troubles Mount for Dying Trade Show

This comes the same day the exhibitor list was leaked.

His decision to not attend this year's event will mark the first time in 25 years that the industry veteran will not be in attendance. It also means that he will not host the annual E3 Coliseum show.

    This is done without outside cheat devices.

    Over the past several weeks, the speed running community has absolutely broken open The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The record for Ocarina of Time any% went from just shy of 17 minutes as of six months ago, to just 12 minutes and 3 seconds as of 4 days ago. To put it into perspective, it took the community over 4 years to get the old record to be under 17 minutes. It's taken them six months to get it to just 12 minutes. For a game ...

  • A Rumor Suggests a Knights of the Old Republic Remake is in Development

    A Rumor Suggests a Knights of the Old Republic Remake is in Development

    It's a slow news day, so here's a rumor born from a single site.

    A new rumor was fired up yesterday from cinelinx.com that says a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is currently in the works. There might be a bit of validity behind this rumor, we aren't exactly sure ourselves. The track record of cinelinx is unknown to us, but it's a slow news day so let's roll with it.

    The site claims that two independent sources have told them that Knights of the Old R...

  • Court Rules that Player's Free Speech Rights Weren't Violated After Being Banned From a Video Game

    Imagine that, a gamer was dumb enough to argue about free speech rights.

    A federal court dismisses a case where an (alleged) moron complained about his free speech rights being violated in a video game. A Pennsylvania man actually tried to claim that his civil rights were violated after he was muted by the developers in an online video game.

    To interject briefly: Yes, there are indeed people that don't have a fucking clue what "freedom of speech" actually means....

  • Some Twitter User Leaked the First Images of Xbox Series X

    Some Twitter User Leaked the First Images of Xbox Series X

    Or it's just a big fake. Who knows anymore.

    Twitter user @Doug_DragoX apparently has access to the Xbox Series X, or just "Xbox," or the "Xbox Formerly Known as Xbox Series X" depending on what day of the week it is.

    So far, all we've really seen for the upcoming Xbox have been some official CG renders and mockups from various sources. We also haven't gotten a good look at the back of the device, even in these officially released renders. Either Microsoft...
