Happy birthday, Half-Life!

On Sunday, November 19, 2023, Half-Life officially turns 25 years old. To commemorate this crazy milestone for this awesome game and franchise, Valve is giving away the original game along with releasing a major update.

First up, Valve has made the original Half-Life free to keep to anybody that adds it to their Steam library this weekend. If you somehow do not own the original Half-Life, take this opportunity to add it to your account now and...
 

Alan Wake 2 Review: A Must-Play Psychological Horror Experience

Easily, the best horror game in years.

In 2010 Remedy Entertainment released Alan Wake, a game where a writer is pulled into a horrifying world seemingly of his own creation. Alan Wake was a game that I bounced off at least two times. Despite the game being well received by critics and fans, I felt like its gameplay was just a repetitive slog that even its unique story could not overcome. When a sequel was announced by Remedy, I found myself extremely indifferent to the news. Still...
 

It's Finally Over - Activision Blizzard Joins Xbox

As it turns out, this corporate version of Mr. Bones' Wild Ride does actually end.

This also means that Activision Blizzard IPs such as Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Candy Crush Saga, and hundreds more are now owned by Microsoft.

This entire saga of a tale began back on January 18, 2022...

My new daily driver.

We are once again delving into the world of gaming headsets, this time with a spotlight shining brightly on Nacon's RIG 900 MAX HX. Priced at $249.99 (USD), the 900 MAX HX aims to be a more premium and feature-filled offering than the RIG 600 PRO HS we recently reviewed. Featuring the same dual-wireless connectivity as the 600 PROs, the 900 MAX HX sets itself apart thanks to Dolby Personalized audio support with Dolby Atmos 3D, plus a charging base station, a more...
 

Review: Starfield

A safe, if not soulless, journey through the cosmos.

Bethesda Game Studios releases are safe. They are familiar. You know almost exactly what to expect when a major new release from them rolls around. They instill a feeling of "I know this game won't be groundbreaking, but I know I'll have fun." Yes, there are some obvious differences, but the heart of each Bethesda game is almost universally the same. The recent release of Starfield is no different. To put it bluntly: Starfield is Fall...

  • DICE Says Battlefield 2042 Hovercraft Climbing is Removed in Update 4.0

    DICE Says Battlefield 2042 Hovercraft Climbing is Removed in Update 4.0

    Truly, the end of an era.

    Prior to the release of Battlefield 2042, players discovered that the hovercraft was able to scale completely vertical surfaces. This led to situations that was sometimes amusing, sometimes frustrating, but always gravity defying.

    This, let's call it "exploit," went unchecked for months now. However, it seems as though the era of the gravity defying hovercraft is about to come to an end. A member of the DICE development team working...

  • Saints Row Customization Showcase Scheduled for April

    Saints Row Customization Showcase Scheduled for April

    Will focus on customization. Obviously.

    Volition has been rather quiet when it comes to all things Saints Row over these past several months. The last we heard about Saints Row was when it was back in November 2021 when it was delayed by several months from February 25 to August 23, 2022. Before that, we were at least given a lengthy gameplay reveal video.

    That silence was broken today as Volition and Deep Silver announced a big customization showcase for Saints Row. This...

    Hello Games Says New Project is Super Ambitious

    The No Man's Sky developer isn't quite ready to talk about it just yet though.

    Hello Games is working on a new project that is apparently so ambitious it would "seem impossible" even with a team of 1,000 members. This is according to Hello Games' co-founder Sean Murray in a brief interview with IGN.

    Murray says that what they have been working on since at least September 2021 is not a sequel to No Man's Sky. It is, however, just as ambitious a project.

    Like in 2020 and 2021, QuakeCon 2022 will again be a digital-only event. This year's event will run from August 18 - 20.

    Bethesda says that while they are disappointed to not be able to return this year, they are still "working hard to put together exciting new streaming programming, online meetups, giveaways, charity opportunities, the virtual BYOC, and more." Bethesda notes that they will have far more detaitls to...

    A whole week of free access to over 100 games.

    If you aren't subscribed to Ubisoft+, and I don't know any who are, you can try it out for free for a week. According to Ubisoft, those who subscribe between now (April 12) and 9AM (UTC) on May 11 will get a free week of access to Ubisoft+.

    This is worded really oddly, so I'm not sure if you do or do not need to "subscribe" to Ubisoft+, complete with a credit card, to get this free week and then cancel before they...

    Just a couple of weeks back, right near the end of March, we brought you a story about a Call of Duty: Vanguard player that was caught cheating by himself. Today, yet another player outed themselves live on stream, with the only difference being the way it all played out.

    Vanguard's second highest Ranked Play leaderboard position is held by a player known as "pplehx." pplehx also seems to enjoy streaming his gameplay on Twitch....

    Battlefield 2042 Player Count Hits New Milestone

    This milestone comes just five months after release.

    Player numbers for Battlefield 2042, at least those playing on Steam, have hit an all-new milestone today! Sadly, not all milestones are good. According to both SteamCharts and SteamDB, the concurrent player count for Battlefield 2042 fell below 1,000 players for the first time.

    SteamCharts showed as few as 979 players were on at once while SteamDB shows a slightly less grim count of 983 players.

  • Sony Invests Another $1 Billion in Epic

    Sony Invests Another $1 Billion in Epic

    This comes a year after Sony invested $200 million.

    Last year, Sony invested $200 million (USD) into Epic Games. I could have sworn I put up a news post about this when it happened, but I cannot seem to find it at the moment, so you'll just have to trust me on this. Or you can just read the official release of that from April 13, 2021 via Epic Games.

    Almost one year later and Sony is again pouring money into Epic Games. This time, instead of $200 million the amount is...

    by Shawn Zipay
    2023 has been a banger year for new game releases.

    2023 has already been an absolutely incredible year when it comes to new game releases. In 2023 alone, Metacritic lists 25 game releases that have amassed an average score of 90 or higher. The previous best year, again according to Metacritic, was back in 2011.

    Let's just take a little glimpse at some of the games that came out this year that scored a 90 or higher. We had Baldur's Gate 3 in August, The Legend of Zelda:...
