Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

  • Kotaku Rumor Suggests Microsoft is Close to Buying Obsidian

    Kotaku Rumor Suggests Microsoft is Close to Buying Obsidian

    A new rumor popped up about an hour ago courtesy of Kotaku and Jason Schreier that Microsoft is close to purchasing Obsidian. I don't normally post a bunch of rumors on the site unless there is good reason for it and the reason I'm posting this one is because Jason Schreier has a great track record on this sort of stuff. So while it's not confirmed or announced anywhere, there is probably a good chance that the rumor being true of Microsoft being close to buying Obsidian. Kotaku's sources say that the deal is "90%" finished, while another suggested that the de...

  • Get Famous in the Latest Expansion for The Sims 4

    Get Famous in the Latest Expansion for The Sims 4

    EA announced a new expansion coming November 16 for The Sims 4. It's called The Sims 4 Get Famous and this expansion will allow PC and Mac users to uh... try to become famous. That all seems fairly self explanatory given the title of the expansion. Your Sims can become celebs by becoming actors, which I assume will be far, far easier than actually becoming a big named actor for real.
    In The Sims 4 Get Famous, Sims can launch into celebrity status with an all-new acting career. They can catch their big break through a standout audition, landing a role in a

    Fret not, however, because developer Kamu says that they will continue to work with other developers and other game engines for their anti-cheat solutions. Epic's Tim Sweeney also offered up his own thoughts on this new acquisition.
