Confirmed after a short bout as a rumor.

Microsoft confirmed the short-lived rumor that Halo Infinite would have free multiplayer. Not only that, but they also confirmed that Halo Infinite, at least the multiplayer component, will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. I'm sure that will also hold true for the PC release as well. Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...
 

Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

  • Doom is the Theme for QuakeCon 2019

    Doom is the Theme for QuakeCon 2019


    If you were to say that Quakecon 2019 is Doomed, you would be correct. Not only because that's the on point headline that Bethesda used in today's press release, but also because Quakecon 2019 is focusing on Doom! It's not even being called QuakeCon 2019, but is instead being called QuakeCon: Year of DOOM!

    DOOM! DOOOOOOOOOOOM!

    Even with all this Doom, there's not a whole lot of gloom to be seen, unless you aren't able to get the registrations you wanted for the...

  • The NBA Jam Announcer in Rage 2 is No Joke

    The NBA Jam Announcer in Rage 2 is No Joke


    I fully admit that I was about to ignore this email today. I believed it to be nothing more than yet another April Fools' joke, but it's apparently super real.

    Bethesda announced today that the legendary announcer from the NBA Jam games, Tim Kitzrow, will be a special narrator voice in Rage 2. They're calling this special pre-order bonus the "'He's on Fire' cheat code" though it's probably just an option you can toggle on and off instead of an actual cheat code. Though...
