Review: 5-hour Energy Gamer Shot

You ever write a three-page review for an energy supplement?

In early May 2024, 5-hour ENERGY (hereto after shown as 5-hour Energy) released a new Gamer Shot line of energy drink supplements. We got some news about it because this is a video game website that posts video game related news. That is how these things work. These 5-hour Energy Gamer Shots are available in three flavors: Pineapple Charge, Rocket Raspberry, and Apple Bash. Unless things have suddenly changed in the fe...
 

Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

TikTok Ban Signed Into Law by President Biden

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...
 

Ubisoft Pulls Licenses for The Crew, Makes the Game Completely Inaccessible to Buyers

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

The Crew was Ubisoft's open-world racing game that was pulled from sale back in December 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Ubisoft shut down the online servers for The Crew. This effectively made the game unplayable across all platforms, including: PC,...

  • Depending on Who You Ask: Everyone or Nobody at DICE is Currently Working on Battlefield 2042

    Schrödinger's development team.

    Depending on who you listen to and who you believe, either a "skeleton crew" is left working on Battlefield 2042 development, or the entire team at DICE is still working on the game.

    Back in April, the idea that there were only a handful of people left working on Battlefield 2042 started to circulate online. When asked how many people were still working on 2042, DICE game designer Frederik Drabert said that "almost everyone"...

    The official Halo account says that the campaign co-op "flight" (ie: "playtest") will be available first to those enrolled as a Halo I...

    Seven years of support, updates, and content comes to an end.

    June 9 marks the date in which Techland will officially bring to an end new, active development on the original Dying Light. Over the past seven years, the studio has released what can best be described as a ton of updates, improvements, and content for the zombie slaying game.

  • Fortnite Might Add a First-Person Mode

    Fortnite Might Add a First-Person Mode

    This is perhaps not the FPS from Epic you were looking for.

    Epic Games is no stranger to first-person shooters, what with them having made several of them with the Unreal franchise and all. Lately, their real bread and butter has been found in Fortnite, a game that is very much not an FPS.

    That might be changing in the near future. Known Fortnite data miner and leaker, HYPEX, shared that Epic Games is developing a first-person camera mode for their battle royale.

  • E3 Returns in 2023 as Online and In-Person Event

    E3 Returns in 2023 as Online and In-Person Event

    In addition to an online show, E3 will also feature an in-person event for the first time since 2019.

    A Washington Post interview with ESA president and CEO Stan Pierre-Louis, says that E3 will return in 2023 and will be both online and an in-person event. This will be the first in-person E3 event since 2019 due to COVID-related cancellations and whatnot.

    When word about E3 2022's cancellation came about, it was said that E3 was returning in 2023. At the time, we did not...

  • Battlefield 2042 Update 1.0 Patch Notes

    Battlefield 2042 Update 1.0 Patch Notes

    Yes, 1.0. We're up to version 1.0 after the game has been out now for almost 200 days.

    Battlefield 2042 is truly the gift that keeps on giving. I mean that in the most condescending way possible here. Since Battlefield 2042 officially launched on November 19, 2021 it has received zero content updates while the team at DICE worked to make the game less of a steaming mess of a pile. The first season for the game is, at last, finally upon us and with it comes a rather anemic amount of...

  • Microsoft Makes Java and Bedrock Editions of Minecraft a Single Purchase

    Microsoft Makes Java and Bedrock Editions of Minecraft a Single Purchase

    You can still play each version separately.

    The tale of the two separate versions of Minecraft on PC is an odd one. A while back, if you had purchased the Java version of Minecraft prior to October 19, 2018, you were able to claim a free copy of the non-Java built Bedrock Edition for free. All you had to do was tie your existing Mojang account to your Microsoft account.

    If you didn't own the game prior to that 2018 cutoff date, you could still get Minecraft, but you apparently...

    These testers are not employed directly through Electronic Arts. They are employed as contractors through Keywords Studios, which has over 40 offices all around the world. These...

    Master of Hype Geoff Keighley Says to Not Get Too Hyped for Summer Game Fest

    The event will mainly focus on already announced games.

    If you were looking for the Summer Game Fest to come out swinging with announcements like Bloodborne 2 or Bloodborne on PC or even Bloodborne Kart Racer, you may be severely disappointed. The master of hype himself, Geoff Keighley, has come out to say that the Summer Game Fest will be "primarily focused" on games that were already announced.

    Voices Added to Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl in New Update

    Better late than never?

    One of the biggest cons working against the initial release of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was the fact that the characters were not voiced. It looks like they have realized the error of their ways and have now added in voice lines for the characters.

    The biggest update yet released for the game includes the voice-over lines, new items, and is available for free right now to those on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. Switch owners will get the update soon....
