Microsoft Acquires ZeniMax for $7.5 Billion

It's official.

Microsoft has confirmed that they are in the process of acquiring ZeniMax Media for a cool $7.5 billion (USD) in cash. ZeniMax is the parent company of studios like Bethesda, creator of The Elder Scrolls, as well as id Software, the developer behind DOOM.

This acquisition is reportedly the "biggest video game purchase ever" for Microsoft.

At present, Bethesda has two games that are slated to arrive in 2021. Those include Deathloop...

$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

The next-gen is now fully in gear. With Microsoft announcing the price and release date of their Xbox Series X, the only piece of the puzzle that remained was what Sony would do with the PlayStation 5. Today, the company announced that the Digital Edition will retail for $399.99 (USD) while the "regular" version with a disc drive will retail for $499.99.

Both consoles are expected to launch in select countries...
 

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    A Plague Tale: Innocence Launch Trailer

    Aw rats!

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is ready to be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Actually, from the looks of it, the game is already out in most regions. I believe it unlocked starting around 6PM (ET), the same time the review embargo lifted for the game. Speaking of which, you should go read our review for A Plague Tale: Innocence.

    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many...

    David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    Accusations include a wet-willy and aggressive shoving.

    One week ago, the dispute between Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and former Gearbox employee David Eddings went public in a hurry. It seemed as though this was largely over a pay dispute between the two parties but, as with most things involving Randy Pitchford, there's a bit more to it than that.

    Eddings has claimed, on more than one occasion now, that Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him. These allegations really...

    Two-Day Fortnite Summer Block Party 2019 Event Announced

    You can meet other Fortnite players. Yay?

    Epic Games announced the Fortnite Summer Block Party today. This two-day event will have Fortnite fans coming together to meet various "celebrities" and to meet up with other Fortnite fans. Is that something Fortnite players want to do? PvP games aren't exactly known for having tight-knit communities.

    But alas, here we are.

    If nothing else, event goers will get to see and maybe even get within 20 feet of...

    Ubisoft Announces Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Looks like the leak, along with Jon Bernthal, was true.

    Yesterday, a little leak revealed that the next Ghost Recon game was going to be called Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Today, Ubisoft announced the name of their next Ghost Recon game. It's called Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Surprise!

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be released on October 4 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. I'm assuming the PC release will be done through Uplay and the Epic Games Store only.
