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,...
 

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

No, Starfield and Indiana Jones are not going multi-platform any time soon.

During today's pre-recorded podcast and subsequent blog post, head of Xbox Phil Spencer stated that four Xbox exclusives are going to be multi-platform releases. Is it Starfield? Indiana Jones? Gears of War? Halo?! No, no, no, and no. Though Spencer did not specify what those four titles ...

    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...

    Elden Ring Surpasses 12 Million Copies Sold

    A new update from Bandai Namco.

    Elden Ring launched back on February 25, 2022 and it quickly became one of the best selling FromSoftware games. Hell, it quickly became one of the biggest hits of the past year just in its first month of release. Today, Bandai Namco announced that Elden Ring sales have surpassed 12 million units sold worldwide.

    Sure, these aren't exactly record-breaking numbers here, but it's still an incredibly impressive figure when you consider that FromSoftware's...

    Just when you thought you had the plot all figured out.

    Kingdom Hearts 4 was officially announced this morning by Square Enix.

    You want to know how I found out? Well, I'm going to tell you anyway. It was a nice, lazy Sunday morning. There I was, lounging in my bed after having had a breakfast sandwich from Wendy's. They're like $1 each all through the month of April. Really good deal there. Anyway, I'm lounging in my bed while I had one of my favorite streamers being Chromecast...

    Halo Infinite Season 2 Launches May 3

    Oh no, I put the important bit in the headline.

    Well, this is awkward. I went and put the important information in the headline. That means you don't have to read the rest of this news post because you already know that Season 2 for Halo Infinite will be out on May 3.

    What can I do to fill this space now besides uselessly padding out this story so that I can get enough information in for the preview break? Oh, I know, I can let you know that there was also a new trailer...

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review (PC)

    Ranks among the best of the Borderlands franchise.

    Right out of the gate, I must say that I would consider myself a fan of the Borderlands games. I have played through the first game about two times, the second game about three times, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel about 1.5 times, and Borderlands 3 at least once. I frankly cannot remember if I played through the third game twice, once solo and once with friends, or if I just played through it all once with friends. And really, the less...
