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...

  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint Will No Longer Receive New Content

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint Will No Longer Receive New Content

    I'm sure dozens of people are upset by this.

    Ubisoft announced that they will no longer release any new content for Ghost Recon Breakpoint. This reveal comes several months after the release of the last piece of content for the game, Operation Motherland, which came out on November 2, 2021.

    Really, today's announcement was probably just a confirmation of what the remaining fans of the game already kind of figured out by now. Ghost Recon Breakpoint did receive about two...

  • CD Projekt Red Explains Their Decision to Use Unreal Ending 5 for The Witcher 4

    A big reason was stability.

    During today's "State of Unreal" stream, CD Projekt Red had a moment to explain just why they have decided to use Unreal Engine 5 for their upcoming Witcher sequel. The decision was made a while back to develop this sequel, be it called The Witcher 4 or something else, using Unreal Engine 5 instead of their in-house REDengine 4. I bet you didn't see this move coming, but if you are a betting man (or woman) be sure to check out casino online....

    Elden Ring's Radahn Boss Gets Un-Nerfed in Latest Patch

    A new update includes just one change but it's a big one for those who hate nerfs.

    A small update was released earlier today for Elden Ring. This April 4 patch is available for all platforms that the game is currently available on. Though small in size, this patch has some big repercussions for players who have not yet defeated one of the game's main boss encounters.

    Back when Elden Ring's patch 1.03 came out, it included a number of little adjustments to the game. Some...

    Paramount+ just released the first episode of the Halo TV series for free on YouTube. This freebie will be yours to watch for a limited time before being removed on April 7. Oh, you also have to be in a region where Paramount+ is available in order to watch it on YouTube.

    I'm simply going to link to the first episode of Halo on YouTube, because embedding it is probably a crapshoot given YouTube's age restrictions and the...

    Twitch Disables Paid Channel Boosts Due to Pornography

    Twitch being horny on main.

    Late last year, Twitch began to test a system that would allow viewers to pay real money to boost a streamer's channel to Twitch's main page. This would perhaps give the streamer some added exposure and help their channel grow. It was also obviously an easy way for Twitch (ie: Amazon) to pull in even more money.

    Today, that grand experiment came to a predictable end. Viewers were using this boost feature to push channels to the main page of...

    E3 2022 is Fully Cancelled

    Oh no, what will we ever do?

    The in-person event for E3 was already cancelled a while back for 2022. The potential was still lingering in the air that a digital event would be held again, as it was in 2021. Thankfully, someone opened up a window and that lingering rumor finally dissipated.

    E3 2022 is cancelled in every regard. There is no in-person event. There is no digital event. It's done. It's gone. It's outta here. Goodbye, E3.

    by Shawn Zipay
    It's AAAA vs WB.

    March isn't even over yet and we've already seen a couple of stinkers come out from major gaming studios. While we tend to focus on the surprise hits or quality titles in these polls, this time it's a little bit different.
