Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...
 

PlayStation VR2 Offers 4K HDR with Foveated Rendering

PSVR2 is shaping up to be one of the most powerful VR experiences.

During their late evening CES 2022 conference, Sony revealed technical specs for PlayStation VR2 and the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.

Sony says that PSVR2 will offer a "true next-gen experience with high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features, and enhanced tracking." Given the impressive specifications that they revealed tonight, we're inclined to believe it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Devs Double Down and then Backtrack on NFT Idea

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...

    Sony Cuts Production Plans for PlayStation 5 by 1 Million Units

    That dreaded chip shortage strikes once again.

    Sony has apparently cut production plans for the PlayStation 5 consoles by about one million units. This is due to, you guessed it, component shortages. Who didn't see that one coming? We already had news just yesterday about Valve's Steam Deck being delayed by two months because of COVID-19 related component shortages, and here we are again.

    As fewer consoles are expected to be made, it stands to reason that it will be even...

    You ever get a sense of déjà vu? It is once again time for a new Battlefield game and that means there will be some bugs included. I mean, every game has them these days and they aren't completely unexpected. However, when it comes to Battlefield, there may be a bit more worry from fans who remember the release of Battlefield 4.

    History may be ready to repeat itself when Battlefield 2042 launches. DICE has already posted a list of known issues and...

    Can complicated gaming jargon put people off?


    The online casino and gaming world can be something of a minefield. If you are used to playing games in a traditional setting such as a casino then visiting some more 'modern' websites then it may become confusing. You might have been a big gamer in previous eras and want to get back involved but are put off by the language used by developers like Microsoft and Sony.

    Let's try to help you understand the jargon. We'll then look at the dangers of potentially over complicating...

    Expect 'Double Digit' New Game Announcements During The Game Awards 2021

    And probably even more award winners delegated to brief mentions.

    The Game Awards 2021 will include "double digit" new game announcements. This is according to creator and host of the show, Geoff Keighley, in an interview with industry veteran Brian Crecente. This interview was made for and shared to the Epic Games Store for some unknown reason. Maybe this is just an indication that all of the new PC game announcements are going to be Epic Games Store exclusive. Wouldn't...

    Those damned global chip shortages strike again!

    Valve just passed along some unfortunate news today concerning the Steam Deck. Due to "global supply chain issues" the Steam Deck release has been pushed back by two months. The earliest Steam Deck will begin shipping has shifted from December 2021 to February 2022.

    If reading the words "global supply chain issues" wasn't enough, I'll be more clear here. There is a big chip shortage that has been going...

    The Tomorrow Children to Make Surprise Return

    The long-forgotten PS4 exclusive is set to make a comeback.

    In September 2016, a unique and stylized game for the PlayStation 4 was released. It was called The Tomorrow Children, it offered both a paid and free-to-play option, and it had a very short life. The game lasted just 13 months before the servers were turned off in November 2017. Five years later, it looks like The Tomorrow Children is ready to return.

    Just don't expect to see it any time soon.

    Bethesda's Todd Howard recently sat down with IGN for a new episode of IGN Unfiltered. The media outlet talked about a number of different subjects with the Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard, mostly focusing on the 10th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. However, one of the non-Skyrim topics briefly touched upon was the future of the Fallout franchise.

    To that end, Howard says that the studio has an idea for Fallout...

    Fortnite Pulls Travis Scott Dance Emote

    Epic did not provide a reason why, but we've got a pretty good idea.

    Epic Games removed the Travis Scott "Out West" dance emote from Fortnite yesterday. This comes shortly after a number of people died during the rap star's Astroworld concert in Houston, Texas.

    The Scott concert took place on November 5 in NRG Park. According to CNN, at least eight people ranging in age from 14 to 27 have died, with several others injured. Eyewitness reports say that crowds surged...

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
