In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

Later tonight, The Game Awards will be streamed live. That all kicks off at 8:30PM (ET) and can be watched online at places like Twitch, Steam, Mixer, Twitter, YouTube, consoles, other websites, and even at select movie theaters.

We already knew that.

What we didn't know until just a short time ago is that Geoff Keighley has also organized a special bonus treat for everyone. Today, he announced The Game Festival. The Game Festival, going live right...
 

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

For the past dozen or so years, MLB The Show has been developed by San Diego Studio, a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Sony has also had the exclusive rights to develop and publish...
 

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

The other big surprise today is the fact that Cloud Chamber has...
 

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

  • Silent Night - A Ghost Story for Christmas Coming this December

    Silent Night - A Ghost Story for Christmas Coming this December

    Silent Night - A Ghost Story for Christmas brings its ghost-hunting adventures to Steam this December. December seems like a very appropriate time for this to be released, perhaps tied with a late October release.

    This is the first time the series makes the move to 3D.
    Silent Night - A Ghost Story for Christmas is a spooky festive tale, set at Northfield Church during an endless Christmas Eve. Beyond the Church, the Carrion Woods await, where the wood-dwellers still haunt the pines and rocky places. Nigel Danvers, ghost-hunter, encounters the

    Valkyria Chronicles 4 is Now Available on Consoles and PC

    I do not know much about the Valkyria Chronicles franchise, but I do know that this press announcement for the release of Valkyria Chronicles 4 included a picture of a dog and that's a-ok in my book. You can see the dog in the thumbnail for the trailer below. In all seriousness though, Valkyria Chronicles 4 continues with the turn-based strategy RPG gameplay fans probably already know and love. This entry allows you to "experience the other side of the Second Europan War" and the "Operation Northern Cross" campaign. The base version of the game is available f...

  • Former Employee Files Lawsuit Against Telltale for Breaking Labor Laws

    Former Employee Files Lawsuit Against Telltale for Breaking Labor Laws

    The recent and very sudden closure of Telltale left many in the gaming industry saddened. Fans were sad because it their favorite franchises may never be finished or given a sequel. More importantly though, hundreds of employees were let go without advance warning and without severance pay.

    This is a big "no-no" when it comes to little things like "laws."

    A former employee of Telltale is now suing the company in a class-action lawsuit. Polygon reports that the lawsuit was filed in a federal court in San Francisco on Monday. It was submitted by Vernie Roberts on behalf of himself and the other workers that were laid off this past Friday. The suit says that Telltale did not give "cause" and did not give them "advance written notice as required by the WARN Act."...

  • Devil May Cry 5 Has Microtransactions. So What?

    Devil May Cry 5 Has Microtransactions. So What?

    Over the weekend, the Internet lost its collective mind, as it tends to do, over Bowsette Peachowser the revelation that Devil May Cry 5 will have microtransactions. These microtransactions will allow you to get a bunchy of Red Orbs, the series equivalent to experience orbs. The microtranactions are there as a way to fast-track your ability to unlock new moves in the game.

    GameSpot first noticed the microtransactions during some hands on time with Devil May Cry 5 during the Tokyo Game Show. They asked the game's director Hideaki Itsuno what the deal...

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Has About 200 Species of Animal for You to Hunt and Skin

    Rockstar would like to inform you that Red Dead Redemption 2 will have about 200 species of animals, birds, and fish. All of these creatures will "behave and respond to their environment in a unique way." I am assuming that every single one of these animals will be able to be hunted, killed, and skinned. It just wouldn't feel right if you couldn't do that in a Red Dead Redemption sequel. Rockstar also passes along word that there are 19 different breeds of horses that you will be able to find in the world. These 19 breeds will have "59 different styles of coa...

    Android 17 Officially Added to Dragon Ball FighterZ Roster

    Another combatant is entering the fight in Dragon Ball FighterZ. That fighter, if you didn't reads the big line above this, is none other than Android 17.
    During his initial introduction into the DRAGON BALL universe, Android 17 was known to be a reckless anarchist, a trouble maker, and a real heel. After experiencing death and being brought back to life by Shenron, his brush with great-beyond caused Android 17 to take-on a life of peace and obscurity.
    Also, Bandai Namco passes along word that players will be able to unlock a the content of the Z Capsule i...
