It has been a ridiculous day for Sony when it comes to new details that have come out about the company's opposition to the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger.

First, a new report from The Verge's Tom Warren shared some key pieces of information from documents (PDF download) that were recently submitted to the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)....

Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

An easy purchase for new players but maybe a hard sell for existing owners.

It was not until I reinstalled the original PC release of The Outer Worlds that I was able to really appreciate the improvements made with the release of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

"I'm just not seeing what makes this Spacer's Choice Edition worth...

    Valve is Working on a Switch-like Handheld Console Named "SteamPal"

    New strings were discovered tucked away in the latest Steam update.

    The latest beta update for the Steam client has some interesting surprises tucked away within the code. The new client update has several strings that reference things like a "Neptune" controller alongside something else called "SteamPal." The prevailing theory is that Valve is working on a handheld console, perhaps similar to the Nintendo Switch, that will be called SteamPal when it is released....

    Maneater Out Now for Steam, Game Pass, and Switch

    Finally, something that isn't scheduled for May 27th.

    Today, as in right this second, you can play Maneater on PC via Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and even the Nintendo Switch. Though the game was available on the PC before today, it was locked to the Epic Games Store. We reviewed the initial release of the game back in June 2020 if you want to check that out. We found the game to be pretty decent, but nothing super great.

    The version available for Game Pass is for both the...

    Techland to Hold a Dying Light 2 Special Event on May 27

    Get ready for some fresh news about Dying Light 2 on May 27th.

    This past week, Techland sent me a little package with some interesting goodies inside. Included in the package were a letter, a mini-poster, and a mini flashlight. Of course, this was a bit more than just a courtesy package. It looks to be the start of Techland's media push for Dying Light 2.

    The flashlight turned out to be a blacklight. The included letter said that I'd have to hunt to know more. Putting...

    Sully Lacks Famous Mustache in Latest Uncharted Movie Image

    Seriously, where is his mustache?!

    A new image for the upcoming Uncharted movie surfaced today courtesy of the New York Times. The image shows off both Tom Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as Victor "Goddamn" "Sully" Sullivan. The image shows the two, I don't know... infiltrating a castle? Perhaps an old cathedral? Maybe searching a museum? It's hard to tell. It's a place with a lot of candles.

    Whatever they're doing, there's one thing that...

    Tired of seeing hot tub streams on Twitch? Well, tough! Because while they won't necessarily show up under the Just Chatting category on Twitch, they will now show up under the new "Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches" category instead. Yeah, it seems as though Twitch is embracing the sun, surf, and inflatable Pickle Rick flotation devices instead of banning them outright.

Monthly Poll


  • Poll: What Platform Do you Game on the Most?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Do you prefer consoles? PC? Maybe mobile is your preferred platform?

    This month's poll is a bit generic if only because I really don't know what to ask right now and this is the easiest thing that came to mind. The question is simple: Which sort of platform do you prefer to play games on?

    Do you like playing on consoles? Do you prefer to play games on PC? What about mobile games? Maybe you prefer to spend most of your time on your phone playing this, that, or the other....
    Consoles (Ex: PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, etc.)
    PC (Including Steam Deck)
    Mobile (Ex: iOS or Android phones/tablets)
    Standalone VR (Ex: Meta Quest 2)
    Other (Ex: No preference or maybe you play only at arcades or those handheld Tiger Electronic games)
