Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

  • Respawn Launches Apex Legends, a Free-to-Play Battle Royale Set in the Titanfall Universe


    As expected, a new battle royale game from the Titanfall developer, Respawn Entertainment, was just released for the PC via Origin, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It's called Apex Legends and while it does away with the Titans, it still retains much of the parkour style running and traversal that fans of the series love.

    Players will select one of eight different "Legends" that all have unique abilities. As with most battle royale style games, the last team standing...

    The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 4 Arrives March 26


    The fourth and final episode for The Walking Dead: The FInal Season will be released on March 26 from Skybound Games. This date is also the day in which the physical release hits store shelves.

    Episode 4, entitled "Take Us Back," will bring Clementine's journey to its end. What do you think the odds are that they let her live at the end of the series, or will they pull a Lee on us? At the rate this franchise has gone, I'd say it's about 40/60, not in her favor....

    Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Expansion Arrives July 2


    The Shadowbringers expansion for Final Fantasy XIV is slated to be released on July 2. Square Enix provided this news today alongside some fresh information about the expansion.

    For instance, did you know that the Viera will be a new playable race? It's true. You may recall them as the tall, rabbit-eared race from Final Fantasy XII.

  • 2018 Games of the Year

    2018 Games of the Year


    A week or two ago I took you through some of the games I felt were the worst video games in 2018. There were a variety of reasons included for why those games made that list, ranging from the games just being broken to the games just being boring.

    Today, we're going in the opposite direction. Today, we are going to look at some of the best games of 2018. The list, with one exception is in no real particular order. I will try to keep it brief since this is probably already a...

    This weekend's rumor of a free-to-play Titanfall branded battle royale game sure picked up traction in a hurry.

However, since then it seems that other sources are now coming forth to say that "yes, there is actually some merit to this rumor."

    Apparently, a free-to-play Titanfall battle royale game will be released this Monday. The release will happen on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation...

    An Official Groundhog Day VR Game was Just Announced


    The original Groundhog Day movie came out back in 1993. It starred the always fantastic Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. It was written and directed by Egon himself, Harold Ramis (may he rest in peace).

    The premise was simple: A weatherman (Murray) is stuck in Punxsutawney, PA doomed to repeat February 2, otherwise known as "Groundhog Day," for all eternity. It was part comedy, part depressing realizations, and part romance all rolled into a single film set in one...

    Cyberpunk Thriller '>observer_' Arrives on Nintendo Switch February 7


    One of my favorite games from 2017, Observer (stylized as >observer_), is coming to at least one more platform. That platform is none other than the Nintendo Switch. On February 7, the cyberpunk world of Observer will put your detective skills to the test for $29.99.

    Observer was developed by Bloober Team, the Indie team that also developed Layers of Fear, which I also greatly enjoyed. The game is already out for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 if those are your preferred platform. ...

    The PC release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is finally here. It arrived a bit later than its console versions. The PC version seems to be only available through Steam. I'm just as surprised as you are.
