Microsoft Acquires ZeniMax for $7.5 Billion

It's official.

Microsoft has confirmed that they are in the process of acquiring ZeniMax Media for a cool $7.5 billion (USD) in cash. ZeniMax is the parent company of studios like Bethesda, creator of The Elder Scrolls, as well as id Software, the developer behind DOOM.

This acquisition is reportedly the "biggest video game purchase ever" for Microsoft.

At present, Bethesda has two games that are slated to arrive in 2021. Those include Deathloop...
 

PlayStation 5 Starting at $400, Launches Starting November 12

$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

The next-gen is now fully in gear. With Microsoft announcing the price and release date of their Xbox Series X, the only piece of the puzzle that remained was what Sony would do with the PlayStation 5. Today, the company announced that the Digital Edition will retail for $399.99 (USD) while the "regular" version with a disc drive will retail for $499.99.

Both consoles are expected to launch in select countries...
 

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    New Gwent 'Crimson Curse' Trailer Released


    CD Projekt Red released a new trailer today for their upcoming first expansion for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. We already talked a bit about the new expansion, called Crimson Curse, but today brings about some additional details on the new content that you can expect.

    First off, the trailer at the bottom is new. The trailer from the initial announcement was only a teaser trailer. This is the full trailer, clocking in at a whopping one minute and 13 seconds. It talks about...

    This release is slated for Wednesday, March 20 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Why this game? Why now? No idea! The original release...

  • Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores

    Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores


    Valve has had a major problem these past few years with user submitted reviews. One of the biggest issues with user reviews, be they on Steam or anywhere, is when a push is made by a community to review bomb a game or other form of media. These usually result in a ton of negative reviews in a short span of time for a product because of some perceived slight by a studio concerning a game.

    Steam displays user scores in a couple of ways. They show the average of the most recent...

  • Security Researchers Find '39 Percent' of Counter-Strike 1.6 Servers Used to Spread Malware


    This week, security researchers from Russia's Dr.Web (PDF), filed a report saying that roughly 39% of Counter-Strike 1.6 servers were used to spread malware to users. The report, filed on Monday, found that these malicious servers exploited a remote code execution (RCE) flaw in the game client to spread a new malware variant called Belonard.

    These servers were nothing more than proxy servers set up to display low pings, enticing players to try to connect to them. When players...

  • Epic Games Launcher Allegedly Scrapes Local Steam Data Prior to Granting Consent, Epic Responds

    Earlier today, Reddit user PhoenixPoint and ResetEra member Madjoki found out that the Epic Games Launcher may be collecting your Steam history at startup. As part of their investigation, they found that at startup, the Epic Games Launcher searches your local computer for a Steam install. If it finds that Steam is installed, it then apparently proceeds to pull a list of files typically stored in your Steam Cloud. This data includes game saves for all users that have logged in to Steam on your computer....

  • Turtle Rock is Making a New Zombie Filled Co-op FPS Game

    Turtle Rock is Making a New Zombie Filled Co-op FPS Game


    Turtle Rock Studios, the development studio that created Left 4 Dead and who eventually brought us Left 4 Dead 2 and Evolve (but let's not talk about that one) is working on a new co-op FPS. And just like Left 4 Dead, this new title will also include plenty of zombies.

    The game is called Back 4 Blood (I see what they did there) and it will be published by WBIE. It's a bit early to say how this one will turn out since a lot of the old Turtle Rock kind of merged with Valve for...

  • Bloody Palace Mode Arrives April 1 for Devil May Cry 5

    Bloody Palace Mode Arrives April 1 for Devil May Cry 5


    Capcom announced today that the free Bloody Palace Mode for Devil May Cry 5 will be released on April 1.

    No, this isn't an early April Fools joke. They actually make sure to point this fact out in the press release.

    Bloody Palace Mode has been a fan favorite and has been included in every Devil May Cry game aside from the first game. It's a bit like a wave-based game mode that has enemies that grow in strength the further along you go.

    Four Sniper Elite Projects Announced - Includes a V2 Remaster, VR, and More


    Developer Rebellion announced today four separate Sniper Elite projects that are being worked on. These include a full sequel to Sniper Elite 4, which I'm guessing will be called Sniper Elite 5 though the press release doesn't state as such.

    There is also a VR Sniper Elite project that is being worked on, a Switch release of Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition, and Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a thing. Why V2? Why not the first Sniper Elite game? Man, I don't know!

  • Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details

    Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


    The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

    I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

    Firestorm finds 64 players battling...
