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...

Pre-orders for both consoles will begin on September 22.

In addition to this, Microsoft announces that...
 

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...
 

Tiananmen Square Footage Removed from Call of Duty Trailer

Activision bending the knee? What? No. Never!

The first trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was blocked in China and then later edited from every other region because it contained roughly one second of footage from the Tiananmen Square protests from 1989. This is when the Chinese government had a big uh "crackdown" on pro-democracy protesters. That is to say, they murdered the fuck out of their citizens, or made them "disappear," and attacked them with...

    The Sinking City Delayed Until June


    Though originally slated to be released on March 21, 2019, the upcoming investigative horror title, The Sinking City, has been delayed. The new release date for the title is now June 27, 2019. This delay applies to all platforms, those being the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    We got a nice gameplay video for The Sinking City last week. The video showed off some of the investigation parts of the gameplay. I mean, it makes sense, doesn't it? You are a detective after all. You...

  • Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now

    Devil May Cry 5 is Out Now


    Fans of the franchise are already well aware, but for the rest of us: Devil May Cry 5 is now available globally. This is the latest in the long-running Capcom developed franchise that saw its peak back with 2013's highly rated DmC: Devil May Cry. This was a game that scored better than the previous three releases.

    Actually, according to reviews, the franchise peaked at the very first game, but it's more amusing to say DmC was the best game out of all of them.

  • Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles

    Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


    Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

    The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that...

  • EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019

    EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


    EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

    EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not...

    Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April


    The cardboard industry is about to get another big boom in April. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for the Nintendo Switch this week. It's slated to hit stores on April 12 and includes a basic kit, a big kit, and two optional expansions.

    From the descriptions of the kit, it sounds a lot like Google Cardboard with the added benefit of having various motion controls added in via the Switch Controllers. For kids, it's probably going to be amazing.

    As with...

  • Players Discover that Anthem's Most Powerful Weapons are the Ones You Start With


    Today, a little "PSA" went up on the Anthem subreddit that says clearly that the level 1 weapons players start the game with are the most powerful weapons in the game.

    If you think that doesn't make much sense, you would be correct but there are multiple confirmations showing that this is indeed what is going on. Reddit user YeetLordSupreme found that a level 1 common Defender rifle can take down a basic enemy in just four shots. Meanwhile, they found that their level 45 masterwork "Ralner's Blaze" rifle takes six shots to take down the very same enemy.

    This is in spite of the basic weapon showing damage of just 286 per shot compared to the 1184 damage per shot with the level 45 weapon. ...

  • Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25

    Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25


    Late last night, Sega announced that Judgment will be released in the Americas and throughout Europe on June 25. This reveal came last night via Twitter along with a few additional details about a pre-order bonus.

    Fans of the Yakuza games will want to keep an eye on this one. Why's that? Because it's set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise, made by the same developers, and contains some of the same gameplay elements. However, this is not a Yakuza game, it's merely a spin-off....

  • Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam

    Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam


    It took some time, but Valve has finally decided that a visual novel "game" about raping women during a zombie apocalypse maybe isn't a good fit for Steam.

    The game is (was?) called Rape Day and the premise is pretty much what I said in the line above. The game glorified verbally harassing women, killing them, and raping them throughout the story. The game was under review from Valve and, after multiple articles went up about the game, did Valve see fit to pull its...
