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."

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 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...

    Spider-Man is Coming to Marvel's Avengers but Only on PlayStation

    This news confirmed by Sony.

    PlayStation and Crystal Dynamics confirmed that Spider-Man will be coming to Marvel's Avengers. That's the good news. The web slinger will be added as a free update post-launch to the game but only if you are playing on a PlayStation. That exclusive bit would be the "bad news."

    This news was confirmed in a PlayStation Blog posting. Crystal Dynamics says that Spider-Man will be added to the roster in early 2021 at no additional cost...

    Ok, it's not "technically" an anime.

    When you pictured the grand return of Sam Fisher and the Splinter Cell franchise, I bet you did not expect it to be in the form of an animated series (or mobile game). Yet here in 2020, where we have come to expect the unexpected, we are about to get just that. An animated series based on Splinter Cell is in the works.
