Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

    Gambling in Video Games

    When we talk about the idea of gambling in video games, the first thing that may spring to mind are the onslaught of "loot boxes" that have become prevalent over the past half of a decade. While those are always a hot topic of conversation amongst gamers, critics, publishers, and even law makers, those aren't what we're here to bring attention to today. No, instead we're going to take a look at things like actual casinos within a variety of your favorite games. From slot machines to blackjack, games of skill and a bit of luck have been featured throughout gaming's long ...

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Trailer and Screenshot Reveals; Nvidia and Nixxes Collaborating on PC Version

    Yes, this should have gone up yesterday. It didn't because I wasn't feeling all that well so I hope you'll excuse me for this. However, yesterday Shadow of the Tomb Raider had a brand spanking new reveal trailer. It featured no actual in-game footage. It was in-engine, but not in-game. Bummer. We have that for you today along with word about how the PC version is being developed.

    First though, let's take a look at the various ways you will be able to purchase Shadow of the Tomb Raider across the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

  • Eastward Announced by Chucklefish and Pixpil

    Eastward Announced by Chucklefish and Pixpil


    Pixpil is the developer and Chucklefish is the publisher on the just announced game, Eastward. If Chucklefish sounds familiar, it's probably because they're the studio that developed games like Starbound and published games like Risk of Rain and Stardew Valley, to name a few. If Pixpil doesn't sound familiar, it's probably because they are a small studio based out of Shanghai and Eastward is their first game.

    Chucklefish provided a good bit of information today on Eastbound that includes a blog entry detailing some of the game's story and gameplay...

  • Phil Spencer Hopeful for "Classic Halo Experience" on PC

    Phil Spencer Hopeful for "Classic Halo Experience" on PC

    As part of a statement from 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint, it was stated by Spencer that they are "excited about the prospects of an official classic Halo experience making its way to PC."

    This all came about because 343 Industries and Microsoft had to take action against a recent "ElDewrito" PC release. This was a community created project that tried to revive the long dead Halo Online that was exclusively released for the Russian market back in 2014. ElDewrito took all of those assets and released what was essentially a hacked together Halo...
