From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition.

    Forge mode will also be missing at launch.

    343 Industries that they are delaying some fairly major parts of Halo Infinite for some unknown time after launch. The developers say that they want to focus on getting the single-player campaign finished along with the competitive multiplayer.

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard Official Reveal

    Call of Duty: Vanguard Official Reveal

    Reveal trailer omits "Activision."

    The full reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard happened today. There is a three-minute long trailer for it you can find below if you're so inclined. One thing that really isn't mentioned in the trailer is who is publishing the game. It seems like Activision is really nowhere to be found in the trailer, even at the very end there's a weird omission of the Activision logo.

    Maybe they're just trying to distance the game from, you know,...

    Skyrim is Getting Yet Another Release

    Todd Howard, you've done it again!

    A game called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was first released back in 2011 for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Perhaps you've heard of it? I doubt you have because it was such a small release from a relatively unknown developer named Bethesda. If you have heard of it, perhaps you also know that it was re-released in 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not before getting a Legendary Edition release in 2013. Yeah, it's true! It then came...

The game's setting is almost identical as well As we pointed out in that original article, the developers of Among Us say that were not contacted...
