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...

    Immortal Redneck Brings Roguelike FPS Action to Nintendo Switch on May 10

    Crema's Immortal Redneck has been given a release date of May 10 for the Nintendo Switch version of the roguelike FPS. It has circle-strafing. It has bunny-hopping. It has a bunch of weapons, like 50 of them. It has upgrades. It has modifiers. It has procedurally generated levels. Yep, it's certainly a roguelike FPS.

    Around 50,000 Minecraft Users Infected with Hard Drive Reformatting Malware

    According to a report from Avast, nearly 50,000 Minecraft users could be infected with malware that was installed when they downloaded a number of skins from the official Minecraft website.

This script, while unimpressive in the grand scheme of things, could format your hard drive, affect performance, or even cause various messages to appear in their account inbox such as "You Are...

    Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch Delayed Until Summer

    Dark Souls: Remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC will still be released on May 25. The Nintendo Switch version was supposed to be out on that date as well but it looks like that date has been pushed back to "later this Summer."
    The new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true DARK SOULS experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console.
    Just chalk it up to the game needing more time for some polish befo...

  • Sources Say Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to Ditch Traditional Single-Player Campaign

    According to a report that went up today from Polygon, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will not feature a "traditional" single-player campaign. It will instead focus more on the multiplayer and Zombie modes.

    Sources close to Polygon said that development by Treyarch on Black Ops IIII has been going rather poorly. As a result, it seems as though the single-player campaign wasn't going to be completed in time for the game's release date, which is still set for October 12, 2018. At some point, development then switched away from creating the single player...

  • Falke Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on April 24

    Falke Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on April 24

    Come April 24, Falke will join the fight as a new combatant in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. The character was created as an alternate clone for M. Bison. Falke was then "heavily experimented on by Shadaloo and was forced to train day in, day out to achieve perfection." She can "infuse Psycho Power into objects and release it through them." This is seen primarily by how she uses her staff, which she has named Harmony. All that training caught up with Falke, throwing her into a deep depression where she just wished to end it all. Thankfully, Ed came along ...

    Review: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4)

    How far would you go for family?
    For the past year now, the Yakuza series has been burning brightly on the PlayStation 4. We had the fantastic Yakuza 0 make its way to Western audiences early in 2017, followed up by the ever so slightly inferior but still amazing Yakuza Kiwami a few months later. Despite these games existing for more than a decade across three different console generations, these PS4 releases are the first time many of us have ever gotten to experience the amazing character of Kazuma Kiryu and his world. And now in early 2018 we have the...
