    Valheim and the Allure of Early Access

    When is it the best time to jump into an Early Access game?

    Often when people hear the term "Early Access" they think about games that are incomplete or filled with bugs. Sometimes they may worry that these games will be abandoned by the developers and never see a "complete" release of the title. While this fear may come true in a few cases, is it really worth missing out on some real gems of games while they're the current hotness?

    Two Years of Content Coming to The Division 2

    Title update 12 was supposed to be the end, but it's not dead yet.

    Bungie Says They Won't Expand the Destiny 2 Cosmodrome

    It only took them a few months to tell players.

    Last year, Bungie began the process of bringing back Destiny's OG Cosmodrome location in Destiny 2. This was being done ever since they started their whole, largely failed "Destiny Content Vault" idea that would see old content occasionally cycled in and out of the game. It wasn't the complete area but it was enough to provide an area for a bit of nostalgia and for onboarding new players. They said that they would bring over...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
