Report: Xbox, Sony, and Nintendo to Skip E3 2023

E3's big return sounds like it's more of a dud.

In September 2022, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced that E3 was returning. Not only was it returning, but it would be the show's first in-person event in four years.

Now, we're learning that none of the three major console makers will have any sort of presence at the trade show. Sony and Nintendo not having a presence probably isn't too surprising. Those two companies had already started to do their...
 

More Details on the Return to Classes in Battlefield 2042

Classes are coming back to Battlefield very soon. Here's what you need to know.

​We have known for a while now that DICE has been planning to re-introduce the traditional Battlefield Class system into Battlefield 2042. Today, DICE took the time to provide a lengthy write-up talking about the changes that are being made in order to add Classes into a game that really didn't have any.

DICE opens their write-up by saying that "Specialists at launch were polarizing to...
 

Update to Stadia Controllers Ensures a Life After Death

An update will allow you to connect to Bluetooth enabled devices.

According to the watch I don't own, Google Stadia is now probably shut down. Well, if it's not at the time of posting, it probably will be by the time you read this. Stadia was set to shut down on January 18th and, well, it's now January 18th.

At the 11th hour, Google released a new support tool that will allow those with a Stadia Controller to use it as a general Bluetooth controller. Without the use of...
 

Games to Look Forward to in 2023

I won't lie. I fully expected there to be far more news to post today (January 2, 2023) given that it's the start of the week and the holidays are "technically" over. What I failed to realize is that a ton of people are still off work due to the New Year falling on a Sunday. Thus, here I am opting to do a little write-up about what games I'm looking forward to in 2023 instead of sitting around doing nothing. Who knows, maybe you're looking forward to these games as well. If I missed some games ...
 

Total Gaming Network's 2022 Games of the Year

It is time once more to talk about the best games that have come out over the past year. As the case has been with previous years, this list of games only includes the titles that I have personally played to some degree. In addition, the games on this list are games that were released in 2022 unless otherwise stated for some specific reason. As I am the only one posting content on the site, this is as much a "Total Gaming Network Game of the Year" as it is my personal Game of the Year selection. ...

  • Interview with Benjamin Gifford, Vice President of Top Games Inc.

    Below is a recent interview with Benjamin Gifford, VP and a top developer on the company’s most popular game, Evony: The King’s Return.

    Q. How long have you been in this industry? And what is your impression of Top Games Inc. so far?

    I’ve been in the games industry since 2009. Before then, I was involved with intellectual property commercialization with industry and universities.

    What sets Top Games apart from game development peers is the focus not on perfection...

  • New Nvidia Driver Promises 'Significant' Performance Gains on 30-Series Cards

    The latest Nvidia driver sees framerate gains of up to 24% in some titles.

    Nvidia just released their first Game Ready driver for the newly released GeForce RTX 4090. The card is a beast in terms of performance, power consumption, size, and price. That is all without question. A new GPU release does mean that a new driver update is also necessary for early adopters, be they fortunate to get a card from a retailer or from the countless scalpers that have already put the 4090 cards up...

  • That Final Fantasy 7 Battle Royale Game is Already Shutting Down

    That Final Fantasy 7 Battle Royale Game is Already Shutting Down

    The game lasted only about a year.

    Square Enix announces that they are shutting down the servers for their mobile battle royale game, Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier. This title released back in November 2021 and will come to an unceremonious end on January 11, 2023.

    Today's announcement came with word that Square Enix just wasn't "able to deliver the experience that (they) were hoping to." This is despite the game having received fairly regular updates and...

  • Big Changes Just Hit the Steam Mobile App

    Big Changes Just Hit the Steam Mobile App

    The changes are more than just a new coat of paint.

    Valve just passed along word that they have completely revamped the Steam Mobile App. Though it sports a new design and some new features, Valve also says that it's built using a new framework. The framework stuff is more of the "behind the scenes" aspect to all of this, but a new and updated framework should mean the app is more responsive for users.

    Of the new features added is the ability to scan a QR code...

  • Double XP and a Free Skin Offered as Apology for Overwatch 2's Bad Launch

    Double XP and a Free Skin Offered as Apology for Overwatch 2's Bad Launch

    What will the apology compensation be for Overwatch 2 as a whole though?

    Blizzard is offering players double XP, a weapon charm, and a free skin in an effort to apologize for the abysmal launch of Overwatch 2. The studio extended a written apology to fans for the myriad of issues that impacted the game for several days right when the game launched on October 4, 2022.

    Overwatch 2 will have several double XP weekends coming up that will let players catch up. The game was...

    Meta Announces $1,500 Meta Quest Pro

    This is Meta's new business focused VR headset.

    Meta, formerly Oculus and Facebook, just announced a new high-end virtual reality headset. Dubbed the Meta Quest Pro, this $1,500 (USD) piece of hardware is the company's "most advanced headset yet."

    Set to release on October 25, the Meta Quest Pro is not a device aimed at gamers. In fact, it's not really aimed at anybody but businesses and professionals. That could, at least in this case, account for the reason...

  • Most of the New Cosmetics for Battlefield 2042's Liquidators Event are Locked Behind a Paywall

    What? You thought the promoted cosmetics were going to be unlockable just by playing?

    The promised Liquidators Event for Battlefield 2042 is here and, like most things concerning the game, it has proven to be rather disappointing for many players.


    First off, let's just address the elephant in the room. Most of the event skins that were used in the marketing and promotional materials for the event are locked behind a paywall. That's right, all but five skins (2 Specialists,...

    Volition Promises a Major Saints Row Bug Fix Update for November

    The company also revealed some rather anemic sales figures.

    The new Saints Row game had a hell of a rocky launch. It was panned by critics and fans alike for its myriad of bugs, performance issues, and repetitive gameplay. Sadly, while the gameplay part can't just be easily "fixed," the bugs and other issues can be addressed and that is precisely what Volition plans to do.

    In late November, Volition says they will release a major update to the game that will tackle...

    Modern Warfare 2 Players Need a Phone Number to Play

    Pre-paid phone numbers may not work.

    Activision Blizzard seems to be very keen on ensuring their potential players have mobile phones. You guys all have phones, right? When Overwatch 2 launched just last week, Blizzard had a policy in place right from the get-go that you needed a cellphone in order to play the game. The catch there was that this ruled out those using pre-paid phones.

    For a lot of people, this meant that they were now unable to play the game (Overwatch)...

    Arkane Confirms Longstanding Fan Belief About Deathloop

    Fans have believed this to be the case for a long time now.

    For the longest time now, fans of Arkane Studios have believed that Deathloop takes place in the same universe as the Dishonored titles. Besides sharing some of that familiar Arkane gameplay style, the two feature a number of similarities. These range from certain environmental design elements to the fact that both games share some similar usable abilities like Shift and Blink, among others. A weapon in Deathloop, named the...

    Origin is Dead, Long Live the 'EA App'

    EA says that Origin is now legacy software on PC.

    If you are still running the Origin client from EA, I just have to ask: What's it like living in the past, old man?! You need to get with the times and download the new EA app. This new launcher with the beyond generic name has been in development for well over two years at this point. It was announced as an update and rebranding for the Origin client on PC and, well, it's here. Yay?

    EA says that the EA app (no actual capitalization...

  • Poll: Which Horror Remake Are You Most Excited For in Early 2023?
    by Shawn Zipay
    There are at least three of them coming this year.

    It's near the start of the month. It's a new month, a new year, but probably the same you. 2023 will have a number of remakes and remasters released, same as the previous few years. While there are remakes and remasters of games such as Like a Dragon: Ishin and Risk of Rain Returns slated to be released in 2023, we're going to focus only on the horror remakes in the pipeline.

    That means, I'm asking just one simple question:...
    Dead Space (January 27)
    25.00%
    1
    Resident Evil 4 (March 24)
    50.00%
    2
    System Shock (March)
    25.00%
