G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Dragon Age Director Mike Laidlaw Leaves BioWare

    Dragon Age Director Mike Laidlaw Leaves BioWare

    Mike Laidlaw, the Creative Director for the Dragon Age series, announced today that he is leaving BioWare. Laidlaw has spent 14 years with the company, offering his talents to games and franchises that include Jade Empire and, of course, Dragon Age.

    As for the next Dragon Age game? Well, things aren't looking too great. The last official word was that the game was in some very early stages of development. With Laidlaw parting ways, the future of the franchise comes into question. It also doesn't help matters that a number of Dragon Age related job postings have disappeared from the BioWare website. We certainl...

  • ESRB Doesn't See Loot Boxes as a Form of Gambling

    ESRB Doesn't See Loot Boxes as a Form of Gambling

    Loot boxes. We all know them, we all have a love-hate relationship with them. They're those things where you can spend currency to purchase boxes that contain "random" loot drops that range from cosmetics to gameplay altering gear. More often than not, these loot boxes can be purchased using real world currency. A lot of people feel as though this is a form of gambling.

    While it seems obvious that loot boxes are indeed a form of gambling, the ESRB doesn't seem to agree. Kotaku was the first outlet to get a response back from the ESRB about what they think about loot boxes and their relationship to gambling.

    Turtle Rock Studios Releases Fantasy RPG Only for Gear VR

    Turtle Rock Studios, the development studio behind games like Left 4 Dead and Evolve, have just released their new turn-based fantasy RPG, The Well. The big twist here is that it's a VR title. The even bigger twist is that it's a VR title made exclusively for the Samsung Gear VR.

    "That's funny, Zips!" I hear you, but I'm not joking. I never joke. I don't know how to.
    This original, turn-based, fantasy role-playing game is available to download today for $9.99 via the Oculus store. It is also playable for attendees of Oculus Connect 4. The Well is unlike anything Turtle Rock Studios has created before: a classically designed RPG crafted especially for VR with

  • PUBG Surpasses 2 Million Concurrent Players

    PUBG Surpasses 2 Million Concurrent Players

    Yo, Fortnite, it's good and all that you hit 10 million non-current players on a F2P game that is out on four separate platforms, but PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has hit 2 million concurrent players on just one platform (PC).

    Brandon "PlayerUnknown" Greene shared the exciting news earlier today via Twitter. From the looks of things, the peak today for PUBG was 2,016,498 players. The game with the second highest peak today was Dota 2 at just 622,839 players. What makes this especially significant is that this peak for PUBG happened during a weekday and nowhere near the typical peak of concurrent ...

  • Fortnite Battle Royale Surpasses 10 Million Players

    Fortnite Battle Royale Surpasses 10 Million Players

    Spawned as an offshoot of Fortnite and launched on September 26, 2017, Fortnite Battle Royale has already surpassed 10 million players. This free-to-play battle royale style game seems to have been a pretty safe bet for the team at Epic Games.

    Considering that just about a week ago we were talking about how Fortnite had hit 7 million players literally last week, that's not too shabby.
    Available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac, Fortnite Battle Royale drops 100 players onto one giant map where their combat and building skills are put to the test and the last commander standing wins.
    And now, it's time f...

    New Dust 2 Now Available in CS:GO Beta - Get Your First Look Here

    Here is your first good look at the changes that have been made to Dust 2 for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. I'm sure this is probably the first of many, many, many, many, many, many, many times you will see the updated Dust 2. See, because the joke is Dust 2 is played a lot.

    Valve put up a rather lovely guide that both shows and explains the changes they made to several key areas of Dust 2. For example, here is just a bit on the overall art improvement that they made.
