System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

Later tonight, The Game Awards will be streamed live. That all kicks off at 8:30PM (ET) and can be watched online at places like Twitch, Steam, Mixer, Twitter, YouTube, consoles, other websites, and even at select movie theaters.

We already knew that.

What we didn't know until just a short time ago is that Geoff Keighley has also organized a special bonus treat for everyone. Today, he announced The Game Festival. The Game Festival, going live right...
 

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

For the past dozen or so years, MLB The Show has been developed by San Diego Studio, a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Sony has also had the exclusive rights to develop and publish...
 

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

The other big surprise today is the fact that Cloud Chamber has...
 

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

    Nintendo Switch Surpasses Wii to Become Fastest Selling Console in US

    According to a Tweet by Nintendo from earlier today, the Nintendo Switch has become the "fastest selling video game system of all time" in the United States. Additional details provided by Nintendo say that in the period from March 3 through December 31, 2017, Nintendo sold 4.8 million Switch units. That figure is just for the States. Total worldwide sales figures were not revealed today.

    To compare, the incredibly well received Wii sold just 4 million units in the same span of time. The Wii was the previous king of "fastest selling console." Keep...

  • Mad Catz is Back with New PC Hardware

    Mad Catz is Back with New PC Hardware

    Last April, we reported that Mad Catz was no more. The studio had filed for bankruptcy following poor sales, namely from the lackluster sales of their Rock Band 4 peripherals. It didn't really help that they were the co-publisher for the game which failed to make waves as the franchise did back in its heyday.

    However, Mad Catz is back. The company announced today that "Mad Catz is back in the game." Yes, the company that made your favorite third-party gaming peripherals is on the scene once again with some hot new PC gaming hardware. The announcement...

    The latest update for GTA Online technically came out yesterday but I didn't see the email until today. It matters now, however, because the new vehicle is still new and the savings on various in-game vehicles runs through to January 8.
    To kick off 2018 with a bang, the Annis Savestra Sports Classic is now available for purchase at Legendary Motorsport. The Sevestra also comes ready for a bevy of optional upgrades such as machine guns, to be installed in either an Avenger or Mobile Operations Center Vehicle Workshop.

    According to the Monster Hunter Twitter account, Monster Hunter World is "currently being optimized for (the) PC" and is planned for...

  • The Best Games on Steam in 2017

    The Best Games on Steam in 2017

    There were a lot of video games released in 2017. Most of those seem to have been released on Steam, even a metric ton that you probably have no idea even exist. I'm looking at you, oh let's just say... Evil Come. What with your two user reviews. Yeah, you.

    Even still there were a lot of games that did get noticed in 2017. Games like Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt seemed to do a-ok in 2017, earning spots in the "Platinum" tier of the best sellers in 2017 on Steam. That's actually even more impressive when you consider...

  • Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age DLC Finally Appear on Origin

    Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age DLC Finally Appear on Origin

    For the first time in literally years, the DLC for Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age: Origins have appeared for sale on Origin. To be more specific, the DLC is available for sale in bundles for each game. Hey, it's still a step up from being only able to buy the DLC through BioWare using their BioWare Points. Who thought that was a smart thing to keep doing when Origin has been around for years? How did it literally take years for this to happen?! And why can you still not buy the DLC items separately?! UGH!

    The Mass Effect...

  • Jim French, Voice Actor Known for Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Half-Life 2 Has Passed Away

    Jim French, the voice actor behind Bill in the Left 4 Dead games, passed away on December 21 at the age of 89.

    French brought a force and a life to Bill that immediately made him my go-to choice any time my friends and I played a game of Left 4 Dead. He continued to breathe life into Bill for a special mission in Payday.

    French also provided the voice for Father Grigori in Half-Life 2. He was the lone Fisherman in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. Dota 2 players will know him best as the voice of the Elder Titan. Back in 1959, long before acting in g...

  • Nintendo Delays 64GB Switch Game Cards Until 2019

    Nintendo Delays 64GB Switch Game Cards Until 2019

    At present, the physical game cards for Switch titles can only reach sizes of 32GB. That's not all that great for games that can easily be nearer to double that size. Meaning that even if you purchase the physical release, you may still be stuck with a huge download when you go to play. Nintendo originally planned to switch over to 64GB cards in the second half of 2018. It now looks like that plan has shifted until some time in 2019. Nintendo informed developers of this delay quite recently. They claim it's due to "technical issues" though no other specifics were pr...
