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...

  • 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...

  • 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 we...

    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

    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.
