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.

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...

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...

    Blizzard Renames Battle.net Client Yet Again: Now Blizzard Battle.net

    First it was Battle.net. Then, it became Blizzard or Blizzard app. At some point there was something about "Battle Tech" or "Blizzard Tech" (I honestly still don't know which one). Now, Blizzard is going to call it Blizzard Battle.net. This totally not confusing announcement came earlier today by Blizzard, makers of Blizzard Battle.net.

Discord said today that they have shut down an alt-right server and a number of associated accounts.
    A few followup tweets by Discord said that they do "not read people's private conversations." However, they will "take action when...

  • No Man's Sky 1.3 Update Adds Multiplayer, Terrain Editing, Better Combat, and So Much More

    The 1.3 update for No Man's Sky is here! Among the many changes, improvements, and additions in this update are the beginnings of online multiplayer! Yes, nearly one year after the game launched and broke a lot of hearts, the team at Hello Games seems to have been super busy putting together one incredible update. Based on the changes in the 1.3 update, this could be one of the biggest turnarounds for a game I've yet seen.

    Up to 16 people can now adventure together, exploring planets cooperatively. Hello Games says that this is only the beginning, so expect to see more improvements made to the multiplayer going forward. You can edit terrain. New portals will take you to and from distant planets without the need of your ship. Space combat has been given a major boost. You can now properly fly when close to the planets' surfaces. And much more.

    Let's take a look at the 1.3 "Atlas Rises" update changelog....
