HexGaming Phantom PlayStation 5 Controller Review

In a market full of premium controllers, the Phantom manages to come out on top.

The PlayStation 5 DualSense is arguably one of the best first-party controllers to ever exist. This base PS5 controller already features amazing haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, motion controls, a touch pad, and a tried-and-true design that fits comfortably in most everyone's hands. Sony essentially combined some of the best features of the previous-generation PlayStation controllers and then added...

You ever write a three-page review for an energy supplement?

In early May 2024, 5-hour ENERGY (hereto after shown as 5-hour Energy) released a new Gamer Shot line of energy drink supplements. We got some news about it because this is a video game website that posts video game related news. That is how these things work. These 5-hour Energy Gamer Shots are available in three flavors: Pineapple Charge, Rocket Raspberry, and Apple Bash. Unless things have suddenly changed in the fe...

Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...

    Call of Duty League 2021 Coming to PC but There's a Catch

    Controllers only.

    The 2021 season for the Call of Duty League is making the move to the personal computer, or PC for short. The league, which was typically played on the PlayStation 4, will make its PC debut for this upcoming 2021 season.

    There's just one small catch.

    Even though the league will be playing on PCs in 2021, players will not be allowed to use a mouse and keyboard.

    That sure is a weird thing to mandate. Why move to PC...

    EA Kills Off Origin

    Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

    First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

    EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

    See Crysis Remastered Running at 8K in Latest Trailer

    Some would argue that's just too many K's.

    If you have been sitting on the fence about the upcoming Crysis Remastered, then perhaps today's massive trailer will sway you. I say it's massive because I'm talking about the size, not the length. We're about to experience an 8K trailer that shows off comparisons between the 2007 Crysis and the upcoming Crysis Remastered.

The upgrade to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will include 4K resolutions at up to 60 frames-per-second. This is a much higher resolution and framerate than any current version of the game, including the PC in many cases.

  • Watch Wannabe CSGO Cheaters Get Trolled by Fake Cheat Software

    Watch Wannabe CSGO Cheaters Get Trolled by Fake Cheat Software

    It's one of those "feel good" movies.

    Cheaters. We all hate them. If you ever played Counter-Strike over the many, many years that it's been around, you've probably encountered your fair share of cheaters big and small. We've all probably wanted to do something about it, but we've been at the mercy of anti-cheat software like VAC for ages now. What could we, a lowly player possibly do besides report and cross our fingers that the cheaters would eventually get caught?
