BoTh SiDeS

That email urged employees to be respectful of "differences of opinion" on abortion rights. Ryan's email then went into five further paragraphs talking about his two cats' first birthday.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Ryan's email opens by addressing various current events....
 

Noclip Gives Us a Long Look at Canceled Half-Life 2: Return to Ravenholm

This is the longest look yet at the canceled Half-Life 2 spin-off from Arkane and Valve.

Back in 2006 and 2007, Arkane Studios (Dishonored, Prey) was working on a Half-Life 2 spinoff title called Return to Ravenholm (or simply Ravenholm). Development on the game began at Junction Point Studios between 2005 and 2007 with a team led by Warren Spector. The idea was to create a spin-off episode that would explain the backstory of the trap filled Ravenholm and Father Grigori.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review (PC)

Ranks among the best of the Borderlands franchise.

Right out of the gate, I must say that I would consider myself a fan of the Borderlands games. I have played through the first game about two times, the second game about three times, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel about 1.5 times, and Borderlands 3 at least once. I frankly cannot remember if I played through the third game twice, once solo and once with friends, or if I just played through it all once with friends. And really, the less...

  • Starfield and Redfall Delayed Until 2023

    Starfield and Redfall Delayed Until 2023

    This is not completely unexpected.

    Bethesda took to Twitter today to announce that both Starfield and Redfall have been delayed. The games will no longer launch within 2022 and are now expected to be released in the first half of 2023.

    Redfall is the open-world, vampire-slaying, co-op game that is in development at Arkane Austin. We really haven't seen much about the game since it made its debut at E3 2021, even though it was supposed to be out some time this Summer....

  • Dying Light 2 Story DLC Delayed

    Dying Light 2 Story DLC Delayed

    The season of delays is upon us again.

    Techland tweeted out some unfortunate news earlier today. The first planned story DLC for Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been delayed. The new story content is now expected to be released in September.

    Techland says that they simply need more time to develop the new content. That is pretty much the entirety of this.

    To keep fans occupied until September, there will be some smaller bits released in the months preceding it....

    Deathloop Updated with Photo Mode and FSR 2.0 Support

    Plus plenty of accessibility features have been added or tweaked.

    An update for Deathloop was just released that adds in a new photo mode, adds in AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 support, and includes UI, HUD, and several accessibility options.

    As announced just yesterday, Deathloop is the first of a handful of games confirmed to utilize AMD's new FSR 2.0 upscaling technology. The latest implementation of the upscaling tech promises to deliver better visual quality...

    First Games to Use AMD's FSR 2.0 Upscaling Announced

    Besides Deathloop.

    In June 2021, AMD launched the 1.0 release of what they call FidelityFX Super Resolution. This was kind of AMD's answer to Nvidia's DLSS technology, except it did not require the use of special hardware and could be used by graphics cards dating back several generations. FSR allows users to upscale an image to provide them with better performance while still looking kind of good.

    FSR 1.0 isn't perfect, nor does it do as good a job as DLSS, but it did...

  • Elden Ring Sold 13.4 Million Copies in First Month

    Elden Ring Sold 13.4 Million Copies in First Month

    This is officially FromSoftware's most successful game to date.

    The final tally is in, and it seems like Elden Ring sold over 13.4 million copies in a bit over its first month of availability. This makes Elden Ring the best selling FromSoftware title of all time.

    Of course, we kind of already knew this. We previously heard that Elden Ring sold over 12 million copies in its first three weeks of availability. That means that an additional 1.4 million copies were sold over...

  • 2001 Build of Duke Nukem Forever is Available for Download

    2001 Build of Duke Nukem Forever is Available for Download

    You're right, it's not yet June.

    Word about the 2001 build of Duke Nukem Forever being leaked out into the wild just earlier this week. At the time, the leaker known by the handle of "x0r" said that they would probably release this build in June some time. Until June, all we would have to tide us over would be a handful of screenshots and short video clips.

    As it turns out, June came early this year as the unfinished build of Duke Nukem Forever is now available...

  • Wolfire's Antitrust Lawsuit Against Valve is Back On

    Wolfire's Antitrust Lawsuit Against Valve is Back On

    Wolfire's amended lawsuit is given the greenlight by the court.

    In April 2021, Wolfire Games filed a lawsuit against Valve. The lawsuit claimed that through Steam, Valve somehow suppresses the competition. The lawsuit was dismissed in November 2021 because it failed to meet necessary standards for the court. Wolfire had 30 days to amend their complaint and refile it. They did just that and a judge has now ruled that the case may move forward.

    The original lawsuit from...

    Epic Settles with Fortnite Cheat Seller, Donates Money to Charity

    A real win on all fronts.

    Epic Games recently filed a lawsuit with the Federal Court of Australia against a Fortnite cheat seller. Brandon "BlazeFN" Despotakis was accused of selling Fortnite cheats as well as in-game accounts to other players. Epic filed suit against him in April 2021.

    A ruling by the court found that Despotakis violated the Fortnite EULA and terms of service. The cheats sold include aimbots.

    He was also found guilty of infringing...

    EA Announces EA Sports FC to Replace FIFA Games

    Who needs FIFA? Not EA apparently.

    It's no surprise that EA and FIFA haven't seen eye to eye over these past several months. FIFA wanted to charge EA a cool $1 billion (USD) every four years to continue using the FIFA license. EA balked at the idea, citing the cost and creative restrictions as the reason, and decided to part ways from FIFA going forward.

    Today, EA officially announced that after the release of FIFA 23, the studio will officially change the name of their...

    Fight fight fight. Kiss kiss kiss.

    On May 9, we shared some news that a 2001 build of Duke Nukem Forever was leaking media across the Internet. That build is supposedly going to be released in June. The story really doesn't end there though.

    When news started to circulate about this Duke Nukem Forever leak, Duke Nukem co-creator George Broussard said on Twitter that the leak sure looked like the real deal. He also said that he wasn't really keen on talking more about it...

    A major sales milestone was also just hit for this relevant game.

    Today marks the release date for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Game Pass version of This War of Mine: Final Cut. Final Cut is said to offer the "most polished" experience for the game.

    The Chinese government has added some new rules when it comes to how children consume various livestream content. New restrictions in China are trying to prevent children from tipping streamers as well as trying to prevent them from streaming themselves without parental consent.

    A report by Reuters says that this is the latest action by the government to curtail the "chaos" of online...

  • 2001 Build of Duke Nukem Forever Might be Released in June

    2001 Build of Duke Nukem Forever Might be Released in June

    A leaker wants to get this out to the public.

    For better or worse, Duke Nukem Forever sure is a video game. At one point, however, it was an almost completely different game. A version of Duke Nukem Forever that was shown at E3 2001 ended up being nothing like the final release that Gearbox put out in 2011. If you need some sort of a reminder of 2011's release, I did write a review for Duke Nukem Forever (the images are long gone). At the time, I found it to be rather mediocre as did...
