Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

  • Fable Trademark Renewed

    Fable Trademark Renewed

    Indicative of nothing.

    Microsoft has renewed the trademark for Fable. This comes shortly after the company kind of downplayed the significance of a Fable placeholder Twitter account.

    The fact that Microsoft has renewed the Fable trademark signifies literally nothing. However, this is also something that I know a number of people will be interested in knowing. Companies renew trademarks all the time. For instance, Nintendo held on to the Eternal Darkness trademark for God...

    Ubisoft Announces New Battle Royale Game Hyper Scape

    Stop me if you've heard this one before...

    100 players enter, but only one will be crowned the winner. Such is the idea behind a genre known as "battle royale." Ubisoft must have heard about how hot this genre was and decided to make their own entry just a couple of years from when the battle royale genre was at its most fevered pitch.

    Their new game is called Hyper Scape and it is a 100-player battle royale game set in a sci-fi urban setting. Unlike many other...

  • A Plague Tale: Innocence Surpasses 1 Million Copies Sold

    A Plague Tale: Innocence Surpasses 1 Million Copies Sold

    Impressive numbers for a great game.

    I reviewed A Plague Tale: Innocence a little over a year back now. It quickly became one of my favorite titles of 2019, having only been surpassed by the Resident Evil 2 remake. The characters, the visuals, the gameplay, and the story all made for a complete package that I honestly believe more people should play. I even randomly bought a copy of the game for an online pal during the Steam Summer Sale.

    As it turns out, over 1 million...

    Epic Abandons Fortnite's Story Mode and 'Free-to-Play' Plans

    Fans and hopefuls have little reason for celebration today.

    In 2011, Fortnite: Save the World was revealed to the world during the Spike Video Game Awards. It was billed as a cooperative game akin to Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead, where you and some friends can get together and fend off a custom built base from hordes of baddies. It was unique for the fact that you had to harvest resources from around the map in order to build up your base, with different materials creating different...
