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...

  • Battleborn Goes "Free" to Play with a "Free Trial" Starting Today

    Battleborn Goes "Free" to Play with a "Free Trial" Starting Today

    2K and Gearbox announced today that Battleborn now has a free "trial." It is being unceremoniously called Battleborn: Free Trial and it grants unlimited access to the competitive multiplayer and maps all without time limits, level caps, or any planned end date. Yes, they have very carefully not called it "free to play" in their announcement. So I guess Pitchford can still be "technically" correct about the game not going "F2P." So this "free trial" differs from being a full "free to play" in what way? Well, it seems as though the trial has a rotating cast of six...

  • PlayStation 4 Owners Spend 26 Billion Minutes a Week Gaming and Other Fun Facts with Shawn Layden

    We have some more PlayStation focused numbers for you today. Sony revealed that PlayStation Network users spend 26 billion minutes per week playing games. This works out to a bit shy of 50,000 years. When you take that figure and average it out over the 60+ million PlayStation 4 owners, that's about seven hours per week per user. Sony also revealed today that one-in-every five PlayStation consoles purchased is a PlayStation 4 Pro. The company also revealed that PlayStation VR has now sold more than one million units around the world, a figure largely kept low by ...

  • Sony Promises Less Talk, More Games for E3 2017

    Sony Promises Less Talk, More Games for E3 2017

    Similar to the previous years, Sony is again going for a "less talk, more rock more games" approach to E3. Sony's E3 2017 press conference, which is scheduled for 9PM (ET) on Monday, June 12, will once again put the focus on video games.

  • Horizon Shipped Over 3.4 Million Copies

    Horizon Shipped Over 3.4 Million Copies

    It has been reported today that Horizon Zero Dawn has "sold" more than 3.4 million copies as of April 30. That is a period of roughly two months since the game's release. Now, I say "sale" because it has not been specified if those units were sold through to consumers or simply sold to retail outlets, though Sony has only revealed sold-through figures on recent reports. It was however specified that at least 915,000 of that 3.4 million figure were digital sales directly to consumers. Shawn Layden briefly touched upon the success of the digital store in statemen...

  • Ronaldo Named Cover Athlete for EA Sports FIFA 18

    Ronaldo Named Cover Athlete for EA Sports FIFA 18

    Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the global cover athlete for EA Sports FIFA 18. For those not in the know, Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid C.F. As the resident soccer expert, I feel confident in saying that the "C.F." stands for "Courageous Footy."
    To deliver innovation in FIFA 18, Cristiano Ronaldo's data was recently recorded during a training session at a mobile EA Capture studio in Madrid. Data capture of Ronaldo's acceleration, run cadence, skills, and shooting technique were all recorded to bring veracity to his likeness and personality in FIFA 18. His data
