Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...

    Next Game from BioShock Creator is Reportedly in 'Development Hell'

    Ken Levine's newest project is said to be stuck in "development hell."

    Developer Ken Levine has a rather impressive list of titles under his belt. He has worked on games such as Thief: The Dark Project, System Shock 2, and the first three mainline BioShock titles. About eight years ago, Levine announced his new project with his new studio, Ghost Story Games. Since then, not much about the game has been revealed.

    According to a new report by Bloomberg, the lack...

    Sony Reveals a Solid PlayStation Plus Lineup for January 2022

    Another solid lineup for PlayStation Plus subscribers awaits you in the new year.

    Sony just revealed the PlayStation Plus lineup of "free" games that are coming for subscribers in the new year. As has been typical for the past several months, the lineup is a rather solid one, especially in comparison to recent Games with Gold Xbox titles from Microsoft. Of course, this is all very subjective, but I just can't shake the feeling that the PlayStation Plus games have just been...

    Valve Reveals Steam's Best Games for 2021

    Contrary to popular belief, not everything was delayed in 2021.

    Once again, Valve employees have poured through the data over the course of hundreds of hours to produce a list of the biggest and best-selling games available through Steam in 2021. It's either that, or they just had a program compile all of the data for them, but the alternative sounds more thrilling.

    Valve has broken down Steam's "Best of 2021" into several categories. They have listings for the...

    Starting off the new year with a, uh, well... they're free at least.

    Microsoft has announced their Games with Gold "free" games for January 2022 already. I assume this early announcement is due to those silly things like Christmas and New Years coming up at a rapid rate.

    These games will start to be available starting on January 1, 2022. The games include NeuroVoider, Aground, Radiant Silvergun, and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. As always, these games are "free"...

    Sully's Mustache Appears in Newest Uncharted Movie Trailer

    All is right with the world.

    A new trailer for the Uncharted film came out this week. It features a lot more of Tom Holland's Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg's Victor "Sully" Sullivan in action.

    Perhaps the biggest thing of note in the new trailer is the appearance of Sully's iconic mustache. The lack of a mustache in the film's first trailer was something that I certainly took issue with (along with most other fans of the franchise). I still feel like the mustache...

    It's that time of year again. The time of the year where snow... Well, snow should be falling but global warming would rather give us unseasonably high temperatures. It's also the time of year where gifts are given and exchanged in a ritual ceremony known as Christmas. Yep, it's the holiday season again and that means it's time for the big Steam Winter Sale.

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
