EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

The first trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was blocked in China and then later edited from every other region because it contained roughly one second of footage from the Tiananmen Square protests from 1989. This is when the Chinese government had a big uh "crackdown" on pro-democracy protesters. That is to say, they murdered the fuck out of their citizens, or made them "disappear," and attacked them with...

    It's about time.

    Now that Microsoft revealed their prices and availability dates for their Xbox Series X|S, it makes sense that Sony would quickly need to play catch up. Sure, Microsoft's hand was probably forced by those Xbox Series S rumors, but that's neither here nor there at this point.

    Immortals Fenyx Rising Trailer and Gameplay Showcase

    Breath of the Greek mythology.

    Ubisoft showed off a bunch of new footage yesterday during their Ubisoft Forward event for Immortals Fenyx Rising. Yes, it looks a lot like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it's not Breath of the Wild. Got it? It's not, no matter how much it looks like it is in both appearance, visuals, and the variety of gameplay elements and puzzle solving techniques. It's totally its own thing.

    You play as Fenyx, a new winged demigod that is...

    Did I ever tell you...

    "The definition of insanity." That line is something that most everyone who has played through Far Cry 3 should know by heart now.
