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.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

    Hollow Knight: Silksong Store Page is Live on Xbox Store

    Of all the days...

    I know what you're thinking, but I can assure you that this is real. Hollow Knight: Silksong now has an official Xbox Store page. Prior to today, the game did not have any such official page for Xbox. Store listings for Hollow Knight: Silksong did already exist prior to today on the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Network, Steam, and on GOG.

    What does the appearance of this Xbox Store listing mean for the status of the game? Absolutely nothing or everything,...

    Nightdive is Apparently Readying a Release of PO'ed: Definitive Edition

    I'm like 99% sure this isn't a joke.

    Nightdive Studios is known far and wide for bringing some classic 90s titles to modern platforms with modern features and quality of life improvements. The studio worked on modern releases of classics such as Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster and 2023's fantastic System Shock remake.

    Battlefield 2042 Update 7.0.1 to Fix a Few Issues

    Bug fixes are incoming.

    The seventh season of Battlefield 2042 launched last week alongside Update 7.0.0. This week, DICE shared news of Update 7.0.1 that they hope to deploy on Tuesday, April 2nd.

    This update is a minor one, as you can probably tell from the version number. It does include a few game breaking fixes for issues that were seemingly introduced as part of Update 7.0.0, but nothing particularly major is included in this new update.

  • Generation Zero Celebrates 5th Anniversary with Free Weapon Skins

    Generation Zero Celebrates 5th Anniversary with Free Weapon Skins

    Five years on and the game is still getting updated.

    When Generation Zero released in 2019, it wasn't really all that great. The stealth-shooter had a lot of issues in all aspects of the game, making the stealth-action shooter rather mediocre at best. In these past five years, developer Systemic Reaction has worked continuously to update the game with fixes, improvements, and a bunch of new content. By most accounts, the current state of Generation Zero is quite good and a massive...

    Between the Rocksteady developed live-service Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and the "AAAA" quality Ubisoft developed Skull and Bones: Which is the bigger disappointment for you?
